Artists such as actor Pierre Arditi, DJs Bob Sinclar, Pulpalicious, Missill, DJ Abdel, Cut Killer and Birdy Nam Nam all rely on our technology. Megastars such as Florent Pagny, Youssou’n’dour and rappers Akhenaton and Joey Starr all trust our microphones to give the best rendering of their voice. Even top sporting personalities like Christophe Lemaître, Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad and Mehdi Baala get inspiration from Sennheiser when they are training.
Without any doubt, we are the brand used for the majority of broadcasts on French television where musicians or singers are involved. We have more than 2000 products available. Our range embraces twelve brands — Televic, Youcan, Tascam, Fostex, Ortofon, QSC Audio, K-array, Drawmer, Apart, Australian Monitor and König & Meyer — with a product spectrum that includes professional loudspeakers and amplifiers, audio systems and digital storage systems. Our target markets are France and its départements overseas and also in North Africa and in states south of the Sahara.
As market leaders, Sennheiser France is not just known to specialists — we are also a household name. Our headphones have received numerous awards. The magazine Diapason has bestowed several Gold Awards on us over the years. And in 2010, our HD 800 headphones won a coveted prize from the journal Le Point.
Our 90 employees in France work to meet the highest standards of perfect sound, in keeping with the customer’s individual needs. We love engaging with our customers directly: via our excellent application service team on the phone, or on location at concerts, audio productions and consumer events. Only with this direct and frequent contact can we ensure we continue to learn about our customer’s true demands and live up to our vision of offering outstanding sound performance to meet all individual requirements. Innovative strength, quality and excellence will continue to be the pacemakers for our success in the future. Together in partnerships and campaigns with well-known brands like Adidas, we set new standards.
These successes would not be possible without a team that cares passionately about sound. Before joining Sennheiser, many of us had a background in professional audio or were musicians ourselves. Many of us are still pursuing our passion in music as a hobby while playing in a band, recording at home studios or providing audio services for local venues. Our experienced and dynamic members of staff are always ready to give our customers and partners the best possible service. We are proud that our talents, passion for perfect sound and ongoing technical improvements have been rewarded with personal and corporate success.
Today Sennheiser employs more than 2,100 people in over 90 countries. Our global headquarters is located in Wennebostel, Germany, a small village close to the northern German city of Hanover. Our Wennebostel production facilities meet the highest technical standards in the production of microphones, wireless transmission technology, conference and tour guide systems, aviation headsets, high quality headphones and headphone transducers and monitor systems.
Sennheiser France was founded in 1989, as the first of several subsidiaries that demonstrate Sennheiser’s global presence and excellence today. Since then we have brought about a successful diversification of our brands, and succeeded in honouring the promise we make to our customers — that we offer genuinely global audio solutions. We have found a home in Ivry-sur-Seine near Paris. Being located just south of the capital equips our team with the right inspiration to provide the perfect sound for our customers, every day and every minute, all year round.
