Sennheiser Electronic has introduced a rebate program in preparation for an expected ruling by the FCC that will restrict the use of wireless mics operating in the 700MHz band.
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 frequencies between 698MHz and 806MHz. The 12-month program includes tiered rebates of up to $1400 or a simple flat rebate.
The tiered rebate program takes into consideration the product series and when the old system was purchased. This applies to wireless G2 products purchased in 2006 and 2007. 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.
