German headphone specialist Sennheiser is ready with its latest launch and this time, it's brought to the market three new headphones — the HD 451, the HD 461 and the HD 471. The new line-up adds to Sennheiser's range of closed-back circumaural headphones.

The headphones are reported to be powered by Sennheiser's proprietary Neodymium magnets while catering to different aural experiences. While the HD 471's sound signature is more balanced and neutral, the HD 451 and the HD 461 are reportedly tuned more towards bass.

The HD 461 and 471 also apparently come with detachable cables with inline remotes and microphones and iPhone and Android users can choose between two compatible models with each pair.

In a statement issued by Sennheiser, the company differentiates between the three models. According to Sennheiser, the HD 471 is aimed at audiophiles, with the headphones featuring "highly advanced transducers and innovative, lightweight diaphragms work in conjunction to provide clear, detailed sound reproduction."

The HD 471 headphones also feature an additional 3.0 m cable, gold-plated plugs and a 6.3 mm stereo adaptor.

The HD 451 and the HD 461 on the other hand offer unmatched sound and a bass-heavy response.

The circumaural design common to all three pairs helps to shut out disturbing ambient noise for maximum listening pleasure in a variety of listening environments and the single-side cables result in a tangle-free experience.

The statement added that there will be no difference in price between the Android- or iOS- friendly versions of the HD 471 and the HD 461. The headphones can be ordered online through Sennheiser's e-store.
