Taking wireless headset security to the next level

WHITE NOISE technology makes it all possible - Sennheiser and the Kudelski Group have developed the first secure headset with high-end encryption, ensuring uncompromised communication in the office and on the move.

Sheldon Cooper himself, the guiding light for all hardcore nerds, has convincingly argued that everything is better with Bluetooth. And the drive toward wirelessness is continuing at breakneck speed. The upcoming 5G networks are set to banish certain frustrations with broadband, and the most visionary users are already dreaming of charging their electric cars inductively while on the move. But there's quite literally still a long way to go before that’s possible. As well as their undisputed advantages, current wireless solutions also have some weak points. Radio links are generally easier to attack than wire-based communication channels. This hasn't gone unnoticed at Sennheiser, the innovative German audio specialist, which is why it has now launched a Bluetooth headset with WHITE NOISE encryption technology for secure communication.

This headset solution with WHITE NOISE technology has been developed in partnership with the Swiss-based Kudelski Group, a leading manufacturer of digital security systems, and gives data privacy top priority. The innovative hardware-based encryption protects calls from headset to headset, regardless of whether they are made using mobile devices or Voice over IP. The entire communications infrastructure - including the connection between the headset and the cellphone - cannot be intercepted by outsiders. The solution supports the highest security levels for calls and messaging and can be easily used with users’ existing mobile devices. "Working with Kudelski, we're very proud to have developed the most secure Bluetooth headset on the market," says Andreas Bach, President at Sennheiser Communications A/S. "Our aim is for the parties to a conversation to have an uncompromised communication experience. Now, as well as the best possible sound quality and ease of use, our solutions also offer complete privacy without any compromises."
