Luxury safes blog want to share with you the launch of amazing Orpheus. The Orpheus HE90 electrostatic headphones system originally conceived of by audio titans Sennheiser in the 1990s was the high fidelity headset of record. Sennheiser itself could not better it over the years and for good reason. Electrostatic headphones are in an entirely different class to the headphones that sit on your desk at work.
This latest iteration of the aural wonder costs some $55,000. To give you some context, the Orpheus is in the same league as the new Porshe Cayman and the Audi TT. Ok, that is probably unfair to the Orpheus and we apologize for the digression.
In the 71 years that Sennheiser has been putting out exceptional high fidelity equipment, none can compare to the Orpheus HE90 elecrostatic system released in the 1990s. That is, until now. A new Orpheus headset was unveiled last year and it comes with some magnificent upgrades.
Turning it on is an actual visual experience, with buttons and tubes slowly emerging from the Carrara marble integrated amplifier. Audio, of course, matches the swanky design. The Orpheus earphone diaphragm is just 2.4 microns thick – lighter than the air around it – which means it produces almost no resonance on its own, and with this level of tonal clarity, you’ll hear parts of your favourite song you never knew existed.
In fact, it’s able to produce sounds you literally can’t hear, at a frequency that goes all the way to 6Hz, well past the human hearing range. The marble casing isn’t just for show either, helping to suspend the amp’s eight vacuum tubes so as to eliminate any airbone noise.
