ICSV23

International Congress on Sound and Vibration

Hefio will be attending the 23rd International Congress on Sound and Vibration from the 10th to the 14th of July in Athens.

The ICSV 2016 is the 23rd International Congress on Sound and Vibration 2016 and one of the most remarkable events on Technical Information, Scientific Information, Fundamental Sciences, Mechanics, Technological, Sound and Vibration areas. The ICSV is organized by the  International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration which main purpose is to advance the science of acoustics and vibration.

Since Hefio One is the first self-calibrating headphone on the market (first it measures the individual in-ear frequency response and then estimates the response at the eardrum; then it actively calibrates to always achieve the desired reproduction target at the eardrum) it’s presence in the ICSV is natural

The venue of the congress will be in the Athenaeum Intercontinental Hotel (in Syngrou Avenue 89-93, Athina 117 45, Greece) and Hefio will be at stand 28. Come and visit us.
