With Dimension Headphones Dolby Dives Into Consumer Products
If you’ve ever stepped foot inside of a movie theater you’ve likely seen or heard of the name Dolby. The company has an incredibly established legacy of helping to create some of the most powerful and impactful audiovisual experience in theater and home entertainment. Dolby Laboratories, with its top-class engineering team, is responsible for creating some of the most world renowned breakthroughs in in audio and video across so many different entertainment and communications channels—things like Dolby Atmos, Vision, Cinema, Voice, and Audio. And we’ve only been able to experience those mind-bending technologies and experiences thanks to the company’s collaborative efforts with artists, brands, and other manufacturers in the consumer tech space.
That’s to say that Dolby, despite plenty of business reasons why they should, has never really wanted to venture into the world of creating its own products. But it looks like that’s about to change.
On Wednesday, the company unveiled the Dolby Dimension headphones—their first-ever consumer-facing product that promises to provide a personal (and mobile) entertainment experience that’s unlike any we’ve ever experienced.
