Sennhesier has turned its attention to immersive audio with the launch of Ambeo.
Ambeo is a 3D audio capture and reproduction technology that, like Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, aims to envelop the listener in a surround sound experience.
Little else is known about it, but Sennheiser believes it could potentially affect how we listen to sound in music, gaming and cinema, with efforts being made to introduce this technology into future products and applications.
Having released the fantastic Z3 and replaced it with the Z3+, Sony has waved a dismissive hand towards convention and called its latest flagship the Z5.
Surprisingly, there hasn't been much progress, with the Z5 offering little in the way of the innovation we'd expect from Sony.
Picture quality and design arguably haven't progressed since the Z3. And while its battery life and camera impress, the Z5 feels like a re-run rather than a confident step forward. A good effort but not Sony's best.
