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.

Ambeo® – All Aboard For A New Dimension In Sound
Much more than just a trademark for Sennheiser 3D audio products, AMBEO® puts a focus on collaboration on many different levels, covering an ever increasing number of immersive audio products and technologies for the entire audio signal chain, from capture to mixing and processing to reproduction.
By revealing its strategic focus on 3D audio from very early on, Sennheiser has made AMBEO® an invitation to you, the users and technology partners around the globe, to include your ideas, feedback and requirements in the design of the company’s 3D audio solutions, thus shaping the future of audio together with Sennheiser.
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.

The AMBEO SMART HEADSET is the world’s first intuitive, compact, and mobile 3D sound recording headset. Its earpieces are fitted with omnidirectional microphones that capture the sounds in your environment just like your ears would. This makes the AMBEO SMART HEADSET the ideal new tool for vloggers and other content creators, who want to dazzle their audience with audio just as immersive as their pictures. Especially because the resulting 3D recordings can be enjoyed through any pair of stereo headphones and make you feel like you are actually there listening live. Using Apogee’s proprietary PureDigital technology, the AMBEO SMART HEADSET integrates seamlessly with Apple iOS devices – and, of course, it delivers high-quality Sennheiser sound.
This headset has ears – yours
For the first time ever, owners of iOS devices can produce videos with a high-quality 3D audio track just by wearing a headset. To achieve that, the microphones are positioned to pick up the sound just like your ears would. With the Smart Slider you can adjust the mic sensitivity to normal or loud, i.e. concert, environments. This results in a stunningly three-dimensional and immersive sound experience, which can be enjoyed with any headphones on any stereo-capable device, allowing the listener to experience audio as if they were actually there.
High-tech meets convenient simplicity
Simple and easy to use, the AMBEO SMART HEADSET delivers all of the convenience and simplicity of a mobile device. 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. A version for Android will also be available at a later date.
Earpieces that let you hear your environment — with Situational Awareness & Active Noise Cancellation
The earpieces of the AMBEO SMART HEADSET possess a unique feature we call Situational Awareness. Using the rocker switch, you can either make the outside noise fade into your personal program, which lets you stay safe when you are on the street, or you can deploy the active noise cancellation, blocking out your acoustic environment to chill and enjoy your music undisturbed. Situational Awareness also works when you are recording or making a call and can, of course, also be turned off.
Everything you want from a headset
Aside from its unique 3D audio recording capabilities, the AMBEO SMART HEADSET is also a high-quality pair of in-ear headphones. The AMBEO SMART HEADSET delivers on the exceptional sound quality you expect from Sennheiser and provides ultimate comfort thanks to a special ear hook design, while the extremely stable in-ear fit minimizes structure-borne noise. An additional built-in microphone lets you take calls and operate voice control on your iOS device.
There’s an app for that
