Mig Cardamone, who heads up operations for the brand in the Middle East, spoke at today’s launch saying that this first shop-in-shop concept is the start of a larger plan for growth and expansion in an area of the world where consumers are extremely tech savvy and as passionate about sound technology as the Sennheiser brand is.

The full range of Sennheiser sound technologies will be available through the shop-in-shop concept at Jumbo Electronic. Paul Whiting, President of Strategic Collaborations for Sennheiser, added: “This is the start of a comprehensive move to consolidate the presence of our product range and represents a huge vote of confidence in our partner, Jumbo Electronics, as well as our commitment to the region. “Sennheiser as a family-owned company has a long-term strategic focus, and that is the creation of groundbreaking audio products and exceptional sound experiences for the user. Our vision is to actively shape the future of audio, and this builds on a company history that this year celebrates its seventieth anniversary.
