Drawing on Sennheiser’s decades of research and innovation, AMBEO 2-Channel Spatial Audio provides an immersive experience far beyond what standard two-channel systems normally deliver. Compatible with any stereo system, it unleashes immersive audio for a larger audience than ever previously possible.

Unlock Immersive Mixes
More and more content is being produced in immersive formats like Dolby Atmos® or MPEG-H Audio or standard surround formats, while the majority of users still only experience stereo. AMBEO 2-Channel Spatial Audio translates an original immersive or surround mix into two channels of audio that deliver a spatial experience far beyond stereo. It transforms any stereo speakers or headphones into an enhanced spatial experience, no end-user upgrades required.
No Additional Mix
AMBEO 2-Channel Spatial Audio is not another mix. Instead, it is created from open, industry-standard deliverables, like ADM, IAB, or discrete multichannel PCM. The renderer easily fits into standard encoding pipelines. It outputs a standard two-channel audio file that can be delivered as a drop-in replacement for stereo.
Mixers in Control
While AMBEO 2-Channel Spatial Audio is not a separate mix, creators still have granular control over spatialization. Mixers can define the amount of AMBEO processing for each stem separately. Re-recording mixers can dial-in the desired amount of processing, from standard stereo mixdown up to full AMBEO effect and anywhere in-between. Dialog can be left untouched, while maximum spatialization can be applied to ambience and sound effects.
