Sennheiser launches “Klein + Hummel Listening Days” roadshow at Bernie Grundman’s Mastering Studio. Shown at the recent event are (l-r): Bennie Faccone, independent recording engineer; Ed Wooley, chief engineer-Firehouse Recording Studio; Candace Stewart, recording engineer-Firehouse Recording Studio; and Casey Stone, independent recording engineer.”With a reputation as remarkable as Klein + Hummel’s, we wanted to make sure that these fantastic speakers were heard by the most discriminating of ears,” stated Dawn Birr, Sennheiser’s team leader of distributed brands. “We’re extremely excited to have another brand in our family with the reputation of K+H. They have been designing and building high-end studio monitors and loudspeakers for as long as Sennheiser has been in business – 60 years.”
On hand was Casey Stone, mixing engineer for film-score composer, Christophe Beck. He currently uses Klein + Hummel monitors to mix all of his work, including recent soundtracks for Fantastic 4, Elektra and The Pink Panther with Steve Martin. “The 0300 Ds and 0800 subwoofer provide me with an exceptionally wide sound stage with fantastic articulation. They hold up well against all genres of music and SPL levels. I never hear frequency smearing, even at high volumes and everything translates as expected.”
Sennheiser will be hosting future “Klein + Hummel Listening Days” at various high-profile studios throughout the U.S. in 2006. Contact your local Klein + Hummel dealer for more details. Sennheiser Electronic Corporation (SEC) assumed distribution responsibility for K+H products in the U.S. and Latin American markets as of August 1, 2005.
