Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Cougar has been delivering some of the coolest and most competitive gaming peripherals on the market in recent years, with an extensive range of gaming mice and keyboards that are proving a smash hit with gamers around the world. Now they’re diving head-first into the world of desktop audio with the launch of their powerful IMMERSA gaming headset.
“COUGAR IMMERSA’s unique suspended leatherlike headband design allows you to reach new levels of comfort. Built with carefully chosen materials, IMMERSA’s ultra lightweight will allow you to wear it for extended periods of time without experiencing any kind of discomfort. The 100mm ear pads will always keep your ears comfortably covered and isolated from external noise. To fit all head shapes and sizes, IMMERSA´s flexible structure and automatic omni-directional adaptation will allow it to perform a 360º adjustments to maximize your comfort.” – Cougar
Equipped with two powerful 40mm drivers, 100mm over-ear isolation ear cups, a retractable boom noise-cancelling condenser microphone, on-cable controls, and a multi-device compatible 4-pole 3.5mm cable, the IMMERSA are certainly ticking all the right boxes for a well-rounded gaming headset.
The specs certainly sound promising, so let’s grab the box and take a much closer look at what is on offer.
Packaging and Accessories
The box is very nicely designed, with a cool photo of the headset on the front, as well as a large side window that allows you to see the actual size and design of the headset; handy if you’re shopping for one in a retail store.
Around the back, a quick breakdown of the specifications and features, but we’ll take a closer look at those in a moment.
The headset comes hard-wired with a good length black braided cable. I would prefer a detachable cable, but this is hardly a deal breaker.
The cable comes with a 4-pole 3.5mm cable, meaning you can use it on mobile devices, consoles and more with ease, but also comes with a Y-split dual 3-pole 3.5mm adaptor so you can use it on PC and more.
The in-line controller is fairly straightforward, but still a welcome addition. It features a master microphone mute switch and a volume dial.
