Sennheiser launches Flex 5000, a smart listening solution for those unwilling to compromise on TV sound
If you are seeking to improve your personal TV listening experience, there’s now no need to choose between flexibility, superior audio quality and design. With the new Flex 5000 Sennheiser has created a digital wireless audio system for headphones that intensifies TV sound without compromises. It makes it effortless to tailor the sound according to personal preference and to increase speech intelligibility – all while using one’s own choice of headphones.
A new smart listening device from the leader in the European TV headphone market, the Flex 5000 brings Sennheiser’s renowned audio quality and leading-edge digital wireless technology to an elegant solution for enhancing TV viewing.
“Flex 5000 is aimed at people who are too experienced to accept bad sound and want a personalized solution that ensures their continued full enjoyment of the TV experience,” said Irene Strüber, Head of Portfolio Management Audiology at Sennheiser. “Truly a smart listening product, Flex 5000 offers an innovative and refreshing solution that combines outstanding sound performance, durable, high-quality design and timeless style.”
Tailored sound at a touch
The Flex 5000 makes it easy to precisely tailor the sound to meet one’s individual taste. It provides a choice of three different hearing profiles to enhance TV, movies or music, as well as a volume control. It also features a unique Speech Intelligibility button that dynamically reduces TV background noise for crystal clear dialog, making speech easier to understand at a touch.
Flex 5000 offers the ultimate freedom and flexibility by letting users plug in their own choice of wired headphones to further personalize the look and sound of the solution. It comes supplied with Sennheiser’s MX 475 in-ear headphones, but users could choose to use their existing favorite wired headphones.
Effortless wireless listening
The Flex 5000 uses leading-edge digital wireless technology to deliver brilliantly clear sound. With its impressive 30 meter range and a durable integrated battery that allows for 12 hours of consecutive use between charges, the device offers total wireless freedom.
The system has been designed to be supremely intuitive, making it easy to quickly tailor the sound according to personal needs by simply pressing the + button on the receiver. Clear LED indicators for wireless connection and battery status on the receiver and docking station add further to a system that is effortlessly simple to set up and use.
The Flex 5000 features a sleek, attractive base station, with high-end design that lets it fit discretely under a TV or be part of a home entertainment system. When charging the battery, this unit serves as a smart docking station that lets the Flex 5000 lie horizontally – compact and tidy. The Flex 5000 is available as of now.
