Has anyone tried one of these boxes? Sounds almost too good to be true, but it's really a compelling idea. What if you could have this flexibility while listening through headphones, and test out a mix through different virtual monitors and rooms?
For someone like me that does a lot of early morning or late evening DAW work, it would certainly be ideal. I spend a lot of time with headphones on, but it seems like it's widely regarded as a bad idea to mix with headphones. And even still, you're only getting part of the picture with a them on, as opposed to how it would sound through different kinds of speakers, rooms, etc.
However the price pulls out the skeptic in me. $99? How good could it be?
Looking at various reviews and recording forums, it seems like it's a worthwhile device, especially since it's so cheap. I might have to pick one up when I pick up my new(er) Stiletto next week.
That's looks like a very exciting product. I'm in the same position as you, Jeff, I mix through headphones, and often late at night. Since I'm only working on demo material only, a monitor setup doesn't seem all that worthwhile. I'm wondering how exactly this thing works. I've read that there are headphones that can feed some of the left signal to the right and vice versa, to simulate the sound as you would perceive it when listening through speakers. It wouldn't surprise me if this thing did something similar, but what else, EQ? Soft reverb to simulate the room? Couldn't this be done entirely in software without requiring any gadget?
I would love to read a review by somebody with extensive knowledge and experience
