2020 is an exciting year for us: Sennheiser turns 75!
We would like to celebrate this very special anniversary with you - our employees, customers, friends and followers. Because you are the people behind our achievements and fantastic projects.
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
Sometimes, life takes an unexpected turn. This is also true for our anniversary year: Since the beginning of the year the corona virus has affected everyday life in more and more countries. For us this means: Instead of many happy meetings with you, our customers and the Sennheiser fans, trade shows and events were canceled, and we had to temporarily close our offices in China. Now, we are taking precautionary measures at our headquarters in Germany and further locations. But somehow this situation also binds us together 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 still work on creating very special sound experiences and unique moments. For you – wherever you are. #ThisIsYourSennheiserCrew
This month in Sennheiser history – February, 2020 Brit Awards
Back in 2018, Stormzy amazed the crowds by giving an epic performance beneath an indoor waterfall effect which soaked both him and his SKM 6000. This year, as if that wasn’t enough, Stormzy was joined by Tiana Major9 and Teni Tinks as well as choir members and dancers all using SKM 6000 with MD 9235 capsules and 2000 series IEMs, stood on the stage under a solid wall of rain.
The decision to use the water element on a much bigger scale at this year’s BRIT Awards, Raphael A. Williams, Stormzy’s sound engineer, says that there was never a question about the reliability of such a set up.
“The first time that we did the waterfall effect in 2018 it was just Stormzy in the rain and then the rest of the production cast and BVs were outside of it. And now this time, the TAWBOX creative team just thought ‘let’s put more people there!”
Williams jokes: “When we looked at the microphone, the mic said ‘Yeah, I am a bit wet, but I am ok. I survived Heavy Is The Head.”
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!
