Sennheiser’s AMBEO Soundbar will be available from May

Immersive 5.1.4 sound and deep bass that has to  be heard to be believed: Sennheiser’s new AMBEO  Soundbar will be available from May. 

Created by the audio specialist to be one of the world’s best soundbars, the AMBEO   Soundbar places the listener inside the sound experience with incredible realism,  delivering 3D sound that blurs the line between playback and reality from a single all-in one device. Visitors to CES (January 8-11) can experience the AMBEO Soundbar at the Sennheiser booth (South Hall 1, booth no. 20200). 

Sennheiser’s soundbar has been developed under the audio specialist’s AMBEO trademark.  The AMBEO 3D audio technology program is dedicated to creating immersive audio solutions that deliver the ultimate in audio capture and reproduction to transform the way users experience content.

Bringing this transformation to the living room, the AMBEO Soundbar is another milestone in the program. “We are thrilled to be introducing the AMBEO Soundbar as  Sennheiser’s first foray into the home entertainment speaker category. We have developed it  with the ambition to create one of the best soundbars on the market – an elegant all-in-one  solution for all those seeking an immersive 3D, audiophile-grade home entertainment  experience,” said Stephane Hareau, Global Head of Products – Consumer at Sennheiser.

Beneath its lacquered and brushed aluminium surface, the AMBEO Soundbar is powered by 13  drivers and the latest virtualization technology which was jointly developed with Fraunhofer IIS. “We believe that the AMBEO Soundbar will set a new reference in sound quality,” added  Maximilian Voigt, Product Manager at Sennheiser. “It delivers the spatial ‘as if there’  experience of a 5.1.4 sound system and powerful bass, but without the need for additional  speakers or an external subwoofer.”  


Perfectly tailored to each room 
Whether watching a movie, listening to music or enjoying a football match – to truly place the listener in the centre of the entertainment experience, the AMBEO Soundbar optimizes the sound for the individual room and preferred seating position. This room calibration is utterly intuitive for the user as calibration with the included external microphone automatically adapts and optimizes the acoustics to fit the individual environment.  


A thrillingly immersive home entertainment experience 
The AMBEO Soundbar is compatible with Dolby Atmos, MPEG-H and DTS:X. Thanks to its  Upmix Technology, it can also recreate stereo and 5.1 content in stunning 3D. The soundbar  features  five different presets (movie, music, sports, news and neutral) tailored to a range of  scenarios and content types that precisely adjust not only the frequencies but also the 3D  sound characteristics.  
 
Smart and connected 
Sennheiser’s all-in-one Soundbar features advanced connectivity via-built in Google  Chromecast, Bluetooth and HDMI eARC/CEC. Connectivity options also include three further  HDMI  inputs, an optical audio port, and an AUX (RCA) input.  

The audio specialist has designed every interaction with the soundbar to be effortless and intuitive. This principle is epitomized by Sennheiser’s Smart Control App for iOS and Android,  which allows users to adjust acoustic settings via smart devices, including setting presets,  personalizing the sound with the equalizer and selecting from three different AMBEO modes  (light, standard and boost). Upcoming new features will be added to the soundbar via WiFi and app updates.  
 
The AMBEO Soundbar will be available from May 2019 for around £2,499 (RRP).
