The F.R.E.Q. 7 is equipped with 50mm neodymium magnet speakers and features Dolby Headphone Technology to deliver 7.1 surround sound with 3D audio landscape and the Dolby Pro Logic IIx processing to up-mix stereo content to the surround sound channels. There is a button on the earcup for users to toggle between stereo and surround sound with a simple press. The headset also comes with a detachable noise-cancelling microphone for users to communicate with online teammaters. The mic has red LED illumination for mute notification.
