The Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 7 Surround Sound Gaming Headset is equipped with Dolby headphone technology, premium-quality 50mm speakers, intuitively placed on-ear controls, and a detachable noise-canceling microphone - keeping your gaming sessions well-equipped for an immersive gaming experience and extended listening comfort. Providing balanced, directional audio and built from sturdy materials, the highly-durable and extremely comfortable F.R.E.Q. 7 is the ultimate 7.1 surround sound gaming headset.
Immersive 7.1 Surround Sound Powered by Dolby Headphone Technology
Your game only supports stereo sound? No problem! Initiate Dolby headphones by a simple button press and Dolby Pro Logic IIx processing will up-mix stereo content to the surround sound channels to give you the edge over rivals who are only playing in stereo. Hearing each and every disturbance within a game's environment gives you the competitive advantage by alerting you to the presence of your enemies long before they see you coming.
And when you just want to listen to music in its originally recorded state, toggle a button to disable Dolby Headphone and the F.R.E.Q. 7 will play your tunes in stereo.
Precision-Balanced, Extra Large 50mm Speakers with Neodymium Magnets
Utilizing the highest quality drivers available for use in gaming headsets – Neodymium – the F.R.E.Q. 7 Surround Sound Gaming Headset feeds high-fidelity audio through a pair of amplified 50mm speakers for deep bass and crisp undistorted highs.
Tough yet Lightweight Aluminum Components
The F.R.E.Q. 7 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 – all while bringing a level of durability previously unheard of in PC gaming headsets.
Detachable Noise-Canceling Microphone with Illuminated Mute Notification
The Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 7's removable solution provides the freedom to use the mic only when necessary. And when gaming in loud environments, the mic's advanced noise cancelation stifles ambient sounds to ensure your conversations are crystal-clear. The red LED illumination in the tip of the detachable mic indicates the microphone is in mute mode, so your teammates won’t hear anything you don't want them to.
Convenient 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 Dolby setting – all while keeping your eyes on your monitor.
Supports MP3 Players and Smartphones
Use the headset's handy quick-release connector to instantly gain MP3 player compatibility and convert the Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 7 into portable headphones. Just swap out its USB cord for the included 3.5mm audio cable and then plug directly into your device. And if you have a smartphone*, you can even take voice calls using the microphone.
*Supports Apple iPhone, BlackBerry, Nokia, Windows Phone 8, and HTC handsets.
Intuitive Software Interface
Easily accessed from the Windows system tray next to your clock, use the included software to quickly switch between the headset's three equalizer settings – Gaming, Music and Voice. You can also enable/disable Dolby headphones and adjust the volume and microphone gain.
