The Afterglow headsets feature a dual suspension headband that eliminates lateral pressure on the ears and head, a retractable noise cancelling microphone, and cutting edge wireless technology that eliminates pops, hisses, and dropped signals. In addition, the headsets feature large, 50mm Neodymium® speakers that sit inside an angled acoustic cavity tuned by an award-winning Hollywood audio post-production facility. The custom designed speakers are calibrated for audio depth, sonic richness, and clarity of sound. Both versions of the Afterglow headset feature three distinct audio modes:
- Pure Audio: Enjoy your game audio content in its original form at the highest possible quality.
- Bass Boost: If you appreciate earth-shaking explosions, Bass Boost will give low-end frequencies a boost without losing high-end clarity.
- Immersive: Introducing PDP’s proprietary 3D sound algorithm. With a capable DSP on board, a team of acoustic engineers and artists created this sound mode after extensive research and development. This mode expands the size of virtual environments without distorting the directionality, creating an immersive experience for the listener that’s only one step short of being there.
