There are few things more important than immersive sound, especially when you’re playing a shooter with a pretty solid campaign, like Gears 5. That’s why I’m happy to deliver this piece of news: ASUS ROG motherboards will come with the best spatial sound gamers can imagine – DTS Sound Unbound.
As you may know, DTS Sound Unbound launched as a 3D audio app on the Microsoft Store in late September. By starting a free trial, you can unlock and later buy DTS Headphone:X and DTS:X, getting a clear, rich, dynamic spatial audio experience even if you use normal stereo headphones.
Here’s how to download it and use it:
That’s not all. After enabling Windows gamers to have an immersive listening experience with a quick install, DTS teamed up with ASUS. Their mission: to give ASUS users the unique opportunity of enjoying enhanced spatial audio.
Indeed, all PC gamers that will get an ASUS ROG motherboard with AMD X570 chipset will also get built-in DTS Sound Unbound. Plus, all future ROG motherboards will come with this audio solution from the get-go.
Had trouble listening to Marcus and the others in campaign? Or found it hard to savor your victory after a big wave because the audio was off?
Well, it seems your struggling times are over.
DTS Sound Unbound is – though – bound to be the best-in-class native solution on the market. It’s got advanced audio trace layout techniques to mitigate noise, and a host of software options that push the sound quality of onboard audio to the very limits.
“ASUS ROG stands for pushing the boundaries of immersive game play. As gamers increasingly demand more performance from their devices, ROG is pleased to be first-to-market with the integration of DTS’ latest generation of audio technologies, now with support for Microsoft Spatial sound, into our industry-leading gaming motherboards. By utilizing the Microsoft Spatial sound framework, DTS has created a best-in-class, immersive, 3D gaming audio solution that unlocks both the power of its DTS Headphone:X and DTS:X decoder technology to deliver an unrivaled gaming experience. Together, ROG and DTS are setting a new standard for most innovative, hardcore gaming hardware and providing gamers with the competitive edge they seek.”, said Joe Hsieh, COO, Open Platform Business Unit at ASUS.
Of course, Gears 5 is not the only game you’ll think DTS Sound Unbound was made for. Other titles like Forza Horizon 4, Borderlands 3, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will benefit from this cutting-edge spatial sound solution.
