Since January, the corona virus has been completely changing our daily lives. But there’s one thing you can rely on: we will bring you music, Sennheiser stories and unique sound experiences wherever you are. This is your Crew.
Dear Sennheiser community,
We are all currently feeling the effects of the rapid spread of the coronavirus – both in our private and professional lives. Unfortunately, in many countries it is not yet clear when we will be able to return to normality.
In this situation, the health and wellbeing of each and everybody is paramount. Therefore, we have taken various preventive measures and implemented them throughout the Sennheiser Group: We work from home as much as possible to protect our Sennheiser team and their families. Special protective measures and working models apply to everyone in our production or development areas. All of this is of course happening according to local regulations and safety protocols. To support global efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, we have also decided to temporarily close all Sennheiser stores worldwide.
Despite all the difficulties, we maintain operations and somehow this situation also binds us together even more closely with our colleagues all around the world. Because no matter where – at home office, in divided groups at the office or in separated shifts in our production – we continue to work on providing premium audio products and creating very special sound experiences. For you – wherever you are. You can still purchase our products through our online store at sennheiser.com. And we are there for you to answer your questions and support you whenever needed.
We are delighted to be working with fantastic artists in our exclusive concert streaming series #DontStopTheMusic. Together, we want to help spreading some positivity during these challenging times. Enjoying the concerts is totally free, but if you would like to contribute, please do consider supporting the WHO in its fight against the coronavirus.
We will keep you updated about new developments as they arise. In the meantime, you can find more detailed information on our current activities here or in our online media room.
The entire Sennheiser team sends their warmest wishes to you, your families and friends. We hope that you all stay safe and healthy during the days and weeks ahead.
Dr. Andreas Sennheiser and Daniel Sennheiser
Maybe that concert you had been looking forward to for months has been cancelled? Even the best tickets don’t get you close to the music, with public life needing to come to a standstill in so many countries. However, Sennheiser will be providing you with special live experiences to keep the music going: from live streaming to immersive recordings from jazz clubs, electro sets in the living room, live recordings from the studio…
Just put your headphones on and enjoy!
We hope you enjoy what you see and hear. If so, do share the experience with your friends and let’s create some positive vibes together in our virtual venue…
This month in Sennheiser history – March, 1987:
"I didn't win the award - the microphone did“ – Prof. Dr. Fritz Sennheiser at the 59th Academy Awards after accepting the Scientific and Engineering Award for the Sennheiser MKH816 shotgun microphone in 1987.
Launched in 1975, the MKH816 started out as a microphone that was used in film and TV production, but was mainly utilized by broadcasters for sport events and for outdoor reportage.
The German made directional microphone became popular for capturing isolated sound and voices on set and it got more and more attention from Hollywood’s sound engineers. Soon, the MKH816 became a staple of film audio recording and was eventually recognized by the industry with Scientific and Engineering Award.
As part of our crew, we’d like for you to share your favorite Sennheiser memory, picture or video with us by using the #Sennheiser75 hashtag on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Who knows, you might be featured on one of our channels!
