Additional Equipment

We recommend the use of a decent set of stereo headphones to experience Sounds Active ESE audio properly.

For classroom teaching, demonstrations or lectures, Sounds Active ESE can be teamed with external amplified loudspeakers, such as studio monitors.  Care should be taken if using a classroom’s built-in PA system, as these loudspeakers usually do not have adequate frequency response (particularly for bass frequencies) and they may not be optimally positioned for stereo.
