Sennheiser and Apogee have launched a new bundle that brings together Sennheiser's HD 650 open, dynamic hi-fi stereo headphones with the Apogee Groove, a high performance USB DAC and headphone amp. This combination lets Mac and PC users enjoy the full dynamic range and ultra-low distortion levels of one of the classics of Sennheiser's audiophile headphone world powered by the legendary sound quality of Apogee.
Crafted with handpicked components for incredibly narrow tolerances, acoustic materials, and unique engineering, they deliver reference-class fidelity and a balanced sound with crisp bass, mid-frequency response and a gentle, pleasant natural treble. The iconic, oval-shaped Sennheiser HD 650 are unique headphones.
With HD 650, Sennheiser created the first dynamic headphones to achieve authentic and natural sound reproduction, both accurate and transparent. With more music stored on PC and Macs, the output of the computer can prove to be a bottleneck that limits the ability to deliver sufficient power to audiophile-grade headphone models. HD 650 are open, dynamic headphones. However, their high 300-ohm impedance means they require more power than can usually be provided by a computer. Drawing on Apogee's 30-year pedigree as an innovator, the Groove amp increases the output signal to do full justice to the capabilities of HD 650.
