Binaural sound reproduction uses a special microphone arrangement to capture sound to mimic sound at each ear and is intended for replay using headphones. Generally a bust with outer ears captures sound directionality. To reproduce the effect and spatial confusion the crosstalk between speakers must be eliminated which is why binaural sound traditionally is only practical with headphones.
The HyperSound System (HSS) can recreate an effect beyond headphones effect by directing sound to each ear. Beaming stereo content "in-the-air" from just two ultrasonic emitters (the speakers in traditional audio systems) creates a distinct and robust 3D sound image not possible with headphones or costly and complex surround sound systems. Crosstalk is eliminated when HSS is positioned properly (for example in front of a listener at a computer or TV screen). And special recordings are not necessary - - standard stereo output creates startling 3D spatial enjoyment. HyperSound 3D directed audio enhances standard stereo output to produce a robust 3D sound image to complement any video, audio, and mobile devices.
As the leader in the field of parametric non-linear acoustics for sound reproduction, Parametric Sound offers HyperSound technology to businesses and other organizations for marketing and informational uses and 3D sound to consumers for home media.
