Only a mad scientist could really bring a set of headphones to life.
Fortunately, we have one. Silmon James Biggs, Ph.D. Neuroprosthetics, at your service.
James invested years in finding better ways to interface people with technology — as a student, as a post-doc at the MIT Touch Lab, in Silicon Valley startups and at ginormous corporations. All that led James to these insights that he poured into his research:
— We feel deep bass as vibration more than we hear it
— Conventional headphone audio drivers can’t move enough air to do that
— It might be possible to design a new transducer that can do that
What came next is classic startup stuff: failure, caffeine, failure, ramen noodles, failure, failure, Eureka! (except not), insomnia, caffeine, and finally, triumph.
The result of his obsession? A patented transducer that goes lower, gives flatter frequency response, and delivers faster, more honest, accurate bass than you’ve ever experienced. Bass that takes you there.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Taction Transporter.
