Read Nerd Reractor’s review of Dirac 3D Audio, Dirac Bass and Dirac Panorama Sound, which reporter Arvin Santiago was demoed at CES 2019.
“It was almost jaw-dropping to hear this panoramic sound coming from such a small speaker. It gave the audio more depth and more feeling to it and made it feel as if the sound fully engulfed me. Of course, it didn’t end there. Dirac demoed their software on a Razer smartphone. This 6-inch smartphone, with two-front facing speakers, was producing a powerful panoramic sound that will take gaming or entertainment to a whole new level. “

The OnePus 6 utiliizes two Dirac mobile audio optimization solutions. Dirac HD Sound improves the headphone audio of the OnePlus earphones while Dirac Power Sound optimizes the smartphone audio of the device's built-in speakers.
To create a truly immersive environment, an experience relies not only on the visuals but on the audio senses as well. When it comes to films and videogames, having realistic audio is key to building a believable experience. So when characters walk behind you from right to left, you can clearly hear it.
According to a recent Wall Street Journal report, Dirac Live room correction is one of two solutions that can help remedy the issue of poor sound optimization quality that’s produced by streaming music. Read more about Dirac Live room correction here.
Symphonova blends human talent with sophisticated technology – such as virtual instruments, gestural recognition, and Dirac Live room correction – to create a symphony experience that matches the brilliance and beauty of a traditional 100-person ensemble.
"The biggest story here is the addition of Dirac, from the 15- year-old Swedish company that offers room correction for high-end home theater systems as well as audio processing for mobile and automotive use." Read more about how Dirac uses room correction to optimize the sound of the new NAD AVR.
Immersive 3D audio is poised to revolutionize virtual reality and, according to a recent report by TechRadar, Dirac's helping pioneer the future of this industry. Interested in learning more about 3D audio and Dirac's role within the future of the VR/ AR industry? Check out the story here.
Wonder what it would be like to watch a movie on your laptop and experience surround sound audio that you typically only hear in movie theaters, through your headphones? This is the future that’s being made possible today thanks to sound optimization leaders such as Dirac and their 3D audio solutions.
In the years since the iPhone was launched, in 2007, smartphone manufacturers have competed primarily on the size and resolution of their screens, touting display capabilities sometimes to the exclusion of anything else. But as mobile display technology matures, manufacturers are looking to other areas to distinguish themselves, such as sound.
"You might not have ever heard of Dirac, but if you’ve used a Xiaomi, OPPO, Huawei, or OnePlus phone in recent years, chances are you’ve heard their sound optimization software in action." Read more about Dirac's suite of mobile audio and smartphone audio solutions here.
