SENNHEISER GATHERS MOMENTUM ON THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON
Sennheiser drew the inspiration for a Special Edition of its popular HD1 Momentum Wireless Edition headphone from the iconic Pink Floyd album The Dark Side Of The Moon.
The new revamped HD1’s celebrate the super group’s Pink Floyd Exhibition called enigmatically, Their Mortal Remains.
Sennheiser’s marketing team has pulled off a masterstroke by opting to launch the special edition HD1s to commemorate Floyd’s first retrospective at London’s Victoria and Albert museum that opened on May 13.
As the exhibition’s official audio partner, Sennheiser has gone into overdrive creating a totally immersive 3D audio experience that gives visitors a real life experience of the rich tapestry of sights, sounds and memorabilia culled from the band’s astounding career.
Sennheiser will also be supplying its groundbreaking AMBEO 3D audio technology to give the sounds of the exhibition an extra degree of fidelity.
The brand’s systems and components will be used exclusively throughout the exhibition.
One of the must see, must hear features of the Floyd exhibition is a wholly new immersive 3D mix of songs including Comfortably Numb Live from Live 8 representing the last time David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright performed together on stage with former member, Roger Waters.
AMBEO 3D technology will be employed to put listeners directly into the soundfield providing a unique audio experience, and embodying the pioneering creative spirit of Pink Floyd.
The special edition of the HD1s are bound to be a keenly sought after, must-have collector’s item because of their association with this landmark event.
A customised fresh styling that shouts “Pink Floyd” has augmented the HD1 Momentum’s minimalist design and superb sound!
As a tribute to the band’s classic 1973 album, the Momentums features a stainless steel headband covered in leather with rainbow coloured stitching that mimics the visual spectrum on the album’s immortal cover.
Sennheiser has additionally given the HD1’s earcups new pearlescent rainbow sheen and engravings of Pink Floyd’s prism symbol. To finish it off, the HD1’s come bearing a nameplate that reads “Their Mortal Remains’’.
These ultra-exclusive headphones use stainless seel hinges to maintain design purity. A folding headband makes them ideal to be handily stored in a supplied carry case.
The Sennheiser HD1 Momentum Wireless Edition headphones will be available end June 2017, for $799.95 RRP.
