Embrace Audio Lab unveiled the working prototype of XPUMP, Smart Audio Booster that turns headphones and speakers into a home theater

TAIPEI, Taiwan — May 31, 2016

Embrace Audio Lab, the world’s leading audio digital signal processing company, today unveiled its fully functional working prototype of XPUMP, a smart audio booster that can real-timely transform any normal stereo speakers or headphones into a premium and portable home theater.

The gum-sized XPUMP is embedded with XROUND TM processing technology, a patented, exclusive audio digital signal processing algorithm, which can dynamically detect and analyze every detail in stereo audio sources and reconstructs them to optimal presentation.

The innovative and sleek gadget is built with features to upgrade your listening experience to the next level:

◆Real-time Detail Boosting

XPUMP is capable of real-timely boosting the detail in every soundtrack to give people vicarious pleasure that they could only experience in a live concert, show, a theater, or a recording studio. The powerful audio algorithm is running on the dedicated dual core processor at the clock speed of 55.3 MHz, which automatically proceed and transform the melody every microsecond.

◆Dynamic Equalizer

In the past, people needed to manually select their equalizer setting for favorite songs. Now XPUMP is able to dynamically adjust the equalizer setting according to the audio detail and sound field, constantly bringing the best audio representation to users.

◆Spherical Sound Field Expansion

With XPUMP, users could feel the sound is coming from outside the speakers or a headphone and being embraced by the sound field. The angle of sound field expansion can be up to 200% of regular stereo.

◆High Quality Soundstage

XPUMP would unleash the power, the depth, and the richness of sound. Any stereo audio source can be presented with high resolution of layers for users to identify different instruments, voices, vocal parts, and natural sounds.

Designed by a group of audiophiles, XPUMP is easy to use and supports all kinds of headphones and stereo speakers. XPUMP would be available for presale in the second half 2016 through a Kickstarter campaign and would ship worldwide by the end of this year.
