to make this product possible, a team of experts have spent almost a decade continuously working against the limits of what is technically possible. the ‘orpheus’ uses an innovative amplifier concept that combines advantages of a tube amplifier with those of a transistor amplifier.

the selection of all materials consequently supports the acoustic excellence of this milestone product. each of the more than 6,000 components were meticulously chosen to ensure an outstanding acoustic performance. the audio specialists used gold-vaporized ceramic electrons and platinum vaporized diaphragms, as well as marble from carrara italy for the amplifer housing. 

 

‘with the new orpheus, we once again push the boundaries and show that we can repeatedly set new benchmarks in excellence and with that shape the future of the audio world,’ says CEO daniel sennheiser. ‘it is able to deceive our senses in a completely unique way, creating the perfect illusion of being directly immersed in the sound.’
