The BEST Wireless Gaming Headset (and the worst...)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This video isn't out on Youtube yet, but for our Floatplane subscribers, here's the EQ tunes for you!


Unfortunately I'm mostly unable to export them for you guys to use directly, so you'll just have to recreate it from these images. The Equalizer APO one however I can export, and I've provided it below.

Just as mentioned on the Floatplane comments is that we miss the microphone samples. I now see it as a headphone review instead of a headset review.


Also maybe off topic. I see that these headsets are rather expensive. Maybe it is smart to do some kind of Headset vs Headphones combined with a dedicated microphone setup that is affordable.

how can I balance my own personal headphones? (i got a razer kraken 7.1 v2)

A great starting place is to hop over to rtings.com and find your headset - Here's the profile for the V2 - https://www.rtings.com/headphones/1-3-1/graph#499/3161

Now either using equalizer APO or whatever included EQ Razer has, try equalizing the levels by adjusting up or down Db according to that graph and where your adjustment points are, you're essentially trying to flatten that curve. Now that will do a great job out of the box, but fine tuning can be done by ear to improve further, as there are manufacturing variances between sets.

This came just in time, with this whole staying at home thing I was getting tired of having to do work conference calls and gaming with friends on my BT headset where you're limited to the telephone quality "handsfree" sound when you want to use the microphone...


Just got my G935s, a bit big and heavy but they sound absolutely gorgeous indeed, microphone is good and versatility is great, cool that you can mix the 3.5mm input and wireless. 


Given EQ sounds perfect, just make sure you haven't enabled surround when you want it effective.
