COVID-19 impact on the pro-audio market

COVID-19 has disrupted the way the world is functioning today. The entire ecosystem is extremely dynamic in nature. It has naturally impacted Sennheiser’s pro-audio segment as well.

Professionals would want to invest better in technological tools and audio products to enhance communication with customers/audience digitally. The company is also expecting some upgradation in their products soon and also the investment in the AV industry- for which they will share an update.

Local and Global webinars on RF Basics, Antenna System Design, In-Ear Monitoring, Digital Wireless Transmission etc.

The pro market is likely to grow based on factors such as increased technology adoption, transition to Digital Audio, and Smart Solutions like Dante (VOIP).

Initiatives taken by Sennheiser during this lockdown

To support the pro-audio community, and boost their morale, Sennheiser initiated #DontStopTheMusic campaign which was an exclusive streaming concert on Sennheiser’s Instagram channel. They had a line-up of artists such as David Guetta, DJ Madoc, Murthovic, Bob Sinclair, Third Eye Blind amongst others. Through this initiative, Sennheiser encouraged people to support the WHO in its fight against COVID-19.

“We had a few plans in place initially this year which could not see the light of the day due to ongoing pandemic. With respect to that, we had conducted more than 100 webinars (locally & globally put together). Our product managers are doing a brilliant job of training professionals in Hindi as well as regional languages under #DontStopTheEducation campaign. More than 8,000 audio enthusiasts attended it. We have done local webinars in Hindi and conducted local Round Tables involving prominent personalities from India- sharing their journey, career progression, learnings & experiences over the years, challenges faced, their workflow, approach, strategy, tips & tricks. We are planning a few more classes and webinars like these in the coming months,” said Vipin Pungalia, Director, Professional Segment, Sennheiser India.

#DontStopTheEducation Campaign

#DontStopTheEducation is primarily aimed to upskill the company partners, customers and stakeholders to take on industry-relevant technical knowledge that will benefit them in the future. However, the webinar series is free for everyone to register.

Another sound engineer who attended these sessions spoke about it being quite informative and how these sessions have helped him increase his knowledge and enhance his skills as a sound engineer.

Veteran & well-renowned Sound Engineer Ashish Saksena was the Host for Round Tables conducted in India & top audio professionals such as Samir Kriplani, Vijay Dayal, Dave Drego, Anupam Roy, Tosief Shaikh, Kuber Sharma, Ranjeet Singh, Nasan Fernandes, Anish Purao were amongst those who were panelists in the various Round Tables.

According to Vipin, “To support our community and as a way of giving back the love and appreciation we have been receiving, we initiated a campaign #DontStopTheEducation for our customers, partners, and aspiring professionals.”

Celebrating 75 Years

“We had plans to celebrate Sennheiser’s legacy of 75 years which we were not able to go through due to the on-going crisis. We couldn’t celebrate the anniversary as planned; however, we keep initiating get-togethers and fun team activities to further strengthen the bond,” explained Vipin.

“We do have quite a strong network of distributors and channel partners across India who play an extremely crucial role for us in catering to needs of our diverse customers PAN India. As a way to show gratitude to our customers, distributors, channel partners, and thank them for being associated with Sennheiser’s journey in India, we ran a 75th Anniversary Promo offer on selected range of professional headphones and microphones which started in July 2020. Additionally, I’m quite thrilled to announce that we do have some exciting offers lined up for them and will get to know about it soon,” he further added.

Sennheiser has started preparing for a post COVID-19 situation

“Sennheiser is a family owned company and we have always believed and cultivated the spirit of entrepreneurship. Here, employees are aware about their responsibilities- hence there is no culture of micromanagement. Globally we have provided virtual collaboration trainings for our staff to be effective & efficient. As a company we are encouraging & guiding our employees to focus on self-development and learning by taking online courses. Our employees have been active in taking online courses to upskill themselves. Through this, we are adding value in employees’ productivity, and preparing ourselves for the future,” he concluded.
