Zoom F8 and AMBEO VR Mic

The Sennheiser Ambeo VR Mic is the new standard in 3D audio, paired with the Zoom F8 recorder you can take this extraordinary microphone to any location allowing to capture your surrounds with amazing accuracy. The Ambeo microphone allows you to record fully immersive sound providing your listener with a whole new experience. Split into four XLR outs the four independent microphone capsules capture audio across the full human hearing range (20Hz - 20kHz) and feature a Max SPL of 130 dB so this outstanding mic can withstand more than enough pressure to create the perfect immersive environment for human consumption.

The Zoom F8 is an 8-channel multi-track field recorder made for serious filmmakers and sound designers. With 8-input/10-track recording, super low-noise preamps, and support for 24-bit/192 kHz audio, the F8 captures the highest-quality audio. Outfitted with Zoom's finest mic preamps to date, the F8 features an extremely low noise floor (−127 dBu EIN) and high gain (up to 75 dB), with +4 dB line inputs. The F8’s time code is state-of-the-art. It utilises a Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) that generates time code at 0.2 ppm accuracy, enabling rock-solid syncing of audio and video.

The elegantly designed AMBEO VR Mic has been developed in cooperation with VR content producers and fine-tuned through an extensive creators’ program with participants from across the audio and VR communities. The mic caters exactly to the needs of VR content creators, letting you capture the experience and spirit of any location enabling the listener to be immersed as if they were there.
