General Thoughts:

This headset is close to perfect, really enjoy using it, but there are a few things that could definitely use some improvements.

It seems odd that they wouldn’t put more filters and volume on the microphone, as it’s a very important part of a gaming headset. Still good, but could be much better. The overall sound quality could be improved a bit too (for the mic and headphones).

I briefly mentioned it, but for wireless headphones, these have almost no delay, which is great for gaming. It wasn’t a scientific test, I just rapped to a song with two mics and headphones and these were keeping up with my main set up.

I didn’t test battery life, it’s probably over 12 hours, but it’s just so easy to change with the second battery, you don’t have to worry about charge.

I’m going to be using these as my main for now, so I can recommend them, if you can afford them! Definitely not cheap.
