Smartphones have been progressing year over a year quite rapidly. The flagship smartphones of 2019 have more power than even some computers. The cameras on smartphones are capable of giving DSLRs a run for their money and what not. But there’s one aspect of smartphones which hasn’t evolved much over the last few years. While some of you may not have a single clue about what we’re referring to, some of you might have already guessed that we’re talking about the audio experience on smartphones.
Except for LG, none of the other major smartphone manufacturers have given a serious thought on improving the audio experience. LG, on the other hand, introduced the DTS:X Ultra and DTS Headphone:X Surround Sound features with the launch of LG V30 smartphone. The DTS:X® Ultra feature is designed to improve the gaming and XR/VR experiences with support for multi-channel, Static, and object-based audio. There are 3 main presets in DTS:X Ultra for movies, music, and games. It shares pretty much the same engine as the Headphone:X with some extra stuff on top. Here is the main Presets in DTS:X.
- Movies: Headphone:X delivers an improved and immersive audio experience to your headphones.
- Music: It improves the overall quality of your existing music.
- Games: Headphone:X drastically improves your gaming experience. You can even hear your enemy before you actually see them, which can be helpful in games like PUBG and Fortnite.
