Sennheiser is to release a special ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ edition of its Momentum HD1 wireless headphones to coincide with The Pink Floyd Exhibition ‘Their Mortal Remains’ currently running at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
In addition to creating the commemorative DSotM HD1s, Sennheiser, which is a partner in the exhibition, has also created for the exhibition a fully immersive 3D audio experience that delivers sights and sounds from the band’s extraordinary career. ‘The special edition headphones are a must-have collector’s item from this landmark event, which is as much a celebration of the visual style of Pink Floyd as of their music,’ Daniel Sennheiser told Australian Hi-Fi Magazine. ‘One of the elements of the exhibition is a new immersive 3D mix of songs including Comfortably Numb Live from Live 8—the last time David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright played onstage with former member Roger Waters—that was created using Sennheiser’s AMBEO 3D technology, which places the listener directly into the sound.’
The DSotM version of the Sennheiser HD 1s features the familiar prism and pearlescent rainbow sheen on the ear cups and the leather covering the stainless steel headband features rainbow-coloured stitching that mirrors the visual spectrum on cover of the iconic album. A special ‘Their Mortal Remains’ exhibition name is also affixed.
Tickets for The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains are on sale HERE and the exhibition runs until October 1, 2017. The Sennheiser Momentum HD1 wireless edition celebrating the exhibition can be pre-ordered from www.sennheiser.com now for scheduled delivery later this year except for Australian residents, for whom the pre-order facility on the local Sennheiser Australia site will not become available until June.
