Sennheiser Partners with Channel IQ to Implement Dealer Verification Badges for its Network of Authorized E-commerce Dealers

Old Lyme, Conn., May 30, 2012: Audio specialist Sennheiser announced that it has partnered with channel management solutions developer Channel IQ to implement an innovative badging program for its network of authorized e-commerce dealers beginning this month. The program provides assurance to consumers that they are purchasing genuine Sennheiser products from an authorized dealer.

The authentication system, developed by Channel IQ with cooperation from Sennheiser, provides ‘instant dealer verification badges’ on authorized e-commerce sites, thereby adding an extra layer of protection for consumers during the online purchasing process. The badging system also enables Sennheiser to more effectively implement pricing controls, while mitigating the potential for grey market and counterfeit activity.

“By partnering with Channel IQ on this authentication program, we are able to tighten our distribution network while providing assurance to our loyal customers that they are purchasing genuine Sennheiser products,” commented Bill Whearty, vice president of sales and marketing for Sennheiser’s U.S. Retail division. “This is a tool that will help protect our premium brand image, while providing consistency in pricing among our valued dealer network.”

Sennheiser is an early adopter of the new Channel IQ program, which is beneficial to both consumers and dealers. The dealer verification badges — which provide third party indemnification to the consumer at the SKU level — each contain a unique serial number that changes any time a page is refreshed and cannot be copied.

“Channel IQ has a longstanding relationship with Sennheiser on minimum advertised pricing (MAP) violations and monitoring, and they were the first to step forward and implement this progressive program,” commented Jeff Messer, general manager, brand protection services, Channel IQ. “Consumers want to know that they are purchasing products through a secure and trusted partner. This program not only provides that confidence, but also adds legitimacy and authenticity to a dealer’s online shopping cart. It is a win-win for the consumer, the dealer and Sennheiser.”

Sennheiser is a world leading manufacturer of high performance and best-selling headphones and microphones, considered indispensable among music lovers, audiophiles, recording studios, sound professionals, custom installers and home theater enthusiasts. Sennheiser products feature superb sound reproduction quality, making them the first choice for many high-profile recording artists.

THE RECORDING ACADEMY® PRODUCERS & ENGINEERS WING® PRODUCES SPRING EVENTS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES

P&E Wing Continues Its Mission to Highlight Sound Quality and the Art and Craft of Recording

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (May 30, 2012) — As part of its ongoing mission to promote both sound quality and the overall art and craft of recording music, the Producers & Engineers Wing® of The Recording Academy® staged a series of events this spring that brought experts in music production to audiences in key markets including Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. These unique events are part of a longstanding commitment to share the invaluable experience of leading record producers, engineers, mixers and other audio professionals with the P&E Wing’s growing constituency throughout the U.S.

• On April 4, GRAMMY SoundTables® brought legendary engineer Al Schmitt to Chicago for an unforgettable night of education, anecdotes and great music with Behind The Glass With Al Schmitt. Moderated by Shure Inc.’s Mark Brunner, the event saw Schmitt provide the enthusiastic audience with priceless insights from his long and storied career, including tips for helping recording artists achieve their best performance and advice on maintaining longevity in a recording career.

• On April 5, the P&E Wing partnered with Musicians Institute in Los Angeles for A Conversation With Don Was. The multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning producer – including Producer Of The Year in 1995 – whose eclectic discography includes the B-52s, Garth Brooks, Bob Dylan, Al Green, Carly Simon, and the Rolling Stones, spoke to a packed house eager to hear his stories and advice. Was reflected on his early days as a session bassist, his struggles with the club circuit, how he learned to trust his instincts as a producer, how he is adapting to his new role as head of famed jazz label Blue Note Records, and finally further delighted the audience by closing with an impromptu acoustic performance.

• Also on April 5, on the other side of the country, Recording Academy Philadelphia Chapter members and Drexel University students gathered at Drexel’s Bossone Research Center for GRAMMY SoundTables: Behind The Glass With Jimmy Douglass And Justin “Just Blaze” Smith. A full house turned out to enjoy the conversation between two of the industry’s most active engineer/producers, moderated by P&E Wing Sr. Executive Director Maureen Droney. Douglass and Smith shared candid observations on the philosophy, psychology and art of record production, then answered questions and mingled with the audience at a post-event reception.

• On April 10, The Recording Academy Nashville Chapter and the P&E Wing hosted GRAMMY U: In The Studio at the legendary Nashville facility previously known as RCA Studio A/Javelina Studios and currently operated by respected recording artist Ben Folds. GRAMMY U® students from schools throughout Nashville got up close and personal as producer/engineer Jon Randall Stewart and the band 18 South recorded two tracks and explained the process. Attendees were able to sit among the musicians in the studio during tracking as band members discussed how studio roles interact throughout the recording process.

“This is just a small sampling of our events during one week,” said Maureen Droney, Sr. Executive Director of the P&E Wing. “P&E Wing membership overall is characterized by the willingness of so many of our members to share their knowledge and experience with others whose passion for music matches their own. It is truly an incredible community: a nationwide network that all year long, month after month, shares information that helps pass the torch forward, all in the interest of creating great music.”
