The Smyth Research Realiser recreates, in headphones, the complete experience of listening to any real loudspeaker system in a real room - in up to sixteen channel surround sound.
The emulation includes the precise localization of all the speakers in the room, the room acoustics, and the response of the speakers and the electronics in the emulated system.
In immediate A/B comparison between the actual room/speakers and the Realiser/headphones, listeners say the two are indistinguishable. Head tracking keeps the sound image stationary as the listener's head turns.
The Smyth Realiser is a revolutionary product that will change the way we listen to headphones.

The High End Munich 2017 show saw, the first demonstration of the new Realiser.
This demonstration at the Munich High End 2017 show followed our traditional setup whereby listeners were invited to compare a real 7.1.4 ch loudspeaker home theatre system with a personalised virtual rendering of the same system over headphones as generated through the Realiser.
Movie clips from the Dolby Atmos demonstration Blu-ray Disc were used as
source material for the demonstration.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Sonny Trigg, inearspace.com
"First I listened to sound from the speakers. Then I listened to sound with the headphones. They sounded near identical! Both tonally and critically spatially the headphones were perfectly reproducing what I heard in the room.”
Peter Aylett, hiddenwires.co.uk
"..on music the Realiser created the sort of seamless, enveloping, and three-dimensional listening experience that many audiophiles crave.”
Chris Martens, hi-fi+
"During the listening demo, I could not tell that the sound I was hearing was from a pair of headphones. The emulation is so realistic that I thought the sound was coming from the dummy speakers positioned around me.”
David Susilo, wifihifi.ca
"My first experience of its speaker-listening illusion left me, quite literally, open-mouthed.” Mike Senior, soundonsound.com
John Acton, positive-feedback.com
"For the first time in my life, headphone listening was not only convincing but enjoyable. The Realiser provided the same balance and sound staging as my main system.”
Kalman Rubinson, stereophile
