Asus launched its HP-100U personal Dolby home theater set today. Comprising a lab-tuned pair of headphones, a Xonar U1 external audio device and a high quality array microphone, the HP-100U makes up a complete audio solution for PC or Mac users.
The Asus HP-100U comes with the Xonar U1, an external audio device that harnesses the power of four major Dolby technologies to deliver high fidelity, interference-free PC audio. Furthermore, it supports DirectSound, EAX 2.0 and Open AL acceleration in Windows Vista / Windows XP and also on Mac platforms. The Xonar U1 is also equipped with a Hi-Fi headphone amplifier for improved clarity when driving headphones.
Asus aimes the HP-100U to notebook users. Especially Asus targets with the HP-100U Mac users, who have previously been starved of Dolby solutions due to compatibility issues.
The Asus HP-100U also comes with an advanced array microphone with noise-cancelling capabilities—perfect for crystal clear voice delivery over VoIP applications such as Skype, MSN Messenger and QQ, as well as during multiplayer gaming.
The Asus HP-100U Dolby headphone set comes in four colors. Asus has not published the pricing and release date yet.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
