the best soundbar in the world gets two little sisters

After releasing the best soundbar in the world, Sennheiser is presenting two new products at IFA.

A past master in the field of audio, Sennheiser is taking advantage of the Berlin IFA show – which we cover on the Journal du Geek but also on our networks – to introduce two new products that audiophiles are sure to love. After having designed the best soundbar in the world, the German brand invites us to discover its two little sisters, the AMBEO Soundbar Plus and the AMBEO Sub. Two more compact models, but just as powerful.

Double the fun

First of all, the AMBEO Soundbar Plus is very strong. Smaller and less premium than the AMBEO Max, the soundbar is no less spectacular. This is the “first 7.1.4 standalone soundbar. in the world” and it benefits from the same sound quality as its big sister.

In terms of specifics, the device offers a self-calibration technology that allows you to virtually position a set of 7 speakers around and above the listener. The promise of cinematic sound at home, and with a space-saving system. It’s Sennheiser’s hallmark and incorporating it into a smaller model than its best-selling is a great idea. This is why this same system is taken up by the Plus and Sub models.

In addition to this, the soundbar has many other listening technologies, such as Dolby ATMOS, DTS:X, 360Reality Audio and MPEG-H Audio. Everything is navigable thanks to AMBEO’s in-house OS which supports the following services: Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect.

For the AMBEO Sub, we find more or less the same characteristics that guarantee flawless quality, and Sennheiser puts the emphasis on bass with a myriad of incredible technologies. Thus, the device is entitled to a high-end proprietary 8-inch woofer, as well as a 350 W class D amplifier and a closed box. The whole thing guarantees us bass up to 27 Hz.

Both soundbars are obviously controllable and customizable thanks to the Smart Control app, which allows you to adjust the balances or adapt the sound of your device to what you are listening to or to the effect you are looking for.

Price and availability

The AMBEO Soundbar Plus soundbar will be available for purchase from September 22, but is already available for pre-order at a price of €1,499. Same thing for the AMBEO Sub which is offered at a recommended price of 699€.
