Headphone manufacturer Sennheiser has unveiled a new addition to its range of earbuds with the launch of the new Sennheiser Ambeo Earphones which are capable of recording 3D audio using just your iOS smartphone.
The wired Ambeo Smart Surround earbuds are capable of capturing three-dimensional audio using just a smartphone and the integrated technology and will be available in the second half of 2017.
co-CEOs Daniel Sennheiser and Dr. Andreas Sennheiser explains :
3D audio is the new frontier of excellence, set to transform the listening experience for users across a broad range of applications, from virtual reality gaming to audio recording and broadcasting. We have been active in this area for some time with 9.1 mixing and recording and the audio design for high-profile exhibitions. We are now increasing our efforts considerably to introduce this amazing sound quality into new products and applications, enabling users to experience and shape the future of audio.
Binaural audio delivers an incredibly immersive 3D experience, placing the listener inside the soundscape and replicating the direction of sounds and spatial characteristics of a given environment. Whether it is a concert hall, a rainforest or a buzzling city – binaural sound makes you feel like you are there. With the creation of the AMBEO Smart Surround, Sennheiser will bring this sophisticated recording technology to an intuitive pair of consumer earphones for the first time. This easy-to-use product creates immersive, binaural audio that complements the high-quality video that is available from a wide range of consumer devices such as smartphones.
