Earlier in December, Stages introduced the two revolutionary augmented listening products which are intended to combine the enhanced listening experience of audiophile sound quality & active noise cancellation, with an unprecedented degree of ambient sound personalization.
"We are excited to provide consumers from all over the world with the opportunity to experience what we have spent years developing with the Hero and Sidekick," said Benjamin Benattar, Stages' co-founder and CEO. "This is an important initial step for Stages, as we seek to put a listening and hearing experience that has never been possible before into as many peoples' hands as possible, enabling them to see and hear what the future of audio and sound control should be. Having seen firsthand the many expressions of astonishment as people at CES used our products, and heard their comments of amazement and encouragement, I can't wait for people everywhere to share in the experience. It will be awesome."
The Hero is an advanced audiophile-quality, over-the-ear noise canceling pair of headphones that can operate either wired or wirelessly. The Sidekick is a rechargeable desktop product that offers the same sound personalization functionality as the Hero, but allows the use of any preferred wired or wireless headphones, earbuds or hearable you already own.
Both products combine exceptional audio quality and noise reduction with Stages patented technology featuring Ambient+ TM and Selective Sound TM. Ambient+ allows users to specify the direction from which they hear sound, whether from a single direction or an adjustable arc. Selective Sound allows users to set keyword, speech, or voice profile detection criteria to admit sound. The result? Users hear ambient sound on their own terms – being able to specify not only from where sound is heard, but to determine from what source they want to hear that sound, based on user-determined keywords or speaker profiles. Simply put, users remain connected to the world around them while being fully immersed in audio for the first time.
