Do you want to see North America, have the time of your life and get paid to do it?
That’s the proposition Sennheiser is asking young Americans. The headphone and microphone manufacturer is looking for charismatic, fun and energetic adults to tour North America for the summer in its effort to educate people about the benefits of owning a quality set of headphones.
Sennheiser is organizing the promotion into two teams with six boys and six girls who will travel across Canada and the U.S. with stops at key urban locations that include music festivals and events.
Their mission according to Sennheiser is to put headphones on as many people as possible so they can experience the quality level of Sennheiser’s products.
While on the road, the sound team will build “Webisodes” that will air weekly online. Each team will be tasked by viewers to put headphones on interesting people while they are in town while challenging the other team to better their performance.
The Sennheiser Sound Tour start this June and will visit approximately 30 cities in Canada and the U.S. during the 10-week promotion.
Sennheiser says the recipients chosen to take part in the tour must be organized, professional and possess a memorable personality to stand out as an online celebrity.
