Capture Your Aural VR World with Sennheiser AMBEO

Match your VR video with a VR microphone from Sennheiser.

Sennheiser's AMBEO VR Mic is for those seeking to immerse their audience with the full emotional experience of virtual reality. The ambisonic microphone is fitted with four KE 14 capsules in a tetrahedral arrangement. The design allows you to capture surrounding sounds from a single point, resulting in audio that matches your VR video and 360 content. 

The microphone delivers A-format, a raw 4-channel output that has to be converted into a new set of 4 channels, the Ambisonics B-format. This can be achieved with Sennheiser's AMBEO A-B format converter, a free plugin for PC and Mac. 

Tech Specs

  • 4x cardioid pick-up pattern
  • 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response 
  • DIN12M microphone connector (XLR adapter cable included)
