The 3-Million Peso Headphone
Another highlight of the showcase is the HE 1 Headphones which we were given the opportunity to experience and boy was the audio heaven in our ears. Since I personally am not familiar with the kind of headphones I’ll just put in the description found in it’s official site.
In 1991 we created the best headphones in the world. We called them Orpheus. Now, we have done it again. The uncompromising philosophy remaining, this is Sennheiser HE 1. In otherworldly sound and timeless beauty. Perfectly engineered. Equipped with unique features and state-of-the-art technology these headphones transform music from something you listen to, into something you live in.
The experience was surreal when I put the music in. I Felt like I was being serenaded by the performance in real time during the brief 3-minute experience.
