The development team at SHIVR based in San Francisco, California have created a new affordable pair of noise cancelling headphones in the form of the SHIVR 3D. Marketed as the “world’s first headphones to eliminate dizziness” during longer sessions the headphones are equipped with advanced noise cancellation and patented ANC technology.
Equipped with a built-in gyroscope, aptX high fidelity sound, ambient sound mode and connectivity using the latest Bluetooth 5.0 technology. The SHIVR noise cancelling headphones are now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges available from $119. Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about their design and technology.
“SHIVR’s own advanced algorithm can effectively enhances audio surround sound and sense of space, allowing the listener to accurately sense sound from different sources. Traditional two-channel audio only delivers sound from the left and right side, but in real life we can identify sounds from various directions, distances and the surrounding environment. Real sounds mix as they bounce off walls, floors, and ceilings, and gives us a feel of room size and the materials within it. SHIVR’s algorithm deconstructs the sounds from difference sources and rebuilds them in an environment simulator, to determine directions, distances and reflected surface data of the sound.”
For more details and full specifications jump over to the official Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, which is already raised over $110,000 with still 41 days remaining.
