DTS announced the global launch of DTS Sound Unbound, a new application that supports Microsoft Spatial sound through DTS Headphone:X and DTS:X. Using Microsoft Spatial sound together with the latest version of Microsoft Windows 10, DTS offers “ultra-realistic, 3D audio that renders clear, rich, and dynamic audio for the most engaging gaming experiences optimized by DTS audio technology for speakers and headphones” according to the company.

The new application was designed to work with a wide array of spatial gaming titles, and the decoder works natively with Windows 10. Already a standard solution in millions of devices around the world, DTS Headphone:X includes advanced spatial headphone integration that renders sounds from above, below, and close to the player with exceptional localized sound cues for more immersive play.

“Building on our continued commitment to serve gamers with audio innovation, DTS seized on an exceptional opportunity to collaborate with Microsoft to leverage its spatial sound framework and bring a new and exciting audio solution to market,” said Sumat Mehra, senior vice president and general manager of Xperi’s mobile business. “DTS Sound Unbound is the result of this valuable partnership and represents a meaningful step forward to extend our gaming audio lead even further with this tight integration inside Windows 10. With ongoing content support from Microsoft delivered to the largest ecosystem in the world, DTS Sound Unbound will enable an unrivaled and immersive gaming experience, benefitting not only DTS’ many licensing partners, but consumers alike.”

Using DTS Sound Unbound, users can also install the DTS:X audio decoder, now available for download through the Microsoft Store. The audio decoder natively integrates within Microsoft Windows 10 devices to enable playback of DTS-encoded content through media players or web browsers running Windows 10.

DTS Sound Unbound launched this week supporting the latest Microsoft Windows 10 for PCs. It is also expected to be released on Microsoft’s Xbox at a future date.
