I’ve been using Sennheiser’s $300 Ambeo Smart Headset to record stereo binaural audio in my day-to-day life, and my smartphone videos and mobile audio recordings have never been this great. The headset — which is part binaural recorder, part headphones — was an exciting product to me because I work in the field of audio, and I love to record stereo soundscapes.

World’s first intuitive, compact, and mobile 3D sound recording headset

from Canadian Reviewer

While I admit the use case for the Ambeo Smart headset may be limited. It’s still quite amazing that Sennheiser has been able to shrink their Ambeo technology into an affordable and easy to use device that’s great as a general purpose headset.

Mobile audio goes binaural

from TechRadar

A new audio frontier? These easy-to-use earphones with binaural recording create immersive 3D spacial sound. Our only concern is that they're slightly ahead of their time.

As good as it gets

from Gadgets Now

The Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset clearly is a unique device and has a lot going for it. However, as of now it’s compatible with just iOS devices which makes it a very niche offering. At Rs 19,990, it’s not a budget product either and you might wonder that if features like binaural recording are really needed or not.

Offer great sound quality

Good Housekeeping

For those that want great headphones and to be able to record videos with great sound, these are ideal. Simple to use, they only work with iPhones or iPads and they are expensive, but worth it.

Definitely worth considering

from NDTV

The Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset is currently the only pair of headphones for iOS devices that lets you capture 3D spatial audio, which makes it rather unique. The binaural audio effect is amazing, and adds a new dimension to the videos you record.

New Atlas

They produce a lovely effect

from New Atlas

You could look at the AMBEO as a very expensive headset, or a fairly expensive video microphone. But that's missing the point – it is something unique that opens up certain creative possibilities you can't get with other mics. It's not a massively in-your-face effect, but it's certainly something you'll notice if you're looking for it.

My favorite headphones of the year

from Forbes

I feel like the Ambeo Smart Headsets were a crazy pet project by a group inside Sennheiser that they somehow convinced management to produce, sort of like the Jaguar XJ220. Because as much as I love these things, I can’t quite figure out the person they’re for. If you think these are cool,...More

I feel like the Ambeo Smart Headsets were a crazy pet project by a group inside Sennheiser that they somehow convinced management to produce, sort of like the Jaguar XJ220. Because as much as I love these things, I can’t quite figure out the person they’re for. If you think these are cool, they absolutely are. They’re a fabulous, and entirely unique, headphone.

Capture, relive, and share your experiences just as you heard them

While indisputably awesome from a technology perspective, we did have to stop and consider whether this binaural recording of the Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset is a fun gimmick or a must-have feature.
