We all know about 3D image, which makes us feel like we are a part of the scene of an image and it simulates a reality; 3D audio has the same concept. With 3D audio, sound isn’t flat. We are able to hear sounds from the foreground, background, above us, below us, and around us. We are also able to hear passing noises, volume shifts, and noise details. 3D sound uses a binaural recording for their cool audio effect. The binaural recording takes sound and processes it in a way we can hear just as we should if were actually existing in that reality. This shouldn't be confused with surround sound, which uses multiple stereos to emulate, well, surrounding sound.
In 1881, Clément Ader invented the théâtrophone, a telephonic system. Sounds were transmitted to separate channels designated for each ear. He used the théâtrophone during a performance at the Paris Opera. This was the birth of the 3D audio.
You'll need headphones to hear the 3D audio. Welcome to NYC -- 3D audio style.
@alywoah I've never really liked 3D glasses or movies, so for sure would prefer the audio!!
Yes! That would be very cool! I think I'd prefer 3D audio over 3D image in films. It would be an awesome experience, for sure. @onesmile
I literally just bought new headphones so this was the perfect way to test it out! would be cool if some movies were released not aimed at the theatrical release, but aimed at everyone wearing headphones to experience it more like this...3d audio style
