IOGEAR + DTS - The Next Evolution in PC Sound

IOGEAR's USB Theater Sound Xperience is the first USB Audio adapter providing DTS® Surround Sensation | Headphone™ technology.

The USB Theater Sound Xperience provides a complete virtual audio-processing solution that brings your movie and music experiences to life from a pair of stereo headphones or stereo speakers. It takes your 2-channel (stereo) audio and processes it with DTS Surround Sensation to create virtual surround sound through your 2 stereo speakers.

Audio that is already encoded in 5.1-channels gains even more life with the LFE feature resulting in a three-dimensional wall of sound that exceeds the limitations of just two speakers, making one believe that sounds are occurring outside the boundaries of the two channels.

The classic transparent vacuum tube style design is small and suitable for your notebook and on the go needs.

The IOGEAR USB Theater Sound Xperience allows you to enjoy DTS virtual surround sound anywhere, anytime. It is the perfect audio companion for people who listen to music or watch movies on their computers or laptops. Enjoy a virtual surround sound from your standard stereo headphone jack.

How surround sound works
 

Our bodies were designed to perceive sound in three dimensions. Our ability to locate sounds depends on the way that sound waves from the same source differ from each other as they reach the left and right ear. We depend on special audio cues: variance in frequencies, intensity of volume, and the time it takes these sounds to reach our ears. From a mix of all these cues, we determine the location of each individual sound and the type of "room" or sound field image we are in.

DTS® Surround Sensation™ analyzes and processes the frequencies, volume intensity, and time delay; while taking into account the distance between your ears, and the distance of your upper body and torso. The specially processed sound comes out of the two speakers (or headphones) and voila!—you experience a surround effect!

 
How It Works  
DTS® Surround Sensation™ processing contains significant psycho-acoustic information that alters human perception, making one believe that sounds are actually occurring outside the boundaries of the two-speaker system or
headphones.
