Sudio has announced the launch of the E2, a pair of wireless earphones the Swedish brand says is taking sound quality to new heights with Dirac’s Virtuo spatial audio solution.
What Dirac’s Virtuo does is employ a “high-resolution binaural room impulse technology”, which sounds rather fancy but produces the effect of sound coming from a “pair of premium stereo speakers in front of you” than playing inside your head. Very fancy indeed.
Also supported by the Sudio E2 is hybrid active noise cancellation that utilises two microphones – one outside and one inside the earpiece – to provide the most thorough form of noise cancellation.
These earbuds have been conceived with online meetings and video phone calls in mind, the Sudio E2’s VividVoice technology uses dual-beamforming microphones to isolate your voice and filter out the rest of the noise, making it easier to be heard in busy office and public environments.
