Xiaomi Mi Game Headset - BLACK
Xiaomi Mi game headset: design
This Xiaomi Mi game headset is wired with non-Bluetooth connection. But I personally think that, at the same or similar price, wired headphones have better sound effects than the Bluetooth ones, and even support more formats or games.
Its packing base can be used for placing headphones, and if you're lazy or don't buy a headphone holder, it's good to use it as a scaffold.
The cord of the headphone can be plugged in independently, and it can be removed when not used, and the left and right sides are different from each other.
On the right is the 3.5mm headphone port, which is used to connect to a phone or tablet.
On the left is the Type-C interface, which is used to connect to the computer, and the other end of the line is the USB interface.
The earmuffs are thick and large, the ears are completely wrapped inside, and listening to music works very well.
Wire control unit is placed on the line connected with PC, including MIC switch and volume. It is more convenient to play PC games.
The problem of head size can be solved by stretching, which is basically suitable for most people. If it is too small, your head size is really big enough. It's not easy to buy in the market, so you have to give priority to ear style headphone.
This headphone has two MIC ports. One is for the main call, the other is for noise reduction. I try to make phone calls and try game voice, which is much better than ordinary headphones, and even better than my usual Bluetooth headset for driving.
There's nothing more to say about the workmanship. It's absolutely qualified at this price. But my hands sweat easily. I have to wipe it off in a day and it's easy to leave fingerprints on it.
There is a LED light effect on the side of the headset, which can be adjusted by computer, such as color, flicker, etc.
Xiaomi Mi game headset: connectivity
There are two ways to use this headphone. One is to use the 3.5mm headphone interface when you use a mobile phone or tablet computer.
Another is the PC interface, which connects the headset to the computer through USB and downloads a PC application. With this application, we can customize the headphones more deeply.
In addition to increasing syllable volume on the computer and wire control, we can also adjust the volume of headphones and MIC in the control center. I would like to say that under normal circumstances, the volume of about 10% is very large. If it reaches 100%, I feel that my ears will burst. MIC volume regulation is very important, and it is very flexible when playing games.
After connecting to PC, headphones can simulate 7.1 surround stereo effect through application. Although not as shocking as the real home theater, the simulation effect is also good. If you wear headphones to watch movies, the effect will be very good.
As we said above, its lamp effect can be adjusted, not only the color can be adjusted, but also the flicker effect can be adjusted, and so on. Besides the preset ones, the color can also be DIY.
Equilibrium, in fact, is not needed for most users. At most, there are a few preset options. There are not many people who really adjust themselves, but there are better than nothing.
Firmware upgrades and so on are also implemented through software.
Cable headphones have good scalability after connecting to computers, which is also better than Bluetooth headphones. And most importantly, wired headphones have almost zero latency.
A lot of Bluetooth headphones have a very uncomfortable delay when playing games. Even half a second, it will be uncomfortable. Most of the cases are caused by Bluetooth standards or compatibility problems. Cable headphones will not have this problem.
Xiaomi Mi game headset: sound effect
I experienced two rounds with Jedi Survival: Stimulating the Battlefield, and the sound effect was the best of all the Xiaomi headphones I evaluated, and the sound effect of shooting was more realistic because the ears were all wrapped up. Noise reduction can be turned on or off in desktop software.
The PC side I experienced is Need For Speed™. The same stereo effect is great, and the comfort of the headset is much more comfortable than that of the ear-in type. Playing for a long time will not lead to earache. I wore it for nearly two hours without any earache. If it's ear-piercing, it won't be comfortable for more than an hour.
If you play for a long time, it's more comfortable to buy a headset.
Although it's called game headphones, we can also listen to music. As usual, I found some music that I often listen to. This time, because of the relationship between big ears, I chose some music with obvious rhythm.
On the whole, its sound effect can reach the upper and middle level. That is, you will not say something bad for it, but you will also not feel "Wow!" super experience. It fully meets the standard that this price should have.
And don't forget, this is a game-oriented headphone, so we still have to focus on the game.
This Xiaomi game headphone should be considered as the best sound quality product in all Xiaomi headphones at present. In terms of playability, its advantages are obvious, it can meet the standard of mobile phones and computers.
In fact, the price is not expensive, and it is just priced at $84.8 on GearBeat. If you often play PC games at home, this is a good choice.
Pros: On the PC, you can get more play methods and effects. The price is not expensive, and the appearance is good.
Cons: It's easy to get fingerprints (if this is the case, most of the same products also have the same problems). Another disadvantage of it is that you can’t connect the mi game headset with the Type-C smartphones.
