The Sennheiser Story
Sennheiser has been producing broadcast technology products since the 1940s, and continues to develop microphone technology and wireless systems. Based in Germany, Sennheiser actually began as "Laboratorium Wennebostel," manufacturing tube voltmeters. Microphone production followed shortly, and Lab W microphones quickly became a trusted name in broadcast, movie and TV production. After adopting the Sennheiser name in 1958, their continued advancements in microphone technology soon made them popular with recording studios. Notable innovations include some of the first RF wireless systems for TV and stage use, the first interference tube mic for movies and TV, and the world's first open-back headphones.New Developments in the 1960s
The introduction of the iconic MD 421 dynamic microphone in 1960 firmly cemented Sennheiser's name in the annals of recording history. Their MKE series of electret condenser microphones made it easier for studio engineers to capture high-quality recordings in almost any application. And in professional studios, Sennheiser's HD 280 PRO headphones are often the preferred headphones for tracking and editing.Broadcast Standards
In the world of broadcast, you'll see Sennheiser wireless equipment in use all over the place, from nighttime talk shows to the Super Bowl halftime show. Scope out the stage and you'll often see Sennheiser wireless microphone systems, antenna distribution, and live microphones in use. And thanks to their solid track record in professional applications, Sennheiser quickly became a go-to solution for gigging bands with their evolution wireless series of medium-format wireless systems.A Range of Live and Studio Tools
Today, the Sennheiser name is synonymous with wired and wireless microphones, complete wireless systems, and studio-grade headphones. For example, guitarists worldwide know that the e609 and e906 dynamic microphones sound outstanding with pretty much any guitar amplifier, and their ruggedness makes them perfect for live use. The MD 421 dynamic mic is known by studio engineers to be a flexible solution for vocals, drums, amps and bass cabinets, with high SPL handling and excellent transient response. Onstage, artists know that when they're handed an e865, e935, e945 or other Sennheiser vocal microphone, they can expect studio-quality reproduction and excellent resistance to feedback. And in the world of wireless microphone systems, Sennheiser's evolution wireless systems give you the ability to set up many simultaneous wireless channels without interference.
