Whooshi lets you experience truly wireless and personalized audio, on any device.
Perfect headphones dоn’t exist. Wireless headphones are still inferior in sound quality to wired headphones, and smartphones are increasingly refusing the 3.5 mm jack. Besides, all devices have their own sound transmission characteristics and distort the frequency of the sound you hear in one way or another. Moreover, some people need more bass, while others need more treble. Because like our other sensory organs, no two ears hear the same, but your headphones don’t know that. That’s why WHOOSHI is designed so you can customize your audio experience.
WHOOSHI, a new portable wireless Bluetooth headphone amplifier with built-in powerful DAC by Cirrus Logic. It’s small and compact with a standard 3.5mm connection to make any headphones into almost ‘wireless,’ an amplifier that supports the last Bluetooth versions and wireless audio codecs. The easy-to-use WHOOSHI companion app (iOS and Android) creates your audio profile in 5 minutes and customizes the sound to your unique hearing sensitivity. For the first time, music lovers can quickly make their hearing count.
