CES 2012: Mad Catz starting to ship the Primer Wireless Stereo Headset

Remember those wireless headsets from Mad Catz that were touted at E3? Well, they're starting to be released and the first one is The Primer Wireless Stereo Headset for the Xbox 360.

The headset was made in conjunction with Microsoft so you know they're being made to work well with the Xbox 360. They run on a 5.7GHz wireless spectrum and feature 40mm neodynium drivers. Separate controls allow you to adjust the volume and chat levels as needed.

This isn't the first co-branded headset from Mad Catz, TRITTON, and Microsoft, but it is the first wireless one in their line. I'm awaiting for their surround sound one though, which should be a killer headset for Xbox 360 games.
