DTS, a global leader in high-definition audio solutions and a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Corporation (NASDAQ: XPER) (“Xperi”), is pleased to announce the integration of DTS:X® Ultra audio technology in the newest product from ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG), the worldwide leader in gaming phones.
DTS:X Ultra technology offers gamers a competitive edge by adding accurate sound sources in a 3D environment relative to the player, improving the user’s ability to hear and locate opponents and identify other key environmental sounds. Additionally, the technology supports all immersive audio formats and is designed to deliver enhanced bass response, loudness, and pristine audio clarity optimized for ROG headphones and phone speakers.
“DTS:X Ultra is quickly becoming a ‘must-have’ solution for mobile gaming devices and is especially important for gamers who play battle-royale style and FPS games,” said Sumat Mehra, senior vice president, general manager of mobile at Xperi. “The ROG Phone II represents the highest quality gaming phone available today, and we are proud to continue integrating DTS’s leading audio technology to deliver the best immersive experiences.”
