In addition, ZenPad comes with DTS Sound Studio to transform stereo audio into virtual surround-sound.

The ZenPad 8.0 features an interchangeable cover design that lets users customize their tablet with functional back covers. These covers can provide extra features and additional color options. Zen Clutch is a fashion accessory that provides a carrying and protection solution for ZenPad 8.0. Zen Case is another accessory that lets users outfit the tablet in their choice of five colors. Audio Cover brings immersive 5.1-channel surround sound to the tablet. Power Case is designed to extend ZenPad 8.0's battery life, giving users up to 15 hours of usage.
