Should you buy the Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 7 Surround Sound?

PCGameBenchmark has reviewed pretty much every PC gaming headset available on Amazon. We've ignored some of the smaller and generic brands. We've filtered to only show the best gaming headsets wireless and wired available to buy right now - this Mad Catz gaming headset made our 2020 list.

Now's a great time to buy a new PC gaming headset. So many games are enhanced with great audio, there are always Mad Catz deals to be had (no need to wait for Black Friday 2020) and there's a massive range to chose from. High quality sound is super important when you’re playing and the speakers built into gaming monitors are pretty rubbish. If you’re looking to hear someone creep up on you in Fortnite or love the bass on Apex Legends, you need a proper immersive audio experience and the privacy that brings.

This red headset weighs 1.65 lb (0.75 kg).

PCGameBenchmark ratings are built up from the scores the Amazon community give the most important aspects of a PC gaming headset. We merge those scores to create a percentage rating.
