For those who were waiting for these to launch, they are now available from Amazon and Apple for $299.

“Sennheiser has created the world's first intuitive, compact and mobile binaural recording headset - the AMBEO SMART HEADSET. Sennheiser' s precise integration of two Omni-directional microphones into the very compact dimensions of the AMBEO SMART HEADSET's earpieces has achieved this incredibly detailed and realistic sound. This positioning is perfect for capturing the subtle differences in timing, volume and timbre that occur as sounds from different directions reach each ear. The result is an audio experience that makes you believe you are actually there listening live. Designed for seamless integration with current Apple iOS devices it features an Apple MFi certified Lightning connector for iPhone, iPad and iPod and a built-in microphone for calls and voice control. The sound quality is enhanced by Apogee's proprietary Soft Limit and mic preamp, plus precisely tuned A/D and D/A conversion which helps create high-quality 3D sound recordings that can be enjoyed through any pair of stereo headphones. The AMBEO SMART HEADSET also incorporates a Transparent Hearing feature, an important safety feature that lets you select the amount of external sound you wish to hear while using the headset via a 3-step rocker switch. Alternatively, the earpieces can offer excellent linear sound attenuation. For the ultimate in comfort and sound quality, the ear hook design ensures low structure-borne noise and a stable in-ear fit for incredible sound while on the move.”
