Audio specialist Sennheiser has announced the availability of symmetrical connecting cables for its new HDVD 800 and HDVA 600 headphone amplifiers. When combined with Sennheiser high-end headphones, the new high-end cables deliver a very special sound experience.
The new CH 650 S, CH 700 S and CH 800 S high-end cables are fitted with a four-pole plug to ensure that they are optimally matched to the fully symmetrical principle of Sennheiser’s headphone amplifiers, providing a symmetrical signal transmission from the source to the headphones. “Distortion and interference are cancelled out. The sound becomes much clearer and total harmonic distortion is reduced to a minimum,” explained Axel Grell, Product Manager High-End at Sennheiser.
Excellent materials, excellent sound
The new high-end cables are made of oxygen-free copper (OFC). The CH 700 S and CH 800 S versions are additionally coated with silver, further minimizing resistance during audio transmission. The new high-end cables also have gold-plated contacts. At the receiver end, a four-pole XLR plug with gold-plated Neutrik inserts ensures optimum sound, while the other end of the cable has headphone-specific plugs. The CH 650 S is specially matched to the Sennheiser HD 600 and HD 650 headphones, whereas the CH 700 S is optimised for the HD 700 and the CH 800 S for the HD 800.
In order to fully utilize the sound potential of the HD 800 reference headphones, the CH 800 S is outfitted with an extra feature. High-quality Odu connectors from medical technology are used to ensure maximum contact reliability in order to round off the outstanding sound experience. “These three cable versions put the finishing touch to Sennheiser’s high-end world,” said Axel Grell. “When combined with Sennheiser high-end headphones and the HDVD 800 and HDVA 600 headphones amplifiers, the cables ensure perfect sound.”
The high-end cables were designed and developed at Sennheiser’s headquarters in Germany. These latest members of the Sennheiser high-end family are also being manufactured there. The Sennheiser CH 650 S, CH 700 S and CH 800 S high-end cables are now available from selected Sennheiser sales partners.
The new cables are available now. Pricing is as follows:
- CH 650 S: $239.95
- CH 700 S: $319.95
- CH 800 S: $379.95
