 Specifications and Case

The specifications are nothing fancy here. Frequency response and driver size might matter a bit, but these can be misleading if the sound quality doesn’t measure up. In case you want to check them out though, here’s the full list.

  • Audio Processing – BlasterX Acoustic Engine Lite (Preset Profiles)
  • Audio Drivers – 50mm FullSpectrum
  • Headset Frequency Response – 20Hz ~ 20kHz
  • Interface – 3.5mm Stereo Input
  • Supported Operating Systems – for Windows
  • Supported Gaming Consoles – PlayStation® 4 via 3.5mm 4-pole audio cable, Xbox One™ via 3.5mm 4-pole audio cable (With Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter)

The case on this unit is pretty fantastic. We end up with a sturdy plastic container that obviously has a lot of shelf appeal. What was particularly nice though, was that it was pretty easy to throw the headset back inside to keep it safe in case of traveling. Considering a fairly high MSRP of $129.99 (though actual pricing seems a bit less), a good case would certainly be expected.
