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

17 April 2014
  • Summary: The F.R.E.Q. 5 headset is a solid performer as both a traditional and gaming headset. The setup is a snap, the construction quality is very good, bass response is fantastic, and overall comfort is acceptable. We found the F.R.E.Q. 5 better suited for gaming than a portable headset just because of the weight (and partially because of the styling).
  • Pros: Easy Setup:, Construction:, Great Bass Response:, Versatile:, Good Passive Noise Cancellation:
  • Cons: Controls:, Long-Term Comfort:

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

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). I was hoping for the addition of control software but that wasn't the case.
  • 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 Control Software, - Glossy Exterior And Color May Not Appeal To Everyone

MadCatz F.R.E.Q.5 Red PC Headset Review

4 March 2013
  • Conclusion: It’s not often I get to revisit a product that I have reviewed, in fact it’s only happened about 3 times in the last year but it gives me a great chance to reflect and see if my own opinion of that product has changed over time, especially as there is a chance that something new, better or simply cooler may come along and change my original opinion.

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

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

Cyborg F.R.E.Q. 5 Stereo Gaming Headset PC Review

8 September 2012
  • Conclusion: So overall a great performance from Cyborg, their F.R.E.Q.5 headset head up perfectly in our tests, and while they not be the best headset ever in terms of sound quality, that’s no bad thing, performance is more than you would get with most headsets and that is something that is reflected in the price, while there are better headsets on the market, you can expect to pay more for that privilege.

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

Canadian Online Gamers
2 September 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.  So when Mad Catz delivered the F.R.E.Q. 5 to my home office, I was very skeptical and went in thinking who in their right mind would drop this kind of coin into such a headset.

Headset Cyborg F.R.E.Q. 5 Stereo (Mad Catz)

27 March 2014
  • 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. Wir werden fliegen, eine Gatling wird rattern, ein Helikopter vor uns wird wild mit seinen Rotoren schlagen und sich der Sound des Vierzylinders in unsere Ohren pressen. Können wir das Mad Catz Cyborg F.R.E.Q. 5. Headset zum Stereokönig küren?
