"Monster's tablet is the first device to market that matches innovative design with a high fidelity, low latency wireless audio experience that is perfect for listening to music, watching video or mobile gaming," says
Although standard Bluetooth technology can be used to stream stereo audio wirelessly from mobile handsets and tablets to headphones and speakers, its inherent latency of more than 150 ms is not ideal for video or gaming applications. This is because there is a significant time lapse between the sound and video experienced by the viewer.
CSR aptX Low Latency technology is designed to mitigate this problem by delivering a total end-to-end latency of just under 40 ms, well within recommended limits for audio and video synchronisation applications. This means consumers can enjoy watching video and playing games on their tablets with their wireless audio devices, without the annoyance of speech or sound effects such as gun shots being out of sync with what is on screen.
Monster also uses CSR aptX codec technology in a range of its high-fidelity wireless speakers and headphones, including the Monster iSport Freedom(TM) headphones and the Monster ClarityHD(TM) speakers.
"We have always been dedicated to offering the best audio experiences possible from our products and we wanted to continue this tradition with our first tablet launch," said "Head Monster"
The Monster M7 tablet is its first device with aptX Low Latency and is exclusively available now at
"Mobile gaming has exploded in recent years and this launch marks the point at which we will see the consumer market really open up to using Bluetooth for their wireless audiovisual entertainment needs," concludes Murray. "We're really looking forward to seeing the aptX Low Latency ecosystem grow further, enabling more people to enjoy the high quality audio experience that aptX is famed for when they watch videos and play games."
