October 22, 2018

Sennheiser has unveiled the Ambeo AR One in-ear headphones – the first spatial listening accessory to receive official certification by Magic Leap, the leader in spatial computing. Also launched is the accompanying Ambeo Augmented Audio Lab app. Providing users with full control over their sound world, Ambeo AR One empowers developers and creators to craft powerful spatial computing experiences in which real sounds seamlessly blend with virtual audio.

The Ambeo AR One in-ear phones enable spatial computing developers and creators to craft thrilling experiences where real-world sounds blend with virtual audio, while securing their focus and control in the process. The Ambeo AR One features transparent Hearing – At the touch of a button, developers and creators can choose how much of the outside world’s sound, captured by the headset’s built-in microphones, blends into their spatial audio experience. By mixing the right level of external acoustic environment with the virtual audio world, developers can create truly immersive and social experiences.

The Ambeo AR One provides effective sealing through its Comply ear tips, which expand to perfectly fit the ear canal. They enable creators to shut out external noise to focus on the audio content undisturbed, and also ensure optimum bass reproduction. Lightweight and discreet, the Ambeo AR One is also ideal for enjoying music after work, with their ear hook design and range of silicon adapters that keep the earphones secure and comfortable.

The Ambeo Augmented Audio Lab is a fun, creative sandbox-style application for the Ambeo AR One earphones and the Magic Leap One Creator Edition. It allows developers to play around with real world sounds and use them to create unique spatial soundscapes. They can record them in the app as loops and mix them with loop banks. Several loop banks will be provided for users to get started, including one by beatboxer and music producer SK Shlomo.

Behind every thrilling spatial computing experience is the intense, sustained focus of developers and creators, who expertly integrate the latest in visual and audio technologies. With these professionals in mind, Sennheiser worked in close collaboration with Magic Leap to develop the new Ambeo AR One in- ears and the AMBEO Augmented Audio Lab companion app to create the perfect complement to the Magic Leap One Creator Edition.
