Harman AKG GHS 1 Headset Offers Sound for the Ultimate Gaming Experience
HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated (NYSE:HAR), today announced the launch of the new AKG
‘When you’re in an all-immersive entertainment experience such as gaming, we understand how important high-quality, realistic sound plays in the overall experience’, said Thijs Linthorst, general manager, HARMAN International EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Asia), Russia and India. ‘The new GHS 1 headset is designed specifically for the gamer and features our world-class audio engineering built into a distinctive, long-lasting and intuitive design for the ideal gaming experience.’
Lightweight and designed for long-wearing comfort, the headset features a boom microphone that filters out most background noise. Passive noise reduction effectively seals out most ambient sounds, providing for an undisturbed overall listening and gaming experience. The headset can also be used with applications such as Skype to make great high-quality Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls.
The GHS 1’s in-line microphone is intelligently designed so that the volume can be conveniently adjusted right on the cable, which reduces the need for players to interact with the game console or any other source throughout the game.
The AKG GHS 1 portable headset will be available in autumn 2010 for €99 and will come in three colour combinations: black, white and fancy camouflage. For more information, please visit www.akg.com.
