Audyssey to Unveil Breakthrough Headphone Technology at 2014 Mobile World Congress

Audyssey 60 Degrees Advances the Headphone Listening Experience

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - Feb 18, 2014) - Audyssey, the leader in high-quality audio rendering, today announced Audyssey 60°. This new technology upgrades the headphone listening experience by bringing depth and spatial awareness that -- until now -- had been unavailable in mobile audio.

"With headphones it's impossible to reproduce the soundstage experience of the original recording because headphones can't deliver sound to both ears," said Chris Kyriakakis, Audyssey's founder and CTO. "As a result, significant portions of the required acoustical and psychoacoustical cues are missing. With Audyssey 60°, we restore this missing information to deliver a natural, more precise listening experience."

Music and movies are mixed in acoustically calibrated listening spaces -- rooms with two or more speakers placed in precise locations that deliver sound to both ears to create a detailed soundstage. To render this soundstage over headphones, previous methods have attempted to feed the signal from each side to the opposite ear with little success. Audyssey 60° takes a different approach, developing an immersive listening experience by sending the proper blend of acoustical and psychoacoustical cues to both ears simultaneously. This results in spatially expanded sound perception, creating the impression of a much wider soundstage.

Audyssey will be at the Mobile World Congress next week in Barcelona, Spain, meeting with phone and tablet manufacturers that have already expressed strong interest in delivering HD audio to their customers. Audyssey 60° is a software-based solution that's quickly and easily implemented in any mobile device, mobile application or personal computer.
