To quote: Tomorrow, we're releasing a free App to support the addition of new audio Modes for PULSE wireless stereo headset - Elite Edition.
To make your listening experience more dynamic, BassImpact has been added to new Modes for games, movies and music. In some instances, the sound profiles of the original movie or music scores have been adjusted to emphasize certain sounds.
As you know from watching our video walkthrough back in September there are currently six different default audio Modes available: Game, Shooter, Racing, Fighting, Music and Movie.
This new app will add five new Modes to your already enhanced audio experience:
• Football (Game):
BassImpact lets you feel the crunch of bone-crushing tackles or jolts behind every kick of the football
• Horror (Movie):
Deep bass sounds are enhanced to heighten the eerie atmosphere while the high shrill of screams are boosted to make you jump out of your seat.
• Action (Movie):
The low and high sounds of explosions and gunfire are magnified delivering a bigger and more intense audio experience.
