Multiplatform Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 Headset with Surround Sound and Invisible Microphone 

Packed with state-of-the-art technology and compatible with a breathtaking array of consoles, smart TVs and mobile devices, the Mad Catz F.R.E.Q.9 sets an ambitious performance standard in headset design, freeing you to experience extreme sonic clarity anywhere, on practically any system, wirelessly. Hear where your enemies are with surround sound, chat in-game more naturally with binaural monitoring, and listen lag-freewith breakthrough wireless aptX Audio technology. With the addition of an invisible mic, rechargeable Li-ion battery and premium 50mm drivers, this could be the last headset you ever buy. Compatible with: PlayStation 4, Xbox One (Xbox One adapter sold separately), Xbox 360, PC, Mac, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Mad Catz M.O.J.O., Amazon Fire TV, and other smart devices.

Multiplatform - Connect to ALL Major Gaming Platforms and Smart Devices 

The F.R.E.Q.9 Wireless Surround Headset connects to smart TVs, set top boxes and any Bluetooth device. It includes an adapter box*, 3.5mm jack, and 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable so you can connect to other consoles and computers as well. 10m/33ft wireless range.

Surround Sound Hear AM3D's Zirene Surround Sound

through large 50mm Neodymium drivers. Based on technology developed for F-18 pilots to sonically track the position of targets around them, AM3D's patented software engine moves the sound environment out from inside your head to create a spacious audio landscape all around you. AM3D Surround allows you to hear the locations of in-game hostiles long before they sense your presence, and maybe discover a newfound appreciation for your music collection as you can pinpoint individual instruments and their position within the mix.

Digital Active Noise Cancellation (D-ANC) 

Control the amount of background sound you hear with Soundchip's Digital Active Noise Cancellation (D-ANC). Coupled with superb sound isolation provided by the earcups, D-ANC will completely block out your noisy environment when you want to hear only the crystal-clear audio of your music or game.

Stop Shouting at Your Friends - use Binaural Monitoring

When chatting in-game with D-ANC on, you can activatebinaural monitoring to allow some outside sound to pass back into the earcups. Hearing your own voice makes conversations over chat much more natural - your friends will thank you. To implement binaural monitoring, the F.R.E.Q. 9 uses two mics to monitor outside noise as well as two mics to monitor audio inside the earcups to optimize pass-through of voice frequencies - handy if you want to talk to someone in the room without removing your headset. And, binaural monitoring reduces the feeling of pressure that ANC can sometimes cause.

Lag and Lip-Sync Issues Eliminated - aptX Makes it Possible 

Most Bluetooth headsets are only viable for listening to music because lag between what you hear and what you see is too noticeable when gaming or watching HD video. F.R.E.Q.9 solves the problem of wireless lag by incorporating powerful aptX low-latency technology under the hood. aptX enhances Bluetooth signal timing so that lag and lip-sync issues are greatly reduced and the quality of the original source audio is preserved. And, audiophiles rejoice! aptX dramatically improves the audio signal over Bluetooth, transmitting uncompressed, broadcast-standard sound from a wireless Bluetooth connection.
