Better sound quality from phones, tablets & more. iWowU

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, July 19, 2012

Better sound quality from phones, tablets and more.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Listening to music or watching movies on a phone or tablet typically sounds nothing like the audio you can get on home theatre systems.   But the folks at SRS Labs have been working to change that, first with the iWow 3D dongle for iOS devices and now with the iWow-U that works with any device with a headphone jack.   Retail marketing director Larry Johnson…

“It gives you three dimensional audio programming out of your iPhone, iPod, iPad, Kindle, Android device, virtually anything with a headphone jack.  By three dimensional audio, it gives you sound field expansion, bass enhancement, basically uses a number of different types of digital trickery to manipulate the audio, gives you a boost in the sound programming.”

The iWowU has a rechargeable battery and sells for about 70 dollars.    You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
