Sennheiser will be releasing a special edition of its Momentum headphones – the HD 1 wireless edition celebrating The Pink Floyd Exhibition: “Their Mortal Remains.“
The headphones will be launched to commemorate the first retrospective of the legendary rock band by London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. As the official audio partner of The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, which opens on 13 May 2017, Sennheiser has created a fully immersive 3D audio experience that brings to life a rich tapestry of sights, sounds and memorabilia from the band’s extraordinary career for the visitors.
The special edition headphones are a must-have collector’s item from a landmark event, which is as much a celebration of the visual style of Pink Floyd as of their music.
Fittingly, Sennheiser’s HD 1 – headphones that embody the meeting of pure minimalistic design with excellent acoustic performance – have been customized with a unique look that is unmistakably Pink Floyd.
In tribute to the groundbreaking 1973 classic LP “The Dark Side of the Moon“, the leather covering the stainless steel headband features rainbow colored stitching that mirrors the visual spectrum on the album’s iconic cover.
The ear cups also have a new pearlescent rainbow sheen and are engraved with the Pink Floyd “prism” symbol, whilst a special “Their Mortal Remains” exhibition name plate finishes off the exclusive design.
“It is a true pleasure to mark this major cultural event with a dedicated new version of the Momentum that celebrates both design and an enduring love of music. This is also a wonderful way to continue our history as a company working with Pink Floyd,” comments Daniel Sennheiser, co-CEO of Sennheiser, making reference to the band’s use of Sennheiser and Neumann audio equipment throughout their career.
“This project epitomizes our commitment to support the artists and engineers that record, stage and perform music,” adds Dr. Andreas Sennheiser, co-CEO of Sennheiser. “And no less importantly, it represents the fans that enjoy the work of artists – whether in the shared experience of a concert hall or in the cherished private worlds we can experience with a set of headphones.”
Sennheiser’s Momentum headphone range is famed for its combination of performance, pure minimalist style, and luxurious materials with its custom design, advanced wireless technology and Active Noise Cancellation.
Powered by the audio specialist’s proprietary transducers, the Momentum wireless delivers the Sennheiser sound signature – detailed, pure and with a slight bass emphasis. NFC enables effortless, “at a touch” pairing with compatible mobile devices to quickly establish a connection for Bluetooth audio transmission.
Sennheiser’s hybrid active NoiseGard attenuates ambient noise, while the aptX codec carves out every aural nuance in detail. Furthermore, the built-in VoiceMax microphone makes it possible to conduct crystal-clear conversations, even when on the move in noisy environments.
Use of stainless steel hinges ensures that none of the essential design purity is sacrificed while the headphones remain robust enough for a lifetime of listening on the move. With a folding headband design they can also be easily stored in the supplied convenient carry case for portability.
The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains opened on 13 May 2017 for 20 weeks. Tickets are on sale now.
