Thrustmaster peripheral developer releases new line of gaming headsets

Peripheral designer and production company Thrustmaster will release a new line of gaming headsets soon, the company announced today.

Each headset will cost $89.99 and will be available through all major retailers "shortly," according to a company press release.

Buyers will have their choice between the Y-250X model designed for use with the Xbox 360, the Y-250P for PlayStation 3 and the Y-250C for PC. The headsets have also been tested for compatibility with the Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation Vita, MP3 players and smartphones.

Thrustmaster says the headsets were designed in a Y shape with large earpieces to achieve complete isolation and block out all sound from a gamer's environment. They incorporate 50 mm audio drivers tuned for bass responses from mid-range frequencies, which the company says will amplify far-off sounds and improve the clarity of voices. Microphones are unidirectional and detachable and feature controls to adjust isensitivity depending on surrounding noise levels. Users can also separately adjust chat volume, bass level and voice feedback on the Xbox 360 and PS3 headsets. PC headsets include an additional option for changing in-game volume.

A complete list of specifications for each product can be found on Thrustmaster's official website.
