“Give yourself the sound you deserve” - Sennheiser Mobile Music headsets at Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona

Barcelona, 14 February 2011 – Visitors should not miss out on visiting Sennheiser at the 2011 Mobile World Congress at stand 7D56 from February 14th to 17th. Here they can grab the chance to test a headset made for their mobile and experience the sound that they and their phone deserves. Feel the quality, experience the comfort and hear the superior sound with the range of Sennheiser innovative headsets specially designed for mobile phones. At the Mobile World Congress, Sennheiser is bringing together the crème de la crème of headsets and headphones for visitors to enjoy: the flagship MM 550 TRAVEL, the highly coveted headsets tailor-made for all the latest Apple devices* as well as the adidas Sennheiser models, the sports headsets that are ideally suited to cope with the extreme demands of sports enthusiasts.

 “Our presence at the Mobile World Congress gives us the chance to truly convince visitors of our headsets’ renowned Sennheiser sound quality, sleek award winning design and amazing comfort. It’s the perfect platform for visitors to try out and test our products in person with their own mobile phones,” explains Guido Karbautzki, Head of Sales and Marketing at Sennheiser Communications. “When visitors can experience their own music through a Sennheiser headset, they begin to understand what the artists using our professional equipment have known for years. When for instance Rihanna, Beyonce or Pink record their music or perform live, they know that their sound is in good hands with Sennheiser. Why should the sound of a mobile phone be anything less than just that – the perfect sound experience”. For over 60 years Sennheiser products have come with a built-in mission: to stay true to the sound and soul the music was given by its creators and performers. This musical approach combined with state-of-the-art technology has convinced a broad spectrum of professional artists from star of the opera to pop idol.
Sennheiser's expertise in reproducing live sound can be experienced by music lovers all over the world with any of its products. At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona visitors can view videos of artists performing with Sennheiser equipment and hear the performance through one of the audio specialists’ latest premium headsets.

Made for Apple

iPhone* users are at the forefront of today’s digital lifestyle. Their high demands on design and quality also apply to headsets. As Christian Ern, Product Manager at Sennheiser Communications, states: “Sennheiser sound has been made available for Apple iPhones so customers can benefit from the supreme quality standards and excellent audio quality that is inherent in our headsets. Sennheiser stands for top quality, distinctive design and intuitive communication features.” The Sennheiser headsets are also compatible with other Apple devices, such as the iPad, iPods and Mac computers**

Perfect sound for sports with adidas

The new Sports headsets presented by Sennheiser and adidas combine top-quality sound and maximum functionality with their convenient hands-free system. “The remote and microphone unit integrated into the cable allows you to seamlessly switch between listening to music and telephoning at the push of a button,” explains Daniel Chee, Product Manager Consumer Electronics at Sennheiser. “If the phone rings, the music is automatically paused and restarts as soon as the phone call is finished. This ensures that you never miss an incoming call or your favorite song." And no matter whether you are listening to music or telephoning, the new Sports headsets guarantee the best sound quality for the iPhone.
Visit Sennheiser at stand 7D56 at the 2011 Mobile World Congress, taking place from February 14th to 17th in Barcelona.
