    Powerful Audio Immersion

    Unlike traditional speakers, Project Carol is calibrated for near-field surround sound, delivering closer, more direct rear audio that focuses on the listener’s ears for ultimate immersion.


    Realistic, High-fidelity Tactile Feedback

    Programmed by leading haptics specialist, Interhaptics, the cushion converts sound signals into lifelike vibrations in real-time, allowing you to physically feel rear surround effects as if you were in the world itself.


    Compatible With a Wide Range of Media

    Project Carol works perfectly with any PC capable of 7.1 surround sound output and supports any media with up to 7.1 encoding. Just load up your favorite entertainment to begin enjoying a fuss-free listening experience.


    Up to 8 Hours of Battery Life

    Powered by proprietary wireless technology, plug in the cushion’s dongle to your PC and experience uninterrupted immersion for up to 8 hours, or have it ready for your next session with convenient USB Type C charging.


    Stretchy Adjustable Straps

    Designed to fit with all major brands of gaming chairs, Project Carol features a pair of top and bottom straps that can be fully extended (un-stretched) to 350 and 310 mm respectively.

    That would be a good use,as it's mostly noise and there's no need for high quality audio equipment for such games
