GenAudio Inc., developer of AstoundSound™ 4D sound localization cue technology, today announced that the company’s AstoundStereo Expander software is currently the top audio software download on Apple’s online download site. The software also remains among the ranks of the top 10 most downloaded products for all third party software available on the site.
GenAudio launched the AstoundStereo Expander in January, 2009, providing Mac users with an advanced software solution to enhance their audio experience. The AstoundStereo Expander is derived from GenAudio’s proprietary AstoundSound 4D technology, which draws on years of audio perception research to immerse listeners in a 360 degree, spherical soundscape that mimics the sound of real life. The AstoundStereo Expander allows Mac users to apply this enhanced audio processing technology to their existing digital audio for a heightened, deepened and widened listening experience through as little as two audio channels, such as headphones, home theater speakers or laptop speakers.
“We are extremely excited to see that our AstoundStereo Expander software has resonated with Mac owners and is filling the void that existed in experiencing high-quality audio from basic laptop speakers or headphones,” said Jerry Mahabub, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GenAudio. “The fast ascent of the product into the top position of audio downloads from Apple’s online site validates the quality of our product and the superior audio experience it is able to deliver. Consumers are looking for an affordable product to enhance the audio of their media collections and we are providing the best solution.”
When downloaded, the AstoundStereo Expander software processes all audio on Mac users’ laptop or desktop computer in real-time. This enables the listener to hear their music, movies and video games in a richer, fuller way. The product’s most recent update included hotkey functionality for adjusting the intensity of the application’s effect on the audio and an overall performance upgrade.
Mac owners who wish to experience the enhanced audio provided by the AstoundStereo Expander for their movies, music and games can download a free 30-day trial at Apple’s online download site http://www.apple.com/downloads or at www.astoundstereo.com. Following the trial, users can purchase the software for $39.95.
