Press Release

Perfect sound can be heard, felt and seen: the new MOMENTUM from Sennheiser’s Style Selection combines an excellent sound experience with high-quality material and minimalist style. The new headphones are the right choice for anyone unwilling to compromise on sound quality and style.

The MOMENTUM is part of Sennheiser’s Style Selection. Its minimalist design resolutely cuts out superfluities, making the headphones appear understated and timeless, yet at the same time stylishly urban.

The high-quality, predominantly natural materials emphasise the headphones’ pure aesthetics. People love them for how they look and also for how they feel – combining design and luxurious textures to excite the sense of touch with the ultimate in comfort to wear. The headband and earpads are worked from soft and supple leather of the finest quality from traditional English tannery Pittards and is complemented by an unostentatious headband slider of premium stainless steel.

Pure sound experience

The MOMENTUM’s sound is like its design: pure and unadulterated. Sennheiser made use of established technologies from the high-end headphone sector to ensure a clear stereo sound with excellent detail.

A 3.5 mm stereo plug means the MOMENTUM can be connected to all current media players. For Apple products such as the iPad, iPhone and iPod there is an additional cable with integrated smart remote and microphone. Buttons set into the elegant metal casing allow you to adjust the volume, select music titles, take phone calls and activate voice control. And the circumaural ear cups mean you can relax and enjoy your favourite sounds wherever and whenever you like – even in urban environments.

“Our passion for perfection is apparent not only in the outstanding technology used in the MOMENTUM but also in its modern distinctive design and selected premium materials,” says Rajender Mogili, Product Manager at Sennheiser Consumer Electronics. “With striking yet minimalistic design, it makes the MOMENTUM the perfect accessory for those keen to display a passion for quality audio with a discrete and stylist authority.”

The MOMENTUM can first be seen at this year’s IFA. It will be available through selected Sennheiser sales partners from October. The retail price will be confirmed in Australia and New Zealand during October.

  1. Introducing layout themes and styles in FileMaker Pro 13

    FileMaker Pro, help, inspector, macworld australiaIf you are reading this, you are most likely aware of the benefits offered by FileMaker Pro 13, from streamlining your business’ data to organising projects, but how do you make your FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go database solutions look the part?

    This is where layout themes and styles come in.

    Would you like the layout to show your business logo when your employees are entering data into the database? Would you like to create conformity across all pages, maybe with a colour theme that matches your business?

    In order to increase usability for your database, a well-designed layout will make the solution both appealing to look at, but also more efficient – as those entering or viewing data will be able to easily navigate the fields in front of them.

    What is a style?

    In FileMaker Pro, a style is the way a layout object, layout part and the database’s background appear. This encompasses the colour or transparency of objects and backgrounds, the style of line used within the layout, the borders of objects and parts, the shape of objects, the shadows outside or inside an object’s border, and the display state of an object.

    For example, when your draw a square on your layout, the initial appearance of the square will be determined by the theme currently being used by the layout. The colour of the square, the lines that define it and any shadow that appears are all differing styles that add up to make a theme.

    The initial theme is called the default and ensures that all objects added to the layout carry a similar look. So, if you add a second square to the layout, it will have the same colour and borders. Though this does not have to be the case if you would like to differentiate them.

    And a theme?

    A theme is the collection of a number of styles used in a layout. Themes are the full picture of how your layout or report appears, and encompass all of the individual styles applied to objects, parts and the background. The theme does not affect the way a layout functions, but when you apply a theme to a layout it will alter the way it looks and feels.

    Making alterations

    Adjusting a style in a theme is very simple. If you click on the object, layout part or background you would like to alter, open the Inspector and head to the Appearances tab, you will see the Style label field at the top. This indicates the current style.  If no changes have been made, it will likely read as ‘Default’.

    Alter the style of the object, layout part or background by editing the property settings on the Appearance tab of the Inspector. Once you have made your layout look the way you would like, select the red arrow that will have appeared as you were making your changes and click ‘Save As New Style’.

    Type in a new name for your style and press OK. Continue to create as many additional styles as you would like in your layout. If you would like to apply a style to multiple objects or modify a style slightly between two objects, your previous styles will be available in the Styles list on the Style tab of the Inspector.

    Once you have made all of the changes you would like, you have the option of creating a new theme or saving the changes to the current theme.
