London, England – 15 November 2007 – Hauppauge Digital, a world leader in PC entertainment products, has introduced XFones PC-2400, wireless 2.4Ghz headphones with "Dolby Headphone" technology, to give an unrivalled listening experience. The new headphones come with a tiny USB transmitter with a 10m range to give freedom of movement.

The Xfones will be available online and in stores, including PC World, by the end of November with an rrp of £79.99 inc VAT.

"XFones are the ultimate audio addition to an entertainment PC," said Yehia Oweiss, Hauppauge Digital's Vice President of Sales EMEA. "They have the widest dynamic spectrum to maximise audio enjoyment, appealing to the PC users that demand the best experience from their multimedia applications."

Weighing just 260g (without batteries) the XFones use ear-hugging padded cups equipped with full 40mm drivers to ensure delivery of a rich audio experience. The headphones use three AAA alkaline batteries (supplied), lasting up to 10 hours continuously, with an auto-off feature, to prolong battery life.

Multiple XFones can be used together, allowing for multi-player games or the whole family to enjoy a movie or listen to a concert together.

No Drivers to install
XFones simply “plug and play” with the Windows and Mac operating systems. Simply plug in the Xfones' USB Stick to your desktop or laptop computer. The operating systems will detect and install the XFones automatically.

"Dolby Headphone" is a patented technology that decodes Dolby Digital 5.1 and plays it through the Xfones the way it was encoded in the movies. With the Xfones, owners are guaranteed unadulterated, pure digital entertainment. Armed with a bass booster, XFones gives owners the option to increase the bass ambience to their computer games, music or movies. Cyberlink PowerDVD 7.0 for Windows is included to give optional Digital Virtual Surround Sound.

When used in conjunction with Hauppauge's range of TV tuners for the PC and Mac, XFones can be used to watch live and recorded digital and analogue TV.

XFones use 2.4Ghz RF transmission, delivering data rate up to 6mbit/sec. Supports AES/EBU, IEC60958, S/PDIF consumer formats for stereo PCM audio. Conveys AC-3 data stream by S/PDIF output. Compatible with Win98 SE/ WinME/ Win2000/ WinXP/ Vista and MacOS 9.2.1/MacOS10.2 without additional drivers.
