A new headset that lets gamers listen to multiplayer voice chat and game audio is heading to market.
Accessories firm I-Globe is targeting FPS nuts and fans of Halo: Reach, Medal of Honor and Call of Duty with its GX1 and GP1 Gaming Headsets.
The GX1 Gaming Headset for Xbox 360 allows gamers to hear both in-game sound and live chat at once. It also boasts foldable ear pads designed for long-period gaming, integrated bass-boost, separate volume controls and a mute function.
For PS3 owners I-Globe is providing the GP1 Gaming Headset, which offers the same features as the Xbox 360 headset but also boasts an LED on/off mute indicator.
Both headsets include a USB cable for easy connection, while their independent 3.5mm microphone and line audio plugs make them compatible with PCs.
“It is great to have some new hi-tech peripherals entering the games market for both the customer and also for I-Globe,” said I-Globe Accessories’ head of business development Paul Hay.
“It will be really exciting to see how both products make an impact this Q4 and into 2011, and enhance gamers’ experiences.”
The GX1 Xbox 360 headset is expected to arrive at retail late September, while the GP1 PS3 device will be launched at the end of October. Both have an SRP of £29.99.
