”Sennheiser’s Dolby Atmos soundbar remains the high-end benchmark.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 award-winner.

Immersive 5.1.4 sound

Packed into its stylish case are no fewer than 13 independent drivers. Five tweeters, six woofers and two top firing speakers are controlled by a sophisticated processor, to deliver room-filling sound. AMBEO technology delivers three further equaliser modes, letting you experiment with the type of soundfield.

Tuned to your room
The supplied calibration microphone means you get exactly the right acoustic response for your room. Plug the mic in and at the press of a button it measures your room’s acoustics and adjusts the output to suit, giving you the best sound possible in any space.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatible
Up-firing speakers make this Sennheiser soundbar compatible with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X are more usually found in high-end cinemas and deliver immersive sound through height speakers in the ceiling. Rather than having to drill holes in your ceiling at home, the AMBEO’s up-firing speakers produce the same type of 3D sound, with effects appearing to come from above. Listen to a helicopter or aircraft or a thunderstorm and you’ll swear the sound is coming from above your head!

Powerful bass
For the full impact of action movies, powerful bass is a must. The AMBEO delivers with its built-in subwoofer array. Reaching right down to 30Hz, the AMBEO reproduces impressive levels of depth, without the need for a separate subwoofer. If you’ve got a larger room or simply want to truly feel the bass, then simply connect your choice of separate active subwoofer via the sub output.

Google Chromecast, UPnP and Bluetooth for streaming entertainment
With Chromecast built-in and support for UPnP (Universal Plug n’ Play), the AMBEO is ready to stream your music library, music streaming services and podcasts. Connect via wi-fi or Ethernet cable and make the AMBEO the hub of your wireless music streaming. Alternatively, the AMBEO is also compatible with Bluetooth. This high quality v4.2 system is perfect for quick pairing with your smartphone or tablet and, thanks to NFC, all it takes to get going is a quick tap.

Fully connected to be the hub of your system
Three HDMI inputs and one output make this soundbar ideal for connecting all your home entertainment sources. Plug in your games console, TV set-top box and Blu-ray/DVD player and hear them all sounding their very best through the soundbar. The HDMI output uses eARC for enhanced features from this audio return channel connection. For none-HDMI sources, there’s optical and RCA analogue inputs on hand.

Seamless control via app
Download the Smart Control App (Available for Apple iOS and Android) and you can tailor the soundbar from the comfort of your chair. Adjust a multitude of acoustic settings for the perfect sound. Alternatively, the AMBEO is also supplied with a handy IR remote control.

Free the true potential of your home cinema sound, with the immersive Sennheiser AMBEO soundbar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has awesome sound. I have owned this sound bar for a couple of weeks now. It is mounted on the ball below the TV away from my dogs. It certainly enhances the viewing experience as compared to the poor LG internal speakers. This was an expensive purchase but I don’t regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound with or without AMBEO I love the bar, best thing to replace my 5.1 AV system and won't go back again. 3D sound is amazing when using Ambeo feature (ambeo turned on). Bluetooth etc work really well too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Emperor's new clothes! I bought this just over a week ago, along with an LG OLED 55CX. The TV is exceptionally good but, so far, have been underwhelmed by the Ambeo. It does have some good points. It's capable of producing a reasonable quality stereo sound. It reproduces dialogue very well, to the extent that it's possible to hear every word in detail. That is quite an achievement for any soundbar, in my opinion. Calibration was simple and completed successfully. Unfortunately the rest of the story is not so good. When watching any output from the TV, the Ambeo switches off after 20 minutes. Fortunately I was able to turn off this auto-standby "feature" in the Sennheiser App. I'm sure it's designed to only go into standby if there's no signal but that's not the way it worked. I say I was "fortunately" able to do this in the App because, shortly after, it updated itself. Since then I have been unable to communicate with the soundbar and no amount of resetting/reinstalling has resolved this. (Google Home still connects to it but only allows volume adjustment.) Now for the sound .... So far, using 5.1 sources, I would describe it as 2.0. Maybe 2.1 if I'm being generous. I have pass-through and E-Arc set on the TV. Admittedly my room configuration is far from ideal but the TV's own speakers produce more surround effect than the Ambeo. I know there are adjustments on the App ... if only it worked! I'm going to keep trying but it's not looking positive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NIce sound, for tv and music Bought to replace a Samsung q90 and very pleased with it. Solidly built and larger than the q90 but not as intrusive as I thought it might be. The sound is remarkably immersive and balanced. I am not missing the rear speakers of the q90 and the overall effect is much better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Faulty unit We purchased Ambeo two weeks ago with the goal of replacing our existing 5.1 wired setup with something simpler - a soundbar. We did quite a bit of research (online websites and YouTube reviews) and settled for what is currently commonly considered the best of the best. As expected, Ambeo was massive and very good build quality. That stand on the attached photo is just a few centimetres short of a 65inch TV that hangs above it. The set-up through Google Home app of the unit is not straightforward and could be quite fiddly. It took multiple attempts to establish the connection between the iPhone with Google Home and Ameo. It has somehow worked out in the end, after about 30 minutes. Tuning/calibration with the attached microphone was quick and easy. For 5-minute bursts that Ambeo actually worked the sound coming out of it was amazing. All the positive reviews about it are not wrong. However, our unit would begin to produce a high pitched whine/noise after 5-7 minutes of playing music. We tried a few things (reconnecting cables, resetting settings and doing the connectivity again - more fiddling with apps...), but nothing helped, the noise was always back and the last time, after the reset, it appeared before we even finished the calibration. At that stage, we went back online to see if other people had similar issues. If you are thinking of purchasing Ambeo, I recommend you go and check in that direction. Apparently (and none of the reviews we have seen mention it), there is a whole cascade of issues with that soundbar. And we consider ourselves lucky that the issue with our unit has surfaced immediately. RicherSounds offered a replacement, but we no longer wanted Ambeo and asked if we could have Sonos Arc instead. Sonos Arc arrived last Friday. Out of the box, Sonos Arc was easier to set-up (just one App to use). The packaging of Sonos (this is our first) looked and felt more premium. The sound is great, but not as good as Ambeo was on the same songs that we were able to compare. I will post Arc feedback in a few weeks time under the Sonos Arc product.
