tomorrows headset – what’s needed beyond a pair of headphones, a mic and a button?

Posted on Posted in 2015 Workgroup Topic Proposals

With the advent of digital interfaces for headset accessories, what kind of functionality are end-users wanting in their next gen headset/accessories?

Let’s keep the conversation away from the “how” and “over what interface” and think bigger to what end users are really looking for in future systems. Sensor, lights, multichannel, floating cameras that take selfies! etc.

 

One thought on “tomorrows headset – what’s needed beyond a pair of headphones, a mic and a button?

  1. I feel like we need to lead the industry to sensible solutions for consumers/pro-sumers/professionals lest we end up making 768-ksps, Ultra retina reference audio solutions within the next 5 years. It seems like the pursuit of box specs has lead audio to a dark place similar to camera mega pixels.

    The question I want to answer is: what features in a headset are going to ‘wow’ consumers and actually improve user experience in a meaningful way for the 99% (i.e., not-golden lead ears)?
