The best thing about the cinematic sound experience is the feeling of total immersion. By replicating acoustic properties of a professional listening environment, Dirac Sensaround® brings you an immersive and more natural HiFi and cinema sound experience  on the go without requiring specially coded audio content. 



  • Gentle externalization of sound from headphones, “out-side of your head”
  • Turns headphone listening into a relaxing natural HiFi experience
  •  Compatible with any headp-hone and source
  • Not a tiresome sound effect; provides a more pleasing over-all headphone experience
  • Creates a natural sound image


Natural sound stage


Music is usually mixed with loudspeakers in mind, not headphones. As a result, headphone listening is often plagued by a distorted soundstage—instruments and voices may seem incorrectly placed and trapped inside your head, causing  an unnatural listening experience that can result in listener fatigue.

Dirac Sensaround® takes a different approach by using advanced algorithms to reproduce a sound field similar to that of a professional listening room. Using a pair of ordinary headphones, listeners can enjoy their favorite media in a way that seems to spread instruments, voices and objects out into space, enveloping the listener exactly as the artist intended.


Replication instead
of simulation


At Dirac, we study the way sound moves and is reflected by the environment as well as how human ears perceive sound in space in order to innovate beyond the limitations of conventional surround sound effects. 

By carefully measuring and modeling a preferred listening space, Dirac Sensaround® reproduces key acoustic properties associated with high fidelity stereo/home cinema listening within the headphones themselves.

You will notice that the result sounds vastly different from so called virtual surround techniques that color the sound and take the edge away from the recording. Dirac Sensaround® is not a sound effect to grow tired of, it is a headphone soundfield optimization that you will not want to be without once you have tried it.


Dirac puts you in the
centre of the experience


 Whether you are watching movies, listening to music or playing games, Dirac Sensaround® puts you in the centre of the realistic experience. No fuzzy sound, fake spatial effects or poorly placed sound objects. Just transparent and natural sound as in a well-designed cinema, studio or any other professionally engineered space.
