Etymotic Research announced today that it would be launching a new division called E.D.G.E. Acoustics. The goal of the new division is to produce enhanced definition gaming earphones.
The E.D.G.E. line is said to represent the pinnacle in gaming earphones by applying sound isolation and audio accuracy to harness various audio components heard in games. The product line will be launched at the Game Developers’ Conference next week. I’ll be there and will be sure to check these out.
In my experience though, open-air earphones are the best for gaming. The vast majority of pro gamers use open Sennheisers. Oh well, I’m intrigued nonetheless.
