Mad Catz Headsets to use AM3D Technology

Mad Catz Headsets will soon be using a new type of technology to provide gamers with surround sound from a distance.  AM3D technology will allow gamers to no longer be tied to their headset cables for quality sound, but rather connect over bluetooth and have the freedom to move without the limitation of cables.  This likely has something to do with their recent partnership in developing gaming headsets for Microsoft’s Xbox One.

Mad Catz Headsets AM3D Technology

Mad Catz provided Tom’s Hardware with a tid bit of information before their official announcement.  Mad Catz Headsets will be using AM3D technology in their headsets.  AM3D technology will allow Mad Catz headsets to deliver crisp surround sound audio over bluetooth.  Like most headsets out there, Mad Catz headsets will not be a true surround sound, but will rely on AM3D’s technology to convert the audio to a virtual surround sound.

Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. stated, “We believe the audio technology provided by AM3D will prove ideal for use in gaming applications, allowing us to deliver precision surround sound via Bluetooth on our GameSmart range of mobile accessories.”  So basically, they opted to provide you with a high quality virtual surround sound, over true surround sound, so you can game without the hassle of cables.  Typically headsets that provide true surround sound are wired, and come with a nice sized amp to amplify the audio. (That’s kind of redundant huh?)

While I’ve personally never used Mad Catz products, I do know they typically bring a very unique design style to the table, and I’m looking forward to seeing what else they can do in the headset market.  I know their previous 7.1 and 5.1 surround sound wired headsets were not only cheaper than competitors, but also provided excellent sound quality.
