Fader pushers mourn Fritz Sennheiser

He gave us good headphones. Attention must be paid

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

The founder of Sennheiser Electronics, Dr Fritz Sennheiser, has died aged 98.

Sennheiser studied electronics in Berlin in 1929 first at the Technical University then the Heinrich Hertz Institute. He helped build the amplification for the 1936 Berlin Olympics ceremony. During the war he worked in cryptography, but this was verboten by the Allies after VE Day.

He founded his company in the immediate aftermath of World War II. His first microphone was created for Siemens in 1949, and the company changed its name to Sennheiser Electronic in 1958. The company introduced the first open headphones, which are still in production today.

The name has been ubiquitious for studio engineers for 50 years, particularly for the specialist recording mics the 421 and 441.

Senneheiser handed over duties to his son in 1982.
