Sennheiser Ambeo VR Microphone

The Sennheiser AMBEO® VR Mic is an ambisonic microphone fitted with four matched KE 14 capsules in a tetrahedral arrangement. This special design allows you to capture the sound that surrounds you from a single point. As a result you get fully spherical ambisonics sound to match your VR video/spherical 360 content.

The output of the Sennheiser AMBEO VR Mic is in Ambisonics A-format which is the raw 4-channel output from the capsules that has to be converted into Ambisonics B-format. This is done by the Sennheiser AMBEO A-B format converter plugin, which is available as a free download in VST, AU and AAX format so you can use it in any PC or MAC based DAW. Here are links to the plugin:-

B-format is a W, X, Y, Z representation of the sound field around the microphone. W being the sum of all 4 capsules, whereas X, Y and Z are three virtual bi-directional microphone patterns representing front/back, left/right and up/down. So directional information can be reproduced.

The Ambeo is supplied with a foam windshield, a Rycote INV-7 shock mount, a 4 channel output splitter cable and a 1.5m extension cable. The foam is OK for indoor use but outdoors you’re going to need a bit more wind protection so we’ve put together this specially priced bundle of an Ambeo with a Rycote Baby Ball Gag and Windjammer.
