Quick Start Guide
From the manufacturer
Sennheiser is shaping the Future of Audio – a vision built on a 70-year history of innovation and a continued drive for excellence that is woven into our company’s DNA and culture. Around the world, our employees share this passion in the pursuit of the perfect sound, creating products that exceed expectations and set new benchmarks in audio.
Sennheiser Ambeo Smart Headset
Looking at the Ambeo Smart Headset, you see the world’s first intuitive, mobile recording headset for immersive 3D sound. It is fitted with microphones that capture sound just like your ears do. Thus, this unique headset produces fascinating spatial recordings. For sound experiences that make you feel as if you are there and listening live, which can be enjoyed with any pair of headphones connected to stereo equipment. This makes the Ambeo Smart Headset ideal for vloggers and other creators, who want to dazzle their audience with audio just as immersive as their pictures. The Sennheiser Ambeo Smart Headset – which is also a full-fledged headset, delivering high-quality Sennheiser sound – is for use with iOS devices only.
- Did you know? The Ambeo trademark represents an increasing number of Sennheiser audio products and technologies for the entire audio signal chain – from capture to mixing and processing to reproduction – that turn sound into a truly immersive experience.
Unique 3D recording capabilities
For the first time ever, as an owner of an iOS device you can create videos with a high-quality binaural audio track just by wearing a headset. Binaural means, the two omnidirectional microphones located in the earpieces of the Ambeo Smart Headset pick up the sound just like your ears do. The Smart Slider allows microphone sensitivity adjustment to optimise recording performance in loud environments like concerts.
Immersive audio on every headphone
Thanks to its binaural microphone setup, audio tracks made with the Ambeo Smart Headset virtually put the listener in the place where the sound was recorded – be it a noisy street corner, a ride through a stunning countryside, a road trip, a concert event, and more. These authentic spatial sound experiences can be enjoyed at playback with any headphones on any stereo-capable device.
Seamless iOS integration
Featuring Apogee’s proprietary Soft Limit and mic preamp plus precisely tuned A/D and D/A conversion, as well as a Lightning connector, the MFi-certified Ambeo Smart Headset integrates seamlessly with Apple iOS devices.
Just plug and create. An Android version will be available at a later date.
The earpieces of the Ambeo Smart Headset possess a unique feature: Situational Awareness. It offers two functions, which can be controlled using the rocker switch.You can either activate the Transparent Hearing function to fade the outside noise into your personal programme, 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 enjoy your music undisturbed. Situational Awareness also works when you are recording or making a call and can, of course, also be turned off.
A full-fledged, easy-to-use headset
Beside its unique 3D audio capabilities, the Ambeo Smart Headset is also a high-quality headset, offering intuitive handling and great Sennheiser sound. A special ear-hook design combines low structure-borne noise and ultimate wearing comfort with an extremely stable in-ear fit. The headset’s lightweight in-line remote with an additional built-in microphone optimised for speech makes taking calls and voice-controlling your iOS device a breeze.
Dedicated app for additional functions
With a special dedicated app the smart slider of the Ambeo Smart Headset can be programmed with various functions (default function is mic sensitivity control), adapting it to your individual requirements.

I first tried the Headphones to listen to Music from my iPhone, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and crispness of the sound and could not fault it for this. the volume and pause button on the headphones are great. the control box sits in front and is easy accessible and easy to use.
I then tried the headphones as hands free tried a phone conversation both indoors and out. Indoors there was no problem at all with background noise or hearing the voice of the other person. Using them outdoors the other person could hear the back ground noises but could also hear my voice clearly. My only concern was the closer you are to loud noises the harder it was to communicate.
I then used them as they were designed to make videos with the great 3D sound. I filmed my grandchildren and the quality of sound recording is brilliant. we watched the videos back and the whole family loved them. It is a great piece of design and ingenuity with a multi functional purpose. The build quality is not high end but it is sufficient to carry out the job intended.
Great piece of kit thou .
A good product for those who are interested in recording high-quality 3D video sound. During testing, I found out that the headphones are exceptionally good indoors, however, they struggle outside as they tend to pick a lot of background noise - even though they are designed to cut out ambient noise.
The earphones can be used without the AMBEO app, although some of the features of the product are limited if the app is not used. The best feature of AMBEO App is the ‘Situational Awareness’ feature which allows you to hear what is going on around you even when the headphones are in.
The sound quality of these earphones varies depending on earbuds used, once the right size of the earbuds is found the sound is very clear, controlled and balanced across different genres of music and watching/editing videos.
They are comfortable and stay in your ear all day if needed due to the hook that goes over the top of the ears.
The earphones deal really nicely with noise cancelling which provides a better overall sound.
For the price (£259) - the build quality of these earphones could be massively improved. The plastic used on the main modules of the earphones feels durable, however, the main cable that runs throughout the headphones is very thin and doesn’t feel durable when used throughout the day. Lightning Connector and the cable that connects it feels very fragile and cheap.
The control module is very chunky and gets in the way often and in my opinion, it should have been placed further down as weight of the cable
Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset should serve people who need compact headphones to record high-quality 3D recording on top of providing high-class sound quality and noise cancellation.
I listened to some 3d videos and listening to people talking around you is great but the reality is you can only use this product with an I phone or I pad due to the connection cable and you are unlikely to have both with you especially if your phone is android (unlike to carry your iPad everywhere for the potential of a 3d sound video) they provide a thin smart looking bag for the headphone but wouldn't be to safe in the bag and could break so something more protective could be better. Sound quality for music (Would expect this to be the main reason for using) was not as good as expected and sounded some what tinny compared to other sennheaser products I have. Overall cool proud t but the rest of the world need to catch an up and produce more 3d sound and tutorials for this to be used regularly.
First impressions are great, the headphones are much more solid than the standard iPhone lightening ones and because they have the 8 pin connector, there are no additional adapters required.
The over the ear hook system are comfortable and easy to wear and you hardly notice them when on he move.
I must admit I was dubious about the cost of these headphone (over £200 at the point of writing) and wanted to know what justified it. The unit has additional microphones and speakers that isolate sound and provide excellent sound/noise cancellation.
Also, for the bloggers who record audio with their videos, it provides a great surround sound effect and voice calls are very clear.
I’ve been in Seoul, South Korea and was walking through the busy city with my music on and was in a world of my own. The noise cancellation feature was superb.
Voice calls were also very clear and my caller could hear me very clearly despite the ambient noise.
All in all, it’s a great headphone set but in my opinion should be much cheaper to compete with similar headsets. The price is so restrictive and I don’t think many people would be making a purchase at this cost.
