  • Co-designing with the treVolo audio team, BenQ has developed its customized speaker drivers using select components and materials to deliver big-speaker quality. BenQ uses only neodymium magnets to perform at high temperatures without distortion, ensuring constant quality in sound output. 

  • What's the differences among the 5 sound field modes? What has BenQ done to optimize each mode?
  • Live/POP mode:
    Live/pop mode is a mode designed for listening to live music concerts for long periods. It adjusts sound balance as well as coordination in the high- and mid-to-low frequency sound to maintain realistic, live audio quality.



    Cinema mode:
    When watching a movie, if you find that the speakers cannot convey the sound made from the skillful action heroes, the sorrowful atmosphere of a scene in a terror movie or the heroic appearance of the hero, it will definitely weaken your immersion of watching a movie. Taking the sound and sound fields in the cinema as a reference and preserving the clarity of the dialogue, Cinema mode enables the audiences to fully immerse themselves in the film both visually and auditorily.



    Game mode:
    It emphasizes sound localization so gamers can hear very clearly in which direction his enemies are coming. A heightened level of sound detail is also provided to gamers so that they can hear the soft footstep sound and identify which weapons his enemies are using. It makes it easy for the gamers to attack or to defend as if they were really in the battlefield.



    Dialog/vocal mode:
    Dialogue mode is specially designed for vocal language. It reduces the interference from the background noise, enabling human voices to come to the foreground. In addition, this mode takes advantage of its device design for sound field setting, making it easy to hear clearly and easily distinguish voices which appear in the seminars, talk shows, or language learning programs.



    Rock/Party mode:
    This mode is especially designed for rock and electronic music. This mode enhances the deep bass sounds, 3D surround effects and accentuate rhythm. You will surround yourself in a sound field as in a real party and enjoy the lively and exciting carnival in front of the screen.

  • What will users benefit from the adoption of a DSP chip?

  • The DSP chip makes it possible to optimize various sound effects by enhancing or weakening the sound, and also to do noise cancelation and optimal tuning for accurate audio performance according to different user listening need. 

  • What materials did BenQ use for specific performance and benefits?
  • BenQ uses only neodymium magnets, which are able to perform at high temperatures without distortion, ensuring constant quality in sound output.
