LAS VEGAS -- Sennheiser, the German maker of headphone and audio products, announced today at CES 2012 a pair of head phone designed to take the style "from the club scene onto the streets," called Amperior.

The audio specialist says the new Amperior is based on the high-end HD 25 DJ headphones and comes with aluminum finish and have been optimized for connection to an iPad, iPhone and iPod. They also comes with a microphone for easy telephoning.

According to Sennheiser, the new rugged rugged headphones can deal with an extremely high sound pressure level and offer professional-level sound. Their neodymium magnets are designed to provide natural, lifelike sound reproduction with a frequency response of 16 to 22,000 Hertz. With the closed design, they are able to keep out background noise, while the adjustable headband and light weight still allow for a comfortable fit. Sennheiser says DJs will love them, too, since the ear cups can be rotated for one-sided listening.

The new DJ-inspired headphones are equipped with a 3.5 millimeter stereo jack plug and a flexible cable design. It comes with a 4 feet detachable cable and for those who want to control Apple mobile products, an additional 3 feet detachable cable with an integrated smart remote is included. This can be used not only to regulate the volume and select tracks but also to take phone calls and activate the voice control feature.

The new Amperior will be available for purchase in March with pricing to be announced then.
