Innovative Headset System Brings High-Definition, 5.1 Channel Surround Sound Experience
VIBRAS Five.One from Track Scan(TM) Is Named an Official Xbox 360(R) Accessory by Microsoft
Delivering sound so detailed and powerful that it puts users inside the game, the new VIBRAS Five.One Surround Sound Headset System has received Microsoft’s approval as an official Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system accessory.
The VIBRAS Five.One, designed specifically for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live(R), uses Dolby(R) Digital AC3 and special “sound-canal” technology to create a true 5.1 channel surround sound experience. With five individually encoded discrete audio channels pulsating through 10 speakers (five in each ear cup), gamers who use the VIBRAS Five.One enjoy unprecedented sound quality.
“It’s awesome!” said Rich Heinz, a professional gamer from Port Jefferson, N.Y. “I can literally hear everything and know exactly where each sound is coming from. The overall sound quality is excellent.”
VIBRAS Five.One was developed and manufactured by Track Scan, based in Mooresville, N.C., a leading provider of headsets and audio scanners for motorsports.
The company’s scanners that allow racing fans to listen to drivers, crews, officials, and radio and TV broadcasts are available for rent or purchase at every NASCAR Sprint Cup race and U.S. IndyCar Series events.
“Whether you’re playing games, watching movies, listening to music on Xbox Live or through the console with your Zune, you will find VIBRAS Five.One to be the best performing 5.1 surround sound headset system on the market,” said Glen Aikenhead, founder of Track Scan.
The $199 VIBRAS Five.One Xbox System includes the lightweight, comfortable headset, Dolby Digital AC3 Technology decoder box, detachable microphone with an in-line voice amplifier box, optical fiber cable, AC power supply and replacement ear pad covers. A USB surround sound system for personal computers is also available at $159.
