DTS is getting a little personal. The wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Corporation announced that it has launched a Play-Fi headphone app aimed at making any of its Play-Fi enabled products capable of streaming shared content via standard headphones, while maintaining perfect audio/video synchronization. The DTS Play-Fi Headphones app will serve as a companion app, allowing the user to stream content over WiFi that is playing on any DTS Play-Fi supported product to any pair of headphones connected to a phone or tablet. The free DTS Play-Fi Headphones app is available now on iOS and will launch on Android in early July.
DTS has built a solid reputation by integrating its Play-Fi solution into a wide range of speaker systems, enabling seamless audio streaming. When set up properly, a DTS Play-Fi system can create an incredible whole home audio experience, whether that’s streaming music from one of many services, or simply enjoying a home theater experience.
With the DTS Play-Fi Headphones solution, up to four listeners can join the audio streaming session for a “private listening party” without disturbing others around them, DTS explained in a statement. When used in conjunction with DTS Play-Fi’s new whole-home TV audio streaming feature, the app allows users to join an ongoing TV audio multiroom session and enjoy the content at whatever volume level is best for them, while still enjoying the content as a group.
