Magic Leap brings Sennheiser AMBEO to AR headsets

US-based augmented reality (AR) developer Magic Leap is partnering with Sennheiser to improve the audio quality of its Magic Leap One headsets.

Sennheiser AMBEO’s spatial audio capabilities will enhance the overall sense of immersion when interacting with virtual objects and content through the Magic Leap One.

The collaboration has come about through the company’s "Works with Magic Leap" certification program.

"As we enter a new era of spatial computing, and the technology gains traction with leading content creators, we are thrilled to bring our AMBEO spatial audio expertise to help drive forward this emerging field, while working closely with the creative community," said Veronique Larcher, co-director at AMBEO, in a statement on the company’s website.

"The spatial soundfield is an integral part of the spatial sensory experience," added Omar Khan, chief product officer at Magic Leap. "This is why we partnered with Sennheiser, a recognised innovator in audio solutions, to help explore and enhance our spatial audio accessory solutions."

While not yet confirmed, it is thought that AMBEO spatial audio will be added to the next version of the Magic Leap One.
