Mad Catz announced a new headset for their Tritton line. The Tritton Swarm is a wireless Bluetooth headset designed for gamers on the go. The headset is the second Mad Catz product to feature the AM3D Surround sound technology that turns stereo signals into virtual surround sound. The same technology is found in F-16 Falcon fighter jets to alert pilots of incoming missiles.

Although primarily aimed at the mobile market, the headset is compatible with PC and consoles with a 3.5mm audio cable. Xbox One owners will need a special adapter to get their Swarm working with their console.

The Tritton Swarm is up for pre-order for $159.99 USD. The headset is expected to ship in March 2015.
