We all love playing games on the Xbox in our house, and the children also play games on their laptops and phones, but sometimes the sound from these games can just be annoying with the same repetitive music or gibberish “talking” some of the characters involved seem to make. There are times where you just want to sit and relax, possibly read a book, and not have to listen to it whilst the children are playing their favourite games. For that reason we have headphones that can be used if and when needed for playing games and we have just been trying out the Edifier GX High-Fidelity Gaming Headset.
Edifier are experts when it comes to speakers, headphones and earbuds and over the years I have tried out several of their different products and have always been impressed (you can read my reviews here).
Gaming headsets seem to be much more popular this year and the Edifier GX High-Fidelity Gaming Headset lives up to Edifiers usual quality and style that offers truly immersive audio and is compatible with PC, Smart Phone, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and other gaming devices.
The Edifier GX High-Fidelity Gaming Headset features:
- New 50mm titanium diaphragm drivers delivering crystal-clear sound with Hi-Res audio
- Rolling volume control, retractable microphone, and RGB lights for a high-tech look and feel
- High quality headband with soft leatherette ear cups for all-day comfort
- 96kHz/24 bits decoding for natural sound and total immersion in game/music mode
- Noise-cancelling chip with dual mics isolating you from unwanted noise for better clarity
- Three types of interfaces: compatible with PC, Laptop, Smart Phone, Pad, PS4 and other gaming devices
With the following specifications:
|Driver unit||Φ50mm dynamic Unit|
This gaming headset offers RGB lighting on the earcups, a retractable microphone, rolling volume controls, soft over-ear leatherette earpads and three interfaces to make them more versatile; USB-C, USB, and 3.5mm – make it perfect for multiple uses; from leisurely mobile gaming to hardcore PC players.
Overall, the Edifier GX High-Fidelity Gaming Headset is the perfect accessory for any gamer. They look really good and futuristic and the customisable RGB lights look great in the dark. The RGB lighting on each ear has three different lights to choose from and when playing in a darkened room looks really funky.
They fit extremely well and the comfort of the headband and earpads is excellent, with the soft leatherette on the earpads breathable and reasonably cool. Perfect for extended wear. They are extremely lightweight and really not too noticeable when wearing them.
The controls are very simple to use as they are on the earpad, allowing you to easily switch between the gaming and music modes, and turn the LED mode on or off by tapping the button on the earpad. The volume is simple to use, no buttons to press just a rolling wheel to spin to easily adjust to the correct volume level.
They are compatible with PC, Smart Phone, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and other gaming devices, but if you are using the 3.5mm cable rather than USB the microphone will not work. The microphone only works with USB or type C cable.
Apart from comfort, the most important thing about a gaming headset is the audio quality – not just what you hear but your voice that other’s can hear. The Edifier GX High-Fidelity Gaming Headset has excellent audio on both fronts. They deliver near absolute fidelity that gamers will adore, picking up the slightest of details from the subtle footsteps of your opponent creeping along to the biggest, loudest and real-sounding explosions. The sound quality will leave you totally immersed in the game.
With dual-mic ENC noise cancellation that filters out any ambient sounds around you, gaming sounds are enhanced and voice calls are crystal clear.
With the built-in 50mm titanium driver, the Hi-Res audio certification and the 96KHz/24-bit high resolution decoding transmission together bring you a high-fidelity sound quality.
The sound quality, fit and comfort from the Edifier GX High-Fidelity Gaming Headset is excellent. The sound from the speakers and the microphone is crisp and clear and lets you lose yourself in the game that you are playing, whilst other players can clearly hear what you are saying without distortion.
An excellent set of gaming headphones that will make a perfect Christmas gift for any gamer this year.
