Get fully immersed in the game with the Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 7 Surround Sound Gaming Headset featuring Dolby Headphone technology. Boasting premium-quality 50mm speakers, intuitively placed on-ear controls, and a detachable noise-canceling microphone, the F.R.E.Q. 7 transports you into the worlds of your favorite videogames. 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.
A simple button press initiates Dolby Headphone and provides 7.1-channel surround sound – enhancing your directional awareness and creating a detailed, spacious 3D audio landscape which sounds as if it's beyond the limits of the headset. 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.
Your game only supports stereo sound? No problem – 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.
And when you just want to listen to music in its originally recorded state, just toggle a button to disable Dolby Headphone and the F.R.E.Q. 7 will play your tunes in stereo.
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. Previously hidden details in your game's audio soundscape will enrich your immersion and enhance your gameplay like never before.
Built to the same exacting standards as the award-winning R.A.T. gaming mouse and constructed to survive the stress of LAN tournaments, 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.
When not using to the mic to communicate with your online teammates, a headset's microphone only gets in the way. Problem solved with the Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 7's removable solution – it 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.
Toggling the microphone mute button prevents your teammates from hearing anything you don't want them to, and red LED illumination in the tip of the detachable mic will never make you wonder whether or not they can hear you.
Intuitive placement of all controls provides simple adjustability without the need to remove the headset. Mute the mic, tweak the volume, and toggle Dolby setting – all while keeping your eyes on your monitor.
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 Headphone and adjust the volume and microphone gain.
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.
