HEAR360 is on a mission to make the digital world sound absolutely incredible. We do this by providing hardware and software solutions to today's cinematic VR filmmakers, allowing them to deliver theatrical quality, head-trackable sound easily and affordably. The first product we are bringing to market it the 8ball omni-binaural microphone which allows for directional recording that places the viewer in a field of 3D sound.
The underlying technology H360 Core creates a "height" dimension to audio, giving the ability to place sound above, below, around, and even inside a listener's head. When combined with omni-binaural recording the results are holographic, immediately immersing the viewer into the virtual world.
A world-class team.
