Where there is a will, Turtle Beach finds a way. The ability to change any stereo headset into a Dolby 7.1 surround sound experience is here. Turtle Beach has announced their all new Ear Force DSS, that instantly transforms any gaming, movie-watching or other audio listening experience into an explosive experience. The Ear Force DSS is the perfect complement to the Ear Force X31, X11, XLC, Z1 and PX21 that instantly transforms any gaming, movie-watching or other audio listening experience via digital outputs from XBOX 360, PS3, PC and other sources such as Blu-ray or DVD players.

“As consumers enjoy more and more HD and 3D entertainment content, or just want to breathe new life into a favorite pair of stereo headphones, our new Ear Force DSS is the ultimate audio accessory,” said Michael Arzt, VP Marketing and Business Development, Turtle Beach. “When it’s all about getting the most-immersive gaming or movie watching experience, our new DSS sound processor is the ‘bolt-on supercharger’ that takes you there.”

Other key features of the Turtle Beach Ear Force DSS include:
· Variable bass boost to enhance the sound of explosions, gunshots and other deep bass effects to increase the realism of games and movies;
· Full-functioning headphone amplifier that can be used as a perfect complement to audiophile headphones;
· S/PDIF-to-analog converter that can down-mix multi-channel audio from digital devices to 2-channel analog headphone output. This enables digital sources to be connected to devices such as home theater receivers via standard stereo analog audio connections;
· Front panel USB pass-thru that allows other USB devices to be connected for power or data, eliminating the need for a power adapter and reducing the number of USB ports needed in a gaming or entertainment setup.
· Available AC power option from wall outlet via an optional Turtle Beach USB-to-AC power adapter (which can be purchased via TurtleBeach.com)

The Turtle Beach Ear Force DSS will be on hand at E3 in LA this June. Available now at www.turtlebeach.com for $89.95.
