Dirac has announced that its spatial audio solution is now available for direct integration into the digital signal processors (DSP) of Bluetooth wireless headphones.
By enabling spatial audio natively in wireless headphones, Dirac is ensuring headphone manufacturers continue to differentiate their offerings in a highly competitive market, and consumers can enjoy immersive sound from standard stereo content regardless of the playback device or media player — for elevated music listening, gaming, and movie watching experiences.
Dirac’s spatial audio solution for wireless headphones comes with two key features: spatial audio and speaker optimization. The spatial audio feature is enabled by Dirac’s patented Dynamic HRTF technology, creating an immersive stereo listening experience from standard stereo content similar to what is achievable with a home theater system, without requiring specifically encoded spatial audio content.
The speaker optimization feature is delivered by Dirac’s patented magnitude response correction and impulse response correction.
The solution is enabled through Dirac’s tuning system and team of tuning experts to ensure manufacturers achieve their signature sound with high accuracy and consistency across product models in reduced time. Headphone manufacturers can integrate the Dirac solution into chipsets from leading Bluetooth DSP vendors, such as Mediatek, BES, and Qualcomm.
“We’ve already had two leading companies – Klipsch and RHA – integrate Dirac into soon-to-be-announced headphones, and we’re in active talks with several more,” says Peter Cedmer, director of product management, headphones, Dirac. “As Dirac becomes standard in more headphones, OEMs will have more opportunity to competitively differentiate from one another and deliver their customer-base an increasingly impressive sound experience.”
