Kaliber Gaming, IOGEAR's brand of dedicated gaming products, is proud to present the new Saga Virtual Surround Sound Gaming Headset for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and mobile devices such as smartphone and tablets. If you have ever listened to a multichannel home theater system you know how much greater the experience becomes when you unleash the depth of a surround system. For this reason the Saga features a built-in Dolby Pro Logic IIx Virtual Surround processor that converts your stereo audio signal into a virtual multichannel experience that can be enjoyed from almost any audio source, taking your music, movie or gaming experience to the next level!
IOGEAR's new Saga Virtual Surround Gaming Headset is a feature-packed, multi-functional headset that in addition to providing an incredible home gaming experience also makes it easy to bring your music and movies to life while on the go. Whether you're out walking the dog, at the gym, or taking a business flight, the Saga Virtual Surround Gaming Headset provides an immersive experience that puts you in the best seat in the house. The Saga also features a comfortable yet stylistic design, so you can enjoy everything it has to offer without looking like a sports commentator that just escaped the broadcast booth.
The Dolby Pro Logic IIx technology built into the Saga Virtual Surround Gaming Headset takes stereo audio and expands it to a virtual 7.1 channel surround sound experience using only two speakers. Digital signal processing (DSP) creates the illusion of being inside a room with multiple speakers placed around you, for an experience that no traditional stereo headset can match. Saga's Dolby processing is natively compatible with 5.1-channel content encoded into your audio and video source material, to make games, movies or television shows sound incredible. But as great as that sounds, Dolby Pro Logic IIx isn't just for use with surround encoded content- it also delivers a remarkable surround experience even from stereo source material, especially music and games.
Dolby's headphone processing technology works by producing the "sonic signature" of a correctly placed and tuned loudspeaker system that puts you in the sweet spot of the action. Complete with the complex simulation of audible surface reflections, the Saga's Dolby's processor creates the illusion of being within a much larger soundfield, which as a side benefit relieves much of the ear fatigue common with prolonged headphone use. With the Saga Virtual Surround Gaming Headset you will not only enjoy your games, movies or music in multichannel surround, but you will also be able to enjoy them for much longer than with conventional headphones.
There are three different listening modes available to deliver the best possible overall experience whether you are gaming, watching a movie, listening to music or other content. The Gaming/Movie mode enhances spatial depth and improves surround envelopment for a much more realistic experience. The Music Mode improves directionality of musical recordings by pulling vocals out into the front, while opening up the sound stage for a more lifelike sound. The Normal Mode bypasses the Dolby processing for listening to mono sources such as audiobooks, or for when a plain, uncolored sound experience is desired.
The Saga Virtual Surround Gaming Headset has a built-in microphone that allows you to communicate with other online players while gaming, or take calls without the need for an external microphone when used with your smartphone, tablet or computer. The built-in microphone is easily bypassed with the off switch when muting is required.
