COSTA MESA, Calif. — Dec. 6, 2016 — ZOWIE, BenQ s eSports brand, today announced the introduction of the VITAL Audio System. Sound, just like vision, is one of the most important sources of information when playing any competitive game. ZOWIE VITAL is a solution that achieves clear and consistent sound at home and in any tournament setting. ZOWIE VITAL is finally being released in the U.S. after months of gathering direct product feedback from competitive and professional gamers that attend major eSports events worldwide.
Serious gamers bring their own gaming gear to tournaments, and now it s possible to conveniently carry the sound settings they re accustomed to at home to the gaming venue thanks to the compact design of the ZOWIE VITAL Audio System. Since sound quality may need to be adjusted in different environments at varying background noises, the ZOWIE VITAL Audio System includes an intuitive touch panel that allows gamers to adjust the volume, bass, treble and vocal any time without going back to Windows or the Control Panel. There s no need for any drivers, ensuring that players can get the same sound quality they re accustomed to at home easily.
Convenience is important and so is sound fidelity. ZOWIE VITAL upgrades the system s output to make sure there is enough sound information on every computer, while allowing gamers to choose a wider impendence range of headsets without sacrificing performance.
Communication is key for any team-based eSports game. ZOWIE VITAL has an independent analog-to-digital input for the microphone to ensure that teammates hear voices more clearly.
ZOWIE VITAL allows headsets and speakers to remain connected at the same time providing the highest level of convenience. Players simply click the one-button headset/speaker mode on the touch panel.
ZOWIE VITAL Audio System Key Features:
1. Intuitive touch-panel to easily adjust volume, bass, treble and voice
2. All sound settings can be adjusted while in game
3. Headset and speakers are connected at the same time and selectable by a click of a button
