    They look incredibly like the Arctis 1's, but with Razer on the headband. Nice to see th we as an option tho, over the Naris I was having so much trouble with.
    I found the Nari to be too base heavy, which can be corrected a bit in the EQ of their software. Problem was their software was terrible. I kept having issues with it and it changing up inputs on me, losing those inputs to my OBS, where I would have to reinstall the software often.
    I ended up sending the Naris back and keeping the Arctis 1's, and the only thing I'm really missing on is the self adjusting strap and the game/chat mix. And the useless RGB. Overall, I'm a happy Oliv.

    got this headset a few days ago, sounds great, connects effortlessly between PS5/PC/iPhone (wired mode using a lightning to 3.5mm adapter)
    These were the headphones that I was waiting for, great comfort, good sound quality (most of the time), and wide range of compatibility.

  • Bradley Gilroy

    Honestly I don't think there's any issue with comparing these headphones with the Sony pair you're used to. I think this is the kind of unboxing that compares the low end to the high end that most consumers are looking at so honestly knowing that you're missing some of those fine soundscape details and that it's set to emphasize bass is helpful information. In a world where spatial audio is about to go mainstream, these kinds of details important. Intra-product comparisons are as effective here as they are when you compare different CPUs. I always appreciate a comparison to other products at $100 so that we can see the value proposition in the context of it pricing but I liked this first impressions video. Why don't we see more of you anyway? That was competent.
