SpherAudio is a binaural headphone technology capable of delivering a virtualized immersive sound experience, via any standard pair of headphones. This exclusive headphone technology for residential applications is available on all StormAudio processors and receivers, and delivers an unmatched level of realism.
This binaural technology renders any audio source, from Mono to 11.1, into a 3D sound experience, whilst wearing headphones, with an immersive soundscape all around you, thanks to the virtual 3D sound reproduction created.
The high profile DSP board with its specific proprietary processing and algorithm will directly interpret the audio channels from the processor decoding circuits and subsequently linked to a high quality headphone amplifier. It is available in stereo downmix output and other user defined Stereo zones.
SpherAudio Headphones is an exclusive technology by StormAudio.
What's binaural technology?
Binaural technology is based on the principle that if a sound reproduction system can generate the same sound pressures at the listener's eardrums compared to what would have been produced by a real sound source, then the listener should not be able to tell the difference between the virtual image and the real sound source.
Unfortunately though, when headphones are used for the reproduction of sound, the virtual image is often perceived as being too close to the head, and sometimes even as inside the head. This phenomenon is particularly difficult to avoid when one attempts to place the virtual image directly in front of the listener.
Binaural technology is compensating those negative effects to recreate a realistic sound image.
