This partnership consolidates Sennheiser's presence and thought leadership in spatial audio as it continues to develop innovative audio tools for spatial audio visionaries and content creators.

Sennheiser is pleased to announce it has partnered with spatial computing leader Magic Leap. Headquartered in Florida, Magic Leap is developing the next computing platform that blends the digital and physical world. They have recently launched their first spatial computing system, 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.
