The F.R.E.Q. 7 boasts Dolby Headphone Technology and Dolby Pro Logic IIx technology, which transforms 5.1 audio into 7.1 surround sound. One of the unique features of the headset is the option to toggle back and forth between surround sound and stereo. That makes them optimum for "use with gaming, movies, music and more."

According to a statement by president and CEO of Mad Catz Interactive Inc. Darren Richardson we received by email:

“Part of our GameSmart initiative, we believe the F.R.E.Q. 7 offers uncompromising levels of performance and versatility which will resonate with the passionate gamer.”

There's several different settings thanks to the F.R.E.Q. 7's software driven EQ. Additionally, you're able to change game and chat volumes separately. A detachable in-line cable allows owners to switch between USB to 3.5mm so they can also use the device for stereo audio on most smartphones and tablets.

Bundled with a desktop stand, the F.R.E.Q. 7 will come in four colors: Matte black, gloss black, gloss white and gloss red colors.
