Philips has announced the launch of its first gaming-oriented headphones under the name TAGH401BL, a somewhat “robotic” looking model that emphasizes sound processing to enhance immersion while we play.

It is a device with a supraural design of a closed speaker that opts for an ultralight design of 250 grams and an adjustable headband that accompanies the polyurethane foam pads with “feeling of freshness” and memory.

The core of the headset is made up of 40mm diameter neodymium speakers that provide a frequency response between 20 Hz and 20 KHz with a sensitivity of 102 dB and an impedance of 32 ohm that can be connected to any compatible equipment (PC and consoles) via a 2.5 meter USB cable with integrated control button.

This control, in addition to raising and lowering the volume, allows us to activate the Dirac Spatial Audio sound processing system, a technology that we have already discussed on other occasions and which generates a surround field emulating sound systems. 7.1 speakers from conventional stereo signals. According to the manufacturer, the intention of this system is to emphasize the small effects and to immerse the user in a soundstage more convincing and “similar to the real world”.

Dirac also offers digital sound processing to display clearer sound with theoretically clearer dialogues and as they comment without losing low frequency response.

Pricing and availability

The new Philips TAGH401BL headphones will go on sale this month for a maximum recommended price of 59.90 euros.
