Sennheiser Sponsors the DMC World DJ Championships 2012 - Top DJs to receive exclusive Sennheiser gift box

Audio specialist Sennheiser is proud to announce its sponsorship of the DMC World DJ Championship 2012, the world’s biggest and most renowned DJ competition. On 27 and 28 September London’s famous event venue, HMV Forum, will play host to the world’s greatest DJs, all competing to win a coveted DJ title in one of three competitions: Battle for World Supremacy, World Team Battle, and DJ Championship World Final.

Superior sound – night and day
As a supporting sponsor of the event, Sennheiser will provide the 50 finalists of the Battle for World Supremacy with an exclusive “Night & Day” gift box for round-the-clock superior sound quality, whether they’re in the studio, in a club or on the street. The box will contain two of the Sennheiser’s flagship headphones: the professional HD 25, favoured by DJs working and mixing in clubs at night, and the newly released DJ-inspired, urban Amperior, which brings DJ-club sound quality to the streets.

“The DMC World DJ Championship is the ultimate showcase in turntable wizardry and musical excellence. Our headphones have long been renowned for helping the professional DJ community to fully exploit their talents, so offering our full support for this event made perfect sense. We’re looking forward to watching the old masters at work, but more importantly it gives us an opportunity to see what exciting new talent is out there”, says Katrin Huss, Director Customer Relationship Management at Sennheiser.

Sennheiser will also be hosting the Sennheiser Showcase during the DJ Championship World Final on Friday, 28 September. The showcase will feature a must-see live set from 2008’s DMC World Champion, DJ FLY, who will be accompanied by the phenomenally talented electro drummer, 2M2X. DJ FLY, whose 2008 set was recently voted in a public poll as the Greatest DJ Performance ever at the DMC Championships, is one of two new Sennheiser DJ endorsers performing at the event; the other is DJ QBert, another legendary DMC World Champion, who is credited with inventing more scratching techniques and musical innovations than any other DJ in history. DJ QBert can be seen performing solo at the event on Thursday 27 September.

“For DJs the DMC World DJ Championship is our World Cup – the holy grail of the DJ music scene. This year promises to be one of the most entertaining and fiercely competitive championships ever. The Sennheiser Showcase should be one of the highlights and I promise that along with 2M2X we’re going to put on something really special”, says DJ FLY.
