There are only 300 units for this model around the globe. This is the successor to their hugely successful Orpheus line.

The HE 1 line features an immersive experience where the audio signals delivered to your ears allows you to abstractly visualise a three dimensional image of what instrument is being played and where it is being played.

It comes with a visually stunning amplifier made of Carrara marble – the same marble used by Michelangelo in his sculptures. It’s used not just for the aesthetics but also for its ability to prevent structure-borne noise.

The advantages of tube amplifiers and transistor amplifiers— with Sennheiser HE 1 you have them all; thanks to a patent pending circuit design. Its vacuum tubes connected to the spring-loaded, damped marble housing to prevent structure-borne noise and surrounded by high quality quartz bulbs that protect against air-borne noise this state-of-the-art amplifier delivers ultra-high impulse fidelity at an ultra-low distortion level. For digital to analogue conversion, the amplifier can receive digital signals via optical and coaxial SPDIF inputs or USB input, it also accepts high-resolution PCM and DSD data. Music data is converted to analogue signals using the 8 internal DACs of the ESS SABRE ES9018. Four channels in parallel are used for each stereo side to enhance accuracy and decrease distortion and noise level.


 Along with the launch of the HE 1 line in the Philippines, they are also launching the Sennheiser Sound Heroes campaign where they got 12 influencers, enthusiasts, and visual artists together to complete monthly challenges. Two of these sound heroes will get the chance to win a trip to Germany to visit the headquarters and flagship store. They are also opening it up to their patrons in the Philippines the same dream vacation for one lucky winner.
