Digizoid Zo Personal Subwoofer: Amp Up the Bass

While there a million ways to take your audio with you, most of them involve rather meek, tinny sound, thanks to the physical limitations of most earbuds and small speaker tech.

The guys at digiZoid hope to overcome that problem with their newly-announced zo personal subwoofer system. The portable box connects between your media player and headphones or speakers to create an enhanced bass experience. It’s really a misnomer to call this thing a subwoofer though, as it’s really some sort of digital audio processor, not an actual loudspeaker.

While I’m really not exactly sure how it works, digiZoid claims their SmartVector sound contouring system dynamically adjusts audio equalization on a constant basis, providing deeper low-end than you’ve ever heard through your headphones. I’ll leave it to the smart guys to explain:

“SmartVector sound contouring works to counterbalance the loss in sound pressure level due to the speaker’s and the ear’s inefficiencies. This is achieved by performing dynamic signal gain adjustment in relation to frequency (or what we call dynamic contouring).”

“Knowing the human ear does not perceive all frequencies of sound with equal loudness, and that people have different listening preferences, we’ve applied isophonic science to solve these problems.”

While that all sounds cool to me, I question whether or not digital audio processing equipment like this can really improve the frequency range of your physical listening devices. Guess there’s only one way to find out. You can buy the digiZoid zo over on their website for $99 (USD).
