    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    Out Of Your Head does not require a 7.1 or 5.1 DAC. Out Of Your Head takes a 2 to 8 channel source and outputs binaural 2 channel audio that sounds like up to 8 speakers in a room. So all you need is a 2 channel DAC. However, Out Of Your Head does not convert 2.0 channel audio to pseudo 5.1 or...

    Whoops! Fixed. (Copying and pasting from last time.) Thanks for pointing out the error.

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    Hi everyone, I finally got around to posting the workaround for the macOS version of Out Of Your Head when using USB DAC's. As mentioned before, there is a bug which causes cumulative timing/sync errors with USB DAC's which caused progressively worse distortion over time. Here's a link to the...

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    Hi @whazzup, I am a professional photographer and videographer "by day" and have been for the past 20 years. I do have a physics degree from UC Berkeley. I have a programmer that does most of the coding. I know enough to be dangerous, but not enough to do it myself. I am an audiophile...

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    Hi @martyp87, First, just to let everyone know, we actually have a workaround for the distortion issue with USB DAC's on macOS. I was hoping to release a new version of Out Of Your Head that integrated the fix but haven't quite finished that version. In the meantime, I will try to post the fix...

    FYI, it's been a while, but we finally have more Vesper Pads in stock. They're trickling in. Only 4 pairs of Alcantara for now. I have a bunch on order.

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    Hi @john29 Not sure if you reached out to me already or not regarding your problems with Out Of Your Head. But usually BSOD's are a result of a corrupted installation or having multiple instances of the Out Of Your Head driver when attempting to install and uninstall multiple times. It's not...

    Not that I am aware of to end users. I am a dealer and there is a pretty high minimum order quantity. (The price has also more than doubled.).

    Well, I am obviously biased, but we strive to make it sound as close as possible to the original PRIR. You might ask over on the Out Of Your Head thread. Maybe someone who has first hand experience might chime in.

    KOSS ESP-950 Thread

    I am not sure what's going on, but Koss assured me that the CSR you spoke to was misinformed and they are not selling extension cables. And they are not $20 even if they did sell them. Oh well...Maybe I should have someone try an actually order one and see what happens.

    KOSS ESP-950 Thread

    I'd be interested to know if Koss is selling the extension cable anymore to end users. I spent over 9 months trying to get extension cables from Koss and I am a Koss dealer. Because of the Massdrop 95x, they stopped selling the extensions cables separately since they needed all the stock for...

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    Wow, thanks for pointing that out. Of all the things I have tried, that's one that never occurred to me to try. I will test it out and then add it to the notes that are listed with the Out Of Your Head download link email and put it elsewhere on the website. I will try to get that added in the...

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    Hi @whazzup, We have had some reviews in various magazines/blogs, etc. Last year we had a review in the Absolute Sound. I was on the Home Theater Geeks show. There are some other reviews in various blogs sites too. You can search around for them. But for reviews, the issue isn't so much giving...

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    Hi @audiohobbit , Sorry about not responding sooner. Somehow I missed the notification of your post. But in theory, that device would work. The trick would be that you would have to use "DAW" software (Digital Audio Workstation), to route the incoming audio signals to the Out Of Your Head...
