LG Electronics, popularly known as LG, has announced its first-ever sound solution designed specifically for gamers. The LG Ultragear speaker (model GP9) is a match made in heaven for LG’s premium gaming monitors as it provides the users with a three-dimensional, game-optimized sound. In addition, the LG GP9 sports a stylish yet unobtrusive design and offers effortless control and seamless compatibility with the latest gaming consoles and PCs.
The LG GP9 speaker is one of the significant components to expand its UltraGear ecosystem and take the gaming experience to exhilarating new heights. The need for premium gaming sound is on the rise with the rapid growth of the gaming industry. LG took advantage of their leverage in audio technology by incorporating real insights from real gamers to develop the Ultragear speakers. This experiment resulted in a fantastic sounding product, freeing gamers from using headphones for audio clarity.
The GP9 speaker sports LG’s proprietary 3D Gaming Sound technology and a specially-designed HRTF (head-related transfer function) algorithm, tailoring a game’s audio according to the genre. This allows the users to experience stunningly detailed virtual surround sound complete with a realistic sense of space, directionality and position, without a huge headphone.
The Ultragear speaker also features Game Genre Optimizer with two different modes designed to customize game audio to match what the user is playing. The FPS mode allows gamers to hear the smallest of details in the game, improving their gameplay. This mode is best for users who like to play FPS games like Pubg and COD. The RTS mode ramps up the realism with genuine spatial sound providing an immersive experience to the gamers. This mode works the best while playing realistic and racing games.
The LG GP9 comes with a one-of-a-kind “voice chat” feature, allowing users to communicate with other players without separate microphones or headphones. The built-in mics of the speaker make use of LG’s unique echo-cancellation algorithm, which has the power to distinguish a user’s voice from game sounds and background noises. This advanced speaker can also be used as a discrete sound card preferred by many PC games. The GP9 speaker also allows users to share custom sound settings for different games with other gamers.
The LG UltraGear gaming speaker comes with certified Hi-Res Audio providing gamers with excellent sound quality. Hi-Res Audio has higher sampling rates which deliver a richer and more complete reproduction of original sound. In addition, the GP9 is equipped with a Hi-Fi Quad DAC, which is an advanced technology found only in high-end audio systems.
The UltraGear speaker is built by keeping in mind all the needs of a gamer. The control buttons are mounted on top of the speaker, making it easier to reach them. It also sports a customizable RGB lighting system with 16.8 million different colours to enhance the overall gaming experience.
Users can connect their PCs or consoles with the speaker using a USB-C optical cable when it comes to connectivity. If they want to go wireless, they can use the Bluetooth feature of the speaker to listen to music or watch video content.
The GP9 speaker is built in such a way that it fits perfectly between the legs of an LG’s lightning-fast UltraGear gaming monitor stand. The speaker’s matte black finish, along with the understated metallic elements, provides an ultra-stylish aesthetic that looks great next to any device in the room.
The GP9 will be available in the UAE this month.
