The sound of the Phontum Cougar

Cougar have come up with a brand new word to go with their new headset, unless they are referring to a certain old geographical location in Thailand.  At ~$50 it does not represent a major investment even with its 53mm drivers and the two pairs of earcups included in the box.  Neoseeker found the microphone to be decent enough for conversational usage and were thoroughly happy with sound reproduction when listening to music or gaming.  If you are in the market for a headset but can't justify spending $100 or more, this is worth a look.

"The Cougar Phontum gaming headset incorporates a 53mm driver to provide more audio output across multiple situations than the standard 50mm driver. Next, Cougar utilizes a dual-chamber design to achieve a profound distinction between bass, midrange and treble frequencies. Finally we have a graphene diaphragm to reduce distortion due with their lighter and stiffer construction – making for faster response with less unwanted flex of the cone."

Since 'conflict of interest' appears to be the buzzword around PCPer today...

This is such a blatant example of conflict of interest it's embarrassing. I demand you respond to the rantings of attention whore troll losers by releasing exactly how much you were paid by Cougar to shill this product for them.

I will be unsubscribing from everywhere I can possibly unsubscribe from you from and then I'm done with this unethical paid-by-intel/amd/nvidia/cyrix/matrox site forever...I mean...except for reading/watching and responding to everything you post from now until ever...but other than that I'm like totally done.

You could call it YouTube drama, or you could call it pcper being caught out for unethical journalism.
Jim tried to explain that journalists have certain responsibilies, but if that's not important to you then by all means keep tuning into pcper for your latest biased content. The rest of us have a right to know what pcper are up to whilst keeping that in mind if we choose to consume their content.
