In the 100 years since the invention of the headphone we have improved the frequency response and dynamic range; added features of accessibility and convenience – wireless connection, noise cancelling, and portability, but still headphone listening does not sound REAL.
Heavenly Sound Core Technology
SMYTH SVS an established audio virtualisation algorithm to create a headphone output that reproduces the full acoustic experience of the original loudspeakers in a real room.
“The Realiser A16 retains and builds on the the personalisation and measurement features of the earlier Realiser A8, providing unprecedented levels of realism that stamped the Realiser brand as the gold standard in headphone virtualisation for both discerning consumers and audio professionals.”
“Not only did I get an insane Dolby Atmos experience, it was so realistic that I was convinced there was a malfunction and the speakers were still on! ”
