Product overview 

Let's start going into depth with this soundbar. You will get a complete idea of how this product works and is it good enough or not.

What's the soundbar like physically

I will be very honest here; I liked the looks of the soundbar but not the dimension. The looks are quite good with some stylish aspects. And it comes in black color, which is always an excellent addition to any classic setup.

However, the soundbar to me felt too huge. It's just too large for a soundbar, and it will surely not suit a smaller room or setup. Luckily, I have a larger room size with several other large speakers on the side so it doesn't look that bad.

While the build quality is quite good and sturdy, it's quite heavy at the same time. So, once you have placed it somewhere, it's hard to switch it up.

It's not that of a big deal when you have a large room or a large setup. Because you still get the excellent looks coming from, which is a crucial physical aspect of soundbars. Also, you will never have to worry about the durability of the build quality.

Features and rate performances 

It's time to go through the features and see how they rate in each category. If nothing has convinced you till now, this surely will tell you how good the soundbar is.

  • Sound quality 

What can I say about the sound quality? It's just phenomenal. I couldn't get over it for a while because I didn't expect it to be this good. The natural rich tonal quality this brings out from the audio is very impressive. I don't think anyone will ever have a problem with the sound quality this soundbar can bring to you.

You get excellent surround sound capability with support from codecs like DOLBY Atmos, DOLBY digital, and DTS. As for the bass, it's quite good, but adding a subwoofer to the mix will just make things unreal.

Rating: 4.5/5

  • Connectivity 

Full points for the connectivity features on the soundbar. You get all kinds of connections you can have in a soundbar. It doesn't lack any port or any source of connectivity whatsoever. Whether it's Bluetooth or Optical cable or RCA or even AUX, you don't miss out on anything.

And to give a great surround experience, you also get HDMI ARC support in the soundbar. Altogether, there is not a single question you can raise about connectivity with this soundbar.

Rating: 5/5

  • Performance 

Is watching movies your priority? Or maybe you are a music lover. Either way, you will be satisfied with what you get from this soundbar. It has got decent bass to give you the complete feel of the music.

And with the detailed and enriched sound quality, you can never go wrong with the movies. Its dynamic nature on the sound is what makes it a great choice for your home theater system.

Rating: 4.5/5

Product alternatives

If you don't find this suitable for your needs, check out the following alternative options to this one.

  • Samsung HW – Q950A

There is no need to convince you of the quality you get in a Samsung product. This one is another excellent soundbar from their soundbar range. However, it lacks bass power and an AUX cable connectivity compared to the Sennheiser Ambeo soundbar.

  • Bowers & Wilkins Formation Bar

Here is another excellent alternative to the Sennheiser ambeo with similar sound quality. It also comes with a unique design and good build quality. Something questionable about this one is the lack of bass and connectivity options.

Wrap up 

Overall, getting the Sennheiser ambeo soundbar is an excellent choice if you are looking for good surround sound quality. However, if you have a small room or small setup then I suggest looking for other options. While there is nothing wrong with the sound quality and performance, the outer construction isn't the most suitable one.
