What Is Sennheiser CapTune (Now Known As Sennheiser Smart Control App)?

Sennheiser describes Smart Control App (CapTune) as “Multi-Source Ability for Unlimited Musical Pleasure.” But what the heck does that mean?!

Smart Control App is a Sennheiser Music application for iPhone and Android. It allows you to change your music settings so that you can customize sound levels and settings for music on your smartphone or mobile device. It currently comes with 3 free months of Tidal music service.

Read it straight out of the horse's mouth at Sennheiser's website.

What’s more, Sennheiser Smart Control App works seamlessly with DLNA-enabled devices* and integrates TIDAL so you can create your own multi-source playlists.

*DLNA is an integrated plug and play system that works between just about every media device except for the ones designed by Apple. Sorry iFolks.

This app will work with Sennheiser wireless bluetooth headsets, such as the Sennheiser MB Pro1 and Pro2 as well as the Sennheiser MB660.
