Sennheiser is introducing the Ambeo Soundbar Plus, the latest addition to the company’s Ambeo lineup. The Soundbar Plus will cost $1,499.95, which is $1,000 less than Sennheiser’s previous Ambeo Soundbar — now being called the Ambeo Soundbar Max. This new product is being billed as the first 7.l.4 standalone soundbar, but somehow the advanced audio technology is being packed into a smaller product than the Soundbar Max. One of the major selling points of both Soundbar is the automatic self-calibration technology that “senses the acoustics of your room and adapts flawlessly to every environment,” according to the product overview on Sennheiser’s website.
The announcement comes alongside another product from Sennheiser that pairs with the Ambeo Soundbar Plus: the Ambeo Sub. This subwoofer, which comes at an additional $699.95, wirelessly links with the Soundbar — plus up to three additional subwoofers, should you wish — to deliver bass that Sennheiser says can go down to 27Hz. The Sub comes with a 350W class-D amplifier and an 8-in. woofer, and also features self-calibration and performance optimization technologies.
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X are among the audio formats supported by the Soundbar Plus, and therefore Ambeo Sub, and the Soundbar includes streaming integrations like Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast and more. It won’t take long for these products to hit shelves, as they are both releasing on Sept. 22.
