Forward-thinking spatial audio developers expand capabilities of versatile consumer-focused software package
20th November 2023, Southampton, United Kingdom - Audioscenic, the UK based spatial computing audio market leader, are proud to announce that Amphi – their best-in-class software package that integrates 3D audio beamforming technology with a wide range of consumer computing devices – now supports headphone processing. The update adds HRTF virtualisation for multichannel surround content giving users the ability to consume spatial audio through headphones and making the Audioscenic Amphi suite an even more versatile solution for spatial audio experiences.
“This software update is a much-needed addition to our suite, as PC ecosystem partners were requesting the ability to provide spatial audio reproduction through headphones and also to add customisation for their customers,” said Audioscenic CTO Marcos Simón. “Now, Audioscenic can offer a complete audio solution for all their customers including both speaker and headphone audio processing. Now, when consumers switch to headphones instead of speaker audio, they will still be able to consume spatial sound.”
Support for the Amphi Suite in Windows was announced early in June 2023 at the Computex trade show. At that time, Audioscenic announced the first implementation of their technology as a Windows APO that contained the Audioscenic 3D audio beamforming technology for spatial audio reproduction through speakers. With the newly added headphone components, users can enjoy spatial audio reproduction over headphones of multichannel surround audio and also personalise headphone EQ to a given headphone model.

The Audioscenic team is also working on future releases of the Amphi headphone technology, including the ability to perform dynamic head-tracking to provide an even more enhanced sound immersion. "With or without headphones, we're creating a completely customizable spatial audio experience that is accessible to anyone without needing to heavily invest in audio hardware." said David Monteith, Audioscenic CEO. "Audioscenic's mission as a company is to make the everyday spatial audio experience a fact of life -- integrating into anywhere in the house where you might hear audio and benefit from that immersion, be it with gaming, movies, or music listening."
