Turtle Beach’s new speakers defy everything you know about speakers

Turtle Beach’s new HyperSound speakers are transparent, directional, and all around incredible.

Turtle Beach have broken new ground with their HyperSound speaker system. The speakers generate audio in the air and then send that in the direction they’re facing. This allows a unique audio quality, and for directional audio meaning the audio is focused in one direction.

There’s a lot of possible uses for Turtle Beach’s HyperSound speakers, like the late-night gamer who doesn’t need to worry about keeping their neighbours up, or advertising kiosks who can advertise directly in front of their stall without disturbing the environment.

HyperSound’s feature digital signal processing that significantly improves audio quality and frequency response. They are also low on power consumption thanks to the use of low voltage cables and improvements in the emitter panels (technically HyperSound’s speakers) allowing for smaller panels.

The “speakers”, or panels, are made out of a transparent pane of glass. Using a highly directional, narrow beam of audio the glass sends the sound in one direction but from other directions is almost unhearable. Turtle Beach compare it to a flashlight in how it directs a beam of audio in one direction, and creates an immersive, 3D experience.

The panes are filled with transparent materials and electronics that work in conjunction with the glass to provide an unparalleled, directional audio experience. HyperSound glass is layered with a set of transparent films allowing it to generate a beam of ultrasound that, through Turtle Beach’s digital processing, delivers crisp, clear audio to the targeted listener.

Turtle Beach’s HyperSound speakers are still in the prototype phase of development but you can expect to hear a lot about them when they eventually release.
