“…The thought of what the world is going to be like in just five years, let alone a decade, induces pure vertigo… I can pin this sensation down to the exact moment […] that I stood among the pillars of [the] 4DSOUND system and put on an Oculus Rift visor, which transformed the room […] while my feet disappeared beneath me. Vertigo on so many levels.” - THE WIRE


“The [4DSOUND] system is going to change music as much as the birth of amplification.” - FACT MAGAZINE.


“It’s difficult to explain the effect in words, but when used properly, it allows artists to create a rich, constantly moving and evolving piece that not only sounds amazing, but also comes much closer to what sounds are like in the real world.” - XLR8R.


“4DSOUND is to surround sound what surround sound is to a wind-up phonograph, a development in sound art and music as transformative as the shift from black & white to colour.” - THE ARTS DESK. 


“A new sound rig that will change the way we interact with music forever.” - DJBROADCAST.


“A revolutionary design… A unique listening experience… It can offer extraordinary new possibilities for composers – from classical to techno – to make their music sound in space.” - AV&ENTERTAINMENT.
