This tiny tracking unit promises to provide 3D audio to any pair of headphones. Meet 3D Sound One Module by 3D Sound Labs.
3D Sound One Module Makes Your Headphones 3D
Remember that Kickstarter campaign that promised the same thing? They are called Waves Nx. Although, they seem to have a promising product, their tracker is merely a prototype unless they can get $200,000 funded by August 1. Until then, there’s 3D Sound Module, which is available now for $99.
The 3D Sound Module works by attaching to your headphones – along the headband seems best. The module is loaded with nine axis motion sensors and set up with Bluetooth 4.0 technology to pair with your smart device.
The axis motion sensors monitor your head’s movement to locate sound in relation to your ears. This spatial sound recreation imitates how our ears perceive sound in reality. What we hear is affected by distance, sound direction, the type of location, sound barriers, and more from the audio source. Standard headphones more or less shoot audio directly to your ears. Not very 3D at all. Sound Labs hopes to change that. Their module can work with music, gaming, and even speakers to create more of a theater like atmosphere.
It is advised to use the “One Player” iOS app in order to enjoy spatial sound with all your content. It is also said that the module can work with the following video files:DivX, AVI, FLV, MOV, WMV, MPG, MPEG, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MP4, M4V, mpv, TS, MKV, DV, ASF, 3GP, M2P, m2ts, m2v, GXF, wma. It can also be used with the following audio files: M4A, MP3, RM, WMA.
The sound module is said to run for at least 18 hours. A micro USB charging cord is provided, along with a one-year warranty when your purchase the 3D Sound Module from 3D Sound Labs.
