  HOT NEWS        Genius Announces Lychas HS-G550 Foldable Gaming Headset for the GX Gaming Series

Individually Adjust the Volume in Each Ear Cup

July 12, 2012, Chino, California – Genius announces their newest addition to their GX Gaming Series today - Lychas HS-G550 Foldable Gaming Headset. This GX Gaming Series headset allows gamers to listen to the sounds of the battlefield in one ear while still being able to hear their teammates sitting next to them thanks to the individual volume controls on each ear cup.

Ideal for LAN parties and competitions because of its individual volume control, the Lychas is easy to carry around with its swivel ear cups and foldable design. When both of the ear cups' volume is turned up, the GX Series' Lychas not only provides clear and accurate audio for a tactical advantage in any combat situation, but the large 50mm drivers also prevent distraction from background noises.

The in-line control box lets gamers easily tweak the master volume and mute the microphone in-game. Mounted on the left ear piece, the omni-directional microphone can be simply rotated out of view when not in use. The adjustable headband fits comfortably on any gamer.

Smooth, stable connections are guaranteed with the GX Gaming Series' headsets. The Lychas gaming headset does not take up valuable USB port space. Instead, the Lychas has an anti-corrosive gold-plated 3.5mm jack ensuring longer-lasting, high quality connections.
