Sennheiser, Skype Team Up For 21st Century TelCom

Old Lyme, Connecticut, January 6, 2006 — One of the most-respected names in audio is now linked with one of the newest and hottest from the Internet world, in a dynamic new form of communications. Sennheiser Electronic Corporation (SEC), the U.S. wholly-owned subsidiary of the German company famous worldwide for its benchmark headphone and microphone technologies and products for home and pro users, has announced a cooperative relationship with Skype Technologies, the burgeoning innovator of software solutions for internet telephony. Under the agreement, Skype has certified Sennheiser’s full range of communications headsets as exceeding its high standards for audio quality, and being fully capable of delivering the clarity and naturalness of Skype’s internet-based voice communications. A selection of Sennheiser communication headsets will be available for purchase from Skype’s website (www.skype.com).

“Skype is helping to form the future of web communications, and as such is an ideal partner for Sennheiser,” says Andreas Bach, General Manager Sales and Marketing at Sennheiser Communications (Denmark), where the headset range is engineered. “We already know that our designs set the world standard,” continues Bach, “and it’s gratifying to be similarly recognized by such an important innovator in our field.”

Skype is a leading supplier of software for web communication. The free downloadable “Skype” program allows people around the world to talk to each other at no cost, via their existing broadband-internet connections, via virtually any personal computer platform including Mac OSX, Windows, Linux, and Pocket PC; Skype also offers bridging to conventional telephone systems at very low cost.

Skype already enjoys high brand awareness worldwide, with a community of current Skype users that is growing exponentially, adding more than 100 potential users every minute of every day.

Sennheiser Communications offers a broad range of headphone/microphone headsets optimized for desktop use, from full stereo headsets to sub-mini “earsets” and wireless Bluetooth models. All, including the affordable and popular new PC 20 and PC 30, feature noise-canceling microphones for improved real-world intelligibility plus Sennheiser’s unique ActiveGard limiting technology, which protects wearers from uncomfortable (and potentially harmful) noise bursts. Of course, all also enjoy Sennheiser’s famous sound quality, for enhanced communications and unequalled versatility making them valuable for music, media, and gaming use alike.
