No, there's nothing particularly mysterious about them now, but those retro cans are the first consumer product by mod genius (and Engadget
contributor) Ben Heck
, hinted at through a veil of secrecy
in late April. The Audio FX Pro 5+1 Headset sports a USB connection, an integrated 5.1 surround sound decoder and force feedback tech that allows you to feel frequencies that are too low for humans to hear. So ... superpowers.
It's coming in July, but you can pre-order it right here
for $80. The audio works with PS3 (just not the mic) but the 360 looks to be a no go. Now, Ben, just finish up your Wii Laptop that makes iced tea and hoverboards, and we'll see what we can do about that Nobel Prize.
