Able Planet's new gaming headphones

Able Planet recently unveiled the PS500MM, a new high-fidelity multimedia headset for PC gamers.

Able Planet, known for developing headphones for those with mild to severe hearing loss, recently unveiled a new high-fidelity multimedia headset for PC gamers--the PS500MM.

Able Planet's chairman and CEO, Kevin Semcken, said:

"We designed this innovative new headset specifically with PC gamers in mind. Gamers tend to spend significant periods of time playing online games and such extended play of rich multimedia sounds puts a cumulative strain on the ears this can cause hearing loss and fatigue. Our technology minimizes this risk so that users no longer have to turn up the volume just to be able to drown out background noise."

With noise cancellation technology built directly into the microphone, the headphones measures at 5.62 inches by 5.43 inches by 1.96 inch and weighs 2.64 ounces. The headset has oversized extended-wear leather ear cups and offers one-touch features for controlling volume and microphone functionality.

The PS500MM gaming headphones ships with a USB wireless adapter and comes with two 3.5mm jacks, and will be available in mid-December for $99.
