If you know music then you know Songza. They’re the playlist magicians whose iOS app nabbed nearly a million downloads in its first week on the market. They’ve built a pretty strong following on the internet (needless to say) and, as music goes mobile, so must the platforms. Which brings us to their next big move: Us. Audyssey, that is, because the newest version of Songza’s iOS app includes the world’s best playback technology. Audyssey Media Player Technology is now embedded in the app itself and it works with more precision and personalization than anything else on the market.
Songza prides itself on offering the best playlists for any situation by employing a team of music experts who listen to the music, assess it, then compile it for your work mix, gym list, etc. What they haven’t done, is adjusted the playback itself for your headphones. And with such a wide variety of quality headphones on the market these days that can be a pretty significant step. So Songza turned to Audyssey.
We put our team of sound experts to work applying the science behind Audyssey MultEQ to headphones. It took a while, but the technology that transformed Home Theater is now fixing headphones. Audyssey is able to make specific audio filters for each individual pair: over-ear, in-ear, ear buds, EarPods, you name it. So far our database of headphone profiles has 140 different makes and models, and it’s still growing.
The result is a sound as perfectly selected for the listener as the playlist. Songza with AMP Technology is bringing the best to audio.
How does it work? Simply. When you plug your headphones in, AMP Technology detects the headphones, then asks which pair you’re using. The drop-down menus will give you a brand selection and then a model. You pick yours and get listening.
What if you own different pairs of headphones? Don’t worry, Songza will store multiple pairs so you don’t have to keep selecting them from the database.
After years of incorporating our technology into top-line AVRs, luxury cars and IMAX Theatres, Audyssey has seen masses of people hear the difference in great audio. But not many companies get the opportunity to flood 14 million ears with perfect sound at the same time. We’re excited, to say the least.
