We’ve previously seen Thrustmaster deliver Ghost Recon themed headsets to the masses, but now they are back and teaming up with Ubisoft once more with the addition of two new Limited Edition Far Cry 5 gaming headsets. They look pretty damn neat too.
Due to release alongside the launch of Far Cry 5 on March 27th 2018 are two universal headsets that combine the Thrustmaster expertise with the thrill of the Far Cry experience from Hope County, Montana.
The have been specially designed to ensure teams can cooperate as they rally together and infiltrate the wonderful world of Far Cry 5. Officially licensed, both the Y-350CPX and Y-300CPX will allow gamers across the globe to take in the intensity and action found within Far Cry 5.
Details of each are below:
‘Y-350CPX 7.1 Powered Far Cry 5 Edition’: The Ultimate Weapon
With the Y-350CPX 7.1 Powered Far Cry 5 Edition, Thrustmaster offers a high-end headset with unmatched performance sporting the distinctive colours and look of Far Cry 5. The Y-350CPX provides high-resolution audio with perfect reproduction of bass frequencies for optimal rendering of in-game explosions, balanced mids for stable transmission of other players’ voices, and unsaturated treble for crystal-clear sounds of incoming fire.
The Y-350CPX Far Cry 5 Edition will be players’ must-have hardware when used in co-op, a mode that Far Cry 5 is all about: your teammates will be able to count on you with an efficient mic and the fine-tuned 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound.
The Y-350CPX 7.1 Powered Far Cry 5 Edition headset boasts an impressive range of features to help players team up to confront the game’s formidable, emblematic characters:
- High-performance microphone: unidirectional, detachable and adjustable. Designed to target the player’s voice only, for the most effective communication with teammates, and the least amount of interference.
- Y Sound Commander unit for customizable control of the integrated 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound technology, an on/off mic switch, and the ability to toggle hearing your own voice through the headset on or off.
- 60 mm/2.36” drivers for the most powerful bass available in the console gaming market.
- Memory foam cushions for effective passive isolation, combined with electronic bass boost built into the controller, provides double electro-acoustic bass amplification.
- Professional-grade fit and finish with memory foam cushions, noise-reducing foam microphone cover and a red, white and blue braided cable.
Y-300CPX Far Cry 5 Edition: A Must Have Headset
The Y-300CPX Far Cry 5 Edition is the high-fidelity stereo version of the Y-350CPX model. The Y-300CPX ensures a perfect balance between bass, mids and treble thanks to very high-performance audio rendering, with an ideal frequency response curve for the soundscape in Far Cry 5. Using this headset, co-op teams will have all of their senses on high alert in the game’s particularly demanding environments:
- Unidirectional, detachable and adjustable microphone, for perfect customization.
50 mm/1.97” drivers.
- Exclusive double electro-acoustic bass amplification technology.
- Multifunctional controller to adjust the game’s audio levels, as well as the bass level.
You’ll find that these cans are very reasonably priced too, with the Y-350CPX 7.1 Powered Far Cry 5 Edition coming in with a suggested price of £89.99, and the Y-300CPX Far Cry 5 Edition for £49.99.
Should history prove anything – and we were rather taken in by Thrustmaster’s Ghost Recon Wildlands offering – then chances are these are two headsets which will happily sort out any budding Far Cry 5 player. Of course, you don’t only have to use them with Far Cry 5 though and these will work with any game on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
