  1. right to start i honestly don’t see what all the reviews slating this are for, after some minor adjustments to the placing of the mic my online friends can hear me fine with my normal speaking tone with no problems. fit’s snuggly to my ear and has 3 sizes of ear bud (i find the middle size perfect)bit of advice if you do buy this product is to have the mic pressed against your cheek and you’ll have no problems at all.overall this is actually a really good product, design is slick. my only gripe with it is the cable that connects to the controller, it feels really delicate and the jack is sensative to any slight pull and produces a crackling sound, if this was wireless then it would have got a 5 star but as it is i’m giving it a 4*

  2. FIrst off, this is a great value for the money, its hands-down a very solid headset. I have some audiophile headsets and high end wired and wireless headsets, so I have been running the Stinger’s through some gaming and music to compare. I purchased these because we have the Cloud I’s and the Cloud II’s in our home and I have had them for several years and they still look like new, so I knew that it would be comfortable and the sound signature would be tuned fairly well. These are a little more bass heavy in a standard gaming setup w/o a amp or Astro mixamp. The lows are very good, mids are decent, and the highs are good. Basically, the 53mm drives from the Clouds have been placed in these as 50 mm drivers because the only thing i can tell on audible testing is that the mids are clearer on my Cloud II’s for gaming and music. If you use a mixamp then that is when you will not be able to tell the difference between Cloud I’s or II’s. I use these with a mixamp TR and they are very comfortable. I have large ears and these completely cover them while also providing decent noise cancellation. Something of note here regarding the noise cancellation, it is passive and is not as good as the Cloud II’s, but I feel that the Cloud I and the II clamp down a little hard on my head and the Stingers do not clamp down. The memory foam ear pads and the lightweight frame make this a headset you will hardly notice. The build quality seems very good and as for the mic, it works fine and I have had no issues for this week of use. I would sum it up as 50 bucks well spent if you are on a budget or just looking for a comfortable headset because the Stinger’s are both of those.Now a few drawbacks I see about the headset from my perspective. The mic stays attached the entire time, so that may be a negative to some. Also no built in mic monitoring that I can tell in my mic testing I have done so far. On XB1 you can setup mic monitoring within the accesories app with a newer controller model with a 3.5 mm jack and place it to an acceptable range. On PS4 testing it is pretty much no mic monitoring, but for 50 bucks I will say that everything all works with no glaring issues and again it is mixamp friendly which is super attractive. I would definitely take these over my A40 TR’s just on the fact of comfort alone, not to mention the price. I hope that Kingston ultimately takes this exact Stinger build and makes it into a Stinger II with some higher level build quality and even wireless, that would be the best gaming headset around.TLDR; The Stinger is a super comfy, mixamp friendly headset that sounds really close to its big brother the Cloud I and II’s. Your going to be hard pressed to spend 50 bucks and find a better headset. I have compared many more expensive headsets to these and sound and comfort wise, these are right there with those headsets.If my review of the Kingston HyperX Cloud Stinger has helped you make a decision about purchasing please give me a postive rating.

  3. I can hear a crack of a gunshot on the other side of the map but I can’t hear my wife screaming 3 feet from me. 10/10 will buy again if the wife breaks them.

  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. They were amazing headphones until they developed a short near the jack. I had to hold the wire at just the right angle for them to work. I am very disappointed with the durability of the wire given these are $100 headphones. I’ve had tougher $5 usb cables. I won’t be buying HyperX products again as this is a huge oversight in design.

  7. 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.

    Updated to 5 stars all in all this headset is great and once I got used to it, it was very comfortable. I have decided this headset does everything I need for now so I’m going to wait to order one with a mixer and more features. I’ve gotten used to the mic mute flip feature with more time and now it’s not so strange muting and adjusting volume (note: I normally adjust volume from Xbox mixer settings instead of the volume adjuster on the headset).SUMMARY: I bought the Hyperx Cloud Stinger and at this time I’m giving 4 stars, however it is most likely a 5 Star Headset I just want some time to make sure. So far I I can honestly say this headset is well worth it just keep in mind I’ve only had it for about a week! It’s very comfortable, has great sound, a great price, seems to be working great with Xbox One, and is made with quality! I don’t think you find a headset in this price range that’s better than this one and many say this headset is better than very expensive ones from what I’ve read. I may wind up getting another Hyperx Cloud headset with a Audio mixer and mute button since I’m not sure I’ll get used to moving the mic up and down to mute it as you have to do with the Stinger (I’m used to a mute button by the controller which makes it fast and simple to mute) and I would like to control volume settings without going into my Xbox audio settings or hopefully Xbox makes a simplier option to this and muting. (You don’t need the adapter with this headset for Xbox one if you have the controller with a 3.5mm jack)Long Review (Still updating and pending final product rating):COMFORT: They are very comfortable to me (I am a female and most aren’t comfortable to me and are too big but without this headset adjusted at all it fits pretty comfortably). When it’s adjusted to be larger it fits my boyfriend as well so this is a great headset for either female or male.SOUND:I’m not audio/sound wizard or professional but the sound so far is very good. I’ve mainly played Fortnite br and Destiny 2 with this headset. I’m still messing around with different games to see the difference between different noises and using the volume mixer settings on Xbox One to see what sounds best. On Xbox One I’m able to press the home button, go over to System, and then to Audio to control the headset volume, adjust headset chat mixer, or mic montitoring. This headset does have the slider on the right ear so you are able on XB1 to get all your volume levels setup and then just use the volume slider on the headset ear if it’s to loud or quiet. Now that I have messed around with it a bit more I don’t find the need to go back into the audio settings on Xbox to adjust them, I have left them at a certain level that seems to be working great. However, for me I liked having all those volume control settings next to the controller but again maybe I can get used to it. Last thing is I’m messing around with trying Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos for headphones since I read you can use these features with headphones that don’t have surround sound or do have it and as some say it makes a world of a difference… I’m still testing this out on Xbox One to see if they do make a difference with sound.MIC/PARTY CHAT: Using Xbox party chat is huge and a must for me. I use it to talk to my boyfriend who I play games with from different rooms as well as friends. The first day I got these, I connected to a party chat and instantly he stated it was making a humming or some sort of low pitched noise. He isn’t into tech issues or troubleshooting so this was very hard for me to fix or understand since only he heard this noise. The next day he said he doesn’t hear it at all but I’m still a bit concerned so I’ll be trying to join other people in a party to see if they hear anything not right. Update: it looks like this issue may have went away and was either related to being new, my boyfriends headset, and/or me being in the Xbox insider alpha program.MUTE FEATURE: The other thing that may just be something I have to get used to is the mic mute method on this headset, having to pull the mic up or down is something I feel takes more time than just pressing a mute button like I’m used to but like I said maybe I’ll get used to it. My boyfriend likes the mute method that the Stinger has more than me since he has a habit of putting up his mic even with his mic not having this feature. I think this is just a preference and dependent on if you can get used to it.OVERALL RATING: 9/10 I would recommend this headset to someone. For the price and the quality you get I don’t feel there’s a better headset you’ll find!! I hope my review helps you and if you have any questions leave a comment to this review and I’ll reply ASAP.Note: I would also greatly appreciate it if my review was helpful for you, if you could please click the “was helpful” button below. Thank you 🙂

  10. Had this product for just over 2 months and the mic stopped working- a replacement was sent out within a week of me writing my first review extremely impressed new one works perfectly very grateful for the quick response

  11. 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.

  13. I have updated this review as the previous problem with the audio randomly switching off has been resolved with a firmware update. I’m now happy to give them a solid five stars.They are super comfortable and the battery charge/swap system is great. I use a Blue Turtle mic so I can’t talk about the chat quality from these but the audio is great. I really like the way that you can mix the chat / game sounds. I’m using this with PC and PS4 Pro and have had no problems apart from the cut out.

  14. First off, the headsets are very comfortable. I could wear them all day. They sound good and all, but there’s a catch for Xbox users: you can’t use the 7.1 Surround Sound USB card. After a brief talk with the customer service (who was very nice), I found out that this piece is “incompatible” with the Xbox. It would have been nice to know that beforehand! The description says, “Compatible with PC, PS4, Xbox One, etc…” No! It does not work the same at all! The headphones will still function, but not at the same level as expected.

  15. Feel great. Look great. Now to the quality of sound. It’s not much different between a cheaper turtle beach headset. I plugged the headset via the Xbox as instructed however very quiet, not impressed. So had to avoid the amp and go via headset! Mine cracked a tad at times as well, not expected of a £200+ headset. Unfortunately I am returning them after 1 hour of use…Wouldn’t waste your money on them, I’ve now brought the previous elite version that is due to arrive, hopefully have better luck with these.

    DO NOT BUYI bought these to replace my dying ASTRO A50s Gen 3, this headset it complete rubbish, I fined tuned everything to make it as loud as possible but still no where near as loud as my A50s I have since retuned them and got a full refund.The sound quality on them is awful, when you turn the volume dial anything below 80% you will not hear anything.All the way on max volume and it sounds average at best, but again no where near as my superior Astro A50 Gen 3s.It’s such a shame I loved the look and premium feel but my god the sound is awful get the Astro A50 Gen 4s while you can. You will not be disappointed like I was when I tried using this BS headset!! I don’t understand why more gamers haven’t complained about the poor and low volume when turned to max settings?Any questions please contact me I will reply ASAP!Please please please buy the Astro A50 Gen 4s!!! These are the real winners, the sound quality is far superior, pin point accurate, very high quality audio in terms of voice chat and game audio. I cannot stress enough how amazing the A50 gen 4s are!!!!Do not bother buying this headset you’ll only regret it, seriously buy the Astro A50 Gen 4s!!!!

  17. Yeah, you read the headline correct; a cable that if lost/damaged/broken will send you on a witch hunt through realms you thought not yet existed in your mind. Steelseries decided it was a ethical business idea to create some strange usb cable offspring of a USB-Micro & USB-Mini… The result is something you will not find anywhere, not even on Steelseries’ website; as it is SOLD OUT. ($10 for cable, $10 more for shipping of said cable) The only reasonable conclusion I have come to is that the company Steelseries wanted to make an extra buck and design their own cable. Without this thin, easily breakable cable; the headset is rendered useless. Good luck finding a replacement anywhere, I found my own way but I dare not reveal that here lol. Other than that, the headset is amazing; 9/10. (I also have the GameDAC with it for PC, it’s also amazing)

  18. Bought these for a xmas gift for my 8 year old who is a fortnite fanatic. Tested them out last night and he is going to love them… the lights make them xtra cool. He is going to be over the moon.

  19. Price:At the time of my order 23 November 2018 £15.29Cheep didn’t expect much for the price. However I now feel it was under-priced total BargenPostage:Free shipping on amazonPackaging:The box is Simple, clean and shows details needed but not over the topNot wasting plastic simple small bag inside the box. No extra bubble wrap or polystyrene happy with that. No damage on the headphones so they were protected wellFunction:Sound is very good not the best in the world however these are in the top 5 that I have used. So im very surprised with the sound quality.Microphone seams fine sound is good not tested it to much.Leds work when plugged into a usb port only so if you want that and your a console user bare that in mined but the jack plug will fit anything reallySet up: plug and playlooks: black finish on plastic sides and mic. Matt black on head band. They look more expensive then they are.with the blue leds looks ok though never understood why they are there cant see them when wearing them.With the lights off still looks goodComfort:After using them for a few hours didn’t notice they were on. Soft grip on you head. The headband has a foam inlay making it nice and soft with not pressure pointsAll in all there good would recommendPrice: 5/5Packaging: 5/5Function: 4/5Set up:5/5Looks : 4/5Comfort:5/5In total 28/30 very happy with the product. Thanks for my order

  20. Re revised review.Kraken Tournament EditionXbox one ps4 wii u and pc tested.Nice clear speech bothwaysGood volumes nice and loud.No distortion when you crank up your fav shooter and nice quality on adventure games.The THX dongle for pc (does work on ps4 as a amped headphone) so a little louder than just plugging in the controller, although that’s loud anyway.Good all rounder tested with dolby atmos and worked a treat on xbox and Netflix atmos supported movies.Many times in online multiplayer shooters I have spun round and killed players because this headset allowed me to hear them coming. Always a plus.Comfort.Light, comfy cool gel earphones, glasses wearers these are excellent to, over head band you forget is there no over sweat issues either.Durability these will last as long as you look after them, a lot of metals in the build quality, shame the cable isn’t removable incase the wire was ever damaged but not an issue here.On pc you may find the mic doesn’t work when you plug in your USB THX dongle,Please install razers synapse software to control the headsets volumes and features and all is perfect.Hope that’s helps, anyone that reads my reviews know I’m harsh on items and know what I’m on about, I’ve been in the electronics game years and know quality wise what’s good.These are good. I give overall 8/10 as always room for improvement. A good solid buy.

  22. 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.

  23. *I need to update this review to provide some perspective. I recently purchased the Audeze Mobius to see what all the fuss was about, and compare to the Cloud Mix. Well, it was very close, but where I preferred the Cloud Mix is a punchier bass and a more fun sound in general. Think ‘Michael Bay movie’ which is probably the best way to describe the Cloud Mix audio. It’s incredible that these 40mm drivers can produce such volume and go toe-to-toe with the 100mm drivers found inside the Mobius. The main difference being the Audeze offer 3D surround tech, which was insufficient to dissuade me from sticking to the Cloud Mix. It helps they are half the price of course, but they truly are astounding when I consider other premium headsets I have used.Being a hybrid headset you might assume ‘jack of all trades, master of none’. You would be very mistaken to assume that, the audio performance in particular is stellar, and perfectly suited for gaming, movies and music. There is no obvious weakness.I just need to gush about the Hyper X Cloud Mix because it feels like a long time coming: why didn’t I try Hyper X sooner? Onto the specifics, comfort and build is excellent across the board. Extremely lightweight (265g with mic attached) and I can’t say I agree with the criticisms over clamping force being excessive. With plush ear cushions, I can’t see how even larger heads would have any issues.Now onto the audio, which is where this headset truly shines. Whether via Bluetooth – which is almost indistinguishable from being hard wired – or connected to your controller the audio is outstanding. The bass performance just puts a smile on your face, it’s a really fun sound, with no distortion or background hiss (take note Steelseries!). The audio is very robust and rock solid. And man does it get loud, even via Bluetooth, though PS4 is the exception. This is an issue with all headsets on PS4 and remains an annoyance. On Xbox, fill your boots with the highest volumes and added immersion that entails. Hyper X have ‘hyped up’ (sorry) the dual chamber feature which separates the lows and highs. It’s certainly no gimmick, there is notably far more separation than I’m used to, with no muddy sounds caused by conflicting audio.I use the Bluetooth through my phone and TV – so I can still play video games and watch movies wirelessly. As I said, there is no notable degradation in sound. I use wired when I want to use Dolby Atmos on Xbox, or if I need to chat. But it functions very well as a wireless headset for the most part. I could go on and on about how great this headset is, but I genuinely must get back to using it. If you haven’t tried Hyper X before, prepare to be surprised. If you have, chances are you don’t need to read this review!

  24. **EDITED**So I have been using a pair of Astro A40 TR’s for the last year or so and although the sound quality is amazing, they were very heavy and were very uncomfortable after longer gaming sessions.So I thought let me give these a try as all my other peripherals are made by Razer, and let’s just say I was not let down!First of all these headphones are a lot lighter than I expected, which helps for longer sessions of gaming or work. They come with a usb adaptor for the PC which works well, but also has the potential to work on consoles without this separate adaptor. I have tried these on my PS4 and was very impressed with the sound and mic quality. The mic as mentioned is retractable and when retracted automatically mutes the mic. There is a separate remote on the headphone wire that allows to adjust volume and to mute the mic for when using without the usb adaptor. The usb adaptor has those functions too.The wire of the headphones is made of a fabric type material and is very good at not tangling, unlike traditional plastic coated wiring.The ear/head cushions are a tad bulky in size/looks but they are so comfortable, like actual pillows for your ear and head.Only thing I wish is that the sides of these headphones had the razer logo light up, like the other razer products :PIf you are into PC gaming and play for long hours, definitely buy these headphones 5/5 ^__^——–Unfortunately since writing this review, I have had the mic on these headphones stop working, I then ordered a replacement which then a month later had the same issue, because of this I will have to lower it to 3/5 stars because it might just be my luck or a serious issue with these headphones

  26. 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!

  27. The media could not be loaded.  Pros: Lightweight, VERY Comfortable, most balanced sound we’ve heard from Razer yet. Easy to drive, 7.1 software included for PC use, decent quality mic.Cons: Attached cable and mic, all plastic build, still struggles with volume on PS4

  28. The media could not be loaded.  Just purchased this gaming headset and it works beyond expectations. I was so so surprised for the RGB led lights, the lights on the side look cool and beautiful. the sound is crystal clear, could literally hear every detail in game action. the cushion on the headphones are super comfortable and don’t get uncountable after wearing them for a while. i am really happy with this purchase.

  29. I have had these for a day and so far are alright, not the greatest, especially for $50. I have had better $25 headsets.PROS:-Very very very lightweight, probably the lightest headset I’ve ever owned!-Very comfortable and fits well-Flexibility is decent-Microphone quality is pretty good, not the greatest-free roam mic, comes right up to your mouth-memory foam padding on headband is very comfortable-Noise cancelling-cord is long and not elastic, which is great so it wont curl up and tangleCONS:-Sound quality could use a lot of improvement-Pitchy mids, no bass, highs are screamy-mids are very static and can hurt your ears-Plastic buildOVERALL:Razer has got the build down, the build of the headset is amazing. The thing that could use some work, is whats inside. Mic quality and sound quality can use a lot of work.Build: 10/10Mic: 7/10Sound: 3/10

  30. When I tried talking on the headset initially I got some distortion but, I figured out these sound setting for the mic and sound to work without distortion. These setting might be helpful to someone who is struggling with the same issue. I cannot talk and play music at the same time but, I can switch between stereo mix and headphones if I choose to talk or play music. Great sounding Headset. Good purchase.

  31. I bought the Arctis 1 for my son who is getting into gaming and I didn’t want to go overboard with his headset (I am a gamer and have more expensive equipment but not about to have him start on that!). I was really surprised with the Arctis 1. It is very comfortable and light weight. The head strap padding is pretty good and the fit works both on my head and my sons head (12 years old). He really likes the detachable mic (personally I don’t care as I just use it for gaming, but he likes that he can connect it to different devices that don’t use the mic and therefore doesn’t have a large mic in his face). I was a little skeptical as SteelSeries makes great products, but hasn’t done that well at this price point. However, after using it and seeing my son’s response as well, would highly recommend.

  32. If you are buying this mid-July and have chosen this specifically because the Blue Mic sounds so good think twice. Logitech still has not released the proper software for this to work. Whereas they will work as normal headset and mic, there are no drivers or software support to take advantage of the microphone. Watching some reviews on youtube you will see that reviewers have the software and I had confirmed that Logitech provided that to them in a sort of beta version not to be shared with anyone, so normal consumers like you and me just sit here with a sort of useless headset,Contacted logitech but the only thing I got back was them saying it was still not out and they didn’t have a clue when it was going to be out. Great…

  34. 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

  35. I’ve spent much time researching gaming headsets: reading the many reviews; watching the numerous video reviews, touting how wonderful a certain product is, followed by the comments not exactly corroborating the reviewer’s enthusiastic commentary. I bought one headset based on the adulation thrown down on it by a number of positive reviews only to return them in disgust wishing I’d adhered to the negative feedback. Thankfully, Amazon is wonderful at accepting returns…I’ll be honest; Logitech hadn’t figured highly in my hotlist of gaming headset manufacturers. Don’t get me wrong; I love their products, and I own a superb webcam, mouse and keyboard. It was on the off-chance that I looked at these, based on a friend’s recommendation of his experience of Logitech gaming headsets (he owned a different model, but pointed me in the right direction, thankfully). Satisfied by the praise and largely positive/5 out-of-5 reviews, I took the plunge and purchased these from Amazon.The item arrived much sooner than anticipated (thanks, Amazon!), and I was curious, if not, a little indifferent about what I would expect to find and hear.The packaging and presentation of the headset inspired confidence that what was enclosed was of a high quality. With the contents fully unpacked, it was clear that Logitech had produced something truly exceptional and worth the modest price tag.The headset feels of a very high build quality, definitely surpassing what you’d expect for this price bracket. There are several attachments, and ear pads, accompanied by a nice bag to ferry the headset and said accessories in. The clamping force is reassuring and comfortable, and I didn’t have to worry about the headset slipping off. The headset was very comfortable and I can imagine long gaming sessions not to be marred by a sore cranium. The headset doesn’t have any functional switches on the ear cups, enforcing the desired minimalistic design, other than the inline volume control dial, and mute switch. I find this design very pleasing and it means not having to scramble around with your hands looking to flick a switch, or adjust a dial mounted on an ear cup – this can be so distracting in-game.Now in a state of excitement, but still reserving my judgement, I plugged the headset in to my PlayStation 4 Pro. I didn’t make any adjustments to the audio quality using Logitech’s software, which by the way, offers a myriad of customisation to both sound and mic. The out-of-the-box audio was stunning! I could tell from the off that this headset meant business and I was in for an audible feast. The sound is extremely well balanced, the soundstage vibrant, the bass punchy and present. I played CoD: Modern Warfare Remastered, and the headset breathed a new dimension into the game for me. As cliche as it sounds, I really could hear details not heard before, and I felt I was at an advantage now.I am someone with very high expectations, and I can honestly say that this product meets and surpasses them in many respects. If you’re a little put off by the price, I’d say, take the plunge and invest in a high-quality, worth-every-penny product. I doubt you’ll regret it.

  37. Ok, this is my 1st ever set of gaming headphones and I did my research. I was going to get the Astro’s A50 but read far too many bad reviews on the gen4 about disconnection so I opted for these (yes people moaned about them being too quiet) But my experience was good enough to start with and I will admit that although the highest volume possible was fine for me I could see that they could go up a few notches. So before slagging these off I decided to update the firmware on them as prompted by the mobile app when connected to the headset, once this was done then the volume was increased by an extra 25% IMO, so maybe that’s all people needed to do before saying they were not loud enough? Anyway I am happy with them.

  38. This headset had horrible audio leak into the microphone. I used this for PC gaming and everyone in my discord complained that this headset was garbage. Sound quality was good, and comfort was good, so if you don’t care about mic quality, then this is probably a decent headset for you.Edit (3/10/20): If you are wondering why this item doesn’t have many negative reviews, it is because this company violates amazon rules by offering a refund and replacement only if the review is removed. They have emailed me three times attempting to offer me a refund if I remove this review. The email was clearly written by someone who doesn’t understand basic English punctuation or grammar. However, I refuse to remove my review, this headset was awful for PC gaming. Buyer beware of this company’s unethical practices.

  39. I am really impressed with the NUBWO headset. Great value for money, comfortable fit and excellent sound quality. Used every day whilst working at my desk to listening to music, talking to clients on webinars and playing the PS4.

  40. Awesome little gadget, well made, feels like quality, does what it says, well, very splinter cell haha I Love it! Thanks guys;)

  41. Love these! I have a tiny head so buying a headset was a stressful experience. My old headset used to ache after a while as they’d press my glasses against my ears or squash my piercings. However, these have completely removed this problem from gaming for me. The extendable mic is also a nice touch as it means you can move it away from your face when you’re not in a party. The comfort and sound quality are both high quality 🙂

  43. This headset will hurt your ears and head after a few hours of useThis headset mic is not noise canceling, it in-fact picks up the sound from the headset speakers itself! So, you get reverb through voip which makes it a requirement to use push to talk.For almost $60 and a brand name you would expect some better padding on the ears, would fix the issue of noise going to mic as well.Overall this headset fails in comfort and functionality with a premium price.

  44. Build Quality.The build quality is what you would expect. It is sturdy however not super strong or flexable. The top is a hard plastic and will snap if over stretched. The ear cups contain a clear plastic ring that keeps the cups tight and to shape. Taking this out will distrort the ear cups and it can be a pain yo place them backSound quality.The sound is very loud for the price and very clear. This may not be the best for listening to music as certain pitches will create a tinny sound however for normal online games the souns will let you hear enemies well enoughMic quality.This is were the price is shown. The mic is loud however many people reported it being slightly echoed as if your in a tunnel. Setting the mic lower fixed slightly this however the quality of the mic is the clear lacking party in the headset.Notable Points.Insude the ear on each pad is a clear plastic ring. Do not take this out. This is what keeps the shame of the ear cups. Taking it out will distort them. While i never noticed them wearing my friend who tried could feel it catching on his ear.The mic has very little movement range and sits very high up compared to other headsets. This may cause youto see this from the cornwr of your eye.The controls for some reason are upside down.

  45. First of all, this headset is the best I’ve ever owned, by far. The sound is high quality, the microphone works perfectly and comes with a free windscreen, and it has very comfortable ear pads with an extra set of velvet ones included. BUT, the microphone WILL BE DEFECTIVE upon arrival, and you need to do something to solve the problem and restore the headset to functionality. By default, the headset comes with firmware version 0030, which contains a microphone-breaking glitch. To use the microphone on this headset, you will need to go to the official HyperX download page for the Cloud II headset and get the latest version, 0010. I’m not sure why the number is lower, or why they don’t ship them with this preinstalled, but this was an IMMEDIATE solution for me, so make sure to keep that in mind before buying these.

  46. I have been an avid hyperx cloud supporter for years, I had the first clouds and now these bluetooth ones, they fit amazingly comfortable and sound amazing, I loved them, however, I’ve been having issues with people hearing my computer audio for too long, it followed to my new headset (this one) from the cloud 1’s so I assumed the issue was with my computer but then I got a new USB soundcard as the onboard was crashing discord and the issue followed, starting to suspect the headset now, I did some extensive testing today and found that the internal circuitry simply does not have enough shielding. I plugged the mic that came with the headset into its own extension directly into my sound card and the cross talk is gone, my friends have put up with hearing my game sounds, gunshots etc trigger my microphone for too long. Please be aware of this issue when buying a headset and doing detailed research. I am now in a position where I may not be able to refund the headset. My solution atm is to blue tack the mic to the side so I can continue to use them.

  47. At first this headset worked like a dream, sound quality was great apparently the quality from the mic was crystal clear & I had no other complaints. This was until I put the headset on a few days ago & was suddenly greeted to the left ear cup going deaf. I’ve tried everything to get the sound back & it returns for a few seconds before going deaf again. I’ve been as gentle as can be with this headset, my old HyperX Cloud Stinger I spent £35 on still works now 3 years later but this £100 Logitech headset breaks in 4 months? Ridiculous for the amount of money paid for this, even if I just happened to get a defective headset this is just stupid for the money I paid for this product.

  49. This product doesn’t work unless you download and install their spywear (oh right, it isn’t spywear because you agreed)The mic wouldn’t work, periodThe 7.1 doesn’t work without installing the aforementioned spywearWithout installing the spywear you left with 1 left 1 right spear pointing at the top of your eardrum so it sounds like everything is coming from the skyThe pivot for the mic doesn’t have a hing, or a protective durable rubber bendy thing… It’s just a wire out of a sharp hole, I’m sure it wouldn’t take anytime at all for that sharp hole to cut through the mic sheath and wire, planned obsolescence on a $12 mic, seariously$40 isn’t enough revenue on a $12 product, you’ve also gota take advantage of unwitting parents buying this garbage as gifts for kids or kids friends, so you can profit off selling their privacy in perpetuityNever buying any razer product again, tbh I thought I never would after burning through 3 death adders in 9 months (horrible quality, but dang that mouse fit well in the hand) , but I needed a work headset because of corona and this was one of the few items in stock and I returned this garbage!!BestTom

  50. Due to medical conditions I knew I was going to have to Work From Home for at least 12 weeks so I set out to find a lower priced headset with microphone explicitly for this purpose. The price point on this was less than my budget and with the full ear pieces I was hopeful it would block out the background noise of my family living their daily lives whilst I try and work a 12 hour shift from home on a very call heavy job.The sound is clear on both the headphones and the microphone but I am only using this for calls so can’t tell you what the actual range is like. Nice long cord so you’re not hunched over the PC and can lean well back for much needed stretches. Not too keen on the USB for the light, fells more like a gimmick than anything of actual benefit and when using a cheaper end laptop it takes up one of the two valuable USB slots (the headset does work without the USB being plugged in though).The ear pieces and the headphones themselves are not noise cancelling. They do block a little ambient noise, just enough that I’ve found I do start talking louder because my hearing feels muffled – the bad news about this is I have a foghorn to start with so I’m sure I end up shouting instead of talking. By the end of my first set of 4 night shifts using the headset for 12 hours resulted in one ear becoming sore, my pinna was tender all over and it was a relief to take them off. However, on my last set of 4 day shifts I did not have this problem as it now seems to have moulded to my ear shape and head size. The headstrap is relatively flexible and felt secure during wear so no slipping about and not so tight it gives you a headache.Overall I am pleasantly surprised at how well this budget range headset performed.

  51. Bought specifically for using with the switch. They worked first time they were plugged in and the quality is much better than the previous pair that got broken. My Son (8) has been using them pretty much everyday and they do get used roughly as he is forever rocking back on his chair, swinging about and throwing his arms around. The switch is sitting on a large speaker and when he does this it occasionally gets pulled off with the headphone wire and they have withstood all that without breaking! So personally i think that is pretty impressive, therefore i would say they are robust! The size is good for his head, a little big imo but they don’t slide down or off his head and the mic works perfectly and stays where it is put. He is really pleased with them, so i am happy. Just wish it had a mute button for his mouth..🤣🤣

  52. Worked well but only for 3 months then the charging port broke and it wouldn’t charge. Thankfully Amazon exchanged it without quibble but still not great for a £70 price tag !!

  53. Summary: If you remove the gimmicks/extra little features like the dual ski-mask style swappable headband & plates, the bluetooth/2.4g connection and the base station battery swap the base headset is a horrible mess in terms of sound AND comfort that should cost less than half of what its being retailed for.Sound (music): Let me give you an idea just how bad these sound like. For your information I own a small variety of audio devices, some of high and some of lesser quality: Beyerdynamic MMX 300, Master Dynamic MH40, Sony MDR 1000x, Sennheiser GSP 305, HyperX Cloud II.Imagine wearing a thick hooded sweater and putting your headphones over it. You will hear the sound as if the details are muffled and the audio feels slightly distant (and yes I tried with 3d sound on and off). Comparing to the MMX 300 the difference is night and day, even the HyperX Cloud arguably sound better than these. The bass is basically the only redeeming factor and under no EQ could I get everything else to sound right. How can EQ fix something that is just not there?I have a theory that a lot of users testing these headphones use very low quality audio source and thus cannot notice a difference. That being said, listening to high quality FLAC music files or even 320kb/s Spotify is not even worth it as the detail is just not there.The only type of music I suppose these headphones are good for is vocal heavy like hip hop due to the nature of the sound. Highly detailed and intricate instrumental or even electronic music is not worth it.Sound (gaming): Gaming sound I would say is the only redeeming factor of these headphones. Being a very competitive CS:GO player I had very good clarity while playing the game and without turning on the gimmicky surround sound I could hear my surroundings (gunshots, footsteps etc.) very well and clearly. If you EQ the headphones slightly they can give even better clarify (lower the base and raise the mid/highs). The gaming sound is on par with the priciest gaming headsets.Microphone: Due to the headphones being wireless, I can only guess that this is a technical constraint and not Steelseries being absolute cheapskates in terms of hardware. The microphone sounds bad, like really bad. Its clear, you can hear the voice well but its very poor quality. The tonality is lost and it feels like there is noise cancelling built it which really reduced the dynamic range of the microphone. Any headset for half or even less the price will blow this mic out of the water.Comfort: Another major let down. The headset’s velcro headband system gives you very minimal padding thus it feels more like you are wearing plastic directly on your head. I have no idea why a ski goggle material would be suitable to cushion a plastic headset. I suppose it was done so that they can upsell you the replaceable colorful headband/ear plates. The band is very gimmicky to adjust – you have to pull it out to lengthen the headset height and pull in to lower it, it is not a quick motion and YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE WHOLE HEADSET OFF TO DO IT which is crazy unnecessary. The earpads are also not the best – they are not the most comfortable material to your skin (and for almost 300 GBP I have no idea why we don’t get extra leather/velour earpads) and the sides of my ears were in pain after extended use due to the inside of the earpads rubbing against my ears. This is the primary reason why I had to return the headphones actually due to the earpads being VERY uncomfortable for long use. The only good point of the comfort of the headset is that they sit on you quite loosely which is good for long term use as they don’t squish your head like some other headsets do (Sennheiser GSP series for example).Connectivity: This is a strength of these headphones. Very long range, almost never lose signal, quick to pair and there is no noticeable delay in the 2.4g mode. No issues at all.The Bluetooth/2.4g dual mode is very nice since you can talk on the phone and hear audio on your PC at the same time or listen to music from your phone and play a game on the PC. Very useful feature.Build quality: Nothing too much complain here. The build quality is adequate but too much plastic for my taste. The base station feels nice to the touch with the rubberized base and buttons although it could weigh a bit more to feel more high quality. Still too much plastic.Conclusion: A very ambitious project from Steelseries and the result only confirms the fact: Steelseries are an gaming accessory company and NOT an audio/headphone company. This headset is a great accessory but NOT a great audio device. The sound quality is not great, the mic sounds bad and the comfort is average at best. Read the review to see the good points, there are a couple but they do not make up for the bad points. In the end I returned the headset and never looked back. I don’t really feel that headsets are ready to go full wireless, the technology is just not perfected yet and the competition is very low which does not encourage innovation (Sennheiser and Astro being the only other true competitors at this price range).

  54. The boy child has destroyed 3 headsets in under a year. This one has suited his every need. Good volume for ear and mic, solid connection, over ear earshells and most importantly flexible mic. My son has a peanut head and I a melon bulb, these fit both of us perfectly. Very good sound cancellation for both the wearer and the people in the room. Not sure I would recommend to the ‘serious gamer’ as base is not all it can be but overall for the money very happy purchase

  55. The sound quality through the ear piece is quite bad, sounds like you’re listening to your neighbours talk and when I tested it by talking to a friend on discord he said it was like listening to me try to talk from the end of the road..Even the feel and look of it is bad.Regardless of price when they are selling a product you expect some kind of quality.. which this definitely doesn’t have!Overall it’s junk and you shouldn’t waste your money

  56. Seriously JBL… did you not watch a single YouTube review before making these over priced headphones? I don’t mind paying so much as long as I get a very good quality headset… these are not that.First off, they aren’t for anyone with a large head. So if you have anywhere near a size 8 like me just forget it. They used clear plastic instead of metal for the headband which will not hold up over time. There’s polished plastic on the sides which shows finger prints. Actually most of the construction is plastic. To much RGB to kill the battery. The ear cups are very small so larger ears will not feel good over time of wearing them. The mic feels cheap and can’t be removed. The chat mixer button does not have a catch point to tell you when it’s between both evenly.As far as function goes, it needed a firmware error out of the box and started by giving me an error when plugging it in for the update. Then after it was plugged in it told me I need to have it paired with the dongle and on. But plugging it in turned it off every time. Then trying to turn it on after I unplugged it the thing wouldn’t pair again to get rid of the message. After I finally got it hooked back up it made me do ANOTHER firmware update. Followed by needing it plugged in again and this time not even finding the headset while being plugged in. Come to find out the USB-C connector can only be hooked to it one way for it to work. It then did the same error and ran me through the same issues again..This time I skipped the update since it wouldn’t work just to at least hear the sound from them. Well they sound like crap. I had the volume dial all the way up and the sound on my PC at 100 and they’re at about what 60% would be on my Logitech or Cloud Flights. You can barely tell a difference between the surround sound mode and normal stereo mode.Sorry, JBL… but you did a HORRIBLE job making a gaming headset and should stay out of this market. This headset isn’t even worth what I could buy a cheap wired one for. It’s poorly made, functions poorly, and sounds terrible. Either go back to the drawing board and watch some YouTube reviews to see what gamers really want in a headset or cancel the whole line and give up. I honestly will NEVER buy another JBL product again after this experience.If you don’t care on price and want a good wireless headset and have a small head, buy Corsairs. If you want one for a big head get Logitech. If you want the best sound for around this cost, buy a gaming amp, mod mic, and the 80 dollar philips headphones here on Amazon. Honestly for the money the Philips/Modmic/Sennheiser amp setup is the best gaming sound I’ve ever had. But DO NOT waste your money on these.

  57. My JBL Quantum 800 headset today. I opened the package, excited to test them out. Tragically, I had nearly the same experience and problems as other recent posts.* The ear cups are much smaller than expected and squeeze my ears.* Dongle required firmware update and then could not be paired to headset. I eventually gave up on using the dongle. Because of this, all testing was done using Bluetooth.* Microphone is awful. It muffles my voice, requiring that I speak quite loudly just to be heard.* Tests performed using a Windows 10 PC, Samsung S10+ smartphone, and iPhone 10X Max with same results.It should be noted that I never got around to testing sound quality or volume. I just could not get past the glaring and critical failures of this headset. I’ll be shipping these back tomorrow.

  58. I have been waiting awhile now for these JBL headphones to drop and I am glad I waited. They fit very nicely and the ear cups are a little small but my ears are not gigantic like dumbo so that is okay.They keep outside noises out well even with the ANC off, with it on they are amazing, all I hear is my tinnitus before I hop on the game.I do like the led lights, I have not used them to the full extent on pc, I am waiting for parts to build a new one. My current PC has windows 7 (yes I know out of date) it downloaded the driver’s for the wireless usb adapter provided and i had no problems. They worked amazingly with World of Warcraft and had minimal problems on Discord.The microphone overall is very clear but very sensitive as well, and I love the mute feature on the mic when you put it in the upright position.I use it mainly on my xbox one x and it doesn’t even have to be on, since xbox does not support bluetooth headsets. Another thing is the adjustments on the overhead part of the headphones itself is very touchy and slides easily so be careful while setting them for your huge cranium or small noggin.Overall I feel the cons are too small for the pros, the surround sound is very clear and the headset itself is very clear, I have had no static or crackling issues with it so far.

  59. Sound quality and build is AMAZING! JBL has always been my trusted brand and I’m never disappointed by their products. These headphones are really high quality and very comfortable. My only issue is that I really wish these were more console friendly. The software doesn’t run if it isn’t plugged into your PC, so console users beware. They plug into your controller using the headphone jack BUT the issue is the mic had bad echoing and is super sensitive so my friends hear every little sound in my room. It even echoes when you mute it. I bought this for my xbox in hopes it would still deliver in which it somewhat did.. I would highly recommend for PC users because the software is really cool and very customizable but most importantly SOUNDS INCREDIBLE.

  60. After looking for some headphones for gaming and laptop use, I arrived to this pair. The aesthetics got my attention, from the size of the drivers (50mm with a frequency range of 20Hz-40KHz), to the customizable lighting effects that surround the outside of the drivers and the logo.Sound performance:The noise cancellation increases the feel of the bass on lower frequency’s, but does not diminish the higher frequency sounds. While playing Streets of Rage 4, I was able to appreciate more the ambient sound as you walk through the city and sewer levels. In comparison to B&W CM5 that I use for speakers the Quantum One’s had a better mid range, but it’s to be expected from headphones as larger speakers and separate subwoofer dull out some of the mid range.The microphone was clear and crisp to the other players. And did not pick up any ambient sound.Comfort:The headphones never felt heavy (369g) even after 3 hours of online matches. The size of the band and pressure by the cushions was not noticeable. Only on the first use did the tips of my ears feel some soreness, but after adjusting the placement there were no issues.Downside is that you need to plug in the usb (C-A) in order to fully run the drivers. When using only the 3.5mm connection there was not enough power to the drivers and you don’t get the light effects surrounding the outside of the drivers. This just made for a lot of cables when playing with a controller or an arcade stick. Since this pair of headphones are closed off there is small amount of heat that you feel in your ear canal. In my experience this is mainly do to the higher volumes and not from the material. I’ve used Shure SHR750DJ open headphones that didn’t cause this problem since they’re open, but in my Shure SE400 I could feel some heat inside the ear after long music listening sessions. The Quantum One’s didn’t cause any kind of sweat or heat on the outer part of the ear.If you want a solid pair of gaming headphones, I don’t think you can go wrong with this pair. Just understand the cable management when using consoles, and that you’ll need a pc to customize the lighting effects.

    6/3/20 – Amazon corrected the incorrect name of this item, so they are no longer listed as “wireless”. This incorrect description was the main reason for the 1 star overall review. Now that it is corrected, I have amended my review of the headset to 4 stars. The reason that I did not give it 5 stars is because, well honestly for the main reason the price is high for a set that is wired. The other issue I found in my short time of using them is that the software/control panel for the LED lights is a little difficult to get the hang of. Could use an easier interface for editing the color and movement.To keep this review short, I just wanted to point out to potential buyers that the name of the item is: JBL Quantum ONE – Wireless Over-Ear Performance Gaming Headset with Active Noise Cancelling…. HOWEVER they are NOT wireless. I reported this mistake to Amazon over 1 week ago and it is still listed as Wireless. 1 of the main reasons I purchased this headset was purely because they were wireless. So hopefully you will see this review before you complete your purchase if you are looking for a wireless headset. They do have good sound, comfort and noise cancellation from the few minutes that I tested them. I did not pay close enough attention when unpacking them to realize it before opening them. I plugged them in and used them in what I thought was their wireless ability to hear them while I assumed they were charging and configuring the profiles via the software. It was later in the 1st evening that I thought I was loosing my mind trying to find how to pair them with my PC and phone etc. So if you purchased them as I did without reading this review first, you’re not the only one who made the mistake. I also found it interesting that I do not think there is another review that points this out. I read some of the reviews before hand and didn’t notice that it wasn’t mentioned. I saw a few mention that if you wanted to customize the LED lighting, you had to do it through the JBL software. So I assumed that I would configure the lighting and EQ there, and it would stay the same when pairing and using them with another device.Come on JBL and Amazon, “Wireless” is literally the 4th word in the product name. That’s a pretty big mistake on both companies. Fortunately Amazon still has a fantastic return policy and makes it very easy to return them. This will not cause me to stop trusting Amazon or JBL in the future. Both fantastic companies. I have 2 Studio 312’s, 2 studio subs and a studio center channel that have all lasted over 18 years and are fantastic speakers so when I saw what I thought was a wireless gaming headset, it made sense that I would think they would serve me very well. So do not take my review as a statement of not recommending both companies. Far from it. Just a mistake that unfortunately fell through the cracks on both sides, creator and seller.

  62. Disappointed! I bought these to replace my older Sades headphones, which have been great and still function perfectly after 3 years. They were just getting worn out at the ear cushions. Hoped these would be better but NO they are not. Bought them March 25th. Only use them at my desk. No abuse. 1 adult user.The mic has stopped working and the earphones are making a popping noise. And if course its too late to return to Amazon. I would not recommend these… There are lots of options available in the same price range.

  63. Not sure what I’m doing wrong with this product, it’s connected but there is a continuous beeping sound . Thought maybe low battery but had a long over night charge, not the distance as it’s less than 2 metre away. Thought a dodgy USB port so moved It. Still happens. Should it be directly plugged in the PS4?Anyway besides the irritating bleep, the sound is good. The Mic works well when not cutting out due to the beep and it sits ok on the head, slightly heavier than I imagined it would be.I’ll review again if the bleeping sound disappears!

  64. If you are looking for a gaming headset with a bit of everything.- The light frame(cushion on top) without access to clamping force.- Comfortable ear cushions with proper internal padding and am really happy with that because I don’t like when my ears are smashed.- Multiplatform compatibility with extra dongle available. The sound quality will be satisfied with, even I can write that for the game like call of duty(warzone), I can hear 3D sound what I mean is easy I can notice from which direction the steps coming, or glass is breaking all that kind of things that gamers find useful when they play their favourite games.- The headset has also USB but I think is only to light them up, you cannot use it for USB sound.- The mic is not removable but you have a mute button which is better because I always lose things like that.- The cable is really long I think is about 2 meters(even more).I can recommend the headset because for this price you get a headset that can compare with the expensive budget headset that cost a fortune.

  65. 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.

  68. Really nice pair of gaming headphones.I tested this with both PC and PS4, and from what my friend’s have said, my mic quality is much better than other previous gaming headphones I used. The instructions are really easy, so if you are confused it’s easy to understand.The headphones itself are actually really soft and doesn’t cause any discomfort… even after 8 hours of gaming lol. They’ll last a long time I assume, too, purely from the quality. I really recommend these.

  69. 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?

  71. A good all around headset with great sound quality and comfortable for long wear. I’ve used these quite regularly, almost daily and many times for upwards to 3-4 hr sessions of game play. The sound quality is great even when wearing one ear pad off my ear to listen for my kids/family, everything is crisp. They are not plug and play, you will need to upload the software to use them on your computer. There are a plethora of settings you can mess with to get exactly what you want. The microphone is very flexible and easy to move around with quick nudges, though it is sometimes inconsistent with what it will and will not pick up. Any quick “huh” or short responses wont be picked up by the mic at all even with it practically laying on your lips. The light up function has three options to play around with. Steady, Fade and pulse. All easily selected by the remote attacked to the cable, which is long enough that I can drape it over the back of my neck and still have about three feet of slack between me and the USB port. On that note, is is a purely USB headset. No adapter to use just the headphone port or just the mic port. Which doesn’t really bother me at all. The remote on the cable controls the lights, the volume, mute and headphones vibration setting. Which catches me off guard when playing intense games and accidentally turning it on. All around I do recommend this headset for anyone needing something fun and budget friendly that will hold up to regular use.

  72. 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.

  75. I bought these for my son to be used for gaming, I have bought 3 pairs in the last 6 months all have gone faulty or broken. Not one to be buying ridiculously priced gaming headset. However the quality of these and the sound is really good so he uses them for listening to music, videos and movies.They are very comfortable and light and the design is really well made. Noise cancelling is decent and you can’t hear much with the headset on which is a huge plus, Although getting ones attention is near on impossible! :o)They are used directly on a Xbox One S and literally just plug in and away you go.Overall I’m really impressed with the headset so far, you really get a lot for the price and it’s definitely worth giving these a shot before splashing out money on a much more expensive piece of equipment they look the part and are quality!Hope this helps.Phil

  76. 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.

  78. 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.

  80. I’m only going to talk about the sound here, none of the other features.You’re going to be dissapointed when you first turn them on. Theres a subtle hiss when nothings playing and although clear they initially sound flat and unexciting. Being an audiophile I was ready to return them. But then I installed the Steelseries Engine 3 software and turned on DTS 2.0 and oh boy now we where talking, but lets start from the beginning.I had purchased these to replace the ROG Deltas (Quad DAC) which are 24-bit 96k (studio quality) which sound exceptional but had a fair amount of wear and tear and cabled with type-c. I was a little dissapointed when I saw the Arctis Pro Wireless where only 16-bit 48k (dvd quality) but was willing to give them a go as they are wireless. The mids on these are some of the best (clarity) I’ve ever heard but the bass and trebs where SERIOUSLY lacking. I tried messing around with custom EQ’s and just couldn’t get it where it needed to be (but with a 40mm driver I knew it had the capability.) Then I installed the Steelseries Engine 3 software (for windows) and turned on DTS 2.0 and oh boy did they go from driving a VW Polo 1.2 to a Golf GTI 2.0.The flat range suddenly became more dynamic and the sound was alive. The highs and lows where almost there but needed minor tweaking. Setting the Bass Enhancement to ‘Low’ gave it the fill but with a slight overshoot. This meant the EQ 100hz had to be adjusted and lowered by -2. For the treble, setting ‘Dialogue Enhancement’ to Low created clean highs but again a slight overshoot. Turning this off and increasing the EQ 8000hz by +2 made the sound perfectly balanced (see attached pic.) Then finally setting the “volume limiter” to ‘on’ to tighten the ranges and deliver clean and uncompromised sound.This in my opinion has created some mind blowing sound for gaming and music. The clarity/immersion is exceptional and will give you an advantage. Never have mids been so good (especially for gaming.) Even on my ROG Delta’s with Quad DAC’s they sound muddy compared to these.They definantley wouldn’t be worth it if it wasn’t for DTS 2.0 in my opinion, but because of it they definantley are! (with a bit of fine tuning of course)I give them 4.5/5 stars (half a star taken for having to tweak them)Update: If like me you got a bighead and dont get on with the weave earcups (they feel scratchy to me) then get some Geekria Sport Cooling-Gel Ear Pads. THEY ARE AMAZING and mould so much better around the ear. Headphones feel lighter and have less sound leak https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08CZRZC9FUpdate 2: You also get a free license for DTS Sound Unbound Windows Store App which allows you to install the Spatial Sound format profile for Windows.

  81. This is one big headset and it’s not exactly light, but whoo! the sound quality is fantastic. I’ve had to spend a few days adjusting World of Warcraft sound perimeters on my gaming laptop, tweaking here and there, until I’ve got things balanced and of sensible volume, because the bass is truly powerful. My friend informs me that voice chat is now so clear, it’s as if I were standing beside her; I can hear her darn near perfectly, too.The ear cups are very comfortable, but I do find they act as ear muffs as well as mufflers if I wear them for extended gameplay. Toasty ears this winter, then. But, alas, I cannot plug the USB for the LEDs in, because it interferes with sound stability and volume, and I’ve not yet found a way of preventing this nor is there any information about problem solving in the manual.A great headset for the price. The LEDs are bright and super cool, just may not be usable on every device.

  82. The QC 35 2 headphone is wonderful, it exactly the same as the original headphone. The microphone, sound quality is clear but, kinda changes your voice, and with just the slightest touch to the microphone or wire, it disconnects the audion in the headphone itself. The microphone mute button is the cheapest crap ever very low-quality plastic. Expected something better from bose.

  83. These gaming headphones are super comfortable. The don’t get sweaty We were surprised at how affordable good sound could be. Incredible bass and positional surround audio. We even like the light-up LEDs on the outside of the earpieces. You have full control of the mic placement (it moves up or down) and whether or not the mic is on. The unit comes with a 3.5mm splitter cable so it can be easily used with your devices that have separate input/outputs. That was helpful for our Mac laptop. The headphone cable is sturdy, heavy duty, and won’t get tangled or damaged easily.

  84. These headphones are pretty decent while they work but guess what bose did. Made them disposable. The battery is non-replaceable and they cannot be used while charging (without noise) so therefore when the battery degrades in two or so years the headset will become a paperweight. Very greedy on behalf of bose they should be ashamed at their tactics. Corporate greed 101.

  85. Edit: This CAN be used while charging, but you won’t want to because it buzzes while charging. I’ve had a pair of QC 35 ii for 3 years and the battery hasn’t had any issues. If you do happen to have battery issues (which will be apparent within months if it’s gonna be an issue), then there’s a 1 year warranty. The battery is user replaceable but not easy- if you have any technical skill it’s doable. For me, and this isn’t a great reason not to buy it. Amazon offers extended warranties too. I’d still buy it even if I read the bad review based on faulty battery.Original review: The biggest issue is that if you use this with the mic you can’t use any of the buttons. Using this on an Xbox you NEED a controller adapter to adjust the volume. It shouldn’t be like that. I should be able to use ALL the buttons. I’m not sure how this works on a PC or a PlayStation, but if you need another $40 purchase to make a $330 headset have volume controls I think you probably need to rethink design bose.If you plan on spending the $40 for the controller adapter (or you already have one) then these are great. They are some of the most COMFORTABLE headsets I’ve tried (I’ve tried Razer Nari Ultimate, several pairs of Astros, RIG800XL, Turtle beach (420x, 600, 700, 700 version 2), several Hyperx cloud, and steel series arctis). They are LIGHTWEIGHT, and take only an hour to charge. You can also use these as regular Bluetooth headphones on the go. The sound is pretty similar in comparison to other headsets of the price range and the noise cancelling is better than most.Honestly, if I didn’t already have a controller adapter I’d have returned them because only being able to mute while playing is ridiculous. I’ll keep them though because I can’t for the life of me find a GOOD pair of headphones that doesn’t have wireless connection issues, isn’t too heavy, and still sounds good. After looking for so long I think I will just settle for these as they are comfortable and do the job with the added $40 controller adapter. Both the MS and the TB ones work but the TB has more settings and options so I recommend that one.

  86. The quality of this headphone is superb. To be honest i was bit skeptical when I purchased it because I wasn’t entirely buying it to the description that was provided but when I actually got the product it exceed my expectation given the price that i bought it for. Whoever is looking to purchase the headphone for any purpose this is must.

  87. 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.

    My 12 year old daughter’s review:I really love this headset!This is probably the best headset I’ve had so far because every single feature on it is great!The audio is impeccable, the sound stays within the headset and not all over the place (which usually happens in most headphones).The volume wheel is very easy to use and is great to move up and down smoothly.The cable that connects from your device to the headset is amazing – although a little long for me.I can’t express though how strong and durable the cable is. I have had headsets that have a very weak wire that always breaks after a little while but the wire on this devices looks like it will last a very long time.Last but not least, the microphone. According to my friends, I sounded much clearer when talking than my previous headsets.Overall, I really love this headset and I would definetly recommend it!

  91. The media could not be loaded.  Really can not fault these headphones I’ve been using them everyday for work and at night for gaming. They are perfect for online meetings and playing video games. The best thing about them is that they work across platforms so you can use them with your PC or Consoles. I’ve used mine on my Mac, PC and PS4 and on each device its as straight forward as plugging the head set in. All the wires needed are included in the box and there is even a USB extension wire. The sound of the headset both in terms of the earphones and microphone is fantastic and very clear, its also extremely comfortable to wear even after a long duration. It also has an inline remote control so you can adjust the volume and mic settings. I really like this headset, its great quality and it also lights up too. Great piece of kit.

  92. These seem like very nice headphones with good quality sound in and out, but I bought them for my son to play Fortnite without cables, and something about Fortnite’s voicechat makes that all impossible. All works fine with the wires connected, but the moment you go to bluetooth (AND turn on voicechat) everything else goes quiet (you get voicehat working, but lose all game audio and all audio from other apps too)… I know it is more likely that Fortnite is to blame, but that doesn’t change my review – they do not work with Fortnite. (I have tried every update, setting, reinstallation, and workaround I can find!).

  93. Excellent quality, excellent sound, and very comfortable in all day use.I would recommend getting the mix amp with these to really maximise the quality of the sound – you can purchase the headset on its own, but I would advise against this if you don’t already have the amp. It obviously adds to the cost, but it’s very much worth it.The amp is intuitive to use, and allows for quick adjustments on the sounds volume, surround sound, and equalizer presets. You can also use the Astro command centre application to make further adjustments on the equalizer presets. You can even download custom presets, and there’s a great library of presets available for most games.I can’t remark on the microphone quality, as I use a standalone mic, but feedback from my warzone buddies who use the mic are very happy with it, the quality of it, and I never have any issue hearing them calling out to be revived.I did however make the mistake of being too excited to read the instructions when setting these up, so I’ll save you an issue I ran into when not reading the manual. I use these on my PC, which has an optical port on the back. However, if you’re using these with your PC, you should not connect the optical cable, and instead just connect it with the USB. When you connect the optical cable, you’re unable to select the Astro Pro Game sound setting in your PC, and the sound quality without this is just not the same. So save yourself the hassle, and only connect the USB to the PC.If you’re on the fence about getting these, – they are rather expensive :/ , – don’t be. I’m glad I invested in these, and I would highly recommend.

  94. These headphones have excellent aesthetics, outstanding sound quality, estimable ergonomics and a good microphone. Everything was as advertised, and exceeded my expectations. The only downside would be that the materials are not the highest of quality in terms of durability, but that is not a problem if you care about your headphones.I was just using standard Apple earphones for everything, and I would say that these were a definite upgrade. My friends could immediately tell that I had a better quality microphone.The sound quality is also excellent. I listen to a lot of classical music, so it had to play many different elements, but it has certainly pulled through with its crisp sound.For anyone out there who may be wondering if you can use this on Apple products without the traditional headphone jack, you can, as long as you have the adapter that can convert from the lightning cable to the 3.5mm plug.Overall, I’d say it is worth more than what you pay for, and as long as you know how to handle things with care (though it would still be able to take a few good hits). I would recommend to anyone looking for good quality but affordable headphones for not only gaming, but even general purpose. I hope this was helpful.

  95. Are you looking for a headset to talk to your squad on Warzone? Getting ready for some hot drops in Verdansk? Want to hear people coming round the corner?Look no further.This headset will take your gameplay to the next level. You’ll hear people coming round the corner before swiftly being shot. You can sneak about the Gulag and then get shot. Tell your squad where the enemies have just shot you from. But best of all, it blocks out the sound of your Mrs telling you off for swearing after being shot.Overall, this is great for the price but sadly all it seems to have done is make the process of me losing at Warzone come through in 3D surround sound.

  96. I have owned the last generation of this model of Astro A20 and used it daily. It was the best headset I have ever owned. This new model is simply even better. The comfort is unbelievable, the build is very solid, and the price is a steal for the quality. The fact they dropped that annoying little black box connection for the dongle is amazing, and the connection feels noticably stronger. I can walk much farther away with this headset than the previous model, and it has yet to drop once. The older model dropped at least once a day. I love the black and white color combo too.

  97. Read description……usb plug in….not regular headphones. Plug directly in xbox and doesn’t work…cannot plug in controller. Tried to order a converter but that didn’t work either. I need to send back and order a different style. Quality based on feel seems luke a good solid pair of headphones. We haven’t been able to listen to anything yet so i cannot comment on sound quality.

    Update: Following my one-star review, the seller got in touch and demonstrated excellent customer service by offering me either a replacement or a refund. I chose the replacement, which we’ve just received. The seller communicated throughout and checked in to make sure the replacement had arrived and that we were happy with it. Best customer service I’ve ever experienced following an issue. Well done, and much appreciated!Bought three of these for my three sons. The sound quality is decent, the fit is good and comfortable. But after just three months, the mic has stopped working on one of them. Not the most expensive headset, and I know headsets tend not to last all that long, but I expect them last longer than this. Can’t contact the seller through Amazon.

  99. Great headset and very comfortable, even for glasses wearers. It doesn’t block out much background noise. I’ll be using this for working remotely as opposed to gaming.Please be forewarned that PC set up sucks, or at least it did for me and a few other reviewers. Long story short, the YouTube tutorial, in-box directions, and Astro support page are not helpful if things just don’t work immediately. If you want to connect this to a PC, plug everything in, PRESS THE GAME MODE BUTTON on the headset (pro secret tip scavenged from a reviewer below, thank you kind human), and make sure the little USB light is solid white. Blue is (apparently) for game systems. The Command Center doesn’t seem to do much/be of use for this model, or at least isn’t on my laptop.Good luck!

  100. I give it 5/5 on everything except comfort.It isn’t that they are uncomfortable per se, I’m just used to having a retractable microphone so having one permanently in my peripheral is a bit distracting.In your next version you should make it retractable or removable imo.The sound is pretty crisp, not overly bassy and the microphone itself works fine. The lead seems really durable, will see how it holds up overtime where it connects to the earpiece.A downside is that the leftside plastic on the earpiece can make a bit of noise from head movements. No idea if that is just my headset or an issue with the product itself.Reason for buying; good price and no unnecessary LED lights. Reviews seemed overall positive with little complaints over the things I care about/am looking for from a headset.If the brand makes a couple improvements I’ll certainly purchase from them again.

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

  102. Right out of the box the headset is uncomfortable, and adjusting the band with this design is a little awkward. But I get it plugged in, turned on, my computer recognizes that the A20 is plugged in… But I do not receive any audio from the computer to the headset. Though I can hear beeps from the headset, as well as my own voice through the mic, so I know the speakers work.Thinking this is a me problem I grab the little paper booklet thinking it’ll have basic troubleshooting, but it does not. What it has is a little drawing of parts in the box, a slip of paper asking me to not return it, instead go to their faq page, and some generic product warnings.Following the instructions I go to the faq page, and find it’s just a bunch of videos that I can’t hear as I dont have a working headset. Also some software to download that does nothing. There is no help to be had but, “Force pair it” which I tried several times to no avail.I eventually get frustrated and sent in a ticket to the company’s support page, but get only a canned response telling me it’ll take up to 3 days to get back to me. Realizing I only have a limited window to return this thing I decide it’s not worth it to play ticket tag and file for a return.

  103. 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

  104. I just gotta say wow! This headset is amazing! Ive compared it to my more expensive set and its just the same if not better! Super comfortable to wear, noise cancellation is amazing! Love the color and the style, im just obsessed! Totally recommend these for gamers but also for anyone in need of headphones, my whole family tried them and now i gotta get some for them too lol

  105. Where do I start. After a few weeks of purchase, the headband plastic started peeling paint! What I thought was a solid plastic head support, turned out to have a dipped/sprayed on coat which is now falling away to reveal a see through band. The headphone socket on the front of the amp is extremely tight, and it feels like I’m going to break it everytime I remove the lead. The sound quality even with custom set ups, feels extremely tinny. After normal usage the cans pinch your head so much, that long sessions are extremely uncomfortable and not even on the cards, with glasses it’s worse.I have and still own many Astro headphones/amps and these new additions have to be the worst I’ve ever owned. Poor quality, poor sounding, really cheaply made. Whoever QC’d this iteration of the Astro family needs firing.I look after all of my possessions with great care and expect value for money and a quality product. In this case I received neither and will be looking at other products in the future, rather than give Astro my custom.

  106. RGB on the headset looks good, not too bright. All cables from switch to pc are included I use on an Xbox and pc. Sound quality isn’t bad either, especially for £15. Very comfortable even if you wear glasses like myself the earpads are extremely soft so they don’t push on your glasses too muchWell worth the money

  107. I do like this headset, I think the sound and mic are great. I just don’t understand why the playstation logo’s are not on this set like the picture shows, it’s supposed to be inside the ear and on the sides. I’d previously bought a headset for the nintendo switch from the same brand and they had the logos on, like the pictures show. I’m quite disappointed that they are plain, the reason I picked these over another pair were because of the PS Logo on them.

  108. I ordered the Bluedee Gaming Headset yesterday, and Amazon actually delivered it Same Day which was a first for me. This is a well-built and high-quality headset with some great features. The headset goes completely over both ears which helps to prevent my ears from hurting after 2 or 3 hours of game play. Although not noise-cancelling, the earmuffs have a tight seal around my ears which helps eliminate 95% of all external sounds. I also really like the microphone and how you can adjust it to be right up against your lips. Overall this is definitely a 5-Star product.

  109. The media could not be loaded.  The earphones are great and very comfortable. I have been wearing it for nearly 6 hours and I did not feel any head pain or heavy weight on my head. The sound quality and surround effects are excellent.

  110. These do really well in reviews and seem to be the best when it comes to gaming which they could be, but I use my cans for music and gaming and when it comes to music, they do not cut the mustard. The software has an unintuitive layout and the EQ is difficult to tune correctly, you need to be a master of frequencies to get it just right, I found the sound to be quite muffled and mid focused which is probably good for games, no good for music. The streamdeck is nice although it is proprietary, a little more customisation would make it a better product as well.

  111. I mainly use these to game in my OC but I have also true them with my PS5 and my Nintendo switch and they work absolutely brilliantly on them all. The lights need USB power to work.They are very comfortable to wear for long gaming sessions.The sound quality is brilliant and the mic is nice and clear too.The ear pads are nice and comfy and don’t overheat my ears which is a bonus.Overall a really nice set of gaming headphones.

  112. I like:- the sound quality- the 3.5mm connection so doesn’t take up a USB slot- it is very light- the flip to mute micI didn’t like:- it is too tight if you have a big head- the scratchy material on your ears

  113. Brought these for my son who goes through head sets like no tomorrow for like £30-£59 a time but brought these and are amazed how good the quality is! Headset is very comfortable, speakers and mic are so clear no crackling! They light up when pluged in usb port which my son loves!

  114. To start with i have to say dont let the price fool you. These are really good sounding headphones. Ive never been a big fan of headphones when gaming because i found after a period they became cumbersome and heavy on the head but i spent 4 hours gaming with these and i didnt experience any of that. They are very lightweight and comfortable with nice chunky ear cushions. The mic also works nicely with clear audio (so im told) in the box you get everything you need to plug and play but most importantly you get an extension for the usb connection which i thought was handy. You have a mic switch and a volume reel on the cable which makes it easy for adjusting while gaming. Overall im extremely happy with this product and the build quality.

  116. Was looking for a product which wasn’t going to break the bank as I’m a casual gamer. I’m surprised at the quality of these. They fit really well, even with my tiny head, are adjustable, and the band is flexible too to make a more comfortable fit. The sound quality is brilliant on them. I’m not a tech expert to know the ins and outs but sounds like surround sound when you’re using them, loud, crisp, clear and bassy. The lights on the ear muffs and mic are an added bonus and they too are clear and bright. Cable long enough that you don’t feel tied down. Overall easy to use, good quality and really quick delivery

  118. I got my pair today and I guess i’m going to be the first person on amazon to review them. I’ll update this when and if it becomes relevant. I’ve come to these from the arctis 7, and i’ll talk about the good first.These things are light, they are less than half the weight of my previous headset, and it’s definitely noticeable. I can shake and turn and barely feel it moving on my head. Which is certainly a plus. My old headset felt annoying when I moved around a lot.I was extremely worried about the mic, picking up too much, or picking up nothing at all. I’m happy to report that the mic is completely serviceable, and while I keep reaching for a mic that isn’t there, I’m sure i’ll get used to it in no time at all. It also doesn’t pick up my loud mechanical keyboard. So that’s nice.I’m not big on audio, I’ve had some extremely expensive headsets and some really cheap ones, and i’ve never had a problem with audio. I can say with certainty already, I don’t have a trouble with audio on this set either. If you have high audio demands, maybe read a better review than mine.Now let’s talk about the badDespite it’s weight being nonexistent, it’s not comfortable. You can very clearly feel the headband on your head. It never bleeds away. They didn’t put ANY foam or padding into the band. You are a tiny cloth layer away from plastic on your noggin. And you will be feeling it. You can easily adjust it every 40-60minutes so its not leaning on the same part, but you’re gonna be doing that a lot if you plan on using these for 8 hours straight.It’s TINY, like REALLY small. You could easily mistake these for headsets for a child. I have a tiny baby head with flat ears, so this isn’t a problem for me. It might be one for you though.There is no noise cancelling, not even from the ear cups so you’ll just be hearing the world in all it’s glory.I think it’s a mixed bag, I’m pre-emptively giving it a four in expectation that i’ll get used to some of the stuff about it I’m not loving right now.

  119. The media could not be loaded.  If you’re looking for an affordable headset without a heavy price tag, this is definitely the one to buy. The crisp sound makes your gaming experience better. If you’re into first-person shooters like me hearing footsteps won’t be an issue with this headset. The gunshots sound immense through this headset. The design is great, the overall finish of this headset is not only attractive but provides the comfort you’d expect from an expensive headset. Strong and sturdy build.

  122. Updated Review (10/20/21):These headphones are now having loads of connection and sound issues after just about a month of use. I’ve used them with multiple devices using the USB port and they have constantly had problems with random disconnection and failure to reconnect. I have done my diligence in attempting a lot of troubleshooting methods. There is no excuse for releasing a product that has this little testing, or advertising a wireless headphone like this with no option for connecting it with a 3.5mm audio jack when the wireless technology is this pathetic, shoddy, and unreliable. I would recommend avoiding these headphones at all costs.Initial Review:For about 3 and a half years, I’ve used Sennheiser HD 559 headphones for gaming at my PC every day. They sounded incredible and got heavy use. However, recently, they had come into having some issues, so I went on Amazon to check out their headset options.At first, I was going to purchase another hi-fi open-back headphone, but Amazon recommended me these Logitech G435 headphones, which featured wireless USB connectivity.I was intrigued about what kind of quality I could get for just $80 in a wireless over-ear gaming headset, so I decided to purchase them. I had used Logitech G433 headphones in the past and was very fond of them, and I have trusted Logitech for a long time, as they have always made solid products.This headset is no exception to that quality statement.Fit:I first want to talk about the fit. These headphones are not very big. However, they are just the right size for people who have smaller to normal size heads. I, though, have a decently large head. These headphones fit very well on me, but I had to adjust them nearly all the way to their max extension. Despite this, they rest very comfortably, give my ears plenty of room inside the earcup, and are pretty much exempt from producing any fatigue due to their astonishingly light weight of just 164 grams. The only complaint I have is due to the headband, which could have used far more padding, but it suffices as it is and doesn’t cause too much discomfort.Sound:As for sound, they definitely don’t match my previous headphones, the Sennheiser HD 559. But that’s okay, because I didn’t expect them to. These headphones pack in a decent quality microphone, wireless connectivity, high quality build materials, and above-average comfort for $20 less than the aforementioned Sennheisers at MSRP.In lieu of that, these headphones sound very good for their price. They sound almost identical to the Logitech G433 headphones, with even a little bit more clarity on the low end.It is worth noting though that these headphones will not do well at cancelling out any background noise, so if that is something that is important to you, I advise you to look elsewhere.Battery & Connectivity:The listed battery life of 18 hrs is pretty accurate from my experience, which is plenty of juice for multiple days of average gaming spans. As long as you plug the headphones in to charge every few days, they should never run out of battery on you.The connectivity blew me away. There is absolutely no noticeable latency, which is already an improvement over countless other wireless gaming headsets I’ve tried featuring USB wireless connectivity, with some being almost double the price of these G435s. I will disclaim, however, that I have NOT tried these with their Bluetooth mode, nor have I tried them on any consoles that support these headphones, only my PC.Overall Verdict:I have very positive opinions about these headphones. While they are definitely not perfect, they are a very good choice for the price of $80 in my opinion, and I plan to use these headphones as my daily gaming headset until it’s time for me to move on again due to wear and tear. Good job, Logitech.

  123. Updated Review (05/23/22):Logitech reached out to me and sent me a new pair of headphones with a firmware update that can be installed online. They truly went above and beyond, and I have yet to experience any issues with this new pair. They’ve now outlasted my old pair by a sizeable margin, and my faith in this product has been restored. I would highly recommend these headphones as long as you are willing to look online on a computer to install the firmware before use with other products or your PC. They sound great, they’re comfortable, and they have a great battery life. Thanks to Ambrose Lee of Logitech for showing me such kindness and for giving me absolutely above and beyond levels of customer service.Updated Review (10/20/21):These headphones are now having loads of connection and sound issues after just about a month of use. I’ve used them with multiple devices using the USB port and they have constantly had problems with random disconnection and failure to reconnect. I have done my diligence in attempting a lot of troubleshooting methods. There is no excuse for releasing a product that has this little testing, or advertising a wireless headphone like this with no option for connecting it with a 3.5mm audio jack when the wireless technology is this pathetic, shoddy, and unreliable. I would recommend avoiding these headphones at all costs.Initial Review:For about 3 and a half years, I’ve used Sennheiser HD 559 headphones for gaming at my PC every day. They sounded incredible and got heavy use. However, recently, they had come into having some issues, so I went on Amazon to check out their headset options.At first, I was going to purchase another hi-fi open-back headphone, but Amazon recommended me these Logitech G435 headphones, which featured wireless USB connectivity.I was intrigued about what kind of quality I could get for just $80 in a wireless over-ear gaming headset, so I decided to purchase them. I had used Logitech G433 headphones in the past and was very fond of them, and I have trusted Logitech for a long time, as they have always made solid products.This headset is no exception to that quality statement.Fit:I first want to talk about the fit. These headphones are not very big. However, they are just the right size for people who have smaller to normal size heads. I, though, have a decently large head. These headphones fit very well on me, but I had to adjust them nearly all the way to their max extension. Despite this, they rest very comfortably, give my ears plenty of room inside the earcup, and are pretty much exempt from producing any fatigue due to their astonishingly light weight of just 164 grams. The only complaint I have is due to the headband, which could have used far more padding, but it suffices as it is and doesn’t cause too much discomfort.Sound:As for sound, they definitely don’t match my previous headphones, the Sennheiser HD 559. But that’s okay, because I didn’t expect them to. These headphones pack in a decent quality microphone, wireless connectivity, high quality build materials, and above-average comfort for $20 less than the aforementioned Sennheisers at MSRP.In lieu of that, these headphones sound very good for their price. They sound almost identical to the Logitech G433 headphones, with even a little bit more clarity on the low end.It is worth noting though that these headphones will not do well at cancelling out any background noise, so if that is something that is important to you, I advise you to look elsewhere.Battery & Connectivity:The listed battery life of 18 hrs is pretty accurate from my experience, which is plenty of juice for multiple days of average gaming spans. As long as you plug the headphones in to charge every few days, they should never run out of battery on you.The connectivity blew me away. There is absolutely no noticeable latency, which is already an improvement over countless other wireless gaming headsets I’ve tried featuring USB wireless connectivity, with some being almost double the price of these G435s. I will disclaim, however, that I have NOT tried these with their Bluetooth mode, nor have I tried them on any consoles that support these headphones, only my PC.Overall Verdict:I have very positive opinions about these headphones. While they are definitely not perfect, they are a very good choice for the price of $80 in my opinion, and I plan to use these headphones as my daily gaming headset until it’s time for me to move on again due to wear and tear. Good job, Logitech.

  124. For $20 you can’t beat this thing. The sound quality is actually quite good. The microphone is ok. Keep in mind this is audio plugs, The USB is used for the lights only.

  125. I have big ears, and the biggest problem I come across is sore ears after a long day of recording. While overall quality is above average on this product, the price is well worth. If you are getting the headset for the mic, it is not as sensitive as many would hope. Although my voice sounds nice on the other end, you need to have a very loud voice to talk into the mic. Luckily i have a separate mic attached to my pc.Another few issues are the audio and length of the cord. To me, the cord is fine, but if you are planning to have the pc setup somewhat farther from your sitting station, it might not sit comfortably. The audio as well is clear, but it’s base decibel volume is pretty low.Overall a good buy, it’s comfy for me. Probs will get a more expensive one in a few years though, just as long as it’s for big eared fellows like myself

  126. Grandson uses them on PS4 , by the sound of the shouts coming from the room they are working ok . Arrived promptly which saved the whole world from imploding . One happy 8 year old UPDATE apparently people can only hear him for two minutes then they need to be unplugged again . Delete one happy 8 year old . Now looking for something more reliable

  127. 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.

  128. Over the last few years I must have gone through 15+ different wireless buds for running (up to 3 hours at a time, very sweaty in all weather). For me what is important is that the buds stay in without needing adjustment mid run, they don’t loose connection and last the duration. Note I don’t need noise isolation (to be aware of traffic) or call features so can’t comment on that. These are hands down the best buds I have used for running. I even prefer to use these for running over my Samsung Buds Pro (with expensive memory foam tips)………

  129. These work great got them for my son in law for when he playing video games, that his wife( my daughter) would quit complaining of the sound. Lol. He loves them, good quality, good sound, and she says she can’t hear the games at night anymore.. I give it 5 stars all around.

  130. No ear pain ! I have that with so many over-ear headphones, but since these ones are so soft, they’re so comfortably i haven’t had any issues yet ! I don’t use the light up option often, but it’s a cute addition. The mic is ok, but since i dont use it a lot, it can be a bit annoying. They’re surprisingly light for how large they are ! The cable is nice and thick, and it came with an extension and different ends, which is super helpful ! Definitely worth the money !

  131. These do what the listing says. I originally got them to keep the noise down when the wife is sleeping but it is better than expected. The sound is better than my bedroom stereo system ( 2 2-way speakers and a subwoofer) and I can isolate what direction in-game noises come from.Big in size where I would not get them for youngsters. Very light and comfortable for an adult or nearly adult.Volume and mic controls are in a convenient location that will be about center chest for most people. Noise cancelling mic is good. I have no use for the lights on the headset and have not used them. A velcro strip is supplied to tie the usb cord with the audio cord so it isn’t just dangling down if you’re not using it.Overall a great purchase in this price range.

  132. The sound on these headphones are very clear and crisp. The headphones themselves are fairly light and the cushions on the ear pieces are really comfortable. I haven’t had any issues with the audio from games or music and even in cross-play games the sound is still superb. I would definitely recommend these.

  133. The actual headset is nice, though cheaply designed. Only problem is the delivery. It’s a few days until Christmas and they didn’t send it in a box, so my sister knew what I got her. Just a label on the headset box.

  134. Bought just to fit with the rest of my Logitech stuff but just had a complaint with the mic, I use to use a condensing mic but just became a hassle for when I clean up keep getting in the way, so I bought these to replace it but having heard the mic I was not impressed. The speaker sound nice, their comfy, light, nice head fit. But for my use the mic is not the best and has feedback and can hear the other person talk adn it got quite annoying for them obviously and it also made them hear my music when playing anywhere past 50% volume.

  135. I bought this headset for my 10 year old son, to use with his PS4 & gaming chair. The headset is very well built & the microphone on the headset is positioned well & sturdy as I bought a cheaper version that snapped easily. Overall, the headset 8s very comfortable and the sound quality is excellent!Plenty of cables included to pair with pc, ps4 etc.Perfect choice!

  136. I sent the first set back as they arrived faulty. Only one earbud was working and so they were useless. The next pair worked fine but they developed this habit where the silicone tip on the left earbud would slip off and lodge itself almost inside my ear. I managed to fish it out on a few occasions but finally I admitted defeat and packed them up to be returned. They fitted well in my ears but it was only a matter of time before the tip went right inside my ear canal and I would have to visit A&E to get it out!Sound quality of these earbuds is ok but not great. The bass is good although not that tight. It goes low and there is plenty of it I guess. There is an ok amount of detail but it’s the sound signature that is the problem. I believe the drivers are metal. Well this affects the overall quality and nature of the sound. From the midrange to the highest tones everything has a metallic edge to it. It sounds as if it has been boosted by equalisation of some kind. It’s a little unpleasant really. Overly dry and arid sounding. Their ok overall but not good enough. Not smooth, not relaxing. Don’t get me wrong they do the job but out of all the many headphones I own I did not really ever reach for them with enthusiasm. The battery life is so so but the case is well made and the phones are engineered fairly well. The tip problem though was the nail in the coffin for me and I can’t see myself going for any of these Eono phones again if they employ the same technology. Oh and the Bluetooth range is pretty poor and they can’t on occasion exhibit strange behaviours which doesn’t breed confidence. There is better out there I think.

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

  138. Don’t want to pay more than $100 to buy a expensive headset since I have lots of headset already. I am really happy to choose this camo style gaming headsets with microphonePROS:1. The headset provides good sound for gaming purposes and are comfortable to wear. Don’t worry the fybric earcup because they are compartable than you think. The mic boom seems to be solid and rotates up and down well.2. There’s a lot going on here with a long 3.5mm audio cable, a usb cable to power the lights and a plastic housing to control volume. Mic switch and headphone volume controls are cord mounted a convenient length down from the headset.3.People used to complain that I sounded like I was in a tin can and they could hear the HVAC blower with my laptop mic, now all they hear is me! I tested it with a voice recorder app, and I sound like me again rather than me on a crappy speakerphone on a freight train. The bass response of the headphones is great too, makes music and games alike come alive4. This headset is the most comfortable I’ve ever had. I work 10-12 hours a day and it’s hard finding comfortable headsets to last that long. My ears usually ache by the end of the day but not with these, I can’t even tell I’ve had them on.5. Finally the Camo style is really speical and cool. I like the understated elegance6. A Y-style spliiter adapter is included to split a plug to one voice jack and one mic jack.7. The cord is super long, very convenient for me.CONS:1. As the product page said, the USB plug is only for light, note it.Pretty gaming headset for me. Recommanded to buy it.

  139. Really light and comfortable, even when worn for 12+ hours. Only thing lacking is padding inside the ear cups.Disconnects for a second every once in a while, a little frustrating, especially during a call.Headset makes chimes, not sure what they all signify. Still haven’t figured out what one of the chimes is, since it doesn’t seem to indicate low battery or reconnecting/disconnecting.Speaking of low battery, it’s hard to tell what battery level headset is at since it doesn’t show well anywhere. Probably lasts 18+ hours? Unsure.Sound quality is ok. Comparable Astro A50 (3rd gen). Microphone isn’t as good, which is fine since I have another mic for that.Headset is plug and play, so there’s no equalizer options, even under Logitech G-Hub.It’s ok when gotten on sale. Doesn’t seem worth it full price.

  140. So I’m pretty sure you couldn’t hear a tornado with these on.. The noise cancellation is so good that my son can’t hear me yelling at him even if I’m standing right behind him.. Any hoo, definitely worth every penny and thinking about buying myself a pair so I can only hear what I want to LOL…Oh yeah my son said that they are super comfortable and that they don’t hurt his ears at all..

  141. + No complaints with the comfort, build quality or sound quality.- Unfortunately still had to return as the mic is very poor. Unpleasant to listen to and picks up huge amounts of background noise to the point where it was impossible to filter out with software.

  142. Great feeling while wearing them. Sound is awesome and mic is great. Awesome headset! BUY IT.

  143. Okay for what I need. Does exactly what it says on the packet.

  144. Just everything is amazing got a great deal when I bought it its comfortable its everything you want in a gaming headset

  145. I originally bought a set of Hamlaem Wireless Earphones on February 14th but these lasted only until March 2nd when they would not recharge. Their replacements are an official Amazon product so I am more confident of the quality of the product, though time will tell. They quickly paired up with the Bluetooth transmitter on my television and the sound quality was superior to my last abortive earphones. After just one use I am very happy and I hope not to be experiencing problems within the next 2 – 3 weeks.

  146. The reason why I went with this set of headphones is because quite simply they make decent peripherals of a reasonable standard. The other main factor in purchasing these was that they were for my 12-year-old son and he struggles when headphones are too large because he has a normal 12-year-old skull. These really do fit nicely and his comment so far has been that they are significantly more comfortable than his previous pair.

  147. The media could not be loaded.  this gaming headset was purchased for my son and is quite the upgrade from the one he was using. First impressions out of the box are that this set is rather stylish in its black and white sort of futuristic camo deco. Feels like quality and durable in hand as well. This device can be used on multiple gaming platforms as well. The sound quality is just superb to say the least and I want one now just for my music if that’s possible! These are also considered noise canceling so he can hear his squad clearly and know exactly where everyone is including the enemy enabling you eliminate them quicker. The 7.1 surround sound provides that deep bass thump and optimal sound quality for movies and games! It’s overall comfort is owed to the soft memory foam around the headband . A great headset at a budget price!

  148. Headphone bastante leve e confortável. Funcionou no momento em que conectei o adaptador wireless no notebook (Linux) sem necessitar de qualquer configuração ou driver adicional, inclusive foi setado como default pelo discord sem nem mexer. Não perde a conexão com facilidade. Andei pela casa com o mesmo e ele permaneceu conectado. O microfone é razoável, participo de diversas reuniões durante o dia e nenhum colega achou que minha voz estava com qualidade ruim. O som tem um volume razóavel com boa distribuição de graves, porém se você está atrás de algo para escutar músicas com mais fidelidade de áudio ele vai deixar a desejar. Não jogo jogos online para avaliar se o som é bom para a jogatina.

  149. 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.
