CES 2016 Sennheiser Orpheus Headphones
A $50,000 pair of headphones were on display this year at CES 2016
“The Orpheus is the first electrostatic headphone with a Cool Class A MOS-FET high voltage amplifier integrated into the ear cups.”
“Its amplifier sits on a housing crafted from glass, and a solid block of Carrara marble. This luxurious natural stone—the type made famous by Michelangelo’s Renaissance sculptures—lends beauty but also prevents structure-borne noise.”
“2.4-micrometer platinum-vaporised diaphragms are employed as their size was shown by Sennheiser’s research to deliver optimal sound reproduction.”
“Outstanding electrical and acoustical performance is ensured through gold-vaporised ceramic transducers, while 99.9 % silver-plated OFC cables are used for optimal conductivity.
THE NEW MOMENTUM WIRELESS
The new Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless lets you experience crystal-clear MOMENTUM sound without being attached to a cable. It combines high-resolution sound with a lightweight, puristic design and exclusive materials like stainless steel and real leather.
Our developers have combined the wireless freedom that you crave with our perfect signature MOMENTUM sound that you love.
HIGH-RESOLUTION AND DEEP-REACHING
While the hybrid active NoiseGardTM attenuates ambient noise, the high-definition aptX® codec carves out every aural nuance in even finer detail. Thus, the trademark MOMENTUM sound becomes still more brilliant. Furthermore, the VoiceMax microphone, as an integral part of the headphones, enables you to conduct crystal-clear conversations without the need of an external microphone.
Experience a whole new quality in wireless sound. With the new MOMENTUM Wireless. Its large diaphragms and innovative technology deliver full MOMENTUM sound in new perfection. Clear, richly detailed and with a powerful bass.
ADVANCED AND SMART
With the MOMENTUM Wireless setting up a wireless connection is even easier than to plug in a conventional cable. It is implemented via the integrated NFC™ at the push of a button. In an instant, thanks to Bluetooth® 4.0 standard. Connect and enjoy the sound.

TIMELESS AND IMMACULATE
Love of detail is a main character trait of the Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless: With sliders made of stainless steel, and luxurious leather covering the soft, newly designed ear cushions. Its sound and its finish with accurately placed seams make the MOMENTUM a delight for all senses.
Without a cable the MOMENTUM becomes even more puristic, reduced to the max – maximum listening pleasure.
COMFORTABLE AND VARIABLE
The ear cups of the new MOMENTUM Wireless are attached to high-end ball joints running steplessly in collapsible sliders made of brushed stainless steel. The individual adjustment to the head is important for both comfort and sound. And with its newly designed ear cups the MOMENTUM offers even more wearing comfort.
Thanks to high-quality materials the mechanical components of the Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless are especially durable and elegant.
OPTIONAL AND OPTIMIZED
The new MOMENTUM Wireless can also be operated with a cable, just like any conventional headphones. The design of the jack plug, however, is not conventional at all: Its especially low profile was optimized for the use on mobile devices.
Fitted with jack plugs on both ends, the cable is completely detachable and can be replaced if necessary.
