  New Technology From DTS Delivers up to 11.1 Home Theater Surround Sound
  Experience From Headphones

 DTS Headphone:X™ is an Advanced Headphone Technology Capable of Delivering a
                   Home Theater Experience From Your Pocket

2013 International CES

LAS VEGAS -- January 7, 2013

DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and
audio enhancement technologies, today announced DTS Headphone:X™, the
company’s most advanced headphone technology to date, capable of recreating
the home theater surround sound experience using only a pair of headphones.
The technology externalizes sound, so instead of the listener hearing the
sound inside their heads, as is typical for traditional headphone listening,
they perceive it as coming from high quality loudspeakers located some
distance around them. With benefits for both content owners and consumers, DTS
Headphone:X presents a whole new way to hear mobile entertainment over
headphones. Demonstrations of DTS Headphone:X technology will be given in the
theater room located within DTS’ booth at CES (LVCC, Central Hall, Booth
9839).

“Imagine having the ability to experience the latest action film in any movie
theater you choose. Now, imagine taking that experience with you anywhere,
anytime,” said Geir Skaaden, senior vice president of products and platforms,
DTS, Inc. “Essentially, Headphone:X was created to do just that. Headphone:X
takes advantage of the advanced properties of the DTS-HD® audio codec, which
allows us to precisely simulate the experience of being in any movie theater
or the movie’s mixing stage, and fine tuning that experience to an exact seat
location within the room.”

“I’ve been in this industry a long time and it is rare that a new audio
technology catches my attention; however, DTS Headphone:X technology is easily
the most impressive virtual headphone surround sound solution I’ve ever
heard,” said Geoff Emerick, multiple Grammy award-winning audio engineer and
producer. “It's unlike anything I’ve ever heard before. You can virtually
put yourself into any listening environment and hear all surround sound audio
cues coming from their intended direction in space over a standard pair of
headphones. It’s like having a home theater in your pocket.”

DTS Headphone:X enables content owners (e.g., movie studios, music labels or
retail) to capture the acoustics of a high quality audio production studio and
control the manner by which they are reproduced at the consumer end. Content
providers can rest assured that the sonic reproduction presented to the
listener can match the mix they so carefully crafted.

Features of DTS Headphone:X

  * Home Theater in your Pocket (HTiP) with surround sound for headphones (up
    to 11.1 channels)
  * Proprietary calibration to various headphone makes and models for
    optimized sound quality
  * Post-processing enhancement techniques for premium audio production

Headphone:X will be demonstrated in the theater room within DTS’ booth at CES.
