Mad Catz launch gaming headsets and a surface in Vegas

Mad Catz launches new gaming surface and headsets at CES

Gaming products provider Mad Catz has announced a number of new toys for gamers at CES this year.

Two headsets and a brand new surface, claiming to allow gamers to move faster and be more precise, have been detailed.

G.L.I.D.E.TE gaming surface

This device provides gamers with a substantial playing area, ideal if users prefer broader in-game movements.

It has been designed to not fray at the edges, is water proof for easy clean, and is immune from curling so it can be rolled up and transported easily.

The G.L.I.D.E.TE is avaiable for order from the Mad Catz site for £34.99.

F.R.E.Q.9 gaming headset

This wireless headset connects with almost any audio source including PC, MAC, game consoles, mobile and smart devices.

It boasts surround sounds using AM3D Audio technology, which converts any audio into 3D sound. A discrete mic has been built in allowing users to communicate online without the need for a boom mic.

A support app is available for iOS and Android, so gamers can check battery levels and activate a number of features, and the device benefits from digitally controlled active noise cancellation, reducing background noise.

The headset can be ordered now from the Mad Catz website for $299.99.

F.R.E.Q.TE gaming headset

These tournament grade headsets have been designed with e-sports athletes so they deliver what even the more hardened gamer expects.

It features a custom uni-directional boom mic, meaning the voice of that player is conveyed accurately and without background noise.

Precision 50mm speakers are fitted inside ear cups padded with memory foam to boost passive noise cancellation.

This headset can be ordered from the Mad Catz site.

L.Y.N.X Mobile Hybrid Controller

The L.Y.N.X controller has been designed with the multiple-device gamer in mind. Users can fold the device up making it easier to transport.

Each section of the controller – the d-pad, analog sticks and buttons – can be programmed to do different things with different games on Android powered smartphones and tablets.

The controller is debuting at CES and will be available from the Mad Catz website in March for $299.99.

TRITTON Swarm Wireless Mobile Headset

The Swarm headset detects a device via Bluetooth and can tell its best possible audio quality enabling it to configure itself.

Users can user voice control via the headset on their mobile, and access the phones controls using the buttons on the side of the ear cups.

The Swarm wireless headset will be available on the Mad Catz website in March, priced at $149.99.

R.A.T.Prox Gaming Mouse

The mouse is built with a magnesium alloy chassis reducing weight and enhancing strength.

It contains a sensor that can be swapped out to suit different gaming styles when newer sensors become available.

Gamers can also swap out the unique scroll wheel system allowing them to adjust the click force of the wheel.
