Sennheiser presents its new HD models

Why not simply take your good mood along with you wherever you go? Whether you’re on public transport, out in the street or at home, Sennheiser’s three new headphones guarantee you’ll have a smile on your face wherever you are. While the HD 218 and HD 228 are superb headphones in their own right thanks to the full bass sound they produce, the addition of the accurate, balanced sound of the high-end HD 238 Precision headphones makes the range a real winner.

These headphones not only sound fantastic, they ensure you have a great time too: “The new HD models boast features which guarantee you will experience first-class sound when you’re on the move; they have been optimised for use with MP3 players, Apple iPods*, Apple iPhones* and other portable devices,” explains Sennheiser Product Manager Maurice Quarré. “The top-of-the-range HD 238 Precision is ideal for music fans who really value concise and detailed sound reproduction.” The light and compact construction of the headphones means they are perfect for music on the move. Individually adjustable ear cups also ensure they are comfortable enough for you to spend hours listening to your favourite sounds. In addition to its portable credentials, the HD 238 Precision is configured to provide maximum enjoyment from the music played through your home-based sound system as well!

HD 218: dynamic bass reproduction
No matter where and when, you’ll always be pleased you have your HD 218 along for company. Its full sound and dynamic bass reproduction help keep your spirits up even when you’re on the move. The closed ear cups screen out non-musical sounds – the clatter of the underground train, the chatter of the people sitting next to you and street noise outside. The HD 218 doesn’t just sound good though, it looks good too, with its stylish and elegant black over-ear design. RRP $99.95

HD 228: first-class bass performance
Sounds good; the HD 228 and its rich bass delivery produces a sound you will love to listen to all day long. It’s stylishly too; the elegantly curved headphones look great whether you chose HD 228 Black or HD 228 White. High-performance neodymium magnets guarantee a crystal-clear stereo sound with first-class depth reproduction. Like the HD 218, the closed headphone design ensures that loud sounds, generated either externally or from within the headphones themselves, meaning you have uninterrupted listening and those around you can enjoy their peace as you listen. The extra soft ear pad cushioning also means the HD 228 can be worn comfortably for hours on end. RRP $149.95

HD 238 Precision: high resolution stereo sound
Just relax, lean back and enjoy first-class sound quality – your favourite music has never sounded like this. The HD 238 Precision is a winner thanks to its balanced stereo sound – whether you’re at home or out and about. Its sound properties are optimised for both portable devices and for connecting to a home-based sound system. An improved transducer with high-performing neodymium magnets and a frequency response of between 16 and 23,000 Hz ensures concise and accurate reproduction. And it’s not just the sound that’s a delight: the high-end headphones have an open design and combine a classic look with high-quality, stabilising metallic elements. And when you’re on the move, simply pop the HD 238 back into its protective black pouch. Now, doesn’t that sound good? RRP $199.95
