Sennheiser Audio Solutions Elevate Experience for Skydivers at ‘Dream of Flight’ Show in Dubai

When some of the world’s best skydivers descended on Dubai for the ‘Dream of Flight’ show, held late last year at the Inflight Dubai indoor skydiving facility, Sennheiser’s evolution wireless G4 In-Ear Monitoring systems ensured that despite the overwhelming sound of wind in the tunnel, they were provided with crystal clear audio, enabling them to perfectly synchronize the ‘aerial gymnastics’ of their routines.

Music was central to the hour-long show which comprised of 14 routines and featured a variety of songs from ‘A Million Dreams’ to popular hits by artists including Lenny Kravitz. Sennheiser provided one transmitter and four receivers of its EW IEM G4 system as well as IE 40 in-ear headphones for each of the performers. The skydivers who used these in-ear monitors were most impressed with their performance and appreciated how much they helped coordinate their routines with the music that the audience heard during the show. “It was a new experience and it helped the performers execute their routines as per the flight plan. Also, it was easy for them to put the packs under their jumpsuits and fly,” explained Nadia Adamali who organized and produced the event.


She added, “There were of course some concerns given the wind pressure and noise within the tunnel. But Sennheiser’s system did the job very well enabling the performers to hear the music without the encumbrance of any bulky equipment.”
