Only good words have been said about Wavears LE for iPhone – a 3D sound enhancer in a music player. But I had no chance to test it. While it is possible to download the application through CYDIA, it doesn`t work – when you open the app, it says “, new version is out, go to website, download update, blah blah”. When you go to their official website, it states that the iPhone version is in development process and not available yet.
How to run it? Simply go to Settings > General > Date & Time > Set Date & Time. Just change the year to 2008. Now you can open the Wavears LE app since it just checks for date. No idea what date, but WavearsLE checks if it has passed some specific date where it requires you to update.
My personal thoughts of the app – it just changes the sound with some kind of 3D effect, but the quality is low and I really didn`t like it. Also the music player is not that finished as original iPod for iphone, though it shares music/albums/playlists with the built-in player.
If you want some semi-official description, here is an excerpt:
Place your favorite musicians around you. wavearsLE plays your tracks in surround quality so you feel like you are in a live performance. Usually when you put your headphones on, music stays inside your head. sonic emotion puts an end on that. With wavearsLE your musicians appear outside of your head, just like in reality.
What’s more, it synchronizes it with your iPod music library, so you don’t have to worry about uploading music. With great sound, crispy highs and punchy bass wavearsLE is the only music player you will want to use with your iPod/iPhone.
- The only true 3D ‘out of head’ experience with just standard
- Plays stereo tracks in surround sound
- Synchronizes with the iPod music library
Please note that on 2.1 wavearsLE currently does not play any format other than wav. This should be fixed in a future update.
You may install wavearsLE using Cydia.app.
