Noveto Systems Shows Off Headphones Without Headphones at GDC
By Jordan Minor 03.23.2018
Since GDC stands for the GameDevelopers Conference we’ve spent most of our time here checking out video games specifically, not tech in general. However, we made exception for one pitch that seemed so crazy we had to check it out in person for ourselves. Startup Noveto Systems promises audio technology that lets you and only you hear what you want to be hearing. And our demo made us believers in this “headphones without headphones” technology.

By Nina Salomons Last updated Jan 19, 2018
The CES event can hold many brand new innovations, and sometimes you find or experience something that you realise is truly innovative. At CES 2018, Las Vegas, VRFocus had a chance to try out Noveto Systems’ Sowlo, a hands-free system of personalised sound which requires no accessories on your hands, head, eyes or face.
MacVoices #18008: CES Unveiled – Noveto Systems Delivers Single-User, Focused Audio
Chuck Joiner January 15, 2018
At CES Unveiled in Las Vegas, Tomer Shani, Co-Founder and CEO of Noveto Systems, provides a demonstration and explanation of their “headphones without headphones” technology that delivers focused sound to a user and to no one around him. Noveto recognizes where your ears are and sends the sound only in that direction, so the person standing next to you hears almost nothing.

An Israeli future forward audio startup called Noveto is introducing next generation virtual and augmented sound to video games via their “My Virtual Headphones”. Noveto’s technology is available in a variety of their products. Sowlo is next generation listening technology that delivers sound straight to the user’s ears and nowhere else.
Mercedes Forced Outside the Box in Search of the Next Big Thing
March 1, 2017
The co-founder of Noveto Systems Ltd. had five minutes to impress some 1,000 auto executives, venture capitalists and fellow entrepreneurs with his startup’s novel audio system. At stake, a potential supply deal with Mercedes-Benz.
After a tentative beginning, Tomer Shani asked the crowd in Stuttgart, Germany, to “imagine a world without headphones and wires,” where speakers beam sound directly to a listener’s ears, imperceptible to others close by. He then invited everyone to test it first-hand in a Mercedes S-Class sedan in a corner of the exhibition hall.
Acoustic Platform Could Create A World Without Headphones
by Sensors Staff | Mar 3, 2017
At Daimler’s Startup Autobahn Expo Day, high-tech acoustic system developer Noveto Systems unveiled a technology platform that it claims will fundamentally change the way sound is produced and consumed. Touted as a revolution in sound, where sound becomes dynamic, smart, personal, private, and healthy, the technology was integrated and demonstrated live in a demo Mercedes.
Revolutionary Technology for Delivering Audio Sound Directly to the Users Ear Applied to the Automobile and Home Markets
Interview conducted by: Lynn Fosse, Senior Editor, March 27, 2017
CEOCFO: Mr. Shani, would you tell us about Noveto and your Sowlo product?
Mr. Shani: Noveto Systems is a startup company based in Israel that is changing the way sound is produced and consumed. We have developed a system to transmit or “beam” sound to a user’s ears without any hardware (such as headphones) on the user. You can imagine it as if we are creating small virtual speakers next to your ears; some would call it virtual head phones.
Sonic Boom: Internet of Sound Blasting Off
All’s been quiet on the sound technology front, but a new “virtual speaker” system is set to disrupt the way audio is transmitted…by not being disruptive at all.

When Israeli entrepreneur Tomer Shani was looking for the next big idea in 2011, he realized he should have been listening. There have been so many advances in touchscreens and other displays as they have gone from HD to 3D to 4K and now to the realm of virtual reality, but there hasn’t been any major innovation in sound technology for decades.
Noveto Systems Wins in an Exclusive Daimler’s STARTUP AUTOBAHN Program
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL–(Marketwired – July 21, 2016)
Noveto Systems LTD, a company dedicated to developing the next generation of audio human-machine interface, has announced that out of 300 companies, it is among the first three to win a place on the Daimler’s Startup Autobahn program — a program that unites global startups with the unrivalled tech expertise of Silicon Valley and the best of German engineering.
Best of MWC 2016
There are so many possible applications for Private Sound: TVs, gaming, IoT, general communications, PCs, services, smartphones, and so on. It’s not a surprise that several big names in the industry are already showing interest in Noveto’s system.
New Tech for the Home, Office and… Factory
Coming to an office near you in early 2017
The product of two rapidly evolving (and shrinking) technologies: 3-D tracking and sound projection wires were once a necessary evil of the personal audio experience, and soon the in-ear or on-ear component may also be obsolete. A sound projection system will track your head movements and fire audio to your ears like a laser. With this technology, from Israeli-based startup Noveto Systems Ltd., you could take a personal call or enjoy death metal in your cubicle without the hindrance of headphones. Anyone nearby, even within inches of your head, won’t hear a thing.
Diesen Lautsprecher kann nur einer hören
Dazu verfolgt die Noveto-Technik mit einer 3D-Kamera den Kopf des Menschen und lenkt mit speziellen Lautsprechern den Ton nur an seine Ohren. Was ein bisschen wie Zauberei klingt, soll schon Ende dieses Jahres als fertiges Produkt in die Läden kommen.
Auf der Unterhaltungselektronik-Messe CES 2016 in Las Vegas konnte BILD die Technologie bereits ausprobieren. Das erste Gerät, in dem sie zum Einsatz kommen soll, ist ein Bluetooth-Lautsprecher für Smartphones.
Startup can direct sound to your ears only
BARCELONA — For Your Ears Only means of course that the words being spoken are only intended for you.
An Israeli startup I met up with recently at Mobile World Congress called Noveto Systems has developed “Private Sound” technology that can literally beam audio to your ears and your ears only, while the person right next to you cannot hear a thing.
Noveto speaker plays so only you can hear, no headphones needed
Noveto has shown off its directional speaker system that it wants to change the world by putting an end to headphones.
The idea behind the Noveto speaker is to play audio directly into the ears of a single person without anyone else hearing the sound.
Why would you want this? At work it could be great for taking calls without a headset, or listening to music without bothering anyone. At home you could watch TV or play a game without anyone else hearing – you could even have different sound to each gamer. If there’s someone who is hard of hearing they could have a louder feed than everyone else in the room.
Noveto Systems Changes Sound As We Know It
It’s not that often that you witness a product demonstration that absolutely blows your mind. But at last week’s Mobile World Congress, Israeli company Noveto Systems did just that. They are developing the next-generation of human-machine vocal interface, enabling sound-emitting devices to transmit sound beams to the user’s ears only, without any external hardware on the user.
Start-up Noveto will Audio-Nutzung revolutionieren
Das israelische Start-up Noveto will mit einer neuartigen Klang-Steuerung Kopfhörer künftig überflüssig machen. Als erstes Gerät ist eine Docking-Station für Smartphones angekündigt.
New speakers can “focus” the sound so only you can hear it
As far as I’m concerned, headphones are a necessary evil: I don’t really like wearing them, but I wouldn’t want to hear other people’s music while I work and I wouldn’t want to bother others either. Unfortunately for me, earbuds never stay in my ears and since I wear glasses at the PC, normal headphones are pretty uncomfortable as well. This is why I really liked the new prototype that Noveto created. The company came up with a system of directional speakers that can focus the emitted sound waves so that only your ears can hear them.
Private Sound Technology – Diesen Sound Kann Nur Eine Person Hören
Ihr habt bisher noch nichts vom israelischen Unternehmen Noveto gehört? Das wird sich in naher Zukunft bestimmt ändern. Der Hightech-Gigant arbeitet aktuell an einem Lautsprecher-System, dessen Sound nur zu den Ohren des Zuhörers gelangt. Bereits in diesem Jahr soll das erste fertige Produkt erscheinen. Wie das System funktioniert, erfahrt ihr hier.
