Got this headset and wore it for quite some time! I absolutely love it. I hope my video review is helpful to you!~ :)EDIT: I noticed a lot of people forget... please make sure you're PLUGGING the cable ALL THE WAY IN! ^_^
This was my very first HyperX Product. I was pretty hyped up to receive these! Unfortunately I did not like them at all. While they work great, the comfort is horrible. I have an average sized head and I feel like these are not able to extend enough. On top of that, you can feel the audio drivers on your ears constantly when wearing, which is an extremely hard and uncomfortable feel and the headset feels tight on my head, giving me headaches whenever I wear them. I tried contacting their support about this issue and they said they would send "new" earpieces right away. Upon receiving them, they were the exact same ones I had. I tried to open that case back up, but he strongly claimed they were different and basically would no longer help me.All I could find online is that the person either had to purchase new earcups (Not their brand) or they doubled up on the ear pads, meaning they put 2 pairs inside each other so you wouldn't feel the audio driver. Sadly, even though I don't feel those terrible drivers anymore, the headset is even more tight on my head. I have a beating headache whenever I use them.If you look it up, many people are having this problem.I am sad to say that with my first HyperX product, I had all these issues. As of this moment I'm not sure if I will look to them for another purchase. At this point it's just as if I paid for something to give me a headache, both figuratively and literally.
This headset has a lot of goods going for itself, especially at this price point - decent sounding headphones, detachable cables and mic, solid build quality, and extremely comfortable even with my extra large head. I was left disappointed, however, when it came to use with PS4 despite it sounding fine on PC. When I connected it to my PS4 controller I was treated to a set of headphones that was too quiet. After doing some research I found out this headset has an impedance rating of 65 ohms, and that the PS4 controller does not have enough power to drive the thing. Whose problem is it to fix, Sony or HyperX? Regardless, while this is a great headset, it does not work well enough out of the box with a PS4 like the product description claims.
