Today is the big day for Func with the release of their first gaming headset, the gorgeous HS-260. The headset follws the much-anticipated product launches from Func’s 1030² Series and hits the market alongside their first mechanical keyboard, the KB-460.
Func are brand new to the gaming peripherals market and while they are a completely new company they are in fact the gaming division of PSU and chassis manufacturer Fractal Designs, albeit a team that is doing their own thing, completely separate from the Fractal brand, but still willing to bring every bit of design, style and build quality that their component brand is famed for.
“The HS-260 has been designed to help you through long gaming sessions with comfortable, breathable ear cups and an extremely accurate sound image. The closed ear cup design blocks background noise allowing you to stay focused on your game, while the intuitive controls are located on the ear cup for easy access allowing you to keep your eyes focused on the screen, eliminating distractions. The added features of the removable microphone and detachable cord solution ensure that you have a well-rounded, multi-functional gaming headset.” said Func in today’s press release.
At a price of $79.95 / £59.99 the headset is entering a fiercely competitive sector of the market, where it will be going head to head with many great offerings from rival brands, so it will be interesting to see how well the new brand competes with more established names. As you can see from the specification below, the HS-260 packs big and powerful drivers, an extra long cable and a perfectly respectable price tag. Even better for you all is that we’ve already got the headset in the eTeknix office, it has been reviewed and you should keep a keen eye on the site for the review later today!
