MSI Introduces DS502 7.1 USB Gaming Headset



The new DS502 gaming headset from MSI is unique in that it seems to be feature-heavy with 7.1 virtual surround audio, inline control, omnidirectional microphone and 40mm drivers but quite physically lightweight at only 405 grams so that gamers will not feel as strained after long periods of use. The DS502 uses an open ear design which is ideal for gaming and with the CMedia audio processor via USB, users can tailor the DS502’s functions via a customized MSI Xear utility.

MSRP is only $69.99 and should hit most major retailers soon. This move from MSI makes sense considering they are well deep into the gaming scene and instead of relying on partners such as Steelseries like they have done in the past with special edition headsets, they have full control of the product featureset:

The brand new DS502 Gaming Headset features Enhanced Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound for the ultimate immersive gaming experience. Its 40mm High Quality Drivers provide crystal clear Hi-Fi sound quality. Additionally, the Cmedia Xear software offers an extensive array of presets, preferences and includes a 10-band equalizer. Vibration is added for an even more immersive experience, so you can actually feel loud explosions happening around you.

A noise-cancelling, adjustable and omnidirectional microphone with balanced natural sounding tones allows you to communicate clearly with your friends or teammates. The tough braided cable features an in-line remote which allows gamers to control volume, mute their microphone and turn vibration on or off with a single button. The DS502 headset offers premium build quality, lightweight and ergonomically designed with a self-adjusting headband which ensures a comfortable fit during extended gaming sessions. Next to an impressive sound quality and abundance of features, the DS502 completes its cool looks with an LED illuminated MSI GAMING dragon.
