DTS Play-Fi Headphone App Completes Home Audio Ecosystem
DTS Play-Fi has launched their aptly named DTS Play-Fi Headphone app for iOS and Android that connects any Play-Fi product to any pair of headphones. The app utilizes any phone or tablet to sync music over WiFi - not Bluetooth - pushing audio to any pair of connected headphones. With DTS Play-Fi’s A/V synchronization technology, the audio stays in line with the video content being played on the TV.
“We are excited to announce the new DTS Play-Fi Headphones app, bringing a private listening experience to the whole-home audio ecosystem,” said Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi, at Xperi. “Whether it’s enjoying shared content at a higher volume, or multiple users enjoying the same content through individual headphones so they won’t disturb others, the DTS Play-Fi Headphones app delivers high-quality audio and performance over Wi-Fi.”
The DTS Play-Fi Headphones app will stream audio from any of the compatible inputs such as HDMI, optical, etc, on the compatible products listed below. Up to four listeners can join the audio streaming session for a private listening party without disturbing others around them. When used in conjunction with DTS Play-Fi’s new whole-home TV audio streaming feature, the app allows a user to join an ongoing TV audio multiroom session and enjoy it at a different volume for themselves, while still being part of the group.
Currently, the app can stream from a handful of products including:
- Definitive Technology W Studio Micro sound bar
- Klipsch Gate receiver, PowerGate amplifier, RSB-8 soundbar, RSB-14 soundbar, RW-1 speaker, “The Capitol Three” speaker, and “The Three” speaker
- McIntosh MB50 streaming audio player
- Onkyo Smart Speaker G3
- Paradigm PW LINK pre-amplifier
- Phorus PS10 speaker
- Pioneer Elite Smart Speaker F4
- Polk Omni S6 speaker and SB1+ sound bar
DTS Play-Fi technology enables lossless multi-room wireless audio streaming on any supported product from the world's most popular music services including Amazon Music, Deezer, iHeartRadio, Juke, KKBox, Napster, Pandora, Qobuz, QQ Music, SiriusXM, Spotify and TIDAL, thousands of Internet radio stations, as well as personal music libraries. In addition, DTS Play-Fi technology features advance streaming functionality like wireless surround sound, stereo pairing, music station presets, and audio/video synchronization.
