How our brain
decodes sound

The brain uses three major QUES in order to decode sound signals and to perceive them in space and movement:
  • ITD (Interaural Time Differences) - the small difference in milliseconds in which a sound enters one ear before the other.
  • ILD (Interaural Level Differences) - the small difference in volume in which a sound reaches both ears.
  • HRTF - the unconscious unnoticed head movements also help our brain understand the depth of the sound source and its location and motion (if the source is mobile).
Stereo audio allows for localization to the left and right ears upon playback. That’s actually the only instance in which we DON’T hear naturally, since in life, a listener can localize sound sources in front of them, behind them, above and below. Stereo does not factor in the natural ear spacing or “head shadow” of the head and ears. These things happen naturally as a person listens, generating their own ITDs and ILDs. Stereo recording is not capable of capturing this, thus restricted to only Left and Right.

How Sphereo works

Our technology encodes 3D vector sound into 2 audio channels (stereo), in a way the brain decodes as natural spherical sound, enabling control of 3D audio location and motion patterns. The encoding works with any existing file formats (single/batch), offline and online (real-time). We’re the only solution to date to convey true 3D sound over plain stereo, with no needed software or hardware on the creation or on the playback side.
  • Streamed using any service
  • Does not interfere with the video
  • Does not affect video-audio sync
  • Does not affect DRM

Video technology adoption
left audio behind

Despite major advancements in video technology (from SD to 4K/HDR), our headphones listening experience is still limited to only a two-channel stereo (left and right). The majority of us, who don’t own a home theatre setup or other surround-enabled devices, are only confined to the old stereo format, may it be via our internet browser, mobile phone, bluetooth connectivity and the analog headphone jack. But in the meantime:

  • Headphone usage is growing, with over 300 million sold annually.

  • More content is consumed on mobile than ever before.

  • People are listening with headphones to more than just music, they watch films and TV series and play games.

As George Lucas once said “the music and sound are 50% of the experience in a movie” and we have set our hearts and minds to supply everyone with the hassle-free theatrical experience the content creators and listeners deserve. Truthfully, if our good old stereo format can now convey real 3D sound, why not simply use it this way?
