Sennheiser Unveils Two New Headphones

Affordable Home-Listening Models Highlight Comfort, Performance

Old Lyme, Connecticut -Two new home -listening headphone models from Sennheiser feature the kind of detailed, dynamic sound that has made the German firm synonymous with hi -fi personal listening for more than 30 years. Sennheiser Electronic Corp., the company's U.S. arm, has introduced the HD 465 and HD 485 models, a pair of over -the -ear Open -Aire headphones that feature outstanding comfort, superb sound, and surprising value.


The HD 465 and HD 485 both employ a new evolution of Sennheiser's exceptionally capable and accurate dynamic driver design. Employing high -current aluminum voice -coils, these deliver superb clarity and remarkably wide -range performance: 16 -24,000 Hz for the HD 485; 18 -21,500Hz from the HD 465. Both models provide impressive dynamic potential, for lifelike reproduction at real -world levels, translating all the impact and excitement of live music to the personal listening experience.

Further differentiating the two new Sennheisers is the convenient headphone -holder supplied with the HD 485. Easily attached to a table or shelf, or virtually any horizontal or vertical surface, this gives the HD 485s a safe, convenient "home" when not in use.

The HD 465 and HD 485 combine a lightweight design (just 220 grams), ergonomic headband geometry, and large, ultra -soft earpads crafted from high -grade materials to deliver luxurious comfort for even extended listening sessions.

Users will find the detachable (and replaceable), snarl -resistant single -sided cords found on both new models to be a welcome feature -and they will find extra peace of mind with Sennheiser's unique two -year warranty.

The HD 465 and HD 485 will be available March 2005, at Sennheiser's suggested retail prices of $79.95 and $99.95, respectively.
