Talk To People On Black Ops With A MadCatz Headset

For those of you that play Call of Duty games and especially Black Ops, Mad Catz have announced three headsets that are due to be released in time for Christmas and to be quite honest with you, for what they cost, they would be classed as a main present, unless you’re rich and think spending £100 on a headset is nothing.

Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz commented, “We are excited to introduce our new range of Call of Duty: Black Ops headset based on our TRITTON pro-gaming audio technology. The new range delivers the best audio experience as well as providing the Call of Duty: Black Ops enthusiast an exclusively licensed pro-gaming headset. The new headsets are part of our continued strategy to marry our pro-gaming technologies with world-class licenses to bring unique products to market that consumers are passionate about.”
