Massdrop's "What Would You Ask Sennheiser’s Axel Grell?"
I've had the great pleasure of numerous conversations with Axel Grell, Sennheiser's chief engineer on the HD 800. He's a brilliant engineer and one way or another has had his hands in just about any Sennheiser project that you or I might be interested in. More importantly, to my mind, he's a delightful and imaginative person, quick with a wry smile and a twinkling eye. Just a treat to interact with.
Well...you may have your chance! Massdrop is holding a Q&A session with Axel and you can ask a question too. I perused the list, here are jusrt a few of may favorites so far:
How has Apple's decision to remove the headphone jack affecting Sennheiser and the headphone industry as a whole? Does it help or hurt?Have a look yourself, some of the questions are pretty funny, and some from names I recognized from forums are quite astute. Obviously only select questions will be addressedthe list is already over 300 longbut here's your opportunity! Questions must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. this Wednesday, November 9th. Axel's answers will be published some time next week. Click the link below to check it out.
What are your favorite digital trend in headphones?
What headphone made by another company do you admire?
I am curious to know your commentary about the difference between the HD600 and HD650. I just purchased my fourth pair of the HD600. Many of my brethren share the opinion that the low end in the 600 sits in better proportion to the rest of the spectrum.
If a complete layman asked you what to pay attention to while buying headphones, what advice would you give?
What is, in your opinion, THE Sennheiser headphone that everybody should have. Like, the one that could make you smile and feel warm if you see it inside every house you go to.
