Harman has launched the US$79.95 AKG GHS-1 portable gaming headset (http://macte.ch/ZwhnX). It’s designed specifically for the gamer and features “innovative audio engineering built into a distinctive, long-lasting and intuitive design for the ideal gaming experience,” says David Slump, president, Harman Consumer Division.
Lightweight and designed for long-wearing comfort, the headset features a boom microphone that filters out background noise. Passive noise reduction effectively seals out most ambient sounds, according to Slump. The headset also features a cardioid (directional) boom microphone that filters out background noises.
The in-line microphone is designed so that the volume can be adjusted right on the cable, which reduces the need for players to interact with the game console or other source throughout the game. The AKG GHS-1 portable headset is available in three color combinations: black and orange; white and green; and camouflage and blue.
