The Sennheiser Sound Tour: A Groundbreaking Marketing Campaign

The "Girls Team" and the "Guys Team" are integral campaign components of the Sennheiser Sound Tour. Each week, the teams are assigned competitive tasks ranging from over-the-top outrageous to spectacularly goofy, with the ultimate goal of placing as many Sennheiser headphones on consumers' ears as possible.

SennheiserSoundTour.com -- complete with its regular Webisodes of team antics -- brings an "online reality show" dimension to the campaign and enables both fans and consumers to stay connected as the tour progresses. The teams are comprised of unique individuals with a startlingly broad range of backgrounds: there is a professional surfer, a championship gamer, a model and a professional photographer among many others.
