Headphones that deliver 3D sound
sandiegouniontribune.com reports that San Diego start-up Ossic has developed new headphone technology that it claims delivers incredibly accurate 3D sound to users. The technology blends advanced 3D audio algorithms, anatomy sensors and head tracking technology in concert to deliver richer, more realistic audio.
“Headphones haven’t really changed a lot since the late 1950s when stereo headphones came out,” said Ossic co-founder and Chief Executive Jason Riggs. “They sound like a very close sound field next to your head. That is not how we experience sound in reality.”
Based at the EvoNexus start-up incubator in University City, Ossic thinks its technology can provide a better sound experience not only for virtual reality gamers but also for anyone watching video or listening to music using headphones.
