Mad Catz Unveils Cyborg Gaming Headset

The F.R.E.Q. 5 Pro is targeting PC and Mac gamers and features a lightweight metal headband as well as 50 mm Neodymium drivers, which deliver "superior stereo performance," MadCatz said today. The noise-canceling microphone is detachable and features an illuminated mute indicator while on-ear controls allow the user to mute the microphone, adjust the volume, and modify equalizer settings.

The design of the headset matches other Cyborg products such as the Cyborg V.7 keyboard (which sells for about $60 - $70), as well as the $140 R.A.T 9 gaming mouse. Gamers can use the headset on PCs as well as on Apple's iPhone, Blackberry devices and HTC handsets to make voice calls, MadCatz said.

No word on pricing yet. However, we are told that the F.R.E.Q. 5 will ship sometime this spring.
