Track Scan Introduces The Vibras 5.1 Headset System For XBox 360 » read source
Track Scan started in 1993 by racing enthusiasts to share an experience that still is not available in any other sport. With their products, people can listen to the conversations between drivers and their crews, race officials as well as the radio and TV broadcasts, during the race and practice sessions. The scanner adds another dimension to the race: the emotions and personalities of racing.
Track Scan has recently released the new VIBRAS 5.1 Surround Sound Headset System, to deliver sound so detailed and powerful that it puts users inside the game. The Product has received Microsoft's approval as an official Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system accessory. The VIBRAS Five.One is created specifically for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live, uses Dolby Digital AC3 and special "sound-canal" technology to create a true 5.1 channel surround sound experience. With five individually encoded discrete audio channels pulsating through 10 speakers (five in each ear cup), gamers who use the VIBRAS 5.1 enjoy unparalleled sound quality.
Rich Heinz, a professional gamer from Port Jefferson, N.Y. Declared "It's awesome! I can literally hear everything and know exactly where each sound is coming from. The overall sound quality is excellent."
VIBRAS 5.1 was developed and manufactured by Track Scan. The company's scanners that allow racing fans to listen to drivers, crews, officials, and radio and TV broadcasts are available for rent or purchase at every NASCAR Sprint Cup race and U.S. IndyCar Series events. The system can be utilized with Xbox LIVE using the professionally created microphone. Users can chat online or while playing a game.
Glen Aikenhead, founder of Track Scan noted "Whether you're playing games, watching movies, listening to music on Xbox Live or through the console with your Zune, you will find VIBRAS 5.1 to be the best performing 5.1 surround sound headset system on the market".
The VIBRAS 5.1 Xbox System costs $199.99 and includes the lightweight, comfortable headset, Dolby Digital AC3 Technology decoder box, detachable microphone with an in-line voice amplifier box, optical fiber cable, AC power supply and replacement ear pad covers. A USB surround sound system for personal computers is also available at $159.
