Sennheiser and Neumann to Showcase New Microphones, Wireless and Monitoring Technology at NAB

At the NAB 2019 show, Sennheiser will introduce the SK 6212 mini-bodypack transmitter from the Digital 6000 series, new XSW-D series entry-level camera kits and a prototype of the AMBEO sports microphone. Neumann will spotlight its new KH 750 DSP subwoofer and the Neumann NDH 20 monitoring headphones.

Sennheiser’s AMBEO Sports Microphone Array captures 360-degree sound for sports broadcasting. Also to be shown is the AMBEO Soundbar, an all-in-one 5.1.4 soundbar. Requiring no additional speakers or subwoofer, it will enable sports broadcast mixers to critically monitor how their immersive content would sound on a real-world device.

Neumann has expanded its product portfolio to also include studio headphones. The new NDH 20 combines a newly developed Neumann transducer with a comfortable, closed-back design that includes soft memory foam ear pads.

Featuring a balanced, linear sound image, fine resolution and excellent isolation, the headphone is ideal for monitoring, editing and mixing even in loud environments. The NDH 20 is foldable for easy transport, and is delivered with two detachable cables, one coiled and one straight.

Neumann will offer NAB guests the opportunity to listen to the ultra-compact KH 80 DSP nearfield monitor and the new KH 750 DSP subwoofer. Both models are for the confined spaces of broadcast studios.

A DSP engine optimizes their output, enabling critical monitoring with reference class sound despite their compact size. In addition, both the KH 80 DSP nearfield monitor and the KH 750 DSP subwoofer can be controlled with the Neumann.Control app for iPad.
