You can use a filter to make just about any image look good. And now there's a company that wants to do the same for audio.
The company AfterMaster, an audio technology company partly owned by Justin Timberlake, has launched a tiny chip at CES that can be built into any piece of hardware to greatly enhance the sound quality for any device.
"We set out to do something big, we set out to change audio in a big way," said company CEO Larry Ryckman, president and CEO.
Dozens of audio enhancements have been made over the years, but every audio enhancement available today hurts something about the sound in some way, Ryckman said. AfterMaster, though, set out to find the perfect filter for sound, Ryckman said.
"We found what we think is the secret sauce. We found a way to take any kind of audio and make it sound better," he said.
