Get Ready Gamers, New TRITTON USB Headphones Featuring True 5.1 Surround Sound Now Available

New Audio Xtreme PC Delivers Immersive Gaming Experience With Eight Speakers, Adjustable Microphone, and Rumble Technology

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 23, 2007 -- TRITTON Technologies today announced the Audio Xtreme PC (AXPC) True 5.1 Surround Sound USB gaming headphones, giving PC gamers the ultimate 5.1 audio experience. The AXPC is the follow-up product to the company's highly popular AX360 gaming headphones for XBOX, Playstation 2 and 3, and other consoles (which connect via digital optical or digital coaxial ports). The AXPC is available today for $79.99 MSRP through TRITTON's distributor network.

Most new games and movies are created with 5.1 channels of audio. While other headphones may claim 5.1 sound, simulated or emulated 5.1 deprives gamers of truly experiencing all 5.1 channels of audio and special effects.

The AXPC features a total of 8 speakers, 4 in each ear cup (center, front, rear, and subwoofer). Integrated into the in-line audio controller are volume adjustments for the individual sound fields, master volume control, volume mute and mic mute. The audio controller also has a specialized chipset that amplifies each of the 8 individual speakers ensuring optimum sound quality. Located on the left ear cup is a removable microphone that is ideal for online gaming and also for use with VoIP phones such as Skype, GoogleTalk, and Yahoo IM.

The USB 2.0/1.1 interface allows for plug-n-play installation and true digital sound quality. If you are listening to audio that was recorded in stereo, included software will allow you to simulate 2.1, and up to 7.1 surround sound. The integrated Rumble Technology will blow listeners minds, giving a more realistic and engrossing game play.

"The AX360 headphones paved the way for a new generation of high-performance, true surround sound gaming headsets, and now the AXPC packages the most advanced audio technology for PC gamers," said Chris Von Huben, president of TRITTON Technologies. "These things are truly amazing, allowing any gamer to immerse themselves in an audio nirvana, hearing and feeling everything that transpires in the game with depth and spatial accuracy."

Gamers can select from 23 different EQ settings to customize their listening experience whether it is a game, music or a movie. With the AXPC, users can tell their teammates when someone is sneaking up on them, enjoy a movie in its original audio format, hear a CD like they have never heard it before, or place calls using their preferred chat client, all with one headset.
