This paper discusses sound reproduction using a surface nearfield source, which is categorized between headphones and loudspeakers providing also a natural audio-tactile augmentation to the listening experience. The surface nearfield source can be embedded for example in the headrest as a personal sound system. In this sense it has similarities to headphones, but there is no need to wear a device. The surface nearfield source has also several other advantages, such as suppressed room effect and haptic effects, which enhance the bass perception. Differences and similarities of the surface nearfield source with open and closed headphones, mobile device speakers, and regular loudspeakers are itemized. The surface nearfield source is applicable to e.g. movie theater couches and car seats.
