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."
