CALABASAS, Calif., June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — DTS Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and audio enhancement technologies, today announced that its DTS Headphone:X™ surround sound technology is being incorporated into headphone designs from G-Star Industrial Co Ltd, a leading global original design manufacturer of headsets and headphones for the PC and gaming industries. The new DTS Headphone:X-powered headphones will be on display and demonstrated at Computex in Taiwan, June 3-4, 2014.

“When it came to offering our brand partners new headphones that deliver a radically enhanced listening experience, working with DTS to integrate our product line with the DTS Headphone:X technology was an obvious solution,” said Leo Shih, G-Star product manager. “We believe that DTS Headphone:X will quickly become a standard audio technology for PC and video game enthusiasts who want to be immersed in the on-screen action of their favorite games, and that consumers will also enjoy the way the technology allows them to experience their music and movies.”
“Quality of experience is one of the most important factors to consumers when purchasing any CE product, especially headphones,” said Brian Towne, president, Asia-Pacific, DTS. “DTS Headphone:X is one of the most exciting technologies that DTS has ever brought to market because of the completely unique experience that the technology delivers.
