"We developed this really because the sound that you get with your laptop, you're sort of stuck with. If you're on a flight and you're sort of listening to that tinny sound from the laptop, even the best laptops today tend to have sub-par sound quality. The device is a USB device, it's smaller than the size of your thumb. You can plug your headphones into it or you can connect it directly to a home theatre system through the digital output if you're using it in a home environment. And it allows you to do 5.1, it does 5.1 virtualization through the headphones. It allows you to apply effects, make it sound more expansive. It allows you to do volume boost, which is big for a lot of people. A lot of people's laptop audio is just not loud enough, especially if it's noisy, they're on that plane and things like that."
