IOGEAR’s USB Theater Sound Xperience Brings Virtual Surround Sound to Your Stereo Speakers

Like watching movies on your laptop or PC? You might want to check out IOGEAR’s new Windows-only $39.95 USB Theater Sound Xperience. It’s essentially a USB audio processor encased in a transparent vacuum tube and does three things mainly: 1) it enhances signal clarity to improve the audio quality of dialog from a Blu-ray or DVD movie; 2) restores “the perception of fundamental low-frequency tones by dynamically augmenting harmonics,” thus giving users improved bass performance; 3) creates a phantom center channel for improved clarity and audio crispness. I have no idea how this magic works, but IOGEAR says its DTS Surround Sensation processor will work with both 2-channel and 5.1-channel audio sources over a pair of stereo speakers or headphones.

Features:

  • Connects to your computer’s USB 2.0 port and delivers virtual surround sound through your stereo headphones or stereo speakers
  • Movie mode – Experience being right there in the middle of your favorite movies
  • Music mode – Listen to your music as it comes to life in total surround sound
  • LFE mixing – Enables low end frequencies to be mixed with front channels for superior performance
  • Provides two 3.5mm jacks for:
    - Stereo Stereo Microphone-In
    - Stereo Headphone-Out
  • Classic Transparent Vacuum Tube Design with soft blue LED vintage glow
  • DTS Surround Sensation | Headphone™ simulates surround sound through headphones
    Voice Clarification Technology: Enhances the signal clarity to improve the audio quality of dialog derived from Blu-ray Disc or standard DVD
    Bass Enhancement Technology: Restores the perception of fundamental low-frequency tones by dynamically augmenting harmonics, yielding improved bass performance without the additional hardware costs of adding a subwoofer
    Soundstage Expansion Technology: Broadens the soundstage and creates a phantom center channel for improved clarity and audio crispness
