ENTER A NEW ERA OF GAMING AUDIO http://hummingbirdmedia.com/clients/sennheiser/press-releases/enter-a-new-era-of-gaming-audio http://hummingbirdmedia.com/clients/sennheiser/press-releases/enter-a-new-era-of-gaming-audio Tue, 09 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0500 When you take your gaming seriously, performance matters and seeing and hearing everything with pinpoint precision can prove decisive. When you compete at this level, you need a gaming headset that’s just as focused on your needs: Introducing the new GSP 600 from audio specialist Sennheiser. Building on the success of the GAME ZERO, acclaimed as the ultimate closed gaming headset, the new GSP 600 improves on its predecessor with even better audio performance, improved microphone performance, as well as increased comfort and durability. No matter how long the gaming session and no matter how intense the action gets, the GSP 600 lets you keep cool and in control. It features a range of ergonomic enhancements that include an all-new ear pad design, an innovative adjustable headband to customize contact pressure, new materials and an advanced hinge system for a better fit.

The new Sennheiser GSP 600 comes with an improved speaker system, new ear pad design and an innovative adjustable headband

The new GSP 600 delivers a truly excellent sound performance that shatters expectations of what a gaming headset can do: It features a new and improved speaker system designed and manufactured by Sennheiser, with improved aluminum voice coil speakers that ensure an exceptional audio experience with an increased sub-bass range that powerfully adds impact to games and movies. This warm deep bass never overpowers the well-controlled mid-range and finely detailed high frequencies, for incredible fidelity and realism that lets you hear every detail and react faster.

With its advanced, broadcast quality microphone, the GSP 600 provides high-end noise cancellation that ensures crystal clear gaming communication. Controlling game audio is fast and intuitive: The mic can be quickly muted by lifting the boom arm, while a volume control wheel integrated into the ear cup offers brilliant convenience.

Level up your comfort
Featuring a new, more ergonomically shaped and ultra-deep memory foam pad design, the GSP 600 mirrors the contours of the ear for improved noise insulation and wearing comfort. This new design shields the user more effectively from external noise and prevents sound from escaping between the ear pad and the face to preserve the intensity of bass frequencies. The ear pads also help you keep your cool with a luxurious combination of materials for both style and comfort: While leatherette is used around the edges of the ear pad, a cooler feeling suede-like material is used around the ear that won’t stick to the skin – even in the heat of the action.

The GSP 600 also introduces an advanced solid metal hinge system that gives even more freedom of movement and also increases the durability for which Sennheiser products are renowned. This innovative mechanism improves the fit by catering to a wider range of face shapes – pivoting smoothly to conform just as well to narrow or broad jawlines. To adapt to different head sizes, Sennheiser has introduced an innovative Adjustable Contact Pressure feature to the headband that can be customized according to each user’s preference to ensure the headset feels perfectly snug and secure without ever feeling too tight.

“In the creation of the GSP 600, we took our very best closed gaming headset and made it even better,” explained Andreas Jessen, Head of Product Management Gaming, Sennheiser Communications A/S. “The GAME ZERO broke new ground by building a high quality audio headset that was created entirely around the needs of gamers. With its successor, the GSP 600, we have stayed true to this ethos with a headset that even more perfectly matches the needs of each individual gamer – with an exceptionally comfortable fit that can be tailored to each person, so they can truly become one with the game.”

The GSP 600 is multi-platform compatible for gaming with PC, Mac as well as consoles featuring a 3.5mm jack input. Use with lower-powered mobile devices is improved thanks to reduced impedance acoustic system that makes it easier to game on the go.

The GSP 600 is available from the end of January 2018 at the recommended retail price of 249.00€ or 249.95$. As all Sennheiser products, the GSP 600 is built to last and comes with a two-year worldwide warranty.

THE GAME CHANGER FOR CLOSED-BACK AUDIOPHILE HEADPHONES http://hummingbirdmedia.com/clients/sennheiser/press-releases/the-game-changer-for-closed-back-audiophile-headphones http://hummingbirdmedia.com/clients/sennheiser/press-releases/the-game-changer-for-closed-back-audiophile-headphones Mon, 08 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0500 Sennheiser is redefining the limits of audiophile sound – with the new HD 820 which will first be showcased at CES. The closed-back dynamic stereo headphones deliver astonishingly transparent sound, thanks to a unique glass transducer cover that minimizes resonances – an innovation that ensures an incredibly realistic and natural sound field.

With a more than 70-year history of setting performance standards in sound, Sennheiser is once again redrawing the map with the creation of the HD 820. The new circumaural dynamic stereo headphones shatter expectations of what was thought possible from a closed-back model and set a new benchmark in sound quality for this type of design.

“Whether on the move, at work or at home, the passionate audiophile will always want to appreciate their music to the full,” said Axel Grell, Portfolio Management Consumer at Sennheiser. “Usually, high-end headphones require an open-back design, which has placed limits on where you can enjoy true audiophile sound. The HD 820 is a game changer that delivers exceptional sound while insulating the listener from their environment. I consider them to be the most transparent-sounding closed-back headphones in the world.”

The HD 820 establishes a new reference standard for its class, with an incredibly realistic and natural sound field. This breakthrough performance has been achieved through a special innovation: Over each of the legendary Sennheiser Ring Radiator transducers are unique glass covers. Revealing the acoustics within, the patent-pending curved Gorilla glass serves to reflect the sound waves from the rear of the transducer to two absorber chambers, which results in minimal resonance.

Engineering an unparalleled listening experience
Manufactured in Germany, the headphones feature a robust metal headband with an inner damping element, and silver-cladded OFC cables and gold-plated plugs. Meanwhile, the ear pads have been handcrafted from high-quality non-allergic synthetic leather and microfiber to cushion and insulate the listener from ambient noise. Together, these carefully selected components and materials delight every sense while producing an unparalleled listening experience.

Complete the Sennheiser audiophile experience
Sennheiser’s HDV 820 amplifier for dynamic headphones is the perfect companion to the HD 820. With its consistently symmetrical signal processing and extremely low harmonic distortion, the amplifier ensures unadulterated and perfect music enjoyment when paired with audiophile headphones. A specially tuned symmetrical, impedance matching cable with low capacitance is included with the HD 820 to guarantee seamless performance from this audiophile duo.

Both HD 820 and HDV 820 feature Pentaconn connectors – the new standard for balanced outputs. This offers a lower contact resistance than all other connections for headphones to produce minimal distortion and a more transparent sound reproduction.

The new HD 820 will be available from early summer 2018 for 2,399 EUR/2,399.95 USD (MSRP).

CES 2018 takes place in Las Vegas from January 9 to 12. To experience and learn more about HD 820 and other product news, visit Sennheiser in South Hall 1, Booth 20606.

Despite its feather-light 14g weight, it is tough enough to take anywhere, thanks to its robust build quality and durable materials.

With a six-hour battery life, the CX 6.00BT has been designed to complement busy lifestyles, with convenient fast charging via USB that can add two hours of battery time in just ten minutes and can be fully charged in only 1.5 hours.

The award-winning MB 660 headset for unified communications was one of two finalists in the “Networking: Voice/Data/UC category” in the CRN Tech Innovator Awards

The CRN editors evaluated 216 products submitted to this competition across 32 technology categories. Criteria included “technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges,” according to CRN’s statements. The competition is designed to spotlight hardware, software, and/or services that have helped to drive the IT industry forward.

Audio as an Open-Office Productivity Tool
The MB 660 Series of headsets have been specifically designed for workers in distracting open office spaces, whose collaborative work areas often are distinguished by high noise levels. The headset utilizes adaptive active noise cancellation, allowing the user to automatically or manually adjust the level of noise cancellation the headset will provide over the course of the workday. The product’s capacity to help workers mediate ambient noise allows it to perform as a workplace tool, supporting the user’s ability to focus, which in turn contributes to productivity. In addition, this UC-certified device employs finely engineered technology that ensures superior speech transmission during voice calls, including multiple integrated directional microphones, which creates a high-quality listening experience for the caller as well. These are only a few of the sophisticated MB 660 features that were presented for review in the CRN award program.

Sennheiser and MouthMedia Network have collaborated to create podcast hubs, starting in New York. The podcast hubs will also serve as a merchandising space for hosts and guests of the MouthMedia network

The new studios are intended as podcast hubs, where approved third party podcasters can book time for free with their guests to utilize the high-quality professional recording environments to create podcasts on a variety of topics — including a podcast this Wednesday that focuses on 3D audio. The MouthMedia Network studios will feature Sennheiser experience areas where studio hosts and guests alike can try Sennheiser products and obtain special discounted podcasting bundles on microphone / headphone combinations.

“Sennheiser is excited to collaborate with MouthMedia Network — starting in New York City,” says Stefanie Reichert, Director Trade Marketing, Retail, Americas at Sennheiser. “MouthMedia Network created an engaging platform with the most influential and authentic voices in lifestyle podcasting. For Sennheiser, we see tremendous synergy and potential as we look forward to success through our combined efforts.”

The idea for a collaboration resulted from a successful series of three live podcasts recorded by MouthMedia Network at the Sennheiser SoHo pop-up store in New York City during its run between October 2016 and February 2017.

“From our first live podcast recording at the SoHo pop-up store, we knew that Sennheiser was an ideal collaborator for MouthMedia Network,” say Pavan Bahl, Vision and Strategy for MouthMedia Network. “Podcasting is a medium that relies exclusively on audio, so clarity and fidelity are of paramount importance. With Sennheiser’s heritage of innovation in audio technology it is a privilege to have our new studios powered by Sennheiser. Bringing together our community of high-engagement influencers with Sennheiser’s audio prowess is likely to result in increased awareness for both brands.”

With podcasts in the United States alone exceeding 67 million regular listeners, the medium continues to prove its relevance and growth potential in the digital media economy. “It’s a very dynamic way to listen to a story,” Bahl says. “It captures imagination, but it is also a way of consuming content as a secondary activity to things like driving a car, riding the subway, or writing an email. We are finding that many people who used to acquire information through videos or blogs are turning to podcasts for this reason.”

Sennheiser, with popular products in both the professional audio and consumer electronics sectors, offers industry-leading technology for both podcast creators and podcast listeners. From dynamic and condenser microphones to a wide assortment of wired and wireless headphones, Sennheiser’s passion for innovation informs the company’s drive to meet the needs of the growing podcast market.

“With a selection of our lifestyle products available on-site at the MouthMedia Network studios, content creators not only get to experience Sennheiser’s superior quality but will have the ability to take that Sennheiser experience home with them,” says Reichert. “This includes the AMBEO SMART HEADSET for 3D audio recording, our HD1 Wireless and PXC 550 Wireless headphones and other models.”
