I’ve been always on the hunt for great speakers and headphones that can maximize the beauty and art of my favorite music. When it comes to sound, I am very picky! I need to hear all the instruments to fully enjoy the song.
Music is my life. As a dancer, I couldn’t get inspired without music. It’s a package deal. That’s why when I see opportunities to explore gadgets catering to this, I’m always up for it! I got invited to Sennheiser’s launch of their latest campaign, “Sennheiser Sound Heroes.” They also introduced new audio solutions including high-end audio headphones, amplifiers, portable music and entertainment wireless headphones, DJ headphones, gaming headsets, as well as mobile recording headphones for smartphones.
One of the highlights of the collection was the 3-Million-peso pair of audiophile headphones they call HE 1 headphones. I haven’t tried it on myself. While I’m not the type of blogger who dives into all the technical details to analyze this, tech bloggers can take care of that, I know for sure that I want to get to the bottom line on why this pair is so expensive! Apparently, this pair has the lowest total harmonic distortion ever measured in an audio reproduction system, bringing the numbers down to 0.01 percent distortion. Simply said, no other sound reproduction system in the world can create this absolutely perfect illusion of being directly immersed in the sound. Let me just put that on my wish list for now.
Sennheiser Sound Heroes
Apart from the new collection they launched, they also introduced the Sennheiser Sound Heroes. It is an initiative spearhadaed by Sennheiser in Asia. The project will follow 12 local creative personalities on a journey to discover new audio experiences with Sennheiser products, culminating with a trip to Sennheiser’s headquarters and flagship stores in Germany. These 12 personalities include singers/actors, Khalil Ramos and Jay Gonzaga; radio DJs, Dannie Farmer and Jazmin Reyes; influencers/bloggers, Cha Ocampo, Rhea Bue, Issa Pressman, Deegee Razon, Ira Denise Oyco; vlogger, Maqui Castelo; party emcee, Marga Bermudez; and concert photographer, Magic Liwanag.
You can go to Germany too!
As part of the campaign, Sennheiser is also raffling off a chance to join the Sennheiser Sound Heroes in Germany—simply purchase Sennheiser products from participating authorised retailers from November 1, 2017 until February 28, 2018 to be eligible. More details can be found on the campaign site here.
