The Arctis 5 headset we used is the original 2016 version, not the current 2019 revision. The newer revision adds extra ear cushioning, offers a couple EQ updates (and DTS Surround X 2.0, although the legacy Arctis 5 also received this via a software update), and has minor aesthetic changes. We welcome these updates, but they don't change our overall verdict on the headset. Apologies for the confusion!

@Berg Globus well we said we dont want the immigrants bc we dont have space for them, dont have money for social stuff, work is kinda hard to find.. and generally Poles are territorial.. we like immigrants but on a small scale, to much shit happened in history. I personally dont give a frick.. for me it doesnt matter if we had them or not and stuff, bc i want to live somwhere else, govrment is ruining this coutry year after year and our president is a fkn joke.. And to add to that... here people still react like crazy, or scared when they saw a man with different skin colour.. maybe not the youngest of us.. but people like 35 and up.. its always so weird..

@M Ξ P i KI was thinking about going abroad and studying in Poland (I'm German) and tbh it kinda turned me off. Some of our city's cut their relationship to polish city's because they where openly homophobic but yeah. I know that not all polish people are like that. Tbh looking around Europe there isn't so much good anymore. At least Hungary, Poland and Holland/Netherlands have right winged governments, the rlly right winged party in Germany is rising and most European countries support what frontex is doing and ignoring the help that immigrants need while sayin "Our European Values Are So Good And We Really Value Human Rights"

As a regular hs60 surround user i can confirm that in this version the sound cuts out on both the microphone and headphones.Although for me it doesnt play white noise,its juat blank.

Spend an extra $30 and pick up the Logitech g733 Got them recently and really enjoy them. Mic is good, audio fidelity is much better than expected, bass is a bit muddy but still good.

I own the Corsair HS70 Bluetooth Headset and that audio bug where you get white noise is in those as well. IDK why it does that. I went out and bought the Corsair Virtuoso Headset for like 160 buck and i don't get that audio issue. But yeah, it happened a lot for me. At least like once a week. Sometimes twice. It must be something with Corsair's HS series of headsets.

Beanie used during a headphone review.... Even purely B-roll, still not good. Shows a lack of professional discernment. "If you have larger ears..." (B-roll ears completely covered by a thick beanie) I basically learned these examples are not good for gaming by any means.

So my headset mic blew after watching this video!!!! CONSPIRACY!!!!! So after watching this video 3 more times, I bought the HS60 Haptic, and WOW Ive never had headphone that did this!

I'd go for the Corsair Void Elite over the Haptic, it's just straight up a better performing headset for pretty much the same price (30% better high range frequency for just a 5 dollar increase)

I would recommend the Sennheiser Game One. These are actual Sennheiser headphones they slapped a mic on. They're open back and have a great sound quality for a rather cheap gaming headset. They are also very comfortable and light, but still robust.

I have some iTeknic IK-BH002 that were given to me as a present by my sister, but I have that same problem, where if I try to use the microphone on the headset, it only has an option to use it as hands free, and if I dont change the audio output from bluetoth stereo to hands free it just stops working the sound, and as you can guess the hands free audio output is so bad that it looks like you are listening trough a 1980s fix phone speaker. I wish I could see better what you did to configure those headphones to use microphone to, at 5:56 , just to see if I can do the same with mine.

I find it mildly interesting that the cloud 2s got an "exceedingly mediocre" from you guys and were the favorite cheap headset of Dank Pods... Wish you had some H.E.A.R.S like my dude so we could compare with our own subjective opinion... Like obviously there's problems with that compression and filtering through whatever the audience has for audio, but I maintain that it's useful anyway

Best gaming head(phones), cheapest to most expensive in a reasonable budget: Philips SHP9500, ATH-AD700X, DT990pro, AKG K712. All have pros and cons. Get a modmic or a desktop mic and enjoy being able to actually hear shit.

I was waiting for the disclaimer at the end advising to not buy any "Gaming" headset because they are all built like shit and the MIC is always garbage. Buying a gaming headset is like buying a single-use kitchen appliance. Total waste of money in 95% of cases. Spend your money better by buying a sub $100 audio grade set of headphones with a separate MIC which there are plenty to pick from on the cheap both to plug directly into the headset 3.5mm jack, attach via magnet or a table MIC. At least this way you can use the headphones for more than just games, instead listen to some music or watch movies with and you'll get sound that isn't ass.
