For over 30 years, Sennheiser has been crafting audiophile headphones at their factory in Tullamore, Ireland, where they develop innovative headphone ideas.
On September 27th, they will open their factory to visitors for the first time. You can take a tour to witness the creation of the prestigious HE 1 headphones and explore various other headphone and earphone options.
Sennheiser’s Audiophile Experience Center in Tullamore, Ireland
Tullamore has held a special place in Sennheiser’s heart since 1991. They produce essential components for their audiophile products there and have been manufacturing the HD 600 series headphones for over two decades.
In 2022, they consolidated their operations in one location—a rarity in the headphone industry. This not only ensures better component matching, but also elevates the overall quality of Sennheiser headphones. Additionally, the brand is eagerly anticipating showcasing their headphone-making process to visitors.
During the tour, you’ll witness how they assemble headphone parts, and you’ll even have the opportunity to assemble your own headphones with guidance from the Tullamore team. Additionally, you can observe the creation of the renowned HE 1 headphones and enjoy listening sessions in a dedicated hi-fi room.

To offer an intimate and personalized experience in a live, dynamic production environment, tours of the Audiophile Experience Center are currently available by invitation only.
