This slick peripheral combines a DAC and a headphone amp. It connects to PCs or Macs via Micro-USB and has 3.5 mm headphone, microphone, and aux jacks. It supports audio sample rates up to 24-bit / 96 kHz, and drives headphones from 16 to 150 ohms. It also has 7.1 surround sound using EPOS’s Binaural Rendering Engine.
Audio expert Sennheiser’s new premium MOMENTUM 3 wireless over-the-ear headphones offer up rich and balanced studio-quality sound, along with sophisticated noise cancelling tech. They’re substantial but comfortable, with softly cushioned earpads, and a leather headband. Available now at Best Buy.
Sennheiser aims for the top with its first-ever speaker. The Ambeo soundbar has 13 drivers, including six 4″ woofers. It mimics a 5.1.4 surround sound system with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support. We went ears-on with the soundbar at the IFA Global Press Conference, and it sounded spectacular.
If you’re gonna pay more than $50,000 for a set of headphones and an amp, it better be special. While we haven’t had the privilege of listening to Sennheiser’s Orpheus HE 1060 system, the way they present themselves when turned on certainly lives up to the price tag.
Peculiar but versatile closed-back headphones. The new HD 630VB gets its name from its variable bass. It has a dial on the right earcup for adjusting the low-end and controlling mobile device playback. It also has an inline mic and removable earpads. More at Head-Fi.
