Watch B&H’s AB as he takes to Central Park to demonstrate Sennheiser’s AMBEO SMART HEADSET. You’ll see him wearing the dual-purpose earphones/binaural-recording headset, which captures stereophonic 3D audio fit for use in immersive entertainment content. Whether it’s VR, experimental podcasting, or recording an acapella band with lifelike you-are-there placement, this headset will handle the job. You’ll hear this immediately, as we at B&H were fortunate enough to catch the talented Cover Story doo-wopping their way into glorious harmony. The microphones themselves capture high-quality audio, to be sure, but that’s only part of the picture. With preamps, conversion, and soft-limiting brought to you by Apogee, the AMBEO SMART HEADSET is truly the smart choice.
