Mad Catz F.R.E.Q.5 Red Stereo Gaming Headset Review
19 March 2014
Conclusion: As some of you know we had the original F.R.E.Q.5 stereo headset tested a few months back but when Mad Catz released the colored versions (white/red) we just had to test one of those out (although we didn't expect any differences in the performance of the headset).
Summary: The F.R.E.Q. 5 headset from Mad Catz is available in multiple colors and sports a robust design by combining plastic and light metal. The product comes with 50mm Neodymium drivers, a removable microphone and two types of connectivity options: 3.5mm jack and USB.
Conclusion: The Mad Catz Cyborg FREQ 5 has excellent audio quality. Its 50mm Neodymium drivers guarantee deep bass and crisp highs. Compared to competing products, there's very few that work as well as the Mad Catz FREQ 5 out of the box.
Pros: Excellent stereo sound quality, Built-in controls for volume, equalizer and microphone, Driver-free, Braided cords, Flashy designs that come in a multitude of colors, Detachable microphone, Braided cords
Cons: Priced towards the higher side, Limited functionality when using 3.5mm jack, Limited ear piece adjustments
Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 5 Stereo PC Gaming Headset Review
Canadian Online Gamers
24 June 2013
Excerpt: If you were to ask me if I would spend $160 on a wired stereo headset for my PC, my instant response would be “hell no”. When you consider all the options gamers have in terms of headsets these days, $160 bucks for a wired headset that is not capable of 5.1 surround sound seems ludicrous.
Conclusion: Les transducteurs 50 mm font leur boulot, la stéréo également. Mad Catz nous avait toujours habitués à faire des produits de qualité pour sa gamme Cyborg, et cela n’est pas près de changer.
Excerpt: Wild wie ein Stier schabt die 2013 BWM HP4 im Sand der Wüste. Gleich werden wir in "Battlefield 3: End Game" das Gas durchtreten, durch Matsch rasen, Hindernissen ausweichen und auf eine Sprungschanze zuhalten.
