This is a wireless headset for the PS4 with a powerful sound. The mic is integrated in an ear cup, which gives the headset a very sleek look.
Pro Detailed sound with powerful bass
The 800X delivers great bass levels, giving low frequency sounds a lot of power and boom. In-game explosions sound very immersive with these. What’s great is that the bass does not muddy up the mids and highs so the sound is still fairly detailed. More nuanced game audio like dialogue and high pitched sound effects can easily be appreciated with these.
Pro Wide sound stage via the surround sound feature
While this comes at the expense of audio quality, the headset’s 7.1 virtual surround sound feature does help in widening up the sound. This enhances the feeling of being in the game, making the direction of gunshots and explosions easier to pinpoint.
Pro Charging base has great features
Aside from functioning as charger and headset stand, the base is also the headset’s wireless transmitter, so you can reposition it for maximum signal stability. There is also an optical pass-through port which allows the audio from the headsets to output to external speakers for others to enjoy.
Con Ear cup buttons are too fiddly to use
The buttons on the lower part of the ear cups control various functions of the headset like audio volume adjust, mic volume adjust and other functions. However, the buttons are multi-directional, which can make their functions difficult to memorize. These buttons are also quite sensitive so unintended activation can be frequent.
