New Dirac digital audio solution wins SoundGuys CES 2020 Editors Choice Award!

January 14, 2020


Fresh off CES 2020, we’re proud to announce that SoundGuys, the independent online publication for consumer audio users, has recognized the new Dirac app with its CES 2020 Editors Choice Award.

The SoundGuys “Best of CES” awards program, of which the Editors Choice Award is a part, recognizes products that demonstrate innovation, challenge the status quo, and have a positive impact on consumers.

The award-winning Dirac app reveals even the most subtle beats, tones and sounds that’re typically lost in headphones and brings the boosted content outside the listener’s head. It creates a higher definition and more spacious listening experience over any headphones, regardless of quality or price-point. 

In reviewing the new Dirac app, SoundGuys editor Lily Katz wrote, “The Dirac app makes a marked difference in sound quality without rendering audio reproduction palpably artificial…it remarkably alters the experience of listening to vocals, which are more clearly separated from the accompanying beats and synth sounds throughout the song, … and sub-bass reproduction is rendered much more accurate, making the [headphones] more versatile.” 

At Dirac, our goal was to develop an app that is game-changing and easy to use. Listeners open the Dirac app icon, connect their headphones, and select it from our extensive list of compatible headphones. The app then applies the corresponding algorithms to level-up headphone performance, and listeners can toggle Dirac on and off with a finger tap to instantly hear the difference Dirac makes.

“SoundGuys is one of the consumer market’s leading audio publications and its annual CES awards are among the market’s most prestigious,” says Dirac co-founder and CEO Dr. Mathias Johansson. “Winning this award validates the years of R&D that have brought this app to life, and we look forward to continuing its roll-out in 2020.”

Dirac is already in talks with several of the world’s largest smartphone makers and streaming services to incorporate the Dirac into their solutions. Stay tuned for announcements later this quarter.

Thanks to SoundGuys for this amazing recognition. Dirac remains committed to inventing the future of sound, and we take great satisfaction in having our work recognized by not only consumers but the publications they trust the most.
