airSOUND® the latest British sound technology found only in orbitsound’s range of products this Christmas

No more hot-spots – no more hot ears – the future of stereo music has arrived. airSOUND® offers real stereo sound from single speaker enclosures. The latest sound technology to come out of Britain since Alan Blumlein filed his stereo patent in 1931 is exclusively available in orbitsound’s range of affordable products. Created by Ted Fletcher airSOUND® is a revolutionary single point stereo technology that delivers true stereo sound from a single speaker – filling the room and your head.

T3 – perfect for movers and players

The orbitsound T3 is an entirely new product concept, made possible by the development of airSOUND® single-point-stereo. Weighing only 115g the T3 is a portable stereo speaker system that plugs into your device (iPod, music phone, media player, PSP®).

Not only do headphones ruin your hair, there’s also a technical problem with them (and ear-buds). The problem is that they are not really stereo - just two separated mono signals clamped to your ears. Listening to stereo means you have to hear the sound from both speakers with each ear. This effect gives you the stereo sound field in between the speakers. Because headphones and ear-buds have monochannels, most people hear the sound in the middle or back of their head, as opposed to in front and around where the sound field is supposed to be.

The T3’s approach is to create a personal sound field (sound bubble), and when worn around the neck the T3’s unique BODYSOUND™ effect uses your own body to reinforce the sound. This innovative system allows music to be literally placed in the air, all around your head.

The sound from the T3 is a real spatial stereo sound field and, this way, you won’t be isolated from the environmental sounds around you anymore. You can listen to your favourite music and still be aware of traffic noise and people around or behind you in the street.

When you’re not wearing it the T3 can be placed on a flat surface and used as a travelling stereo sound system: ideal for use with PCs, laptops, digital media players or game players on the move.

Measuring just 102 x 60 x 19mm (22mm at maximum) the T3 is powered by a lithium rechargeable battery, providing up to 10 hours playing time on a single charge.

T12 – want perfect sound without the fuss?

Does the idea of perfectly balanced stereo sound appeal, but the reality of having to rearrange furniture or hide wires put you off? Look no further.

For movie enthusiasts and digital music listeners, the T12 soundbar and subwoofer delivers true spatial stereo without needing carefully positioned speakers to clutter your living environment. The T12 offers an instant and simple flat screen TV or high end multimedia sound upgrade with iPod® dock and remote control.

The major advantages over the more conventional (but less correct) way of listening to stereo, apart from the obviously lack of wires and ugly boxes are that there is absolutely no 'sweet spot'. The stereo effect is clear wherever you are. And it doesn’t matter where you put the airSOUND® loudspeaker because the sound fills the room.

There are no timing, phase and frequency response problems that are endemic with 2-speaker systems and as the phase relationships are more accurately reproduced, the music sounds noticeably cleaner and more clearly defined.

The orbitsound T3 (£49 inc VAT) and T12 (£249) are available to buy from selected independent retailers or online at

About orbitsound

orbitsound is the world’s first product range to feature airSOUND® single-point-stereo technology. The technology returns to the earliest work by British scientist Alan Blumlein into stereo reproduction as discrete signal and spatial information. While this theory was realised in the M&S (middle and side) stereo recording technique, still favoured by many classical recording engineers, it has only now been successfully engineered as a replay technology. It is the combination of this and a number of other electro-acoustic principles that is the subject of the various airSOUND® technology patents developed by another British scientist Ted Fletcher. Standard L / R stereo is encoded by airSOUND® amplifiers in the speaker enclosure to direct and spatial signal information; the direct signal is reproduced from a front firing driver and the spatial information from smaller side firing transducers. These signals combine in the air to produce uniform stereo sound everywhere in a room.
