Mad Catz Ship New F.R.E.Q. Wireless Surround Headset


It’s a belated happy new year from all of us here at NGB, and with that, we dive straight into the gaming news of 2015 with a awesome new gaming headset, brought to you by Mad Catz.

The new headset, F.R.E.Q, represents the flagship in the Company’s F.R.E.Q. headset range and showcases a host of advanced technologies. In an industry first, F.R.E.Q. 9 allows gamers to enjoy expansive wireless surround sound via AM3D Audio technology. AM3D transforms wireless audio, allowing gamers to pinpoint enemy movements and team mate positions with unrivalled accuracy. Based upon the same virtual surround technology used in mission critical missile warning systems by an F-16 Falcon jet fighter, AM3D Audio can convert any standard stereo audio signal into highly realistic military-grade 3D sound. It also comes featuring premium Bluetooth technology and can connect to practically any audio source thanks to the adapter box which connects to a standard digital optical or analogue source, transmitting wireless audio directly to the headset. Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz stated:

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 which we believe will cover all the users’ needs, and do so with remarkable audio fidelity. We think a gaming-inspired, premium headset which can function with practically any format is a welcome addition to the F.R.E.Q. range, and one which we think will add positive growth in 2015.

The headset also supports the Android or iOS official apps, allowing gamers to check battery level and activate the various features of the headset. You can order your very own here. Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.
