Final Thoughts:

While we look back at this sleek and stylish headset, a few talking points come to mind. First this headset is well designed and has a very clean and nice look to it while still being very light in weight as compared to most headsets. It also has a nice sturdier than normal cord with the inline control unit that in my opinion should be on every headset. The cushioning of the ear pads and the headband are very nice and comfy though the one downside I see is that the ear pads should really be made larger and turned into ear cups that surround the whole ear.

On the performance of the headset, it really did have some fantastic sounding audio quality but there were some downsides. The treble levels and voices sounded muffled and although adjusting the systems levels did help a little, but it was still noticeable that the treble was muffled.

The other issue was, that depending on what was being listened to, be it certain types of music or sounds from gaming, the bass would sometimes be overpowering. All in all this headset was pretty good for the price but I think if these few issues were fixed it could have been one fantastic headset for the price and really have given higher priced headsets a run for their money.

Pros:

  • Light weight
  • Sleek and Stylish
  • Inline volume and mic control unit
  • Soft and comfy headband and ear pad cushioning
  • Noise canceling ear pads
  • Clear microphone quality
  • Price

 

Cons:

  • Ear pads should have been made into ear cups
  • Treble and voice levels seem a little bit muffled
  • Bass, depending on situations, can be over powering
  • Soft/distant sounding mic volume with slightly elevated tone/pitch
