    Default Doctor Sennheiser Died

    A week ago, Dr. Fritz Sennheiser died. I'm not sure if any of you know anything about his company or his contributions to audio, but from what I know, the company is highly regarded. So many innovators have died lately, it seems.

    I am in my late 40s and more then half that life time most of my headsets, in-ear plugs and microphones used are from his company. You can find some pretty good audio equipment out there that is as old, older or newer ....this company is some of the most consistence all those years.

    My favorite:

    3 pairs and such a light design and smooth sound...

    RIP to the man.

    That yellow sponge is a classic.
    Used to have a pair of HD 480s but no more.
    Now just have a pair of noise cancelling as well as a pair of Wireless RF from Sennheiser.
