Func Announces HS 260 Gaming Headset with Removable Mic

By , photos by Marcus Yam - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 4 comments

Hot on the heels of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Func this week announced the arrival of a brand new headset dubbed the HS 260.

The HS 260 features integrated controls on each ear cup as well as a detachable 3 m braided cable, a removable microphone (handy if you're not the chatty type or if you just want to switch the mic to the other ear cup), changeable cushions in either velour or leather (both are included), a closed acoustic construction, and a recency response of 20-20,000 Hz. Impedance is listed as 32 Ohms.

We haven't had a chance to really test them yet (our German team has a full review up already), but we'll be reviewing these bad boys as soon as we get a chance. For now, pricing is set at $79.99 in the United States, and they're already available for purchase.

    I think it's about time makers too advantage and offered options and at that price I just hope they sound as good as I hope. These could be perfect.

    I really like what this company is doing - their products are actually useful, and you can tell they spend a lot of time focusing on function instead of gimmicks. I've been using their MS-3 for the past 8+ months, and after owning almost every Razer mouse the MS-3 was a breath of fresh air - so much so it ended up converting me to a palm grip. Even though I still have/use Razer (options are good!) Func is on a roll...

    Moving the volume control and mute function for mic (which are normally on the in-line remote on the cables of headsets) to the ear pieces is the best thing I have ever seen on a headset. It is a great innovation. This, combined with detachable cable (with no in-line remote), makes this the most durable headset ever on the market. One can easily replace the cable if it ever got damaged (which is a very common problem with headsets). I just hope there are manufacturers out there who make and sell these detachable cables on their own.
