Sennheiser Meets Chromey Meets Orpheus At IFA Berlin.

As we were in the land of Sennheiser, we thought we would pop in for a brew and a bratwurst.

The Sennheiser Momentum-On in Pink. Now matching the new iPhone 5C.

The Sennheiser Momentum-On in Green, also matching the new iPhone 5C.

The Momentums were causing quite a stir amongst the public. With colour being the theme of the day at Sennheiser, the public had a chance to listen to a pair of Momentum-Ons and have their portrait done (in colour) all courtesy of Sennheiser.

Check out the full range of colours here.

Just when we thought we'd seen it all...we spotted this. Yep!! thats a Sennheiser Orpheus HEV90 headphone amp you are looking at below.

This legendary beast is the stuff of folklore as far as headphones amps are concerned. This beauty isn't available anymore but it can still wow the headphone enthusiasts in a crowd.

Cue a series of photos with Chromey and the mighty Orpheus.

A quote from Stereophile magazine "If looks could kill the Orpheus would be deadly" how true. 

Careful Chromey, you know there were only ever 300 Orpheus amps produced back in 1991 and they now change hands for almost twice the original price. 


The six visible vacuum tubes covered with shiny tube shields make it look like something out of a Star Wars movie. Well thats what Chromey tells me.

 You can call me Hal.

The red LED pulses gently until the amp reaches optimum running temperature...and then...musical heaven!!

Now just in case you are wondering why there are no headphones visible in these shots, specifically the HE90s,  well thats because they were being used by a gentleman just out of shot and I didn't want to disturb him or use him in the blog without his permission. So maybe the next time we get close to the Orpheus I'll snap some shots for you.

Cue more shots with Chromey and the king of headphone amps.
