Cooler Master has announced the introduction of the Pitch, the brand’s very first in-ear gaming headset. Yes, headset.
Evidently, Cooler Master wants to do things right when it comes to the Pitch’s sound output. It is fitted with 10mm drivers because they were “the largest we could fit into in-ear headphones, delivering crystal clear sound and powerful bass.” And it’s not just the size of the drivers that should contribute towards having “crystal clear sound and powerful bass“: The drivers’ solid metal casing, which is first anodized and then electrically plated, and three sizes of rubber cap design should also endow it with effective passive noise cancellation that is, Cooler Master claims, capable of “besting some active noise canceling systems on the market.”
The Pitch also features an in-line microphone+control box. About this feature, Cooler Master says: “The built-in high sensitivity Microphone records clear audio within a limited range to avoid background noise. An intuitive design make it a breeze to switch between music or games and phone calls.” The cable itself is tangle-free as well, per the company.
Included in the package for the Pitch are several handy add-ons: An audio/mic Y-splitter for PCs; the aforementioned two additional ear tips; and a snap-lock pouch where you can store the Pitch and its accessories.
The Pitch is available in mid-July, but where, we’re uncertain. Cooler Master has told us that it’s a “regional product”, so it might not be made available in the US, at least not at the current time. MSRP is $29.95.
