DTS has confirmed with us that their new Headphone:X technology will be incorporated within select models of media headsets from Turtle Beach. This announcement marks the first products to be designed featuring the highly anticipated technology from DTS.
“Headphone:X delivers a listening environment so realistic that users will feel more immersed in their favorite games and movies than if they were listening through a home theater system”
“Headphone:X delivers a listening environment so realistic that users will feel more immersed in their favorite games and movies than if they were listening through a home theater system,” said Richard Kulavich, chief technology officer at Turtle Beach. “DTS Headphone:X is the most innovative sound technology I’ve heard in years.”
If you are new to the achievement, DTS Headphone:X is an advanced technology that reproduces the acoustics of a high quality audio production studio over headphones. The technology expands and focuses sound far beyond the boundaries of the listener’s headphones, allowing them to hear their favorite content as if it was coming from several high-quality loudspeakers located around and above them, with a higher degree of accuracy than was ever possible before. With benefits for both producers and consumers, DTS Headphone:X presents a whole new way to experience entertainment content over headphones.
“From the moment we launched Headphone:X at CES this year, we knew we had a game changer,” said Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief operating officer at DTS. “We have seen an overwhelming demand for this technology and it is with great enthusiasm that we get to announce this collaboration with Turtle Beach to launch the first consumer-facing product to feature the technology.”
DTS Headphone: X-equipped headsets from Turtle Beach are scheduled to be available later this year.
