Cologne/Hanover, 17 August 2011 – Sennheiser is setting gamers’ hearts racing: at this year’s gamescom trade fair in Cologne, the audio specialist is unveiling two headsets in its HEAR TO WIN product range for the Xbox 360®, and one for PCs. Visitors can try out the equipment for themselves at the stands run by Sennheiser’s co-operation partners. They will also have the chance to pitch their skills against the stars of the gaming scene in show matches.
“We are delighted to be able to offer gamers such a diverse and entertaining programme once again this year,” says Gerhard Tammen, President of Sennheiser Vertrieb und Service. “As well as presenting the new gaming headsets for PCs and the Xbox 360®, it’s particularly important to us that visitors can try out our headsets live on games consoles. For that reason, we have arranged a number of co-operations for the fair period.” Visitors will be able to experience the quality of the Sennheiser headsets for themselves at the stands of the following manufacturers: Electronic Arts (Halls 5 and 6), Deep Silver (Koch Media, Hall 7), Namco Bandai (Hall 4) and Electronic Sports League (ESL-Arena, Hall 9).
