The biggest PDP news at E3 2012 was the announcement of the new line of Afterglow headsets. The headsets boast tough construction, a beautiful aesthetic design, and the signature Afterglow lights. The headsets also feature large, 50mm Neodymium® Speakers that sit inside an angled acoustic cavity tuned by an award winning Hollywood audio post-production facility. The custom designed speakers are calibrated for audio depth, sonic richness, and clarity of sound.

E3 2012: Nintendo Connect speaks with Oz about the Afterglow Headset
The Afterglow® headset has three distinct audio modes:• Pure Audio: Enjoy your game audio content in its original form at the highest possible quality.
• Bass Boost: If you appreciate a good explosion while you’re gaming, Bass Boost will give low-end frequencies a boost without losing high-end clarity.
• 3D Cinema Surround Sound: Introducing PDP’s proprietary 3D sound algorithm. With a capable DSP on board, a team of acoustic engineers and artists created this sound mode after an extensive R&D phase. This mode expands the size of virtual environments without distorting the directionality, creating an immersive experience for the listener that’s only one step short of being there.
