Perhaps the most exclusive earbuds ever released! Sennheiser and AMG, the high-performance subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz AG, have entered into a new collaboration that sees the future of driving performance and the future of audio intersect in the new Mercedes-AMG ONE hypercar. The AMG ONE will give drivers an authentic Formula 1 racing experience, with Sennheiser MOMENTUM audio quality.
The two-seat Mercedes-AMG ONE will bring the most modern and efficient Formula 1 hybrid technology almost one-to-one from the racetrack to the road. Combining overwhelming racetrack performance with exemplary efficiency, the AMG ONE will produce more than 1,000 hp, at a breath-taking maximum speed of over 350 km/h.
The AMG One was unveiled as a concept car in 2017 at the International Motor Show Germany by F1 driver Lewis Hamilton. The production supercar is capped to 275 units and is priced at US$2.72M. All 275 have been sold and the production version of the One will roll out later this month. Lewis Hamilton has purchased two AMG Ones, of which one will be a gift to his father Anthony. Actor Mark Wahlberg has also purchased an AMG One.
To augment the driving experience by enabling a joyful listening experience on the road and attenuate engine sound, the Sennheiser AMBEO Mobility division will provide owners of AMG ONE with optimized, smart-controlled MOMENTUM True Wireless earbuds.
“MOMENTUM True Wireless is the perfect match for a car as powerful as the Mercedes-AMG ONE, as they enable users to enjoy incredible high-fidelity sound even in noisy environments via advanced Active Noise Cancellation. When greater situational awareness is needed, the Transparent Hearing feature lets the wearer blend in outside ambient sound at a touch” explained Frank Foppe, Sennheiser True Wireless Product Manager.
Ergonomically designed for the best possible fit and to reduce fatigue, as well as offering up to 28-hours battery life by charging on the go from the supplied case, the earbuds are co-branded with the AMG-Mercedes and Sennheiser names.“At Sennheiser, we love pushing boundaries and setting new standards for the listening experience. And emotion is driven by sound, in both the audio and the automotive worlds. Driving an F1 engine while enjoying premium music quality is the kind of unthinkable user experience that our AMBEO Mobility team is built to address”, added Veronique Larcher, Head of Sennheiser AMBEO Mobility. As sound is one of the most thrilling elements of any high-performance car, the collaboration between Mercedes-AMG and Sennheiser for the AMG ONE came naturally: Both parties are assuring an outstanding experience to fully meet customer’s expectations for premium quality.
