Logitech G offers support for a new app that lets you customize your gaming audio for a better immersion. With the app you should be able to hear game sounds such as big battles, steps nearby or racing noises on a racetrack more clearly.
The new app is called Immerse and was developed by Embody, a company for spatial audio data, in collaboration with Logitech G. Embody says on its website that Immerse has been designed so that PC gamers can "hear game audio the way you hear sounds in the real world". and make sounds appear closer or further away from you.
An app that allows you to "hear game audio while listening to real world sounds".
The Immerse app uses AI to create a personalized sound profile for each user. When you register for the app, you have to scan a QR code at Immerse and then take a picture of your right ear with your smartphone. Immerse's AI then uses algorithms to analyze all parts of your ear to predict how your ears will receive sound.
The Immerse app is a paid subscription service. Subscriptions start at $ 3 a month and a two-week free trial is offered. I played a little bit of the Resident Evil 2 remake with my Logitech G433 headset, with the app's melee mode enabled. This enabled me to hear more precisely where the enemies were and to pick up the moans of the undead. Then I tested Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition with an expanded sound field so that I can hear smaller sounds from a greater distance, e.g. B. Enemies roaming the area.
The Immerse app supports more than a dozen Logitech G headsets, including the G Pro X and Pro gaming headsets, as well as the Logitech G533, which we referred to as the "dream headset for PC gamers" during our CES 2017 reporting to have.
In addition to Logitech, Immerse also offers support for Beyerdynamic headsets. Therefore, there is a possibility that Embody will team up with other headset companies to provide better access to the customized in-game audio data in the future.
