Gaming accessory company Mad Catz is unveiling new products at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. The first of their news is the announcement of the availability of their flagship wireless headset, the F.R.E.Q.9.
The headset boasts AM3D sound technology which allows for clear and pin point accurate sound direction. An integrated microphone provides clean chat performances without having a microphone that extends from the headset.
Mad Catz emphasizes the versatility of the headset’s applications, saying that it’s “compatible with practically any audio source.” Combining its Bluetooth capabilities with the ability to plug in to both digital and analog sources means that it can be used with PC, consoles and mobile devices.
By constantly analyzing ambient noise, the F.R.E.Q.9 gives users the option to “listen through”, making it possible to carry on conversations in the room without removing the headset.
“Mad Catz makes products which appeal to the passionate gamer, but today even those who play games as a primary hobby, use headsets throughout their day. Traditionally we accept the notion of using different headsets for each task. A dedicated headset and boom mic for gaming, earbuds for sport, and noise-cancelling headphones for travel. We think there’s a better way to introduce quality and value to a gaming audience and Mad Catz is excited to introduce the F.R.E.Q. 9“
