SENNHEISER MKH MICROPHONES CALLED TO DUTY FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION

obama_inauguration.JPGWASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 20, 2009: In one of the most anticipated speeches in modern American history, President Barack Obama delivered his eighteen-minute inaugural address on the west portico of the U.S. Capitol Building before a global television audience estimated in the billions. On the very stage upon which Franklin Delano Roosevelt proclaimed that “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself” and John F. Kennedy urged a nation to “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” Sennheiser’s MKH microphones stood at the ready as America’s first African-American commander-in-chief placed his hand on Abraham Lincoln’s inaugural Bible and swore to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States” at his swearing-in ceremony Tuesday afternoon. more

SENNHEISER INTRODUCES AUDIOPHILE HD 800 HEADPHONES AT WINTER NAMM

hd_800_new.JPGLAS VEGAS, NEVADA – JANUARY 2009: A completely novel type of transducer and an innovative ear cup design are two of the key design features of Sennheiser’s new top-of-the-range HD 800 headphones being introduced at Winter NAMM 2009. This audiophile model, which is sure to remind high-end enthusiasts of the company’s legendary Orpheus headphones, offers brilliant sound imaging and impressive spatiality through the use of a 56mm sound transducer – currently the largest to be found in any dynamic headphones – and an ear cup design that directs sound waves to the ear at a slight angle.

The vibrating part of the diaphragm is not a circular surface area but a ring, which is able to set the entire air volume over the transducer into motion, generating the full-bodied sound of the HD 800. This annular design, patented by Sennheiser, solves the problems relating to the dynamic transducer principle for the first time. more
