CALABASAS, Calif. -- June 11, 2013

DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and
audio enhancement technologies, today announced that the Man of Steel:
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (limited deluxe edition), released by
WaterTower Music, featuring original music from Academy Award®, Grammy and
Golden Globe-winning composer Hans Zimmer, will be the first title to feature
a DTS Headphone:X™ audio mix, allowing listeners to hear the score precisely
as Zimmer intended it to sound. Man of Steel fans who purchase the CD version
of the deluxe edition will have the opportunity to download all 24 tracks in
DTS Headphone:X via Zimmer’s Z+ Music app.

“With the Man of Steel soundtrack, I wanted to try something new and give fans
the opportunity to connect with characters and completely immerse themselves
in the emotion and action of the movie in a way that's never been done
before,” said Zimmer. “I think DTS Headphone:X is an incredible tool for
putting the listener directly into my chair, allowing them to hear the way the
music was actually written. Every bit of the music is accurately recreated,
allowing fans to hear all elements of the soundtrack, exactly as I heard it
while producing it.”

DTS Headphone:X is an advanced new technology that enables content producers
to capture the acoustics of a high quality audio production studio for
faithful reproduction on consumer-end products. The technology externalizes
and expands sound, so instead of listeners perceiving that the sound is inside
their head, as with traditional headphone listening, they experience it as
coming from high quality loudspeakers located some distance around them. With
benefits for both producers and consumers, DTS Headphone:X presents a whole
new way to enjoy entertainment content over headphones.

“Hans Zimmer is known for his ability to produce soundtracks utilizing methods
outside the bounds of the ordinary, and we believe his creativity with the Man
of Steel score will be preserved and presented with precision to those who
listen to it in DTS Headphone:X,” said Geir Skaaden, senior vice president of
products and platforms, DTS, Inc. “Unlike any audio technology preceding it,
DTS Headphone:X is able to maintain the creator’s intent by precisely
reproducing the acoustic environment in which the score was mixed over the
listener’s headphones or earbuds, complete with all audio nuances and
directional characteristics.”

The Man of Steel: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (limited deluxe edition)
is currently available through Amazon and iTunes. The Z+ Music app is now
available via a free download to iPhone and iPad users, and will soon be
available to Android users.
