Reviews around gaming (4.33 of 5)

  • A solid gaming headset that I can't recommend enough
  • I don't know about other products that are cheaper or more expensive, but if you want a quality gaming headset that won't deplete over time this is probably the best for the price.
  • All in all, the best gaming headset for any gamer, casual or serious, with a very reasonable price tag of $100.
  • Without a doubt THE best gaming headset you can buy for under $100
  • One of the Best if not the best gaming headset only problem is that the earpads are really uncomfortable(2 hours and you can feel pain because of the drivers touching your ears) and smell awful right out of the box.best way to fix this is to buy brainwavz earpads which fixes all of this headset's problems
