With more portable media players capable of playing movies, wouldn't it be great to listen to them in surround sound? If you've invested in a quality pair of headphones or earphones for your home or portable entertainment, here's a wonderful adapter that'll upgrade your stereo sound. The JVC SU-DH1 Surround Sound Headphone Adapter uses Dolby Headphone technology to provide 5.1-channel surround sound through any two-channel headphones. The slim, wallet-sized JVC SU-DH1 weighs in at just 3.5 ounces with two AA batteries installed and easily connects to a laptop computer, portable DVD player, handheld video game system, or other portable product. With Dolby Headphone technology, it delivers virtual surround sound on-the-go from multimedia material labeled with Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Digital Surround EX, DTS-ES, and MPEG-2 AAC. In addition, the headphone adaptor includes Dolby Pro Logic II. This means that it can provide surround sound from two-channel sources like in-flight movies, portable music players, and portable game systems. It offers three different Dolby Headphone modes: the DH1 replicates a studio environment - a room with little reverberation; the DH2 replicates a typical listening room environment and the DH3 delivers a theater or concert hall effect. You can select among three Dolby Pro Logic II settings: Auto, Movie and Music. In Auto mode, the DH1 automatically selects the Movie or Music mode, selecting just the right input source. Movie is selected when the source is digital DVD or analog, and Music is selected when the source is CD. The Movie mode is used with Dolby Surround entertainment. Music is used for any two-channel music source. The JVC SU-DH1 comes with an analog input cord that can be stored easily into the bottom of the unit. There is also an optical digital mini jack for use with an optional connecting cord. Two AA batteries provide approximately 10 hours of use.
