MSI (MicroStar International), a popular computer manufacturer based in Taiwan that is active in the development of gaming PCs and gaming devices, released a high-resolution audio gaming headset "IMMERSE GH61" with 40mm drivers from ONKYO, a popular Japanese audio manufacturer. The " IMMERSE GH61 " gaming headset was released on Monday, October 19, 2020.
Main features of the IMMERSE GH61
While it is not unusual for computer and device manufacturers to release gaming headsets, there has been an increase in the number of audio manufacturers, such as JBL and ONKYO, entering the market on their own.
In fact, gaming headsets produced by audio manufacturers are of high quality and reasonably priced.
However, the fact that MSI, a company with a strong presence in gaming PCs and gaming devices, has chosen to use drivers from audio manufacturer ONKYO is sure to raise expectations.
The features of the "IMMERSE GH61" released this time are as follows.
Adoption of ONKYO's 40mm driver
As mentioned above, the 40mm driver is ideal for gaming headsets and delivers clear sound quality with little noise.
Built-in ESS Sabre DAC and amplifier, and overwhelming sound image localization by Nahimic
The built-in ESS Sabre DAC and amplifier improve DNR (dynamic range) by more than 1.3 times and THD (total harmonic distortion) by a factor of 100.
In addition, it uses 3D sound technology with "Nahimic" sound utility software.
The 3D sound is so accurate that you can grasp the direction and distance of the sound, and the powerful and three-dimensional sound will bring a sense of realism to the game scene.
USB/3.5mm jack compatibility allows for use with any device
The speakers can be connected to both USB and 3.5mm jacks, allowing them to be used not only with PCs, but also with consumer devices, smartphones, and a variety of other devices.
Foldable & comes with a dedicated case
The "IMMERSE GH61" can be folded and stored compactly in a dedicated carry case.
It is also equipped with a retractable flexible microphone, which can be stored in the earcaps when not in use.
