Headphones provides comfort and strong quality audio.
This is a review of the Sentey Artix Gaming Headset. It is a over-the-ear, USB headset with microphone suitable for use on Windows or Mac.
This thing is big. It reminds me of a big set of cans you might find in a recording studio. It has a nice plastic coated braided USB cord with a simple USB connection to your computer. It is self adjusting with a spring loaded headband, which I found perfectly comfortable. I had no trouble connecting it to my Windows 10 PC, and there were no drivers to install. It was effortless to select it for use in Steam for voice use.
On the headset you will find a volume control, LED switch to make the headphones light up bright blue, and a mysterious “V” switch which I could find no mention of in the documentation. The “V” switch seemed to do nothing as far as I could tell. Testing with Audacity, there was no effect on the microphone. The manual mentions a special microphone control, but there wasn’t one anywhere to be found. The microphone has a sturdy retractable boom that swings out of the left ear piece.
The USB connection provides all that is needed for interfacing this to your computer. Having an on-board audio adapter means that you don’t have to fiddle with plugging in separate cables for sound and mic in. To me, the audio quality is good, if just a little heavy on the bass side which many will find a positive.
You will find it very comfortable to wear, and very effective at isolating outside sounds thanks to its comfortable ear pieces with rubberized foam pads.
The fit is pretty impressive. I found the spring loaded headband to be perfect for my head, and I had no problem wearing it for a couple of hours at a time while playing games or listening to music.
The major disappointment for me was its very weak microphone gain. Even with all my levels at full, it was difficult for anyone to hear me unless I was almost yelling. Evaluating in Audacity, I was unable to get it to register at more than half level without speaking very loudly. I tried setting gains in the application, Windows, and even fiddling with the volume control and “V” switch on the unit, but to no improvement.
This is a decent set of headphones that are very comfortable to use, easy to install, and sound great. Poor microphone performance and its rather large size might make you think twice about this particular set.
