I think I’ve finally discovered the sinister plot underlying Mad Catz’s visually and functionally striking line of Cyborg gaming products: They’re preparing to build an actual cyborg, and the newly announced F.R.E.Q. 5 Pro Gaming Headset is the ears.
Mad Catz already has the eyes, the hands, the legs, and the neural interface (fudging it a bit). Now they’re preparing to unleash the F.R.E.Q. 5 Stereo Gaming Headset, all the better to hear you with, my dear.
This Cyborg’s ears come outfitted with precision-balanced, extra large 50mm drivers with neodymium magnets; a detachable microphone; and convenient on-ear controls for volume and muting. You can even swap out the USB plug for a 3.5mm audio cable and use it as the world’s most noticeable iPhone headset.
The latest bit of Cyborg kit is due to hit stores within a few months. Hit up the official product page for more info on what everyone will be wearing once the Cybermen have their way.
