Never before has personalized sound become so accessible for casual listeners with the advent of SoundID offering users a true sound experience that appeals to everyone, now included with 1MORE’s small but mighty noise cancelling, aptX Adaptive colorful buds.
SAN DIEGO, CA – September 21, 2021 – 1MORE, a globally distributed premium consumer audio company, today joined forces with the team at Sonarworks by including their smart algorithm SoundID software with the new $79 ColorBuds 2 that finds the ideal personal sound profile for each individual so that they can enjoy the best personalized sound. Sonarworks has long been synonymous with calibrated sound, revered and used by sound engineers and producers across the globe. Their mission, set out by Mr. Helmuts Bems (CEO and Co-founder of Sonarworks), “is to make reliable studio sound available to music, film and game creators globally“. As a result, Sonarworks have become a world leader in digital speaker and headphone calibration with over 100,000 sound recording studios relying on their technology. Regarding the collaboration with the 1MORE ColorBuds 2, Mr Bems went on to say that, “we are excited that SoundID is now enabled in the newest 1MORE earbuds to highlight the best that 1MORE headphones can deliver to you as a listener“. Sometimes it’s not always possible to satisfy the audiophiles of the world leading to many disgruntled users looking towards a software-based equalizer to fine-tune each frequency subset to their own taste. However, SoundID is much more than an equaliser. After Sonarworks conducted a 39,000 survey of listeners, they concluded that people like something else in the sound. “…There are differences to our preferences, our hearing is different and it changes with age… now finally there is a technology that accounts for all of that with SoundID as it’s the first machine learning approach to sound for consumers“, said Mr. Bems.
1MORE – equally known for its high-quality sound tuned by their in-house four-time Grammy-winning sound engineer Luca Bignardi – knows that despite their best efforts and expertise in tuning the perfect sound for each of their headphones, sound is still very personal & subjective. “Every listener has a different way to perceive the sound they’re listening to“, said Mr. Bignardi when speaking about the difficulties of tuning headphones to satisfy every single user. “I always had to refine the way I re-shape the sounds… every device has a different attitude to reproducing the sounds even if they are equalized to sound in the same way“. He added that, “as we moved over to Bluetooth devices, I had to adapt my tuning style“. Size, comfort, color & material choices are all fairly subjective from person to person, but none more so than the actual sound itself when it comes to the headphone industry. Accounting for every single user’s taste is a tricky job, even for the most astute of sound engineers. Since 2012 a new tool emerged on the market for musical production that has seen its popularity rise by being used by thousands of recording studios and music producers. It was Reference by Sonarworks that made it easy to compensate imperfections in a room and in speakers, but also in headphones too. Mr. Bignardi said that, “now every producer or musician can listen to music under the same conditions and this is the reason why we enclose the same technology in our headphones with SoundID“. Luca went on to say that, “SoundID is doing more than simply compensating the device… Through a short AB test that everyone can do, everybody can now get a personalized profile that completely adapts to his or her own taste… this technology makes something what was never possible before“. It’s that unique personalization that’s often missed by most headphones on the market meaning that you may be missing out on the depth and details of an audio track. Today though, personalized sound at the touch of your fingertips is now a real possibility with SoundID and the 1MORE ColorBuds 2.
It’s often said that a sequel is never as good as the original. Be as it may, the ColorBuds 2 are an exception to the rule as 1MORE brings to the table more than just personalized sound with the inclusion of Active Noise Cancellation provided by 1MORE’s very own proprietary QuietMax Technology to block out everything but your music.
