Asus launched HP-100U personal Dolby home theater set

ASUS-HP-100UASUS, the leader in computer-based Hi-Fi solutions and acclaimed producer of CES award-winning Xonar audio products, today launched its innovative HP-100U personal Dolby home theater set. Comprising a gorgeous, lab-tuned pair of headphones, a Xonar U1 external audio device and a high quality array microphone, the HP-100U is the total audio solution for discerning listeners who brook no compromise when it comes to PC or Mac audio.

Outstanding Home Theater Sound

The HP-100U comes with the lauded Xonar U1, a uniquely-styled external audio device that harnesses the power of four major Dolby technologies to deliver high fidelity, interference-free PC audio. Furthermore, it supports DirectSound, EAX 2.0 and Open AL acceleration for the best audio experience in Windows Vista® / Windows XP™ and also on Mac platforms. It is even equipped with a Hi-Fi headphone amplifier for improved clarity when driving headphones.


Outstanding PC and Mac Compatibility

The HP-100U is tailored to meet the needs of the rapidly growing population of users who consume audio visual entertainment on notebooks. This is particularly significant for Mac users, who have previously been starved of Dolby solutions due to compatibility issues. The HP-100U addresses these needs emphatically, delivering immersive Dolby Home Theater audio across both Windows and Mac OS X-based notebooks.


Outstanding Looks and Comfort

The HP-100U is available in four colors, paying fitting tribute to consumers’ individual needs and personalities, and matching its astounding audio performance with an equally astounding aesthetic. The leatherette earcups cover the user’s ears snugly and an elastic headband provides stress-free comfort over prolonged periods of audio enjoyment. The unique earcups also provide good isolation from environmental noise. The headphone’s soundstage is specially tuned for Dolby Headphone, resulting in a much more believable and engaging surround sound experience as compared to normal headphones. Complete immersion is maintained via the HP-100U’s interference-free Hi-Fi acoustics.


Outstanding Clarity with Advanced Array Microphone

Adding to an already impressive package, the HP-100U also comes with an advanced array microphone with noise-cancelling capabilities—perfect for crystal clear voice delivery over VoIP applications such as Skype, MSN Messenger and QQ, as well as during multiplayer gaming.
