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
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 – May 2014:
In 2014, the 59th Eurovision Song Contest took place in Copenhagen, Denmark, at B&W Hallerne, which originally was a shipyard. The show was broadcast live to 125 million people around the globe. For the world’s biggest live music contest, Sennheiser provided the D9000 system. Ninety six channels of the digital wireless microphone system were deployed. Weeks before the live show, Sennheiser specialists started preparing the sound technology. During the second week of rehearsal, a loud “BANG” could be heard in the system. It turned out that the building was very difficult for wireless microphones and monitoring systems. As the walls and roof of the shipyard were made of metal and the floor was made of concrete, the hall caused reflections with a considerable delay as compared to the direct signal. The Sennheiser team in Copenhagen called the German development engineers for help, who proceeded to Copenhagen for measuring. A software patch was prepared overnight and the local team could use the new firmware the next day. Backed by this technical expertise, all ESC shows went off without a hitch, and in the grand finale, Conchita Wurst, aka Tom Neuwirth, won the contest with her song “Rise like a Phoenix". #Sennheiser75
