DTS Announces DTS:X Ultra Audio Support in ASUS ROG Phone


First dedicated gaming phone to receive DTS:X Ultra immersive audio technology this fall

DTS, a global leader in high-definition audio solutions and a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Corporation (XPER) (“Xperi”), is pleased to announce upcoming support for DTS:X® Ultra audio technology in the new ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) gaming-focused ROG Phone. DTS:X Ultra technology delivers a premium immersive audio experience for gamers through any pair of connected headphones. The feature will be available via an over-the-air (OTA) update later this fall.

DTS:X Ultra technology provides gamers with a competitive edge by delivering console-quality audio on a mobile phone through both headphones and speakers. By accurately representing sound sources in a 3D environment relative to the listener, DTS:X Ultra technology helps consumers to hear and locate their opponents and other key environmental sounds. Additionally, the technology supports all immersive audio formats and has additionally been designed to deliver enhanced bass response, loudness, and pristine audio clarity tuned for ROG headphones and phone speakers.

“The ROG Phone takes mobile gaming to the next level with its advanced design and technology, and we are proud to deliver impactful, immersive sound over headphones through the DTS:X Ultra solution,” said Geir Skaaden, chief products and services officer at Xperi. “We want to help gamers stay one step ahead of their competition from start to finish of every game, and DTS:X Ultra technology achieves that.”

“We designed the ROG Phone specifically to revolutionize the gaming experience for mobile gamers,” said Bryan Chang, general manager of the ASUS Mobile Business Unit. “Now thanks to our collaboration with DTS, the ROG Phone delivers an unprecendented audio experience for all mobile gamers.”
