New arrival: Senheiser AMBEO Smart Headset for 3D audio

Friday, April 21st, 2017

The AMBEO Smart Headset brings binaural sound recording to the consumer market. Price & availability TBA.

The Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset features an integrated premium Apogee A/D Converter built into the remote control.

Sennheiser has designed the AMBEO Smart Headset to be an intuitive, compact and mobile binaural recording headset.

First showcased at the CES 2017, the AMBEO Smart Headset captures immersive 3D audio with the simplicity of a mobile device.

“With this new headset you can use your iOS device’s camera to record, experience and relive the same balance of three dimensional sound and 180° visual perspective that we as human beings are accustomed to in our perception of the world,” explains Dr. Andreas Sennheiser, co-CEO Sennheiser.

The binaural audio recordings created with the AMBEO Smart Headset offer a stunning 3D experience – placing the listener inside the soundscape and playing back the direction of sounds and natural spatial characteristics of a location.

To create this headset, Sennheiser partnered with Apogee, the manufacturer of professional audio device, and an industry leader of digital audio recording.

The AMBEO Smart Headset produces detailed and realistic recording via two omni-directional microphones integrated in the ear pieces that work alongside a premium A/D converter, mic preamp and SoftLimit from Apogee.

The two microphones capture the subtle differences in timing, volume and timbre that occur as sounds from different directions reach each ear.
