Surrounded By That Ringtone

from the the-engulfing-ringtone dept

As mobile phones are increasingly being used as media devices as well (though, perhaps not as fast as some would like) it looks like some are trying to come up with ways to make them sound better. The latest is an effort to create a “surround sound” effect for mobile phones. It only uses two speakers, but subtly adjust the soundwaves to give the appearance of surround sound. While that might be nice for someone listening to music on their own, it seems likely to make phones ringing in public areas even more annoying (and, perhaps, more difficult to locate).
