Mad Catz Cyborg F.R.E.Q.5 Stereo Gaming Headset Review

19 March 2014
  • Conclusion: I've been using the F.R.E.Q.5 stereo gaming headset for the past 2 weeks while mostly playing the 3 closed betas I’m currently in, Sleeping Dogs and also while watching various effects-rich Blu-ray movies like the Battleship and The Avengers. Right next to it i have my all-time favorite AX Pro Dolby 5.1 Surround Headset by TRITTON so as you can understand the competition is quite hard.
  • Pros: - Build Quality (Metal Body), - Audio Clarity, - 3 EQ Presets, - Detachable Noise Cancelling Microphone, - Size, - Design, - Comfortable, - USB and 3.5" Cables
  • Cons: - Price (For Some), - No Audio Control Panel

Benchmark Reviews
4 December 2012
  • 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. Since this is a plug-and-play headset, it requires no software installations, no computer restarts, and can be carried from computer to computer easily.
  • 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 Cyborg F.R.E.Q. 5

29 November 2012
  • Summary: Det tar ikke mange sekunder å skjønne hvem som har laget Cyborg F.R.E.Q. 5 første gang du ser på det. Mad Catz' første egenproduserte hodesett passer rett inn i familien med resten av selskapets finurlige og spennende produkter, hvor spillmus som R.A.T. 9 og R.A.T. har hjulpet å sette dem på kartet. Hodesettet Cyborg F.R.E.Q. 5 er laget for spillere, og er et ekstremt solid produkt. Hodebøylen er av solid metall, og detaljer er dekket av matt, svart plast og myke puter.

Mad Catz Cyborg F.R.E.Q. 5

10 September 2012
  • Summary: Hersteller Mad Catz hat sich beim neuen Cyborg Headset keine großen Patzer erlaubt. Das F.R.E.Q. 5 bietet eine außergewöhnlich gute Verarbeitungsqualität, einen klaren Stereo-Sound und eine exzellente Sprachqualität. Darüber hinaus weiß das futuristische Design zu gefallen, welches das Headset einzigartig am Markt macht. Lediglich der happige Verkaufspreis trübt den positiven Gesamteindruck etwas. Christoph meint: Sehr gutes Headset für Spieler!
  • Pros: top Verarbeitung, klarer und präziser Stereo-Sound, hoher Tragekomfort, top Sprachqualität, abnehmbares Mikrofon, Dual-Anschluss (USB oder 3.5mm Klinke), auch geeignet für Smartphones, cooles Design
  • Cons: teuer, Bass könnte etwas kräftiger sein, Ohren fangen schnell zum Schwitzen an, hoher Anpressdruck (ungeeignet für Brillenträger)
