DUBAI, UAE: Taking a few brief moments to step away from the stresses of the day can make all the difference to how we feel. O Relax, an app offered for free along with ColorOS12.1 on the latest launched flagship OPPO Find X5 Pro, offers a peaceful sanctuary in your mobile phone — a private meditation space where you can take time out to enjoy relaxing sounds, helping you to relieve stress, improve sleep and sharpen your focus. When you feel like too tired to look around, you can use your ears to feel the world.

The power of sound

There have been various studies that show us how sound is intrinsically linked to our emotional wellbeing and can have a big impact on our stress levels. It’s a truly powerful experience and can help regulate our breathing, relieve anxiety, improve our mood, and focus better.

As an industry leader in sound technology, with a rich history in audio production, OPPO knows the impact that sound can have on our feelings and emotions, ever since it released its first MP3 player in 2005. That’s what makes O Relax such an important feature, and why it’s been built into ColorOS 12.1 in Find X5 Pro.

Through a combination of audio-visual-haptic feedback, O Relax helps users to release their stress. This multi-sensory experience not only deepens our connection to the audio we’re hearing but also offers things to see, touch and feel, across all features of the app.

Explore the city through sound

One of O Relax’s key features is Sounds of the City, which offers users something that can’t be found in any other app. So far, O Relax has recorded sound samples of the day-to-day occurrences in six iconic cities around the world.

Every city is unique and the sounds that make up its identity are stitched together from many different components. That could be the hustle and bustle of a busy subway, friends chatting in a cafe against the background whir of the coffee machine, or children laughing as they play in the street.

In order to bring each city to life in an authentic way, the O Relax development team partnered with professional production agency Musicity to capture all the different sounds of these vibrant cities in different countries, editing them together into a single soundtrack for a snapshot of the city through sound.

Not just that, but with a digital map on screen that helps users to visualise exactly where the sounds were captured, Sound of the City helps users to deepen their connection and experience with the city while listening to the sound.

Through a combination of sound, vision and innovation, Sounds of the City aims to take people away from their current moment, helping them to relax and feel reinvigorated through the realm of discovery and exploration. For the times you need an escape from your surroundings, Sounds of the City can help you to do that.

Personalising your sound experience

Alongside Sounds of the City, O Relax also offers a variety of comforting music tracks and ambient nature sounds, to help clear the mind and reset your focus. White noise is a crucial part of this offering, which is proven to block out the distracting sounds around us to help improve sleep and maximise relaxation.

White noise doesn’t have to be clinical or abstract though. Should you prefer, O Relax uses the sounds of white noise in nature, such as the sound of rain or waves, to help deliver those moments of calm.

All of O Relax’s sounds and soundtracks are chosen and produced by OPPO’s master tuner, who conducts experiments on the different combinations of tone, rhythm and audible frequencies to find the perfect balance. However, if none of the pre-selected sounds are helping you find your calm, O Relax offers multi-track mixing to create the perfect personalised sound experience for you.

Experience a deeper connection

Through the combination of audio and haptic feedback, O Relax’s deep breathing exercises and relaxation games are designed for users to feel calm. They can help users to regulate their breathing, can calm and focus the mind through touch and response, or simply offer a more tactile, screen-free experience if preferred.

With the strongest haptic motor available on an Android device today, Find X5 Pro provides you with better O Relax user experience than ever before, generating natural, crisp and quiet feedback with every touch and delivering a further dimension to the audio and visual experience.

With precise placement and movement of individual sounds, the addition of Dolby Atmos panoramic audio helps to place a listener at the heart of the sound for an even more powerful and moving experience, offering breathtaking sound quality, with impressive clarity, richness and detail like no other. With O Relax, OPPO brings together this human-centric approach with its passion for audio to create an experience that brings a much-needed moment of calm back to busy lives. All we have to do is take it.
