Battle of the Best Gaming Headsets *2020*
The BEST Wireless Gaming Headsets On The Market Today
Let the gaming wireless headset battle begin! If you’ve been considering getting a wireless headset you have come to the right place. Great video detailing the best state of the art headsets.
What a great second day of spring it’s nice to stay in so hello good people I’m Dimitri and because behind me I have razor large deck SteelSeries Corsair and HyperX so let’s see which one is best right after this it’s always a pleasure upgrading or adding new hardware to your system especially when it comes to storage like this new OC ZTR 200 drive from Toshiba it’s a great value SSD offers a nice boost in performance for boot times file transfers and just general system and work operation with cutting-edge 3d flash memory and ultra reliable controller with built-in power management consider the upgrade today with TR 200 it’s available in different capacities check it out below this work see no wires it’s amazing oh alright guys so let’s begin this one’s gonna be one epic roundup if you want to check out individual views of the headsets that we have done reviews of they’ll be linked in the description and also that’s where you’ll find links to purchase any of these bad boys and to smooth out your viewing experience the timecode for this video will be pinned in the comments so let’s go alright so let’s start with the price under $100 we only have two pairs the corsair void Pro Wireless RGB and the large stick g5 33 stepping up under $200 we’ve got the SteelSeries Octus 7 the logitech g930 3 the Razer men-of-war from 2016 and the new HyperX cloud flight is up here too at $159 and if you’ve got really big bucks to spend the Razer Thrasher ultimate will shred your wallet for sure but not as much as the SteelSeries arctas Pro Wireless with that a little bit of an insane $329 price now before we dive right in leave your predictions on let’s say who will win the headset roundup in the comments below and then come back to it after you’ve seen the conclusion now I normally don’t talk about packaging but of course the colt will appreciate the recognition plus they’re the only ones to have plastic covered the velvet material I do like Corsairs approach to simplified packaging and HyperX flight with all the cables right at the surface whereas a steel series buries all their accessories and tiny boxes and logitech is the only one to have their headset wrapped now the number of accessories kind of follows the price point they all charge via micro USB cable which is included with each headset along with some derivative of a USB dongle so either a thumb stick style or the extension style so you can expand your reach or close the distance between the headset now the Thresher ultimate comes with a hub since it’s a ps4 Edition so that’s where you plug in the optical cable and charge the headset through the hub as well a plastic headphone stem is included with some clothes resemblance to this Imperial shuttle from Star Wars not sure if that’s intentional or not while the most expensive pair the arc test Pro Wireless has all the cables and double the batteries and the control hub that’s also your receiver and a charging dock for the removable batteries so if you want a simplified wireless setup or are traveling want to minimize cable work all the pair’s with the simple USB dongle would obviously be more convenient so like the void Pro the HyperX cloud flight both large tech pairs and the Razer Manowar that has a tiny receiver actually built-in into the ear cup while on the logitech g930 3 we actually have a specific compartment inside the ear cup to store the receiver but for those that do not have any compartments you can simply tuck it away inside the ear cup like this to safely keep the receiver with the headset now build quality varies between these headsets significantly and it doesn’t necessarily follow the price point either the most robust pair is the still series arctas pro also being the most expensive with the quality metal headband aluminum hinges and everything just feels awesome the only problem is you cannot expand them because they rely on this self adjusting fabric piece and the same goes with the arc 2 7 but these have plastic hinges which are a little bit more loose and weirdly following after that would be the coarser void pro which happens to be also the cheapest pair they are nicely balanced weight wise metal hinges are not to lose and they feel like they can withstand some unnecessary force like if they drop from a table or you know if you flip them across the room the microphone toh feels cheap you know the actual arm might lose resistance over time so that’s the only negative I do like the lightweight nature of the HyperX flight the hinges feel fine but you have to be very careful with an all-plastic body and that seems to be the compromise for these because they’re super lightweight so that’s a positive and they kind of feel like that bose noise-canceling headphones too but when I’m stretching out them on the sides the plastic stretches too so just have to be careful and be cautious of their built quality the logitech g930 3 comes next with the robust plastic body that does not creak all over the place the hinges are not too loose and the extension mechanism stays in place – they’re a little bit deceiving with this metallic surface but it does play on your perception of it feeling like a high quality build the Razer Thresher ultimate is quiet light thanks to the thin metal headband and plastic everything else the hinges worry me a little bit but they shouldn’t have any issues with supporting the full weight of the headset the only thing that bothers me with the Thresher are the hinges and their corners are super sharp so if they’re around your neck they could cut you Northcutt true but scratch you and the same thing if like you put your finger there while you’re taking them off it’s not a pleasant experience unfortunately the worst build quality goes to the Razer men-of-war they are bulky plasticy hinges are super loose and actually have a history of the middle headband piece breaking because it’s not well attached and also the large stick g5 33 they just feel super cheap and the hinges have absolutely no control so the ear cups just wobble all the time and this headset has glossy sides if you like that dirty look and the only quality element is the expansion mechanism what this is going on right now now before we completely give up on headsets that have really subpar build quality I want to say that throughout my testing with these there is a balance between you know build quality sound quality comfort value features and so it’s kind of like a mixed bag there is no perfect headset in ass lineup and that’s a bit unfortunate but just keep that in mind for later in the video and so now let’s move on to comfort majority of these are awesome lightweight so you can wear them for hours until the battery dies and to no significant clamping force for any of these so my favorite would be the HyperX cloud flight with fantastic ear cup isolation extra interior padding and they also expand for larger heads no problem and fold on your neck in this nice low profile both logitech pairs have large and deep cushions awesome fit over all the g9 33 has smooth air padding all around while the newer g5 33 has this harsh bathing suit material that are super and pleasant on your skin both of them fold in your neck which are a little bit chunky on your ear cups but not uncomfortable seriously so this is the 533 hear how the sounds I could shower with this you know substitute my spongebob sponge sponge versus the 933 you may not hear the difference but I definitely feel difference the 933 is much smoother the 533 is way harsh like sandpaper on your skin which is super unpleasant by the way when it’s right by your ears now the void Pro has angular cushions so the cover my ears very well with nice pressure distribution to they fold in this non choking slim profile on your neck the round cushions on the Thresher ultimate are fine they are large and will cover your entire ear clamping force is pretty weak to avoid pressure buildup but heat concentration is present and despite being the largest headset in this round up default on my neck just fine without any mobility issues the men-of-war headset has the same round ear cup design but a tighter fit and less comfortable headband with more pressure from the top and because they fold on this angle keeping them on your neck is really uncomfortable now the artist Pro Wireless comes with deeper cushions and slightly expanded headband versus the arctas 7 but since they’re not really size adjustable it won’t be comfortable for larger heads and both of them like to choke you when placed around your neck the arced is 7 more so because of the tighter headband and so the 3 oddballs would be the 2 SteelSeries headsets and the razor Man O’War something because the razor one has problems with the headband and it’s not really comfortable when they’re on your neck while the SteelSeries is perfectly fine for smaller heads you know they’re okay for me as well but I wish I had a little bit more expansion at the bottom so that I could bring them down a little bit more if I’m wearing hat or something like that but because they choke you when they’re around your neck you know if you wear them around your neck and since they’re wireless – it’s kind of like a perfect thing to leave them on your body when even if you’re not listening to something there’s a little bit unfortunate with the SteelSeries artists Pro and the artists Evan the HyperX flight oh man what a comfortable design for on your neck just lovely moving on to features each headset has a power button and mic mute switch and the volume wheel and only the razor pairs the avoid Pro and the artists Pro have precise steps for volume all other have terrible control the G 933 has three G keys for macros like changing your EQ settings lighting or whatever else and both SteelSeries pairs include a headphone share port which is quite unique the arctas 7 has a dial for chat mix to balance voice versus in-game volume while the artists pro is the only headset with dual wireless connectivity with bluetooth support so letting you connect this to your notebook or your smartphone without the need for a USB dongle now the hub with the Thresher ultimate is bare-bones in terms of control just the power button in the front and the Dolby surround sound that I don’t understand why it’s hidden in the corner while the hub on the wireless pro lets you control your EQ mic side tone chetniks basically it’s a driver free experience that is appreciated and you have all this control even if you connect it to a ps4 alright so microphone test time so what you’re hearing now is that from the artist Pro Wireless being the most expensive one how do you think that one sounds now it’s clean there’s no noise when they stop speaking but the thing is it just sounds like there’s way too much compression going on as it tries to cancel out whatever is in the background so next up is the cloud flight I think this one has really aggressive noise compression tries to just like really mute the background and that causes the voice to be muffled not the best sounding microphone in this collection and just like lacks definition and it’s not as sharp as the other pair that you just heard what you’re hearing now is that from the large tech genus this is the oldest headset in this collection and I think it sounds the worst as well it just doesn’t have much background compression or any focal compression it just like it picks up way too much ambient stuff and doesn’t help to isolate just the voice and the voice doesn’t sound that great either so um what are you gonna do luckily the new g5 33 definitely sounds much better it still exhibits a lot of background like noise and hiss despite the trying to cancel that out but the actual vocal range is much improved versus the older g9 33 the Corsair void Pro is next so this one has really aggressive noise compression and tries to like really cancel out anything so you will have these spikes in terms of volume in terms of your speech so if you’re not speaking loud enough it will just completely cut that out so it’s not as powerful because it has that really aggressive noise cancellation the next one is the razor Man O’War which is also one of the oldest ones in the surround of and it also sounds pretty bad you can see it’s very Bumi it doesn’t have clarity in the voice and it does have really good like noise compression in terms of the background stuff but yeah it just in terms of the vocal pickup it’s not pleasant unfortunately the updated razor had said does not have any improvements in the microphone quality it still sounds very booming there is a you know aggressive background compression too but the vocal definition just completely is lacking in comparison to everything else in this roundup and finally the SteelSeries arctor 7 it’s weird because they all sound the same in terms of how much compression there is for the vocals not just for the background and there’s trying to compensate for that you know I’m guessing for like the keyboard switches and typing stuff but it really destroys the any vocal definition and range that you might expect from an actually decent microphone like the microphone on the son Heiser game one it’s been my go-to headset for games because the microphone is just so good lots of body to the sound there’s no that nasally compression that we hear on all other gaming headsets not just on this wireless stuff that we’re testing today but yeah this has been my definition of like a reference quality microphone on the gaming pair so let me know if you agree so based on that mic test which one sounded best to you I think the worst one would be the G 933 which is also the oldest one the Razr pairs have that nice lower end boost which is booming well the rest of them can sound the same they all will kind of have this nasally compression going on in the background so I’m not exactly sure which one wins so you let me know okay so in terms of sound performance they all deliver really powerful output in terms of volume so that’s not really an issue but they do have pretty different sound characteristics so if you’re looking for the best surround sound experience hands down either of the large stick pairs both create this large soundstage experience without compromising important details with incredible imaging I like feeling the audio cam like in front of you and not just in your headset and even in stereo mode you get amazing definition powerful bass control treble on both and it’s really unfortunate that the 5:33 is so flimsy because the sound and surround sound is just fantastic and adds extra points to this headset overall the next in the chain would be the HyperX cloud flight with a lot of definition precise bass heads and smooth treble and definitely one of the best within this roundup the Corsair voice Pro Wireless are satisfactory with balanced output it’s more closed off compared to the HyperX for example but with good detail presentation and bass that’s there without overstepping its boundaries now the sound signatures between the SteelSeries headset is completely different they both have awesome detail and really tight bass but the artists Evan I prefer more because on the arctas Pro while is the sound stage is slightly expanded and the treble is brighter which I prefer less and this the artists Evan is like overall a more fun signature for me both music and games and lastly that two razor pairs are the most powerful out of the bunch at 60% volume I was totally comfortable in terms of power output now the razor thresher has super harsh travel beyond 60% volume to the point of me needing to like lower it in order to hear anything and regardless of this upper boost it lacks mid-range definition and bass has left the building – in comparison to everything else that’s on the list while the men of war has a smoother treble and a more pleasant sound signature in comparison to the thresher but both these would be fantastic for FPS where you can hear every little detail and you don’t care about the rest of the spectrum range you know where you want just the really sharpness to hear everything so perhaps for competitive stuff that would be fine but I’m guessing everyone who’s be spending money on the wireless gaming headset doesn’t want to be just listening to FPS stuff but you want an all-around sound signature that would be compatible for both music movies and games and I would say the razer stuff isn’t ready to par for that in terms of the wireless signal all of these in my space are perfectly fine i am able to walk around the space go six meters away with a few walls in between without losing a signal and without hearing any quality loss in audio so in terms of battery life I think the SteelSeries arctas pro takes the win easily because of these interchangeable batteries because one of them is constantly charging inside the doc so you just simply swap them out when one dies and you never have to plug it in to charge the headset versus all others need to be plugged in for charging whereas the large tech stuff I really appreciate the battery percentage indicator in the software so you know exactly how much juice you have left and you have to plug them in versus the rest of them in like the Corsair but the Corsair stuff would give you low medium or high in terms of battery life whereas the razor thresher has no software so you cannot even check the battery life everything else can last two days and then you have to be recharging and so depending on how much you use I think I would go for about maybe 10 hours of listening a day for most of these no problem and I would have to recharge it a little bit on the third day so that gives you a little bit of an indication on how often you need to recharge so maximum I would say 2-3 days unlike good heavy use with any of these but still the artists Pro because that removable battery easily wins the battery test alright people it is conclusion time and I will give you a few of my favorites first the HyperX cloud flights so they’re super comfortable I can wear them for hours they have amazing isolation and sound quality is incredible they are driverless so you don’t have to think around stuff it just it is what it is but it is a pensive at the hundred sixty bucks so it slightly cheaper options where the cheapest option in this roundup would be the corsair void pro at $80 i’m overall impressed with this the only crappy thing is the boom arm for the microphone it feels kind of flimsy and cheap but in terms of comfort sound quality range and battery life really good stuff as long as it turned off the RGB you’ll be fine the game for at least two days but my surprising pick would be the oldest out of this bunch logitech g930 3 not exactly sure why large tech went ahead to replace the really good material that they’ve had there with something that is from a bathing suit on the newer models but here the sound quality is incredible for Wireless and like really powerful not punchy but like really tight bass really good detail you know treble not too harsh the microphone quality on here is actually the worst out of the bunch but as long as my teammates can understand me I’m fine and this is the only headset ever which I’ve actually enjoyed surround sound with but it’s awesome and this would be like a really good dedicated gaming headset I definitely want to give SteelSeries a shout out with the artists Evan I think this is the better headset versus the artist Pro Wireless and if you guys want to see a complete head to head let me know in the comments below but this one sounds better to me and I don’t really care so much about the the really big hub there with the interchangeable batteries so to me this would be a better value and it’s significantly cheaper the only thing is still series have updated the padding and the actual headband on the pro to be a little bit more comfortable versus the artists 7 now in terms of the razor stuff it’s good to see they’ve changed the design of the thresher to be a little bit more distant from the Man O’War so it’s more durable but in terms of sound quality I feel like they went a little bit too much on the brightness like it’s a really sharp headset so if you’re into that definitely check them out in terms of the fit it’s one of the better in this collection and the man-of-war surprisingly still sounds pretty good for being a 2016 release it’s only the the frame itself is really bad and you can up online as to why the top headband just keeps breaking because the design is not exactly the best but the raiser section here you know if you want to maintain loyal then the Razer thresher would be my recommendation alright guys so that is it for this epic roundup let me know which one of these you would pick if you are on the market for a wireless gaming headset in the comments below as always make sure to subscribe and follow us on social media check out this other relevant content and also don’t forget to let me know which one of these sounded the best in the microphone quality because to me the kind of all sounded a little bit the same with one of them a little bit poor I can’t think with so many headsets on me guys I’m Dimitri thanks so much for watching we’ll see you in the next video this work.
BEST Gaming Headset With The Unfair Advantage
hi this is Mike from Mike’s unboxing reviews and how-to and today we’re gonna be taking a look at the Turtle Beach Elite Atlas keep watching to find out more okay on today’s video we’re going to take a look at these amazing headphones now these are from Turtle Beach these are the elite atlas now these are top-of-the-line headphones for eSports gaming listening to music whatever is you want on your PC I’m actually seriously considering using these for when I’m doing my video editing so when on video editing if there’s distractions whatever going on it’s actually quite difficult to concentrate sometimes and if you’re a family man like myself then you appreciate you’ve got other things and how if you’ve got your cat you’ve got your dogs you’ve got your kids you’ve got your wife all the other things all the other distractions so sometimes you actually need that extra little bit of clarity and to kind of shut yourself off a little bit just to get things done whoever last game in video editing researching listening to music whatever it is these hopefully we’re gonna fit the bill now this go through some one aspects of these first of all from the box itself so we’ve got multi-platform compatibility so as it says on the front of the box also works great with Xbox one ps4 Nintendo switch and your mobile but they’re really intended for PC gaming so eSports all that kind of stuff and these are effectively going to give you that kind of competitive edge whilst gaming things like Counter Strike I’m a long time player Counter Strike and being able to hear people in the distance coming towards you the reloading of a gun footsteps all that kind of thing you can always get that kind of clarity from regular desktop speakers or even some headsets or headphones so these are going to go the extra mile with some really amazing looking drivers I have out a quick sneak peek at these the drivers and these things look absolutely phenomenal and on the other side of it for communicating with your team as well if you play an online match is again eSports all that kind of thing the microphone on this is something else it’s got that I like a clear speak or true speak technology built into it so it sounds really super clear but it’s a very precise and crisp microphone same for giving out directions or asking for help for your team that kind of thing it’s got a really really clear signature to it which we’ll be taking a look at a little bit later in the video so I’ll put some b-roll into that so you can actually hear what it is actually like so this is with it pretty close to my mouth so let’s move it slightly up and then if you were trying to maybe get a slightly more distance to your sign recording so I’m looking at the levels here see if you move it away but you can set it to wherever you personally prefer it’s bisa if you don’t want it block in your face you can actually have it there and still be seen on the camera and actually step in my career and pick out your voice really clearly it’s like back to mic so go back to the specs so we’ve got glasses friendly designed so if you are optically challenged like some of us are especially as you get older the pads on the side of these they’re really really deep thick foam pads but they’re also super soft as well so if you are wearing glasses with the arms going through you can put these on and they just basically surround the glass arms and no problems whatsoever again I’ll try and show you that a little bit later on you’ve got 500 mil nano clear speakers again come back to those drivers they really are something else high sensitivity microphone so turtle turtle beach’s renowned high sensitive to mic picks up your voice loud and clear and can be removed when not in use and that’s a good thing some of you gamers you prefer to use a different microphone maybe a boom mic that’s coming down like a Yeti or something like that but if you don’t want to use that you can plug in the mic it literally sucks it to the side of the earpiece so if you want to use it great if you didn’t want to use it that’s great too again if you’re going to be using these to listening to audio if you’re these are going to be your kind of your daily drivers so while your say your desk great microphone on if you’re going out maybe listening to some music got your mobile phone or whatever not a problem just unclip the mic and you don’t look like you’re putting in PC games watch your walk in the streets going back to some other things so compatibility this PC 3.5 milk and also comes with a PC splitter as well so it goes into your earphone and microphone slots but the jack has standard has got like the TT RS or TRS or whatever is basically the four rings on it so you can play straight into a mobile device or into Xbox controller or a ps4 controller lots of things if you want to use it with these devices no problem you’ve got your covered red box yeah works fine with the tablet mobiles all that kind of stuff so either single pin or dual pin like I said you’ve got inline controls on the headset so you’ve got your volume control up and down and also you got your mic mute or if you don’t like user might mean you can literally just discount them like faint pull out of the earpiece – no problem at all so except premium air cushions and durable comfort so that’s pretty much most of the specs are taken out of box now the thing that strikes me straight away with these turtlebeach Elite Atlas headphones is the quality of the packaging now if the headphones are anything as good as the quality the packaging then these are going to be amazing the packaging at the moment as you can see this is very nice plain black with the chrome kind of effect or metallic effect logo which you possibly can see reflecting in the in the light pretty minimal but pretty stylish nonetheless inside the box itself first of all we get a turtle beach le atlas this is Toby so basically an intruder I’ll put that in front the camera so if you want to take a look at that in some detail you can pause the video and check it out for yourselves and again in the box you’ve got this really nice phone package in it just really really screamed premium at you know this is kind of one of the top of the line headsets for a game in so kind of you to expect the packaging to match up sort of products and well actually one of the things that struck me first of all pulling these out of boxes actually they’re pretty light there’s a little bit weight to the the actual earpieces themselves which obviously because it’s got a 50 ml driver you’re gonna have some weight in that there’s nothing you can do to get around that there is gonna be some weight and if they were too light then the drivers wouldn’t be able to scratch and it would sound awful but there’s there’s enough weight to say that its quality but there’s it’s light enough to say that it’s a good design so on the sides I suppose we better do this let’s do the peel let’s do the other side just for good measure okay that’s the way now first thing I notice right away is these covers on the side with the Toby delete logo on this is glossy plastic this is going to be a fingerprint magnet because literally every time you take them on or off alright actually don’t really comfortable these gonna get really really dirty so keep a cloth nearby I think is going to be the cool of order but as we’ve previous Beach models this is actually removable so there are some very small little magnets in the actual plastic which just clip on so if you want so you can leave that off I actually I’m not sure if I prefer it like that or like that that’s a little bit more kind of gay marry that if you’re maybe I might walk in the streets would look a little bit more sophisticated in my opinion let me know what you think in the comments look sophisticated or well gained Marie obviously you can put your own logos in there do whatever you like but yeah pretty pretty nice now the the band on the top the tercel beach this is all metal and I think that’s probably aluminium it’s got quite a nice flex to it and on the top you’ve got the headband as well which is all that’s we’re actually really nice padding on there it feels very soft and the kind of the suspension in it is actually very nice as well so it’s gonna be very comfortable there’s a little bit of resistance there but not too much to make it uncomfortable but not too little to make it pointless and you’ve got some rotation on the actual end pieces are nice and actually it’s quite a resistance there so they’re not gonna kind of flow by all over the place there is actually some good tension now does require a little bit of force to move them which is probably a good thing so once you’ve got them Sam up you know they’re gonna stay in the position you want them to no adjustability there’s one two three just three steps of adjustability on there already extension but even if your song with a slightly larger head which I’m not yeah you’re not gonna have any problems at all and actually they do feel really really comfortable now one thing I did notice actually when I just put them on is the actual ear pad itself is that kind of really nice smooth kind of silky elastane type product and on the side you’ve got the leather on the side now I don’t like having headphones they’ve got all leather because I find if you’ve got leather on this inner part which actually makes contact with the side of your head or your ear it does get sweaty because you just the skin can breathe so it gets really uncomfortable quite quickly some previous headphones all you had they were really comfortable but and getting easy to clean but I’d much rather have a material on the side just to kind of keep your ear cool keep your skin cool and actually allow it to breathe like sweating so that’s a really nice touch and actually on the sides of just notice there is like a kind of diaphragm so you’ve got lots of adjustment in the ear cups themselves or here your piece is what would we call them I’ll call them earpieces so you’ve got a lot of adjustment there so they rotate but there’s like an a rubber gasket that goes all the way around so that’s gonna stop dirt and stuff getting inside there it also seals up so it looks kind of premium as well I think that’s what this is all about it’s all about it’s a premium product there’s no it’s not one of your kind of your cheap products this definitely it feels it looks and hopefully it’s going to sound top-of-the-line so moving on to the SOI so this is the connectivity so on this section here this is where we plug in our microphone and also the headphone lead so I suppose actually that’s a really good time to maybe look at that now let’s see what we get actually accessory-wise in the box so inside here we get our two of each elite atlas literature yeah no one really reads that do thing but if you do want to see what it says I mean in the comments and Allah I will find out or post you some links or something or you can jump on our discord server and all I’ll post pictures on there so this is our accessory box and again really nice packaging got the top beats logo think you would if you were going to be giving this as a gift or getting as a gift I think you’d be pretty impressed right so that’s all of our accessories so we get our plugin microphone let’s take a quick look at that I mean this is a quite a cool feature I do like the plug-in mic thing there’s a really nice aspect because you you could wear these quite happily out in a boat might look a little bit odd but I think that you probably get away of it people will war and a lot weirder things outside I think if you’re listening to music these are going to be great but then if you want to plug in your microphone so on the side there that’s it you mic fans attack you’re ready to go no extra cabling literally is all internally wired and you’ve got flexibility there so if you want that really kind of up close st. when you’re talking fantastic or if you want to be a little bit distance like that or if maybe you don’t want people to pick up what you’re saying are you talking to somebody else in the room then it’s really flexible it’s quite nice alright what you thinking oh yeah that’s pretty good so let’s have a look at the rest of the cable in the accessories so this one is the beach we are Aleta says on there and it says connect this end to the headset so this is your main cable now this one is the 4-pole one – yeah I think four poles on that one so connect this end to the headset now actually fits in there quite snugly and doesn’t want to cut it easily there’s quite a lot of force required to actually remove that so that’s not going to come flying out minutes notice so moving on going through here we’ve got our inline connector which actually is far enough away from the headset to not be intrusive yeah that’s it that’s actually quite a good position sometimes you get them where the control is here it ends up kind of dragging across your shirt or whatever I’m sorry having it down here is quite nice it’s got a nice feel very rotary control for the volume and you’ve got a nice clicky on-off switch for your microphone which also has a little red marker so you can tell when it’s actually muted again all good stuff so that leaves you with your four pink the 3.5 ml jar which then you can plug straight into your mobile phone well typically you can on this mobile phone because this is USB type-c so I’ll need to get my USB type-c adapter so maybe we’re looking at in a little bit but if you plug it into a PC actually also just knows even what I’m talking with these this headset on I’m not getting that weird feeling in my head you know what you get when this kind of it’s still off and you can’t hear your own voice I can pretty much hear a bit of feedback from my voice so an unlocked it gonna be shout into lively already so hopefully I’m not shouting too likely the peak meter on the camera isn’t saying I am so hopefully everything is all good actually something else which is just struck me the cabling on this is actually the braiding is really nice so you’ve got braided cables throughout so if you’re not gonna be plugging into your Xbox controller or a Playstation controller or your phone then you plug that into this additional extension which then gives you a good there’s at least two two and a half meters extension there on top of the already meter or so you’ve got here so you’ve got a good three meters or four cabling so if maybe you’re someone who’s got your headphones hung up on the side of a NZXT case or something and you want to route all the wiring around and do some cable management no reason why you can you’ve got enough length of cable there and then it just ends up in your standard 3.5 million coloured one for the microphone and the green color-coded tip for the earphone section so it’s pretty much it so the last thing to do now is actually test this out and see what it sounds like and see what the microphones like so let’s go and do that now and we’ll be back straight after okay so before we start the actual microphone review I thought I’ll actually show you more right the guy asses friendly design of these ear cups which i think is actually pretty ingenious so beer cups themselves actually are held on magnetically so there’s four magnetic points which match up with four magnets on the actual earpiece actually what I’ve got off you can actually see the driver in there that is an absolute beauty that is a heck of a driver well worth a look just $1 oh no she is almost a piece of art anyway let’s get on so the cups themselves obviously you can take off so if you want to clean them that kind of thing but what is really really clever is actually on the back there is a tag so if you remove the tag pull that off just a little bit fiddly to do if you’ve got larger fingers but essentially it’s a poor cord so if you pull on this adapter you’ll see the the cushion moves in so by is what you do you put tension actually on the they’re plastic there and there’s a very very small little lug so we do is pull it to the desired tension and then pop over which is if I’m honest it’s a little bit fiddly to do and doesn’t help I’m trying to do it under filming conditions so there we go hopefully you can kind of understand how that works so essentially there’s a pin which sticks up maybe you’re picking up maybe not so there’s a tap you pull the tab through and there’s a pin which you put the tab over and now actually holds it in place I hopefully you can see there’s an indentation there actually in the cup itself so if I remove the other cup which I’ve done the same as well you can see there’s an indentation now I haven’t done that one quite as much as this one you can just about see there is a indentation actually in the cup itself just there where my finger is and that is on both sides so that isn’t an effect where your glasses are going to go so if I put these back in now making sure I’ve got the left on the left and they are actually mark touched on the inner side that does say which is the left that which is the right so there’s nowhere you can get them confused so now what you’ve got is a indentation in the cup on both sides so it really put it on doesn’t matter if you’re Wearing’s or normal thin glasses like these or you go in full-on kc nice tight on it with these thicker arms so you just put it through and the arms actually go through where the indentation is so it just relieves the pressure off the side of your head I’ll take those off I’ll put these ones on I think I’ve gone slightly high there so hopefully you can get the idea so the glass is where are the actual arms go through the part has a kind of attention then it so it relieves attention from the pad to relieve the tension from the arms so you don’t get that kind of pressing in feeling on the site so I thought I’ll show you that that’s pretty cool quite impressive so now I want to do is do the same tests so I’m going to use my android phone and the same recorder app I’m recording at 0 DB so is there’s no gain and there’s nothing taken off it this is pretty much the stock sound I’m recording at 192 bit rate and it’s 44.1 kilohertz or CD quality or whatever is essentially it’s just an audio recorder app so I’m gonna go ahead and start that out now so we’ve pressed record on the outline so this is a sound sample from the microphone built into the turtle turtle beach elite Atlas was easy for me to say so let’s try some peas and some asses so Peter picks a piece of pickled pepper and I’m trying really hard to think of something with S’s in it Simple Simon Says what did Simple Simon say let me know in the comment section below we’re actually gonna be doing a giveaway for these headphones so when the video gets 10,000 views we’ll be picking a random winner so if you’ve put a comment in the comment section below you’re gonna be in with a chance to win also in the section if you want to please put your location where you live and also funny comment if you want to so this is a sign test of the Turtle Beach elite Atlas let us know again what you think ok so we’re back there was the test the only thing what do you think I think it sounds fantastic is exceptionally clear I’ve also gone on after that video this is why there’s this is a little bit later on another day I’ve been playing some counter-strike as I said that is my game really guys right and I’ve gotta be honest for you these are like cheatin please make it unfair my hit rate and my awareness of the maps was far far better with these than what is with standard speakers or with my bluetooth headphones or whatever I’ve been using previously there is definitely an unfair advantage now I’ll with nothing weathers the drivers that do it whether it’s the same quality worse the engineer in whether it’s Windows Sonic or wherever it’s the microphone I don’t know what it is but these definitely do seem to give me an advantage when playing games which for the price that are asking in which at the moment in the UK is by 85 pounds so you’re looking about $99 there abouts in the US I will be putting links in the description below so you can check them out for yourself see what you think but for the price they’re asking and also for the same quality you get it now I graphs slightly from playing my counter-strike and I thought I’ll try some YouTube videos and choice of music and see what that’s like listen to some modern pop fantastic the bass is really really good it’s not that kind of muddy bassist a very clean and controlled bass so it doesn’t kind of go into the other frequencies it just does what it’s meant to do listening to some older music some seventies and eighties there was a track by Tracy Chapman fast car that if you’ve ever heard it but when you listen to that it’s a very acoustic type of sound it’s basically her and a guitar and very little else and you can hear every single thing in it the clarity is absolutely ridiculous so even if you’re not a gamer even if you just want to get some headphones you listen to music on your PC on your mobile phone whatever it is these are definitely the ones to get okay so to to wrap up I guess then yeah I totally recommend these for the asking price yep definitely a no-brainer that comfortable they look slick they sound great they’re super flexible of work with pretty much any device and they may even give you an unfair advantage of some of your favorite eSports titles so this has been the turtlebeach elite Atlas I’ve been like this is an unboxing reviews in how to and who three will be catching you in the very next video thanks for watching.
