*Again, it's still early in development and the applications are simply ideas on the drawing board*, but at the same time having HyperSound directional audio working on glass is very exciting and we can't wait to show it publicly for the first time at E3."
Turtle Beach Unveils HyperSound Glass - The World's First Transparent Directional SpeakersCompany's Latest Innovation in HyperSound Directional Audio Opens Doors for Future Product Possibilities
SAN DIEGO, June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Turtle Beach Corporation ( HEAR), a leading audio technology company for over 40 years, has achieved another significant breakthrough with its HyperSound® technology, as the company revealed today it is now able to create directional audio using a transparent pane of glass. The Company's latest innovation opens the doors for exploration into future glass-based directional audio products and applications in the consumer, commercial and hearing healthcare spaces. Turtle Beach will be showing an early prototype of HyperSound Glass directional speakers at the 2016 Electronics Entertainment Expo, which takes place June 14-16, 2016 at the L.A. Convention Center.
"The advancements the HyperSound team is making with directional audio are simply amazing – some of the biggest breakthroughs in audio technology to come along in decades," said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. "Being able to create highly directional audio using glass opens up many potential opportunities, including integrating into desktop monitors, commercial displays, desktop speakers, and automotive dashboard glass to provide warnings directed specifically at the driver…pretty much anywhere there's glass there's a potential for audio. As we progress the technology, this also opens up licensing possibilities to external parties looking for ways to integrate the latest audio technology into their products. Again, it's still early in development and the applications are simply ideas on the drawing board, but at the same time having HyperSound directional audio working on glass is very exciting and we can't wait to show it publicly for the first time at E3."
HyperSound technology is a fundamentally new approach to sound delivery that generates a highly directional, narrow beam of audio in the air. Similar to how a flashlight directs a beam of light, HyperSound directs a beam of audio to targeted listeners in a specific spot, delivering an immersive, 3D-like audio experience. HyperSound Glass is similar in design to touchscreen glass, where there are multiple layers of transparent materials and electronics working in conjunction with the glass. For HyperSound Glass, the glass pane is layered with a set of transparent films allowing it to generate a beam of ultrasound that delivers crisp, clear audio to the targeted listener.

Added Mike Abt, Co-President, Abt Electronics, "I enjoyed the HyperSound demo and thought the speakers filled a big need for people struggling to hear the TV. Nothing bothers me more than a TV with the volume turned-up all the way, and the HyperSound Clear 500P enables someone having trouble understanding dialogue from the TV to listen at their own level, while the rest of the family can sit in the same room and enjoy the TV at its regular volume level."

|Sept 1..FDA clearance for Tinnitus Relief system add on...|
Earlier this year Turtle Beach Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR), a leading audio technology company for over 40 years, announced research regarding the use of its revolutionary HyperSound(R) Technology directed audio to alleviate Tinnitus. Today, Turtle Beach is excited and proud to announce the company has received FDA clearance on an all-new Tinnitus relief feature for its revolutionary HyperSound Clear(TM) 500P home audio system. The new Tinnitus add-on works in addition to the HyperSound Clear 500P's already proven ability to significantly1 improve the home entertainment listening experience for people with hearing loss.
Looking beyond hearing loss, Tinnitus is another serious and widespread hearing health problem. Commonly known as "ringing in the ears," Tinnitus is the perception of sound when no actual external noise is present, and there is currently no cure for most types of Tinnitus. Additionally, the American Tinnitus Association2 states, "Millions of Americans experience Tinnitus, often to a debilitating degree, making it one of the most common health conditions in the country. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimates that 15% of the general public - over 50 million Americans - experience some form of Tinnitus, with approximately 20 million struggling with chronic Tinnitus, and two million living with extreme and debilitating cases."
"We're committed to advancing the clinical capabilities for how HyperSound Technology can help individuals with hearing issues," said Rodney Schutt, SVP and General Manager for the HyperSound business at Turtle Beach Corporation. "HyperSound is still in its infancy as the HyperSound Clear 500P has been out less than a year, and in that time we've addressed two prominent hearing healthcare issues. First, we've re-created a comfortable home entertainment environment where people with hearing loss and their family and friends can return to the TV room and enjoy the latest entertainment together, and now we may be able to provide relief for people suffering from Tinnitus. These are groundbreaking, all-new solutions for managing these two specific hearing issues that affect millions of people around the world, and we plan to continue to research and test other areas where HyperSound Technology may have the potential to be a hearing healthcare solution or provide exceptional improvements in the home entertainment environment."
Added Dr. Ritvik Mehta, Founder and Medical Director of the California Hearing & Balance Center, "As a hearing healthcare professional, I'm very excited to be part of another significant breakthrough in hearing healthcare, driven by Turtle Beach's HyperSound Technology and backed with our research. Our clinical study included 11 adult patients living with chronic Tinnitus, and initial results demonstrate impressive reductions in Tinnitus loudness and annoyance, when sitting in the HyperSound Clear 500P's directed audio beam using the Tinnitus add-on."
While there's no cure for Tinnitus, one of the current treatment methods is to wear headphones, earbuds or a hearing aid that delivers sounds to cancel-out the perceived "ringing in the ears." Unfortunately, while an effective solution, wearing any of these devices is often uncomfortable, especially over long periods of time and at night when trying to sleep. The new Tinnitus add-on for Turtle Beach's HyperSound Clear 500P comes pre-programmed with nine soothing sounds, including steam, rain, wind, fan, shower, forest, waves, white and brown noises from which users can choose, and when pointed at a person with Tinnitus, may relieve the "ringing in the ears" sound. The key difference with the HyperSound Clear 500P is that now people have the freedom to sit in their favorite spot in the house, or sleep comfortably in their bed without wearing any device on their head. This has the potential to improve the quality of life for somebody living with chronic Tinnitus.
HyperSound Technology is a fundamentally new approach to sound delivery that generates a directional, narrow beam of audio in the air that can be pointed to a very specific location. Similar to how a flashlight directs a beam of light, the HyperSound Clear 500P directs a beam of audio to targeted listeners, delivering an immersive, 3D audio experience, which helps people hear and understand the television more clearly.
