Accudio™ Audio Science
“Above and Beyond EQ”
Top-class experts’ meticulous custom fine-tuning for each and every earphone/headphone model for the maximum sound quality
Why not enough with generic EQ?1) Such audio gears as earphones and headphones constitute a crucial factor for sound quality, since they range a wide spectrum of audio distortion according to how well calibrated.
2) Meanwhile, each and every earphone/headphone has its own acoustic properties in internal construction and driver design. This explains broad discrepancies in sound quality for each product and, to put it another way, each individual earphone/headphone needs tailored optimization for the maximum performance.
3) However, generic equalizers fail to provide sound compensation based on individual earphone/headphone-wise professional measurement and calibration as Accudio™ does. Thus, such across-the-board settings of generic equalizers pose a fundamental limit to sound improvement.
※ Professional audio calibration is a very exhaustive process while measurement and adjustment should be carried out consecutively at the coalface. Even the audio expert manages to handle a single product calibration in a day at best. Naturally, generic EQ is no match to professional custom-calibration.
Earphones/headphones, the primary culprit behind sound distortionThe fidelity of sound is compromised while passing through a device for reproduction. The audio playback process consists of a series of connected components and each component adds a different level of distortion.
Meanwhile, the sound distortion of an audio file caused by electronic components (i.e. Smartphone, MP3, DAC and etc.) is practically minor and maybe even negligible (+- 1dB), since basically electrical signals are processed in the same nature inside the digital domain.
However, in between the electronic components and those external transducers (i.e. earphones, headphones, loudspeakers and etc.), somewhat significant transformation occurs from electrical signals to acoustic signals (so to speak, “from digital signals to analogue signals”), exhibiting much greater distortion spectrum (+- 20dB).
A pioneering frontrunner in the science for measuring the perceived sound quality and the universal accurate audio reproductionDespite pros and cons, the scientific objective methods and metrics to quantitatively evaluate audio performance provide meaningful values and are acknowledged as an alternative solution to conventional subjective emotional evaluation methods with wide discrepancies.
We at Golden Ears (“GE”) are Korea’s first and reputable leader in scientific audio evaluation and advanced sound compensation technology. GE have provided to top-notch global manufacturers and the Korean government consulting services on audio products and standards for audio device test respectively. We also have publicized a number of technical reports analyzing audio performance of each audio device. Those reports are acknowledged as the most credible among Korean consumers who refer to it for purchase as well as manufacturers and mass media.
What matters most of all is that our empirical hands-on measurements of nearly one thousand audio products for years prove the rule that a unit that measures great also sounds great without exception.
The world’s best-performance in matching our DB to human perception
The most important factor is the proximity of our database to match human perception. In other words, what we find must correlate with what people hear.
“Do all earphones have a linear relationship?”
In many cases, there is a gap between simulated (theoretical) sound compensation and actual response. For this reason, the process of double checking actual data and further adjustment as applicable is pivotal for the most accurate sound production.
How Accudio™ works
How do you enjoy Hi-Fi sound with fairly inexpensive earphones/headphones under $20?
By generating compensating signals using a parametric equalizer according to the frequency response of the earphone/headphone, the sound that reaches human ears will be near perfect Hi-Fi sound.
Using professional measuring equipment to determine the characteristics of the product and determining the best possible solution based on the gathered data require thorough knowledge and expertise in acoustics and electronics. Therefore, we created Accudio™ which lets you playback your music in near perfect Hi-Fi sound without any hassle.
1. Measuring the data of earphones and headphones.
Golden Ears measures earphones and headphones using professional measuring equipment to determine the characteristics of the product. And to contrive the best possible solution based on such gathered data requires thorough knowledge and expertise in acoustics and electronics.
2. Simulation Program for accurate compensation
Golden Ears’ simulation program load measured data of earphones and headphones. And it shows frequency response graph. And it calculates the final response of actual data and settings. Expert at Golden Ears can make optimized settings for each product through this program.
3. Double checking with actual equipment
Golden Ears double check actual data with our test equipment. And if there is a gap between simulation and actual, we tuned our settings according to actual data. This manual double-checking towards perfection consummates the unrivaled performance and accuracy of our profile database.
All you provide is the brand and the model, and your earphone/headphone will start delivering near perfect Hi-Fi sound to your ears. In this way, you can boost the performance of your earphones very easily.
