Sound Quality Improvement Shown For The Xbox One
This afternoon the guys over at Xbox Wire did a little post in regards to the quality of sound that next-gen gamers can look forward to with the Xbox One.
The Xbox 360 always had decent enough sound quality for what we needed it to do, but by listening to the below samples you can certainly hear how MS have taken it up a notch.
Major nelson aka Larry Hyrb said this
“Thanks to integration with Skype’s audio codec, which has a proven track record of high-quality voice through billions of hours of use within Skype, as well as dedicated audio processing (for Xbox One conversations via Skype and multiplayer party chats), Xbox One offers higher quality voice chat with the Xbox One Chat Headset compared to Xbox 360—whether you’re chatting in-game or through party chat with Skype on Xbox One”.
“The Xbox One Wireless Controller’s new expansion port dramatically expands the data transfer rate between the controller and console. Combined with Skype’s audio codec, this enables crystal-clear digital audio with the Xbox One Chat Headset, both capturing and rendering speech at 24 KHz PCM, which is triple the rendering sample rate and a 50 percent capture rate improvement over Xbox 360 headsets. And, as we shared before, the Xbox One Chat Headset comes with every Xbox One console”.
360 vs One audio comparison for you to hear for yourself.
