PANASONIC UNVEILS SC-GN01 WEARABLE IMMERSIVE GAMING SPEAKER SYSTEM (WIGSS) TO DELIVER UNBEATABLE SOUND FOR SERIOUS GAMERS
Panasonic’s newest gaming speaker system offers immersive play without sacrificing comfort
Newark, NJ – Today, Panasonic announced the SoundSlayer Wearable Immersive Gaming Speaker System (WIGSS) – SC-GN01 – at Gamescom 2021.
With a unique, ergonomic design that is worn on the shoulders, you can comfortably enjoy realistic surround sound while losing yourself in your favorite video games. Similar to its sister product, the HTB01 gaming speaker released in 2020, the SoundSlayer WIGSS has been specifically designed in collaboration with SQUARE ENIX with gamers in mind and offers a vast sound field and three different sound modes to enhance the gaming experience.
The SoundSlayer WIGSS’s three sound modes, which were expertly created through joint development with the FINAL FANTASY XIV Online sound team, allows users to fully enjoy immersive gameplay.
With a high-fidelity sound field, the SoundSlayer WIGSS enhances game audio and provides a truly realistic experience within the virtual world. It is optimized for use with FINAL FANTASY XIV Online, the critically acclaimed MMORPG*1 from SQUARE ENIX Co., Ltd. and provides an unparalleled audio experience within the world of Hydaelyn.
Amazing Sound Modes
Experience great sound, no matter what genre video game you play
The SoundSlayer WIGSS is equipped with three distinct gaming sound modes: Role-Playing Game mode, First-Person Shooter mode and Voice mode.
The Role-Playing Game*2 mode is ideal for role-playing games and optimized for FINAL FANTASY XIV Online. This mode creates a sense of reality and intensity, so players feel like they’re inside of the game’s virtual world.
The First-Person Shooter*3 mode provides accurate audio location so users can hear subtle sounds, such as footsteps, giving players the advantage in first-person shooter and third-person shooter*4 games.
The Voice mode enhances human voices and further contributes to the immersive experience. Recommended for adventure games*5, where clear dialogue can provide important clues.
By switching between the three modes, gamers can create a realistic experience filled with intensity and tension.
The SoundSlayer WIGSS also features a Music mode and Cinema mode so gamers can enjoy a realistic audio experience with content other than games, such as movies and television shows.
Furthermore, by equipping a high-performance noise- and echo-cancelling dual microphone, you can chat clearly with other players without being disturbed by the powerful surround sound.
Sound Quality Designed for Gamers
Immersive sound with the latest audio technologies
The SoundSlayer WIGSS features original sound technology with four-channel full-range speakers in a comfortable, wearable design. This high-quality gaming speaker combines original processing technologies such as True MAGESS (Majestic Augmented Gaming Environment Sound System) and a high-performance signal processor for a premium audio experience.
The True MAGESS (Majestic Augmented Gaming Environment Sound System) features four full-range speakers that deliver high surround sound in all directions accentuating sharp sounds with neodymium magnets.
Its high-performance signal processor with the original signal processing technology creates realistic surround sound. It is also compatible with multi-channel content, such as 5.1ch, and reproduces a more natural surround.
The SoundSlayer WIGSS system and unique processing technology create a more realistic acoustic field, making gamers feel as though they are enveloped by sound in all directions – helping gameplay by accurately placing footsteps, gunfire and other critical sound effects within the soundscape.
Ergonomic Design for Comfort
Powerful immersive sound in a wearable design
The SoundSlayer WIGSS, designed to sit comfortably on the shoulders, features optimal speaker placement and signal processing technology, which help to deliver a rich and powerful sound experience. The unique, ergonomic design allows gamers to play comfortably for a long period of time without putting pressure on the head and ears, which can be caused by headphones.
It also features Panasonic’s original housing structure based on the results of human body data analysis to offer high levels of comfort even during extended gameplay.
