Natus One turns any headphone into a wireless solution
The Natus One system can turn any headphones into a pair of wireless headphones, and it’s good enough for DJs.
What sets the Natus One system apart from regular Bluetooth wireless headphones is the ultra-low latency – 16ms to be exact, where the human ear can only really start to differentiate around 35ms. The system transmits professional lossless audio quality from the transmitter that plugs into your mixer, keyboard or any sound source for that matter, to the receiver which your headphones plug into. The receiver features a small headphone amplifier to ensure the best audio quality throughout.
Both the transmitter and receiver in the Natus One system are powered by Lithium-Ion batteries which boast up to 24 hours of use. The signal strength is capable of 10m however it depends on surroundings, although that being said 10m is plenty for most stage environments. The Natus One system utilizes two aerials, and it’s constantly monitoring and switching between them as a safeguard against signal drop-outs.
The Natus One system is compact and lightweight, and constructed from Series 5000 Aircraft grade aluminium, so it is certainly built to withstand the rigors of touring DJs, musicians and live performers.
Wireless certification for South Africa?
Natus Labs, the creators of the Natus One system have said that, for the time being, they are concentrating on the US and European market as worldwide wireless certification is incredibly expensive, because you have to register on a country-to-country basis. That being said, the price is great, and I think it will be a success in the local market. So hopefully South African DJs and live performers show Natus Labs enough love and we do see it being introduced in the future.
Natus One also comes with a charging dock, making storing and charging your units simple, it also comes with all the cables needed to get the system up and running.
It is currently on Kickstarter, however there have been some production units doing the rounds, and they have some test videos on the page, check it out for more details.
