Hôtel de la Marine – The Confidant 3D Audio Engine
Located Place de la Concorde in Paris, the Hôtel de la Marine is an outstanding historical monument from the 18th century. The venue opened its door to the public in June 2021, unveiling a unique head-tracked 3D audio experience.

The Hôtel de la Marine offers four guided tours based on dynamic binaural audio. Immersive soundtracks were created by Studio Radio France and l’Agence du Verbe, combining native binaural, dynamic audio objects and ambisonics.

The headset, called The Confidant, was conceived by RSF in partnership with Noise Makers and Studio Radio France. Containing a low-latency IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) and Noise Makers 3D audio engine, the Confidant guides visitors through the apartments and reception rooms, delivering a head-tracked binaural experience. This leads to a unique guided tour, plunging visitors into the monument’s history.
