What's Hot

 

The long-term feel: This headset may feel 'off' at first, but you'll come to appreciate it when the four hour gaming session comes to an end.

Easy to clean: Sentey has used leather in the Symph's ear cups and headband, meaning a quick wipe with a damp cloth will keep your headset smelling nice and looking clean.

 

The price: It's $29.99!

 

Sound to cost ratio: It's the best sounding under-$50 headset I have ever come across.

 

What's Not

 

A little fragile: the light design makes it feel a little cheap, treat this product nicely to ensure it lasts for years to come.

Muddy bass: As with most cheap headsets, when the bass drops it sounds like you've just dove under the bed covers - muddy and muffled.

 

 

Final Thoughts

 

So, the sound quality is nothing stellar, but it's a 7.1 digital surround-sound headset with leather ear cups and a leather headband for $29.99 - that's ridiculous.

If you're a gamer on a budget and don't mind a USB-only connection, I would highly recommend this product to you.

 

The main reason I would say the headset is so cheap would be to sales pressures from various retailers. Coming from a peripheral manufacturer background myself, often retail stores will drive down your price in order to sell more units leaving you with no other options than to go along in order to clear units. In the end, this is where you, as the consumer, wins out - get Sentey Symph right now as your main set or a suitable backup before they run out.
