Gaming on your PC in the summer can be quite a challenge. HP is out to make things cooler for you with their latest pair of headphones.
HP has introduced thermoelectric magnets for active earcup cooling in its latest Omen Mineframe Headset. These are the first ever gaming headphones to feature a cooling mechanism for your ears. The best thing is … these are coming to you in October this year for $199.
You can now play for as long as you want without worrying about the breathing space for your ears.
While the inside of the headset feels slightly cooler, offering a tingling cold feeling, the outer side still gets warmed up as the inside gets cooler.
HP owns the patent for the headphone cooling technology and the earcups are powered over USB instead of battery. There are no indications of battery-powered cooling headphones coming from HP in the future, so this is the best we get. The earcups light up as well, just like other gaming headphones.
The headset also boasts noise cancellation technology and real-time audible feedback with fabric cups so they won’t roughen up your ears with constant use.
First-hand users have endorsed the technology and are all for it as it can bring quite a relief for the diehard gamers who have to take their headphones off every now and then for cooling off.
Once in the market, it remains to be seen how the headphones fare and whether the claims of long, uninterrupted gaming experience especially in the summers are true or not.
