Build your own home theater for full-blast entertainment with 'Virtual Sound Ball'
Watching a 3 dimensional (3D) film at home can be just as real and fun as going to a movie theater. Professor Yang-Hann Kim and Research Professor Jung-Woo Choi from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, KAIST, have succeeded in building an audio rendering system that will considerably improve the current 3D audio effects technology. View News Article (2012-11-06)

Oohs and aahs: Vowel sounds affect our perceptions of products
Would you drive a SUV called a Himmer" Phonetic symbolism refers to the notion that the sounds of words, apart from their assigned definition, convey meaning. View News Article (2007-09-13)

NRL-SSC Scientists Investigate Acoustics in Gulf of Mexico
Scientists from the Naval Research Laboratory at Stennis Space Center, MS, (NRL-SSC) and Washington, D.C., recently completed an investigation of the acoustic properties of the deep seafloor in the Gulf of Mexico.  View News Article (2010-05-13)

Surviving dance club music (noise) with hearing intact
By tweaking a system in the ear that limits how much sound is heard, a global team of researchers has discovered one alteration that shows that the ability of the ear to turn itself down contributes to protecting against permanent hearing loss. The report appears this week in PLoS Biology. View News Article (2009-01-21)

Dinosaur-era acoustics: Global warming may give oceans the 'sound' of the Cretaceous

High-quality multi-channel listening with MP3 Surround
Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS presents the brand new MP3 Surround technology as a CeBIT premiere. A next generation of MP3, the MP3 Surround technology, provides a multi-channel listening experience with minimum effort and maximum compatibility. MP3 Surround allows the reproduction of high-quality multi-channel sound at bit rates comparable to those currently used to encode... View News Article (2004-03-12)

Researchers find how brain hears the sound of silence
A team of University of Oregon researchers have isolated an independent processing channel of synapses inside the brain's auditory cortex that deals specifically with shutting off sound processing at appropriate times. Such regulation is vital for hearing and for understanding speech. View News Article (2010-02-11)
