You’ll have seen Sennheiser-branded microphones and headphones across the world, and with good reason – the company has a rich audio history that’s become particularly legendary within the studio production and live-sound worlds.
The HD series of headphones have certainly been a hit with audiophiles and engineers alike, providing hugely impressive reproduction. The pro models feature a closed-back, circumaural design and an astonishing 32 dB attenuation of external noise. The IE series of inner-ear headphones will also please the casual listener still keen to make sure that their sound is at the highest possible quality levels.
Sennheiser don’t slouch in the live sound department either, with the likes of the EW and Evolution wireless kits for instruments and vocals, using the highest component parts with dynamic capacitors and diversity receivers to deliver crisp clear audio which engineers will find particularly easy to work with. The Freeport range has also proved hugely popular as the particularly affordable option for those who need to be free of cables. When it comes to the real deal, though, Sennheiser’s XSW wireless systems assure immunity to interference via an-easily controlled interface and absolutely crystal clear sound.
Meanwhile the short gun microphone series – MKH – make for the perfect outdoor recording solution; Sennheiser’s broadcast audio connection holds an equally rich history.
