By RS Staff July 5,2011

Utilizing a transparent vacuum tube-style design, the USB Theater Sound Xperience takes two-channel (stereo) audio and processes it with DTS Surround Sensation Headphone technology to give the effect of sounds occurring outside the boundaries of two channels. Audio cues such as special frequencies, volume intensity, and time delay help create the USB Theater Sound Xperience.

LFE (low frequency effect) mixing enables low frequencies to be mixed with front channels for increased performance, according to the company. The IOGEAR USB Theater Sound Xperience features three proprietary DTS Surround Sensation technologies: Voice Clarification Technology; Bass Enhancement Technology; and Soundstage Expansion Technology.

The USB Theater Sound Xperience offers music and movie modes that optimize the listening experience for music or dialogue and sound effects driven content, even with a pair of computer speakers. Two 3.5mm jacks are provided for stereo microphone-in and stereo headphone-out connection.

“Consumers who depend on their computers for watching DVDs and listening to music can provide a significant boost to audio performance with the IOGEAR USB Theater Sound Xperience,” said Bill Nguyen, senior marketing manager for IOGEAR. “Sometimes having five speakers or $500 headphones is simply not practical, so we created a surround sound alternative.”

Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief operating officer, DTS, Inc., added, “Simply put, sound matters to consumers who are enjoying content across many devices, especially their computers. With the recent availability of IOGEAR’s USB audio adapter, consumers will finally experience the immersive and spacious sound that they’ve always wanted from their PC devices.”

The USB Theater Sound Xperience retails for $39.95 MSRP and is available from IOGEAR.com, Amazon.com and other online retailers now.
