What will recorded music sound like in 2050?

October 27, 2013  |   Posted by :   |   Home   |   0 Comment

La Grou thinks that music will be mixed to create full 3D immersion over headphones long before 2050. Microphone and headphone designers and audio software engineers will develop 360-degree sound systems. Speakers play a much smaller role in sound reproduction in La Grou’s future gazing. He described headphone sound as “spherical audio,” where the listener […]

Upon closer inspection, however, locomotion is less straightforward. In particular, the ankle — the crucial juncture between the […]
