Mad Catz® Ships the F.R.E.Q.TE™ Stereo Gaming Headset For PC And Mac

Tournament Grade Headset Delivers Competitive Edge through Precise Gaming Audio

San Diego – January 5, 2015 – Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. (“Mad Catz”) (NYSE MKT/TSX: MCZ) announced today the shipping of the F.R.E.Q.TE Stereo Gaming Headset for PC and Mac.

Part of the Company’s Tournament Edition range of high performance gaming products, the F.R.E.Q.TE has been designed in conjunction with e-sports athletes to deliver a competitive edge when gaming at a professional level.

A custom uni-directional Boom Mic is included, ensuring the voice of the player is conveyed with accuracy and without disruptive background noise typical of a LAN environment.  Precision 50mm speakers sit inside newly designed padded ear cups, featuring memory foam to boost passive noise cancellation so that only the game audio and team mates can be heard during play.

Featuring simple plug-and-play connectivity, the F.R.E.Q.TE uses universal 3.5mm connections to quickly connect to the sound card on either the tournament rig or the gamers’ home machine. No drivers or software are required resulting in minimal fuss.  On ear controls have been positioned for speed and easy access, allowing gamers to adjust game and chat volume with speed.  Tough enough to survive extended gaming sessions, the F.R.E.Q.TE provides the serious gamer with the audio clarity they need to stay ahead of the competition.

Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. stated, “Our Tournament Edition range appeals to the passionate gamer who plays at a professional level.  By focusing on quality and only the features needed to win at a competitive level, we believe the F.R.E.Q.TE will prove a common fixture at LAN tournaments and allow us to grow our share in the rapidly growing e-sports arena.”

The F.R.E.Q. TE will be debuting at CES LV2015 and can be seen via appointment only at the Mad Catz suite, located at the Westgate LV Resort & Casino, suite number: 12121.  Mad Catz will also be unveiling the F.R.E.Q.
