The Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar Review talks about everything this enigmatic soundbar has to offer. In this article, we are going to talk about what makes this soundbar one of the best in the market and why has it become so popular among the audiophiles.
We all know Sennheiser as an audio specialist who have come up with a wide range of equipment to enhance your listening experience over the years. Still, the Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar is their only offering in the soundbar domain and is one of the best high-end home audio systems.
In this review, we have done extensive testing on the Sennheiser soundbar, contemplating whether it can deliver on all the big promises made by the brand or not. This is a single unit that offers multi-speaker experience. The best part is that it is one of the best soundbars you can go for coming in a single device.
Sound is one of the most important aspects in a home theater system. It makes our experience all the more dynamic and immersive especially when we are viewing a movie in 4K dimension. The most advanced sound technology right now is Dolby Atmos. It uses height channels to expand the sound field and create a surround sound experience. You will be able to hear sound coming from different directions which is exact what makes Dolby Atmos a total pleasure.
Lucky for us, most soundbars in the market support Dolby Atmos and so does the Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar. It takes a collection of discreet speakers and grills them all together in a single bar so you can have a wonderful listening experience without the security depositing on your door.
The Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar features a total of thirteen speakers; six woofers, two top-firing drivers and 5 tweeters. All combined into a single soundbar so you won’t have to invest in subwoofers and or additional speakers separately.
Putting the speakers together, they provide a maximum frequency range of 30 Hz to 20 kHz. The overall build quality is solid and pretty vibration resistant. There is an OLED at the middle of the bar that gives you all the information on presets and volume for added convenience.
You will also find a strip on the top of the soundbar containing all the buttons for adjusting volume, AMBEO processing and for toggling source. There is also a remote control in the package so you won’t have to hover over the soundbar and can conveniently control it even from afar.
There is also an HDMI port and eARC port so you connect it to your TV. There is an optical input as well in case your TV doesn’t support eARC.
It is one of the most powerful soundbars that you are ever going to come across. You can adjust your volume on a slider from 0 to 50 and in all honesty, we never felt the need to take it above 30. It fully accommodates a large room full of people and you will be able to hear all the finest details of the music you so wholeheartedly enjoy.
It delivers a clear sound track with detailed dialogue delivery. We also found the Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar to be an incredible choice for playing our favorite games. You will be able to hear even the slightest footprint in the background while having a much more dynamic experience.
There is also a night mode present on the soundbar so your neighbors don’t come complaining. This lowers the overall dimension of sound delivery while keeping the dialogue clarity intact.
Moreover, there is a Bluetooth connection as well if you’d like to stream music directly from your phone. We won’t call the Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar a portable soundbar but you can place it in your room even if you don’t have a TV and play directly from your smartphone. The mobile application also come in handy for this purpose since it’s detailed and allows you to make certain adjustments conveniently.
Obviously, if you’re going to invest in one of the most expensive soundbar on the planet then you would like to know what sound format it supports. Well, the Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar is compatible with a plethora of sound formats including Dolby Atmos, MPEG-H, DTS:X along with Sony’s latest 360 Reality Audio.
On top of that, Sennheiser has backed the soundbar with a 10-year limited time warranty. Though the price point of this soundbar is pretty high. But given all the features it comes with and the incredible sound quality, we found it pretty much worth the money.
