Audio device manufacturer Sennheiser has long been advocating the advantages of its Ambeo 3D audio technology. However, the access to this technology was pretty limited until now. Sennheiser in an effort to make special soundscape more accessible, has launched the first speaker product of the company in 2018, which will pack the Ambeo 3D Sound Bar.

The speaker is completely wireless, with support for both – Bluetooth as well as Wi-Fi. There’s also voice control for those who enjoy sending in commands. The company also showcased the speaker’s prototype, which the final product to arrive soon. The speaker features 4-inches in terms of size, which is not really a deal-breaker as such.

The speaker won’t be as good in recording as it would be in outputting music, due to its true 9.1 support. Sennheiser revealed that they are actively working with different music labels in order to generate and provide more content for 3D audio capture at sporting events and more.
