Razer THX Spatial Audio App Out Now on Windows 10, Promising Gamers Superior Positional Accuracy
The Razer THX Spatial Audio application is available now on Windows 10, and it promises gamers superior positional accuracy when it comes to audio.
Alvin Cheung, senior vice president of Razer’s peripherals business unit, stated:
Together with THX, we have developed an immersive audio solution that addresses the core gamers’ needs – dynamic and accurate positional audio. We’ve achieved this by drawing on THX’s cinematic audio expertise, then adding a wide range of customization tools, to fine-tune and personalize the listener’s soundscape.
Jason Fiber, senior vice president and general manager of THX Ltd. mobile technologies, added:
THX is pleased to work with Razer to offer our THX Spatial Audio technology to enhance the gaming experience. It also provides for more true-to-life sound when enjoying music and movies.
According to the press release, THX's advanced rendering engine can produce a wider and positionally accurate soundstage even from a stereo (2-channel) source, though of course the result will be better if the source has multi-speaker audio to begin with.
Critically important is that the THX Spatial Audio app works with every brand of headphones, regardless of whether you're connecting them to your PC through 3.5mm, USB or Bluetooth.
Additionally, users have a great number of customization options at their disposal to tweak the audio experience to their liking.

You can purchase the THX Spatial Audio app on Razer's official website.
