SHIVR footsteps powerful 3D audio headphones into the sound space
SHIVR will start the worldwide shipment of the long-awaited 3D Audio headphones on August 15th, after a successful and fully funded Kickstarter campaign. 6000 Units are in the first batch of international deliveries and more are on the way.
Sound affects our emotions and our body, yet very little was done commercially to bring powerful, accurate sound into life, outside sound labs or professional studios and unlike anything else, sound is capable of creating powerful reactions in our bodies, from throwing us into cold sweat triggered by a snake’s warning hiss or make us smile when we hear a song from a summer vacation, back in 1999.
SHIVR, a young company, with a solid team of sound engineers, is changing the way we recognize and process sound. The headphones from SHIVR were created to deliver an audio experience that is powerful and immersive.
The APF Technology (Acoustic Power Field) is packed with innovative features that offers more sound performance while keeping the listener comfortable during long SHIVR sessions.
The 3D Surround is created by an advanced algorithm that reinvents the physics of sound by being the first music headset with a built-in gyroscope. It that allows the listener to sense sound from different sources and gives a unique sense of space. It allows an effective audio surround submersion for a faultless sound experience. It makes the listener to become one with the sound and hear it as an accurate replica of sound in real life: distance, direction and volume.
It supports aptX/aptX Low Latency Audio Technology that reduces wireless delay and improves end-to-end speed of the audio transmission. The result is high quality, rich, and synchronized audio. One extra feature that SHIVR has put an emphasis on is the high comfort during long listening sessions. The headphones have a seamless fit and are easy adjustable to a different size. This will allow high concertation for studying or working, gaming or simply relaxing or meditating. Combined, all the features from SHIVR, are a renewed way of experiencing sound, while opening up new ways to work, learn, travel, exercise, and play.
Sound is one of the more interesting singularities because most of us don’t understand it or know what it actually is. We can’t actually hear it, but rather vibrate at a certain frequency, within the harmonic spectrum. Yet we live our deepest emotions through sound.
Traditionally, small companies have struggled to compete with the giants of the industry. Yet, when SHIVR launched their Kickstarter campaign, thousands of audio fans, professional game players and those that understand sound have fiercely supported the product, showing that anyone with a strong vision for a better product and experience can succeed. SHIVR’s headphones are an elegant, practical and revolutionary addition to the audio space, while also solving the imperfection of real-life sound that other headphones still carry with them.
