Sennheiser/Apogee AMBEO IEM/Earphone Binaural Recording Headset review

Recommended Posts

You get two things with the AMBEO - each worth at least $300 USD (IMHO): A very decent IEM, and a really good binaural recording system (using your Apple i-device) with microphones that capture hi-fi sound.  This review has only a few sentences about the binaural recording - the bulk of the review concerns the IEM/earphones.

Here's a video (audio only) that I made of the HomePod in the Apple store.  It opens as I'm recording with cupped hands behind the earpiece mics, to screen out some of the customer/store noise, then I back off from there and remove the earphones from my ears so the sound is no longer binaural (i.e. the soundstage collapses).

Unfortunately because of the store's background noise, I had to be closer to the speaker than what I would have liked, and thus much of the power and projection of the speaker's sound isn't captured well here.
