Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 7 Surround Sound Gaming Headset for PC

Highly Detailed 3D Audio

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.

Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 7 Surround Sound Gaming Headset - Immersive 7.1 Surround Sound
Immersive 7.1 Surround Sound Powered by Dolby Headphone Technology

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.

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. Previously hidden details in your game's audio soundscape will enrich your immersion and enhance your gameplay like never before.

Tough yet Lightweight Aluminum Components

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.

Detachable Noise-canceling Microphone with Illuminated Mute Notification

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.

I'll start with the the pros and cons for those of you who want a quick idea, then I'll add a little more details on each point.

- Solid materials
- Excellent sounds
- Excellent mic
- On ear controls
- Mic lights up when muted
- Detachable/interchangeable USB - 3.5mm

- Small ear cups
- Tight over ears
- Not very flexible
- Mic locked in position (read on for details)
- Fingerprint magnet (for the glossy black version)

Let me start by saying that I have a larger than average head, so many of the experiences I had will likely not be shared by most.

The first thing I noticed when picking up this headset was the extremely solid materials used for it. Everything felt sturdy and it definitely feels like it would last a long time. I'm sure they used plenty of plastics in manufacturing, but it feels like a solid metal headset. Definitely seems like it was built to last. The ear cups... Read more
I have to say that these headphones are perfect in nearly every way. The sound ins just incredible, the materials are top notch and the immersive 7.1 surround is breathtaking when in games that support it. The only thing I can complain about is the comfort. These headphones were not made with larger people in mind. The headband is so solid that these headphones do not flex very much and if your head is larger than average they can really squeeze and start to get uncomfortable. Also the ear cups are a little bit shallow which wouldn't be a problem except for the aforementioned tightness of the headphones. I was able to wear the headphones about 2 hours before they became too uncomfortable to continue. I am hoping that as I wear them they will break in a bit and become more comfortable and the sound is so incredible that to me it is worth the minor amount of discomfort these headphones cause.


After a few months of use these things became way comfy... Read more
Short little review here.

I tried this headset out for a week and decided I didn't want it. Now, the reasons are pretty important.

You can have your own pros with this headset but here are my cons.

- This headset has major bass, if you play fps' you will notice your gun has a very sharp pop and every single explosion feels insane. It can be too much at times considering it gets really intense. (In a good, headachy way)
- As you can see on the headset it does offset the weight when it clamps on your ears, it's a very heavy feel behind your ear that you have to be comfortable with to deal with. The mixture of these two cons can make a mild headache if you are easily set off.
- Many people say big heads don't work with this headset, that's entirely far from the truth. It fit my big head like a slightly (slightly) smaller glove. It isn't good for big heads over time but it is decent for short term uses.

I mainly sent it back for these... Read more
