About the Genelec S360 Smart Active Monitor:
The Genelec S360 is a precision SAM-Series, 2-way active studio monitor designed to provide reference-quality monitoring for applications where the requirement is high SPL for multiple listeners at a distance—from large, immersive setups in post-production studios or film-mixing stages to live monitoring for music-production playback. Housed in a compact, low-diffraction enclosure with quality Finnish woodwork, the S360 is equipped with a 10″ woofer and an integrated, extended Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) supporting its 1.7″ titanium-diaphragm compression tweeter.

About the Genelec Aural ID software:
Genelec Aural ID is a smartphone app that computes how your head, external ear and upper body affect and color audio arriving from any given direction. This effect is called the Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF), and it is totally unique to every user. Aural ID models your personal head and upper torso features to calculate your own individual HRTF, delivering a file to you that then can be integrated into your audio workstation via a growing number of third-party plug-ins.
