The idea of “8D Audio” has been drifting through the online world for the last few months. If you’ve experienced it–and it’s a really a headphone things–you’ll know that it’s a pretty immersive thing with the music coming at you from all directions. It’s a new twist on binaural recording, which has been with us for decades.
A WhatsApp message that went with some of the earliest tracks read “It will be the first time that you will listen to that song with your brain and not with your ears. You will feel the music from outside and not from the headphones. Feel the effects of this new technology.”
What does that mean? Grab some headphones and listen to this.
