Three new sets of 'phones for musicians 14/06/04We got a taste of the upcoming Summer NAMM show (July 23rd-25th) from Sennheiser with their news that they have three new sets of cans aimed at the musician. The EH150, EH250, and EH350 headphones each offer ultra-efficient, highly accurate performance and legendary Sennheiser quality at a low price point
"perfect for home recordists and DJs with oft-restricted budgets."
All three models feature semi-circumaural ear cups, which surround the
user's ears, while still offering a non-bulky, low profile design and
drastically reduced outside noise interference (EH150, EH250). Their
efficient performance characteristics allow use with semi-professional
recording equipment with low-level, -10dB V unbalanced output signals, as
well low output portable music sources. Most importantly, the EH Series
offers the detailed acoustic accuracy that professional-grade Sennheiser
headphones are widely known for, allowing users to trust what they hear
while making critical mixing decisions.
The EH150 offers a sealed design; 18Hz to 18kHz frequency response; a
maximum SPL of 115dB at 1kHz, 1V RMS; and a total harmonic distortion level
of just <0.5%. The EH250 also offers a sealed design; a 14Hz to 19kHz
frequency response; a maximum SPL of 112dB at 1kHz, 1V RMS; and low total
harmonic distortion level of only <0.2%. The EH350 features Sennheiser's
trademark OpenAire design; 14kHz to 22kHz frequency response; a maximum SPL
of 112dB at 1kHz, 1V RMS; and a total harmonic distortion level of <0.2%.
The EH150, EH250, and EH350 feature high-quality, ten-foot oxygen-free
copper cables; have an impedance of 32 ohms; and are priced at $59.95,
$99.95, and $139.95, respectively.
