The black F.R.E.Q. 5 Stereo Gaming Headset for PC and Mac from Mad Catz features premium-quality 50mm drivers, intuitively placed on-ear controls, and a detachable noise-canceling microphone. The F.R.E.Q. 5 keeps your gaming sessions well-equipped for extended listening comfort. They are equipped with oversized speakers that pump out stereo sound with a wide dynamic range. The comfortable, spacious earcups provide clean and clear audio reproduction. Previously hidden details in your game's audio soundscape will enhance your gameplay. Their skillfully engineered earcup design also helps in blocking out distractions like excessive teammate chatter, so you can focus on playing at your best.
Precision-Balanced, Extra Large 50mm Drivers with Neodymium Magnets
Employing neodymium, the F.R.E.Q. 5 feeds high-fidelity audio through a pair of precision-balanced 50mm speakers for deep bass and crisp undistorted highs.
Lightweight Metal Components
The headphones are constructed to survive the stress of LAN tournaments. The F.R.E.Q. 5 couples comfort with sturdiness to accommodate extended gaming sessions. Lightweight metal components provide ample adjustability to give you a customized fit, and the cans even fold flat to support an around-the-neck resting position.
Detachable Noise-Canceling Microphone with Illuminated Mute Notification
The F.R.E.Q. 5's removable solution provides the freedom to use the mic only when necessary. When gaming in loud environments, its advanced noise cancelation stifles ambient sounds to ensure that your conversations are crystal-clear. Toggling the microphone mute button prevents your teammates from hearing anything you don't want them to. A red LED illumination in the tip of the detachable mic indicates that no one can hear you.
Easy to Locate On-Ear Controls
Intuitive placement of all controls provides simple adjustability, without the need to remove the headset. Mute the mic, tweak the volume, and toggle the equalizer settings, all while keeping your eyes on your monitor.
Compatible with MP3 Players and Smartphones
Use the headset's handy quick-release connector to instantly gain MP3 player compatibility, and convert the F.R.E.Q. 5 into portable headphones. Swap out its USB cord for the included 3.5mm audio cable and then plug directly into your device. If you have a smartphone*, you can even take voice calls using the microphone.
Supports Apple iPhone, BlackBerry, and HTC handsets.
