And here I am again this time the test headphones for player/gamer! Sector of gaming headsets are mostly occupied by Wired headsets (and I would say: like any peripheral player, it is usually wired). Then of course, wired headsets have their advantages, but because of the presence of the wire, you are limited in your travels! Of course, when we play, we stay at the computer or console, but that says play does not say not to break! And during breaks, it may well leave the headphones on the ears for various reasons: ambient noise, the game sounds, music, etc… And then, headphones can very well be indicated for games, but nothing prevents also to use it off video games! Among the headphones wireless (wireless, so), you have mainly 2 types: wifi or bluetooth (some even use the 2 at the same time, one for listening, the other for the voice) HUHD HW – 398 M is audio headphones for gamer, using Wifi at 2.4 wireless GhZ.

Personally, I like pretty well this design! Furthermore, it contains not unnecessary LEDs that consumes your battery, just that the indication of ignition. I think that any other effect of light is unnecessary for the simple reason that we, bearer of the helmet, it does not see! Then of course, for others, that may be beautiful, but there already, this will depend on the taste and color of each… And this will unnecessarily consume the battery of your headset. N.B.: The received helmet has, contrary to the above image and other images that can be found on the net, the senior (at the level of the CRA) cushions blue slightly flashy! Everything is located on the right speaker: ignition button, mute button / pairing, microphone, usb port for charging, port jack (for xbox), button volume of the sounds of the game, the chat volume knob. No button or indicator on the left side. At the level of the USB transmitter: a blue lamp tells you its ignition. It turns red if you have your mic muted. The light alternates quickly between the red and blue when the headset is off, or when you make a pairing.
About battery, the headset contains a Lithium battery, already better than those using batteries! And in addition, it lasts more than 10 hours! That's excellent! This helmet is also among those who have the most autonomy!
This helmet has the defect to be fully plastic! Even the shiny parts are plastic (and easily keeps fingerprints!). Just toquer above to hear the characteristic sound of hollow plastic… Because of all of the plastic frame, this helmet is unfortunately fairly rigid compared to those with a metal frame! Thus, it is less flexible and is inadvisable for "big" heads. 2 speakers are adjustable in height, but have no possible rotations. The microphone is slightly flexible, but only front/rear. Despite its Alien design or mechanical scorpion tail, each part is not as flexible as you might think. To make it keep its fold, should force slightly. No possibility to put it higher or lower.
I do not like the pads, because it is actually of foam with a "breathable" membrane. And says who says foam, absorbs the water, including the sweat! So in the beginning, it's okay, but in the long run… and to clean it, it is not there is more practical! But good point, these can easily be removed to change / wash. Personally, I very much felt the rigidity of plastic. Some metal helmets are heavy hand but ultra-light on the head. In this case, it is rather the reverse I felt: light hand, a little heavy on the head… This impression of heaviness is primarily due to the rigidity that strongly supports on all points of contact. Rated ease of use, easy use and access: 2 buttons at the front and 2 wheels at the rear (all side right).
This wireless audio headset is compatible PS4, PS3, Xbox One, XBOX360, Wii, TV and PC. Since this is a blog primarily dedicated to computers, I have therefore tested this headset on PC. Relatively simple, easy installation, but may encounter some minor problems. Fortunately, the operating instructions, as well as the sheet summarizing the problems that may be encountered are very clear and detailed! For installation per se, simply insert the USB transmitter. During my first test, Windows was unable to install only 2 drivers on the 3. If this is the case, change simply USB port, and it should work for the installation. For listening, that the transmitter does not use port jack 3.5 mm from your computer, your computer is in principle as default configuration to send the sound on the jack on a priority basis, and if nothing is plugged into your speakers. Although the installation has been done well, you need to put the transmitter default USB instead of your speakers by default, otherwise it will send sound to them. N.B.: think to restart your computer after installation. Although everything seems to be OK and that your computer sends well sound, may you hear nothing. After reboot, you should hear the sound in your headphones.
The helmet has the advantage to use only wifi (there or some other headsets use the wifi… and bluetooth! ). Theoretically, there may be interference with your wifi box. But personally, compared to another wifi helmet that had a transmitter in dualband, 2.4 and 5 GhZ, I have not found problems. For the Playstation, it uses an optical audio cable (supplied). For the Xbox, wireless headset, becomes… Wired! It is necessary to connect it to the controller and requires Kinect. The microphone is a 3.5 mm jack. The headset recharges via micro-USB, same thing for the transmitter.
I'm not a music lover, but it is a very good audio quality! I believe that the sound is a bit better than other headphones gaming for the same price! Electrical background noise that can be heard in the headphones the ignition is also less and does not change depending on the volume, big plus point! About volume, know that you have 2 knobs to adjust the sound level of the headphones, the cat and the sound in the background. The microphone is weak for my taste. But it has the advantage of being one-way.
A good headset with a very good quality/price ratio. Mainly 2 concerns: stiffness due to the exoskeleton entirely plastic and low- and non-flexible microphone height. Facing other helmets of the same price, I would say that it is more than because of his ability to listen, but lose in terms of comfort. Product link: http://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B00PUMU13Y/
