Listen Intelligently

Surround sound is natural. The human hearing is always in surround mode. SONIQ’s iQS™ surrounds you in a sphere with sound that is immersive, natural and dynamic. With SONIQ’s iQS™ powered sound systems, an ordinary movie night at home transforms into a cinematic event in an elegant and simple solution.

Typically, to create an immersive 3D sound environment will require complex setups that include assigned placements of speakers or wall reflectors. With SONIQ’s iQS™, audio signal processing is simplified into one compact solution that is rich and lifelike.

SONIQ’s iQS™ offers a significant quality, performance and price advantage over competing solutions. Basic surround sound is created by experiencing sound from several angles, but it does not reconstruct the placement of each instrument or voice. With surround sound, the sound is at the speaker, whereas with iQS™ audio technology, sound travels from the speaker directly to your ear, giving you a greater sense of the sound’s inception and location.

Our passion to create audio purity has guided us in the development of our technology and products. With our proprietary components, unique speaker configuration and specialist audio tuning, we have delivered a solution that is a combination of science and art. The result? Magic to your ears!

Key Features of SONIQ iQS™

  • Proprietary design that combines speaker placement with matching analog signal processing circuit to create an immersive audio perception and direction
  • Maintains vocal clarity in enhanced sound environment
  • Intelligently recreates the sound field as it was intended and captured during recording

SONIQ is a specialist audio design and engineering company with a portfolio of products utilizing proprietary iQS™, intelligent sound technology which transforms the way sound is heard by intelligently recreating the sound environment as it was recorded: immersive, natural and dynamic.

SONIQ was founded in 2009 after one of the founders, Mr. Chandra Reddy, observed that audio technology had not made quite the same leap in quality as visual technology had on television. Determined to close the gap, Mr. Reddy embarked on a search to find a solution to the problem and which led him to SONIQ’s co-founder, Mr. Yas Yamazaki.

Mr. Yamazaki had served as the President of Nakamichi USA and his three decades of experience in consumer audio electronics were influenced by his childhood passion to perfect audio fidelity. Together, they formed SONIQ and combined their collective expertise in audio processing circuits and semiconductor production, to develop a chip that would eventually become iQS™, intelligent sound.

By combining SONIQ’s technological expertise with their passion for movies and music, the company transforms the way sound is experienced in a simple and elegant solution. The result is a home theater experience without multiple wired speakers, special room set ups, and above all without the cost and complexity!
