Details on the Limited Deluxe Edition of Hans Zimmer’s Man of Steel Sountrack where a little limited when first announced this week, but the disc’s Amazon product listing has been updated to include a few juicy tidbits, including the fact that the cover — which we’re seeing for the first time — will be an embossed steel case. Also, both the deluxe and standard editions will include a half-hour “Hans Original Sketchbook,” an audio track performed by Zimmer himself that details his initial experiments with the film’s score.
That’s pretty groovy in itself, but the real surprises comes a bit deeper in the product listing:
The deluxe edition will be housed in a special embossed steel case, contain 24 score selections, and give fans the ability to access multiple videos showing an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the music.
Those fans who purchase the CD version of the deluxe edition will have the opportunity to download all 24 songs in DTS Headphone: X, which reproduces a cinematic multi-speaker surround sound experience using only the user’s headphones. DTS Headphone:X presents a whole new way to hear mobile entertainment over headphones. The technology garnered rave reviews from the likes of The Wall Street Journal, and Cnet, among others at this year’s CES convention.
I can attest to the fact that DTS’s 11.1-channel Headphone:X demo was so shockingly good through a regular-old pair of stereo headphones, I went back to hear it a second time, so it’s heartening to see the format finally unleashed on the world.
