The slide control – used to set the recording level by default – could be switched through the app to perform different functions, including firing up the iPhone Camera app and the Voice Memos app.

Conclusion

I guess the one real weakness of the Ambeo is that it’s only for iPhone/iPad users. Indeed, head office sent me down an iPhone to use for reviewing the Ambeo. I’d like to see an Android version as well. I would have thought there’s no reason why it wouldn’t work very nearly as well with analogue connections.

But if you have an iPhone and want to get into a very special kind of sound, whether for video or just audio, the Sennheiser Ambeo Smart Headset is a brilliant way into it.
