Hamswan 2.4GHz Wireless Gaming Headset

By David Deedwania


Hamswan 2.4GHz Wireless Gaming HeadsetThe HAMSWAN 2.4GHz Wireless Gaming Headset is a great option for new gamers entering competitive play. It is offered at a price of $95.99, currently on sale for $61.99 through the Amazon marketplace.

Look
The look of the headset is simple, but in this case, I really like simple. The unit is black with red accents, blue logo accents, and chrome linings around and above the ear pads. The headset features a plastic body with a smooth, matte black frame and mesh padding for the headband (red) and the ear pads (black).

Structure and Functionality
When first tried on, it was surprisingly comfortable, and I noticed that after several hours of use, it felt just as it did when I first put it on.

The chat features of the headset are exactly what you would expect from a gaming-specific pair of headphones - separate game and chat volume dials, power button, detachable microphone and toggleable mute button.

The microphone for this particular model is perhaps my favorite part of the entire headphone. It’s entirely adjustable, has a sleek rubberized feel, and can easily detach and be stowed away for non-chat headset use.

My main complaint about the headset’s button system is its layout; they are all located on the right headphone, along with the microphone, so it makes for a very cramped space when playing games. I also noticed myself fumbling around for the correct button a few times, and I imagine that would be frustrating during heated gameplay.

Sound
The sound of the HAMSWAN Gaming Headset is quite good (especially at its price point) across all platforms. I tested it on a PS4, Macbook and Xbox One, and they all sounded great. In-game audio is not quite as spatial or robust as I would like.
All in all, the HAMSWAN Gaming Headset is a great choice for gamers who want to experience higher quality chat and audio in their titles, especially for the value!
