Joining the company’s HD1 line, the new in-ear wireless HD1 model combines an acoustic design with Bluetooth 4.1, AAC codec support and Qualcomm AptX. The headphones feature stainless-steel in-ear sound tunnels, said to have been custom machined for enhanced acoustic precision with a powerful bass response.
The AMBEO Smart Surround earphones, meanwhile, are designed to let consumers easily capture and listen to binaural audio recordings on their smartphones. Following the unveiling of Sennheiser’s AMBEO 3D audio technology program and the introduction of the AMBEO VR Mic at last year’s CES, the Smart Surround will be the audio specialist’s first AMBEO consumer product.
Finally, the HD 4.50BTNC and HD 4.40BT wireless headsets are the first Bluetooth models in the company’s HD 4 series. Both the HD 4.50BTNC and HD 4.40BT features Bluetooth 4.0 and AptX, NFC pairing, on-ear controls, and a built-in mic. The HD 4.50BTNC adds active noise cancellation.
Sennheiser’s HD1 will become available this month, while the AMBEO Smart Surround will be available in the second half of the year. The new HD 4.40BT will be available this month, and the HD 4.50BTNC will be available from February.
