The Swedish digital audio company Dirac and the multinational chipset maker BES have announced a partnership to pre-integrate the Dirac Virtuo and Dirac Opteo software onto BES chipsets to be used by headphone manufacturers. T
The partnership enables the two companies to offer packaged Dirac-BES solutions that allow manufacturers to more quickly and efficiently equip headphones with premium-quality sound. boAt, Monoprice, and Sudio are the first headphone brands to leverage Dirac-enabled BES chipsets in their devices.
“Dirac is known for pioneering the industry’s most advanced digital signal processing solutions that are relied upon by many of the world’s blue chip technology brands across a range of markets,” comments Nilo Casimiro, product lead at Dirac.
“However, increasingly key to our growth strategy are partnerships with leading chipset designers like BES to integrate our solutions directly onto their hardware – delivering tremendous value for our shared OEM customers. This partnership with BES represents an important step forward in our mission to deliver superior sound for everyone.”
Dirac Virtuo employs a high-resolution binaural room impulse response technology to restore speaker crosstalk and correct the stereo soundstage. With Dirac Virtuo, sound seemingly comes from a pair of premium stereo speakers in front of the listener, rather than from inside their head to create a more accurate stereo soundstage than regular headphones can deliver.
