When it comes to home theater systems, the soundbar is, for many, one of the most convenient inventions. It grants access to extremely high-quality sound without the overwhelming amount of space and set up effort required for a traditional surround sound system.
Sennheiser, a company known for releasing high-quality audio devices, just announced a new soundbar called AMBEO, and it looks like it could be quite the game-changer for anyone who’s obsessed with bumping sound that doesn’t take up too much space.
Sennheiser AMBEO Features
Obviously, the main feature of this particular soundbar is the quality of audio it produces. It uses 5.1.4 sound, which the company promises will deliver an “as if there 3D spatial experience.”
The sound quality comes from a whopping 13 drivers packed into a single bar. It uses those speakers, along with the ability to capture the knowledge of each individual room’s size and reflective surfaces, to replicate the aforementioned 5.1.4 sound without spreading speakers around the room.
For anyone who’s really into bass (and let’s be honest, who isn’t?) the AMBEO promises deep response as low as 30hz, which should let this speaker bump all the lows in your favorite music and movies. The craziest thing about the bass this soundbar is able to output is that there is no subwoofer—it all comes from the main unit. Sennheiser says it uses “six proprietary 4-inch, long-throw woofers that achieve incredible bass reproduction without an external subwoofer.”
As for connectivity, the AMBEO comes with Bluetooth and Google Cast support, so you’ll be able to listen to all of your music on it with ease. It also comes with a companion app that you can use to customize the experience of using the high-end audio device.
Sennheiser AMBEO Price and Release Date
The AMBEO is certainly not an entry-level device, and it comes with a price tag to match the ultra high-end specifications. When it releases on June 12, 2019, the soundbar will come with a $2499.95 price tag. Obviously, that puts this device clearly in the premium sound space, but it most definitely appears to come with features and specs that make it worthy of carrying such a high price tag.
