The Stages array is the center of our Audio Processing System (APS). With 8 MEMS microphones organized in a circular fashion, the array is responsible for capturing all incoming sound which is then processed by our proprietary speech and sound algorithms. The APS in both the Hero and Sidekick was designed to enhance your listening experience through selective sound admittance gating (when you hear ambient sound) and ambient+ audio spatialization (where you hear ambient sound from). In fact, these technologies make it possible to keep your headphones on when talking - no more lip reading and removing headphones/earbuds. Our products integrate with your life and remove isolation from immersion.
