Sennheiser has announced a new soundbar at the ongoing CES 2019. The latest Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar comes with an immersive 5.1.4 sound and deep bass. The new Ambeo Soundbar will be available from May. The soundbar delivers 3D sound that blurs the line between playback and reality from a single all-in-one device.
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. The Ambeo soundbar is powered by 13 drivers and the latest virtualization technology that was jointly developed with Fraunhofer IIS. With the room calibration, the Ambeo soundbar optimizes the sound for the individual room and preferred seating position. This room calibration is intuitive for the user as calibration with the included external microphone automatically adapts and optimizes the acoustics to fit the individual environment. The Ambeo Soundbar is compatible with Dolby Atmos, MPEG-H and DTS: X. With its Upmix Technology, it can also recreate stereo and 5.1 content in 3D. The soundbar features five different presets – movie, music, sports, news and neutral tailored to a range of scenarios and content types. The Ambeo Soundbar connectivity features include a built-in Google Chromecast, Bluetooth and HDMI eARC/CEC. Other connectivity options also include three HDMI inputs, an optical audio port, and an AUX (RCA) input.
Further, Sennheiser’s Smart Control App for iOS and Android 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). The Ambeo Soundbar will be available from May 2019 at a global price of 2,499 EUR.
