The headphones shut out external noise using special closed earcups that fully cover your ears, aided by plush cushions that form a perfect seal for greater sound isolation. A new breathable weave minimizes sweat and heat build-up generated by skin contact, while the ultra-soft foam’s improved density greatly reduces the headset’s clamping force for unparalleled comfort. The earcups have a built-in automatic breathing RGB LED light effect to complete one’s gaming setup.
