Not sure if anyone has seen this yet.

It doesn't mention to much about how they actually do it, but it looks pretty cool.

It comes down to implementation and all of that, but ...

I wish Dolby do something similar, and that this be integrated into audio receivers, and mainstream dvd/blu-ray players. It has potential IMHO.

Headphone:X takes advantage of the advanced properties of the DTS-HD® audio codec, which allows us to precisely simulate the experience of being in any movie theater or the movie's mixing stage, and fine tuning that experience to an exact seat location within the room

 

wow..That would be impressive. I am used to watch my blu-rays in headphone (stereo) so that i don't disturb others. This is a wonderful news for me. There is no mention of the software/hardware that is going to support it yet?

Are they going to offer this as software eventually?

For anyone interested, DTS Headphone X is now free to try on iOS and Android phones via an app. It is tied to the release of the Man of Steel soundtrack. You can also buy a CD with a code to get the soundtrack within the app, but sound files outside the app are not available, it seems.

I have tried it and notice that the effect is pronounced but it also changes the frequency response of the content quite a bit. For voice it is fine, but music is less enjoyable as a result. I also have been listening to headphones more than loudspeakers lately, so maybe my brain is more tuned to headphone listening as a result.

Pretty cool!!!!! beerchug.gif

 

I liked it!
 

EDIT: Well... it might need some more work actually. May work better with the HD239...
