How do they do it?
Inside the Orpheus the patent-applied-for circuit design combines the best of tube and transistor amplifiers, to provide the ultimate audio experience.
Integrated amplifiers for ultra-high impulse fidelity: The purest of all audio, shielded from the outside world, emerges from the heart through the Cool Class A MOSFET high-voltage amplifiers. Integrated directly into the cups of the headphones, its ultra-high impulse fidelity patented amplifier stage increases efficiency by 200% over other currently available solutions.
At its heart is a vault of pure silence, locked in with Sennheiser technology and heavily guarded against interference of any kind. Measuring just 0.01 percent at 100 dB SPL at 1 kHz, Sennheiser has created a product with lower distortion than has ever been measured in sound reproduction equipment. Nothing stands in the way of the listening pleasure created by this monument to sound. Not even airborne noise: High-quality quartz bulbs around the vacuum tubes eliminate all acoustic noise from the outside world. In order to create truly outstanding electrical and acoustic performance, Sennheiser utilizes electrodes crafted from gold-vaporized ceramics. 2.4 micrometer, platinum-vaporized diaphragms will set a new standard in perfection.
An unprecedented, ultra-wide frequency range from 8 Hz to more than 100 kHz will exceed the human auditory range – and would be only perceivable by the combined hearing abilities of bats and elephants. Crafted without compromise, the sound rises from the amplifiers through the silver-plated cables, chosen for optimum conductivity.
The Orpheus converts digital music data to analogue signals using the ESS SABRE ES9018 chip. To create a visually stunning design, control dials are painstakingly crafted to the highest quality. Each dial is milled from a single piece of brass before being plated with chrome. The amplifier housing is crafted of fine Carrara marble of the type once used by Michelangelo to build his sculptures. Due to its mass, purity and solidity, it is an unshakeable foundation.
The Orpheus is hand-crafted for ultimate comfort: The hypoallergenic and breathable genuine leather ear pads are designed and built in Germany ensuring the highest possible comfort.
