„The binaural sound effects are impressive, and they do really add something that the virtual reality era is missing“

 

L'AMBEO SMART HEADSET est le premier ensemble écouteurs-micros binauraux mobile, compact et intuitif au monde. Ses écouteurs sont équipés de microphones omnidirectionnels qui capturent les sons qui vous entourent tout comme le font vos oreilles. Les enregistrements 3D qui en résultent peuvent être appréciés au travers de n’importe quelle paire d'écouteurs stéréo et vous donner l’impression d’être réellement sur place et d’écouter en direct. Faisant appel à la technologie PureDigital, propriété d’Apogee, l’AMBEO SMART HEADSET s'intègre de manière transparente aux appareils iOS Apple – et offre bien sûr la qualité sonore supérieure de Sennheiser.

Ces écouteurs ont des oreilles – les vôtres

Pour la première fois, il suffit aux possesseurs d'appareils iOS de porter des écouteurs pour produire des vidéos avec un son binaural de haute qualité. Binaural signifie que les microphones captent le son exactement comme le font vos oreilles. Il en résulte des sensations sonores incroyablement tridimensionnelles et immersives dont vous pouvez profiter lorsque vous regardez vos vidéos. C'est comme si vous écoutiez en direct le son qui a été enregistré. Cette nouvelle dimension peut être reproduite par n'importe quel casque.

La high-tech à la rencontre de la simplicité pratique

Facile à utiliser grâce à sa conception intuitive, l'AMBEO SMART HEADSET offre toute la commodité et la simplicité d'un dispositif mobile. Disposant de la technologie Soft Limit et d’un préampli micro exclusifs d’Apogee, en plus d’une conversion A/N et N/A réglée avec précision et d'un connecteur Lightning à certification MFi Apple, ces écouteurs-micros s'intègrent de manière transparente à tous les appareils iOS Apple compatibles. Une version pour Android sera également disponible à une date ultérieure.

Des écouteurs qui vous permettent d'entendre votre environnement

La fonction d'écoute transparente (« Transparent Hearing ») de l’AMBEO SMART HEADSET vous permet de continuer à entendre ce qui se passe autour de vous quand vous utilisez les écouteurs. Elle vous permet de mélanger les sons ambiants de votre environnement avec ce que vous faites reproduire dans vos écouteurs. Un précieux atout en matière de sécurité, surtout lorsque vous êtes à l'extérieur et près des routes. La fonction Transparent Hearing peut être activée à l'aide d'un commode sélecteur à trois positions, et fonctionne également lorsque vous enregistrez ou passez un appel.

Tout ce que vous attendez d'un micro-casque

En plus de ses propres possibilités d'enregistrement audio en 3D, l'AMBEO SMART HEADSET est aussi une paire d’écouteurs intra-auriculaires de haute qualité. L’AMBEO SMART HEADSET offre la qualité sonore exceptionnelle que vous attendez de Sennheiser et assure un confort ultime grâce à une conception spéciale du tour d’oreille, le maintien extrêmement stable dans l’oreille minimisant les bruits de structure. Un autre microphone intégré sert aux appels téléphoniques et au contrôle vocal de votre appareil iOS.

FAQs

  • What is 3D Audio and why do I need it?

    • 3D Binaural Audio recording is the process of capturing the world around you as you hear it. Sounds that occur behind you will truly sound as if they are coming from behind again. While similar to surround sound, the resulting recording is actually a stereo audio file. AMBEO SMART HEADSET can record 3D binaural audio onto any video file and anyone can experience 3D sound simply by listening back on any pair of stereo headphones.

  • Why are there microphones on the earpieces?

    • AMBEO SMART HEADSET includes one omnidirectional microphone on the outside of each earpiece. These microphones are designed for three purposes: 3D Audio recording, transparent hearing and active noise cancellation.

  • How can I share my videos recorded with AMBEO SMART HEADSET?

    • AMBEO SMART HEADSET allows you to record 3D sound using the standard Apple Camera App on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. To share these videos, simply click on the “share” button on your iOS device (the square with an arrow pointing up) to send via Messages, Email, Social Media and more.

  • Can I do phone calls with the AMBEO SMART HEADSET?

    • Yes, AMBEO SMART HEADSET includes a microphone in the earphone cable (in addition to the omnidirectional mics in each earpiece) so that you can answer calls and even say “Hey Siri” at any time to activate Siri on your iOS device.

  • Can I talk to Siri with the AMBEO SMART HEADSET? (Voice control)

    • Yes, AMBEO SMART HEADSET includes a microphone in the earphone cable so that you can answer calls and even say“Hey Siri” at any time to activate Siri on your iOS device.

  • What Apple products is the AMBEO SMART HEADSET compatible with?

    • iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPad Pro (10.5-inch), iPad Pro (12.9-inch) 1st generation, iPad Pro (12.9-inch) 2nd generation, iPad Pro (9.7-inch), iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad (4th generation), iPad (5th generation), iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPod touch (6th generation)

  • What is the System Requirement for the AMBEO Smart Headset?

    • iOS Version: 10.3.3 or later

  • Will the AMBEO Smart Headset work with my Android Phone?

    • Currently, AMBEO SMART HEADSET will not work with Android phones, only with an iOS Product but an Android version will be available in 2018.

  • Will AMBEO SMART HEADSET work on my Mac or PC?

    • No, AMBEO SMART HEADSET is designed with a Lightning connector to plug into any modern iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, but will not connect to a Mac or Windows computer.

  • How can I record audio (no video) with AMBEO SMART HEADSET?

    • Yes, using Apps like Apogee´s MetaRecorder, iOS voice memo recorder or other stereo audio recording apps you can capture 3D audio without the need to record video at the same time.

  • How much power will it drain from my iOS device?

    • Very little power will be taken from your iPhone when using the headset. AMBEO SMART HEADSET is designed according to the Apple MFI specification and will not draw additional power from your device or have a major impact on battery life.

  • When do I have to switch from “Natural recording level” to the “reduced recording level”?

    • If you want to do a recording in a very noisy environment e.g. at a concert, then please change from the “natural recording level” to the “reduced recording level” to avoid clipping (e.g. due to subwoofers). The natural recording level is the correct setting for most situations (in towns, nature, street musician, etc.)

  • What is “Situational Awareness”?

    • Situational Awareness is a feature that allows you to control the amount of outside sounds you hear in the SMART HEADSET. With the Situational Awareness rocker switch, you can enable Active Noise Cancellation, Transparent hearing or leave it disabled.

  • What is “Transparent Hearing” and how does it work?

    • Using the SMART HEADSET’s built-in mics, the Transparent Hearing feature lets you hear outside sounds and create the perfect balance between your surroundings and your music. This is ideal for bikers, walkers, joggers and anyone else who wants to be aware of what is going on around them without removing their headphones.

      With the free AMBEO SMART HEADSET app (available on the Apple App Store), it´s possible to select one of three Transparent Hearing presets or enable all 3 levels of Transparent Hearing in the App for a handling via remote control/ rocker switch.:

      • Reduce Level - when you are in a loud environment such as a concert, this setting offers the hearing protection of earplugs but with a reduced level of surrounding sound. So if you think the music is too loud choose this reduced level and protect your hearing while enjoying the concert without compromises in sound quality.

      • Natural Level - The level of surrounding sound is at its natural level, neither reduced or amplified. This is the recommended Transparent Hearing level when you do a recording with the AMBEO SMART HEADSET to stay connected to the scene although being blocked by Inears. You still be able to react accordingly to the situation you are in.

      • Amplify Level - Surrounding sound is amplified, so you can hear every nuance.

  • How does “Active Noise Cancellation” work?

    • Sound from the AMBEO SMART HEADSET´s built-in omnidirectional mics is actively processed to generate a “negative image” waveform. The idea is a physical principle of noise and anti-noise. An artificially generated sound field that is phase-inverted to the sound field of the noise in our ambience and has the effect of cancelling out the unwanted low frequency noise which is close to the ears (with the stereo microphones). Sennheisers sophisticated electronic circuit calculates a sound wave that is phase-inverted by 180 degrees to the unwanted noise. It is most effective on continuous sounds such as airplane engine
      noise, rumble, and ventilator fan noise.

  • How do I obtain the best earpiece fit?

    • Included in the SMART HEADSET package are three pairs of ear adaptors to fit various ear sizes. For the best experience with your AMBEO SMART HEADSET, it’s crucial to experiment with the different ear adaptors for the best fit. The earpieces should fit in such a manner as to seal the ear canal from external sound, to the same degree as if you were to block your ear canal with a finger. It’s not unusual that different sized ear adaptors work best for each ear. For some individuals, widely available foam ear adaptors provide a more reliable seal.

  • How can I distinguish the Left earpiece from the Right?

    • Look for an indication of Left or Right (L or R) on the inside of the ear hook just above the ear adaptor. When placing the earpiece into the ear canal, the hook extends behind the ear.

  • How can I improve the bass response?

    • The SMART HEADSET’s bass response depends on the proper fit of the earpieces - see “How do I obtain the best earpiece fit?” above. With the proper earpiece fit, the bass response is full and even. The free SMART HEADSET app ( available on the Apple App Store ) offers additional customization of the frequency response with its user-adjustable EQ feature. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sennheiser-ambeo-smartheadset/id1231509105?mt=8

  • Active Noise Cancellation isn’t canceling external noise - how can I improve it?

    • Active Noise Cancellation is highly dependent on the effective seal of the ear canal by properly fitting earpieces - see “How do I obtain the best earpiece fit?” above. With a proper seal, Active Noise Cancellation effectively blocks noise such as air handling rumble, airplane noise and other continuous sounds.

  • What is your warranty policy for AMBEO SMART HEADSET?

    • AMBEO SMART HEADSET holds a two year warranty from the date of purchase with valid purchase receipt from an authorized Sennheiser or Apogee dealer.

  • If I need help with my AMBEO SMART HEADSET or if it is defective, what do I do?

  • Is the AMBEO SMART HEADSET waterproof?

    • No, the AMBEO SMART HEADSET is not waterproof.

  • What type of capsule is built in the AMBEO SMART HEADSET?

    • It is a very small professional electret capsule with omnidirectional characteristics.

  • What if I replay the video with AMBEO SMART HEADSET not with headphones but on a screen with speakers?

    • You will still experience a high sound quality (stereo) because it is a stereo recording but not in 3D surround.
