Wireless and headphone NAMM debuts from Sennheiser and Neumann

Sennheiser and Neumann continue to tease visitors to this year’s NAMM show as to what will be on display. More details have emerged since the companies’ inital announcement, with new wireless microphone and in-ear monitoring (IEM) equipment due from Sennheiser and Neumann’s first foray into studio headphones. There will also be a focus on AMBEO VR mic for immersive music recording and podcasting.

Full details of some of the launches are still being withheld, with Sennheiser due to introduce what are described as "entry level wireless systems for bands and videographers". The US will also get its first trade show opportunity to see the SK 6212 mini-body pack transmitter, which was shown at IBC 2018. This is an addition to the 6000 digital wireless series and is almost half the size of equivalent current models in the range. Sennheiser will additionally expand its IE monitoring line with two new IEMs.

The first studio headphones produced by Neumman Berlin will get a world debut and be shown alongside a subwoofer for the KH range of studio monitors. To support its product launches, Sennheiser is staging a series of performances to demonstrate microphones in action. These will take place on the Sennheiser/Neumann booth and include The Lovable Mutts, Ari and the Alibis and DJ Ill-esha.
