Copenhagen, 14/05-2015 – At the HIGH END fair at Munich, Sennheiser just released their new pair of headphones in the HD series – The Sennheiser HD 630VB, closed pair of headphones with variable bass adjustment

Sennheiser has been in this game for many decades, and with this product launch they are stating they are still one of the top manufacturers when talking about audiophile products. The Sennheiser HD 630VB is a closed stereo audiophile pair of headphones, packed with some features we do not see that often on normal audiophile stereo headphones. It seems like Sennheiser trying to capture a wider audience for this product as it got some more features than its competitiors.

Axel Grell, Portfolio Manager Audiophile at Sennheiser: “The HD 630VB is a milestone for Sennheiser: For the first time, we translated our long-standing experience in the field of high-end audio into a closed-back design. Featuring passive noise cancelling, the HD 630VB reliably insulates the user from ambient noise, so he can fully focus on his music”

The design on these headphones is what we can expect from a brand like Sennheiser – it got ear cups, yokes, and sliders made of lightweight aluminium which definitely adds to the premium feel of the product. Obvious it also has exchangeable earpads which makes sure it always is at the best comfort level. One of the design features we do not see that often on these kind of products, is the foldable ear cups which makes the headphones fold flat, to easy carrying it around.

On the right side of the headphones you will find the controls for your smartphone or mobile device. With a  low impedance (23 Ω) and high sensitivity, the headphones is made to be ideal for mobile devices. The non detachable wire also includes an in-line microphone for making calls with your mobile device.
