Waves Nx Head Tracker for Headphones

Small Bluetooth device augmenting the realism of Nx software for immersive 3D audio
MFR# USW379-700C-274

Product Description

The Nx Head Tracker for Headphones is a small Bluetooth device that latches onto your headphones and tracks your head movements in order to augment the immersive 3D audio experience created by Nx technology.

Use the Nx Head Tracker along with the Nx 3D audio apps to experience the music, movies and games you love in 3D audio – on your computer, tablet or mobile device, using any set of headphones.

Use the Nx Head Tracker along with the Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin in order to recreate on headphones the ideal spatial acoustics of a high-end room, improving your headphone mixing and recording experience.

Why Head Tracking Matters

When you hear sounds in the real world, your physical head movements help your brain create a sense of three-dimensional audio depth. When your head moves, your brain remembers where the sound used to be and where it is now, combines this with its knowledge that the head (and not the external source) has moved, and uses this information to locate the external source and construct a three-dimensional “audio scene”.

However, when you listen to sound on headphones, the audio scene constantly shifts with your head, and your experience of three-dimensional auditory space is gone. By tracking your head movements and adjusting the audio to the direction and orientation of your head, the Nx Head Tracker (combined with Nx software) helps reconstruct the realistic three-dimensional audio experience of sounds coming at you from external sources in the real world.

Nx Head Tracker, Webcam – or the Best of Both Worlds?

There are several ways you can track your head movements to enhance the Nx experience: you can use the Nx Head Tracker device; you can use your computer’s camera; or, if you are using the Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin, you can use both methods simultaneously, enjoying the best of both worlds (we call this option “sensor fusion” – see more details in the table below). Using the Nx Head Tracker has several advantages over using your webcam. Here are some of the main ones:

The Nx Head Tracker is faster and more accurate, providing a much smoother tracking experience than a computer camera.With a webcam, you are limited to using Nx on a stationary device, for example a desktop computer, and you must be facing the camera at all times. With the Nx Head Tracker you can track your head movements while you are moving around, for example using a mobile device.A webcam can track your head movements in ±30 degrees only. The Nx Head Tracker can track them in full 360 degrees.With a webcam, only one user can use Nx software at a time; with the Nx Head Tracker, several users (each with his or her own Nx Head Tracker device) can experience Nx simultaneously on the same audio source.

Features:

  • Augments the realism of Nx software for immersive 3D audio
  • Tracks your head movements in 360 degrees (full sphere)
  • Use it with the Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin to mix and monitor on headphones
  • Use it with the Nx 3D audio apps to experience 3D audio on any headphones
  • Requires Bluetooth 4.0 BLE
  • 30-day money back guarantee

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
