PC 230: New design award winning headset for sound entertainment
Sennheiser Communications’ new PC 230 multime-dia headset delivers outstanding stereo sound quality and premium comfort – for hour after hour of pristine music, telephony, gaming and more. The PC 230 gives entertainment lovers the sound quality, comfort and convenience they crave in the home. Ideal for use with a desktop PC or laptop, this versatile headset has the renowned Sennheiser audio technology, extra-lightweight design and brand new design highlights that make home entertainment a pleasure, be it MP3s, vid-eos or games – or internet telephony via the noise canceling microphone.
With its high-quality speakers and Sennheiser stereo sound, the PC 230 combines first-class performance with compact design. Despite its modest dimensions, the headset reproduces music, soundtracks and dialog with clarity and detail at any volume – while advanced noise canceling microphone technology ensures crisp conversations every time you chat over the net.
Outstanding innovations put the PC 230 right at the top of its class. Whether you are sampling new music or skyping with friends, intuitive controls and clever ergonomic design make using your headset a breeze. The volume control is now integrated in one of the ear cup, so you no longer have to change position to adjust the settings on your computer – or waste time looking for an in-line control.
The ergonomic microphone boom on the PC 230 effectively allows you to cus-tomize your headset. The boom is designed to swivel almost 360° so you can choose which side to wear the microphone and adjust the boom with your right or left hand, as you prefer. What’s more, the boom automatically mutes when you push it up away from your face and a special hinge makes it easy to make even tiny adjustments – so you always have your microphone just where you want it.
When you spend a lot of time on your computer at home, comfort is a top priority – and this is where the PC 230’s lightweight design comes into play. Even after hours of continuous use, the PC 230 won’t start to feel heavy and super-soft pads mean sore ears are a thing of the past. Thanks to its excellent ergonomics and intuitive user-friendly features, you’re likely to forget you’re wearing a headset at all.
The PC 230 enters the market in a really impressive style as it was already awarded with the outstanding international product design award – red dot design award 2010. This year, judges received submissions from close to 60 countries in all and selected award winners across 17 different product categories. Winning the red dot awards once more highlights Sennheiser Communications’ ability to combine superb audio expertise with excellent design capabilities.
The PC 230 is available from March 2010.
