What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Are you having trouble getting immersive surround sound? Still stuck with traditional headphones, or have messy cabling, trouble with software, and bulky control units?

The CAVE GH51 Pro is the world’s first wireless headphone that delivers you Dolby digital 5.1-channel realistic surround sound with 8 discrete speakers, 2 patented Dolby digital signal processing (DSP) technologies and advanced acoustic algorithms. No control unit, no setup, no hassles.

The CAVE GH51 Pro delivers true Dolby 5.1-channel wirelessly without additional software that emulates surround sound. Each cup of the headphone contains 4 discrete drivers - left surround, right surround, one mid-range speaker, and one sub woofer.

Our product utilises patented Dolby digital signal processing (DSP) technology and advanced acoustic algorithms to give you the most realistic and immersive experience.

The CAVE GH51 Pro takes the excitement of your games to the next level and truly immerses you in the action with more depth, realism and spatial accuracy. Get the winning edge or become lost in epic adventures with the details delivered by the headphone.

The CAVE GH51 Pro creates the sensation of multiple loudspeakers in a room. The effect is closer to home theater sound. You’ll experience the thrill of every action scene and the emotion in every poignant moment in movies and TV shows.

Dolby Digital 5.1, the established standard for cinema, broadcast, and home theater surround sound. The built-in Dolby Digital decoder ensures you get thrilling 5.1-channel surround sound along with Dolby Audio, including Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Atmos.

With traditional stereo audio, we have the Dolby Pro Logic IIx that could expand stereo to 5.1-channel sound for more precise localization of sounds and a more realistic ambience.

We introduce a solution to messy cabling by removing cables almost entirely. Our product comes with a compact transmitter that seamlessly streams digital audio from your favorite devices.

The 2.4 GHz proprietary wireless protocol associated with the transmitter seamlessly streams the most uncompressed audio with no latency.

Featuring 3 ports that support both digital and analog audio inputs, the transmitter has wide compatibility, supporting devices like your TV, Blu-ray player and game consoles.

Pairing the headphone to the transmitter is simple and effortless.

  • Connect the transmitter to your player device; 
  • Move the transmission switch to 5.1-CH; 
  • Press the volume knob (3D) once and the blue light of the logo on the outside of the cups will start to turn on and off for a few seconds until it stays on, which indicates that the headset and transmitter are already connected (the transmitter blinks too when connected).

The compact transmitter is compact designed with sleek looking on your devices. It could be mounted on your devices with hassle-free, non-adhesive sticky 3M gel back. Or you could just leave it lying around. It won’t take up too much space.

With a wireless range of 98.43ft, you’re free to get immersive entertainment anywhere in your room. It's a glorious goodbye to clumsy audio cables. 

The more, the merrier. The transmitter provides digital audio streaming to up to four CAVE GH51 Pro headphones simultaneously. Share your entertainment with your families, and friends.

Without the transmitter, the Cave GH51 can become a standalone Bluetooth headphone. With DSP and own algorithms, the same high quality 3D surround sound is maintained. Switch easily between Dolby 5.1-channel mode (5.1-CH) and Bluetooth mode (BT) with the flick of a button located on the side of the headphone.

With Qualcomm® aptX™ audio codec the audio of CAVE GH51 on Bluetooth mode is of the highest possible quality. Qualcomm® aptX™ audio coding algorithm provides a means to consistent, low latency and high-quality audio via Bluetooth. It has been used by major consumer electronics products, like the Samsung S9,B&O Beoplay H9, etc.

The CAVE GH51 Pro is ideal for a multitude of scenarios, whether you’re enjoying music on-the-go or playing your favorite video games.


The CAVE GH51 has a built-in omni-directional microphone to pick up your voice in crystal-clear clarity for your voice calls. Large buttons are also located on the side of both ear cups, allowing you to easily pick up calls while you're preoccupied.

The CAVE GH51 uses a 1500mAh lithium polymer rechargeable battery that stays powered for up to 6 hours for Wi-Fi use and up to 12 hours while streaming with Bluetooth.

The magnetic charging cable design prevents your headset from being affected if the cable gets snagged.

The LED flashes red and you’ll get short beeps when the headphone in low battery.

We understand that technology users in this day and age want their devices to feel personal. That’s why the CAVE GH51 comes with a customizable design – removable outer cover of the ear cups.

The translucent covers clip onto the headset with magnetic connectors.

The CAVE GH51 (Pro) is designed for comfort and long-time use, with replaceable high quality Protein PU Leather ear pads. The interior is made out of memory foam that offers a soft and breathable touch.

A Quick Comparison with the Competition:

In addition to CAVE GH51 Pro, we created CAVE GH51. They still have many of the same features and look identical to CAVE GH51 Pro, but come at a cheaper price.   

Take a look at a comparison between the features of CAVE GH51 Pro and CAVE GH51. 

Virtual Acoustic was founded by Virtual Acoustic from USA and SINCEAUDIO CROPROATION from China. Our brand creates products with gamers in mind, aiming to provide them high-end audio experience with immersive surround sound. We have invested over 10 million RMB to R&D and own dozens of patents in the invention, software, utility models and etc. We have obtained official licenses from Dolby Laboratories and QUALCOMM to incorporate their technology into our products. As a result, we have developed the world's first wireless products using 2.4GHz frequency that supports 6 channel audio transmission.
