Headphones chafing you? HP’s got something they’d like to show you.

While racking up the hours on ears, headphones can become a bit heated and irritating for their users. HP recently announced some new additions to their gaming portfolio, which now includes a pair of gaming headphones that feature active and passive cooling.

These new Omen headphones really help those who are experiencing problems with heat buildup. The headphones include Frostcap technology that will help to cool them down. Thermoelectric coolers are placed inside of the earcups, which help to cool down the aluminum speaker grille. Heat in the acoustic chamber is moved out, allowing a comfortable temperature to remain.

A new graphite heat speaker is also found in the cushions that help to take the heat away from the skin while the user wears the headphones for an extended period of time. The addition of the heat and cooling features will certainly make all listeners feel a lot more comfortable while gaming, listening to music, or whatever else.

In addition to these features, the headphones include 7.1 surround sound and noise-cancellation that blocks background noise while allowing the wearer’s voice to be heard clearly through the included mic. The included Omen Command Center software provides a full suite of settings that allow a user to customize to their taste. Each earcup comes with a 40 mm driver with a frequency range of 15Hz to 20 kHz. A rotating boom includes a microphone with a frequency of 100 Hz to 10 kHz.

HP’s Omen Mindframe Prime headset is expected to hit stores in January 2020 for around $199.99.
