The LG UltraGear Gaming Speaker GP9 uses the company's proprietary 3D Gaming Sound technology that uses head-related transfer function (HRTF) algorithm, which tunes the game's audio depending on the genre. It also includes a Game Genre Optimiser that has FPS Mode, RTS Mode, racing mode, and more. The gaming speaker also boasts of DTS Headphone:X technology, which provides 7.1 virtual surround sound when using headsets or earphones.
The built-in mics can be used to chat with friends without having to use an external mic or a headset. The speaker also comes with an echo-cancellation algorithm, which is said to suppress background noises. The speaker is Hi-Res Audio certified and has a built-in Hi-Fi Quad DAC (ES9038PRO).
