Product Overview This small Bluetooth device latches on to your headphones and tracks your head movements in order to augment the immersive 3D audio experience created by Nx technology.

Use the Nx Head Tracker along with the Nx 3D audio apps to experience the music, movies and games you love in 3D audio – on your computer, tablet or mobile device, using any set of headphones.

Use the Nx Head Tracker along with the Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin in order to recreate on headphones the ideal spatial acoustics of a high-end room, improving your headphone mixing and recording experience.

Why Head Tracking Matters
When you hear sounds in the real world, your physical head movements help your brain create a sense of three-dimensional audio depth.

When your head moves, your brain remembers where the sound used to be and where it is now, combines this with its knowledge that the head (and not the external source) has moved, and uses this information to locate the external source and construct a three-dimensional “audio scene.”

However, when you listen to sound on headphones, the audio scene constantly shifts with your head, and your experience of three-dimensional auditory space is gone.

By tracking your head movements and adjusting the audio to the direction and orientation of your head, the Nx Head Tracker (combined with Nx software) helps reconstruct the realistic three-dimensional audio experience of sounds coming at you from external sources in the real world.

Nx Head Tracker, Webcam – or the Best of Both Worlds?
There are several ways you can track your head movements to enhance the Nx experience: you can use the Nx Head Tracker device; you can use your computer’s camera; or, if you are using the Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin, you can use both methods simultaneously, enjoying the best of both worlds (we call this option “sensor fusion” – see more details in the table below).

Using the Nx Head Tracker has several advantages over using your webcam. Here are some of the main ones:

The Nx Head Tracker is faster and more accurate, providing a much smoother tracking experience than a computer camera.With a webcam, you are limited to using Nx on a stationary device, for example a desktop computer, and you must be facing the camera at all times. With the Nx Head Tracker you can track your head movements while you are moving around, for example using a mobile device.A webcam can track your head movements in ±30 degrees only. The Nx Head Tracker can track them in full 360 degrees.With a webcam, only one user can use Nx software at a time; with the Nx Head Tracker, several users (each with his or her own Nx Head Tracker device) can experience Nx simultaneously on the same audio source.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with Windows 10 Creators Update It looks like the problem is known and support doesn't respond. Now I have a quite expensive paper weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Great for headphone mixing when you have no monitors to mix on, very neutral representation of a monitoring environment and the NX tracker is great for accuracy!
