Sennheiser will lend its loudspeaker and microphone know-how to the mission, creating an Ambeo sound system for listening to audio and taking telephone calls as you drive.
The model’s Ambeo Soundbar was launched at CES 2018 and impressed us with its 3D sound virtualization know-how. Bringing the identical idea to automotive audio is an surprising alternative but it surely might enhance the expertise of listening to music whereas driving. The know-how can take audio from any supply, even when it’s not particularly 3D audio, and switch it right into a customizable immersive 3D playback.
The system makes use of a multi-channel speaker set-up plus a subwoofer which ought to create a top quality audio expertise for passengers in addition to the driving force. Even the seat headrests have been built-in into the speaker system. And there are two microphone arrays for clear telephone conversations.
Curious listeners can hear the system for themselves at a showcase on the Monterey Automotive Week from August 15th to 18th. There is no phrase on pricing but however provided that that is Sennheiser, we count on the system will not come low cost.
