The OSSIC X is a precision audio headphone system that is engineered to deliver the most immersive, accurate, and seamless 3D listening experience. This advanced playback is made possible by pairing precise anatomy calibration with proprietary software algorithms, all within a simple-to-use platform. 2016 has been a big year for the OSSIC X with a $2.7M Kickstarter and highest virtual reality Kickstarter of its time in addition to its recent accolades.

You can hear the OSSIC X at this year’s CES 2017 in Eureka Park at the Sands, Hall G Booth 50400. CES Innovation Honoree products are also featured on CES.tech/Innovation.


The four OSSIC founders have worked in the audio industry for a combined fifty years developing and shipping $5 Billion of top selling headphones and speakers on the market. They realized there was a large gap in what was currently available for 3D sound, and what was possible. With the belief that everyone should have access to the highest level of audio experience possible, they formed OSSIC in 2014 and have continued to push the boundaries of sound through technology.

OSSIC is part of the EvoNexus incubator in San Diego, and recently completed the Abbey Road Red Incubator based out of the studio in London. The OSSIC X is currently available for pre-order on www.ossic.com.
