Edifier never fail to surprise me when it comes to audio and gaming headphones are a hard one to get right for an overall experience in my point of view you see I like to be able to just move from one thing to another be it my console or laptop if the quality is good on both aspects well let me tell this Edifier have got this one right end of story not only from a gaming perspective but listening to music or even watching youtube or netflix these headphones are simply unbelievable and at the price they come in at.
First off the build quality is good albeit plastic is the main material used but its good and will last and when it comes to comfort the headphones have over ear cups which isolate much of the outside world anyway but the soft cups are nice on the skin and the same applies to the soft leatherette headband.
There is no controls on the cups which is great but an inline box if you will that has it all in one place there is also some software you can download which might suit some and handy to have it available at hand should you need it.
The inline control is great and has a trick up its sleeve and I love it.. First we have the power on/off then the volume up/down, then a mute button on top but underneath that the magic red switch brings this headset to life and whatever you might be listening to as it activates the vibrate mode and if I dare say it adds some more bass on max volume.
Playing games on with this on really imersifies the experience and gives clear sound and great dynamic range its really good the same applies to both XBOX and PS4 with great accuracy for noise in all directions, Now being honest I am not much of a gamer but I played for a few hours and this simply enhances the overall experience and the mic is great for playing online or streaming this also applies to laptop gaming the experience is just enhanced and immersive.
Going off topic to what the headphones are designed for you are also in for a treat for listening to music or streaming from your laptop, it gets loud,just how I like it and the software up that volume to just how I like it so if you want loud you get loud much louder than I expected this is what I meant earlier by switching tasks from gaming consoles to laptop and also if you have a smartphone with USB OTG and you have an adapter the same applies here so you could use these as a one stop shop for your audio needs and look good doing it with the LED lights on either side which is a cool effect especially in a dark environment which by the way is not intrusive and just right it would be better if you had the ability to change the one colour you are given but it is what it is and not a dismissal of the product but some would like to be able to customise to a certain level.
Overall for the money you shell out on these which will vary by country you are talking approx 60-100 euro you can’t really go wrong, I have tested these both the gaming experience and music experience as some like to save on multiple pairs and like the option to see what is on offer and what is affordable and these are an easy recommendation for the money and up there with headsets double or more the price. Trust me I have tested enough to tell the difference between cheap and cheerful and overpriced junk and a good pair of headphones for you hard earned money and these are just that…
