Audio products, it’s what we know about AVerMedia due to their creativity behind their Sound x Vision focus, which includes their digital video and audio lines that can be seen across the world in schools, industrial buildings, and homes today. They’re known for high-end products and standing behind their capabilities as a manufacturer. Today, AVerMedia has revealed that they’ll be expanding their offerings to video gamers around the world with a pair of introductory headsets.
Both headsets will feature oversized 50mm neodymium drivers in order to deliver some of the most powerful sounds to date. In order to deliver entirely different approaches for both headsets, AVerMedia has announced that the stereo SonicWave GH335 will feature analog audio and microphone connections alongside its oversized drivers and closed back design in order to help you focus with your tasks at hand. Opposite of this approach is the GH337, which comes bundled with the AVerMedia Sound Engine software, allowing players to get the most out of their virtual 7.1 surround sound audio mixes while gaming.
This approach will give gamers the tools needed in order to immerse themselves and easily locate their opponents when playing some of today’s biggest hits including PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Call of Duty: WWII and Fortnite: Battle Royale. The GH337 will also come with LED lighting on its outer rims, giving it a special bit of flair while you’re gaming.
Both devices will take full advantage of a rotating omnidirectional boom mic, however, the GH337 will also feature a strategically placed secondary microphone, which comes with the latest in noise reduction technology, allowing your friends to hear you loud, clear, and without the hassle of background noise when gaming or even streaming.
