Apple introduces Spatial Audio to Airpods Pro. Understand how it works!
Check out how Spatial Audio for AirPods Pro will work. The new sound generation system will come soon, in the next firmware. Apple introduces Spatial Audio to Airpods Pro.
During WWDC 2020 ( Apple Worldwide Developers Conference), a major firmware update for Apple’s True Wireless (TWS) headphones was presented by Apple . According to the company, Airpods Pro will have an immersion never seen in their headphones with a system called “Spatial Audio”.
Spatial Audio is nothing more than a virtual surround sound technology (or virtual multichannel), where the sound of multi-channels seen in speakers in home stereo systems is simulated through the pair of drivers of various stereo headphones. and in movie theaters. This technique follows the same line of applications as Dolby Atmos Music, 360 Reality Audio, THX Spatial Audio, among others. It involves the detection of audio sources in music (instruments, voices, special film effects ) and the separation of space for each one, thus allowing you to hear the presentation of the music, film soundtracks, or more clearly. game sounds.
In addition to the better separation of sounds, “Spatial Audio” took advantage of the Airpods’ gyroscope technology to implement a technology present in the Audeze Mobius and HyperX Cloud Orbit headsets, the Waves Nx. Just like the technology developed by Audeze, Apple software is able to track the movement of the head, with the aid of motion sensors in the phone, fixing the audio in a single point, making you perceive the sound differently when moving the face to the right or left side, for example.
It will be quite a challenge to apply this to in-ears since the sensation of spatiality is considerably less in in-ear headphones compared to circumaural headphones (headphones). Unfortunately, the only thing we can do now is to wait and wait for the update to be made available and tested by Airpods Pro users.
