A new era in the world of sound
This is what the future sounds like
The PONA sound technology eliminates the distortion that occurs each time during audio signal processing, in any audio system, due to a mismatch between the laws of physics which underlie the recording and reproduction of audio signals. This type of distortion leads to a loss of a large amount of recorded information which contemporary loudspeakers are unable to reproduce. PONA sound removes this distortion by changing the way the loudspeaker is controlled and allowing it, for the first time in history, to play the data that was previously hidden.
Before, the audio-processing equipment available on the market, regardless of its price and high technical parameters, limited the dynamics and naturalness of sound to a great extent and produced the ‘shallow’ output. PONA sound makes it possible to compensate for the sound distortion coming from the loudspeaker. With a dedicated algorithm, the reproduced output signal is the same as the one recorded and fed to the system input.
This is only a simplified, general description. To learn more about the PONA sound operating principle, please see the patent description.
PONA sound has both analogue and digital applications. Our cutting-edge technology can be used not only in new recordings and devices but can also be readily implemented to the existing audio-processing products or remastering.
The graph shows the sound wave without the use of PONA sound. The blue line represents the course of the recorded music signal (velocity of the microphone diaphragm movement), while the purple line is the velocity of the loudspeaker diaphragm movement in the classic system. There is a visible difference between the two lines. With traditional signal processing, you can see how the membrane response is flattened, higher frequencies are lost, and the signal is time-shifted.
The graph on the right shows the speaker response (purple) with the use of PONA sound technology. It is clear that the phase alignment of the input and output signals. There are only slight deviations on the vertical plane, caused by the non-linearity of the converters themselves, but they do not have a significant impact on the final output.

Is PONA sound only applicable in digital form?
No, PONA sound can be applied in both digital and analogue form.
Can PONA sound be used during a concert?
Of course. Our technology works in all conditions where an acoustic wave is converted into an electrical signal and back into an acoustic wave.
Can PONA sound improve any music type?
The end result is not determined by the type of music but by the quality of the input material. The fewer distortions, the better. As our research shows, any interference with the musical material by means of frequency correction causes audible distortions. That is why, it is best to record music first and then make your changes – only then can you avoid undesirable interference with the recording.
Does the technology depend on the speakers used?
No, it doesn’t. It is a universal method that changes the way the signal is controlled and is independent of the loudspeaker itself. Naturally, the better the speaker, the more audible the effect.
Can PONA sound be used twice: during recording and playback?
No, it can't. The technology should only be used once: either during production or during playback.
