Sennheiser to work with Magic Leap to develop spatial audio applications
Extending its involvement with VR/AR applications, Sennheiser has partnered with spatial computing firm Magic Leap and joined the 'Works with Magic Leap' certification program. This partnership will see Sennheiser continue to develop audio tools for spatial audio developers and content creators.

Headquartered in Florida, Magic Leap is developing a computing platform that blends the digital and physical world. It recently launched its first spatial computing system called Magic Leap One Creator Edition.

"Our spatial computing platform is uniquely designed in how it blends the digital world seamlessly and respectfully with the physical world – the spatial soundfield is an integral part of the spatial sensory experience. This is why we partnered with Sennheiser, a recognized innovator in audio solutions, to help explore and enhance our spatial audio accessory solutions," said Omar Khan, chief product officer at Magic Leap.

To support the needs of Magic Leap’s most progressive developers and creators who consider audio as being crucial to the emotional impact of their work, Sennheiser will also join the 'Works with Magic Leap' certification program. The certification program allows selected partners to provide tools and accessories specifically designed to work with the Magic Leap One device.

"As we enter a new era of spatial computing, and the technology gains traction with leading content creators, we are thrilled to bring our Ambeo spatial audio expertise to help drive forward this emerging field, while working closely with the creative community," said Veronique Larcher, co-director Ambeo at Sennheiser.
