"When it comes to the personal gear people now hold dear - like iPods, cell phones, and microphones - the 'it all looks the same" aesthetic is fast becoming a relic," said Dawn Birr, Sennheiser's product manager for professional products. "From heavy metal growlers to the house of worship choir to hard-rhyming rappers, Sennheiser has them covered!"
