Packaging:

This is not something I always talk about, as most packaging is fairly basic and not worth writing about. The packaging with this headset though is stunning. Instead of a typical cardboard box, this one comes with a gorgeous leather effect box, that is coated from top to bottom in a brown color faux leather material, the only cardboard used here is the slip on product description card. Upon on opening the box, you will be greeted by the headset which itself looks stunning. Also included in the box is a manual, a warranty card and a pouch to carry the headset in.

The box shows that the company has really gone all out to make this headset scream ‘smart’ from the instant you first grab the box. It’s a very nice touch and what I love most about it is that you don’t get this sort of commitment from most of the manufacturers of headsets in this price range and even some from the more expensive ranges.

Xiberia T19 Surround Sound Gaming Headset Review

Design and comfort:

With a strong stainless steel finish and red glowing LED rings, this headset really does have a premium look and finish to it, which just destroys the design of many other headsets I have used in this price bracket.

The outer band is constructed from a touch and very thick stainless steel that feels very sturdy in hand. Below the top part of this band is a leather headband that has the Xiberia branding stamped into it. The headband is very comfortable. even during long periods of use.

Xiberia T19 Surround Sound Gaming Headset Review

Each earcup has a thick leather padding that is extremely comfortable, while also been large enough to sit on my ears with no issues at all. On the outside of each earcup is a LED light ring that glows red, these can be turned on or off by using a dedicated button on the in-line control box. The left earcup is home to the detachable microphone, which can be bent into many positions and even moved closer to your mouth. The microphone is easy to remove and reconnect. It can also be turned on and off from a dedicated microphone button located on the in-line control box. the microphone has a small red LED ring, this turns on to tell you the microphone is active and turns off again when you deactivate the microphone.

This headset doesn’t have the normal manual head adjustment you find on other headsets, instead, it has an automatic adjustment method that works as soon as you place the headset on your head. This works using two lots of metal wire that are connected to the headband from the outer band. This is so much more convenient as it has allowed me to place the headset on without having to waste time adjusting it first, this means you can jump on your PC and straight into the action without having to mess around. It also ensures that the best level of comfort can be found as quick as possible.

At two meters long the cable isn’t as long as other gaming headsets I won, which are typically 3 meters long. This is a slight issue for me as my PC sits under my desk. The headset I was using before had a 3-meter cable, which allowed me to have the cable running up behind the desk while using the headset and when not in use I could place it next to my monitor on a dedicated stand. Unfortunately with the T19’s I have had to have them sat beneath the desktop on a hook while having the cable run up from the PC and under the desk, this means the cable gets in the way a lot and when not in use I have to tuck it away behind the PC so that I don,t catch the cable with my chair wheels. This won’t be an issue for everyone and to be honest, it’s not a major issue for me, but it is an irritation.

Slightly down the cable is a plastic control box, which admittedly compared to the rest of the headset feels a bit cheap, but none the less it works and does it job. It has a volume dial, a button for the microphone, a button for the LED light rings and lastly a button that activates and deactivates the vibration mode, which is used to enhance the bass produced.

The cable is coated with a thick rubber tubing that is decorated with red crossing lines over a black background. This isn’t like the usual rubber tubing used on headsets as this feels much stronger and a lot more durable.

Since the cable has a USB end, you aren’t able to use the T19’s on devices such as smartphones, so if that’s what you plan on getting these for you will have to look elsewhere.

Audio and microphone quality:

The T19’s are plug and play, which means they can be used instantly as there’s no need to install any software. There is software available if you need it, which can be downloaded from here. I chose to download the software, although I was able to use the headset right away.

The first thing I always do when using any type of audio equipment is see what’s it’s like with music. That was no exception for the T19’s and I instantly fired up YouTube and started listening to songs. I was blown away instantly. The audio is clear and crisp with no issues at all. The bass is brillaint and the levels are great. Overall the audio is brilliant, so good, I didn’t think it could get any better, that was until I pressed the vibration button on the in-line control box. This instantly created an extra level of bass that blew my mind and had me dancing along while sat in my PC chair.

The next test involved some gaming on a popular FPS game. The audio produced was brilliant the first time around and still is now. I was able to hear other players sneaking up behind me and avoid their attempts on my virtual life. The surround sound feature really came in handy for me here and is a feature I now often wonder how I managed without.

The microphone works a charm. I have used it for gaming and Skyping. Both of which it handled really well. My contacts were able to hear me quite well. The microphone got my voice out clearly with no static noises or other issues.

Overall:

The T19’s are a very impressive gaming headset. The presentation was the first thing to blow me away, followed by the headset itself of course. The audio produced by the T19’s is brilliant and gets even better when you push that vibration button. The microphone works a charm and lastly the design is fantastic. These feel solid and look really nice.
