SPEEDLINK Medusa NX 5.1 Gaming Headset
360° surround sound - Sound and audio quality further improved
Four speakers per earcup produce outstanding 5.1 surround sound. Enhancements made to the separate bass, front, rear and centre speakers mean that sounds coming from different directions can be pinpointed with almost total accuracy: hear an opponent creeping up on you from behind to the right or a car racing past you to the left. Sound is a key feature during gameplay: gamers will be able to hear their opponents and pinpoint them without needing to see them!
The improved bass vibration feature can be felt in more detail and is noticeable particularly when hefty explosions are going off or with the crack of muzzle blasts. Demanding audiophiles will be pleased to know that they can individually adjust the sound settings of each sound channel (front - right/left, rear - right/left, center and subwoofer) as well as control the master volume and mute the microphone directly on the in-line remote.
Highest level of comfort for extended sound enjoyment
The comfortable earcups completely envelop the ears and ensure the headset sits perfectly on the head. Thanks to the flexible headband and padded earcups, the Medusa NX 5.1 Gaming Headset always remains comfortable on the head even after many hours - and with its 3.8m cable, the headset offers lots of freedom of movement. Compared to its predecessor, the wiring harness has been improved which now means fears about the cable breaking are a thing of the past. In addition, the flexible noise-cancelling microphone delivers impressive voice transmission quality.
Full performance from the PC's 5.1 soundcard
The full performance of the PC's 5.1 soundcard is unleashed when the Medusa NX 5.1 Gaming Headset is connected to it. Three jack plugs are connected to the front, rear as well as subwoofer and center sockets, while one jack plug is connected to the microphone input. Power is supplied via the USB port. If no USB ports are available, the headset can be powered by the accompanying mains adapter. The Medusa NX 5.1 Gaming Headset can also playback music and audio from stereo sources without a problem.
Enjoy DVDs with the Medusa NX 5.1 Gaming Headset
The Medusa NX 5.1 Gaming Headset can be connected to a DVD player for undisturbed film enjoyment at home. Film fans can enjoy the full cinematic surround sound experience without disturbing those around them - or being disturbed themselves. The cable with the relevant phono plugs needed for connecting to the stereo or 5.1 connector on DVD players is also included.
First-class stereo sound from CD players
The Medusa NX 5.1 Gaming Headset is also a real all-rounder in terms of what you can connect it to. A whole world of music awaits - which can be enjoyed simply by connecting the headset to a CD player using one of the Medusa's jack plugs. Consequently, the Medusa NX 5.1 Gaming Headset can also be used as a normal stereo headset without any problems. And if the headset needs to be powered, the mains adapter can be used.
The in-line remote offers the ultimate in convenience
The volume of the individual speakers and the subwoofer can be adjusted using the in-line remote. Fine-tuning of the microphone volume and audio playback volume can be done using the Windows Volume Control panel. In addition, the in-line remote also houses the amplifier - thereby avoiding the need for a separate cumbersome unit.
Take your Medusa NX 5.1 Gaming Headset with you
A high-quality case is provided for transporting the headset to LAN parties or protecting it while on the move. The earcups simply fold in, which allows the Medusa NX 5.1 Gaming Headset to be stored safely and securely while also saving space.
The Medusa NX 5.1 Gaming Headset will be available from March 2009 for the RRP of EUR 79.99.
