While there are things like smartphones which tends to offer great specs under reasonable prices, people still buy premium phones, the same case happens to be in the headphones department today but the catch is that it's over the top premium. Sennheiser, the german audiomaker had made a new headphone dubbed HE 1 last year which continues the legacy of the great Orpheus HE90 headphone that costed a whooping 10 Lakh rupees. Sennheiser HE 1 was launched in Singapore last year and is now landing in India, this new headphones costs 45 Lakh rupees, Crazy isn't it? But carry on reading and you'll know what's so special in this.

These headphones are sure to give you an experience you won't forget, this audio hardware consists of an amplifier and DAC which isn't just any DAC but the one which is crafted with Carra Marble, this produces the frequency range that grows beyond the human hearing range. Now, one must be amazed to read that but what about the quantity? According to the company, sure it's a limited edition and the production goes like 1 piece per day. 

The company also claims that this is 'world's best and finest headphones'. Now talking about what's up inside is the ultimate material, each unit carries 6000 components that consists of gold vaporised ceramic electrodes and platinum vaporised diaphragms.

But, why will anyone buy this unusually expensive headphones? What makes the company think anyone will buy this?

The answer to this comes in as company's view: The target audience - There are two types of people, one who are audiophile who'd rather not have a car but this piece of hardware and others are those young audiophile who have already achieved much and love to surround themselves with the best products.

The crafting and materials used in the headphones are what makes it so expensive. For its sale, the company isn't selling it in any retail store but with the facility that customer will have to call a sales representative who will present the product to the customer and arrange the listening experience before the customer commits any payment.

Not only this, the headphones are available to be customized according to the buyer, engrave something or choose your material, the facility is up.

The tube amplifiers that you see in the first image does the magic here, it is the reason for the surreal experience and the circuit design is patent pending. The structure prevents the air-borne noise.
