Sennheiser Donates HD 201 Headphones to the Museum of Making Music

The Museum of Making Music recently received a donation of a supply of high-quality headphones from the Sennheiser Electronic Corporation, a leading manufacturer and developer of microphones, headphones, and audio-transmission technology.
The HD 201 headphones have been incorporated into the Museum's popular Interactive Area, a room with more than a dozen hands-on instruments that visitors have the opportunity to play for themselves. Most of the instruments require headphones, which enable visitors to explore their own musicianship privately.
"Headphones are a most important, and sometimes overlooked, component of our visitors' experience. All of our electronic interactive instruments rely on them. Without headphones, our guests wouldn't be able to experiment and make their own music freely," says Executive Director Carolyn Grant. "Unfortunately, headphones tend to receive the lion's share of wear and tear with constant usage. We find ourselves having to replace them quite frequently."
With the perpetual supply of Sennheiser products, the Museum is assured that there will never be a moment where a guest can't experience the joy of making music due to damaged or non-functioning headphones.
"We can't express our gratitude enough," continues Grant. "It gives us great peace of mind to have the support of a company like Sennheiser. Their history of quality products lends to the positive experience that our visitors have at the Museum."
