Most of us live in a world of amazing, vivid sound. It envelops us. It soothes us. It excites us.
Yet, when we are ready for sound to entertain us, we’re left wanting. Details are missing. The natural sounds of instruments are lost. Dialog is compressed and unintelligible.
At the same time, it’s difficult to set up surround sound systems in large city apartments, homes, bedrooms, and dorm rooms.
XPUMP transforms any pair of stereo speakers into a virtual home theater sound system
Powered by Embrace Audio Lab’s patented XROUND™ digital signal processing algorithm, XPUMP is designed to unleash immersive sound for all.
XPUMP utilizes a patented digital signal processing algorithm called XROUND to transform flat stereo sound into an immersive three dimensional experience. XROUND works in real-time, extending the width and depth of the audio signal coming from your favorite game, movie, or music.
XPUMP is a gum-stick sized device that is amazing through speakers (home, desktop or portable) or headphones. You simply add XPUMP between your device (computer, television, gaming console, mobile) and the output (speakers or headphones) and press play.

XPUMP Proof of Functionality
Note: The XPUMP acoustic technology is required to be experienced by “actual human ears, both left and right ears” to hear and enjoy the immersive feeling. Our DSP and science needs to be processed and reconstructed in real space as it cannot be recorded by microphone. This video is just a proof of functionality, but is not for illustration of the real hearing experience.
Here’s the science behind XROUND™ and XPUMP:
Spherical Sound Field Expansion Technology multiplies the stereo sound field by 200 percent while enhancing signal depth, width, and detail.
Dynamic EQ that automatically adjusts according to audio detail and sound field for optimal audio presentation.
Real-Time Detail Boosting happens because the XROUND algorithm runs on a dedicated dual core processor at the clock speed of 55.3 MHz, meaning it’s working every microsecond. The audio boosting processor unleashes directional cues and hidden audio elements to deliver a totally immersive experience.
Psychoacoustic Bass Enhancement increases the perception of bass frequencies, even on smaller speakers and headphones.
XPUMP has been in development for years. The team at Embrace Audio Lab have been constantly designing and refining the performance, look, and feel of this pocket-sized, light, portable device.
We’ve honed the product so that it’s easy to use, simple, and beautiful.
XPUMP has gone around the world this past year. Audio enthusiasts and industry pros have been overwhelmed. See it for yourself:
XPUMP was developed through Embrace Audio Lab Inc. The company was founded in 2015 by passionate audio experts, designers, engineers, and audiophiles who have deep acoustics, digital signal processing, firmware, and hardware design experience. Based in Taipei, the Embrace mission is to redefine the audio industry by improving the listening experience. For more information, please visit: xroundaudio.com
Risks and challenges
