It would be difficult to find a less physically strenuous activity than gaming. In theory, you shouldn’t break sweat from moving joysticks and pressing buttons. But as the clock ticks down on your team deathmatch, it’s easy for a little moisture to form on your brow.

Wearing a headset for hours does not help with the build-up of perspiration. That’s why HP has added special cooling features to the OMEN Mindframe gaming headset. This device syphons heat away from your ears, while caressing them with detailed 7.1 surround sound.

What is FrostCap cooling technology?

It should be obvious that surrounding your head in soft materials will cause some stuffiness. Yet most headset makers have never quite caught on.

In contrast, HP is attempting to provide some much needed ventilation. FrostCap technology places a thermoelectric device inside each earcup, which works to transfer heat away from your head.

OMEN Mindframe features special cooling technology

OMEN Mindframe utilizes FrostCap technology to good effect. The headset syphons away heat through small grilles, helping you to stay cool under pressure. In addition, the increased ventilation ensures you stay comfortable through long gaming sessions.

The OMEN Mindframe headset is solid and very comfortable

Elsewhere, HP has stuck to tried and tested design. The OMEN Mindframe offers sturdy build quality, with soft cushions in all the right places. At 1.05 pounds, it’s not the heaviest headset, either.

The full works

Aside from comfort, the OMEN Mindframe headset delivers a great list of features. For starters, HP has gone all out with 7.1 surround sound. This 3D audio brings gameplay to life, adding realism to the battlefield. The sound quality is also impressive — you can quite clearly hear enemy footsteps approaching from any angle.

This headset also looks the part, thanks to customizable RGB lighting. Through the OMEN Command Center app, you can put on a show with various colors and lighting effects. You can control all your other OMEN gear from the same app, with loads of settings to play with.

“The OMEN Mindframe features FrostCap, the world’s first active ear cup cooling technology. Using a thermoelectric device inside each ear cup, FrostCap cools the speaker grille plates and transfers heat away from the ears—allowing you to stay comfortable during long gaming sessions and concentrate on the win.” — HP

Sounding good

We love the lighting

With the OMEN Mindframe, HP has tackled a long-standing issue with gaming headsets. Being able to play — even in the middle of summer — without bathing in your own sweat is worth the price of admission alone.

Minimum specs

The OMEN Mindframe headset works with any Windows 10 64-bit PC, connecting via USB type-A. You will also need to download the OMEN Command Center app from the Windows Store to control the lights and change the audio settings.
