The smart head­set was first show­cased as this year’s CES, Sennheiser has teamed up with Apogee Elec­tron­ics to pro­duce the head­set that utilises two mi­cro­phones to give the im­pres­sion of re­al­is­tic three­d­i­men­sional sound.

The omni-di­rec­tional mi­cro­phones are able to de­tect sub­tle changes in tim­ing, vol­ume and tim­bre that oc­cur in each side of the user’s ear.

“With this new head­set you can use you iOS de­vices cam­era to record, ex­pe­ri­ence and re­live the same bal­ance of three-di­men­sional sound and 180-de­gree vis­ual per­spec­tive that we as hu­mans are ac­cus­tomed to in our per­spec­tive of the real world,” said Dr. An­dreas Sennheiser, Co-CEO of Sennheiser.

The over-ear hook de­sign of the head­set makes for a com­fort­able fit and as a record­ing de­vice, the Ambeo is also a high-qual­ity in-ear head­phones. The built-in mi­cro­phone al­lows users to make and re­ceive phone calls.

The head­set sup­ports seam­less iOS in­te­gra­tion, al­low­ing users to eas­ily record au­dio and video (us­ing the iOS cam­era app) via a light­ning adap­tor.

“The first time you put on head­phones and hear a video made from the Ambeo Smart Head­set, you will be amazed,” said Betty Ben­nett, Apogee Co-Founder and CEO.

“It adds an en­tirely new di­men­sion to watch­ing videos and mem­o­ries cap­tured on your iPhone.”
