I’m starting the review of AmazonBasics gaming headset for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac. They sound great, they’re comfortable, the microphone is perfect, and they’re affordable. What more could you ask for? At that price, almost nothing.
When we unboxed the AmazonBasics gaming headset we found 4 elements:
- The headphones themselves
- The manual remote control for volume, EQ and microphone.
- Mini-jack cable with mini volume control and microphone on/off.
- USB cable to connect the hand control to the PC/MAC/PS4/Xbox One
What a surprise that a fairly inexpensive headset has this sound so far above its range. To give you an idea, they sound remarkably better than the previously tested Logitech G332. The sound is very balanced, the bass is present and round. The midrange are right , if they had more punch it would be to force all the gamer buddies to buy them. The definition is good and the stereo image is wide. In sound, they don’t lag behind the great Corsair HS70 wireless (my favourite and the ones I use every day), but they are way ahead of them when it comes to microphone pickup: the AmazonBasics gaming headset picks up the voice with a body that looks like a “singer’s microphone”. For my taste, I would have remembered in bass, since the voice in gaming does not require so much presence.
I don’t propose EQ (equalization) because the manual desktop control has 4 presents of which 2 sound really good. They are identified by these icons: ♬(EQ quite neutral) and 🎮 (EQ with bass and treble boost).
While wireless gaming headsets are always preferable, the AmazonBasics gaming headset takes advantage of the cable to provide manual desktop control to level the volume, mute the microphone, and switch the EQ between your presets immediately. In contrast, they don’t have their own app for setting up your EQ presets, a possible surround effect, or a relevant point: to activate self-perception on the microphone. It’s always annoying not to hear your own voice through the mic and only naturally pick it up with the physical headset lock.
This aspect also surprised me. I’m used to mid-range gaming helmets having one of their weakest points in comfort because of budget cuts in materials. However, these headphones are really comfortable because of their nicely padded, synthetic-leather ear cushions and because they don’t press on the head any more than necessary. They have a good horizontal rotation of the ear cups. Vertical rotation is somewhat lacking.
Finally, the construction is like 90% plastic, they are light, and the design, although it is a very subjective point, is a little rough or coarse. In places like whathifi they use the adjective “bulky”.
If you’ve come this far, looking at the price tag, it’s obvious that the AmazonBasics gaming headset is a RECOMMENDED PRODUCT by stereocheck.com. The sound is great, the microphone even better, they are very comfortable and lightweight. But there are very few buts: almost completely plastic materials and no software application of its own to activate the self-perception in the microphone.
- Very good sound quality
- Wide stereo image
- Excellent microphone pickup
- Very comfortable
- Highly padded and pleasant cushions
- Almost completely made of plastic
- No own APP to activate microphone self-perception
