Old Lyme, CT, May 22, 2014 – The Sennheiser headphones HD8 DJ, HD7 DJ and HD6 MIX have received the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for product design. Awarded annually by a jury of experts, the Red Dot is awarded to products whose excellent design sets them apart.

Evaluating a total of 4,815 products submitted by 1,816 international manufacturers, designers and architects, the jury of 40 product design specialists was impressed with the design of the headphones, which supports their impeccable sound quality. Sennheiser has engineered the DJ headphone range from durable, high-quality materials to take even the roughest professional use. “We developed the HD8 DJ, HD7 DJ and HD6 MIX for DJs who expect their headphones to withstand the rigours of daily studio work and a life on the road without wanting to compromise on their aesthetics,” said Ivan Kuan, Head of Product Management, Sennheiser Consumer Electronics. “Therefore, we are delighted our dedication to the headphones’ design is now being recognized by the judges of the Red Dot Design Award”.

Designed to move crowds:

Designed in conjunction with some of the world’s biggest DJs such as Luciano, Bob Sinclar and Davina, the HD8 DJ, HD7 DJ and HD6 MIX are manufactured to meet the needs of professional DJs down to the smallest detail. Characterized by their high build quality, the DJ and mixing headphone range provides complete user comfort for hours at the decks, whether in the studio or when moving crowds at gigs. For hassle-free one-ear monitoring, both DJ models feature swivelling ear cups with up to 210° of movement and three different wearing positions. The elliptical shape of the ear cups avoids pinching the ears and is enhanced by interchangeable ear pads made from soft velour and a leatherette material for comfortable listening during long periods of use. The coiled and straight oxygen-free copper cables can be attached to either ear cup via gold-plated connectors.

The headphone range as well as the other products awarded the Red Dot, will be showcased at the annual Design on stage exhibition at Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, from 8 July to 3 August 2014. With 4,000 square metres, the museum hosts the world's largest exhibition of contemporary design. The new line of DJ headphones will also be shown at Movement Festival in Detroit this weekend.


About the red dot design award:

With nearly 5,000 entries from 53 countries, the Red Dot Design Award is one of the world’s biggest design competitions. The Red Dot has also become internationally established as one of the most appreciated seals of quality for outstanding design. The award focuses on three categories: product design, communication design and design concept, which are each judged independently. In the product design category, an international expert jury evaluates the submitted products on the basis of their degree of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics, durability, symbolic and emotional content, product periphery, self-explanatory quality and ecological compatibility in a total of 23 categories.
