Gamdias hebe m1 RGB
Only for Gaming
GAMDIAS has been steadily gaining popularity after they officially entered the market back in 2016. Their catalogue of Greek-inspired gaming peripherals has also proliferated in the local market from their low-end to high-end devices. We’ve taken a look at one of their RGB keyboards in the form of the Hermes P1 RGB, but it is time to move on and see what they offer in the audio department with the Hebe M1 RGB.
Aside from the headset, there’s nothing inside the box, we mean nothing. Everything has been included in the headset itself. It would have been nice if GAMDIAS included a USB cable extension just in case the built-in cable was not long enough for your PC.
The Hebe M1 does not have any moving parts aside from the headband, microphone, and the drivers. This makes it surprisingly rigid despite its lightweight build.
The headset’s headband is soft and flexible and will fit most head shapes without any problems. The clamping force, however, is a bit loose, which makes noise isolation more minimal compared to other gaming headsets available in the market. The issue with the noise isolation is further hampered by the lack of any swivel adjustments in the cups. As the name suggests, the Hebe M1 RGB is RGBcapable. You can’t actually control the lighting of the headset aside from turning it on and off. While turned on, it will only cycle between several colors.
As with most gaming headsets, we played some games first to see how the GAMDIAS Hebe M1 RGB will function compared to other gaming headsets. With the Hebe M1 RGB’S 7.1 surround capability, Overwatch became easier and more enjoyable to play. Awareness of the enemy team’s positioning is not just based on sight alone. Audio is also important in tracking the enemy team. With the Hebe M1 RGB, we were able to hear Reindhardt’s armor clanking through the walls so our team can easily flank the enemy team. Even Genji’s fast movement can’t save him if we are able to out maneuver him and cut off his escape route by listening closely to his faint footsteps.
The Hebe M1 RGB does have downfalls such as the lack of swivel adjustment, short cable, position of the in-line controller, the noncontrollable RGB lighting, and most importantly, the middling musical performance. Despite these, the headset does well in the area it matters most: gaming. The 7.1 surround helped us in immersing ourselves in the game. If you are looking for a headset that you’ll use exclusively for gaming, don’t be afraid to try these cans.
CONCLUSION Despite its many downfalls, the GAMDIAS Hebe M1 RGB does well in the area it matters most: gaming. If you’re looking for a headset exclusively for gaming, give these cans a try.
The side of the earcups does light up in RGB but you don’t have any control over the lighting.
