In Today’s Mobile World, Binaural Audio Is Rising.
Everyone has a smartphone. Everyone owns at least two pairs of headphones and everyone is a creator. We are consuming and creating more content on our mobile devices than ever and the amount of content that is consumed on headphones rises every year. We now see a great opportunity for binaural audio working on mobile devices! But that leads to a big question, is there an app for that?
First, binaural Audio is audio captured identically to the way we as humans naturally localize and hear sound. Hard to write about, but easy to hear. Listen to the video below with headphones on and hear the difference:
Pretty amazing right?
What’s even more amazing is that Binaural audio has been around since the late 1800’s. We’ve outlined the history of binaural audio on this blog before, tracking the format as it’s risen and fallen in popularity amongst music professionals, film makers and storytellers for over a century.
But this is changing now that binaural audio has come to mobile.
So, how does a binaural audio app work?
You don’t need a special app to consume binaural audio. Any headphones will let you experience it, take our YouTube channel for example. Every video on this channel was captured in binaural 3D Audio using the Hooke Verse, yet all you need is a pair of headphones to feel like you’re there.
But there’s more to binaural audio than just hearing it. That’s why we created the Hooke Audio Binaural Audio Apps for Android and iOS.
