Hmm… this sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

Logitech G and Embody are partnering up to bring support for Embody’s Immerse app to the Logitech G line of gaming headphones. Embody is a spatial audio company, and Immerse is a new app that is designed to make game audio sound as realistic as possible. 

The app will use AI to create a personalised sound profile for each user - and it does that by taking a picture of your right ear. Immerse’s AI will then use algorithms to predict how your ears receive sound by analysing the picture.

Embody’s Immerse app is a paid subscription service, with a free two-week trial period, followed by subscriptions from US$3 (around S$4) per month. The app will support quite a few Logitech G devices, including:

  • PRO X

  • PRO Gaming Headset (2019)

  • PRO Gaming Headset (2017)

  • G231

  • G233 Prodigy

  • G332/G331

  • G432/G431

  • G433

  • G533

  • G633

  • G635/G633s

  • G933

  • G935/G933s

Embody’s tech isn’t actually unheard of. Creative has been dabbling in producing the same kind of realistic audio for consumers with their Super X-Fi software. The company has an official SXFI app, which also requires users to take pictures of their head and ears.
