Sennheiser’s new AMBEO HeadsetApr 25, 2018 - 11:25
Now you can capture and share the world just as you experience it. The ear pieces are fitted with high-quality microphones, letting you create videos with stunning 3D sound on your iOS device.
The AMBEO SMART HEADSET is the world’s first intuitive, compact, and mobile 3D sound recording headset. Its earpieces are fitted with omnidirectional microphones that capture the sounds in your environment just like your ears would. This makes the AMBEO SMART HEADSET the ideal new tool for vloggers and other content creators, who want to dazzle their audience with audio just as immersive as their pictures. Especially because the resulting 3D recordings can be enjoyed through any pair of stereo headphones and make you feel like you are actually there listening live. Using Apogee’s proprietary PureDigital technology, the AMBEO SMART HEADSET integrates seamlessly with Apple iOS devices – and, of course, it delivers high-quality Sennheiser sound.
This headset has ears – yours
For the first time ever, owners of iOS devices can produce videos with a high-quality 3D audio track just by wearing a headset. To achieve that, the microphones are positioned to pick up the sound just like your ears would. With the Smart Slider you can adjust the mic sensitivity to normal or loud, i.e. concert, environments. This results in a stunningly three-dimensional and immersive sound experience, which can be enjoyed with any headphones on any stereo-capable device, allowing the listener to experience audio as if they were actually there.
High-tech meets convenient simplicity
Simple and easy to use, the AMBEO SMART HEADSET delivers all of the convenience and simplicity of a mobile device. Featuring Apogee’s proprietary Soft Limit and mic preamp, plus precisely tuned A/D and D/A conversion, and an Apple MFi-certified Lightning connector, the headset integrates seamlessly with all compatible Apple iOS devices. A version for Android will also be available at a later date.
Earpieces that let you hear your environment — with Situational Awareness & Active Noise Cancellation
The earpieces of the AMBEO SMART HEADSET possess a unique feature we call Situational Awareness. Using the rocker switch, you can either make the outside noise fade into your personal program, which lets you stay safe when you are on the street, or you can deploy the active noise cancellation, blocking out your acoustic environment to chill and enjoy your music undisturbed. Situational Awareness also works when you are recording or making a call and can, of course, also be turned off.

Everything you want from a headset
Aside from its unique 3D audio recording capabilities, the AMBEO SMART HEADSET is also a high-quality pair of in-ear headphones. The AMBEO SMART HEADSET delivers on the exceptional sound quality you expect from Sennheiser and provides ultimate comfort thanks to a special ear hook design, while the extremely stable in-ear fit minimizes structure-borne noise. An additional built-in microphone lets you take calls and operate voice control on your iOS device.
There’s an app for that
