The firms new PS500MM headset is set to debut in mid-December at $99. It measures 5.62" x 5.43" x 1.96"and weighs only 2.64 ounces. The headphones ship with a wireless USB adapter and include a pair of 3.5mm jacks.
"We designed this innovative new headset specifically with PC gamers in mind,” said Able Planet’s chairman and CEO Kevin Semcken. "Gamers tend to spend significant periods of time playing online games and such extended play of rich multimedia sounds puts a cumulative strain on the ears this can cause hearing loss and fatigue. Our technology minimizes this risk so that users no longer have to turn up the volume just to be able to drown out background noise."
