Sennheiser, the German company most associated with producing high fidelity headphones, has announced that it will develop audio accessories for Magic Leap’s newly unveiled augmented reality platform. Sennheiser will be part of Magic Leap’s “Works with Magic Leap” program, that exists to ensure that certified accessories will work with their augmented reality headset. Magic Leap’s augmented reality headset is in it’s early days of release, thus the number of available apps is not particularly compelling. This will hopefully improve over time as developer’s get access to the platform and begin to exploit its features.
- Sennheiser is joining Magic Leap’s program that ensures that accessories and tools works with its headsets as expected.
- Sennheiser’s speakers presently deliver audio through its headset’s built-in speakers or via headphones connected to the headphone jack.
- Magic Leap has created an augmented reality (AR) headset for developers and it is touted as early days for the product.
“The headphone and audio gear company announced today that it’s partnering with Magic Leap to develop spacial audio accessories for the AR headset’s platform.”
