Do not get fooled by the shining RGB, it has a low-impedance headphone alike sound quality hiding behind the ear pads.
You need a decent amount of highs to hear all the footsteps but without all the sibilance. The tighter bass can make powerful gunshots sound much more punchy. The voice of your squad members is most comfortable to your ears when the audio is neutrally reproduced. With all these put together, doesn’t it resemble something else?
Yes, we made the FIFINE H6 headset out of the standard of a pair of good budget headphones, but colored it towards the joyful-to-hear V-shaped sound and fitted it with RGB for style and the microphone and the USB connector for convenience.
Nothing crazy about the 50mm speaker driver on each side, to compete with the long-existing model, we have to push the boast out on the feature aspects. What makes it a really good pair of headset is the 24-bit depth. The crucial benefit it translating into gaming is that the audio will contain more information, thus you are more likely to outhear your rivals on the battlefield. And you will hear a more accurate representation of your teammates’ audio even in the most intense fight.
Literally, it is still a headset, so the microphone can not be missed. To keep in the line with the neutral output, the mic is also tweaked towards the mid-ends to pick up the most natural voice.
It is nowhere near the two common types of headset mics: one is over-boosting the highs to make the audio clipping and harsh, and the other with the overwhelming bass sounds like underwater.
The mic itself is not just detachable, but most importantly is flexible. You can fiddle with the position to cover the drawback of thin and detailless sounding rather well.
Despite the incompatibility with Xbox console, the USB connection is actually a better choice for PC gamers or even mobile users. Because the motherboard will no longer have to do the audio processing job, which will incur much less electric noises and result in a much cleaner reproduced voice. With a proper USB adapter, you can also use it to improve the audio of your mobile game.
With the metal construction, thick ear cups and headband, RGB lights on each side, a mic, an on-cable control unit and an interference isolator, heavy should be the first word that springs to your mind immediately.
On paper, its 320g takes no advantage over the strip-down lightweight ones. But it is not the case of sacrificing comfort for performance. The headband is not just made of metal, but more importantly is wider than the normal ones, both of which give a better weight distribution and provide just the right amount of clamping force to stay firmly in place.
With the thick and dense padding, the ear cups are able to hold up the rest of the weight evenly and nicely. The headband and cushions are wrapped in leatherette that is even more breathable than some fabric foam ones. So that you can play for a few hours without feeling fatigued.
The sound of adjusting the size is rather tempting, who doesn’t want a headphone that sounds like reloading a machine gun. There are little bits at the end of each headband sticking out, which not only give extra help to stabilize the headphone but also allows you to adjust the size with just one hand!
Whether the 7.1 surround sound is marketing BS or not, you will definitely say yes to this feature if it comes as a standard. And there it is on the FIFINE H6 headset! Whether you can hear your enemies before they hear you or not when enabling the surround sound. All the more useful benefit it provides is that even with the closed-back design, you are not feeling like you are closed in, but feel like your audio is slightly expanded.
And the EQ button is also fun to play with, you can switch among three modes: game, music and movie. In plain, the headphone audio becomes bass-heavy when the game mode is on, focuses more on the highs if the music mode is chosen and gets balanced when switching to movie. But the scenarios are not set in stone, you can apply them all into the game. Increase the positioning awareness in CSGO even further in music mode, and immerse yourself more into the car soundtrack of Forza Horizon 5 in movie mode.
The control unit is not all that swagger, two practical features are also integrated. The physical volume up and down buttons are always the best bit for gamers, not even a single second that you want to lose on alt-tabbing out a full-screen game to adjust the sound. Neither you would like to remember another set of hotkeys to mute yourself in the game, then just switch on the silence button on the side of the control unit. At the same time, the indicator on the microphone lights up red to give a warning to your viewers.
The all-black low-profile design makes it extremely understated in the dark. But with the game starting and the atmosphere getting intense, the RGB stripes and the shining logos on each side definitely help spice the game up. Even if the game is not on, the glowing lights are also eased to look at.
