The sound is targeting your ears as you are in a sound bubble, at the same time people around you can hear absolutely nothing, and you hear as if a person talks straight in your ear, this is great. A very good idea allowing to practice social distancing.

In the context of current health crisis, we had to stop the use of headphones, which were used to provide access to educational content in a significant number of spaces in the museum. Akoustic Arts technology has allowed us to reopen our exhibition rooms and provide content, while retaining the advantages of headphones: confidentiality, but without its flaws: physical contact.

Frequently asked questions

Sound quality

With a computing capacity of 2.4 billion operations per second, we have integrated patented digital signal processing modules to make the sound as clear and loud as possible with zero background noise.

Multiple functions

Noisy space? Turn boost mode on. Quiet space? Activate the presence detector that stops audio broadcast when a person leaves the targeted area. For voice content, activate the voice mode to enhance speech intelligibility.

Easy to install

As a compact 260 x 260 x 32 mm and 1 kg slim square body with Vesa 100, Directional Speaker B fits perfectly even the most complex integration challenges. Choose your audio source (either 3.5mm balanced or unbalanced jack, or optical cable) then play your connected audio. In case you are planning to use multiple speakers - link them up using the optical output instead of using plenty of cables.
