New Delhi [India], Mar. 16 (ANI): German audio specialist- Sennheiser on Friday announced the launch of the AMBEO smart headset aimed at igniting the nascent Virtual Reality audio space in the country and catering to the millennials, new-age vloggers and other content creators.

"With Sennheiser focusing on providing the best and futuristic audio solutions to its consumer, AMBEO is Sennheiser's program and trademark for 3D audio," said Kapil Gulati- Director Consumer Segment, Sennheiser India.

For iOS devices, the headset can be used to produce videos with a high-quality 3D audio track, as the microphones are positioned to pick up the sound in a natural manner.

Using the Smart Slider, the user can adjust the mic sensitivity to normal or loud, thus resulting in a three-dimensional and immersive sound experience.

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. Sennheiser is also working on a version for Android which will be available at a later date.

The earpieces of the AMBEO smart headset possess a feature called the Situational Awareness. Using the rocker switch, one can either make the outside noise fade into their personal program to ensure safety while walking down the street, or deploy the active noise cancellation, blocking out acoustic environment. Situational Awareness also works when recording or making a call.

Besides its 3D audio recording capabilities, the AMBEO smart headset is also a high-quality pair of in-ear headphones and provides ultimate comfort thanks to a special ear hook design, while the in-ear fit minimises structure-borne noise. An additional built-in microphone lets users take calls and operate voice control on iOS devices.

The Sennheiser AMBEO smart headsets are priced at Rs. 19,990. (ANI)
