Sennheiser HD 630VB honored at iF DESIGN AWARDS 2016
Old Lyme, Conn., March 10, 2016 – At the iF DESIGN AWARDS 2016 in Germany, Sennheiser’s cutting-edge HD 630VB has been honored with the prestigious iF Label in the Product Design category. The closed audiophile headphones impressed the jury of 58 international design experts with their innovative and premium design. Altogether, the judges considered 5,295 entries by 2,458 participants from 53 countries.
Sennheiser’s HD 630VB was developed in cooperation with Berlin-based design studio, nr21 DESIGN, following the audio specialist’s clean and contemporary design ethos. One of the latest additions to Sennheiser’s family of high-end audiophile headphones, the HD 630VB is a breakthrough product that delivers audiophile-quality sound in a circumaural closed-back design, which helps insulate the listener from external noise. Its design reflects the headphones’ ability to deliver the experience of high-end sound virtually anywhere - combining take-anywhere durability with desirable good looks, while radiating cool, purpose and performance.
Powered by Sennheiser’s proprietary transducer technology, the HD 630VB offers an audiophile listening experience, with the power to deliver a more intense bass sound via a rotary bass dial – an innovative design feature that makes it effortless for the user to match the intensity of lower frequencies to their exact preference. The adjustable headband also makes it easy to achieve the perfect fit, while soft ear pads make even longer periods of listening comfortable.
“The pure design of the HD 630VB is consistent with Sennheiser’s minimalist modern design language. It unites clear shapes with maximum comfort in a perfect marriage of form and function that speaks to the user even before the first note of music is heard,” said Oliver Berger, Head of Global Design Management at Sennheiser. “As a closed headphone that can still offer audiophile sound, it is a unique creation. It is therefore a true honor to receive the iF Label for a product that we have strived to make truly special in every way.”
The HD 630VB is crafted from premium materials including strong yet lightweight aluminum, which is used on the ear cups, yokes and sliders to give lasting durability and excellent portability for a full-sized headphone. This is complemented by a collapsible design and a hard carry case for convenience when using the headphones on the move.
