Pinknoise Say...

The new Sennheiser AMBEO VR mic is a fantastic addition to the ambisonics world! The finely crafted quality, beautiful aesthetics and regimented specifications are enough to make it's rivals twitchy! If that wasn't all, the new improved price is very tempting indeed.

Sennheiser AMBEO VR Virtual Reality Microphone

The elegantly designed AMBEO® VR Mic has been developed in cooperation with VR content producers and fine-tuned through an extensive creators’ program with participants from across the audio and VR communities. The mic caters exactly to the needs of VR content creators, letting you capture the experience and spirit of any location enabling the listener to be immersed as if they were there.

The AMBEO VR outputs with a female 12 Pin DIN12M to 4 x 3Pin Male XLR's cable.

Capture The World In A New Spatial Way

The easy-to-use AMBEO® VR Mic is an ambisonic microphone fitted with four matched KE 14 capsules in a tetrahedral arrangement. This special design allows you to capture the sound that surrounds you from a single point. As a result you get fully spherical ambisonics sound to match your VR video/spherical 360 content.

AMBEO A-B Format Converter Plugin

The capsules of the Sennheiser AMBEO VR Mic deliver A-format, a raw 4-channel output that has to be converted into a new set of 4 channels, the Ambisonics B-format. This is done by the specifically designed Sennheiser AMBEO A-B format converter plugin, which is available as free download for VST, AU and AAX format for your preferred Digital Audio Workstation for both PC and Mac. B-format is a W, X, Y, Z representation of the sound field around the microphone. W being the sum of all 4 capsules, whereas X, Y and Z are three virtual bi-directional microphone patterns representing front/back, left/right and up/down. Thus, any direction from the microphone can be auditioned by the listener during playback of Ambisonics B.

Benefit From A Design Developed With You In Mind

By means of the VR Creators Program Sennheiser made sure to involve the professionals of the industry in the realization of the AMBEO® VR Mic right from the beginning. Thus, we developed a comprehensive product package including many well-conceived accessories that allow for a smooth workflow ¬– not least the A-B encoder software that works as a plugin, which can be seamless embedded in your post-production process.

Enjoy Peace Of Mind With Sennheiser Quality

With its history of 70 years as a trusted and innovative company, developing top-notch professional microphones with high-quality capsules, you are entitled to expect a lot from the Sennheiser brand: reliable, robust German-engineered products. Rest assured: We deliver – and also provide excellent customer support as well as a 2-years warranty with every product.

Ambisonics – Technology For You To Shape The Future Of Audio

The AMBEO® VR Mic works with ambisonics, a multi- channel technique that lets you spherically capture the sound arriving from all directions, at a single point in space. For playback this representation is rendered binaurally, allowing you to virtually rotate the orientation of the perspective in all directions, horizontally and vertically. Ambisonics is also supported by all of the major post-production and playback tools on the market today. This makes ambisonics the appropriate tool for Virtual Reality and all other applications involving 3D sound and interactively controlled audio. A tool to create new worlds of sound with.

  • Balanced split cable 4x XLRs 3-pins

We Recommend

We recommend using the AMBEO microphone with the Rycote BBG 25mm. It fits perfectly and will offer up to 35dB wind noise attenuation. For very windy situations you can fit the whole AMBEO Mic into to a Rycote Windshield Kit 295. You will need to use the Duo Lyre system to hold the 25mm diameter.
