Other-worldly sound, timeless beauty

Equipped with unique features and state-of-the-art technology, these headphones transform music from something you listen to, into something you live in.

The striking design marries form to function

Its amplifier sits on a housing crafted from glass, and a solid block of Carrara marble.

HE-1 headphones

Travel into pure sound

With an audio range from 8 Hz to more than 100 kHz, and the lowest distortion ever measured in a sound reproduction system: 0.01% at 1 kHz, 100 dB SPL.

The relentless pursuit of perfection

The HE 1 is the first electrostatic headphone with a Cool Class A MOS-FET high voltage amplifier integrated into the ear cups.

Everything but compromises

The advantages of tube amplifiers and transistor amplifiers— with Sennheiser HE 1, you have them all.

ASIO Compatibility Information
