Surround Sound in StreetGear clothing

P R E S S   R E L E A S E

Sandberg has achieved something really amazing with the latest member of the Sandberg StreetGear range. It's a true Surround Sound Headset with 4 separate speaker units in each of the ear pads to provide a total Surround Sound experience.

The first thing you notice when you unpack the headset is the weight. It's big, feels nice to the touch – and it's heavy! Considering there are no fewer than eight advanced speaker units in the headset, it's no wonder it weighs a bit. That's not something you notice when you are wearing it, though, as it has a very nice fit and is well padded. You feel snugly wrapped up.

And then it hits you! The sound experience. Whether you're in the middle of a concert hall, a cockpit, a war zone or a racing car, you can now benefit from the direction of the sound. You can be closed off from the world around you and experience total immersion. It is quite amazing how proper sound can enhance the overall experience.

As ever, Sandberg gives you that little bit extra, so this system works on almost all computers. You don't even need to have a Surround Sound card already. Sandberg has incorporated a complete Surround Sound card in a box on the cable, where there are also controls for each channel and the master volume.

A good microphone has also been provided.

The package includes the acclaimed Xear 3D Surround software, which people know from the Sandberg Sound Box 7.1. Xear 3D enables each channel in the headset to be very precisely controlled and also provides a number of effect and equalizer functions.

Erling Hoff Petersen, Director of Sales and Marketing at Sandberg A/S, has this to say about the new product. "With this headset, the StreetGear range has grown up. A Surround Sound headset is of course not intended to be a street accessory. It is definitely something that you use at home. With this product, we want to appeal to the more mature element of the Street segment – the 20-29 age bracket. In our part of the world, this segment does not live 24/7 on the street – they also have a home where they spend time on multimedia experiences. This is a quality-conscious section of the population which has strong purchasing power and an ability and willingness to invest in a unique experience."

The Sandberg USB Surround Headset 5.1 is already available in the launch shops. The website will show you where the nearest one is.
