Sennheiser details unique rebate on 700MHz wireless systems
Sennheiser has introduced a rebate program in preparation for the coming FCC restriction of wireless mic operation from 698MHz to 806MHz. To receive a rebate, users must purchase new Sennheiser systems and components in an alternate range and trade in an equal number of old wireless systems or components, including non-Sennheiser brands, that currently operate in the soon-to-be prohibited frequency range. The 12-month program includes tiered rebates of up to $1400 or a simple flat rebate.
The tiered rebate program, unique to Sennheiser, applies to evolution wireless G2 products purchased in 2006 and 2007. It takes into consideration both the product series and when the old system was purchased. End-users who purchased as recently as December 2007 qualify for the maximum rebate.
Sennheiser is also offering a simple flat rebate for all systems and components that don’t qualify for the tiered program. The flat rebate applies to the trade-in of other manufacturers’ systems, Sennheiser freePORT or older evolution wireless systems.
For Sennheiser 3000 and 5000 series RF systems, Sennheiser continues to offer its frequency retuning services. Users should call 860-434-9190 for retuning service details. The company is also offering rebates of $500 per channel ($1000 for dual-channel systems) for upgrades to the latest 3000 and 5000 series components.
The rebate form and program details can be downloaded from Sennheiser USA’s Web site. Rebate claims must be postmarked no later than Dec. 15, 2009, and received by Dec. 31, 2009.
Sennheiser has also implemented an RF consulting service for those needing advice regarding spectrum changes. Customers can sign up for a free initial phone consultation.
