Feenix Claims Aria Headset Delivers "Audiophile Level" Audio to Gamers

A premium priced headset with 50mm drivers

Never heard of Feenix, you say? The company is a relative newcomer to the field of PC peripherals and appears to be trying to make a splash by combining elegant designs with premium crafted components. Fleshing out a limited (but growing) catalog of peripherals is the Aria, which Feenix claims is a "studio grade" headphone and microphone combination . Let's take a peek at the specs.

The Aria features 50mm full range neodymium magnet drivers for "studio monitor sound performance." Each driver is purportedly sound checked prior to assembly. They're then hand-installed into earcups made from Japanese Pine wood and covered with 100 percent memory foam and protein leather.

From a specification standpoint, the headset is rated as follows:

  • Impedance: 64 ohm
  • Sensitivity: 101db
  • Frequency Response: 10Hz-26KHz
  • Weight: 370g

"For years gamers have been mislead as to what they should be looking for in a gaming headset. Their choices have had nothing but poor sound quality, gimmicky features, and unnaturally over pronounced bass," said Feenix creative director, Ashkon Shayani. "The Aria focuses on providing high grade audio and reproducing sounds perfectly in studio monitor fashion. The result is the ability to hear sounds you never knew existed."

The Aria is currently available to pre-order for $349 .
