Sennheiser has just unveiled its war chest of gear, primed and ready for the showroom floor as the CES opens its doors to the public today. The company will be showing off a bevy of cool headphones this year, including its G4ME ONE and G4ME ZERO gaming headsets, an all new line of DJ headphones, a new Bluetooth headset, a new pair of in-ears, and more. Below is a quick look at what the headphone gurus have in store.

Gaming headphonesSennheiser G4ME headphones cropped

Perhaps the most buzz for Sennheiser this year has been generated by the company’s new PC gaming headsets, the G4ME ONE and G4ME ZERO. Though we gave readers a detailed look at both models at their official U.S. release in late November, we have yet to hear them in action, so we’re excited to find out what they can do when plugged into a virtual sonic  landscape.

DJ Headphones

Just as intriguing (to us anyway) as Sennheiser’s new gaming headsets is its spanking new lineup of DJ headphones, inspired by the company’s lauded HD 25 (pictured above). The new headphones come in three models, including the flagship HD8 DJ, as well as the HD7 DJ, and the HD6 MIX headphones, all of which were reportedly designed “in conjunction” with some of the top names in the DJ field, including Bob Sinclar, Andy Baxter, Davina, and others.

The HD8 and HD7 were designed specifically for use with DJ gear, offering 95 ohms of impedance, and a frequency bump in the lower midrange for a thicker sound signature that also claims to preserve clarity up top. Both models come with 210-degree swiveling ear cups for one ear mixing, and a duo of coiled and straight 3-meter cables.

The HD 6 MIX headphones were built for the studio, and the long nights it demands. The headphones feature 150 ohm impedance dialed specifically for professional studio gear, as well as a more balanced sound curve for pristine clarity in the mixing room.

All of the new headphones were designed to withstand the rough-and-tumble abuse of studios, DJ booths, and live sound applications, and offer noise attenuating ear cups with removable pads in either leatherette or vinyl. And since they’re from Sennheiser, we’re expecting these new ‘phones to deliver serious sound performance.

Sennheiser MM 30GMM 30G in-ears

Fashioned specifically to pair with Samsung Galaxy phones, Sennheiser’s new MM 30G earbuds offer a succinct design, and a rather imposing 3-button inline mic control to bring the convenience of iPhone earbuds to the Android crowd. Features include passive noise attenuating eartips that promise extreme comfort, as well as “high-end” dynamic drivers that are promised to provide solid, balanced audio performance. Sennheiser is making a big push for its little buds, so expect to see them everywhere after their official debut in Vegas.

Presence

Promising premium call quality, a slim design, and the convenience of wireless connection, the Presence is Sennheiser’s answer to those looking for a premium Bluetooth headset. The device is equipped with a trio of digital microphones, as well as a powerful suite of DSP features including Sennheiser HD voice quality, SpeakFocus technology to filter out ambient sound around the user’s voice, ActiveGuard filtration to block out damaging loud noises, and WindSafe technology to cut out, well, the wind and all the noise it tends to make.

Momentum’s new lookSennheiser Momentum CES 2014

Finally, Sennheiser has announced some new color patterns for both the on-ear and over-ear versions of the company’s stylish Momentum headphone series. The on-ear version will now come in high-gloss black, ‘subtle’ brown, and ‘intense’ red. The over-ear model will be offered with a new ivory shade for the earcups. We’ve had a chance to spend some quality time with the Momentum, and while we applaud more color options with which to decorate these retro-modern cans, we’d happily wear them in just about any shade – maybe not pink.

That wraps up the goods for Sennheiser here at the start of CES 2014. Stay tuned for our ears-on look at all the new gear, which we will be posting soon.
