  1. fitted and worked perfectly. I had not realised where is was being posted from so it took a long time to arrive, lucky not urgent. ESS software needed (not included) no instructions.

  2. ProsKEY POINT: The sound in my opinion is the best, most balanced, most natural sound you can get for this £20 to £30 price range.It’s coming closer to a year of owning these headphones with long, daily use and the sound is just as good as original purchase.The cables are still strong as ever and the 3.5mm connector is still working well.All of the padding on the top part of the headphone (to cushion your head) is still there and feels very comfortable.Though the covering material on the ear pads has peeled away, the soft fabric underneath is still nice and does not flake.ConsThe Bass is a little weak and it misses some of the very low tones.I had to use my USB Mixer to get more volume from my Windows 10 PC, as they were too quiet raw.The headphones loosen up a lot after a few months, so now they don’t have that factory fresh, tight fit I liked over my ears.The thin material covering the ear pads peeled away after constant use.Wouldn’t mind if the volume could go higher before any distortion is heard, but I like to listen to music really loud sometimes to chill out.ConclusionOverall I would say MUST BUY if you want something around £30 for home or office use. Don’t settle with anything cheaper.Pay a little extra for Great Quality. When it starts to get shabby, just buy a new one. It’ll probably be cheaper by then.

  3. These were my first (and so far only) Sennheiser headphones and given the brand’s reputation, I was expecting to be blown away. They are by no means bad – the sound is very clear and well differentiated, something that swayed me into buying them. After more than half a year of using them, though, I’ve often caught myself turning the volume up more than I’ve ever done with headphones (and that’s considering these started out pretty quiet by default, always needing the volume up more than my laptop or phone speakers). There is a slightly veiled quality to the sound that’s become more apparent as time went on – it’s almost as if, rather than the supposed “burn in” period, these headphones are having a burn-out! It feels as if they’re getting flatter, quieter, and less dynamic over time.Another contributing factor might be that the bass isn’t particularly pronounced. Personally I don’t need bass to be so loud as to override all the rest of the music, so I thought initially this wouldn’t be a problem. After a while it may just be one of the reasons I keep turning the volume up as if there’s something missing – the bass, that’s what!I’m still giving these 4 stars because the sound quality is good – none of the above disadvantages were apparent to me at first, except maybe that these headphones were a bit quiet. After plugging in my old beaten-up Philips set while on holiday, though, the difference became audible all of a sudden. Particularly on a gaming laptop with a better than average sound card, the Sennheisers SHOULD be blowing me away. I’m not sure whether the performance has started degrading bit by tiny bit over time or if it just took me a while to notice how subdued the sound was, but either way that’s the reason why I’m only rating these as good, not great.Overall still a good, comfortable-to-wear product with nicely accurate sound quality. Preferences are subjective and someone else might well find this the perfect sound for them – but if you’re into dynamism and like a certain “punch” to your music and media, these aren’t the best choice. It’s back to the headphone hunt for me!

  4. This headset is light weight and has very good quality sound for the price and is very comfortable. Microphone works good as well. Lights on the sides of the headset make it look nice.Only complaint is that this headset is meant for PC users given the fact that both the USB cable and microphone plug in are connected very close together to the cable. Meaning, that if you are playing on PS4 you plug the microphone cable into the controller but can’t plug the USB cable into the system for the lights. I ended up buying a 3 foot USB extension cable in order to be able to use the lights. So if you are using anything other than a PC and want the lights on the headset while you play, then you’ll need an USB extension cable.This product is very good though. Very happy with the purchase

  6. I’ll start off by saying I’m a middle aged dad who purchased this for my teenage son so that he would stop borrowing his sister’s Beats for gaming. I was first expecting to pay $100, but was pleasantly surprised by the pricing and reviews for these.I just now tested these, and to me, they don’t seem too bad. The audio quality is lesser than the Beats he was using, but to me, that’s OK. They are not as comfortable as the Beats either, but they’re still fine for wearing for hours on end.Unfortunately, they were not acceptable for my teenage son. This was just one gift of the many for his birthday. We tend to go overboard, even before Christmas. He wasn’t overly thrilled, but used them immediately. Later, in a fit of rage over his other gifts, he shouts “Thanks for the $10 scratchy headset Dad!”.So, if you’re a middle age person looking for good value, I think these are a good fit. Though, if you’re a spoiled brat teenage boy who wants to hear what others will do to his mom in the best sound quality and comfortability, these may not be the best purchase.

  7. These are my absolute faves- onto second pair now.The bad points are that they’re not great for noise cancelling, they’re not ‘great’ for big bass sounds and they don’t fold.HOWEVER, I use them for travelling with work and they’re used pretty much daily and I love them. I use them for watching films and music videos as well as playing music. They’re perfectly clear and loud enough and I can still hear well on planes and trains. They’re very comfortable, my ears fit completely inside them so no pressure aches even when they’re on my head for 6/7 hours.My previous pair broke which I put down to them not being foldable but I didn’t hesitate to replace with the exact same.

  8. Great quality headset and sound. Lights are not too bright whatsoever.Pros:Great SoundDim LightsDecent MicrophoneHeavy, High Quality Volume Adjust/Mic MuteComfortable for Most PeopleCons:USB Plug for lights that just dangles next to main plug when using, for example, Xbox Controller or Mobile Device. Works fine for PC, however.Can get uncomfortable after many hours.Other Notes:These cheap and reliable headphones compare wonderfully to more expensive headsets like ASUS.Great Headset!

  9. I got this in a rush when I needed a new headset. In hindsight a bit more research would have had me getting something else. As a precursor to the review I feel that it is worth noting that I am very rough on audio peripherals. I don’t know why, but they usually last me about 6 months regardless of the quality and price. This is why I choose to buy at a cheaper price point more frequently rather than high-end less frequently.Pros:Price for the quality is greatDecent speaker/mic soundGood quality cable that is at least 6′ longSits comfortably on the headStereo/mic to separate stereo and mic connector includedIn-line mic mute switch and audio volume adjustmentCons:The USB is only a power source for the blue lights on the headset (it is a bit misleading in its uses, but if I had researched it a bit more I would have found this out before purchase)The in-line mute and volume knob would be better with a mic gain knob as wellIt tends to make my head a bit sweaty (I have long hair and live in South Texas, US. So it is hard to find headsets that don’t do that, but still something to keep in mind)The headset only goes on one way (The traditional right and left side is enforced by the mic only being usable one way. I know I am in the minority, but I like the mic being on the right side of my head)So this is absolutely worth the money, but if you are looking for a high-end headset this is not it. I know my cons were a bit nit picky, and I don’t want anyone to think that I regret this purchase. I knew I was getting a quick solution to needing a headset, and I honestly got more than I was looking for. The USB lighting, while completely useless, is a cool addition. The only reason it didn’t make it into the pros section is because unless you want to look cool on stream it is wasted resources.So, yea. If you want a good quality headset for a good price this is great for you.

  11. I love the product. It works very well on my Xbox, however the headline for product is misleading. The USB audio box(THX) will not work on Xbox. You will need a separate adapter that plugs directly into your controller for the 3.5mm connection. I was under the impression that this headset operated like the Astro Mixamp does where its a USB to mixamp, then mixamp to headset, giving you voice and game audio control. The headset feels great and works very well. I just write this so no one else will feel mislead.

  12. I’m enjoying the hell out of it!! Great sound, great mic response time, just all over a great product!

  14. I bought these for my boyfriend and I so we could play xbox together, I was skeptical about buying 10 dollar headset but it is awesome he comes in so clear i can actually hear him unlike some other headsets i have used in the past. i would most definitely recommend this product. the only compliant that my boyfriend had that the the mic doesn’t turn 360 so he can have the mic on the right side instead of the left. other than that he loves it.

  16. This is the first good gaming headset ive bought, the first were sum cheap $25 turtle beach headsets from gamestop, returned those the next day. Then i used my apple earphones until i did enough research and found these. I play call of duty black ops4 and other C.O.D games and its vital to have a good headset, you can hear foot steps directionally from where theyre coming from. Its really a must have for playing the game to your best potential. My K/D went up and overall all experience of the game feels brand new, i had the game 3 months before buying my headset and its a new experience. I recommend spending atleast $100 bux on a good headset and this is the one to get. It has a retractable mic and very good quality, i bought 2 and gave my homie one for christmas and his voice sounds the same in person as it does on the mic, its not high pitched or dry nasal sounding. I get startled everytime i get shot unexpectedly because the quality of sound depth is so good. If your shooting close quarters itll sound loud and if theres shooting in the distance youll be able to hear it just enough and locate it directionally. Also the headset looks pretty hard its all black, and they have cooling gel ear cup cushions that actually feel cool to the touch and very comfortable. The headset is overall very comfortable and has a volume and mute on the headset cord, havent used the THX spatial sound mode but i cant imagine the sound quality getting better honestly. You wont regret getting this headset guarenteed

  17. I was like the other skeptics here, doubting this headset could deliver my needs. I bought this headset for my daughter so we can play online together. I really didn’t want to spend to much but I new buying a headset at Walmart was really gonna screw me over.I just plugged these baby’s into my Gigabyte board and it took me less than 5 minutes to shape the sound like I wanted with the Realtek audio manager and let me tell you these things sound super good. Audio is part of my every day job and I’ve been doing it for many years. If these sounded like crap I would tell you.I personally own the SteelSeries Siberia 840 and I would say that sound quality is hanging right in there with the 840. Of course I didn’t really buy the Siberia’s for concert quality drivers. It was more about the wireless and Bluetooth capabilities. Don’t get me wrong I love my wireless 840 but if I needed to travel I would have no problem carrying the U3 with me.Bass response is very good. You can feel the slight thumps on low end sounds. But it also sounds really tight. Not sloppy bass. Mids and highs come in nice and clear. Like I said before, tune your sound up with your EQ and you will be amazed.The mic is also extremely clear. I get great levels in discord with just the regular mic gain at 100% in windows. Even with a +10db boost it still has very little hiss. Anything higher than that and you will start to get a hiss if you are in a moderately noisy room.The only issue I have with these is that the cup size for my ears is just a hair smaller than I like, though the cup has generous room. I’m so used to my 840’s and their big and deep cushions. Spoiled I know 🙂 Also the cups don’t swivel so if you plan on leaving a cup off your head for an extended period of time it’s probably going to start to get uncomfortable after a while.So overall, get them. If you just don’t trust anyone the best part is your only out $16 😀

  19. So my logitech headset died 🙁 not the first time, so I wasn’t going to spend another £50 on something like that. Thought I’d try something different. I really liked the RGB on this headset, which is a primary ready I bought it.I didnt have the highest expectations, it’s a £30 headset from an unknown brand. But I wasn’t disappointed at all. They are well built and are big enough to fit on my big head, so that’s a bonus. The mic boom could have been a little longer, but I guess they were going for the unobtrusive approach with this product. Sound wise they’re pretty good, sensitive to footsteps and weather effects and the like. I had no problem locating enemies on pubg, a massive advantage. And it’s good to have an inline volume and mic mute switch. There’s a reasonable amount of bass too, the drivers are apparently 50mm which is large, so there’s a lot of spacial awareness with this headset.Overall I’m happy with this headset so I’ll be using it as my daily driver for games etc.

  20. Because I’m usually listening to music on my phone when I’m out-and-about, I have a ton of earbuds, so this is the first set of headphones I’ve ever owned, and I can’t compare against other headphones, but I love these. I wanted to get one for my computer because I stay up late to work and need my music or movies and don’t want to wake my family.You do have to use the USB audio controller to get spatial audio by THX (where available). Otherwise , the 3.5mm jack directly inline is only going to give you stereo, so you wouldn’t get 360 audio plugging this into your phone, for example. I don’t think the spatial audio works on gaming consoles, just on your PC.Again, as I haven’t owned any other headsets, I don’t know how standard the comfort might be, but these are super comfortable. The ear cushions I’ve tried out a bunch in stores don’t fit my ears, and I don’t think I have large ears. I wasn’t sure about these since they’re round (usually oval ear cushions fit better), but they completely cover my ears. I’ve tried previous Krakens in store that didn’t fit me for some reason, so perhaps they changed something with the size of the cups here, not sure. I wear glasses, and the “clamp” of the headphone aren’t too tight, so I don’t feel the arms of my glasses pinching me. They are snug enough for desktop use, not enough for street use if you’re gonna be dancing wearing these or headbanging as they will slide forward or backward with moderate head tilt.The ear cushions do feel cool over extended use. I usually wear these for about 3-4 hours at night, and I don’t collect any sweat on them. The leatherette is super smooth and feels luxurious.They are not noise canceling or noise blocking. As stated above, they don’t fit so tightly that you can’t hear your environment when there’s no audio, but with a little bit of audio, any noise in your environment is easily drowned out.I like the convenient manual volume control on the cord so that I don’t have to keep adjusting volume on my computer for different applications or different media. I’m not a gamer, so I usually leave my mic off (again, convenient integrated off switch), but it’s nice for teleconferencing with work.Nope, these don’t light up like other Razer products.You can adjust the sensitivity of noise from the mic in the Razer Synapse 3 Configuration Tool, so you can tune out the keyboard clicking if desired. You can set audio equalizer, adjust mic volume, sensitivity, normalize volume, reduce ambient noise, clarify voice, etc.

  21. EDITED & UPDATED: 5/18/20 after 13mo of useOriginally, I spent about a week browsing different headsets for gaming. I about ordered a $120 set, until I seen this suggestion.What’s great…-Pricing-Noise cancellation (no not active), I can’t hear a word from my wife & kids when I have these on.-Comfort, it’s amazing how comfortable they are, especially if you wear glasses!-This headset, Looks sharp & performs excellent! With the 7.1 Surround Sound Drivers Installed you can tell exactly where sounds come from… especially helpful in games like COD Warzone…. Where precision audio gives you an upper hand.-the option to choose what kind of cord you need… and leave aside the one you don’t = nothing unused dangles. Can use with phones, tablets, any 3.5mm audio input really…-slim detachable mic-Lightweight & Flexible-Customer Service is on it, R&D listens to feedback, so if there’s anything you can think of that could improve their products… Mention it, I guarantee they’re listening.-Custom Control software w/ 5 band EQWhat’s mehhh…-doesn’t collapse for traveling-cords from each muff are exposed, which could catch on to something and possibly damage them.5 stars- value, comfort, sleekness, & performance5 stars- Customer Service/Support4.5 stars- peripherals4.5 stars- materials/durability3 stars- portabilityOverall- 5 stars!!!Would 100% recommend, based on value alone and am more than satisfied! I really wish they would expand upon their products.

  22. Was looking for a gaming headset for my brother as he is a gaming freak. Did not want to invest in big branded ones as my brother never keeps any headset for longer. Came across this head set which suited my budget and the parcel arrived very next day. Gifted to my brother and he was so pleased with my gift. Gave call this morning and said that the sound quality of this headset is outstanding! He said that the Dolby effect is more effective than the high street ones. He is a gamer and if I could get such compliments from him, then I think that this is the best one for gaming! He also said that he has this in his bag to his commute his uni as this gives complete music set up for him on the go. Proud of choosing this product and a satisfied purchase!

  23. I have noticed that most of the 1 star reviews are from kids trying to use the wireless on xbox, which a little bit of reading would have told them from the start that it wouldn’t work. That aside, This is a solid headset for the price. It is very comfortable, even while wearing glasses. It can be a bit heavy after a couple hours, but really we shouldn’t be sitting at the PC gaming for 4 hours straight anyway, so I can’t really gripe there. The battery is good, I literally can’t imagine playing for so long in one sitting that the battery dies, and if it does, either YOU forgot to charge it over night, or YOU have some serious life problems and time management skills to work out. Sound quality is standard, nothing amazing but works well, and the virtual 8-speaker THX works exactly as intended from all the games I have tried so far. The ear cups cancel sound well enough, but they aren’t true “noise cancelling” as far as I am concerned. Probably not a bad thing if you don’t still live with Mommy. Gotta answer the doors and pretend to be an adult.Overall, its a great headset and the price is right, on par with Corsair Void or Logitech G-series. It really is a shame that kids who don’t do their research first are allowed to make bad reviews to mask their own negligence to market research.ADVICE: if you plug in the wireless adapter and get very little sound, poor mic quality, or faint recording, PLEASE try a different USB port. There is a difference between USB 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 and you want to be certain you are at least using 2.0. DO NOT USE the USB ports on the front of your PC, They are not shielded like the rear I/O and they are much more common to give issues with sound from these kind of devices due to interference.

  24. This is an amazing headset for the price. Very comfortable, easy to access controls. Thick padding isolates outside noise and has a nice tight grip, I have a rather “thin” head, so headphones are typically too large, but these fit nice and snug. The audio was through the mic was clear and everyone in my party had 0 complaints. The remote clip is a great touch and allows users to position it and reduce the weight when moving your head around, though the remote is very light. The RGB Lights are a cool effect, but not necessary IMO.I would recommend this headset to everyone looking for a USB headset!

  25. After looking for a cheap headset after my old one was on it’s last legs I bought at least 3 £20 cheap alternatives before getting savagely roasted by other pc gamers over how crap the microphone quality was, after that I decided to go for this one while praying to whatever deity exists that this one isn’t a piece of crap and hoo boyThe sound quality is amazing, like too good, I have to turn my pc down to 20 so I don’t deafen myself, the 7.1 surround with 3d audio is great for games that require hearing more than anything (Biggest example being battle royale games) and the microphone is so crystal clear it’s given me the pass to s**t on others with bad micsthank you for ascending me to godhood Tronsmart and Yuefa

  26. I have tried cheaper wireless, too scared to spend for the better ones and hated them all.The price was decent for a wireless headset and it’s Razerr so I went for it.Comes with dongle and once plugged in it started set up, super easy!Sound is superb for a gaming headset of similar price and cushiony so your ears won’t hurt (especially if you wear glasses)However, I purchase insurance to go with it. I had trouble with a Razer mouse clearly within Razer warranty but I must have emailed these guys 10 plus times in response to the usual “Did you plug it in” but it went further as long to update, reinstall and do a little dance for which they expect a response within a day (Reinstall windows, really?) They wanted a video of the problem but the issue is Synapse stop seeing after months of mystery dumps (In mid game usually).I am still waiting on response, I did 90% of requested hoop jumping EVEN tho problems with synapse are well known.It is clear to me they try to discourage people from getting their warranty. I even updated as lot of my hardware, updated everything, troubleshoot but no go.UPDATE: Razer came through and replace my mouse with a new model since they no longer have my mouse but I am super happy!UPDATe: holding strong almost a year later.

  27. Overall not a bad set of USB headphones – everything works fine from first attempt, however here are couple of issues:1) AUX Cable – if you use that one, MIC is not working properly, and you do hear those cracking sounds (tested on multiple different computers). No problem whatsoever when using USB for same purpose – crystal clear sound and mic works fine.2) Advertised “7.1 Surround Sound” requires you to download something from China (?!?) – Microsoft Windows Security Adviser is NOT recommending that specific download (The vendor is NOT trusted) – so, I have to pass on that… Why advertise something that many Windows users will hesitate to use/test? Make it as part of “Certified Drivers” – available on “Windows Update” – like many other, reliable hardware vendors do (I can download drivers for almost all of my devices from here – why not for this headset?)

  28. The media could not be loaded.  This headphone set is amazing! My kid loved it as soon as he took it out of the box and connected it to his PlayStation to talk and play with his gamer friends. The sound is great and it is such a good deal. He also loved those led lights that give it an extra plus for a good look. They are light and comfortable and they cancel out the noise as well. Now my kid doesn’t want to take them off even to sleep! I was excited he liked them so much and they are well deserved after all his hard work. The microphone is not to close to the mouth and makes it easier to talk to his friends without getting in the way and the sound is great for the value! I would definitely recommend these E1000 headphones!

  30. I got these for comfort to use at work: straight USB with a mic and over the ear speakers for comfort. I have tried others and been disappointed in the fragility – most lasted only 3 months or so, but it gave me the experience to say that these are very comfortable. The padding is good, the weight distributed evenly, the microphone clicks when you change the position – all good. I was going to wait to see if it lasts before reviewing, but today when I ask a co-worker for a mic check I was told they were amazed at the clarity of the sound – they even asked for the brand name. I work with people who take calls all day – they know sound. I did not load the drivers ’cause they usually do not work with VM desktops, so this was all the mic mechanics. Nice job!Update: Just to let you know it has been a couple of months now and this headset continues to preform. The construction has shown no flaws to date.2nd Update: Still good, still no construction problems. I love these headphones.3rd update: just bought another set as a gift – VERY well received4th update: I bought these headphones early 2019, and only now did I start thinking I need to get another set to keep on hand “just in case.” The reason? One of the adjustment slides stopped ‘clicking.’Over all this is the most durable headset I have ever had. Yes, I use a stand (like a pro) but the only wear otherwise is some peeling on the padding, and I blame the glasses I wear for that.

  31. I have always thought of Razer as a reputable company. I spent around $130 on a headset that completely fell apart after a little over a year. This headset was worn by an adult who still has items from his childhood, he takes good care of his things. But these headphones are the worst yet. I have headphones from Walmart that I’ve had for 5 years and they didn’t fall apart like these. When I contacted Razer they said it was customer induced damage. Really….really. Never ever again will I purchase any item associated with the company Razer. And after reading other reviews on Amazon I see it is a common problem work their headsets falling apart and Amazon should really look into this matter since they are the ones selling the product.

  32. The set’s mic died in about a month, two days after Amazon return window closed. I spent 25 min with useless Amazon tech support, that took all that time to redirect me to Razer, told me they would call in an hour to see if the issue was resolved. Never did – Erth’s most customer centric company???. Then I had to answer dumb questions from Razer rep (are you sure you did not mute the mic? did you download software? ) to be told in the end that I already knew – the set falls under warranty. But now I need to wait for another 72 hours from Razer to tell me the next step… wt…And the update from August: after we replaced the first set in March, the second ser’s mic dies again in July. Same horror story customer service from Razer multiplied by all covid complications- customer service unaavailable, send us email – nobody replies, call again- connected to some Razer rep working from him with bad connection… Never ending…Replaced the second faulty set under the Amazon umbrella warranty, sold it and bought a different brand. Bottom line:Sound, look, design is nice, but make is poor. The Razer headsets just won’t last. Then, the Razer customer service is an insult to the service itself. Not worth spending your money and time.

    I’ve been using a Kraken headset I got in a holiday Cynosa bundle. It’s a good headset, but nothing like the Kraken Ultimate.Sound is so much better, much “fuller” sound. These also feel higher quality construction, but much more comfortable to wear. Being USB, I was worried about sound volume…there is no need, these get louder than you need. I have other Razer Chroma devices, so this just adds to the Chroma LED effects, and integrates well with the Synapse 3 software.So far, my only negative would be the mic mute switch doesn’t work with different apps, like Discord. It’s a mute switch for the mic, so if you have it on, the system doesn’t see a microphone.Other than that one negative, these headphones are awesome! Are they worth the $130 asking price? Probably not, but with inflation and other headphones of this level…maybe price point is spot on.This doesn’t work with XBox or PS4, Razer has special headphones for consoles, search for those.

  34. Ok.. so they list these headphones at 48 dollars but I got them for 22 dollars without shipping… (which was 8 bucks with a xbox 1 controller I also got..) so at that price… they just have to last a few months and not be total crap to be worth 5 stars to me… I would be nitpicking alot harder if I payed more for this.. and probably just outright returned them. but at 22 bucksOver all they are ok and have good sound.. I’m not noticing anything that sounds crackling… or the sound cutting out as some uses have complained about.. I have owned these now about a week now.. and I would say, It’s consistent and sounds good, and for someone with really good hearing like me, that in itself really says alot about the ear phones… I can clearly hear most things played though them.. and people I talked to have no complaint about how I sound… the only thing I have not tested is how good are they for survival games, but with the sound I heard so far.. it could be good… So if that is a thing for you I cannot help you out with that…I suspect all the reason I have for this is the USB cable means the sound never has to deal with the computer case like a 3.5 jack does.. for whatever reason the 3.5 inch jack to my computer has issues with the case resonating sound from the fans though the audio… So its just a better option in my case to use a USB headphone instead of a 3.5 set.One thing I noticed they no sound insulation in these head phones. I can still hear the cat sleeping in the box next to my desk… People walking around the house are vary easy to hear. And boy can I still vary clearly hear my computer humming when the sound is off. The sound from the space heater… Nothing is stopped just because you put these ear muffs on.. there is no sound insulation in these things at all… So they are not vary well sound proofed.. suspect this is why the sound is not amazing… But I personally like how that means I don’t have to yank these off to let someone talk to me. I just need to stop the sound… but If you just want to cancel out noises around you while you work… your going to need to resort to actually playing music with them..The build quality over all looks good. I suspect I will get a year of use out of these easily provided I don’t do something stupid like walk away from the computer wearing them. I really like how the cord has braiding over it and it comes with a velcro cable tie. The cushioning is nice and thick with some fairly soft vinyl fabric that might be unpleasant in summer to have pressed to my head. It’s cool enough right now where I don’t see it as a issue but I have found this plastic to become annoying to use in summer time when it gets hot out. The only other issue with the Cushioning is if comes loose, I probably will have to throw out the headphones then… but to the credit of the makers… it looks like they are well enough made that I won’t have to worry about that..That is some nice details I love about these things. Since its just me using these things and maybe the cat to mess with them.. (and No, she does not eat cables..) I don’t see these ever being damaged outside of me brain farting or dropping them. The thing I would worry most about is the thin metal band with plastic around it method of construction is far from perfect, and there is a reason why you seen these only on Under 50 dollar headphones. So try to be careful with these if you get them…Next these things… are comfortable… enough… I personally find them a little heavy.. which is a surprise considering how easily you can hear other sounds that exist from outside of them.. The cushion on them is really good but they still clamp onto my head crushing my glasses into the side of my head making them kinda uncomfortable to use for over a 2 hours if I’m not fully into my gaming experience.(If you wear glasses you will probably not like these.. but then again you will hate just about every headphone like this on the market then. they all crush glasses arms into the side of your head. That’s just a given with headphones. I suspect if I did not wear glasses I would find them alot more comfortable otherwise.. )I tried to combat this some by make the loop for them bigger and then wearing them at a angle.. so the band is pointed forward and resting on the front top of my head while the rest is on my ears… this helps some since the band is not exerting as much pressure on my glasses arms… but its not perfectly comfortable either… your tolerance for discomfort will vary… and this is part of the reason why I think its a 3 star product..Aside from being poor comfort for me, (someone that has to deal with this on all headphones because of glasses… I hate is the stupid control box on the cord. Everything else at this price was surprisingly good, or tolerable… but This stupid oversize box is why I’m reviewing these headphones.. Why is this thing so big and so annoying to have on the cord!? Its like having a battery box that rubs on your arm, and snuggle its jacked shape into your armpit when your trying to play game.. I really don’t see why this thing could not be integrated into the actual headphone part, or just come with a control box that not the size of a small animal. I ended up putting the cord around the headphones and then clipping it to headphones themselves to resolve the issue making headphones just slightly less annoying.. This is not perfect.. but it beats having the box try to slide into my armpit while playing games..As for anything else… I like the led lights on the side.. Its gimmicky… but for though that stupid huge button to turn them on and off is why the cord dongle has to be so big and annoying.. they could not of had the button and just let the color strip be a feature to let me know I have them plugged in. That would of been great.. but now.. stupid huge button for the gimmick feature.. 3 starsSo I would not buy these earphones again.. but I do feel like most people at this price point of 20-25 dollars would find this to be excellent value.. I personally just find them not comfortable enough to recommend them.. but also know a big issue for me is the fact I wear glasses… So its going to be hard for me to find anything that works as long as there is a big ear cushion around the edge… but the thing the makers could do…. is not make a huge control box that rides up into my armpit.. that is just intolerable.Edit 001: in my previous review around March 25, 2020, I gave this product a 3 stars and though it was kinda Meh…. but now It has now been about a month that I ordered these headphones and actually I am find them far more comfortable now looped some of cord from the headphone to the control box, in the belt loop on the control box. This brings the control box that was up to my shoulder, and keeps it out of my armpit. As for the issue with headphone pressing on my glasses arms, I finding that I gotten used to it over time and now am far more comfortable to wear over long periods of time. With these two big issues resolved I think this a set of headphones I would purchase again provided they last a year or two. But one bad thing I am noticing is I wish the mic would shut itself off if you pushed up and out of the way instead of having to switch off a tiny switch on the controller box.Aside from this.. they still sound great and if you can get them for 22 dollars they are worth the purchase. But I suspect not what they are sold out that they might go for a premium since the reviews for this have gotten pretty glowing and they are a #1 best seller at the time of this edit, on April 23, 2020.

  35. As an I.T. person, I have owned and used a lot of headsets. I found this one to be the best by far. First off, it is extremely comfortable. Since I use it a work it makes those long conference calls and video meetings easier to deal with. In addition, the other people on my calls have told me how clear and crisp my voice sounds. Since I work in a corporate office, they are also excellent at reducing/eliminating the outside noise that goes on around me. If someone tries to talk to me when I am wearing them I cannot hear the person at all.I highly recommend these!

  37. These were my third set of headphones as I’m an avid gamer. The other ones I’ve owned were all good, but not great. These… are great. They fit tight on your head and don’t feel cheap or loose at all. The sound quality is top, the noise cancelling is perfect.Recently due to working from home I have to sit next to my roommate who is on calls all day. His work headset picked up any noise I made and if a bug farted someone on his cheap headset would hear it and complain. I gave him these to use for his conference calls and the mic is awesome. They say they can’t hear me at all and only hear him talking. So these aren’t just great gaming but if you have a USB setup for voice calls they are great as well.

  38. I’ve had to live with headsets never being the best experience for me because apparently I have slightly large ears. Two years ago I started wearing glasses and it became a worse experience.Enter the EKSA E900 headset. I read some reviews and decided to try these out. These are awesome. I am finally able to wear a headset for hours with NO pain or discomfort.For people looking for data I have included pics because I want everyone to buy these! The inside of the ear muff measures 2 1/8″ X 1 3/4″ and the padding is thick and comfortable. I really was willing to settle for having a big enough ear cup and deal with pain from my glasses but to my surprise my glasses finally no longer bother me. These are perfect!Another awesome feature, you can run these thru USB or 3.5mm headphone jack (which locks in so you can’t accidentally unplug yourself), the microphone is also removable so you don’t have to have it in your face when playing solo or listening to music AND the volume adjustment is built into the left earpiece so no more annoying box on the cord to fumble with. Mic mute is also a clickable button on the left ear piece. And yes, these have a nice small red lighting effect when used with USB.I’m so glad I found these and I absolutely encourage anyone on the fence to buy these. Headband is as comfortable as the ear muffs and again with big ears and wearing glasses, these are a god send. I was finally able to complete Alien Isolation thanks to these, no more pesky face huggers are sneaking up on me with these bad boys on! These are AMAZING!

  39. When I first got my G432 headset and plugged it in, I have to be honest, my first impression was not great as I was not impressed with the sound quality at all. Eventually I managed to get it to a state where I am happy with it, but it took some work…First off, I would recommend avoiding the aux cables and going with the USB adapter wherever possible, otherwise you’re just looking at a pretty underwhelming stereo headset. The 7.1 features are essential if you want to get your money’s worth out of your G432s, but they only work if you use the USB adapter and download Logitech’s G Hub software.Just installing G Hub wasn’t enough to get my headset performing the way I wanted it though; after enabling surround sound in G Hub you’re given a variety of Equalizer pre-sets to chose from, however none of them sounded quite right to me so I had to take some time to set up a custom Equalizer and only then was I able to get the sound quality to where I wanted it.Unfortunately, my woes with setting up the headset didn’t end there though, as the microphone was not registering any sound while using the USB adapter, so I had to do a google search to troubleshoot the issue (going by the number of results it’s a common issue) and it took a fair bit of digging around in Control Panel, testing various settings and options before I was finally able to get the microphone working through the USB adapter. I haven’t tested the mic too extensively but it seems fairly high quality and the flip up to mute feature is very convenient.Now that I finally have everything up and running the way I want it, I must say I am quite happy with the overall performance of my G432s. I got them to replace a mid-range Sennheiser headset which unfortunately lost sound in one ear, and I’ve found the audio quality of the G432s to be at least comparable to the Sennheisers in most areas, and they even outperform them in some regards, particularly when it comes to bass and lower frequency sounds. I will say I’m not overly convinced by the surround sound aspect of the 7.1 features though; even in the test in their own software it’s not easy to differentiate between whether a sound is supposed to be coming from say, the front or the back right for example.The build quality of the headset seems solid. The materials are nice quality and it feels sturdy without being overly heavy. The headset is comfortable to wear (though the swivelling ear cups take some getting used to) and the noise cancellation seems a lot better than my Sennheisers, with less audio leaking out if you have other people in the same room with you as well.Overall I am happy with my G432s now, and I hope they last me a good few years… but it’s hard to say whether I would actually recommend them given the amount of hoops I had to jump through just to get them working the way I wanted. It’s definitely not the best option for less tech-savvy users, but if you have the patience and the know-how to set them up properly, I think the G432s are a decent headset for their price range.

  40. It’ really quite nice. Has multi coloured RGB around the ear cups so goes Mickey if you have an RGB PC. I have RGB everything so this was a must for me.I am a qualified sound engineer so I think I am qualified to give an option on the sound. All frequency bands are well represented, enough for games and you can turn them up quite loud without distortion. Shows up in Windows as a USB audio output without the need to install anything.To really complete the look get an RGB headphone stand too you won’t regret it.

  41. My 6 yr old son uses the headphones and he’s had a few in the past. The thing he likes the most is its just one USB connector into the PlayStation and the lights work as well. Previous ones have been AUX cable and he’s had a powerbank by the side of him to plug in for the lights. So he’s super happy that he doesn’t have to mess about with all that, it’s one cable and done.More importantly is that the sound is very good and he can’t hear much apart from the game. They’ve got great padding and fully adjustable to all sizes, his Dad uses them occasionally also. I would recommend these gaming headphones.I exchanged some messages with the seller and they were very helpful and giving me advice on which ones to get and why they would suit my sons type of gaming. Its nice to have a personalised experience with someone who knows their stuff.

  43. I’ve been using these headphones for work. I needed something that had a mic that wasn’t attached to the wire part of the headphones. I was using the Beats Solo3 and the mic on the wire would always rub against my shirt or hair and my coworkers would be able to hear that during zoom meetings. Also tried going wireless with the beats and my mic wasn’t as clear.First off, these headphones are REALLY comfortable. There’s no squeezing on my head at all and the memory foam ear pads are squishy. I’m able to wear these all day for work (around 8-10 hours a day) with no headache or neck aches. My head is also small and these fit perfectly when they aren’t extended, I was a little worried since they look huge in the listing. So these would be great for kids as well as small adults. They are able to extend for larger heads though. I like that these also are able to fold up so I can leave them neatly on the side when I’m not working. The earpads are magnetic and can be removed, not sure why anyone would remove them though unless it’s to change themThe best part for me is how simple it is to connect these to my computer. It’s just one cord vs. how some gaming headsets have an auxiliary and USB hookup. These come with an adapter but I’ve been fine using just the main input aux cord.The sound quality is what you’d expect from a $40 pair of headphones. Not as amazing as those $300 noise canceling Bose but decent enough where I can’t hear the AC running in the background if I have music playing. Also the bass on these is surprisingly clear and not distorted like most cheap headphones. I’m definitely happy with the sound quality for $40Pros:- Lightweight and portable- Extremely Comfortable- Cool design (they look like pilot headphones or something)- Simple plug in and play (one cord)- Decent sound quality and bassCons:- Wish the mic could swivel vs. bending the wire upward every time I want it out of the way. Curious how long the mic wire will last if I keep bending it upward when I’m not using it- There’s a knob on the left side that I don’t think does anything?

  44. I bought these headphones for use of gaming on my PS4. I was brought into buying these are they are cheaper than most gaming headphones out there and they promised to have “7.1 surround sound gaming for PC/PS4/XBOX One/Nintendo Switch”. Well I can happily confirm that this isn’t true. I plugged these into my PS4 controller as expected and it gave me stereo sound ONLY. No surround sound. I am returning these with a bad review as it was not clear from the start. There are better headsets out there for slightly more which would do a much better job. DO NOT BUY THESE FOR PS4 OR XBOX USE!I would like to also add that you do get surround sound on PC however you have to install loads of drivers and you have to manually add the surround sound to the headphones, they don’t do it automatically.

  45. The media could not be loaded.  This is the second pair of SG500 headphones from Senzer that I’ve owned. I gifted the first pair to a family member and decided to grab another pair for myself. I love how light and comfortable they feel and the sound quality is pretty darn good!Pros:- Build quality- Comfort around the ears- Soft- Light weight- Foldable and easy to travel with- PC, consoles, iPhones, iPads, Android devices (Non-usb c or lightning port)Cons:- Microphone is permanent attachedOverall: Solid little headset, great band for the buck. 100% would recommend.

  46. The media could not be loaded.  I bought this headset to use for my podcast recording. I think the sounds is pretty darned good for the price. I uploaded a quick video I where I recorded the audio so you can hear how it sounds. Not too bad if you ask me. Overall very comfortable and I like the rope cable covering.

  48. The media could not be loaded.  I am so glad I found these headphones on Amazon. I would give these headphones 10 Stars if I could. I base that assessment on the sound quality and the price. I DJ and I use very expensive Sony and Denon headphones. These headphones cost $200 retail. I can turn them up so loud that I have to take them off my head because it’s too loud and they won’t break. These headphones for $50 are very comparable but the sound quality is better. The drivers that are used in these produce super clear sound. Not only that the way that each headphone is made with a large cavity, they produce very good base. Then the comfort just takes these over the top. The cushions on these headphones are so soft and I could wear them for hours. The first thing I did to test them was plugged them into my PC and play some music through them. I was blown away with how clear the sound was and this is using the onboard video from my PC and not a sound card. I turn them up as loud as they would go with the volume on my PC and they did not distort one bit. I love that you can tilt the microphone up away from your face if you’re going to be using the headphones for music. It comes with the y splitters so that you could plug into your mic on a PC as well. The microphone quality is very good. He’s really add a lot of depth and quality to a gaming experience. I literally hid them in a cabinet because I don’t want my 16-year-old son to try them because then he’s going to want to pair because they smoke his pair I’ve had phones. I really like the retro nostalgic look of these headphones as well. Man, if you’re looking for a really good pair of headphones even just to play music on, I highly recommend these! Buy them now! He will be very happy that you did period trust me. I know that if I ever break my DJ headphones I will not buy another pair and just use these. I could buy four pairs of these for the price I paid for one of my DJ headphones.

  49. This review will follow the same format as my previous review on the Oculus 2 and comparisons will be made, though I will cater for those who are unfamiliar with the the Quest and / or VR too.My Oculus Quest 2 256gb arrived a few hours ago. I swore to myself I do my work, though I found myself opening it within half an hour or so and there I was again experiencing the virtual world ironically within a world which is currently in chaos.————————UNBOXING / HEADSETThe box (pictured) comprises of a cellophane wrapped outer sleeve covering a nice looking natural coloured box (pictured) with a liftable lid. It feel like quality of reminiscent of Mac products.Inside the box, in their own neatly arranged compartments are the headset, the controllers, quick start guide and USB 3 cable and power supply in a small box and a spacer to place on the unit for those who wear glasses.Picking up the headset, I could feel that it was quiet compact – notably smaller to the previous Quest, but this was largely due to the fact that the rigid, rubber head strap has been replaced by a fabric one. In light of this fact, I actually feel like the Quest 2 resembles that of the Quest Go since this also had a fabric strap. With that point in mind, the Quest 2 headset (being a smaller unit too) feel like a Go / Quest hybrid.Not only does the headset feel light, but smaller and a lot more easier to handle. The fabric strap might be seen as a cheaper solution, but I think it’s a much more effective one, especially when factoring in comfort, since it is, without question, a lot more comfortable than the previous Quest. This is perhaps largely due to the fact that the unit isn’t as heavy. A heavy headset would demand something more than a fabric strap, so this is something Oculus have managed to escape.There’s an ‘Elite Strap’ available for the Oculus 2 at £49 and I was going to purchase it for delivery with the Quest 2, but having felt how light and comfortable the unit is, I don’t feel any need for this at all. Perhaps those people who play high paced games might find use for it however. There’s a version at £119 which offer a battery mounted version to extend battery life (plus a carry case), so I do imagine this to be useful, particularly for those people who play on the move and / or wish to avoid being wired in.EDIT: Having used for hours now, the side bands sometimes saw into the tops of my ears which is a slight irritant, but excusable.The nose bridge of the Quest 2 is considerably tighter and can be felt more, but this comes with the advantage that it block out more light, thus adding to the immersiveness.The colour of the headset (and controllers) isn’t white as I initially assumed – rather a very light grey. The surround looks white when remove from the box, but this is in fact a paper covering which is removed.Overall the headset, besides feeling compact, has a better feel due to more pleasing curves. The front is like a rounded bean shape, featuring no level surface area. The unit is fully plastic ridding of the previous material sides of the previous Quest which gathered grime and sweat. Similar padding is present however though there is less of the foam in comparison to the original Quest. The Quest 2 substitutes half of that previous foam with a plastic adjoining the headset and foam. It’s an improvement to minimise foam, but I feel rubber is best utilised for both its durability and waterproof quality. I do think that soaking sweat might actually be part of the idea, much like a headband however…The headset features the power button at the right hand side (whilst wearing), the a USB 3 (charging and PC data) at the left hand side together with a 3.5mm jack for headphones. A volume rocker button features at the bottom right of the unit.———————TOUCH CONTROLLERSHolding the first controller in my hand, I could tell that it too was larger. Even as a person with large hands, I did question if this size was necessary, especially considering that many suers will have smaller hands than myself. Nonetheless, it may just be a matter of time in order to get used to them, being accustomed to the smaller Quest controllers.Buttons are further apart and the top face, previously a teardrop shape is now circular and features a place where the user can rest their thumb.As before, we have a ‘Y’ and ‘X’ buttons and thumb controller on each, including an Oculus button to recalibrate and return to the home screen. There’s also a ‘thumb pad’ in which to rest your thumb on which seems somewhat unnecessary in my eyes – or at least not a good reason to extend the top face.The grip is different in reflection of the size difference and reportedly the triggers are ‘easier to use’ though they feel the same as the Quest to me – good quality and they do the job.The controllers thankfully still take an AA battery in each one and they come installed with one. Simply slide out the plastic tabs and the batteries make their connection and the controllers are ready to use. Apparently greater attention was given to ensure that the battery compartment slider doesn’t slide off during frantic gameplay as it supposedly did with the Quest, though this never did happen to me.Most notably in the specs, ‘Haptic Feedback’ is stated as a feature in which the rumble function in the controllers is meant to be more dynamic differentiating between a figurative finger tap in contrast to a clash of swords. I’m yet to experience a difference here, but reminding myself, I will be more aware of report back.——————STARTING UP ***SPOILERS***Switching on the headset I was greeted with the introduction which shows graphics / animations pertaining to button use and Oculus Guardian setup. For those unfamiliar with VR, Guardian setup is a virtual line which is draw around the room (with the controller) with the threshold set at point where you might bump into things.At this point, I feel it was at least half of the ‘moment of truth’. Immediately I was judging the graphics at this point (explained below), but wasn’t overly impressed.After setup I found myself in the default Environment and the first thing I noticed is that the dashboard and everything else is much smaller. Controls and navigation has changed too and not for the better in my opinion. I’m sure I will get used to this, but I was just appreciating how good the huge console was on the previous Oculus.The controls are mere symbols now without text, so as a new user you’d have to go by trial and error rather than knowing what you are pressing. I’d hope there is a setting to make this otherwise.The previous Quest segued into a great little game which demo’ed the systems capabilities after the setup. It’s a shame that the Quest 2 didn’t do similar, though they may do that in the future.—————IMAGE QUALITYThere are going to be two distinct people with regards to how image will be judged. First there are those who will compare against the Quest and those who will just be amazed as a first time VR user.Some might say that Quest users have already been ‘spoiled’ but it’s still ultimately a matter of how the Quest technology has improved. So, the burning question is; Did the quality of the image blow me away as a previous Quest user? …..to which the answer is a definite ‘no’.Firstly, the setup screen (mostly white and pastels colours) wasn’t giving me enough imagery to judge, though my opinion still remains the same having ventured in.Next, I observed blur – mostly at the sides and then cam the revelation that the lenses could be adjusted after reading the cardboard tabs I’d removed containing the instruction to do so. There’s a 3 point adjuster in which you grab one (or both) of the tense which move together through a range of 3 positions.The good news is, the lens adjustment did help to relieve a 50% of the blur, but on the other hand, the position of the lenses to which my eyes witnessed this (at the far extremes – right and left) causes black ‘walls’ at either side. Pulling the lenses inwards makes it look like you are looking out of a porthole (as many are used to).So, the ultimatum I have is to have 50% less blur viewing the ‘walls’, or put up with the blur whilst looking through the ‘porthole’. For now, I’ve chosen the latter. This may just be a consequence of offering adjustment options (it may be a blessing for some).At the extreme lens settings there was also a notable central glare across all colour backdrops.With that issue aside, to allow fair judgement, I put on my previous Oculus and observed the difference. The Quest 2 in COMPARISON is notably better, even with the blur issue present.So, I feel that is the conclusion. Previous Quest users will notice the difference probably not initially but when they do a comparison. I’m glad I didn’t sell my Quest too too to allow me to do this and appreciate the difference. Granted, some may notice the difference right off the bat.The Oculus 2, much like the one before it, features 4 cameras on the front of the headset used to track the controllers. There is also an option to view your real surrounding whilst the virtual graphics are placed on top i.e Augmented Reality. I was very surprised to discover that despite the potential of AR, they still hadn’t brought these cameras up to an acceptable resolutions – only the same poor resolution needed for controller tracking alone.Colours are as vivid as the Quest – rich and pleasing.The Oculus 2 is 1832 x 1920 pixels per eye (50% increase in resolution over the original Quest).EDIT: Having played for a good few hours now, I can say with confidence that this is a significant improvement in the graphics department….viewing object CLOSE UP. This here is the clincher for all VR clarity. The very limit of the graphics are show when you look at things right next to the eyes, sync as holding up a weapon in a game. I noticed this in a big way when I bought and played Walkabout Mini Golf and viewing the course and it’s detail from a birds eyes view. Absolutely intriguing. Crisp as 4K!There’s no question about it, we’ve reached a level of normal displays where we can beat our our retinas (hence Apples ‘Retina’ monitor) however we still need that ongoing advancement in technology to make things in the middle / background crisp too!—————SOUNDCrisp, clear and quality. I did feel that it was better than the Quest sound quality, though it was up full volume whereas I usually listen at half that volume.Still, there seems to be a slight improvement. Highs, low and midrange are on point, making experiences aurally immersive.I will be experimenting with my Sennheiser 650 headphones soon too.——————APPS & GAMES / PERFORMANCEBeing a new system, the cupboard was bare with regards to downloaded titles, but there was plenty on offer to download besides my older catalogues of games which I was pleased to see.When the Quest launched, there was only around 8 games, so those entering into the Quest 2 scene will do so at a good time since there’s plenty on the store now and there’s a lot of free content to enjoy too.Even in the virtual space, the head tracking is noticeably better. Even though i noticed no latency with the Quest, there is just a level of quality to the movement which is difficult to describe. Basically it’s just a greater sense of reality. I expect this feel to perhaps increase, at least in high speed apps and games when the refresh rate is increased. Facebook have revealed that it’s currently set at 72Hz yet will be increased up to 90Hz.Before I bought a Quest 2, I asked around YouTube to ask whether my apps and games purchased for the Quest would be carried over to the Quest 2. This was confirmed on the condition that I linked / merged my Facebook account to my Oculus account, which I did. As mentioned, all my games was there and I download a good few of them at lightening speed but was gutted to discover that save games are NOT carried over. I had hopes of continuing my vast progress on Mini Moto Racing X, but this is seemingly not to be.Nonetheless, open opening Mini Moto Racing X and the graphics are notably most crisp and the experience was improved overall. I found myself glancing around the environment actually delaying the race just to appreciate it (after viewing on the Quest 20 mins previous). Next I tried out Pistol Whip and put not only the graphics to the text, but also the head tracking which improved the game considerably. The improvement in the graphics could be seen even from the menu screen and bettered itself as the game continued.One prominent feature of the Quest 2 is its ability to be hooked to a PC. My only intention is to play independently though I would have tested for the sake of my review, though I’m strictly a Mac user at present due to work.The refresh rate of the Oculus Quest is up to 90HzThe launch refresh rate is 72HzEDIT: Besides my previous games, I’ve bought and played Walkabout Mini Golf and it’s the most realistic thing (besides table tennis) that I’ve witnessed to date. It feels like a proper game of mini golf. The physics are absolutely spot on. I’ve also experience RezInfinite and was blown away, literally saying ‘wow’ – completely unlike me.——————FINAL THOUGHTSAs a previous Quest owner, I’m pleased with my upgrade. Due to the fact that saved games are not carried over however, I will still be keeping the Quest for now, since I’ll have to play my games on that system.As a conditioned VR user, in light of these ‘walls’ and ‘porthole’ that I mention, I do hope that more focus is placed upon trying to increase the field of view. I don’t know anything about the technicalities and problems relating to making this happen, but I feel ridding of those ‘sides’ is going to bring immersiveness well into the next level. What’s more, the front cameras could easily be a much better resolution to open upon potential and future proof augmented reality. As far as I’m aware, those aren’t special cameras and cameras in this day an age are not expensive, so to have a VR headset boast AR capabilities too shouldn’t be too much to expect.For those entering into VR for the first time, or even from something like the Oculus Go which only tracks a hand movement, there’s probably no better way than to enter in than via the Oculus 2. You’re getting the full VR experience in which you can roam around a room, you’re getting great visuals and what’s more, you have access to a load of titles, whether it be experiences (apps) or games that you are interested in.If you’re on the move, or like to have many apps and games available to you quickly and easily, you may wish to consider the 256GB version for the extra £100. Most importantly, if we consider that fact that apps will become larger and larger in file size, it’s a future proof option. If you are just dipping in your toe as a first time user however the 128GB might serve you fine.As mentioned, I think it’s a ‘quest’ for technology to eventually yield graphics that are as crisp in the middle and background as they are ‘up close’ and I really look forward to that.Virtual Reality is going to become astronomical. It’s great to be part of its advancement.The Quest 2 is up there with the best hardware in which to currently experience it!——————Advantages* Objects ‘up close’ are near 4K crisp* Room-scale freedom (as in the original Quest)* PC Connectivity though no PC required* Haptic Feedback (yet to witness)* Vast range of titles on launch* Greater feeling of being in a ‘reality’.* Sharper image with much greater feel of depth* More responsive head tracking* Much more comfortable & easy to fit* Good battery life* Charges quickly enough (approx 2.5 hours)Disadvantages* Front cameras still a poor resolution marring Augmented Reality potential* Lens adjustment results in ‘walls’ at extremes* Lens adjustment results in central glare at inners* Side straps saw into ears* Physical games cause the padding to soak in sweat* Facebook account is required

  50. In a time you have toothbrushes with an internet connection we now have data mining goggles.Firstly I have an oculus quest and prior to that an oculus go. I wanted the quest 2 to play the games library I already have in better definition with a better refresh rate and a lighter headset. I have never had any social media accounts. I realised that a facebook account is required for use of the quest 2 (and any new oculus account). I have been unable to set up this as a request to join has been disabled even though I have never posted anything or used the “service” – you cannot even link a headset to the app without going through entirely unnecessary reams of GPDR defiling information. Why do you need to know a family members cervical smear result, the cats stool sample, whether I dress to the right or left just to use this headset? This is technology at its worst – I don’t expect a radio to decide if I can listen to a song or a home cinema system to decide if I am allowed to watch a film I already own, yet this oculus update renders for me the headset unusable as I cannot register an account – and use an appliance I have paid for and use games I have already paid for. It arrived yesterday I spent 4 hours trying to get the thing to allow me to use it. I have actually binned it as it is unusable, £400 literally thrown away. I will continue to use the inferior Quest 1 on an oculus account (until that is discontinued in 2023). Buyer beware , you are sacrificing God knows what personal information to God knows who for no justifiable reason. You are at the mercy of the data hoarders in this facebook experiment. Please wait until another company produces a stand alone VR set which will allow you the courtesy of using what you have paid for. Entirely unacceptable.

  51. First off, This device will force you to create a facebook account or link to an existing. All usage goes into facebook systems. Every menu has free or useful content hidden and its all about selling you more.So it could be amazing, but facebook has trashed it. If it loses connectivity to the network or it cant report on you anymore, it fails instantly even on locally running games.What could have been great is a total wasted purchase due to deliberately limited software and facebooks priorities.

  52. Nice sound quality and a very nice fit over the ears. Easy to switch between wired and wireless. Wireless, for the price of these, works very well – nice and clear audio. The microphone pics up voice well and not much else. My friends tell me that on the other end of the line they can hear me clearly – that is all that you can ask in a headset. I recommend.

  53. Only thing I did not like about this pair of earphones is that the microphone is not flexible on it, so there’s limited movement. I absolutely love the sound quality though, better than my other pair for sure. Wire is very secure as well as it has a fabric rather than plastic coating. Happy with the purchase

  54. We have had these for a year. The first pair broke very soon after first using with the microphone stopping working, it then became loose. Amazon replaced them although there was a bit of confusion.With the second pair, the microphone just stopped working and became loose again. And now the sound has gone funny, with some of the internal speakers not working so only certain times are hard not giving a great experience.I’d expect this to happen to cheaper pairs of headphones not £40+ ones. Although our son has a cheaper pairs and they’ve lasted a lot better.I wouldn’t recommend.

  55. The product in itself is quality and the sound is great, however this has been advertised as 7.1 surround sound but it is not. It is stereo sound. I am severely disappointed as all of its description and images focus on its 7.1 surround sound for gaming, which it does not have. This is false advertisement and this product is not fit for the purpose in which I bought it so it will go in the bin and be replaced by a product from a company that represent their products truthfully and I will be filing a report against this products supplierUpdate: 05/12/20Following my above review the company contacted me and took on board my comments and were kind enough to make things right by supplying me with a set of their true 7.1 surround sound sets which I have just received and tested and I have to say that in incredibly impressed with the product.As with the other headset, the quality is fantastic and with the added bonus of true 7.1 surround sound to boot!After my initial misgivings regarding their misleading advertisement I can truly say that this company turned things around and I believe they were sincere in their effortsI cannot recommend these headsets enoughThanks again Eksa

  57. This is an awesome headset. I recently started a job where I needed a headset to make phone calls. I needed something inexpensive that would arrive quickly. I am so happy I found this set! It was affordable, it’s a name brand that I trust, it’s super comfortable, plus the lights on it are pretty!Let me elaborate on comfort for a second, it fits over my ears and the ear cups are cushioned so it’s really nice for extended wear. It has an elastic strap under the top so the hard strap doesn’t need to sit directly on your head, the elastic rests gently there instead.The sound clarity is incredible. I’ve listened to music through these in between calls and it sounds absolutely perfect. I’ve had no complaints with voice clarity of the microphone either.It’s just kind of a bonus that it lights up.Overall I would and have recommended this to anyone who needs a headset – be it for work, gaming, whatever. This is the one you need!

  58. Large, fairly comfortable and decent audio quality but there’s a few things I really dislike about this product.The main things that I dislike are:1. The dongle, just set these up with bluetooth. I only have limited USB slots.2. If you don’t charge it for a day and it drops below like 80% battery these SCREAM at you at full volume every 2 minutes. Why is this a feature? I don’t know but I have ripped these headphones off my head when it happens and thrown them across the room because they have tried to deafen me. My games and music etc will be at a fairly low volume then suddenly “BEEP BEEP…. BEEP BEEP” at 100% volume.3. On zoom calls/teams meetings the microphone just dies. Usually, the microphone can be sat a bit back from my mouth but on zoom calls it basically has to be in my mouth and I need to be shouting to be heard.Otherwise, these are good. Much more comfortable than my Bose headphones, better control on the volume. Audio quality also seems a bit better than my Bose as wellRated 3-stars because these headphones like to bring my ears close to bleeding if I forget to charge them

  59. Used mainly for zoom meetings on laptop. Also works on mobile phone.The head band is a little on the small side.The ear pads sits on top of my ear and not around it.

  60. Very good sound quality and mic quality and it looks cool. Good for discord calls. My only complaint is that the cable is way too short and there is no way it is reaching my pc comfortably.

  61. I bought these headphones to go with my PS5 as I was sick of my old wired ones. These are very very easy to set up with the PS5, all you have to do is plug the USB receiver into the PS5 and turn the headphones on and they instantly pair and your PS5 will do the rest for you. The sound quality is truly amazing from these headphones and the sound quality from the microphne is second to none. My friends were amazed that my headset only cost less than £60 as they have much more expensive ones and their microphone quality is not as good as mine now. They are very comfortable to wear even for many hours at a time (all night sessions much to the annoyance of the wife ha ha) and the battery life is amazing too, I managed to game solidly for 12 hours the other day and the battery lasted the whole time.Everything considered I am very very happy with this headst and pleased with my pucrhase and for the following reasons i am going to rate them 5 stars:ComfortableEasy set upExcellent sound qualityExcellent microphoneAmazing battery lifeThey look great too

  62. I’m really happy with this headset. I wanted something I could use for chatting over Discord, but that I could also use to listen to music and these headphones work well for me. Obviously the sound quality isn’t going to be as good as more expensive or dedicated headphones, but I think it’s actually quite good for the price. Friends also mentioned that the mic is really clear. Overall I’m really happy. I went with these as I have other JBL products and I trust the brand. I’m not disappointed.

  63. Really comfortable, easy to set up and worked fine for less than a month and so had to return…….Company contacted me to apologise and are going to send out a new one and have also given refund. So have changed to 3 stars as the customer service from the company has been great. Once new headset arrives and works for more than a month, I will hopefully be able to change my review as when it was working it was a great headset, sound was good, mic was good, noise cancelling was good. So fingers crossed I can up date this review with some good feed back and change the rating.

  64. They are good quality for the money. Microphone is good and the headphones are comfortable. Sound quality is also good.They are not at all noice cancelling and also everyone around you can hear your music. So I just use them at home.

  65. I picked this particular headset because my various computers all disagree on whether headsets should be connected via a pair or a single 3.5mm jack. I hate faffing around with adapters, and when my old headset started falling to bits I decided I wanted the replacement to be a USB one. I wanted something that looked comfortable, and wasn’t too garish. At the time of purchase, nobody had reviewed this particular model, but I did some due diligence and spotted that EKSA produce some very similar models that are well reviewed both here on Amazon and elsewhere.The headset seems surprisingly well made for the price. The metal forks connecting the earpieces to the headband seem solid, and the black grille on the back of the earpieces is also metal. There’s no creaking as you put them on or adjust them, and I appreciate the braided cable which should survive some wear. I hadn’t spotted that on the pictures! I like the carrying/storage bag they came with, and that the microphone is properly adjustable. I get the general impression that someone has put some real thought into the design here: they feel to have been built to last.Comfort is very good, with the thick padded earpads doing a fine job. This looks to be one of the things EKSA upgraded from the older E900 (not plus) model, and I’m very happy that they did. The foam inside isn’t the super-soft memory foam you sometimes see elsewhere, but this much regular foam in the earpads of such a lightweight headset gives a very comfortable feel. The headband is similarly well padded, and I’ve worn them for about 4 hours straight to chat whilst gaming while barely noticing them.The built-in USB sound card worked out-of-the-box on all four of the machines I tried. Sound quality is roughly in-line with what you’d expect. Gaming headphones tend to be tuned quite heavily towards the bass end of the spectrum to give depth and impact to explosions and gunfire, and these are no exception. Mids are a little less muddy than on my old headset, but I wouldn’t really recommend these for music listening. Highs are rolled off, as you might expect. The thick earpads help to cut out a fair amount of background noise, but I don’t really think they’re designed for external noise deadening or cancelling.The microphone is a pleasant surprise! I recorded some clips of me speaking into the headset and played them back, and the mic does a great job of picking up my voice clearly, with reasonable tonality, and not much by way of background noise. Obviously, if you’re heavily into streaming etc you’ll likely need a proper studio mic, but for us regular folks this is more than good enough.Overall, I’d happily recommend this to anyone looking for a comfortable USB headset for gaming, for chatting to friends, or for work meetings etc. They have similar sound quality to most other gaming headsets, a good microphone, are super comfortable, and are well built. I’d much rather use these than a budget offering from a big brand.

  67. You get what you pay for. The build quality is pretty good and the threaded cord is a nice touch. The adjustable strap is comfortable and the earphones cup the ears well.However, I found the sound quality on these were really below par. The maximum volume was atrocious, and although these aren’t noise cancelling – any noise disturbance around you could easily interrupt your gaming experience.I know the value is fairly good all-round – however these drastically underperform in the one thing they should do well; sound!

  68. The media could not be loaded.  First of all what I like the most of all these headphones is how comfortable they are. My ears form stick out or anything but after longer periods of having other headphones on I was hurting. The pads around the airflow are extremely soft in the fabric inside I think is what makes a difference. I like the option that you have to turn off the LEDs which is nice if you’re in a dark room they are very very bright if that’s what your into. They also look extremely good. You can tell attention to detail is very important on making them.I would buy again. I hope this review was helpful.

  69. These are the third set of headphones that we have purchased for our son since Christmas. He is very happy with these!

  71. These are so comfy! In fact i prefer these to the PS4 official brand. They light up too, if you want to twitch that looks cool.The audio in game from the mic is reported by my friends to be super clear and also my in game recordings from my mic sound crisp and clear.The mic is bendable for when you are in no need for it or to adjust to suit comfort.They have a soft cushion around the ears and top for your head. They adjust to fit my head and even my 7 year olds, so great for use by all the family.I suffer earache from long term use from different sponges around the ear on other headsets ive used in the past, however these cancel external noise and are the most comfortable that i have ever had.I can hear enemies in game coming from the left and right in clarity 🙂 makes the gaming experience much more better than just using tv sound/speaker.I recommend this product.Affordable, great sound and mic audio and really comfortable for hours of play!

  72. I have been looking for the perfect wireless headset for some time. I am done with wried headsets that crackly at the connection and get caught on things pulling them out the the jack (probably why the started to crackle at the port)I researched all sorts of models and went with these.Pros:+ The surround sound is excellent. Hearing footsteps in game play is critical to dominate in shooter games.. and this helps me pinpoint the enemy by sound alone. I can tell if someone restocks from across the map.+ Microphone is solid. I love the detachable connection for when I want to just listen to music. The mute button is on the left ear… along with a master volume control.+ Pairing is very easy. The dongle plugs in to the playstation and you simply go to audio settings and hold the power button to turn on and pair.+ These LED lights are subtle. They do not distract. They tell people, I am on the game… even in a dark room. I can turn them off with a simple button press.+ Charging light tells me when it is time to plug them in… surprised by how long they hold a charge. Comes with a nice long micro cable for charging.+ Wireless is the BEST! I don’t know why it took me this long to get a pair. I was worried it needed a dongle, but that worked flawlessly. I didn’t even need the instructions, but they have 5 pages to clear up anything that is not already intuitive.+ Very comfortable. They do not get hot and feel soft on the ears while keeping sound seal.+ Bass – They said it had a deep bass and they are not kidding. The bass is amazing. Explosions and gameplay are cinematic.CON:- Initially they did not surround my ear very tight. The bottom was slightly open. I was able to fix this easily by just ever so slightly tilting the metal frame on each side inward. Now they rest flat around my ear and make a good seal. what a difference this tweak made.- The seal is good… but they are not true noise canceling. The microphone can filter out sounds… that is some smart technology, but the headphones themselves are more passive noise canceling. I did not expect them to be completely sound proof… they do a good enough job to isolate gameplay from home life.For the money, these were a great investment. Wireless is the only way to go for headphones. I will never go back to a cable… but it is nice to know I can plug in the provided cable if I need to.

    All round great product,MicrophoneThe microphone quality is clear and crisp, however the noise cancellation is a little too sensitive. If the earcup is twisted away slightly people cant hear me properly, this is also due in part to the rigid microphone pointing straight forward.Ear-cups / SpeakersThe passive noise cancellation on the headphones is fantastic and the sound quality is superb.ControlsIn line controls do sit on the edge of the desk in the way of the keyboard, so could do with being another 20-30cm down the cableFitI find these much more comfortable to wear than my previous DS502’s oddly enough, they feel snug and secure and dont push on my glasses too muchCableI haven’t measured this but plenty long enough to go over the top of my desk and down the back to my pc on the floor with slackLEDUnlike the 502’s there isnt a mic mute led (this is on the controls) so harder to see if you have muted yourself. The earcup leds are nice and bright, but not very visible from the front. (Good or bad dependant on what you want)

  75. The media could not be loaded.  I bought this wireless headset for use with my laptop. I’d been using a wired headset, which worked great, but the cord kept getting in my way and annoyed me. This wireless headset is exactly what I was looking for. It’s lightweight and extremely comfortable. I can wear them for hours with no problems. The headband and ear cups are well cushioned and made of memory foam. The headband is adjustable, so don’t worry if you’ve got a big noggin. 🤣 I like that the ear cups completely cover my ears. It helps block out the majority of the ambient noise. It’s great because sometimes I like to wear them, but not turn them on. Then people think I’m doing something, when I’m actually on Facebook. 🤣 The mic is easily detachable, in case you want to take it off. It has noise reduction technology, which helps provide crisp, clear sound for the listener. There’s little to no latency and works great on all of my conference calls. I haven’t had any complaints from my coworkers or clients. It’s easy to adjust and there’s a nice foam cover on it. You can turn the mic on/off from a button on the outside of the left side earpiece, as well as the volume control. The earpiece on the right side has a button to turn the LED lights on/off, as well as the on/off button for the entire headset. I like that the RGB LED’s aren’t super bright and annoying. The colors are muted and they gradually rotate through the colors. I’ve had other ones that flash like crazy and I’m worried someone’s going to have a seizure. 🤣 The set-up couldn’t be easier. I tried it out on both a Windows and a Mac operating system. On my son’s Windows desktop, we just plugged in the dongle and it automatically paired. On my Mac laptop, I had to go into System Preferences, then Sound, click on the device ‘V07W Wireless Headphone’ and it paired. You only have to go through this process once, after that it will automatically pair when you plug in the dongle. The 2.4GHz wireless connection is stable with no interference or latency. I’m impressed with the sound quality. Not only is it crisp and clear, but the surround sound will knock your socks off. I watched a movie and felt like I was actually in it. WOW!! The bass is also pretty darn good. But for me, the best part is the amazing battery life. I can charge them on Sunday, use them Mon, Tues & Wed with no problems. I charge them again on Wed and I’m good through Fri. That’s a HUGE plus for me, because I’m the worst at remembering to charge them. Overall, these are a solid gaming headset, especially at this price point. I’d definitely recommend them to everyone.

  76. Tuve la oportunidad de comparar este producto con otros headset gama de entrada como:HyperX Cloud Stinger (no los core)HyperX Clod XCorsair HS50 proAstro A10Razer Kraken XDebo decir que estos Blackshark y los Astro A10 son los que tienen mejor calidad de audio, que de hecho realmente es lo que vale la pena pagar para una experiencia gaming, a mi gusto ganan por poco los drivers y el microfono de los Astro A10 pero en la comodidad, aislamiento y cancelación de ruido los Blackshark no tienen comparación aparte en PC se compensa bastante el audio, ya que te incluyen un ecualizador con el que podras configurar varios aspectos de musica peliculas y juegos.Si estas buscando unos headset de menos de $1200 te recomiendo estos son los mejores tanto para consolas como PC y la verdad desde que haces el unboxing te das cuenta la superioridad que tienen a los demas, si bien tiene sus desventajas como no poder quitarle el microfono o el cable del jack 3.5mm no por eso son malos, ya que son para jugar y estan muy bien balanceados en sonido y materiales. Ver una película con estos headset es una delicia.Si solo los vas a ocupar para consolas no te recomiendo ninguno de los dos hyperX ya que sus frecuencias bajas son muy pobres y su altos son muy chillones a mi parecer se les puede sacar mas provecho ecualizando en PC.Los corsair y los kraken no estan mal pero en volumen alto si se llegan a embarrar los sonidos pero son mejores opciones a los hyperx en consolas.En resumen si lo que buscas es un headset completo en cuastion de audio y comodidad estos son los adecuados los materiales se ven y se sienten adecuados a lo que pagas, pero si no te importa sacrificar la comodidad para obtener un mejor microfono para streming ve por los Astro A10.Espero que esto te ayude en gran medida para elegir tus primeros headset.

The sound quality is incredible and I really like the design and comfort of these headphones, I can wear them for 24 hours with no issue at all.Initially I had issues understanding what the “BASS” button does as it’s not really noticeable in games. HOWEVER, if you listen to music, pressing the bass button will make the headphones jump off your head – the BASS IS REALLY STRONG!!I think the only drawback is the placement of the volume control as it can become very annoying- sometimes it gets over the keyboard or under your palm.

  78. It looks really cool when it’s in the dark! They have good sound quality that lets you get lost in the game your playing

  79. My husband who teaches online, loves this! Easy to connect and very close to hear his students as well as they hearing him.

  80. My old Turtle Beach Z60 snapped, which considering I’m now working from home and need a headset for online meetings meant I didn’t have the luxury of taking my time to try and find a great replacement, I needed something tomorrow, cheap, that I could use for gaming as well.The EKSA e900 Plus, fit the bill so I ordered it not expecting much and I was pleasantly surprised. The sound quality is great, the 7.1 virtualization works really well. It’s comfortable enough to wear all day with no issues (and over glasses, it doesn’t press on them at all), I’ve had almost no issues with the mic, and it’s completely plug and play, in fact , I think I prefer this headset to my old one in almost every area..The caveat, there are just a few issues to be aware of, that may or may not impact you. I said almost no issues with the mic, I’ve had one colleague say that I’m a bit quieter now, just one, but something to be aware of, I have the mic volume at 100%. The inline control is tiny, too close to the headset and almost impossible to see when wearing it, and if you want to see what the symbols on the mute button are, you’ll need a magnifying glass, not a massive issue, but one to be aware of, and finally (and this is why I only gave it 4 stars), the volume. The headset has 2 volumes, off or on, on is fine, it’s perfectly comfortable, it sounds good, it won’t be damaging your hearing, but it just is not adjustable. The inline volume control takes the volume from nothing to the one level and back again, and the PC master volume does the same, it’s a bit odd, I’m not sure why the volume controls don’t work, it would be nice to have some control, but it’s fine as is.All in all, if you want a budget headset for working from home AND gaming, you could do a lot worse than this one.

  82. Don’t buy. The mic does not work, tried it on discord and google meat and loads of other websites. Nothing. Tried plugging into into both my monitor and pc, nothing. I bought an adapter so I could connect it to my phone and use it that way, finally it worked but the audio quality was horrific, it kept cutting out and you could barely hear it. Waste of money, will be returning.

  83. bought it and the sound quality is okay a little tinny but okay, but the microphone doesn’t work tried with different software but none of them detect any audio. Normally havit products are good quality but I wouldn’t bother with this

  85. I really enjoyed this Headset : good sound, confortable, light, isolating enough from surrouding noise. Sadly after 4 months the jack went defective and sound was only coming out from the right side. I had to bend gently the jack to make it work on both ears. Bad luck I guess, so will buy again from the same brand.

  86. I’ll admit that I didn’t expect much in terms of quality due to the price but it is much better than I expected.People can’t hear my background noise & the sound quality is pretty decent. The wire isn’t a normal plastic one, it’s covered in a fibre feel coat & I’ve had no issues with knots, getting caught on things or splits.The only issue I think would come up is that I don’t recommend it to anyone who believes they have big ears. I don’t & have plenty of room, but it isn’t going to be comfortable for those who are gifted in the ear lobe department.If I need a new one (I might buy a spare “just in case”) I’m buying this one again.

  87. Here we go, 1 week old, so far have been excellent, had problems with volume and noise on my old ones, on the old ones others were saying extremely hard to hear me, although volume up at maximum, causing unwanted noise to creep in. On getting these EKSA E900 Plus headphones, had to reduce my volume settings and external noise dropped by quite a bit. I have an archway between the two rooms, so a vast improvement. The actual fit of headphones also better for my big head. Need the maximum size for my bike helmet, and that is even tight, so these extend quite a bit and are nice and comfortable upon my head so far. The EKSA E900 Plus, seem well made, big plus is the removable microphone. Yes I would recommend them plus would purchase them again.

  89. I was really impressed with these headphones when they arrived on 14/04/21. They looked so cool with the spectrum colours and the sound was really clear.3 months later (20/07/21) the microphone isn’t working and there is a tear in the fabric on one ear ‘muff’. Really disappointed as after just 3 months I’m going to have to spend more money. This time I’ll buy a well known brand.I was taken in by the good reviews, and am so disappointed that there’s nothing I can do about it.So shocked that they didn’t last as long as my Turtle Beach P12s that they were bought as a replacement for 😭😡

  91. Good sounding headset. Primary purpose is for online meetings; I’m an engineer recently returned to the office of cubicles, but we’re still doing all meetings online, and so I need a good headset for the office. I tried some different options before finding this HP set, which I plan on keeping. I’m told that my voice is clear and plenty loud to others, and other’s voices sound fine to me.When not on meetings, I use these at work for music. Overall, the headset is warmer sounding, with a pleasing mid-low end. Also, they’re not as crisp as some cheaper headphones/sets, with a lightly rolled off top end, which I consider a plus. I find accented high end to be quite fatiguing on the ears after a while. Solid bass, not overly hyped; very listenable. My evening job is as a recording engineer, and I’m used to using very high-end, flat/accurate professional headphones for tracking and sometimes mixing. I’m fairly picky, and these, though I wouldn’t call them accurate, are still quite listenable for the money paid.They’re slightly bulky, slightly heavy, and so I wouldn’t want to wear them all day, but a few hours a day is okay. The earpieces dampen sound around me reasonably well, which is nice when trying to concentrate on a meeting and people in the cubicles around me are talking.In all honesty, I would prefer no lights, but what the heck, they’re good for a smile. :^)I’ve had these for a week, so can’t yet speak to the reliability. If they should stop working in the near future, I will update this review. But as for how they perform, I’m happy.

  92. My sons headset broke and he needed a replacement its been a few months and still works great … i take it the noice cancellation works great since he cant ever hear me yelling his name 🤭😂🤣

  94. I’m not a gamer, I use them with work, definitely drowns out the background sounds and they are comfortable. Wear them for 9 hours a day if not more. I am sooo very happy I made the decision to buy them. They are wireless and I’ve connected it to my laptop, so I don’t have to sit there all day, I can walk around and when a call comes in just sit at my desk.

    The media could not be loaded.  My reviews are detailed. If you want the short and thin, it’s a good product, but buckle up for a wild ride to get what you think you paid for. 7.1 surround is not easily obtainable.Now, I should start by explaining that I am very technical. I am a software developer who for ten years ran a custom to order computer company that catered to enthusiasts with hefty hardware and software needs to target specific gaming goals.The device is gorgeous, durable, sounds awesome, super comfy, has a very nice feel to the cord, and my favorite feature: the physical mute button when you squeeze the extendable, flexible microphone is super satisfying… and glows red when you’re on mute. The style and look is absolutely inspiring, and all this other stuff is awesome…yet I still can’t run this thing in 7.1.They say there’s a code to enter in the Synapse app. They say after you register the product you’ll get the code (your serial number is under one of your ear pads, BTW… You’re welcome). They also say that this is virtual 7.1 based off 5.1 technology, and most games only support 5.1 anyway. They ALSO say that if you want to you can pay for a new code to subscribe to the ability to use 7.1 features. I would sooner sell it than to pay a subscriber fee to use my own headphones.So after three days of messing with this thing I’ve totally given up on some email they claim to have sent, some code to enter into another software suite they want me to download, and expected software letdowns from the games I play that don’t support 7.1 anyway.I don’t see a need for all this hubbub… just pack the ability with the product and make the software run it… there’s no reason for this “enter a code to get another code to download a new bit of software to enter another code” crap. That may have been exciting for 12 yearolds in the 90’s but we just want it to work. For the love of all that is holy… for the prices we pay, just make it work!

    This works on my PC and my Mac for taking calls for my work at home job. If you work from home this will a great buy.My opinions on the functionsPC has the best quality on USB in terms of sounding more clear. I feel Bluetooth mode has more bass though.IPhone obviously it sounds better on a 3.5 mm headphone jack connection using the adapter. It’s sound good on Bluetooth also can’t complain just sounds better on the wired connection if you want the best connection.Super convenient that I can use it for all devices.It was worth the purchase for the cost!It’ll the quality is not as good as what I’m use to for the price but the difference is not night and day it’s only a slight difference in complaints I can live with it and get by.I am so happy and can’t wait to take calls using the wireless method.

  100. Worked seamlessly out of the box with my computer, and in Bluetooth mode paired with my phone easily. I got this mostly for use with my computer that lacks Bluetooth, and didn’t notice it had a Bluetooth option, but was pleasantly surprised to see I could also use it with my phone.Pros:+good quality sound+worked easily out of the box+comfortableMixed:-Voice cues when you press a button (“Bluetooth mode”, “microphone off”, etc.) completely interrupt the audio and are slow to the point of annoyance, but at least you never have any doubt about what it’s doing, unlike some headsets that just beep at you.Cons:-Bluetooth and 2.4G modes do not work at the same time (you have to choose)-Microphone doesn’t rotate out of the way – can be bent away, but it’s still a little bit of a hassle to use as just headphones if you want the microphone out of the way (e.g. when eating)Overall exactly what I was looking for, works very well, with a few unexpected added features that have associated minor annoyances but that for me do not detract from the positive experience of using it.

  102. Alright, let me be up front. If you’re looking for ultra-class surround sound noise canceling 500 ft bass boosted headphones. You’re not going to find them here.If you ARE looking for a wireless headset that you can use for some pretty good sound that doesn’t require you to be tethered to your desk then you’re in the right place.I primarily use these as a PC headset and have not connected them to any console. As a PC headset? I love these things, really I do. The sound quality is great, and it’s great regardless of where in the room I am. If I go across the hall I’m still connected, if I’m around the corner in the restroom – I’m still connected.If you’re doing remote work stop reading this and just go buy a pair. If you’re not doing competitive play gaming, these work great for that too.

  104. Seems to work okay, but isn’t compatible with USB phone/computer switch I was going to use it with. Tried to return it, but found for the first time ever with an Amazon items that it wasn’t returnable. It would be nice if Amazon displayed these rare exceptions more prominently in the product details.

  105. I was very pleased with the price I paid and had high hopes after reading some good reviews about this headset. However I was very quickly let down.The sound it very intermittent – it will cut out at times, so that I either catch every other word spoken or miss entire sentences. The sound quality is also quite poor and almost muffled sounding.The RGB doesn’t work when you’re using the headset, not without it being plugged in elsewhere while gaming (not exactly convenient).I’ve had this headset for approx. 6 weeks now and only one side of the headset works. Absolutely no sound comes from the other side.I wish I’d paid that little bit extra for a better known brand.

  107. Initial impressions of this headset are good. Sound quality is impressive, the mic functions are clear and easy for other people who you are gaming with to hear what you say.It is comfortable, with plenty of adjustment for the head band part of the frame. The controls are easily accessible to mute the mic, or turn volume up on the ear pieces.Too early to tell on longevity and life of the product, but so far, it has been a happy purchase

  108. Bought as a gift for the hubby.He was over the moon.Brilliant quality well made and worked perfect with his ps4.Would recommend to anyone.Plus you get peace whilst he’s wearing his headphones

  109. Sweet deal for a pretty good set of gaming headphones. Very comfortable to wear and adjustable. The sound quality is awesome and can control with a click of a button. Good noise cancelation. Make sure to download the updated drivers which only took a quick minute. I did test it right out the box before doing it and it still worked great. It lights up nice. I used this on my gaming PC without any problems. You can also use on PS4 and PS5 BUT not directly to the controller you have to plug it into the USB port of the console. If you don’t mind that then it’s good for your console too or even as a back up pair. The price was a great.

  110. It is great value for money. Highly recommended.

  111. I was looking for a budget a headphone, and after reading and watching some reviews, this seem to be the one with a decent price.As many stated it is not the best for the audio quality but it surprising does have good bass. For its basic use of listening, words aren’t muffled or garbled; everything very understandable and clear. Instruments are distinguishable and detailed. Depending on the music some do sound just alright but nothing sounds flat or unappealing. I have not used the microphone, yet it does bend and can be removed.I have a big head and the supple material for the earpads and headband feel very comfortable, almost like they aren’t even there after awhile. They are soft enough and do bend to adjust to the shape of my head. They do feel warm after some use, and my ears become humid and sweat over time. My big head does feel cramped after having the headphones on for close to an hour. If your head is smaller, you may fair better.The construction of the headphone feels sturdy and it has metal adjustable sliders. The left earcup has the ports for the mic, jack, and the usb-c, a mute button for the mic, and the volume dial which works like a master volume control. It does not adjust the volume mixer in the pc but can extend how much louder or quieter it can be, which I find helpful.Along the headphones, out of the box it comes with a usb-c to usb-a cable which cable makes the red LED logo glow. It also comes with 3.5mm jack to connect to any gaming console or the pc headphone/mic port and an extension cord. The headphone and its accessories can be stored in its own leather pouch, which looks to be durable and big enough to hold every item in the box.

  112. TLDR: I wear glasses and headsets dig into my head causing me pain and leaving marks into my skull from pressing my glasses into my head etc. These have not (at least not yet).. and I am so excited. They feel roomy and nice, I was wearing them when I didn’t even need to cause I just don’t mind them all day long. (SO NICE!)I had to write this, I only had them like 2 days now. Wore them all day today and I cannot believe I’m not in pain like I have been from my hyper x cloud 2. My other headset broke. The mic just doesn’t work. So I needed a new one. I didn’t put much thought into this, It was a good price and kind of impulse bought it after making sure it was in fact a USB connection because I can’t deal with finding the right port for the circle ones/jacks. (I am very tired).I wear glasses, my headsets tend to dig and cause pain into my head. These are not… very roomy feeling. My only gripe as my other headset mic could come out. I could move the headset any way and put the cord on either side of me. These I have to wear them one way only. But that’s not a big deal tbh. I like the cord to dangle on my RIGHT side. But it is on the left and has to cross over me. But whatever. I can work on solving that some other time.I totally didn’t realize the RGB colors changing on the sides, pretty neat. Mic and sound are nice. People are not complaining about not hearing me etc. Very nice. I’ve had issues with discord in the past but no issues atm. (Not sure if it was headset related at all).I may want to get a stand for them or something just because. Very happy with my purchase so far! (Also thanks to the company for shipping it so fast! )

  113. I love this headset I was in the market for a bargain set for work and this one fit the bill not only is comfortable on the ears it has excellent sound and mic quality The cord had a mute that comes in handy as well as you can turn the lights off and on with that switch as well I highly recommend this head set the only thing I could possible recommend is a way to drown out background noise, Other than that I am overly satisfied with this headset

    My first version of the Kraken headset from Razer was the Kraken 7.1 V2 – got it back in 2016-2017ish, it died in January 2022 via short in the wire. Looking at newer version’s of the Kraken, this one stood out – this headset had the same qualities that my old headset had, but with newer hardware. I would have grabbed the newest Kraken V3 headset but it did not have the Retractable Mic that I love to have. I bought a BlackShark X, and couldn’t stand the mic being in my eye sight when gaming.I did have to install the new Synaps v3 for this headset, but that is fine. Wish Razer would have supported the older Kraken headset (Which used Synaps v2 to use) with Synaps v3, but the world isn’t prefect…Back to the headsets.PROS: Wired (because battery life is a joke), 7.1 surround sound, THX Spatial DAC (button on the headset), Lights up with RGB Razer Chroma, base boost (cause I love to rock out with music, while also having my head shake when something blows up in games), Ear cups are oval, and big (so it can fit my big pointy ears), with memory foam, and cool gel cushion. The headset uses metal (aluminum & steel frame) to connect the ear cups to the headband (which I love, plastic tends to break easily). Also it has the retractable mic (don’t have to worry is I take the mic off the headset cause it’s still attached).CONS: Since I love the Kraken 7.1 V2 headset since it didn’t have any controls connected to it in any way, The Kraken Ultimate does, which it has a THX enable/disable button, and a volume control (The mute mic button is on the mic it self, which isn’t a con for me), basically I’m not a fan of controls connected to the headset, but this isn’t a con per say, more like a pet peeve of mine. The headset is also 1.8 oz heavier than the Kraken 7.1 V2… Also I had to configure the mic’s audio settings, because people could hear the sound coming from my headset cause I leave the mic retracted into the headset, had to turn the mic’s audio level to 30 – over time it got better, and I have the volume up to 60ish, give or take – just got to get the settings right.On another note, the headset is Discord certified, which I could care less, but it does bring good audio quality on Discord when you have the settings selected to use on Discord.I would have grabbed the Kraken X, or Kraken V3 – or even grabbed another Kraken 7.1 V2 (But I couldn’t find any except now at GameStop but in a different color) – I got this headset, and I’m loving it. Had no real issues, except the one’s listed in the CONS… Razer, for the next Kraken headset, please bring back the Retractable Mic, I prefer it over detachable/non-detachable mic…

  115. The headset in itself was good, the comfort was decent and I liked the style. However, when I plugged it in to my PC, I noticed some misleading things.A. It does not glow as it states it does. In the photo, it shows the red trim as the part that glows. Reality is, those red bits are just plastic.B. The sound quality and volume are questionable, and not as high quality as stated in the product description.C. The comfort was alright, although they are a tad on the small side for myself at least!

  116. Top comfort and good sound – put up against a pair AKGs. Only shame and reason of immediate return, is the severe sound bleeding; to the point that even on lowest volumes, noise inside the headphones is audible to people around me.

  117. I had the previous model (stereo, used a USB for lights only, headphone/headset jack for the rest). This is a USB only VIRTUAL surround headset. Very comfortable and lightweight, so it is great for longer video meetings, streaming, or gaming.The virtual surround works very well, and the microphone is extremely clear (I have had no issues with voice or video chatting). The software link in the instructions and on the box were both outdated. However, I messaged the seller, and they sent the link to download the software. It is not necessary for the headset to function, but it does add some very fun features for the unit (a voice changer, equalizer, etc).The lights are a great touch. The control buttons (for lights, mic mute, and volume up/down) has a nice feel to it. There is an indicator light that changes color to indicate when the mic is on (blue) or muted (red). The volume control will adjust the PC’s volume level, but at least with Windows 10, if you unplug the headset, the volume will return to whatever level you had for your PC’s speakers prior to plugging in the headset.One of the best things about the headset? Even with all the added features and functions over the last model, they were less expensive. I would absolutely recommend this unit to anyone looking for a headset.

  118. This headset is simply fantastic. The only minor thing is the 2 steel bars at the top, when a certain bass tone hits, they vibrate. But other than that, the sound quality is incredible, the mic is amazing, the clarity without having to tweek it is absolutely outstanding. The build quality is brilliant and they are light enough to not annoy you at all, you can wear them for hours without getting hot of uncomfortable!

  119. It is really good and I find 7.1 surround sound quite useful and nice in games but it is not really necessary, the noise cancellation is decent because if you have loud pc’s or consoles it can get rid of the sound when wearing it and it isn’t to an extent when someone is talking around you or calling you so you can hear them but it will not be as clear without the headset, it comfortable and I can wear it for long periods of time without getting uncomfortable but on a really hot day it can get quite warm, the mic though can only move up and down but I find it quite nice that you can flip it to turn it on and off but the mic quality isn’t that good but you can connect an external mic to it with an adaptor, NOTE: you have to use the USB type A adaptor to get the 7.1 surround and not the 3.5mm jack

  120. I wear headphones all day for work, 9 hours a day. The headphones I had purchases previously from Amazon were pinching my head and giving me headaches. THESE tho!! They float on my head; I am prone to migraines and headaches and they are so comfortable. The sound quality is excellent. On phone calls, I couldn’t ask for better sound or connection. I was forewarned about the blue light on the mic but I was not deterred. If you feel like this is a deal breaker, this is how I dealt with it: I covered the blue light with waterproof liquid eyeliner 😀 problem solved. I do not regret this purchase and I do not think you will!

  121. This headphones are the best I have tried wired. I needed them to listen my online studies and they work perfectly for me and doesn’t hurt because they are very confortable.

  122. This headphones are the best I have tried wired. I needed them to listen my online studies and they work perfectly for me and doesn’t hurt because they are very confortable.

  123. I was using a wired headset that hurt my ears and kept me tethered to my desk, and went on the hunt for an inexpensive replacement that would alleviate both of those issues. These are perfect! I initially connected them to my laptop via Bluetooth, but my company utilizes Microsoft Teams which screws up the connection of Bluetooth audio devices. I was a little sad at first, thinking I may have to return them, but then I just connected them using the wireless dongle and no more issues! (It was Teams though, not the headset that was the problem)They sound good, are super comfortable, outside noise cancelling is pretty decent (but that wasn’t something I really needed), and they’re easy to just turn on and go after they’ve been set up. The only thing I don’t particularly like is when you hit the mute button, they play “microphone on” or “microphone off” and it cuts out all other noise for a few seconds. If it could be a much quicker on/off notification that doesn’t mute the audio, I’d definitely utilize that functionality. No big deal – they were cheap and I can run to my kitchen (even the mailbox!) and not miss a thing!Oh also I’ve been using them 5 days a week, eight hours a day, for the last 5 weeks and they’re still going strong.

  124. These qork brilliantly. Great sound and look lovely blue and glowing. Found them quite big but still love them!

  125. I am not a purist, but if you are you may criticise these for their sound, but for me, it is very good, you get stereo, the quality is, in my opinion, fantastic, the headset fits relatively well, as there is padding, so I did not feel any uncomfortable feeling or any discomfort wearing these for a long time, the only issue I have is that if you move your head the headset has a tendency to slip off, not sure why they do that, otherwise, a nice headset.There are some issues, you get a USB to enable you to connect to devices, I was able to plug it into my laptop and it connected almost immediately, however, we tried it on the Xbox, but it would not connect, though you can use the wires to connect to the hand controller, you cannot connect to your iPhone, though possibly to other makes.This USB connector is the only way you can connect wirelessly, there is no place to store this, if it gets lost or misplaced then you have no wireless connection, surely, they could have made a little slot on the headset to store this, or better still incorporated the Bluetooth in the headset. Also, for the price asked you get a worthless thin cloth bag, it does not close and will tear very easily, cutting corners like this detracts from the quality of this headset.So, would I buy this headset? the answer is probably yes, as it has lots of good features and is well made, just let down by the above points, so worth getting, especially as the price will probably fall a bit more, so overall four stars for this headset.

  126. It has been a bit of an adjustment for me using these coming from on the ear headphones where I could clearly hear myself speaking to a now more muted sound to the point where I don’t always know if the mic is working – it is!Firstly, this was just plug n play for me on Windows 11, I just powered on the headphones, and they connected without me having to sync them – which is just a button press. The headphones are charged up on a USB-C cable (supplied). A few hours charge and they easily last my game time and more. When not in use I have them connected to the computer to keep them charged up.The big cups fit nicely over the ears with no pressure on contact points. They are comfortable to wear for hours at a time. Sounds are clear and concise with some directional hearing enabled (depends on game). You need to be mindful that when you are in a game with these on, you can’t really hear much of what is going on externally, so expect someone to be angry with you when you don’t hear them calling to you!The mic switches on and off with the raising or lowering of the mic boom arm and you get a positive click sound as it switches. There is a volume control wheel on the headphones. Adjacent to this is a wheel for game chat balance. However, I have yet to hear this working and I often get chat coming through that it is overpowering game audio. I end up having to adjust this in-game. I will give this the benefit of the doubt as the successful function of this when could be dependant on the game and how they stream the chat.These are a good set of gaming headphones, but I am a little doubtful on value for money. These are currently selling at £101 and I have had similar performance headphones around the £80 price bracket.

  127. There’s a lot to like about these headphones from JBL. They’re lovely in the flesh, the materials and feel is very high quality – really like the braided connectors from the band to the earpieces, the thick padding on the over-ear covers and the headband, all the switches are responsive and solid.The come with nice braided cables for using a 3.5mm headphone jack or a USB wired connection – but have a separate USB dongle which unlocks the true wireless features of the headphones. Once turned on, the logos on the earpieces light up and another really nice touch is that the microphone auto-mutes with a click when it’s moved into the vertical position and this is shown with a red LED on the stalk – this is super handy in use, big fan.Sound quality is top-notch, just can’t fault it and there’s absolutely no noticeable latency when used wirelessly. These sadly aren’t active noise-cancelling headphones but being full over-ear design they do a pretty good job at blocking out ambient noise.I think for the cost I would be very very happy with these headphones – if they had only included Bluetooth. As it is they’re very solid wireless headphones but frustrating that they require the use of a separate USB dongle, meaning that you can’t use them with other non-USB devices unless you use the wired approach.

  128. The quality of these headphones are great 👍 👌 🙌 👏

    Absolutely love these headphones 100% only problem is when you test the mic it doesn’t show up but the mic DOES work.I wish I could use these at work for the Avaya Phones. Would love to have it as an accommodation headset.

  131. High quality product at a reasonable price

  132. Purchased for my 11year old son for use on his PS4. This is the second pair he has had the first pair lasted a year but that was just as he managed to snap the plug in connector- god knows how! These are very strong headphones as we usually find he goes through a lot of sets. The sound quality is good and he doesn’t seem to hear me in the background trying to talk lol.

  133. Very perfect headset. Mike is qood u hear good quality of sound not much noise and you can wear for long timeNo heating issue and no drivers just plug as USB or 3.5mm jack. U can use for PC also for mobileBudget friendly happy on this value of product

  134. Not a bad headset at all but does become uncomfortable after a few hours as they do not completely cover each ear but sit on top of each one

    it’s good trust me but my wire bent to the left to fast and now its broken but overall it was a good headset with a great mic but I’m not sure about wire

  136. Bought these based on the reviews, I have to carry out webinar and other online teaching and living in a noisy area I needed a headset that would be benficial due to the environment, as the equivalent bose are 10 times the cost (and bettert quality) I couldn’t justify this as work are not paying towards the cost. I’m blown away with the comfort and usability, they do not feel cheap, they are robust and reliable. And excellent value for money.

  137. Very goos high quality

  138. great set of headphones for gaming sound is 10 out of 10..very comfy..mic very clear must buy

  139. I do not use the speaker yet so I can’t rate it. Headphones are good quality for the sound as I hear sounds I didn’t before with old ear type headphone which hurt my ears. These have good Cushions so they are much better. I pull down the extensions 1 inch on each side so they fit my average size head better. They fit real tight and cancel out a lot of sounds. They could be a little looser as they are real tight; but will maybe loosen up after use. They light up green on the sides; but the user doesn’t see it; other people may. This was shipped real fast as bought new. I couldn’t access the website to get the extended warranty ? I use these for youtube videos and songs; so they are excellent for that. Made in China, but maybe are hard to find made in US? Overall I am well satisfied with them !

  140. Loud enough, awesome sound quality.

  141. Great value for teenage gamers

  142. Amazing quality and amazing feed back from this item no problems

  143. This is a really good headset for the money. Not just in terms of gaming, but it is also great to use while listening to music or watching movies/youtube. You get more features on this than other branded headsets such as the in-line equalizer button that has 3 settings – movie, gaming and music which switches up your listening experience depending on what you are doing. I mostly use the gaming option since it not only sounds good while gaming but also watching or listening to music. You also get the optional 7.1 surround sound, which, again, is not available on a lot of branded headsets. Lastly the microphone is stellar, whether you are recording a review video on youtube or speaking with people online, your voice is crisp, clear and no other background noise will be picked up. Definitely recommend to those who are looking for a great budget all ’rounder headset.

  144. The sound is fine for gaming, watching videos, and listening to music, but not really for making music since there’s an EQ bias but I really shouldn’t expect anything more from headphones made for gaming and not music production. I suppose if I wanted that, I could’ve bought studio-grade headphones with no EQ bias.Honestly, the headset works fine, the only problems I have with it are the fact that the low battery alert, mic off alert, and really any sound effect ducks the audio I’m currently listening to. Why couldn’t it just be a beeping noise like every other wireless headset? Also, for some reason the power button also functions as a pause/play button, which is really annoying when I have paused media like a YouTube video and it plays it again when I turn off my headset and I come back to my PC and have to find where I left off.One final issue is that for some reason, the panning is incorrect, i.e. sounds that are supposed to come out of the left ear come out of the right, and vice-versa. I’m not sure why this happens, maybe the speakers were installed in the opposite sides that they were supposed to, but I don’t know.These are really simple problems that can easily be fixed in the next iteration of this product, I presume.Other than that, it’s a good headset. Not great, certainly not perfect, but not bad either. Just, good.Which honestly for the price I purchased these for is okay and completely acceptable.

  145. Good value for money

  146. Not the best, even with a JBL branding feels less than any cheap Chinese offering. Spend the extra on a Hyper X, which I also have.

  147. The media could not be loaded.  Sorry for long review but it’s detailed and honest and will absolutely help with your decision.This headset is designed for GAMING and they do just that and more, I GURANTEE you will be beyond happy with this product. ((Id like to say I’ve owned and used these almost everyday for 5 and half months)) If you’ve never owned a Razer product I promise they won’t disappoint you, you should see what your missing out on. Plus 2 year warranty and awesome customer support. I LOVE this headset and I’ve owned turtle beaches, Astro a-10’s, and I’ve tried arctic steelseries 5. Blackshark V2x is simply a better product and you should buy them.1.) SOUND QUALITY: The 50mm triforce drivers should make this headset more and $50-60. With frequency range of 12hz – 28hz you get the most dynamic sound range which is crisp, clean, and defined, plus the triforce technology that no other headset has..Most headsets in the price range are usually 40mm drivers and 20hz-20hz with neodymium magnets which is basic and nothing new. The bass hits HARD and crisp with mids and treble being very clear and loud. not a muddy/staticky sound of all three combined. They’ve got a super wide range of volume,you can just keep turning and turning the volume nob until they are so loud but still crystal clear audio.  2.)COMFORT AND BUILD QUALITY: They are very lightweight and super easy to wear for longgg periods of time. The overall quality and feel of the headset is sturdy thick plastic, not cheap creeking plastic, with metal or aluminum adjustment sliders. The ear cushions and very soft leathery material and stays nice and firm, with the material quality being superb, so after months of use you won’t have flat, hard earpads. The actual size of the ear cups and awesome not to small to here the crush the tops of your ears they go completely around them for nice comfortable seal on the sides of your head with plenty of room for your ears. This the kind of headset that you will forget you have on. They got the perfect clamping force to stay put and not feel like it’s crushing you, the memory foam keeps them comfortable and in place. The headband is nice and cushioned with leathery material. When it comes to adjusting it on your head it has a dirtent type of adjustment functionality. You can get precise adjustment perfect for you head. It’s not one singular piece to move it slides and 2 diffrent parts on left and right side to get the PERFECT position you like, with ear cups being able to swivel to help even more to seal around your ears and countour of your head. 3.) NOISE CANCELLATION: Razer did a very good job with noise cancellation because of the memory foam ear cups that get a good seal on side of your head as I said above. My mom hates it because she can’t yell at me from living room when I have them on. They make for awesome immersive experience, only being able to hear the sweet sounds of gaming,with no background outside noise. The memory foam ear pads really help keep outside noise out. I’m assuming if they were some fabric material sound would seep through. 4.)MICROPHONE QUALITY: I’ve gotten multiple compliments about the clarity of the mic, always asking what mic I have and their surprised by the answer. It’s pretty damn impressive for this headset in this price range, the mic is just as good as some “streamer mics”. I Never have problems with echoes or like static background noise. It’s literally dead quiet until you speak and it only picks up your voice. We all know if you have a ceiling fan on it can be heard when you talk. This mic doesn’t pick up that sound literally just your voice and you don’t need to have the mic super close to your mouth, can have it decently away and you’ll still sound loud and clear on the other end. Like I said it’s pretty damn impressive for the price of this headset. 5.) CONS I DONT LIKE: •Microphone doesn’t flip up(blackshark V2 has removable mic).•The cord is a rubbery material and no matter what it never seems to straighten out completely, braided cord would be better.•The headset cable is not removable, so if you break it the headset is toast. The cable is stupid long so it won’t get caught on something a rip/tear. Perfect length and stays out of your way.

  148. Went from razer to this and am not looking back.Pros1. They’re wireless and light. That’s a winning combo for me. It makes it convenient if you have to get up.2. The battery life is good. I usually just leave it on and they still run fine after. Haven’t charged it in awhile.The cons.1. Wonky controls. All buttons are lined up and feel the same so you’ll end up taking them off to see what you’re doing. Usually the volume control is a wheel you spin, these uses the “+ and -” controls. If you have it set to how you want or gotten used to this, it shouldn’t be an issue.For the price, it’s hard to beat.

  149. Sound quality is very low and it’s a very cheap thing but not worth what I paid

  150. Brother wanted this product.Light feel and gets job done. Great for gaming, competitively priced.

  151. Very good 👍

  152. So super comfy headset. I recently (past year) got glasses and was struggling to find a headset that worked with that. My previous headset was amazing, but was beyond uncomfortable with the glasses.Replaced it with these and I frequently forget I’m wearing them, come to the issue I eventually ran into.One bad thing, short wire, I stood up a bunch and eventually tried walking away as I forgot I was wearing em’… eventually bent the usb plug to a point where the headset no longer worked.However was still under warranty and had an amazingly nice exchange with customer support and they quickly replaced the headset with a new pair that arrived within days of the entire exchange, it was very nice and the main reason I’m doing this review now, I normally have a rough time when it comes any kind of support. But all they asked me to do was take a picture of the damage and that was it.Now I will admit, sound quality. It’s good for the price, not the greatest but it’s fine because they are beyond comfy, I’d rather have that on a personal level.I’d say 4.3 out of 5 or rather 8/10 but that isn’t exactly a choice.

    I would have given 5 stars but after dropping it one time it broke. Maybe its just my luck. But besides that. Works great and good value for money.

  154. this product is perfect high grade for low cost you cant ASK FOR ANYTHING BETTER

  155. You couldn’t get a better one for this price, is confortável enough for a few hours of gaming, plus it has good sound quality. The downside is the volume control not controlling the volume on windows, but rather on the phones itself with no indication on how loud / quiet it is. But rather than that, I can recommend this for a budget gaming hs

  156. Bottom line — if you’re looking for an affordable headset that gets it done, this is a good option.I spend all day in work meetings and needed something that would deliver good sound to me and make me easy for others to understand me.These headphones are very comfortable, sound great, and it was easy to get the mic dialed in just right. The inline controls could stand to be better — the mute switch for the mic is too small as is the volume wheel and it’s too easy to hit either of them. But for this price point you need to have realistic expectations.Would be nice to be able to switch off the LED lights since they’re not quite the ticket for my application. However, these are advertised as a gaming set, they make it clear that the headphones have the lights, so there’s no misrepresentation.

  157. I like these a lot. Take the cons with a grain of salt. No where near negative enough for me to return them.Keep in mind these are noise isolating, not canceling. Noise isolation when compared to Audio Technica is 3 out of 5 stars. Good enough for use at home. But in a noisy environment I do not think it’s sufficient.Pros:Build qualityComfort (have a huge noggin, larger ears)Sound it top notch, bass is not over powering, mids-easily picked out and highs crispNo drivers for basic functionality under Windows 10Great microphone qualityCons:Microphone feels flimsyNo audible tone when microphone mutes and unmutesVolume dial is not connected with USB or Wireless volume in the operating systemHeadphones auto power off with a little aggressively, not sure what the timeout is, but seems to be between 5-10 minutes without audio playing

    I have been really impressed with these, being a professional producer I am fairly picky on the sound quality and these live up to my standards! The only flaw I can find with the design is the mic position is fixed, but that doesn’t matter to me that much. I would highly recommend these!

  159. Using the headset to play and communicate on the playstation. Honestly the sound quality is great tremble and bass is balanced as for the microphone it’s clear and captures the voice really well a lot of clarity in speaking the only thing I dislike is when you have eyeglasses, the earmuffs tends to clamp down on your head pushing the arms of the glasses into you and over time it starts to feel uncomfortable. Even with the headband adjustment it’ll slide off for me overall the headset is not flimsy and feels sturdy. I’d recommend to children if your kids are looking for a headset to use on consoles.

  160. These headphones are good for gaming and you can connect them into your sound card with 3.5mm or into your computer with usb.I run the 3.5mm into my sound blaster card and they sound brilliant for the money, I don’t run the usb with it so the rgb lights are off, the volume control is very nice and easy to use and provides a lot of adjustment.Overall these are a very nice and easy to use and they don’t break the bank.You will not be disappointed

  161. I was slightly hesitant of buying headphones at such a low price but thought I’d take a chance. I’m glad I did! Hard wired so no hassle of having to charge them. I have had them a couple of weeks now and the sound has improved the more I use them. Very pleased with them. Simple programming personalising them on the pc what’s not to like. Great product great price.

  162. My daughter and I went shopping on Amazon for headset/mic combo for her online Spainish class.It worked out perfectly when I asked how her first recorded assignment went. Definitely canceled the noise coming from my neighbor’s sudden home remodeling project next door. Comfortable, soft padding, easy setup and looks nice. She uses a Mac, no issues.It makes a parent’s job easier too.Good quality and inexpensive.

  163. I’ve always found that things created for gamers tend to be better than things created for offices. Chairs are more comfortable, keyboards more responsive, and this headset has flawless sound quality. Also nice and comfy, when I was spending six hours in a row on calls. Cheaper than the office ones too!Now, I have quite a big head… I’m okay with that. My biggest fear was that they would be too tight (I’ve had headsets before which have caused headaches for this reason) but because the frame is primarily metal it was easily bent to the right width for me! Pliers may be handy for some, with a bit of soft cloth to avoid damaging the finish.

  164. I like these and use them constantly… on and off for over 12 hours a day. For normal use (telecom) they are great. But for music or loud gaming I find the distortion distracting and I simply can’t use them to play.If you don’t need it loud, they are great. Comfortable, weight is reasonable, noise canceling is as good passive cancelation as I have personally used, though my experience is not broad (maybe 4 headsets that were noise-cancelers). For my main use, voice coms, they are excellent. But I took away a star for lack of versatility overall, and 2 stars for lack of high-volume support.

  165. Comfortable to wear, blocks out noises in the background. Would purchase again!

  166. What I liked about the headphones is they are good for my games. If there is bass or low tones, the headphones feel like they shake a bit. However the headphones are only OK when cancelling noise. I can still hear some vehicles drive by outside. It is my own fault for not reading the description carefully. But what I do not like about the headphones is that they need a USB attachment and you have to plug it in for the lights. The USB thats attached to it as a cord is really short. But over all I like them

  167. I can hear and talk normally, no issue

  168. Amazing sound quality, both audio in and out. I admit, I wasn’t expecting much for the price, I thought I’d use these as a backup for all of my other headphones. Wrong. Moving to the front of the pack. Big time surprise! First, answered a phone call on my Android phone. Without prompting, the caller told me that my voice was clearer than he’d ever heard – and his voice was extremely clear and bright. That’s one. Next, music. Played jazz, classical and classic rock. I’m picky about this and was not at all disappointed. Fabulous highs, fabulous lows. Mid-range was great. That was test 2. On to #3: Windows PC – YouTube playback was very clear – both music playback and podcasts. And 4: Playstation – very clear. No static, nothing…perfect. Even the opening PS theme music sounds better with better lows and highs. It just sounds richer. In game, it seems like I can hear more now – up down, left right, behind left/right, etc. Grass tussling. Xbox: haven’t tested on this yet.Moving on: there is a volume control on the headphone cable – this works great and is easy to use; in fact, the entire control is nicely laid out with the mic control on the front of the tiny device for on/off switching (doesn’t affect volume control).Mic attachment: easy to maneuver and keep in desired location as well as moving completely out of the way by just bending up.Comfort: I’m retired so I have lots of time and can sometimes use my headphones for hours and hours at a time – the entire day(s) and by the end of the session, my ears (from my other headphones) would be numb or hurt. Not with these. The SENZER SG500 headphones are very comfortable and are easy on the ears with no stress – I also tried to jumping up and down, turning my head sideways quickly and such. The headphones were fine – no falling sideways. That said, they aren’t tight fitting. I don’t understand how it’s designed to be like this but who cares, they work great, are sturdy and good quality!All in all, I’ve already mentioned these to my audio/gamer friends. As for myself, I’m going to order another set as a backup. Yup, they’re that good.

  169. I’m not really an audiophile, but I recently picked these up for half-price, and I’ve been liking these so far. The setup is pretty easy, and using the drivers makes the surround sound really pop in gaming like in League of Legends or Genshin Impact, which utilizes the 7.1 surround sound pretty well. The headphones do time out if you aren’t using them, but holding the power button turns them on instantly. The only cons are that there is no RGB lighting, and they don’t pair to iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth so if you’re planning on using them without the adapter, you won’t be able to. Honestly so far so good, it’s pretty good for the price (49$ on sale) and works for an entry-level headset that’s wireless and does everything you need it to do.

  170. This was an economy purchase. Turned out to be a fantastic replacement for my work at work (MSTeams) headset. Good sound quality with TOUGH CORDS connecting the USB to the headset. (Not those flimsy little wires with connections that fail after a few months of normal use.) Hand held control panel to control volume for both ears and mic. (Also has a button to turn on the LEDs. Make you ‘office’ cool.)Great for work, Great for Gaming. (If you like a good wired headset) Better than a Logic Tec headset.

  171. I am currently working from home on the phone for the first time. Didn’t want to spend a lot of money on my first headset but needed some quality. Happy with the choice I made. I’d like a smaller set with a little more range but this one does the trick until I feel like spending $80+ I get a good 20ft through a wall with good sound.

  172. For the price, this headset is one of the best budget options on the market. Super comfy with a lot of features that work well in gaming environments. The lighting is a unique design, and the EQ and surround sound make playing games more immersive and provide more information to the player, specifically in the “Game” EQ mode.

  173. Never truly bought gaming headphones outside SONY products. But I wasn’t going to settle just for instantly….so after searching for about quite some time now.Roughly 3 years later, I officially stepped out my comfort zone while reading a TON OF REVIEWS. I really enjoyed these type of headphones. The only thing I can’t seem to figure out is how to get my head phones to light up, sadly😭😭 Unsure if anyone can give me some pro tips! That be great!Other than that, I love the headphones!!

  174. These headphones are still working after 3 years of extensive use. Very good economic headphones when on sale, and no issues wearing it with glasses. Audio quality is good for both gaming and music listening, although the bass is a bit on the lower side. Lightweight as well.Main issue – Microphone is very sensitive, and can pick up audio from the headphones itself.The paint on the foam padding also started to strip off after 2.5 years of use.

  175. If your a critical listener, these will be a bit of a chore to EQ. If your a gamer looking for a cheap set of cans with surprisingly good bass, these are for you.****Mobile Devices****Devices used: HTC One and LG ThinqV60Q.These cans require a really agressive “smiley face”.After break-in, I finally found the sweet spot, however I ended up hitting the limiters from all the EQing. I acheived a pretty good sound but greatly lacking in volume. A headphone amplifier can retify the volume issue, causing these cans to really wake up.***PC***YMMV depending on your audio card but they were easier to fine tune versus mobile. I still used a headphone amp so I could have the extra headroom in case I desired more volume. Phone calls were just fine and nobody complained about my voice.***PS4***Your at the whim of the sound designers but like I said earlier, if your not critically listening then these will work just fine. Just like phone calls, nobody ever complained about my voice during party/game chat.****Comfort***The cushion noise cancels pretty well and are comfortable for long sessions. They are a little heavy and the adjustment arms can be very fickle. A very poor design IMO but doable if you don’t mind fidding with them every time you put them on.**Bass**LIike I said, and what others have mentioned, the bass is actually astonishing. The have more SPL than LFE extension but certainly get the job done if your a non-critical bass head. They will literally rumble your head and ears with proper amplification.***Conclusion***Astonishing bass with allot of mids and not allot highs and plain/straightforward sound stage.2 weeks ago they finally gave up the ghost. When you plug them up, the sound is out of phase and no amount of wire finessing rectified the issue. I didn’t abuse them or anything during my ownership so I was a bit disappointed. From a physical standpoint they feel very durable, don’t feel cheap and have a, thick, long, cloth thread shielded cable.Not too shabby for a $20+ pair of gaming cans. You can do allot worse spending more money.Would I buy them again? Personally they wouldn’t be my first choice but if I were in a bind and in absolute need of a gaming headset to toss around………they’ll suffice.

  176. The sound quality (both playback and recording) is fine, however I find the earmuff portion of the headset to be a bit too small, as it does not fit around my entire ear (and I don’t have particularly large ears afaik.) This probably wouldn’t be a huge issue for most people, but if you have earrings it might be a bit uncomfortable.

  177. with most headphones I’ve used you can barely hear when it’s plugged into Xbox, but these are so clear that I was mesmerized for hot minute and I just sat and Enjoyed the quality, I greatly recommend these for any kind of gaming and its now my main headset for PC, PS, and Xbox

  178. I was NOT expecting it to require a dedicated USB dongle. Although it likely uses a Bluetooth signal it is proprietary through the included USB Dongle. You can’t just pair it up with your existing Bluetooth and will need to have a open USB port (Type A) to plug it into.However, I kind of like this approach as the dongle loads as a HID (human interface device). So for me, that means I don’t have to turn on my Bluetooth. From a computer standpoint this has some marked performance improvement.So it worked for me, and I considered taking away a star for this but decided not to.One thing that is good is you can use it wired. But this can be complicated if you don’t have a combined stereo and mic port (4 segment plug). My computer has these separate which requires you get the proper adapter cable so it “Y” connects to the Speaker and Mic jacks. But again, I like the dongle wireless connection.Sound is fantastic, Full and Rich.Mic is outstanding, very directional so you don’t pic up a lot of stray noises and what people hear on the other end is simply great quality.Very cushy headset, comfortable but likely be a little hot on a hot day. That is something that is typical of any headphone… but overall these are super comfortable.The mic is removable, just unplugs from the headset or you can mute the mic with a button on the headset. Both are great features.I used them for 3 hours with zero issues, not sure how long the battery will last as this was as long as I needed. However if the battery is low you can always plug them in (standard usb cord) and charge them while you wear them.I was disappointed in the fact that you can’t USB cord connect the speakers/mic. Seemed something they should have done… Maybe I will deduct a star.But I am very happy with them for what I use them for, and would recommend them to others. Just need to understand the limitations… and that should be clearer in sales promotions too.
