Affordable -Performance Headphones Models Bow From Sennheiser

Two New Lightweight, Comfortable Designs Bring Serious Personal Listening to New Generation

Old Lyme, Connecticut - Sennheiser Electronic Corporation, the U.S. presence of the German firm synonymous for more than three decades with high -performance headphones for music listening, has unveiled its latest "entry -high -end" designs. The Sennheiser HD 201 and HD 215 are closed, dynamic headphones that feature extended, accurate response, impressive dynamic potential, and remarkable comfort.


"The HD 201 and HD 215 bring the real Sennheiser personal listening experience to impressively affordable levels," says Sennheiser Electronics' vice president of marketing, Stefanie Reichert, "so we expect them to reveal to a whole new generation just how close to the music they can get."

Both the HD 201 and HD 215 are "over -the -ear," closed -back designs that deliver outstanding attenuation of ambient noise, encouraging the wearer to become fully immersed in sound without undue distractions. Good as the HD 201's ambient -noise attenuation is, the HD 215's is even a bit better; it also features a rotatable earcup that makes adjustment to the one -eared use favored by DJ and radio -station users quick, easy, and comfortable. A single -sided, coiled, detachable (and replaceable) cable is another "pro" HD 215 feature such users are certain to notice.

Each of the new Sennheisers features exceptionally smooth, natural, extended response. The HD 215 produces nearly an octave of deeper "infra -bass," to a tooth -rattling 12 Hz vs. the HD 201's "mere" 21 Hz, while both models challenge the upper limits of human hearing with ratings of 18 and 22 kHz.

And both models deliver dynamic potential to spare for reproducing any musical style with real -world levels and impact, with SPL limits of 108 and 112 dB. So despite their unusually lightweight, comfortable designs, the HD 201 and HD 215 stand ready to create true "high -end" personal listening experiences, with the natural tonalities and impressive dynamic impact experienced listeners expect from any headphone carrying the Sennheiser name. And of course, both carry Sennheiser's two -year warranty.

Sennheiser's new HD 201 and HD 215 are fitted with rugged, kink -resistant cables and 1/8 -inch (3.5mm) stereo plugs, and packaged with 1/4 -inch (6.3MM) stereo -plug adapters to make them ready for use with virtually any home or portable music system. The HD 201 and HD 215 will be available March 2005, at Sennheiser's suggested retail prices of $24.95 and $149.95, respectively.
