Hercules Gamesurround MUSE Pocket USB 5.1 Surround Soundcard

Hercules recently unveild an extension of its popular Gamesurround Muse range of audio solutions with the upcoming launch of its most portable sound, Gamesurround Muse Pocket USB.

Designed to be the easiest sound card upgrade for computers, Gamesurround Muse Pocket USB is also the most efficient audio companion for laptops. USB-bus powered, Gamesurround Muse Pocket USB provides 5.1-channel audio output for incredible surround sound reproduction. It also features solid metal casing for mobile use, and smooth volume adjustment thanks to its prominent metal volume button.

“Gamesurround Muse Pocket USB meets three major expectations in today’s PC audio market,” states Bruno Ormel, Sound and Video Business Unit Director at Hercules. “First of all, its innovative metallic design makes the product very solid and easy to use. Secondly, its mobility is just the thing for laptop users on the move. Last but not least, its surround sound capabilities meet the growing demand from users for powerful, portable PC home theater solutions.”

Rugged durability, perfect for use in most any environment.

The metal casing acts as a counterweight to balance the weight of 5.1-channel audio cables.

The pocket-sized unit takes up little room in a laptop case.

No external power source is required, as the unit is USB-bus powered.

A weighted polyurethane base prevents slipping and sliding, perfect for use on trains and planes.

Surround sound capabilities: Gamesurround Muse Pocket USB’s 5.1-channel analog outputs give a huge audio boost to any PC:

Surround sound audio positioning on 4 and 5.1-channel speaker kits in 3D games via the Sensaura audio engine.

Surround sound audio positioning on headphones thanks to Sensaura surround simulation technology for headphones.

Surround sound audio positioning for today’s multichannel audio sources (internet radio, WMA…).

Gamesurround Muse Pocket USB features:

A 150 cm USB cable which connects the unit to a computer and provides all necessary power

A 8,8 cm round metallic external unit, incorporating:

a line and a microphone input

a 5.1-speaker and a headphone output
