The Ear Force DSS 5.1/7.1 channel Dolby surround sound processor transforms any stereo analog headset into full, immersive surround sound for playing XBOX, PS3 or PC games and watching movies with Blu-ray or DVD players. It is the perfect headset or headphone accessory for audiophiles everywhere. It works with any set of standard stereo analog headphones and is the perfect complement to the Turtle Beach Ear Force series of stereo gaming headsets (XLC, XL1, X11, X31, P11, PX21, PX3, Z1, and Z2). If you're looking around for audio accessories for your headset or headphones, look no further.

The optical digital input easily connects to a game console or media player for Dolby 5.1/7.1 channel surround sound and the analog input can also be used to upgrade analog stereo audio sources to Dolby Pro Logic IIx for virtual surround sound. A bass boost control adds sub-woofer effects for enhanced realism to any audio source.

With the Ear Force DSS, video game and movie fans will be able to hear distinct audio events happening all around them, greatly enhancing the overall experience and rewarding gamers with a newfound competitive edge. DSS users playing games and watching movies on their game consoles will actually hear the 7.1 surround sound from certain 5.1 channel audio tracks via additional "hidden" channels called Dolby EX.

I bought My Turtle beach PX3 at the same time as I bought this , After testing this DSS with the wireless headset for 14Days Before I left a review : I was blown away from how crisp the sound detail was with the 5.1/7.1 Dolby Surround Sound It is truely an amazing bit of kit and well worth the 49.99.

For setting up it is extreamly simple plug and play simple as that no messing about and the other great thing is you can use any headset with this kit.

For those of you that can't get the Dolby surround sound to work please make sure you take off the two white tips on the Digital Optical wire that is only a cover.

Overall I rate this product 10/10 does what it say's on the box!!

 Not bad.

Got this to go with my Turtle Beach PX 21's, mostly used for Modern Warfare 3. It definetly makes a difference. Before sound would be sourced from what sounded like the middle of your head. Now there is a definite surround sound effect, although it's sometimes difficult to distinguish. It makes a huge impact on gameplay as you can hear the rough direction people approach from and act accordingly. Can also be quite confusing when lots of explosions go off, especially with bass turned up, shellshock I guess.
