Today, Mad Catz Interactive announced the shipping of the F.R.E.Q. 9 Wireless Surround Headset–the company’s latest gaming headset. The F.R.E.Q. 9 offers an expansive wireless surround sound via AM3D Audio technology. AM3D transforms wireless audio, allowing gamers to hear an enemy’s movements and team mate positions with accuracy. The AM3D Audio can convert any standard stereo audio signal into highly realistic military-grade 3D sound.
The F.R.E.Q. 9 features premium Bluetooth technology and can also connect to basically any audio source by using the adapter box, which connects to a standard digital optical or analogue source, transmitting wireless audio directly to the headset. The headset features digitally controlled Active Noise Cancellation (D-ANC) technology that reduces unwanted background noise and lets you focus on the game at hand as well.
The F.R.E.Q. 9 features an integrated mic which allows gamers to communicate online, plus it can be used on smartphones, tablets and more. Having no boo mic attached gives players a more comfortable feel. Support for the F.R.E.Q.9 is included in the Mad Catz app for Android or iOS, allowing gamers to check battery level and activate other features of the headset.
