New speaker system cancels its own noise to deliver better sound


Toshiba, in collaboration with a university professor and a company called Actimo [JP], has developed the “accurate sound reproduction technology”, which might pave the way for better sound coming from speakers in the future.

The new technology is based on using an auxiliary speaker that cancels noise generated by the main speaker, making it possible for users to listen to the original sound. Opposite-phase sound waves are generated to eliminate noises that result from hardware insufficiency in speakers.

Toshiba says that a whopping 40% or more of speaker sound is noise. The company claims its new technology helps to cut as much as 90% of that noise and that it thinks about incorporating it in Toshiba products in the future.
