SoundBeaming transmits music into your head without headphones
SoundBeaming is a new device that can transmit music into your head without the need for headphones.
With SoundBeaming you can hear audio from a variety of sources privately and without disturbing others.
And because the sound is beamed directly outside the ears, listening becomes far more sensory and natural.
In fact, you can even experience sounds in spatial 3D without needing complicated surround speaker setups or being limited to the stereo sound of headphones.
“Noveto® SoundBeaming™ places ultrasonic waves just outside your ears, creating a 3D sensory listening experience with privacy and without disturbing others – no speakers or headphones.”
The science behind SoundBeaming
SoundBeaming works using ultrasonic waves and beamforming to place sound just outside the ears.
The waves are generated using Noveto-developed proprietary DSP algorithms and pushed into the air via a custom-designed transducer array. From the inside it may look like a small speaker, but you won’t hear anything coming out.
A 3D sensing module built into the hardware locates and tracks the position of your ears in real time, at which point the ultrasonic waves converge into small pockets of sound just outside the ears.
Here the sound can be heard again as normal acoustic waves without disturbing others.
Move your head in any direction and the two sound pockets will magically follow. Spatial 3D capability makes it possible to experience sounds placed anywhere in space regardless of head movement.
