At AES 2002 Munich, the Audio Engineering Society awarded their Gold Medal Award to Prof. Dr. Fritz Sennheiser in recognition of his lifetime achievements in audio and microphone technology. Additionally, Sennheiser, the company he founded more than 55 years ago, was honored for 25 years of participation at the AES Conventions.
In his acceptance speech, Dr. Sennheiser said, "When I look back on the many decades as an engineer and entrepreneur, I am very thankful to call one of the most interesting fields of work my own. The field of acoustics is so wide and varied that it has never failed to fascinate me, even today. I am very grateful for the AES Gold Medal Award, knowing that it also recognizes the commitment of the many employees with whom I created my life's work."
