Guests attending this year's Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance can experience the product of our collaborative efforts with audio industry leader Sennheiser: an exclusive one-off sound system inside a Karma Revero GT prototype.
Sennheiser's AMBEO recording and multiplexing system positions multi-channel loudspeakers throughout the Karma Revero GT’s interior cabin, including a subwoofer to provide breathtaking immersive sound from any seating position. To make this experience complete, the vehicle’s headrests have also been integrated into the loudspeaker concept. According to Dr. Véronique Larcher, Director AMBEO Immersive Audio at Sennheiser, their “upmix” algorithm technology achieves an immersive 3D effect, even without specific 3D audio sources. Users can adjust settings to their preference, and the system also has a function for screening background noise out of phone calls for clear and precise voice capture.
“At Karma Automotive we pride ourselves in creating immersive driving experiences through global relationships and technology partners such as Sennheiser,” states John Maloney, Chief Revenue Officer of Karma Automotive.
Our collaboration with Sennheiser is an exploration of technology integration through our Open Platform Strategy. This not only provides companies an automotive partner for their latest innovations, but also gives our customers a chance to experience state-of-the-art technologies in our vehicles.
The 2020 Karma Revero GT with Sennheiser AMBEO audio can first be experienced as a technology showcase on Peter Hay Hill at Pebble Beach during Monterey Car Week from August 15 to 18.
