Two New Headsets by Austrian Audio: PG16 Pro Gaming and PB17 Professional Business

High-quality pro sound for discerning gamers and for the office
Vienna, Austria – Austrian Audio brings their acclaimed professional audio quality to the gaming market with the PG16 Pro Gaming Headset and meets the growing needs of business professionals with the PB17 Professional Business Headset. Gamers can now hear games as the designers intended with crystal clear, high-resolution professional sound and perfect spatiality to precisely locate even the quietest details. Business professionals will appreciate the sonic detail, exceptional speech intelligibility, and fatigue-free listening of the PB17 closed-back headphones.
Both the PB17 and the PG16 headsets share the same technology as the highly-regarded Hi-X65, Hi-X55 and Hi-X50 pro audio headphones for exceptional high-definition sound. Their 44mm Hi-X drivers accurately reproduce the full audible sonic frequency spectrum from 12 Hz to 24 kHz with zero-latency for the best gaming experience. 
The PG16 meets the highest gaming demands in terms of sound and foldable hardware design: the robust metal construction of the headband and hinges ensures maximum stability and extremely long durability. Soft ear pads made of special "slow retention" memory foam and the low weight of just 265g ensure optimal wearing comfort, even during long gaming sessions. The closed design with outstanding insulation effectively eliminates ambient noise, so you can concentrate fully on the game.

The PG16 and the PB17 are equipped with a pro-grade boom microphone, which transmits your voice to the team without cut-outs, choppiness, or muffling. If you don't want to be heard by your mates, you can mute the microphone using the ‘Lift to Mute’ mechanism.
The PB17 is a great all-rounder: a professional office and business tool equally-suited for general media, music and relaxation. The closed design of the PB17 prevents sounds from entering or escaping; you can make calls undisturbed by your surroundings and concentrate fully on your conversation. Additionally, the PB17 is equipped with a high-quality boom microphone so that your counterpart hears you just as clearly as you hear them. The mic can be muted by simply flipping it up. The PB17 can be folded up in just a few simple steps, safely stowed away in the supplied carrying case for easy transport. 
Optionally, you can use the included Spatial Sound Card software from New Audio Technology for a dynamic 7.1 surround sound for an enhanced gaming experience and competitive advantage.
Both headsets connect with the 1.4 m long connection cable with a 3.5 mm jack plug. If your device does not have a suitable socket, simply use the included USB adapter. The cable is removable and can be swapped quickly and easily in the event of a defect or if you need a longer cable for your devices.
