The Immersion of Big Sound

Sound in the cinema is just awesome: it’s big and immersive, and you feel like you’re really in the film. Along with digital projection, it provides a full-on media experience instead of just something to see and hear.

You can replicate this type of audio at home to some extent with 5.1 digital surround sound (or for the most discerning audiophiles, 7.1 digital surround sound). However, you can’t exactly get anywhere close to that if you’re listening to audio on a pair of headphones. Yes, there are high quality headphones out there; they boost the bass, make tracks distinct, and make the sound crisper, but the surround sound just isn’t there. This is the problem that the creators of Neoh sought to solve: making enveloping surround sound portable.

Surround Your Head

What makes Neoh headphones different from, say, a pair of Beats by Dre, Bose Quiet Comfort, or Audio Technica headphones is their ability to replicate that consuming, immersive, cinema-quality audio. Neoh actually senses your movement on nine axes so that the sound moves with you. Using its proprietary app, Neoh creates a full 360-degree audio environment, and this makes everything sound like it’s happening around you.

Aside from the 3D sound quality, Neoh headphones have a laundry list of other impressive features. The audio frequency response ranges from 20Hz to 20kHz. The battery lasts at least 18 hours. They’re lightweight at just 270g. And, there is a built-in mic and smart remote.

Make Everything Sound Bigger…If It’s Compatible

Neoh has the potential to make all media consumption sound better. Movies, of course, are tops on the list. Gaming, too, will be improved, and the built-in mic could make Neoh an ideal headset for this use. VR, emerging as it may be, could really be brought to life with 3D audio. And music — well, you know what lengths die-hard music fans will go to in order to get their tunes to sound good. Neoh could be great for all of these.

However, at present, there seem to be some serious compatibility issues, most of which have to do with DRM and Neoh’s need to process sound through its own app. So if you want to use Neoh to watch a movie through iTunes, you’re out of luck: DRM prevents the audio from being processed through Neoh’s software. The headphones are also not currently compatible with Android, Xbox, PS4, Linux, or Occulus Rift. That excludes a lot of users! Yes, you can still hear sound through Neoh if you use them with these platforms, but you definitely would not be getting the full effect.

Kickstarted

Look: there are a lot of headphones out there, but Neoh clearly provides something new. The public responded well to its Kickstarter campaign, giving $120,000 USD on an $80,000 goal. And these are not inexpensive headphones: the early bird price of $200 USD gave way to a regular Kickstarter price of $249; this amount will surely go up once they go on sale to the general public.

The first batch of Neoh headphones should ship in May 2015. If the compatibility issues get resolved, these could become the headphones of choice for gamers, cinephiles, and anyone who values high quality audio. As things stand now, though, the potential for these headphones seems stunted. Hopefully, 3D Sound Labs (the developers behind Neoh) can fix these problems.
