Mad Catz is adding to its line of Cyborg gaming peripherals with the Freq 5, a new gaming headset with some flexible features. Utilizing a similar design language as the Rat line of gaming mice — all jagged corners and metal accents — the USB headset features 50mm drivers with neodymium magnets, a removable noise-canceling microphone, and microphone, volume, and equalizer controls built right into one of the earpieces. You can also swap out the USB cord with the included 3.5mm audio cable, turning the Freq 5 into a standard audio headset that can be used with an MP3 player or for making calls on your smartphone (strangely, the headset is listed as being compatible with the iPhone, and HTC and BlackBerry devices only). No pricing is available just yet, but the Freq 5 is expected to ship this spring.
