Gaming Headset Review: Sharkoon X-Tatic SR Surround Sound Headphones
16 October 2011
Excerpt: It is hard to believe, but not everyone wants to listen as you pump sound from video games through your home theater system. That is why there are gaming headsets to begin with – they provide a microphone, but can also provide very sensitive audio … or blast your face off with mega-sound!
Pros: Excellent sound quality as headphones, powered headset, or full-on Dolby mode; convenient microphone; highly modular
Cons: Each of these capabilities seems to add a wire; microphone more sensitive than most headsets; top-end pricing to match top-end capabilities
Summary: When gamers talk about headsets they tend to talk about major companies and rarely do you hear of smaller manufacturers like Sharkoon. The Sharkoon Xtatic SR are a pair of universal customizable headsets. Can they stand up to other universal headsets on the market or has the Sharkoon jumped the ship?
