FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Personal Home Theater System
Listener-Tailored Multi-Channel Sound Via Headphones
exclusive EXOFIELD out-of-head localization sound field processing
headphone users can
experience immersive 7.1.4-channel sound.
- LAS VEGAS, January 6,
2020 – JVCKENWOOD Corporation today announced a personal wireless
home theater system that delivers a full, multi-channel sound field
when using headphones.
The JVC XP-EXT1 uses JVC’s
proprietary EXOFIELD out-of-head localization sound field processing
technology to allow headphone users to experience the full effect of
multi-channel sound sources, including Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X®.
What's more, the sound field is optimized for each listener and
listening environment to ensure the most realistic and immersive
The XP-EXT1 is comprised of
two components – headphones and a digital processor – and a
companion mobile app. Using microphones built into the headphones,
and the dedicated smartphone app, users measure the acoustic
characteristics of the listening room, speakers, and the listener’s
ears and face. These measurements are compared to a database of
acoustic measurements, and a matching algorithm is selected to
provide a listening experience tailored to each individual’s
listening environment. As a result, home theater enthusiasts can
enjoy multichannel audio up to 7.1.4 channels using headphones, but
with the sensation that the sound is coming from virtual speakers.
All without disturbing others nearby. The system also supports
up-mixing of two-channel and 5.1-channel material to 7.1.4 channels.
The headphones connect to
the processor through 2.4/5GHz dual band wireless transmission, with
automatic selection of the band less likely to experience
interference. In addition, the processor has an HDMI input/output
terminal that supports output to 4K-compatible displays and
projectors, and three HDMI inputs to allow connection of up to three
devices. Settings for up to four users can be stored, and settings
can be fine-tuned remotely using the app, including selection of one
of four sound modes – Cinema, Music, Game and Custom.
- The headphones feature
a 40mm high magnetic force neodymium driver unit and large soft ear
pads for comfortable listening over many hours.
JVC XP-EXT1 EXOFIELD wireless home theater system will be available
in spring for $999.95.
