Later in the week, Black Friday will mark the start of the holiday shopping period, but if you buy for a Magic Leap One owner, you can buy their perfect gift now.
On Monday, Sennheiser September met the announcement of its collaboration with Magic Leap with the release of Ambeo AR One, the first spatial headphones certified for use with Magic Leap One.
Unlike Sennheizer soundproofing headphones, the Ambeo AR One is designed for "transparent hearing" to allow the user's environment to exist alongside the digital broadcast sound experience.
In addition, Sennheiser has published a companion app for the headphones that allows users to create and visualize sound images. Available through the Magic Leap World menu on Magic Leap One, the Ambeo Augmented Audio app can capture sounds that users discover in their physical environment. These sounds can then be converted into loops that users can mix with stock loop banks. Sennheiser ordered British songwriter, music producer and beatbox SK Shlomo (pictured above) to create one of the audio sound banks for the app.
"For an artist like me who love to create spontaneously with loops, they see the sounds instantly transformed into vibrant, vibrant 3D visualizations that you can download and bounce around the space you are with, with full binaural sound is just mind blowing, "Shlomo said in the first announcement from Sennheiser.
Using Magic Leaps Soundfield Audio features, the app visualizes sounds in the user's environment with spheres and swirls that users can interact with using the controller to move and place the virtual objects. Users can also record their interactions to share on YouTube or Twitter. ” width=”480″ height=”480″ style=”max-width:532px;height:auto;”/>
