Как я слушал Sennheiser Orpheus за невероятные $55 000 (перевод статьи с сайта Gizmodo)

Orpheus headphone system

Я стал одним из первых людей в мире, кому удалось послушать новую систему Sennheiser Orpheus за $55 000. Систему, которую разрабатывали 20 лет. Правда, это очень серьёзно. Я с трудом пытался одновременно сосредоточиться на музыке и уделить должное внимание этой безумной системе. И не мог перестать смеяться. 

Orpheus headphone system

Все началось с того, что я познакомился с Orpheus, детищем главного инженера Sennheiser - Аксела Грэлла (Axel Grell), благодаря которому они и появились на свет. Когда Грэлл присоединился к Sennheiser 24 года назад, компания уже готовилась запустить первую серию Orpheus, так что изначально он не стал проектировщиком. Система выпускалась в течении нескольких лет в начале 90-х, и первые электростатические наушники Orpheus общепризнанно стали лучшей звуковой системой из когда-либо существовавших.

Для тех, кто с ними не знаком, опишу подробней. Электростатические наушники отличаются от обычных динамических наушников, лежащих на вашем столе. Принцип работы динамических наушников заключается в том, что под действием переменного тока магнит создает магнитное поле, которое передается на мембрану. Магнит начинает двигаться, заставляя мембрану вибрировать. Это и создает звук, который вы слышите. Электростатические наушники работают более утонченно. Они создают звук благодаря очень тонкой пленке, расположенной между двумя большими металлическими пластинами в наушниках. В новой системе Orpheus толщина пленки составляет всего 2,4 микрона, что делает её легче воздуха. Под действием высокого тока мембрана приходит в движение и без прямого соприкосновения создает звуковые колебания. К тому же, пленка настолько легка, что практически не имеет собственного резонанса. В результате получается тональная чистота, которую невозможно получить от динамических систем.

Мы обсудили детали дизайна Orpheus еще когда система была только анонсирована, но давайте кратко резюмируем их еще раз. Sennheiser совсем не жалели денег на наушники. По факту, это не просто наушники, это наушники с огромным интегрированным усилителем. Усилитель использует восемь вакуумных трубок, выбранных из-за превосходной (в сравнении с твердотельный системой) обработки импульсов. Проблема в том, что эти трубки чувствительны к воздушному шуму, к которому твердотельные системы устойчивы. Поэтому для того, чтобы это компенсировать, инженеры Sennheiser свободно подвесили трубки в цельном блоке Каррарского мрамора.

Sennheiser не просто выкинули кучу денег на материалы; они стали инноваторами некоторых тонкостей в электростатических системах. Но и столкнулись с проблемами. Например, одна из проблем таких наушников в том, что им необходимо невероятно высокое напряжение для работы. В оригинальных Orpheus напряжение выходило из основного усилителя, и две трети этого напряжения терялось на пути к пленке. Новые Orpheus решают эту проблему тем, что каскад усилителя расположен прямо в наушниках.

Грэлл сказал, что впервые он начал думать о перезапуске классических Orpheus около 10 лет назад. Ему было интересно, что могло бы сделать их лучше. В 2009 году он продемонстрировал переосмысленную концепцию семье  Зенннхайзер (Sennheiser) (компания все еще принадлежит и управляется этой семьей). С этого момента потребовалось еще 6 лет, чтобы довести продукт до рынка. Я использую термин «рынок» условно - производство каждой модели Orpheus занимает около 400 часов. Компания планирует производить в год около 250 штук, а в совокупности с ценой в $55 000 они становятся эквивалентом быстрого и модного суперкара. Так что вы вряд ли увидите их на полках BestBuy или даже у официальных представителей.

С самого начала использование Orpheus вызывает ощущение роскоши. Нажмите на кнопку питания и все оживает, как будто это портативный атомный реактор. Кнопки начинают выдвигаться, то же самое происходит и с вакуумными трубками.

Грэлл говорит, что трубки полностью готовы к использованию через 20 секунд, но выходят на оптимальную производительность примерно минут через 30. Крышка ящика поднимается, открывая ваши наушники. 

Находясь перед такими наушниками, вы начинаете чувствовать историю развития и интенсивность проектирования модели. Orpheus готов, я надеваю наушники. Что я слышу потом, приводит меня к смеху. Я смеюсь не из-за того, что наушники нелепы и абсурдны, а потому, что звучат они нереально круто.

Orpheus headphone system

Годами я слушал разговоры промдизайнеров и аудиофилов, настолько переполненных эмоциями из-за красоты звука, что они начинали плакать. Я всегда думал, что это чушь. Когда я слышу музыку, которая заставляет меня двигаться, я не хочу плакать, я хочу смеяться. Да, музыка должна вызывать смех, чувак!

Orpheus headphone system

Для того чтобы быть более конкретным, я скажу, что воспроизведение музыки в этих наушниках поразительно чистое. Sennheiser попросили меня заранее назвать несколько треков, которые мне нравятся, чтобы они смогли найти хороший файл. Я дал им Space Oddity Дэвида Боуи (David Bowie) и «Age of Consent» New Order. Я знаю эти песни достаточно хорошо, и я слушал их в самых разных наушниках, так что я давно не надеялся услышать в них что-то новое. 

“Space Oddity” хорошо известна за ее бинауральную запись. Основная мелодия Боуи гармонично панорамирована влево и вправо, и разные ее части записаны так, что хорошее воспроизведение сможет создать очень реалистичное пространственное изображение. Orpheus воспроизвели возможно самое эффектное изображение, которое я когда-либо слышал в этой песне. Каждая часть оркестра была на своем месте.

Orpheus headphone system

“Age of Consent” не была записана настолько дотошно, как "Space Oddity", но она является моей самой любимой песней всех времён. Я хотел услышать супер-быстрые хай-хэты ( hi-het - тип тарелок со стойкой, используемый в ударной установке) барабанщика Стефана Морриса. При плохом воспроизведении они начинают смешиваться в стену звенящих кимвал. Но в Orpheus вы можете услышать каждый удар в отдельности, каждый со своим уникальным звуком.

Orpheus headphone system

Я слушал хай-хэты «Age of Consent» и внезапно осознал, что я смотрю в космос, не мигая и тяжело дыша. Я подсознательно пытался не двигаться, боясь потревожить совершенство звука. Примерно в течении пяти минут я был настолько захвачен музыкой, что все остальное просто перестало существовать. И да, я смеялся. Потому что блин, чувак, $55 000 за Sennheiser Orpheus- смехотворная цена.

Smith Alex 17.12.2016 06:14:21 Read through a little bit towards Pete's force meeting yesterday http://www.seahawksplayersgear.com/68-Seahawks_Marcus_Burley_Jersey... Love the sport! Pete Carroll, Intellect Prepare of the Seattle Seahawks  and Winner of 12s in all places, is relegated towards furnishing mainly destruction upgrades.  And as we've listened to more than and more than versus the coaches this 7 days, the preseason video games are very important for  assessing the avid gamers, specifically the youthful gentlemen.  It's attention-grabbing toward believe that that Saturday's exhibition may possibly make clear the upcoming long term Kearse or Rawls ! [How's it likely?]  Yea, every little thing is moving good, we are immediately upon agenda. We consist of a legitimate We contain a true rigid routine that we comply with and this is it. Thus, the men consist of labored very demanding. We consist of a bunch of adult men that returned in direction of coach inside the past few times which is a very good increase moving into the sport, some of which will perform, shocked a minimal little bit. Thus quite a few components toward perspective, therefore countless components towards check for the coaches hence countless interesting males towards check out challenged for the initially season within just a video game scenario and we get started manufacturing experience out of this detail yourself realize.  This is a person enormous probability toward do that. We fairly do acquire the preseason truly, we hesitate until eventually this sort of video games toward shift comprehensive tackling and hitting. That what People are for for us and as a result  concerned in the direction of view how People adult men appear out. I count on them in the direction of be traveling, accomplishing it simply which include we will need towards and performing it simply just together with we consist of within the outside of. As a result we check out how it goes appear Saturday Which gentlemen wo arrive? J'Marcus World wide web wo perform tomorrow; he acquired a minimal twisted knee that bothering him a little bit. C.J. Prosise  is not relocating, geez there a bunch of males, The receivers that are likely:  Kasen Williams , Kevin Smith  wo move and DeShon Foxx  wo move.  Jimmy Graham  is not touring upon this vacation with us he becoming with all the tough rehab. He executing properly even though. He coming alive. Thomas Rawls  will not engage in in just this recreation. Once more we particularly contain toward continue to keep bettering representatives and pace for these adult men as we move during. Upon the other aspect Zac Brooks  wo participate in possibly, in just this sport http://www.seahawksplayersgear.com/48-Seahawks_Jermaine_Kearse_Jersey. Upon the other facet of the ball we are searching attractive durable. Jordan Hill  wo be capable in direction of enjoy, the backers are all relocating, Kam Chancellor  will not perform and there may perhaps be an individual else inside there. Jahari well prepared toward shift for by yourself? He working towards however had been shifting in direction of preserve him out of this a person. There a Wonderful a single. How significantly consists of he bought within his playbook? He executing charming properly. I necessarily mean a exceptional learner and a fantastic soccer participant therefore he preferred this things up. He can enjoy, he can enjoy a ton.  nervous in the direction of watch how he does... he's missing a couple weight with us, he's trimming down and taking in just form.  He doing work tough. With the jogging backs out, appears to be like which include Troymaine Pope  and George Farmer  experienced some instances previously mentioned the final number of times.  Yeah,  apprehensive towards look at Pope. Troy Pope is made up of completed some truly Great components inside train and George is moving in direction of obtain a shot, some aspects we will need in the direction of do with him. A minor little bit of a distinctive purpose we placing him in just. It early for him, he merely gotten inside of 3 or 4 times exertion, nevertheless by yourself shifting in direction of watch him perform, he heading in direction of be inside the sport. On your own look at reasonably a little bit of Alex in just this sport and Cameron Marshall  moreover performed a optimistic a very good aspect. Tackling 1st year, finish tempo, for the beginners primarily how massive is this...? Nicely presently every single move of the route at the moment something counts within a huge route for us and this is exactly where we actively playing true soccer Brandon Cottom Jersey. We been functioning toward it, the coaches incorporate accomplished every thing they can, the avid gamers include extremely concentrated difficult upon perpetration and principles and all that. Presently we consider it in direction of the sport. It is definitely critical.  At this simple fact, the initial effects that these kinds of adult males buy towards produce, we're not relocating in the direction of shift overboard a single route or one more. Yet it commences in direction of incorporate up, they receive a good deal of engage in period, the starters will enjoy early inside of the recreation and oneself perspective our backup men will take a whole lot of get the job done.  Hence it be a fantastic possibility. How was Thomas [and Jimmy] IT was powerful. He arrived out of it with a extremely superior mentality there, result in I experienced toward be back again. The rehab factor merely becomes outdated for them and they ended up prepared toward produce the changeover. Start out functioning with the guys. We consist of not driven them inside prepare nonetheless with the refs and things. We merely turning into them out there and developing guaranteed we are executing this inside the excellent model likely in the direction of maintain this kind of men upon monitor. We do need to have any setbacks. Appears to be [yourself're getting to be some  men back again].  Yeah they are starting off in the direction of display. Upcoming 7 days must be a large 7 days for adult men returning. We experienced some tender tissue elements that obtained us.  Still they beginning towards appear back again. It be reliable. I would consider by way of subsequent 7 days we will comprise a bunch of individuals men again http://www.seahawksplayersgear.com/78-Seahawks_Paul_Richardson_Jersey. How Gary Gilliam performing and form a what facet do by yourself need towards look at him taking part in upon the line? Gary is carrying out fantastic. Yourself understand he, in the direction of leap back again, we had been a minor little bit hence bringing him upon toward produce certainly he was undertaking instantly. He performing very well he performed a comprehensive range upon the still left aspect.  With J'Marcus relocating out, we're moving get started with Sowell at remaining facet and Gary at instantly aspect, look at how they do.  Then up coming 7 days we'll revisit and look at wherever we are. That basic principle of offense dwell continuity, oneself adult men nixed that a minimal little bit. What's the concept procedure, positive aspects? We're merely hoping in direction of do that.  Demonstrate that we can switch it upon it's brain... The behaviors, in opposition to the online games.  Game titles weigh excess? It's 2 substitute information of the examination.  We're on the lookout for the mindset, smarts, the mindset they deliver upon a regular monthly foundation. That tells us what variety of participant that man will be - if he performs nicely within just video games.  Consequently the video games are a complete substitute factor, however its' all a component of the technique. Sooner or later, your self incorporate in direction of participate in soccer hence this is the final look at for us. We develop toward it.  Which includes I explained, preseason online games are extremely major and we're transferring in direction of check out all types of Wonderful aspects Jeremy Lane Jersey. How considerably of the offense can Boykin operate inside of the activity?  He can do almost everything Deshawn Shead Jersey. I incorporate no hesitation.  Some aspects he gained't do as nicely as other folks.  However he's been discovered in the direction of the comprehensive offense and he's treated each individual function of it.  Yet with all avid gamers, we lower what we check with him in the direction of do.  It's the exact with Russ, we use't inquire Russ toward do nearly anything that we've been working towards.  Tre's performed extremely, Quite very well. He's surprised us - Can a refreshing person regulate it?  Can he continue to keep up the integrity within just the huddle?  He's been Terrific at that. Consequently, I'm fairly wanting ahead toward watching him participate in.  He's moving towards perform a ton. Your self've talked concerning how on your own together with Ifedi, and how he doesn't again down.  How a lot include by yourself talked toward him pertaining to acquiring a equilibrium? It includes been a communication for us.  A ton of the more youthful males. And the men who are prepared towards shift for it inside of the trend that he does, that Jarran Reed  does, and some of the adult men who rather occur out particularly traveling towards establish who they are.  It's major.  Rule range just one inside of the software is generally go over the staff members.  Hence we incorporate toward exhibit them how towards gauge their commitment and their hobby and their durability within a direction that will aid us, and consequently, it a finding out treatment for certain, and we additionally studying in excess of the avid gamers. That portion it, there's a good deal likely upon. [preseason game titles] It a substantial component of the unique workers assessment, what on your own can't do inside prepare? Yeah, this is in which males Pretty can bounce out. By yourself understand, can the linebackers demonstrate up, can they crank out a function at manufacturing the roster.  And the DBs can they produce a assertion that they belong?  On your own notice, hence a great number of males about the yrs Shead and Kearse, all those males that created their course through what they did preseason inside of exceptional workers circumstances.  Hence it out there for them. They likely in the direction of receive an likelihood. With any luck , they appear in the course of. Brandon Browner  tailored? He executing properly. He however functioning at it. There continue to nuances and variables he gotta obtain delicate with. He can do nearly anything. He participate in the operate, he can obtain inside the passing activity, he can participate in wonderful insurance each time we lock him up.  There a great deal of things with formations, fundamentals and aspects such as that, that he particularly requirements encounter thus he can deliver the specifically possibilities and selections and all.  Yet he carrying out effectively at developing Good improvements. His mindset been best. He Pretty seriously absent for it, and he been a whole lot of enjoyable in direction of incorporate out below. Oneself realize, I do comprehend that, yet I would believe hence, however we transform over attractive effortless up coming 7 days, as a result we consist of in the direction of look at. It actually be vital how he is upon Tuesday, how he accomplishing. Brandin Bryant  appears to be like which includes he getting to be reasonably a couple associates inside prepare. What contain yourself noticed in opposition to him?  He been an intriguing participant. He gonna purchase a Great appear, and he is made up of seemed amazingly very good within just coach. He incorporates a large amount in the direction of find out. He tends to make a great deal of issues mainly because he continue to mastering, still he manufacturing them coming at on your own and attacking, and that what outlined up. We require in direction of view how disciplined he be inside of the video game, if he do the directly point and all that. He incorporates performed tough while. Video clip Backlink
Smith Alex 17.12.2016 06:10:21 An intriguing dynamic unfolded throughout the thirty day period of December, as the 2015 regular monthly period was winding down Antwaun Woods Jersey. Creating the rounds of other NFL groups' SB Country internet websites, we learned that greatest of them ended up substantially additional positive pertaining to the offseason than Dolphin supporters had been. Even inside of destinations together with Buffalo and Cleveland, who consist of likely experienced it even worse than Miami consists of above the outside of 10 or 15 yrs, supporters have been fired up around the draft, and practically unanimous within their believe in that they would be far better off throwing away their becoming video games than transferring upon a tear in just the last months of the time, including a pair even further wins towards their amount of money, however nevertheless shed the playoffs, and primarily sabotaging their draft stage.  Then, we appear in the direction of Miami. Countless of us incorporate argued vehemently inside of present-day months that draft placement doesn't issue, that oneself comprise approximately as Wonderful a chance of deciding on a Specialist Bowl participant inside the instant or 3rd spherical http://www.titansteamfanshop.com/37-Titans_Bruce_Matthews_Jersey, or later on, as your self do inside spherical just one. In direction of aid that argument, we've trotted out names this kind of as Tom Brady and Dion Jordan. Just after all, if Brady, a lock toward generate the Corridor of Fame at the time he retires, was decided on within just the 6th spherical although Jordan went in close proximity to the unbelievably greatest of spherical a person, perfectly, then that attractive a great deal proves the total science powering the draft is purely natural snake oil http://www.titansteamfanshop.com/96-Titans_Reece_Horn_Jersey, directly?  No. What people 2 avid gamers stand for are exceptions, and a person of the uncomplicated, essential problems of the human head is that we are definitely obsessed with exceptions -- thus considerably as a result that we're further than knowledgeable of arguing that the exception, at some simple fact, results in being excess crucial than the rule versus which it is excepted. Previous Oakland Raiders QB Jamarcus Russell, the rather initially participant preferred inside of 2007, is likely the poster boy or girl for undesirable alternatives produced at the supreme of the draft, nonetheless does that imply the Tennessee Titans, who maintain the final choose within this yr's draft, really should exchange the initial choose for the 15th? Or 20th? Of system not.  A review completed above an 8 yr interval, against 2000 - 2007 discovered that the possibilities of picking a Expert Bowl participant within just the very first spherical, in excess of that season period of time, at minimum,  the possibilities of deciding upon a Professional Bowl participant were being 0.75 out of a 32 participant spherical, significantly less than 1/32nd.  Nevertheless . . . that doesn't conclusively verify that the initially, or moment, or 8th decide on within just the very first spherical is any much better than the 15th, 20th, or 20-5th, does it? Quite possibly not, nevertheless it would seem to be in direction of crank out it charming crystal clear -- no matter if we require in the direction of confess it or not.  There are a great deal of good reasons why the Dolphins haven't developed the playoffs for the reason that 2008 and haven't received a playoff recreation considering the fact that the 2000 period http://www.titansteamfanshop.com/69-Titans_Jalston_Fowler_Jersey, still it would feel that we're simply as selective at evaluating the factors for our workers's reduction as we are concerning the draft.  Classic knowledge suggests the Dolphins contain experienced 7 consecutive wasting seasons due to the fact they haven't experienced optimistic quarterback enjoy, and there can be small question that is made up of performed a position. Nonetheless on your own comprehend what else is made up of performed a position? That except if the Dolphins choose in the direction of spend market place worth for DE Olivier Vernon this offseason, Miami will not comprise drafted an affect participant upon security who intended it in direction of a instant deal with the staff because Reshad Jones was chosen back again within 2010. The Dolphins include picked a defensive participant within just the initial spherical merely a few periods above the beyond 11 seasons, less than any other NFL staff.  Inside of total, we can argue that the draft is an inexact science, that a employees is much better off attempting towards collect as quite a few alternatives as potential consequently that some of the concealed gems will with any luck , offset the inescapable busts. My good friend Sutton astutely pointed this out a handful of times back. All of this is suitable, yet thus far too is the a single level which, no make any difference how vigorously we argue in the direction of the opposite, is totally outside of discussion: that regardless of whether on your own draft a participant with the initial select or exchange down in direction of create extra selections, a large draft select is inherently even further worthwhile than a lessen draft pick out. Toward argue in a different way is tantamount in direction of arguing that the solar rises inside the West and sets within just the East, or that because my aunt Mabel the moment bought a 20 greenback offer of steaks for 5 money, that a 5 greenback monthly bill is extremely accurately as worthwhile as a 20 greenback monthly bill.  The Dolphins' dilemma with the NFL draft isn't with the draft alone, still as a substitute Sam Carlson Jersey, in just how the employees consists of mismanaged it yr once calendar year. If they can track down a route towards draft improved gamers, and in direction of draft avid gamers for the two aspects of the ball really than exactly a person aspect http://www.titansteamfanshop.com/51-Titans_David_Bass_Jersey, there is no explanation why they can't return in direction of the playoffs as before long as future time.    This is a FanPost and does not always replicate the opinions of The Phinsiders writers or editors. It does mirror the thoughts of this specific admirer despite the fact that, which is as vital as the opinions of The Phinsider writers or editors.
Smith Alex 17.12.2016 06:08:56 Ole Gray Beard is returning in direction of Contemporary Orleans.  Even despite the fact that deal info incorporate not been produced, the Saints  are bringing again Protection Roman Harper , who performed his final 2 a long time as a member of the Carolina Panthers . As a member of the Fresh new Orleans Saints towards 2006 towards 2012, Harper seemed inside 2 Skilled Bowls    With Jahri Evans and Marques Colston  unveiled this offseason, Roman Harper already produces 4 (upon ultimate of Drew Brees , Thomas Morstead  [url=http://www.saintsedgeshop.com/82-Saints_Thomas_Morstead_Jersey]http://www.saintsedgeshop.com/82-Saints_Thomas_Morstead_Jersey[/url], and Zach Strief ) latest roster contributors of the 2009 Tremendous Bowl  Winner workers.  Whilst plenty of Saints lovers criticized Harper throughout the stop of his initially tenure within NOLA as a bodily Protection who might simply perform up inside of the box with stone-palms who couldn't capture an Interception if the move was designed for him [url=http://www.saintsedgeshop.com/42-Saints_Garrett_Grayson_Jersey]Garrett Grayson Jersey[/url], he completed his initially 12 months within just Carolina with a vocation-large 4 alternatives. With no alternatives past year, he continue to accomplished the yr with 46 tackles [url=http://www.saintsedgeshop.com/14-Saints_Archie_Manning_Jersey]Archie Manning Jersey[/url].  Hence - what's your viewpoint upon the signing? Do yourself which include it? Do on your own despise it? Indifferent? Vote in just the poll. Demonstrate in just the responses. Mail me offers.     Poll    Are yourself satisfied with the Roman Harper signing?      at minimal his veteran management will guidance lead this younger protection in the direction of a successful character.  he was rubbish anytime he still left, and at this time hes accurately more mature rubbish [url=http://www.saintsedgeshop.com/63-Saints_Mark_Ingram_Jersey]http://www.saintsedgeshop.com/63-Saints_Mark_Ingram_Jersey[/url]. He doesnt crank out this staff any much better, still I question he may perhaps produce the security significantly even worse.
