German headphone and audio specialist, Sennheiser, has officially introduced its HD 660S headphone, which serves as the successor to the highly popular HD 650 model.
This creation is an open-back model aimed at audiophiles, and comes with a new transducer design that offers superior performance compared to its predecessor, thanks to the implementation of lower harmonic distortion.
It also has a lower impedance of 150 ohms versus the model it has just replaced.
The HD 660 S also comes with a detachable cable, along with a choice of connection options, either the 6.35mm stereo plug or a balanced 4.4mm Pentaconn stereo plug, allowing listeners the ability to enjoy the reference class fidelity of these headphones with both stationary and mobile hi-res players.
Axel Grell, Head of Portfolio Management Audiophile at Sennheiser:
“The HD 660 S reflects and enriches today’s increasingly multifaceted audiophile experience. It frees listeners to enjoy music to the fullest–whether digital or analog, on a mobile device or on a home HiFi system. The headphones deliver an exceptionally accurate and transparent sound that also has an expressiveness that immerses you in every emotion and nuance of music.”
Adding to the allure of these expensive, premium and versatile cans is the robust yet lightweight construction that makes the listening experience supremely comfortable.
The Sennheiser HD 660 S will be available this month for $499.
