Gaming Headset Personal Reviews

  • Good mornin. Bumili ako nung Hyper X Cloud Stinger. So kinabit ko sya sa front panel jack sound/mic. Mahina ung capture ng boses ko dun sa front panel. May kailangan ba akong settings sa realtek? Na disable ko naman ung front panel detection pero mahina pa din ung boses ko. Any advise would be appreciated. TY

  • Ok ba yung razer hammerhead v2? Earbuds lang talaga gusto ko, if not ok, I have ~5k budget if may good suggestions kayo.
  • maraming ok na earbuds/IEM na hindi "gamer brand"

    off topic na ata pag usapan sa thread na to ang IEMs pero wag mo sayangin pera sa razer hammerhead.
  • I have very very basic setup of headset with mic and webcamera from SVEN, it's not that well known, but good company. I see how you got it all fine, but I am more than comfortable with my headset in every game I play, just be carefull with sounds on your ears.

    Meron ako nyan, problem mahina yung mag pick up ng voice yung mic kahit todo na yung gain. Yung earpiece nya masakit sa tenga kasi metallic. Better find other choices.
  • Mga boss ano po magandang headset na maayos ang mic mga 4k po budget.

    many thanks po


    Razer kraken pro v2

  • Thanks buti nagtanong muna ako bago ako bumili, stick nalang ako sa audiophile earphones siguro dahil IEM talaga gusto ko.
  • Plantronics Commander maganda :)

    @ JLsantiago...
    Try mo dito sa Lazada. I got the same brand for my Superlux HD668B. Swak yun fit.
  • Malaki kaya ang sound quality difference for example ng Corsair HS50 sa Steelseries Arctis 5 2019 Edition or something with that price range to justify spending more? I prefer those two kasi I'm also planning it to use on my mobile device and the design does not scream "gaming".

    Using the Arctis 3 2019 edition. Kung for mobile gaming lang, okay na po yan. Less than php4K lang po ang Arctis 3. Am not a fan of Corsair headphones so don't have input here.
  • Madami may ayaw sa Steelseries base sa nababasa ko sa reviews/forums. Di daw kasi maganda tunog unless iheavily tweak mo yung EQ sa software nila.

    Yung Corsair HS50 isa sa mga best bang for the buck ata sya. AFAIK 2500 php lang to. Ang tanging alam ko na pangit dito is yung microphone - which you really shouldnt expect to be good at that price point.
  • Salamat sa input pero nabili ko na ang Arctis 5 2019. So far my honest initial review is hindi ganun kalakas ang bass pero maganda naman ang quality overall, medyo na disappoint lang ako kasi parang manipis ang bass, I'm just comparing it to my Logitech Z337 speakers kasi I have never tried gaming headset before and the only headset I had before was an unknown Armageddon Molotov 3 which were around 1k php lang at parang malakas lang ang bass ng kaunti ang Arctis 5. Hindi pa ako sure need to listen and test both more.

    I give 10 for comfort, I could probably use this for hours and hindi sasakit tenga ko and I have big ears. I tested the mic and it sounded good which I will use for Skype calls for work. I also give 10 for design, it really looks good and I could definitely use it as a secondary mobile heaphone.

    Additional test after 24 hours:
    The Arctis 5 sounded much better when using the 3.5 mm jack connected via a splitter 3.5 mm that I connect via the front audio jacks of my PC. When I connect via USB, bumaba ang sound quality at nag tunog "lata" especially when I test with heavy bass music and watch a Dota 2 match in game, Ano kaya solution dito? Nakakaapekto kaya ang Realtek Audio drivers pag naka connect sa USB ang arctis 5 kasi pag analog connection Realtek ang ginagamit nya.

    After 15 minutes:
    I found out na dalawa pala ang Sound option nya Headphone (Game) and Headset Earphone (Chat). I selected the Headphone (Game) because of the Game label yun pala kaya hindi maganda quality at tunog lata. I switched it to Headset Earphone and now the sound quality is what I expected of this PC. Isang araw ko din tong ginamit na low quality sound kaya na dismaya ako. LOL

  • @imscythe

    Mahina talaga sa bass yung Arctis. Napansin ko rin na mahina yung volume niya, I have to crank it up to 70% in windows.
  • @seanok

    Yun din napansin ko, mahina bass. At least now I know na hindi malayo difference ng sound quality ng cheaper headphone sa more expensive gaming headset. Yung Armageddon headset ko mas malakas pa ang bass lalo na sa music na pinapakinggan ko sa spotify. Regarding naman sa volume I notice that the Headset Earphone (Chat) is more louder and full than Headphone (Game) kaya yung former ang ginagamit ko.

    In the future, bibili na lang ako ng headset na same price range ng Armageddon or hanggang sa price ng Corsair HS50 kasi parang halos wala namang difference sa sound quality. I don't care about RGB, all I care is sound quality and comfort. Sa comfort excellent talaga ang Arctis 5.
  • Nasobrahan din sa comfort yung arctis, yung clamping force masyadong maluwag.

    Bought mine in the US for $99 when it first came out. Ngayon ang ginagamit ko pag hindi ko need ng comms is a headphone.
  • Para sa akin tama lang ang force, halos hindi mo pansin na may headset ka.

    I tinkered with Windows 10 Sound settings and found out that Headset Earphone (Chat) playback had Loudness Equalization checked as default sa Enhancements section kaya pala mas malakas sa Headphone (Game) playback. So I switched back to Headphones (Game) as default audio playback. I configured Steelseries Engine and turned on DTS Headphone X V2 and increased Bass Enhancement to Low and now the songs I listen in Spotify sounded much better, in fact maganda na ang quality nya. I didn't turn DTS Headphone because a lot of people even reputable tech reviewers said that not using it sounded much better pero sa akin kabaliktaran ang experience.
  • Baka dahil 2019 yang arctis mo kaya nag improve na siguro yung clamping. Yung sakin kasi parang malalaglag pag nag nod ka ng konti.
