Launching the HD 630VB, audio specialist Sennheiser is introducing its first closed audiophile headphone model at the HIGH END show in Munich. The circumaural headphones deliver balanced, audiophile sound and offer a distraction-free listening experience, whether at home or on the move. Featuring a rotary bass dial, the HD 630VB allows for the user to customize the bass response according to their personal preferences.
Audiophile sound with optional bass boost
With the launch of the closed-back HD 630VB, audio specialist Sennheiser combines the brilliant sound of open audiophile models with excellent ambient noise attenuation. The new headphones deliver an impressively spatial sound image, while allowing for the users to enjoy their listening experience without any distractions. “The HD 630VB is a milestone for Sennheiser: For the first time, we translated our long-standing experience in the field of high-end audio into a closed-back design. Featuring passive noise cancelling, the HD 630VB reliably insulates the user from ambient noise, so he can fully focus on his music”, said Axel Grell, Portfolio Manager Audiophile at Sennheiser.
Specifically developed for the HD 630VB, Sennheiser’s proprietary high-performance transducer is the “heart” of this model. It delivers the power for an intense bass experience which can be customized via a rotary bass dial according to the listening environment, the music being played and the user’s individual preferences. With total harmonic distortion of less than 0.08 percent (at 1 kHz and 100 dB sound pressure level) and thanks to a coil wire made from pure aluminium, the HD 630VB achieves an unaltered sound image with a precise reproduction of voices and instruments in the midranges and brilliant trebles.
Exceptional sound experience at home and on the move
With an impedance as low as 23 Ω, the HD 630VB is an ideal companion to portable music devices as well. Offering a frequency response of 10 to 42,000 HZ, the headphones are suitable for reproducing high-resolution audio files. Enjoyment of quality audio on the move is effortless thanks to a collapsible design that has been crafted from lightweight materials: Sennheiser used dampened aluminium on the ear cups, headband and sliders. “We chose these robust materials to ensure maximum durability”, said Axel Grell. “Additionally, we made sure the ear pads are exchangeable and easy to replace.” Featuring a remote control on the right ear cup and a microphone which has been integrated into the high-quality OFC cable, users can comfortably control music and take calls on current smartphone models.
Clean design language and excellent comfort
Styled with Sennheiser’s clean, contemporary design ethos, the HD 630VB radiates cool, purpose and performance, combining great comfort with desirable good looks. The adjustable headband lets users achieve the perfect fit, while the soft ear pads give enhanced comfort even over long periods of listening enjoyment. “The HD 630VB impresses with both its exceptional sound performance and its minimalistic modern design”, said Axel Grell.
The HD 630VB will be available through selected Sennheiser sales partners from June. Sennheiser offers a two-year warranty on the headphones.
