Today I am reviewing the HUHD 2.4GHz Wireless Gaming Headset. This is a headset that can be used on games consoles and PC’s. For my review, I have used a PC. It’s wireless meaning it can be used without worrying about dragging a wire behind.
Listed below are bestselling HUHD which satisfy both affordability and quality.
The design of these, in my opinion, is slightly off putting, don’t get me wrong, they look nice, but they are very much plastic that basically gives them a cheap overall finish, even the chrome trim around the earcups is plastic and in my opinion chrome and plastic do not mix together. I will, however, admit they are quite comfortable thanks to thick padding around the earcups and a thick padding on the inside of the headband.
These headphones also lack a folding ability, which means storing them efficiently is a pain. It also means if you feel like carrying them around for whatever reason, you will have problems.
The left earcup is bare of any buttons or ports while the right is home to several, which are as follows:
- Charging port
- Aux out port for game controllers
- Microphone port for the detachable microphone
- Power button
- Pairing/microphone mute button
- Volume dial
- Microphone volume dial
There’s also a small box unit that acts as a wireless transmitter and receiver for the headphones. This unit connects to your console or PC using either the included MicroUSB cable or the included Optical cable. My PC lacks optical output so for me I had to use the MicroUSB port. The box is also made of plastic like the headphones and is fairly light.
The detachable microphone is essentially a flexible arm that can be folded inwards or outwards, if you try to fold it upwards or downwards it just flicks back to the center. It uses a typical 3.5 mm male connection to connect to the 3.5 mm female port of the headphones.
Since these are wireless they need some sort of wire-free power option and in this day and age, that is known as a battery. This headset has a battery that is capable of product up to 12 hours of playback from a single charge, of course, this is dependant on several factors such as volume used. I have managed to get roughly 12 hours with a low volume and about 9 with high volume so there’s a difference there.
At first, for some reason setup was a pain in for me, I had done as the manual said and had the transmitter box connected to my PC and the headphones powered on, but the set was still not showing up in audio devices on Windows 10. After a bit of time messing about I finally got it to work, even though my wired headsets show up straight away.
The audio produced by these headphones is actually quite good, audio is clear and crisp and is presented quite well, however I did notice some slight tinny-ness to the audio which is a slight disappointment.
The microphone is not as good as it could be, I often had times where people couldn’t hear me very well or the microphone was producing a crackling noise. When it did work it was ok, but not for long enough periods of time.
In all honesty, I can’t possibly recommend this for any serious gamer out there, but it you just want to listen to music then it’s an ok headset, otherwise I’m not a fan of it. It looks nice but feels cheap thanks to the plastic construction. The overall audio quality is fantastic but I did experience some tinny-ness is certain songs.
DISCLAIMER: I received this product for free in return for my honest and unbiased review. This has had no effect on my overall opinion of the product.
