Think about the music you’ve loved for years. You’ve never really heard it, because much of what was recorded is lost. The music is there on the master tapes, but the conventional formats used to bring it to your sound system are limited. Now, however, that’s all changing. High Resolution Audio is here, and it’s time to regain the music. To hear it as it was intended to be heard.
What is bit rate?
The number of bits or the amount of data per second that can be transmitted along a digital network. Therefore, the higher the bitrate, the more original information transmitted from source to your ear.
High Resolution Audio derives from technology that delivers audio signals with a dynamic range and bandwidth far greater than that of a standard CD, therefore making it possible to bring all of the thrill and excitement of pure, living sound directly to your ears. Sound so breathtaking and vivid that it will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up – and you just might get goose bumps.
After all, you’ll be hearing your favorite music for the very first time. You’ll be hearing the music in the same outstanding sound quality as the musicians and sound technicians heard it in the recording studio.
There’s only one catch: To really appreciate High Resolution Audio, your equipment has to be advanced enough to handle the information contained in a high-resolution sound file, and that’s where Sennheiser comes into the picture.
We’ve been at the forefront of high-performance audio since we were founded in 1945, so no one else is in a better position to enable you to take advantage of this new technology. Listen to a high-definition sound file of one of your old favorites through a pair of Sennheiser headphones today and regain what has been lost: the music.
So how do you listen to your music?
To enjoy high resolution audio, it’s important to ensure an end-to-end solution that doesn’t lose audio quality from software through to hardware.
Sennheiser was the first to develop the shotgun microphone, a wireless infrared transmission system, open headphones and a host of other groundbreaking inventions that went on to revolutionize the audio industry. Today our legendary HD 800 is without a doubt the standard by which all other audiophile headphones are judged.
Sennheiser headphones have been meeting and exceeding the Hi-Res Audio criteria since 1991, so make sure you explore our current range of High Resolution Headphones.
