The latest PS4 and Xbox titles may already look pretty impressive but they could soon sound a lot better as well. Panasonic has just revealed its SC-HTB01 dedicated gaming speaker which has been designed to boost the audio when playing the latest titles.
The Japanese firm says this device has been designed especially for gamers with it offering a vast sound field and multiple modes to enhance time on your console.
In fact, the SC-HTB01 has actually been co-developed with SQUARE ENIX with it arriving equipped with three modes which include Role Playing Game, First-Person Shooter and Voice.
Depending on a player’s favourite games, switching between the three modes allows them to experience the world they are entering with a higher level of realism.
For example, the RPG mode enables users to enjoy a sense of realism and intensity as if they’re inside the game world. The advanced settings meet stringent verification criteria for ideal gameplay in the latest instalment of the storied gaming franchise FINAL FANTASY XIV.
The FPS mode provides accurate sound location and allows users to hear subtle sounds such as footsteps, making it optimal for FPS and Third-Person Shooter.
The Voice mode enhances human voices and further contributes to the immersive experience.
Although this speaker offers some powerful features, Panasonic says it’s been made to fit neatly in any room.
The SC-HTB01 features a compact and integrated design, with a width of 17 inches, a height of 2 inches, and a 2.1 channel 3-way speaker system with built-in subwoofer.
That means users should be able to enjoy games and movies by simply placing the speakers in front of a PC monitor or TV without obstructing the view.
The SC-HTB01 is also compatible with 4K/HDR pass-through and there’s a Bluetooth connection and high-resolution audio playback is also available, providing users with various sound sources playback.
This gaming speaker will be available in June 2020.
