THE Nielson Airport that once operated in Ayala Triangle hasn’t seen a plane take off in more than 70 years. But last week, it was the place where Sennheiser announced a flight of a lifetime for audio enthusiasts in the Philippines.
The leading German audio specialist had just culminated the local leg of its four-month Sennheiser Sound Heroes project, which followed a dozen audio creatives as they discovered new sound experiences through Sennheiser products. Their journeys produced an insightful first look at some interesting tech, covering areas such as 3D binaural recording (AMBEO Smart Headset), mobile journalism (HandMic Digital), specialized audio for video (MKE 440), and many others.
In the end, musician/DJ Dannie Farmer and lifestyle purveyor Deegee Razon bested a pool of talent that included singers/actors Khalil Ramos and Jay Gonzaga; DJ Jazmin Reyes; bloggers Cha Ocampo, Rhea Bue, Issa Pressman, and Ira Denise Oyco; filmmaker Maqui Castelo; MC Marga Bermudez; and concert photographer Magic Liwanag.
Dannie and Deegee’s novel approach to the Sennheiser sound journey earned them a trip to Sennheiser’s German HQ and flagship store, where they will experience never before seen technology in the world of high-fidelity audio. They will be joined by Bryan Barcenas, the lucky winner of a raffle for Sennheiser customers.
Locally, Sennheiser also launched the Sennheiser Sound Forum—a series of sustained educational initiatives in the field of audio technology. The inaugural edition, also held at the Nielson Tower, covered topics such as consumer trends, the gaming industry, and even 3D audio. More sessions are planned later this year, and they all take from Sennheiser’s decades of expertise in audio.
As a gift to the growing community of audio enthusiasts in the Philippines, Sennheiser also launched the Sennheiser Insider newsletter, which brings industry news, promotional discounts, and exclusive deals in the Philippines. All newly registered Sennheiser Insiders in the Philippines stand a chance to win a pair of Sennheiser CX 7.00BT wireless in-ear neckband headphones (worth P9,490).
