Product Overview

Smarter than The Average Headset

Mad Catz' F.R.E.Q.M Wireless Mobile Gaming Headset delivers clear stereo audio for gaming and media on your mobile devices and PC or Mac, and utilises a host of advanced technology to improve smartphone conversations. Boasting compatibility with Apple products and Bluetooth audio-enabled devices, the F.R.E.Q.M Wireless is an extremely intelligent headset.

Versatile Connection Options

Wireless by design, this version F.R.E.Q.M Bluetooth stereo headphones also provide wired connectivity for situations in which Bluetooth isn’t allowed or available. The included 3.5mm connector cable provides an optional wired connection – perfect for use with smart devices and during air travel. And, courtesy of the included USB charge cable, the headset gains play-and-charge capability when connected to a PC or Mac.

Simultaneous Synchronisation with 2 Devices

Automatic management of audio interaction between two paired devices is now possible. For example, if you're watching a film on a paired tablet and your paired smartphone rings, the film will automatically pause. You are then free to answer the call and manipulate audio via the headset's on-ear controls. Once the call ends, the headset will return focus to the tablet for a seamless transition back to your movie. The ability to intelligently route audio between different gadgets makes the F.R.E.Q.M Wireless the go-to headset for all of your Bluetooth audio-enabled devices.

Supports aptX and AAC Audio Codecs

The F.R.E.Q.M Bluetooth stereo headphones support a CSR-licensed aptX codec. If your device supports aptX, audio comes through the headset's ear cups at CD-quality with low latency.

CSR's aptX technology provides wireless audio quality indistinguishable from wired with an impressive dynamic range, which provides the following benefits:

• Flat Frequency Response - Full audio bandwidth is faithfully reproduced.
• Low Audio Coding Delay - Minimises latency and ‘lip-sync’ issues – very important for gaming and HD video.
• Non-destructive Transcoding - No ‘duelling’ effects with other algorithms.
• Backward Compatibility - When aptX is not available the host device will pair-down to standard A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile)*.
• Growing Support - Including Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One, Motorola RAZR, and Mac OS X.

Designed to be the successor of the MP3 file format, AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) demonstrates greater sound quality and transparency than MP3 for files coded at the same bit rate. AAC files – supported via products such as Apple's iPod and iTunes – sound their best when heard through the F.R.E.Q.M Wireless Headset.

Advanced CVC (Clear Voice Capture) Software Enhances Audio

To ensure the highest quality audio on both ends of the line – for you and anyone you're talking to through the headset's earcup-integrated mic – the F.R.E.Q.M employs CSR's state-of-the-art CVC audio enhancement software. This software improves conversational performance and provides a number of benefits:

• Concealment of Packet Loss and Bit Errors – Improves the quality of received audio by removing pops and clicks.
• Near-end Audio Enhancement – Received audio is further enhanced by noise suppression, adaptive equalization, and automatic gain control.
• Far-end Audio Enhancement – Spoken audio is upgraded by the reduction of background noise and wind noise, plus a reduction in echo generated between speaker and microphone.

Mobile A.P.P. for Smart Devices

Download the Mad Catz mobile A.P.P. onto your Android or iOS device to gain further control of the headset's functionality. Toggle between your choice of five distinct equaliser settings and view product information such as remaining battery life, all from your smartphone.

Instinctive On-Ear Controls

Intuitive placement of all controls provides simple adjustability without the need to remove the headset. Mute the mic, tweak the volume, skip music tracks, answer/end phone calls, and play/pause media – all while keeping your eyes on your paired device.

Expansive Stereo Sound via Amplified 40mm Drivers

Housing oversize speakers which pump out robust stereo sound with a wide dynamic range, comfortable ear cups deliver clean and crisp audio reproduction. Utilising the highest grade of drivers available for use in headsets – Neodymium – the F.R.E.Q.M Wireless feeds high-fidelity audio through a pair of amplified 40mm speakers for deep bass and undistorted highs.

Foldable Design for Enhanced Portability

Smart devices are convenient travel companions and your headset should be no exception. When you're ready to hit the road, F.R.E.Q.M Bluetooth stereo headphones are ready to come along for the ride. Simply fold it up, place it in the included travel pouch and take it everywhere. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery will keep the headset going for up to 24 hours of continuous audio playback.

3.5mm Connector for Smartphones, Tablets, and Portable Gaming Consoles

The included 3.5mm cable permits connection to any device employing 3.5mm audio output – an effective solution for in-flight entertainment options when travelling by plane. And if you have a smartphone*, you can even take calls using the ear cup-integrated microphone.

Innovative GameSmart Technology

Products featuring GameSmart technology function with an array of different mobile devices. GameSmart enables near-universal compatibility with PCs and Macs, as well as the latest generation of iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone handsets, and even tablets such as the Microsoft Surface. And by utilizing Bluetooth technology, GameSmart wireless devices also feature simplified setup and extended battery life. When one product functions with a multitude of devices, you'll find comfort in knowing that adding a new device to your collection won't require yet another purchase.

Compatible with M.O.J.O. Micro-Console for Android

Residing at the center of the GameSmart ecosystem, M.O.J.O. makes your favorite mobile games even better. M.O.J.O. delivers a powerful, console-quality Android gaming experience. See all the fast-paced action in breathtaking HD on your big-screen TV. Hear that catchy background music or those killer sound effects loud and clear, with support for 5.1-channel surround audio.
