Bionik Announces the Mantis PSVR Headphones
The PlayStation VR has proven to be one of Sony’s most successful accessories for its PlayStation 4, with sales already breaking the 900,000 mark. And it looks like companies have started to acknowledge that success with many announcing accessories for Sony’s VR headset. One such company is Bionik, a new gaming accessory company that has just announced a new headphone set designed for the PSVR.
Called the Mantis, the two-piece headphone set clips onto the PSVR using spring loaded clips, making attaching and detaching quick and easy. According to the company, the Mantis uses lightweight materials and is easily adjustable. It also comes in the same white and black color scheme as the PSVR. Bionik’s senior vice president of Product Development Amir Navid had this to say about their new product:
Based on the incredible growth and upside of the virtual reality industry, including positive momentum recently reported on sales of PlayStation VR, the Mantis VR headphones are appearing at the perfect time. The Mantis VR was designed for the PlayStation Virtual Reality headset with the core purpose of delivering great sound and performance while reducing the clutter and inconvenience of using traditional gaming headphones. Great care was taken to make sure that the product enhances the gamer’s experience, by consolidating key accessories into one apparatus. This integrated solution perfectly complements the existing PSVR headset. We’re excited for fans and gamers to experience audio that matches the quality of PSVR’s visuals inside and out.
The Bionik Mantis will be priced at $49.99 and is set to come out sometime in Spring 2017.
