Sennheiser Offers Headset Optimized for Macintosh

Mac-Ready Multimedia Design Keys Quality, Ergonomics

Old Lyme, Connecticut — Sennheiser Electronic Corp., U.S. arm of the German company known worldwide for its standards-setting headphones and microphones, has introduced a computer/multimedia headset specifically optimized for users of Apple’s Macintosh family of desktop and portable systems. The Sennheiser M145 is a highly adapted headset combining high-fidelity stereo headphones with a hands-free, noise-canceling “boomlet” microphone in a sleek, compact package that’s plug-and-play ready for use with any Apple system and any Mac operating system up to and including the latest OSX 10.4 “Tiger.”

“Even most Windows users will concede that with its Macintosh family Apple continues to establish benchmarks for design, both with the industrial design of its desktops and laptops, and in user-interface creation with the unmatched power and ease of its OSX operating system,” says Sennheiser Electronics’ vice president of sales, Bill Whearty. “So it’s doubly appropriate for Sennheiser–the clear leader in headphone and microphone design and execution–to debut a headset especially engineered to complement the Mac lines in terms both of performance and ergonomic excellence.”

M145 features include a supplied, dedicated USB adapter, with built-in “soundcard” electronics that ensures full, near-studio-quality audio–both input and output–regardless of the audio sub-system present in the host desktop or laptop computer. The adapter exploits independent input and output connectors on standard “mini” stereo plugs, permitting the M145 to function equally well as simple, high-fidelity headphones when so desired–and with the unexcelled Sennheiser quality that makes this an even more valuable option.

The M145’s fully adjustable, “bendable” mic boomlet carries a high-performance, carefully focused unidirectional Sennheiser element, with integral noise-canceling electronics, a combination that pays important dividends for activities ranging from “VOIP” telephonics to serious music recording.

Just as important, Sennheiser did not fail to include key ergonomic factors in the M145 design. Its well-concealed flexible neckband offers secure, comfortable long-term wear, while its single-sided cable helps keep wiring out of the way. A wind-up cable spool and integrated clothing clip further reduce annoying tangles. There’s even an in-line volume control and mic-mute button for easy loudness and privacy control.

The Sennheiser M145 Mac-compatible headset will be available July, 2005, at Sennheiser’s suggested retail price of $120.00.
