Sennheiser has introduced a rebate program in preparation for the imminent ruling by the Federal Communication Commission that will restrict the use of wireless mics operating in the so-called 700MHz band. To receive a rebate,
users must purchase new Sennheiser systems and components in an alternate range and trade-in an equal number of old wireless systems or components, including non-Sennheiser brands, that currently operate in frequencies between 698 to 806 MHz. The 12-month program includes tiered rebates of up to $1,400 or a simple flat rebate.
The tiered rebate program applies to evolution wireless G2 products purchased in 2006 and 2007. End-users who purchased as recently as December 2007 qualify for the maximum rebate.
Sennheiser is also offering a simple flat rebate for all systems and components that don't qualify for the tiered program. For example, a flat
rebate applies to the trade-in of other manufacturers' systems, Sennheiser
freePORT or older evolution wireless systems.
For Sennheiser 3000 and 5000 series RF systems, Sennheiser continues to offer its cost-effective frequency re-tuning services. Users should call 860/434-9190 for re-tuning service details. Sennheiser is also offering rebates of $500 per channel ($1,000 for dual-channel systems) for upgrades to the latest 3000 and 5000 Series components.
The rebate form and program details can be downloaded from Sennheiser USA's Website. Rebate claims must be postmarked no later than December 15, 2009,
and received by December 31, 2009, at SEC's headquarters in Old Lyme,
