This month in Sennheiser history – September 1968:

We revolutionized the audio world with the first-ever open-backed headphones, the HD 414.
For the first time ever, ears could hear in a way that they are accustomed to: open and free in space. The sound can travel to the ear drum more naturally and clearly than in closed models.
Not only was the HD 414 exciting for its advances in sound technology, but was the first headphone to feature bright colored foam ear pads (blue, red, green, orange and yellow).
The first 10 years of production, the headphones had a grey headband with colored ear pads but a few years later, we changed the design for a black headband and the famous yellow ear pads.
It's no surprise the HD 414 triggered an absolute boom in headphones sales. Even today, the HD 414, which has long since gained cult status, is still the bestselling headphones in the world, selling more than 10 million units to date. The open-back principle has also become a staple in the development of high-end headphones.
Fun fact: prior to launch, Prof. Fritz Sennheiser asked our sales team for a forecast. They were not totally convinced of the headphone, so they calculated 500 pieces per year. That didn't dissuade Professor Sennheiser who decided to produce 5,000 pieces as he truly believed in the HD 414.
He was right. In the end we sold 50,000 units in one year.
Today you can get the iconic design with the yellow ear pads on the HD 25 Anniversary Edition. #Sennheiser75
