Mad Catz® Ships Tritton® ARK™ 100 Wired 7.1 Headset for PC

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 21, 2017-- Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. (“Mad Catz” or “the Company”) (NYSE MKT: MCZ), a global provider of innovative entertainment products, today announced that it has commenced shipment of its new Tritton ARK 100 Wired 7.1 Headset for PC to its retail customers.

Connecting via USB, the ARK 100 for PC features advanced audio customization software, which places the gamer center stage and fully in control of the audio environment. The 7.1 surround sound is delivered through 60 mm and 10 mm drivers in each earcan, providing a full 360 degrees of positional awareness, while a boom microphone with dual chat mic system works to cancel out background noise and improve the clarity of the player's voice and communications with teammates and other players.

Like the ARK 100 Wired Stereo Headset for PS4 and Xbox One, the ARK 100 for PC showcases three key innovations:

  • Audionomics – A unique, dynamic mono-curve design that unifies audio fidelity and ergonomics to achieve the ultimate experience in sound and comfort;
  • R:Drive – Multiple frequency-specific speakers in each earcup, tuned by a three-mode equalizer, that combine to deliver a powerful, compromise-free immersive sound experience; and,
  • Kameleon – Motion-dynamic RGB lighting that allows users to easily customize the illumination and look of the headset.

“The ARK 100 for PC raises the bar for PC gaming headset audio quality, durability and comfort,” said Andrew Young, Chief Technology Officer at Mad Catz. “Whether it be the unique comfort resulting from Audionomics, the superior audio performance of R:Drive, or the customizability provided by Kameleon lighting, the ARK 100 for PC is designed to deliver the comfort, audio quality and customization that PC gamers seek for optimum performance and gameplay enjoyment.”

The ARK 100 Wired 7.1 Headset for PC joins the existing ARK series of innovative gaming headsets — the ARK 100 Wired Stereo Headset for PS4 and Xbox One — that began shipping in October 2016.
