Sabinetek, a maker of wireless acoustic products for immersive entertainment, is marketing its new flagship product, SOLO, which it is billing as the world’s first high-quality wireless karaoke headset. Compatible with iOS, Android and Windows and with smart TVs, it is controllable by hand-clapping and will delete the voice portion of a soundtrack to allow wannabe soloists to sing along with the accompaniment in real time. The headset, available in black and silver, also allows easy management of phone calls received in the midst of a singing session. Its technology embeds a dual-core professional-grade DSP audio processing chip which aids in adaptive noise suppression as well as in clear music playback.
The company also captured a CES Innovations award in Las Vegas last month for its 360-degree-capable audio recording system, the Sabinetek SMIC. The company says it “captures true 360 audio for use with VR and AR devices.”
Billed as a portable 3D recording studio, this 3D panoramic microphone receives binaural recordings that complete the immersive experience of VR- and AR-powered content, according to the company.
The Sabinetek SMIC weighs in at under four pounds, lighter than standard pro-grade mics, and the company’s specifications state that it will deliver 48K, 16-bit recording quality and sensitivity up 38dB±3dB@1kHz. It will function for eight hours on a two-hour charge, and offers standby time of 30-plus days, says Sabinetek.
