BoomStick wants to enhance your wired headphones

If you feel that you aren’t getting the best sound-quality from your wired headset, BoomStick is here to help. The tiny BoomStick was designed to enhances the sound of any pair of headphones, “profoundly transforming audio for movies, music and games,” according to the company’s announcement this morning.

Customers can pre-order the BoomStick today from BoomCloud360.com and purchase in select stores starting in spring 2016.

“While TV has made huge strides in terms of quality, from black and white to 4k, audio has been going backward. In fact, our research shows that only 4 percent of consumers believe they are achieving great audio experience with their headphones,” said George Appling, co-founder of BoomCloud 360. “Consumers shouldn’t have to settle for mediocre audio. With the BoomStick, you can make your free earphones outperform expensive headphones or you can take your expensive headphones to a whole new level of enveloping sound.”

Manufactured for streaming music services, VoD entertainment, and mobile or online games, the new device will hopefully jumpstart your wired headset and breath new life into your content. The company stated, “With the BoomStick, listeners get an incredible sense of immersion and enjoy a richer overall sound on any headphone or earphone, from the basic earbuds included with mobile phones to expensive premium headphones.”

“Traditional audio engineering ends with speakers and headphones. What most people don’t realize is that our brain is part of the system,” said Alan Kraemer, CTO of BoomCloud 360. “With the BoomStick, we unlocked the power of the ear/brain system in order to present music and cinema content in an entirely new and much more emotionally impactful way.”
