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.
