Introducing the Sennheiser AMBEO Soundbar Mini: Elevating Spatial Audio to New Dimensions
The exceptional AMBEO Soundbar experience from the renowned German audio brand has now been condensed into a more versatile form: the Sennheiser AMBEO Soundbar Mini. Unveiling a sound quality that defies its compact size and boasts up to 7.1.4 virtualization, this latest addition to the spatial audio Soundbar lineup prepares even the cosiest of spaces for an immersive three-dimensional acoustic journey.
Immersive Audio Magic
Maximilian Voigt, Sennheiser AMBEO Soundbar Product Manager, enthuses, “Sennheiser’s AMBEO technology magically envelops users in breathtaking 3D sound, emanating from a single, unassuming source within virtually any home entertainment environment. Our smallest Soundbar offering arrives precisely at the right juncture, with dimensions and features that seamlessly integrate into any living space, be it within the living room or beyond.”
An Ingenious Miniature Marvel
Scaling down to less than half the volume of its Soundbar Plus counterpart, the Sennheiser AMBEO Soundbar Mini instantly captures the attention of audio aficionados seeking to enhance their existing living room, desktop, bedroom, or even gaming setups. Its dimensions, a mere 70 x 10 x 6.5 cm, effortlessly complement various TV or monitor arrangements, while its cutting-edge acoustics command attention. Boasting 250 watts of pristine class D amplification propelling four top-tier full-range drivers and dual four-inch subwoofers, users can anticipate the same unparalleled audio clarity, resonant bass, and crystal-clear presence that have garnered praise for its larger kin.
Tailoring the Audio Experience
The Sennheiser AMBEO Soundbar Mini offers a spectrum of audio modes designed to customize the listening experience. This includes content-specific presets, a voice enhancement feature, and a neighbor-friendly night mode. User-friendliness takes centre stage with the inclusion of an HDMI input, compatible with a wide range of eARC-enabled TVs and monitors. Seamlessly integrating with the Sennheiser Smart Control App, managing features and updates becomes effortless via your smartphone.
A Glimpse into the AMBEO World
Mirroring its larger counterparts, the 3D audio of the Sennheiser AMBEO Soundbar Mini is the fruit of collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, a pioneering force in audio research and development. Equipped with four integrated microphones, these serve a dual purpose: orchestrating AMBEO room calibration and enabling Alexa’s voice commands as the Soundbar incorporates Alexa Built-In. Users can also leverage their existing Google Assistant or Siri-enabled devices for audio casting to the Mini through Chromecast Built-In and AirPlay, respectively.
Precision through Calibration
The AMBEO|OS operating system, inherent to all AMBEO Soundbars, empowers one-touch calibration. By scanning the room and accounting for various room sizes, reflections, and textures, the surround virtualization adapts seamlessly. Additionally, the Mini supports popular codecs like Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, MPEG-H, and 360 Reality Audio, inviting the enjoyment of native spatial audio content. Its extensive support for digital music services positions the Mini as an ideal streaming companion over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The heart-pounding bass, reaching as low as 43 Hz, resonates through favourite platforms like Spotify, TIDAL, Amazon Music, and Apple Music. The integration of AMBEO|OS seamlessly into well-known content ecosystems grants the Mini the status of a Spotify Connect, TIDAL Connect, and AirPlay 2 device. Bass enthusiasts can further amplify their experience by wirelessly connecting to up to four Sennheiser AMBEO Subs (available separately).

The Sennheiser AMBEO Soundbar Mini will be available for purchase starting 1st September on Sennheiser-hearing.com and through select retailers, with an RRP of £699 / €799. Upgrade your auditory journey with this remarkable addition to the AMBEO lineup.
