Dolby Surround Sound Processor

The Ear Force DSS Dolby® surround sound processor transforms any stereo analog headset into full, immersive surround sound for playing XBOX, PS3 or PC games and watching movies with Blu-ray or DVD players. It is the perfect headset or headphone accessory for audiophiles everywhere. It works with any set of standard stereo analog headphones and is the perfect complement to the Turtle Beach Ear Force series of stereo gaming headsets (XLC, XL1, X11, X31, P11, PX21, PX3, Z1, and Z2). If you're looking around for audio accessories for your headset or headphones, look no further.

The optical digital input easily connects to a game console or media player for Dolby® 7.1 channel surround sound and the analog input can also be used to upgrade analog stereo audio sources to Dolby® Pro Logic IIx for virtual surround sound. A bass boost control adds sub-woofer effects for enhanced realism to any audio source.

With the Ear Force DSS, video game and movie fans will be able to hear distinct audio events happening all around them, greatly enhancing the overall experience and rewarding gamers with a new found competitive edge. DSS users playing games and watching movies on their game consoles will actually hear the 7.1 surround sound from certain audio tracks via additional “hidden” channels called Dolby® EX.

Reviews
  • 411 Mania

    "The DSS offers a great surround sound option in a small package..."

    "Turtle Beach has another solid product that can deliver..."

    8.0 - Very Good

  • BWOne

    "The Ear Force DSS does deliver on what it claims to do and that is give you the 7.1 surround sound experience in a stereo headphone."
  • The Co-Operatives

    "The already impressive sound range of the X11’s skyrockets into glorious 7.1 (or Dolby Pro Logic IIx without optical) and honestly sounds phenomenal. We tested the unit on PC, PS3 and 360, and it performed well on all of them."

    9.5/10
  • IamTheAntiMartyr

    "I literally took off my headset because I thought my Surround Sound speakers were on at the same time."
