Check this out and tell me:
Them Israelis ain't playing, boy.
Interesting. But how dafug does it work w/ omnidirectional (bass) sounds? I can get that it's fine for aiming directional sound @ ears. Some of the time. Unless flies / ladybirds / moths / vape / rain / beards / iguanas / dolphins / bats / bearded dolphins make you accidentally deaf via interference. >____> But still needing a subwoofer seems to negate the whole point? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Haven't heard anything moar about it, except vid. Maybe they'll have some big vibro chair to accompany the tech? :D Guess it'll still reach those kickstarter $$$ (I don't know if there's any kickstarter $ !)
sounds like stereo field/phasing hell. it's tracking ears in 'realtime' and any any amount of that is has to result in SOME latency (even if 10-20ms.) which already makes it less-than-ideal for real producing.
as for implications, it'd probably be hard to make any accurate statements without knowing how they sound. my guess would be it's utter dogshit for actual mixing/listening for a true spectrum response, but a cool concept for alternative listening in specific scenarios?
its likely another gimmick that's gonna die out or be very niche, unless laptop companies pick it up.
but hey, on the other hand you could get a bunch more producers playing trap beats in your local starbucks without headphones. yay.
This looks really cool. Like the other guys are saying I don't know how it will play out in actual mixing situations, especially for bass music. It still seems like headphones would have the upper hand for producing in public, at night, etc. This seems like it's trying to emulate headphones without actually being headphones. For producing I don't think I'd want to hear the sound of a coffee shop around me, I'd just want to hear the music. But I think this is a really cool concept and I can't wait to see technologies like this emerge and become better and better as we move further into the future. I'd love to see this be merged with 3D audio so that you wouldn't have to stay in one specific spot or use headphones to hear the sound move around you.
Ah, that's an interesting one! Thanks, never heard of this. Apparently, they send ultrasonic waves to the ears, which act as demodulators.
That is not new at all, the invention they bring is eartracking and adaptive direction of the ultrasonic waves plus the respective hardware.
The only system with directional bass frequencies that ever existed was the one concieved by a brand that no more exists, the french one Haliaetus :
In these Haliateus systems which are not anymore sold, the bass frequencies were guided by acoustic nozzles like rockets ones, making them unidirectional.
One can imagine what a such nozzles technology could give with ultra low frequencies rotary subwoofers :

Brown note generators, nice
I just wonder what does it sound like. Is it usable for music production or mastering? I guess it still depends on the quality of the speakers.
"You can't hear this, no one can hear this" Shakes his head no.
Yeah actually, I can.
Perhaps you need one of these:
Sorry this is what I meant to post:
