Orbitsound Limited is a British company originally based in Torquay. It designs and manufactures high quality and unique consumer audio products using its patented airSOUND technology.
All of Orbitsound's products are built around its unique airSOUND technology. Ted first developed the patented airSOUND technology in 2004 and having spent some years honing the technology and registering patents the decision was made to establish Orbitsound to develop and bring to market competitively priced high quality consumer audio products. The Orbitsound T3 speaker caused a huge stir when first launched at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. As well as being featured on BBC and CNN coverage of the show and generating significant press and trade interest, the technology was then showcased by Disney Corporation at its prestigious “Best of CES” show.
Orbitsound's versatile T12 soundbar was a runaway success with the critics and was shortlisted by Macworld for 2009 Consumer Audio Product of the year. It received a significant number of rave reviews including five stars in Macworld and iPod user. T3 Magazine described it as "the best iPod dock-cum-soundbar around".
airSOUND technology delivers true spatial stereo sound from a single speaker enclosure. It means you hear stereo throughout the room. Literally everywhere is the sweet spot. As opposed to traditional two speaker stereo where, if set up correctly with the left and right speakers at the right distance apart, there is a single limited sweetspot where the stereo may sound right. But everywhere else there is wave interference and one channel sounds louder than the other. The airSOUND technology used by Orbitsound eliminates this problem. The positioning of the Orbitsound speaker is unimportant and the listener hears the same high quality stereo sound throughout the room. Surround yourself with sound, not with speakers and cables!
