Waves Nx is a ground breaking audio technology that finally bridges the gap between speakers and headphones. With the Waves Nx App and the Waves Nx Head Tracker device you can use any headphones and listen to all of your content in truly immersive 3D sound, everywhere you go!

The perception of spatial sound in the real world is a complex phenomenon. It combines the interactions between the acoustic sound waves and the room or space, the interaction with our head and ears, the reaction of our middle and inner ear and the audio nerve, and finally our brain’s cognition and interpretation of the acoustic scene. The perception of sound over headphones is a completely different experience. If we take listening to stereo headphones vs. listening to speakers as our example, there are several major differences:

Waves Nx uses head tracking and scientific models of the way our brains and ears perceive audio to create an amazing sounding fully immersive 3D audio experience that turns any pair of headphones into a high quality Speaker Setup, it not only models the speakers, it models the entire room!

• With Waves Nx any pair of headphones will deliver the same listening experience a GREAT speaker system does.
• Get the ideal acoustics of a recording studio– inside your headphones!
• Spotify Support - stream music directly from Spotify using Spotify Premium service with Waves Nx – enjoy a wealth of content in immersive 3D audio using Waves Nx.
• Live Concerts and Music all sound more authentic with Waves Nx! Experience all of your favorite content the way it was meant to be heard!
• Reduces the inconvenience caused by listening through headphones over extended periods of time.

The Waves Nx Head Tracker can also be used with the Waves Nx applications for Windows and Mac and even with the Waves Nx – Virtual Mix Room plug-in for professional audio workstations, check www.waves.com/nx for more information!

Currently Waves Nx App only supports playing back local media files, check back soon for updates adding support to popular streaming services!

What headphones?

Buy the tracker! It's like taking your headphones off. Brings the music back out of isolation, and into the world!
I have been using in my pro audio set up, and I love it.

great app! movie app support will be game changer!

I have this app and the head tracker! it's fantastic! I highly recommend the windows and Mac version as that can also work without the head tracker with just a camera. Movies come alive with Waves Nx

Too bad it’s EOL.

This is a very good spatializer. You must measure your head and enter the distances in the settings for best results. Too bad the devs have ended development of this app.
