Earlier this year, Sennheiser UK were seeking a suitable home for some repurposed audio equipment – and they found Knowle West Media Centre!
The Sennheiser team kindly provided us with 15 pairs of HD 25 headphones, which had been assembled by Sennheiser UK staff as part of a team training session and were in need of a permanent home.
Tim Constable, Channel Sales Manager for Sennheiser UK, explains: “Bristol has a great reputation for creative energy and passion, and KWMC has had a positive and inclusive effect in a part of the city that is often ignored and forgotten about. After seeing the work that KWMC has done over the last 20 years to create equal opportunities in their local community, I wanted to help where I could.
“An opportunity came along at Sennheiser UK to repurpose some HD 25 headphones and the fit was perfect!”
The headphones have already been put to good use as part of our exhibition 100 Years of Knowle West Style. Each section of the exhibition includes an audio station where visitors can listen to two audio tracks: the first is an audio guide that will read the exhibition text to you, while the second is an audio description for visitors with visual impairments.
Founded in 1945, Sennheiser is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of headphones, loudspeakers, microphones and wireless transmission systems, with the aim of ‘shaping the future of audio and creating unique sound experiences for customers.’
