Ear buds traditionally don’t come with the best sound quality and that is why most people opt for the larger full-size version in order to get that satisfying sounds. Mad Catz latest offering looks like it could mix that up a bit with the release of a the new E.S.Pro 1 gaming earbuds with tournament-grade quality, as they call it.
The E.S.Pro 1 uses larger than usual 13.5mm speakers to deliver better sound than conventional ear buds with an increased bass response and clearer highs. The ear buds feature two different microphones and you can use whichever you prefer and switch as you wish. There is the simple and discreet in-line microphone and there is also a removable omni-directional boom microphone that is ideal when chat is of primary importance.
The 2-meter long cable features an easy to reach remote control unit that allows you to change the volume, mute the chat, and control the track selection for your music pleasure. The In-line microphone also features automatic noise and echo suppression.
The added size requires a good fit and the E.S.Pro 1 come with soft-rubber support arms that are designed to gently fit inside the ear and prevent the earbuds from falling out during heated gaming sessions. To aid with comfort and acoustic isolation, the E.S.Pro 1 also comes with optional earbud attachments designed to fit virtually any size ear.
The new Mad Catz E.S.Pro 1 gaming earbuds are expected to ship in January 2016. Included in the package are a standard 3.5mm cable and PC audio adapter that allows you to connect it with almost any audio device from PC over mobile to gaming consoles.
