Waves Nx is a ground breaking audio technology that finally bridges the gap between speakers and headphones. With the Waves Nx App and the Waves Nx Head Tracker device you can use any headphones and listen to all of your content in truly immersive 3D sound, everywhere you go!

The perception of spatial sound in the real world is a complex phenomenon. It combines the interactions between the acoustic sound waves and the room or space, the interaction with our head and ears, the reaction of our middle and inner ear and the audio nerve, and finally our brain’s cognition and interpretation of the acoustic scene. The perception of sound over headphones is a completely different experience. If we take listening to stereo headphones vs. listening to speakers as our example, there are several major differences:

Waves Nx uses head tracking and scientific models of the way our brains and ears perceive audio to create an amazing sounding fully immersive 3D audio experience that turns any pair of headphones into a high quality Speaker Setup, it not only models the speakers, it models the entire room!

• With Waves Nx any pair of headphones will deliver the same listening experience a GREAT speaker system does.
• Get the ideal acoustics of a recording studio– inside your headphones!
• Spotify Support - stream music directly from Spotify using Spotify Premium service with Waves Nx – enjoy a wealth of content in immersive 3D audio using Waves Nx.
• Live Concerts and Music all sound more authentic with Waves Nx! Experience all of your favorite content the way it was meant to be heard!
• Reduces the inconvenience caused by listening through headphones over extended periods of time.

The Waves Nx Head Tracker can also be used with the Waves Nx applications for Windows and Mac and even with the Waves Nx – Virtual Mix Room plug-in for professional audio workstations, check www.waves.com/nx for more information!

great app! movie app support will be game changer!


I have this app and the head tracker! it's fantastic! I highly recommend the windows and Mac version as that can also work without the head tracker with just a camera. Movies come alive with Waves Nx

Not enough streaming services are supported


This is an audio enhancement app, it would go well with streaming services like Tidal that allow you to listen to music or better quality, please update!

Awesome...BUT WAIT...


This app is absolutely AWESOME! I can't live without it. After the most recent app update, the app failed, but in less than 24 hours after I posted a negative review - it was fixed! And I spoke too soon. It plays one song and then stops.
