EaroundTM  is the new amazing audio format to watch movies on the go.
This incredible format brings the listener directly into the movie.
All you need is to find a movie with the Earound logo, and use your own headphones.

THE PROJECT

The EaroundTM project was created in 2013 by Matteo Maranzana.
He developed an innovative mixing process and a new audio format (patent pending), in collaboration with Roberto Fumagalli, engineer at the Energy Department of Politecnico di Milano, and Fabio Antonacci, engineer at the Sound and Music Engineering Department of Politecnico di Como.

This new audio format provides an immersive sound experience using a simple stereo file. You don’t need to buy apps, decoders or special headphones. Just plug your headphones into your mobile device, and enjoy your movies as if in an advanced multichannel system. Using a mix specially tailored to each film, Earound transports the listener into the action.

FAQ

WHAT KIND OF HEADPHONE SHOULD I USE?

You can use any kind of headphone. You don’t need to buy anything just use the headphone you already own.

CAN I WATCH MOVIES IN THIS FORMAT ON TV?

You can ear in Earound with everything that has a headphone output: TV, smartphone, tablet, blu-ray and dvd player, laptop…

CAN I LISTEN IN EAROUND ALSO FROM COMPUTER OR TV SPEAKERS?

You can listen to a movie with the Around format from any kind of speaker, but you will lose the Earound effect.

WHAT KIND OF FORMAT EAROUND IS: 5.1 7.1… ECC?

Earound is something completely new, you can’t compare it to something like a 5.1 because it brings the listener into the movie’s scene and not in the center of a multichannel system. Everything could happen everywhere around the listener without the limit of a fixed number of channels.

WHY IT’S BETTER TO LISTEN WITH THIS AUDIO FORMAT?

It’s not worst or better…. when you listen to a movie, the stereo that you ear is something like a compression of the original audio format that is not stereo but 5.1 (or more). It is an automatic process that the player does if you are listening in stereo.

Earound is a format tailored for headphones and different for every movie, it is not something automatic made from a processor. And being an immersive sound format It is more like the original soundtrack.

Furthermore listening with headphone is usually tiring, because it is not natural. Earound is not like this, it can be tiring just if you choose an uncomfortable headphone, otherwise you can listen for a long time without any problem.

IS THE EAROUND FORMAT CREATED AUTOMATICALLY FROM THE ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK?

Absolutely no! What you listen is a mix tailored for headphones for a specific movie. Every movie will have it’s own Earound mix.

CAN I ALSO USE EARPHONES?

You can use any kind of headphones and earphones.
The better will be their quality the best will be the sound. Every person listen in a different way, so, if you can, try different kind of head/earphones and choose the one fits you better.
