This month marks the 75th anniversary of the foundation of Sennheiser in June 1945. Throughout the years, Sennheiser has been telling the stories and creating sound experiences for their customers across the globe. It has been 75 years since prof. Dr. Fritz Sennheiser founded the “start-up” that would become Sennheiser in a farmhouse near Hanover. Today, the company he created is still driven by the same passion for sound and spirit of discovery.
A university lecturer turned entrepreneur by the necessities of post-war reconstruction, Fritz Sennheiser founded a small company known as “Laboratory Wennebostel” to build audio equipment to help reform the destroyed infrastructure and aid communication. After initially making vacuum-tube voltmeter and measuring devices, the company received an order in the summer of 1945 to build microphones. The rest, as they say, is history: Fritz Sennheiser’s company would go on to innovate numerous audio products and eventually become the globally successful brand that bears his name still today.
According to Daniel/Andreas Sennheiser Co-CEOs, Sennheiser, “Sennheiser is the brand which is built on the vision of shaping the future of audio. With 75 years of rich history of innovation and drive for excellence in the pursuit of the perfect sound, we create products that exceed expectations and benchmarks in the audio industry. Our employees across the world have a zeal of creating the perfect sound for our consumers and will continue to innovate with the same passion and thrill we have witnessed over these years.”
Kapil Gulati, Director, Consumer Segment, Sennheiser India, said, “I am quite elated to be a part of a brand with a rich culture and heritage- which has been into existence since the past 75 years. Sennheiser has been built on the culture of innovation and a vision to shape the future of the audio industry. We have always strived to provide what our consumers want- which is an unparalleled audio experience. We are overwhelmed with the love that our consumers have continued to provide us over these years. Together, we will keep shaping the future of audio industry in the coming years.”
