Sennheiser's Ambeo VR Microphone

UPDATE: the microphone will be called Ambeo.

Although there are now many cameras for capturing 360 videos, there are not as many options for capturing 360 audio. One such device is Sennheiser's upcoming VR Microphone:


Unlike stereo microphones, the VR microphone will record audio from four directions. As the viewer rotates the 360-degree video, the audio will change in sync with the video. The VR microphone will be available Q4 2016. Sennheiser is also developing a dedicated VR mic for GoPro.

In addition to the VR microphone, Sennheiser is launching its first weatherproof action lavalier microphone.
