Sennheiser has received five nominations for Outstanding Technical Achievement for the 33rd Annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards. The nominations were for their AMEBO VR Mic, Digital 6000 and XS Wireless microphone systems, HD 200 PRO headphones and ‘Pro Talk’ educational video series.
The AMEBO VR Mic, nominated in the Microphones-Recording category, was carefully designed in consultation with virtual-reality content creators as an elegant solution for three-dimensional audio capture. An Ambisonics microphone fitted with four matched KE 14 capsules in a tetrahedral arrangement, it captures the sound that surrounds you from a single point.
The Digital 6000 wireless system, nominated in the Wireless Technology category, adapts the groundbreaking Long Range transmission mode and proprietary audio codec that Sennheiser pioneered on its Digital 9000 wireless system into a two-channel receiver format. With a massive 244 MHz of switching bandwidth, an easy-to-use user interface and frequencies that can simply be placed in an equidistant grid, the Digital 6000 is a powerful, scalable tool for pristine digital wireless transmission.
Sennheiser’s XS Wireless systems were also nominated in the category of Wireless Technology. The XS Wireless systems offer powerful wireless performance across two series, XS Wireless 1 for first-time wireless users and XS Wireless 2 for users who need greater flexibility and control. A total of 11 different microphone and instrument sets ensure excellent live sound, quick setup, a stunning design, and incredible ease of use.
The HD 200 PRO Studio Headphones were nominated in the Headphone/Earpiece Technology category. These headphones offer an ideal entry point into the world of home recording and content creation, and are also the perfect partner for enjoying music with excellent sound quality.
Sennheiser’s Pro Talk Series was nominated in the category of Audio Education Technology. It brings interviews with the industry’s top sound engineers to the Sennheiser YouTube channel. The series is a valuable resource for aspiring engineers and producers of all levels to learn from the experience of luminaries.
