  • Sennheiser Worth The Price?

    Just because a company charges a certain amount for a product does not guarantee it will live up to the promises, or earn the sticker price. The only way to know would be to strap these puppies on yourself. Read on and make up your own mind.

    At $50K, Sennheiser’s Orpheus Are The World’s Most Expensive Headphones

    When it comes to high-end audio, hyperbole is the marketing department’s prime directive. But when Sennheiser claims it has made “the best headphones in the world,” the company is dead serious. And although we’ve seen nothing more than a short glimpse of these sparkling cups of of sonic glory, on specs alone, we’re inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt. Introducing the Sennheiser Orpheus.

    Named after the original Orpheus HE90 (which carried a $16,000 price tag back in the ’90s) the new Orpheus are a second coming of sorts, bundled with a hand-crafted amplification setup designed to complete a sonic system that surpasses everything that has come before it. The price for this outstanding engineering achievement: approximately $50,000. To put that into perspective, you’d have to purchase two of these top-tier WA 234 Mono headphone amps from Woo Audio, along with a pair of the Abyss 1266 Deluxe headphones — and then throw in a gently used Kia Optima — just to get close.

      I agree. More of a status symbol than anything else. I would be willing to bet that 9 out of 10 people could not discern any improvement in sound quality when compared to other high end headphones that cost a fraction of what they want for these. Just another example of the severe income inequality created by all our governments rampant money printing.

      Sennheiser makes some good stuff. Like their mics, but the price for the highest end stuff (from any vendor) I think is simply there for bragging purposes for the purchaser.

      You're right Kimgee, the vast majority of people (including serious audiophiles) couldn't determine the differences between good stuff, and the unobtainium, without serious instruments to show the minute differences.
