Another major highlight on the stand is Sennheiser’s immersive AMBEO 3D technology solutions, with a prototype of an AMBEO Sports Microphone Array for capturing 360° sound on display.

“We see broadcast and content production as a dynamic industry engaging a diverse range of customers with different requirements; these range from enhancing audio for mobile phone recording through to multi-channel audio solutions for professional applications and productions”, says Adam Karolewski  Product Manager, Pro Audio Solutions for Sennheiser Australia & New Zealand, “We are proud to be able to offer a comprehensive range of innovative and leading edge audio solutions to cater for all these needs.”

Sennheiser’s AMBEO Technology

In support of the AMBEO Sports Microphone Array, special guest Renato Pellegrini, AMBEO product manager for Sennheiser globally, will also be at the show and delivering a session on ‘Object-Audio Capture Systems for Sports Broadcasting’.  You will see him in Room B on Wednesday July 17th at 2:30pm. To complete the AMBEO set up Sennheiser will also be showcasing the AMBEO VR Microphone and the Neuman KU 100 binaural head.


The NDH 20 is the first headphone produced by Neumann, it combines a newly developed Neumann transducer with a comfortable, closed-back design that includes soft memory foam ear pads. Featuring a balanced, linear sound image, fine resolution and excellent isolation, the headphone is ideal for monitoring, editing and mixing even in loud environments. The NDH 20 is foldable for easy transport, and is delivered with two detachable cables, one coiled, one straight.


The Neumann NDH 20 is a closed-back studio monitoring headphone with a flat frequency response and natural, detailed sound.

Also, on the stand from Neumann, will be the KH 80 DSP nearfield monitor and the new KH 750 DSP subwoofer. Both models are an ideal choice for the confined spaces of broadcast studios. A DSP engine optimises their output, enabling critical monitoring with reference class sound despite their compact size. In addition, both the KH 80 DSP nearfield monitor and the KH 750 DSP subwoofer can be controlled with the Neumann.Control app for iPad.


The new KH 750 DSP is a particularly compact subwoofer for broadcast, music and post production studios
