Sennheiser : About

For 60 years the Sennheiser name has been synonymous with a passion for perfect sound.

Since its beginning, Sennheiser – which remains a family-owned business – has been making a name for itself with high-quality microphones, RF wireless technology and headphones. It began in early June of 1945 when a team of seven engineers, under the leadership of Professor Dr. Fritz Sennheiser, took a chance and started a small company in the field of electroacoustics. Today there are over 1,600 Sennheiser employees worldwide who proudly look back at Sennheiser’s evolution from a tiny village workshop in Wennebostel, Germany to a respected global corporation.

Thanks to its many award-winning innovations, such as the invention of open headphones in the 1960s, infrared transmission technology in the 1970s, pioneering breakthroughs in multi-channel wireless transmission in the 1980s, head-related surround systems in the 1990s and intelligent audio information systems in the new millennium, Sennheiser has earned an outstanding reputation as a worldwide leader in audio reproduction technology.

Sennheiser Electronic Corporation (SEC) is today's U.S. wholly-owned subsidiary, with headquarters in Old Lyme, Connecticut. We are proud to share with you 60 years of Sennheiser achievements and success as we celebrate our past, and look confidently to the future.
