And the Best Gam­ing Head­set Is ….

HWM (Malaysia) - - MULTI-TEST -

SENNHEISER PC 363D

If we look at only gam­ing per­for­mance, three con­tenders pull ahead of the pack. The Sennheiser PC 363D, Razer Kraken 7.1 and SteelSeries Siberia Elite all had ex­cel­lent 7.1 vir­tual sur­round sound cour­tesy of ei­ther Dolby tech­nolo­gies, or in the case of Razer, pro­pri­etary au­dio en­hance­ment. But when other fac­tors are con­sid­ered, a clear win­ner emerges. The Sennheiser PC 363D pro­vided a great de­gree of com­fort due to its “XXL” ear-cups, and the open back de­sign not only de­liv­ered a wide, nat­u­ral sound­stage, but also pre­vented over-heat­ing thanks to great ven­ti­la­tion. Fi­nally, a neu­tral tone al­lowed the Sennheiser head­set to ex­cel when han­dling mu­sic as well. Tak­ing over­all per­for­mance into ac­count, the PC 363D turned out to be wor­thy of our Best Per­for­mance award.

RAZER KRAKEN 7.1

When it came to the Best Value award, the Log­itech G430 and the Razer Kraken 7.1 were in the frame for con­sid­er­a­tion. The Log­itech gam­ing head­set had a slight edge in terms of com­fort thanks to its sporty ear-pad cush­ion cov­er­ing. But with pro­pri­etary au­dio tech­nol­ogy on its side the Razer Kraken 7.1 had much bet­ter gam­ing per­for­mance. In ad­di­tion the cus­tomiza­tion and cal­i­bra­tion made avail­able by Razer’s Sy­napse 2.0 soft­ware meant that the Kraken 7.1 could be tweaked to sig­nif­i­cantly im­prove your gam­ing per­for­mance.
