Sennheiser Surrounder Brings Surround Sound to the Computer Gaming Experience
Sennheiser�s new surrounder 3D sound collar weighs only 35 ounces and rests comfortably on the shoulders, a revolutionary surround sound system that turns computer gaming into a realistic adventure. The latest in a line of twelve new Sennheiser products at CES 99, the Surrounder is a futuristic designed sound collar providing true, four-channel surround sound. Two directional systems located at the front reproduce the main channels (L, R) with frequencies greater than 300 Hz while two broad band systems in the back reproduce the rear channels (SL, SR) and the low frequency proportion of the main channels.
The system can be used anywhere and the sound collar of the system connects to a sound card or Dolby Surround decoder, and rests on the shoulders from the front. Amplifier electronics are housed internally, and volume/bass controls are situated at the front for easy access. For maximum comfort for extended wear, Sennheiser also offers adjustable shoulder pads for a custom fit. The Surrounder 3D sound collar retails for $299.95.
