JVC 1BOX Prototype

Living in an apartment frequently relegates audiophiles and home theater enthusiasts to headphones; most higher-end speakers transmit too much sound into nearby floors and walls, forcing lower volume levels. JVC has unveiled a stereo speaker technology that solves this problem by effectively targeting the sound at a specific area. The 1BOX (translated Japanese) prototype uses the same principle as active noise-cancelling headphones to prevent audio from escaping beyond a certain range - 3 feet with the current design. When finished products arrive in coming months, listeners will be able to sample a new CD or watch a movie at high volume without disturbing neighbors or even those in the next room.
