Digital audio processing developer Dirac and headphone and speaker manufacturer Sudio have teamed up to create the next generation of headphones. This is the first experience of interaction between two Swedish companies. Dirac solutions already work in models of brands such as Asus, Oppo, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Harman and others.
As a result of the collaboration, the Sudio headphones of the TWS format should appear. The novelty will receive a dual-core processor responsible for working out the Dirac spatial sound algorithms, “sewn” in the device’s chipset itself and working independently of the signal source. This is the first time such a solution will appear in the Dirac portfolio.
The Dirac technology in the Sudio headphones is said to work in two directions. The Dirac Dynamic HRTF algorithms transform the stereo signal into a spatial sound with the effect of presence. At the same time, digital optimization using Dirac’s patented amplitude and pulse response corrections will improve the sound quality without the use of expensive components. It is promised that the sound will become cleaner, more balanced, and a richer and denser bass will appear.
The partners reported that the release of the TWS-headphones Sudio, supplemented with Dirac technologies, is planned for the summer of 2021. The name of the new product and its price have not yet been announced.
