Hi PH community! ๐Ÿ‘‹ Think of the last amazing thing you saw and easy it was to capture and relive on your phone. Now think of the last amazing thing you heard and how disappointing it sounded when you tried to capture and relive it. We're currently recording the world in mono (one channel), but we hear it in binaural (two channels). Half the audio means only half the story is being told. It can and should be better. Hooke Verse brings pro grade, immersive 3D audio recording to a device you already own: Bluetooth headphones. Lifeโ€™s special moments deserve to be amazingly captured and shared. Hooke Verse does this without adding a piece of gear to your life and a price that makes sense. Hooke Verse Features: โœ… RECORD IN 3D: Wirelessly record binaural 3D audio on any iOS and Android Device; made for mobile, compatible with DSLR, GoPro, 360 Fly, and VR cameras; capture content that feels alive. Easy to use for beginners, ASMR artists, and sound professionals. โœ… HOOKE APP: Use the specially designed Hooke Audio App to record in 3D audio; adjust the sound, record with special sound filters, generate a public feed or live stream, and use the 'selfie mode' โœ… FEATURES: 9 hours of 3D audio recording; 10 hours of music playback; wireless calling; noise isolating balanced dynamic drivers. Includes an inline analog to digital converter for wired recordings. โœ… SHARE: 3D playback can be enjoyed by anyone on standard headphones or stereo speakers; social media sharing functions can be accessed directly in-app; YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Google Drive โœ… BE HEAR: Hear sound as if you're there; product packaging can be transformed into a portable binaural head to record in 3D. Proprietary Hooke codec: Bluetooth 4.1, 16bit, 48kHZ.WAV sample rate, .0042ms latency We've just launched our brand new website and we want the World to hear the future of audio! ๐ŸŽง Get for $30 off by using code PH3DA at checkout! ๐ŸŽ‰ Thanks for checking out Hooke Verse!

Hi hunters! ๐Ÿ™Œ Thanks for checking us out. I want to tell you why I founded Hooke Audio. Simply put, I want people to care about sound. Before this, I worked as a theatrical sound designer on Broadway. I witnessed firsthand how little both my audiences and collaborators knew of the potential that great audio could bring to storytelling. I couldn't blame them. They'd never had an easy way to capture great audio on their phones the way they did with video and photo. They'd never seen (or heard) how much better concert videos, podcasts or even home videos could be when captured and shared with amazing sound. So I set out to change that by bringing pro grade immersive audio to all. I knew that if I could bring great audio recording to a product we already own and at an affordable price, I could get the world excited about creating with sound and thusly care. Just like what the iPhone camera did for video and photos, I knew we could do for sound. And hear (sound pun intended) we are! This is our "first Verse" and I appreciate your support and feedback. From One Ear To Another, Anthony

Thank you for the feedback Grace! It means a lot. Zebra print Hooke Verse?! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
The Hooke Verse is for me the best product I ever bought. Itโ€™s like VR for the blind. Even though I have a great sight I live a very sound based life and I love sharing my ambient soundscapes with people living on the other side of the globe. And when listening back to my recordings itโ€™s like reliving the moments again and again. It feels like teleportation.

@sylviad1971 Thank you so so much Sylvia, that is music to our ears!! ๐ŸŽง

Apart from the high spec recording audio quality, the app and integration with the mobile phone makes it an easy to use product for everyone. Cannot recommend it enough for those that want to make the best our of their recordings!

Pros:

Gives your phone or DSLR the ability of recording, real, binaural 3D sound.

Cons:

I cannot think of any!

This is music to our ears Markis. Thank you so so much for your support and record on!

I backed it on kickstarter, and it's one of the few hardware kickstarter projects I don't regret backing.

Pros:

The Hooke makes it really easy to record good quality binaural ("3D") sound to any external recorder with a stereo mini jack input.

Cons:

The Hooke app, at least on android, isn't very good - it's unreliable and unintuitive.
