When you use headphones, your head and ears are not affecting the sounds you hear as they normally would in a live situation or while listening to loudspeakers. Consequently, sounds are localized inside the listener’s head.
But with IDA, your personal audio profile or head-related transfer function (HRTF) – which is created by taking a simple 3-D scan of your head and ears – is used to restore the natural 3-D soundscene to any pair of headphones. The result is vastly improved audio that adds a whole new level of realism to movies, video games, and virtual reality experiences.
Your personal audio profile is created by scanning the unique features of your head and ears. For decades, taking time-consuming acoustical measurements in an anechoic chamber was the only way to obtain an individualized profile. IDA has revolutionized the process, using cutting-edge 3-D simulation technology that quickly and easily generates your custom profile for outstanding headphone audio accuracy.
An IDA personal audio profile changes the way headphone listeners experience music, movies, and FPS and VR games that contain 3-D soundscapes. The localization clarity exceeds everything that is available on the market today and there’s no need for large and expensive speaker installations. All it takes is a simple 3-D scan of your head and ears.
