Utilizing a transparent vacuum tube-style design, the USB Theater Sound Xperience takes two-channel audio and processes it with DTS Surround Sensation | Headphone to give the effect of sounds occurring outside the boundaries of the two channels. Audio that is already encoded in 5.1-channels allegedly gains more life with the LFE mixing, which enables low frequencies to be mixed with front channels for superior performance.

Three proprietary DTS Surround Sensation technologies are present in the IOGEAR USB Theater Sound Xperience:
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, reportedly 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

The USB Theater Sound Xperience offers music and movie modes that place concentration on 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.

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