What motivates Sennheiser
A series of groundbreaking innovations has given our company and our products its well-deserved global reputation: these include the invention of the shotgun microphone in the fifties and the development of open headphones in the sixties. This was followed in the seventies by infrared transmission technology and in the eighties by innovations in multi-channel RF wireless transmission. Head-related surround sound systems were the highlight of the nineties and intelligent audio information systems were launched in the new millennium. We give our employees plenty of scope where creativity is concerned, ensuring that the future of Sennheiser will continue to be characterised by ideas and innovation.
We are proud of our numerous patents and awards. These include two prizes for innovation from the German industry, the Scientific and Engineering Award and both Emmy and Grammy awards. They all serve to demonstrate our power of innovation. The constant development of new technology in acoustics and electronics is the key to reinforcing the strong market position held by Sennheiser.
