WAVES Nx – 3D Audio On Any Headphones

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2016-06-23

Waves Nx is the first application to bring personalized 3D sound to any pair of headphones. Music, movies, and games can be heard in a revolutionary way, as they take on a new dimension of immersive 3D reality and it all happens inside the headphones you already own. Waves Nx is an application that you install on your desktop computer or mobile device. Once the application is installed, Nx recreates, on any set of headphones, the same three-dimensional experience as listening to sound in the real world. Nx personalizes the 3D audio experience to your physical movement in space by tracking your head movements. Nx does this using either your computer’s camera or the Nx Head Tracker, a compact Bluetooth device that latches on to your headphones and follows your head movements in all directions.

OK, I want to formally apologise to waves for my previous comment. I was frustrated not because my unit didn't work, but because I believed I was getting no support.
Turns out Waves have tried to contact me numerous times, but there was some sort of glitch communication wise which my end was blocking. Being followed up personally by a support staff member to rectify the issue, not only is very appreciated but am very grateful for.
Thankyou and sorry Waves.

Hey can you please answer questions on this forum instead of pointing us to a useless "contact us" page that no-one replies to.
My head tracker meets all your system requirements, and months later no replies to emails, no help what so ever.
What gives Waves? You are a massive company, check my waves account, I've stood by you for years!
I just want my product to work, plus I have another 6 sound guys in my team alone wanting to try the thing out!

I have posted a few enquires on not receiving my 2nd unit of the Waves Nx since before October last year. After reading so many issues with the Waves Nx, I am not going to waste my time using it. As for the non delivery of my 2nd unit, I have requested for a full refund last November but as usual got no reply. It feels as good as being cheated. No more Kickstarter support from me. All hypes and empty promises.

@Waves: Hi, I have been having battery drain issue with my Waves NX tracker for a while now. How do I fix this issue. Please help!

Review from Kickstarter
@ Yutaka Hirata : Very good remark.This would be very handy for all of us to know what the headrtracker can do.
Also this licence thing is ridiculous, I was expecting something much more friendly to use. Ps :For now the tracker is still in my drawer because it is too complicated to use and get a licence to get it working.

Hi Waves Audio,
This is not the case that requires direct support, but you should periodically publish the progress of WAVES Nx's functional implementation here on a per platform basis.
Please make a table for each product grade of PC / iOS / Android. And please clarify to what extent your promised function has been implemented and when to complete. You should also state how to distribute a permanent license key indefinitely and how to renew the temporary license key. It should not be handled with individual inquiries.
You keep on making us uneasy.

I received the device finally on January 10th, 2017. After three (!) delivery attempts it arrived in Germany and was hold by the customs office (Deutscher Zoll). I've had to pay 19% VAT and an additional fee. So, I've supported this campaign with $59 but I paid $81 in total! Never again...
But I must say Waves support was very helpful and supportive!

So i guess it is my second project i backed on Kickstarter and it is not working either.At least i got
a nearly useless tracker for Windows.
Great, no more KickStarter for me..Growing more and more tired of early bright promises and final end results.

Review from Kickstarter
@Sharon Alsheh : I will do probably like you, so far i got no response for the windows app version and the result with android isunderwhelming...
I would like to be wrong but it seems like a gimmick...finally the position on the top of the headset makes it unsuitable with my high end headphones since i don't want to damage them.

Hello,
I have sent a email to the support because i don't know where to download my free PC wave nx app for windows 10 ...I only found the paid 9.99 version and the 30 trial that doesn't find my tracker(I have a surface 3 with BT 4.0 LE so it should work and the tracker is connected to the tablet) The serial number i received only gave me access to the NX Virtual Mix room plugin(i think) and i don't know how to launch it.

Received my device during first wave of shippings and still have yet to even open the box because I still can't use it with my iPhone. Starting to wonder if I should have even backed this project.

Review from Kickstarter
It seems that I am not the only one who didnt't receive an answer. I wrote a message to the Support at the beginning of November...I wrote a message here on Kickstarter a few weeks ago...no answer.
I can't connect the tracker with my computer. Tried 2 different Bluetooth Adapter.
This is really getting annoying...

Review from Kickstarter
I have made enquiries up to 23 Oct 16, about not receiving my 2nd NX unit, but with no reply at all. This is really bad customer services! Send me a full refund instead, as I don't want to waste more time in tracking this ridiculous issue.

Hey people,
I never received my Nx.
I sent you two messages already, but you didn’t reply.
I'm starting to get annoyed slowly.
What's up there?

I am very happy with the Headtracker for my iphone. The sound is great:)
I have an old Mac mid 2007 and I am still working on to get it work properly with the mac. It does not support BLE and are having a problem open/start the VMR as well but the Waves team are quick answering and has given me excellent support.
Looking foreward to have it all installed and working.
Thank you

Review from Kickstarter
@Almog
Thanks for the advise.
I would like to re-install the windows app but how? I don't have the setup file anymore and you can't download it again.
I can't connect the tracker with my desktop pc but maybe something is wrong with my bluetooth dongle. I bought a new one...let's see.

@Christoph Wenk
I had the same problems like yours
After I re-installed the application for Windows the buffer problem ended. Check of your PC support Bluetooth 4.0 because the NX head tracker only support 4.0. For my PC I bought from gearbest Bluetooth 4.0 adapter like this.
http://m.gearbest.com/usb-gadgets/pp_132021.html , it work great with Windows driver. After I downloaded the application from NX website and installed it, I saw on the upper right corner button to register the serial number with your email address. If the support team will give you an answer about installing the application after re-installed the operation system, please post it here.
I have the same question.

Review from Kickstarter
There are a few questions I am asking myself: 1. How can i re-download the windows app if for example I want to install everything on my computer again? I mean I am installing the whole system new. If i go do "get the latest version" on your Homepage there is nothing. If I go to "waves upate plan" I have to pay 10 $. 2. I got my serial key and installed the windows app but now I have a 30 day trial version? Anyone else got a trial version? 3. Like another one already wrote if you change the buffer it really messes up your screen. The Screen freezes or only the picture freezes and I can here the audio, etc. 4. I can connect the nx tracker with my laptop but not with my desktop pc. I already wrote the support and waiting for your answer there.

I have another problem. If I change the buffer-setting in my DAW, the NX-Windows-Application messes up my Windows Sounds (e.g. youtube). I have to restart the computer or undo the buffer settings to solve this. This is a big problem, since I change the buffer settings in my DAW often depending on the task (real-time-monitoring, mixing/mastering) ...

To everyone that cannot use the Windows version try to run the application with administrator permission. I had this problem and after several attempts I find this solution

I'm trying my tracker on my iphone and sounds great, tomorrow Waves my PC be installing hope it will be better still.
JGNI
Review from Kickstarter
Why wasn't it mentioned that there would be no support for iPhone 5 (or 5C as mentioned by another backer)? It has Blutooth 4.0 (BLE). Is NX taxing the phone that much? Many things were not mentioned as to compatibility with different hardware or OS's ...

Tried out the iOS app today... connected it both on my nose qc35 and audiotechnica.. app is great for the available music from the library and sound cloud.. will you support Netflix, Pandora, Amazon music, Apple Music and YouTube?
Wendigogo
Review from Kickstarter
Got my serial and installed Waves soft on Windows 10.
It sounds great but I still have to measure my head shape to personalize the sound transformation. When this feature will be added to Android app? I make fast tests and notice a significant cpu charge increase when setting buffer size to 128 and 64 : more than 30% on a I7-4600U while it's less than 4% for 256. Is this gap normal? And finally I found a bug, I got a dock for my notebook. If I use sound output of this dock sound is horrible, like if it comes from graveyard (halloween come's back) and jerky. No issue when I use notebook audio output when it's docked. But it's a pain that I have to unplug/replug my headset while I have a dock ... Enjoy!

Same here ... No email with the serial number for the Windows App.
Demo for Win isn't working in Win10 or 8 here.
IOS-Version works great!

@producersound: Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I have not received an email with a serial number for the windows application. I received the serial number for the vst-plugin some time ago.

Sadly, the iOS app doesn't work with iPhone 5c so it tells me it's not compatible when I download it even though I'm running iOS 9.3.5.

Waves NX for iOS works great. Was expecting the app to play video too, guess in the future. Good job and thanks Waves once again.
