RHA and audio technology company Dirac has announced an exciting collaboration to explore the integration of Dirac's latest audio algorithms into RHA headphones.

Most will be aware of Swedish sound-tweaker Dirac's ingenious room correction and audio optimisation software. The collaboration with award-winning British headphone-maker RHA signals an exciting move forward in the next generation of headphones.

Dirac for Headphones

Dirac already has a suite of headphone optimisation solutions including Dirac 3D Audio and Dirac HD Sound. Dirac 3D Audio allows headphones to achieve more convincing externalisation, a realistic sense of space, accurate acoustical characteristics of different audio objects, correct distance and location, and more. Dirac HD Sound corrects headphones' impulse and frequency response to transform distorted sound stages, feeble bass or poor clarity into a pristine, dynamic sound experience. 

RHA and Dirac

Word is that the engineering teams from both Dirac and RHA have been working closely to design bespoke versions of Dirac's digital audio solutions for RHA headphone hardware to “create new levels of immersion and realism in personal audio.”

Kyle Hutchison, RHA's Director of Product, told StereoNET:

Dirac shares our vision for the future of personal audio. This collaboration combines our design and engineering experience with Dirac's award-winning sound optimisation software and strong research background. Our shared creative outlook and commitment to the highest standards in audio technology promise to deliver a unique suite of headphone solutions.

Lars Isaksson, Dirac's GM of Headphone Audio added: 

Dirac has grown into the globally-recognised leader in digital sound optimisation that it is today through both best-in-class technology, but also successful collaborations with premium brands that share its passion for excellence. 

Thanks to the proliferation of mobile devices, we're consuming more content than ever via headphones – and this is just the beginning. Over time, we see headphones – and earbuds – evolving from a device that allows one to consume content to an always-on way to experience the world. And as this market transforms, digital audio will be an increasingly important component of this future headphone experience.

We are certainly looking forward to the results, so stay tuned for more details as we get them.
