Kowloon, Hong Kong – February 20th, 2019, – Mad Catz Global Limited, leading gaming hardware innovators for nearly 30 years, today announced European shipping of the all-new E.S.Pro+ Gaming Earbuds, the first audio product to ship from the reborn Mad Catz Global.

A radical new take on gaming audio, the E.S. Pro+ Gaming Earbuds forgo the standard headset design, swapping the weight and bulk associated with regular headsets, and instead fitting securely in the ear to provide a versatile, lightweight and highly portable audio solution, ideal for tournament play.

Simple plug-and-play design allows the Earbuds to be plugged into any PC, and feature enlarged 13.5mm speaker drivers with a choice of microphone options, providing crystal-clear clarity for online chat. A built-in microphone provides superb chat quality for most situations, but for those gaming professionally, the detachable boom microphone sits near the mouth offering even greater communication in close quarters.

The E.S. Pro+ Gaming Earbuds ship with an assortment of different earbud sizes, allowing the gamer to customize to the shape of their own ears. Unlike regular in-ear earbuds, the E.S. Pro+ Gaming Earbuds are designed to stay put during even the most frantic of gaming sessions, with ergonomic arms gently holding the earbuds in place, ensuring a tug of the 1.5-meter-long cable won’t dislodge the earbuds from the gamers’ ear. In-line volume and mute buttons provide controls at the gamers’ fingertips.

Selena Chang, Director of Sales and Operations for Mad Catz Global Limited commented, “Gaming audio is the leading category in gaming accessories at present, driven largely by the success of Fortnite™ and other Battle Royale games. There is a lot of choice in this sector, but surprisingly little variety and we believe the E.S. Pro+ Gaming Earbuds gives gamers a refreshingly different way to enjoy premium chat and audio over sustained gaming sessions. We are pleased to be shipping our Earbuds across Europe and look forward to increasing our market share in the audio sector.”

The new E.S. Pro+ Gaming Earbuds are available from leading gaming retailers including, Saturn and LECLERC.
