Avermedia, best known for their streaming and capture hardware, have been making moves into audio recently.
That began with a more traditional multi-speaker desktop setup, and a desktop microphone which looks like a conference room telephone, and claims to be immune to background speaker noise.
Moving into a more mainstream space, Avermedia followed those up with some rather nice soundbars – that are designed to work well for gaming and movies – and a wireless subwoofer. Back with a strictly gaming hat on again, they complemented the lineup with a USB microphone.
Today, Avermedia have extended their audio ambitions into gaming headsets, with the GH335 and GH337 headsets. The GH335 is a straightforward, stereo affair, whereas the GH337 comes with virtual 7.1 surround.
Here are the full specs for both devices:
- Tuned Acoustics for Gaming: Oversized 50mm neodymium drivers with 20–20K Hz response, 97±3 dB sensitivity (@ 1 kHz), 32 Ω impedance
- Stay Focused on the Game: Closed-back design puts the game front and center
- Sensitive Microphone: Omnidirectional pickup pattern with a Ø 6.0 x 2.8 mm capsule; ≤ 2200 Ω and 38 ±3 dB sensitivity
- Compatible with all Analog Interfaces: 4-pole 3.5 mm audio jack and 3.5 microphone jack with splitter cable work with PC, PS4™ and Xbox One™ consoles and mobile (some Xbox One controllers may require a stereo adapter; sold separately)
- In-Line Controls: Volume and microphone mute switches
- Lightweight and Comfortable: Only 340 g / 11.9 oz with 2.2 m / 7.2 ft cable
- MSRP: US$59.99
- 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound Audio with AVerMedia Sound Engine: Pinpoint your opponents and stay immersed in your surroundings
- High Quality Audio Specs: Oversized 50mm neodymium drivers with 20–20K Hz response, 97±3 dB sensitivity (@ 1 kHz), 32 Ω impedance
- Dual Microphone for Noise Reduction: Ignore ambient noise and hear your teammates clearly; omnidirectional pattern with ≤ 2200 Ω impedance and 38 ±3 dB sensitivity
- Supports PC and Latest Consoles via USB 2.0 / 3.0: Including Xbox One™ X and PS4™ Pro
- Full In-line Controls: Volume, microphone mute and LED on/off
- Comfort and Flexibility: 370 g / 13.05 oz weight with 2.2 m / 7.2 ft cable to give you room to move
- MSRP: US$79.99
Which, when they release in the UK, should put the GH335 and GH337 at around £45 and £60 respectively; Brexit depending, of course.
They also look rather nice, though the GH337, with its USB interface, also lights up. Because why wouldn’t it?
