Review: Wireless headsets from Logitech, Audio-Technica, SteelSeries, HyperX and more - TechCrunch

A wireless one that works with your computer and maybe your console as well, with a mic for calls and great sound for games and movies.

To test the headphones, I used them all for a variety of everyday tasks, from video calls to movies and music (with only minimal EQing to get a sense of their natural sound) to AAA games and indies.

The standout feature on these is, to me, a truly surprising sound with an almost disturbingly broad stage and clarity.

The dial also doubles as a button for surround mode, and next to it is a microscopic button to turn on and off the sound of surroundings.

The Cloud II’s controls are simple and effective.

The volume dial, tied directly to the system volume, is superb: grippy, with smooth motion and just the right amount of friction, and just-barely-there clicks.

As exciting as the SteelSeries sound is to me, the Cloud IIs seem more like what people expect, and are $50 cheaper!

The sound is definitely gaming-forward, with a definite emphasis on the low end and a very central, present sound that was a lot like the Cloud II.

The volume dial is nice and smooth, though the “clicks” are really far apart.

The sound of the Logitech is big and very clear, with almost a reference feel in how balanced the bands are.

The controls are about on par with the Cloud II’s: a nice frictiony volume wheel controlling system volume, a nice mic toggle button and a fairly meaty on-off switch you’re unlikely to trip on purpose.

Also like the Cloud IIs, there is no rotation to the earcups, making them less comfortable to me than the ATs and SteelSeries, and Logitech’s cheaper G-733s.

Their sound is definitely gaming-focused, with extra oomph in the lows and mid-lows, but music didn’t sound overly shifted in that direction.

The Razers look heavy but aren’t — it varies day to day but I think they’re definitely competing for “most comfortable” with the A-Ts and SteelSeries.
