Sony Trademarks ClearAudio+ For Consoles; PS4/Vita Support Coming as Well?

The United States Patent and Trademark office just published the registration documents of another audio-related trademark from Sony Corporation. This time around it’s “ClearAudio+.”

The interesting thing is that the trademark has been filed between others for class 9 (which links it to games) and for “computer game programs for home video game machines” and “electronic circuits and CD-Roms recording programs for hand-held games with liquid crystal displays.”

Sony, you thieving dogs surprising us the gamers again!

How about you surprise yourself by going outside ;)

On topic: They will probably bring all the audio enhancements that they've created for xperia devices to other hardware products under this name. Hope it will be brought along with Walkman PS4

Oh The irony...

You're saying him to go outside when you are here as well. Surprise yourself!

Maybe I'm outside on my tablet or phone?

Nah, Who am I kidding, I'm watching world cup games, some outside some at home

Hi-Res Audio...and now ClearAudio+!

My HD listeners are prepared!

I suspect you are talking about a headset or amp of some kind, but I hope you call your ears "hd listeners".

Like I call my nose a lossless compression smell receptor.

You did not have to go there. It's his opinion! really man?
that straight up sounds like a personal attack.
You should choose your words wisely.

Volkama2214d ago

Not sure if serious. If I may have caused some offense with that then I apologise, it certainly wasn't my intention.

ShinMaster2214d ago (Edited 2214d ago )

I thought it was funny. Especially the lossless smell receptor part.

Rainbowcookie2214d ago

MP3 support or will it be project morpheus related. My money would be on the latter.

Hopefully this means improved codec when using headsets.

Do you mean equalizer? I personally hate using EQ on any kind of audio equipment. Anything that tampers with the source audio is not good for the audio in most scenarios. All that is needed is a quality set of headphones and a external usb microphone (for online gaming). On the Vita it would make sense if an EQ is used when the speakers are in use because of the low quality of said speakers. EQ in my opinion should only be used during the mixing and mastering stages of the music, movie, etc. ClearAudio+ is basically the same thing as the Beats by Dre on Cell phones and HP laptops. This is an Equalizer program to make you think that your equipment sounds better.

Now off topic I do not like the incorrect usage of words. Now before you or anyone else blows up at me this is meant to be Constructive criticism. Your use of the word codec is incorrect. Codecs are software or hardware that decodes or encodes an digital signal. When you think codec try to think MPEG Layer-3 (MP3), H.264, FLACK, ACC, ATRAC3, Apple Loss-less Audio, MPEG-2 (DVD Video), and many others.
