Sennheiser released an update to its Smart Control app and the new AMBEO|OS, which will provide owners of the Ambeo soundbar with new experiences, a more intuitive app interface, and more sound control and personalization when using headphones.
AMBEO|OS, available for all Ambeo soundbars, supports Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, and Tidal Connect. It uses Wi-Fi versus Bluetooth Low Energy to connect to the Sennheiser Smart Control app to afford a faster and more responsive user experience. The operating system is also more stable and secure, says Sennheiser.
“The all-new AMBEO|OS is a gamechanger for our Ambeo soundbar, and we are certain our customers are going to love it,” says Maximilian Voigt, Product Manager for Sennheiser Ambeo soundbar. “By offering even more audio streaming providers and an improved user experience, Sennheiser customers will enjoy personalized high-resolution audio streaming with enhanced features.”
AMBEO|OS can be accessed through the rebuilt Smart Control app. The app features more modern aesthetics and a more personal, relevant, and intuitive user experience. The Smart Control app has new features for Sennheiser headphones users, including Sound Check and Sound Zones. Sound Check guides you through three easy steps to find the perfect EQ preset according to their tastes. Sound Zones let true wireless users tailor EQ settings, noise cancellation, and transparent hearing to defined places, like home, the office, or on the go. You can also dynamically adjust audio settings according to your location.
User accounts make it easier to transfer settings and customizations between Sennheiser devices. The in-app Discovery area, meanwhile, provides relevant product news and updates from the Sennheiser world.
“The next update to our Sennheiser Smart Control app will offer our customers a level of personalization that they have never experienced before,” says Polina Gartenfluss, Product Manager for Sennheiser Consumer Mobile Applications. “On top of individualized EQ presets and tailored sound setting for different locations, we are giving our customers access to personalized content to better meet their needs.”
The Smart Control app also includes an intuitive equalizer, pulls up digital user manuals, and provides the latest software and firmware for Sennheiser consumer products.
You can also opt to control the Ambeo soundbar via the dedicated web interface, and maintain the same precise control and ease of use along with a range of future-proof options to integrate the soundbar into your digital environment.
The free software and firmware update went live to all Smart Control and Ambeo soundbar users on March 29.
