AES06SF: Surround Sound Mixing Made Easy


Beyerdynamic has introduced Headzone, a portable surround sound mixing system, at AES 2006. They say that Headzone is ideal for a variety of applications including broadcast, post-production, recording studios, mobile recording and video game sound design.
Paul Froula, Pro Audio Business Manager told us, “Headzone’s portability offers an affordable and flexible alternative for audio engineers to mix surround sound. No longer is a live truck or recording studio required to create a professional-grade 5.1 surround recording.�


Utilizing current DSP technology, Beyer say that Headzone provides superior headphone-based 5.1 surround sound reproduction. It also offers a unique patented ultrasonic-headtracking system, which locates the orientation of the listener’s head with respect to the source material and adjusts the audio accordingly. Headzone allows complete freedom of movement. Beyer tell us that based on the set-up commonly seen in a mixing studio, an engineer recording with Headzone can move around while the source material remains fixed in position.
Headzone also offers an advanced room simulation program, which allows the users to create an ideal auditory space within which to monitor the surround audio and, therefore, provide the optimal ‘sweet spot’. As a result of the system’s portability, audio engineers have the capability to monitor in their ideal studio anyplace, anywhere.
