    This link to a new earphone is the third instance I'm aware of a Dirac DSP being applied (via an Apple 'app') to a commercial headphone/earphone product. I've tested the Apple earbuds and Earpods and the t-Jays Four IEM, and this XTZ is a new IEM utilizing the Dirac DSP. I followed the articles relating to sound correction and impulse response in the Journal of the AES many years ago, and apparently now that digital music players like the Apple i-devices have the computing power to apply a true DSP code to digital music tracks, this is what we get - i.e. fantastic sound from inexpensive transducers. I'm still waiting for a Dirac-like DSP made for a high quality full size headphone.

    These look really nice. Having tried the Dirac software (and being very impressed) I would really like to hear these. If they were designed with the idea of being linked with the software - to take full advantage of the correction technology they might sound amazing!
