Artists such as Beyoncé, Pink, Katy Perry, Seal and Celine Dion all trust our microphones to present their famous voices in the most natural, lifelike manner as possible. Major Broadway productions – not to mention film, radio and theatre – also often owe their excellent sound to our technology. Even primetime television programs such as American Idol and Dancing with the Stars rely on Sennheiser. We also make a special point to focus not only chart-topping artists, but also to support recently discovered talents from all musical genres. Last but not least, our customers know we offer ideal solutions for virtually any application or environment. In the US, our product offering expands beyond Sennheiser microphones and headphones. We also distribute additional premium audio brands such as Neumann microphones. All of our brands are innovators in their fields and have contributed to Sennheiser’s record revenue growth in the US over the past 20 years.
Our achievements have brought us international awards on repeated occasions, including the Scientific and Engineering Award, a Grammy and an Emmy.
Over 120 employees work in our US offices, striving to achieve the highest standards of perfect sound by tending to our customers’ individual needs. Our excellent application service team provides support via phone, or on location at concerts, audio productions and consumer events. Only with this direct and frequent contact can we ensure that we continue to learn about our customers’ true demands and live up to our vision of offering outstanding sound performance to meet all individual requirements.
These successes would not be possible without a team that cares passionately about sound. Before joining Sennheiser, many of us had a background in professional audio or were musicians ourselves. Many of us are still pursuing our passion in music as a hobby while playing in a band, recording at home studios or providing audio services for local venues. At our US headquarters in Old Lyme, Connecticut, we are proud that our talents, passion for perfect sound and ongoing technical improvements have been rewarded with personal and corporate success.
Today Sennheiser employs more than 2,100 people in over 90 countries. Our global headquarters is located in Wennebostel, Germany, a small village close to the northern German city of Hanover. Our Wennebostel production facilities meet the highest technical standards in the production of microphones, wireless transmission technology, conference and tour guide systems, aviation headsets, high quality headphones and headphone transducers and monitor systems.
Sennheiser products have been available to the US market since the early 1960s. Distribution was handled first via independent distributors. In 1991, Sennheiser established its US headquarters – Sennheiser Electronic Corporation – in the coastal town of Old Lyme, Connecticut. Our strategic position between New York City and Boston equips our team with the right inspiration to provide the perfect sound for our customers, every day and every minute, all year round.
