This is specifically for the Bengoo/Kotion Each G9600 Camouflage Headset:
The quality of this headset for the price is near unbeatable. Headset feels very durable/kid proof. It’s made of ABS plastic with metal inserts on the adjustable band. The ear cushions on these are breathable mesh pillow cushions and they are extremely comfortable. I have an absolutely huge head, and these fit just right. My ears fit entire into the cushions, so this is an “over ear” headset. As such, they do an alright job of cancelling ambient noise. Because the cushions are mesh and not pleather, you can hear a little more around you. I actually like that but some people may not. They do not leak a bunch of noise though. The integrated volume control and mute switch work very well. The cord is extra long (8ft) and it’s braided and color coordinated the entire way.
The headset is very lightweight, which makes it great for long play sessions. Clamping pressure is just about right. Again my head is huge so the fact these are comfortable on my head is a good indicator of their comfort. They are adjustable and mine have to be all the way expanded. These also come with a braided and color coordinated PC splitter if you game on a desktop.
The USB only powers the LED lights, and they are blue. Therefore, the USB does not have to be plugged in, but is a nice touch if you’re into that sort of thing.
Microphone quality is very good and the noise canceling seems to work very well on it. Only time echo was noticed was when I had a fan pointed directly at me and volume was at 100%. I’ve been through numerous $70-$100 headsets in the past 4 weeks trying to find one for console gaming that didn’t have an awful microphone. This is the first pair I’ve found that doesn’t echo everything anyone says, and it’s the cheapest of all of them. It’s pathetic how garbage the mics are on Hyper X, Turtle Beach, and Nacon Rigs.
Sound quality is great. They tend to be treble heavy and medium on the bass, but for games like Fortnite that’s exactly what you want. Overall, these sound pretty clear and for me, work good for both music listening and gaming. Not gonna lie, the sound quality is impressive for the price point.
My one minor complaint is that on my first pair, the fabric on the cord started to fray with minimal use. It wasn’t frayed too bad however, and when I contacted the company (it was past return date) they promptly sent me a replacement for no cost at all. Their customer service was absolutely excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy this brand again and in fact even ordered a second pair for a Christmas gift.
