AOC are greatest recognized for his or her wonderful gaming displays, however now the show makers are entering into a brand new space of PC gaming: the standard headset. Launching this Might, the AOC GH200 and GH300 will each include 50mm neodynium drivers like most of the different high gaming headsets on the market proper now, in addition to removable, omnidirectional microphones. The perfect half, although, is that these wired headsets are solely set to value £39 and £49 apiece.
That is fairly low cost so far as gaming headsets go, and I will be eager to see if they will knock Roccat’s Elo X Stereo off its greatest funds headset perch once they launch in simply a few months time.
My cash’s on the cheaper GH200. This headset connects to PC over a easy 3.5mm audio jack (it comes with a splitter within the field) and shares the identical total design as its costlier sibling, together with its leatherette reminiscence foam ear cushions and adjustable steed headband. It additionally comes with the identical 2m braided cable.
The GH300, however, connects to PC over USB and provides digital 7.1 encompass sound help to the combination. Its AOC logos on the outer ear cups additionally gentle up with 4 RGB modes, which could be managed from its inline distant together with its quantity controls and on/off microphone switches. Its microphone additionally has an LED in it to point out whenever you’re on mute, too – which is not dangerous for an additional tenner.
Gaming headsets aren’t the primary PC peripherals AOC have dipped their toes into, both. Early final yr, AOC unveiled their first mice and keyboards, which ended up releasing in late September. Again then, AOC launched common and premium Agon branded peripherals to match their Agon gaming displays, so it is attainable we could much more headsets from AOC within the coming months which can be even fancier. For now, although, I am very a lot trying ahead to making an attempt out these extra budget-friendly headsets once they launch in Might, so keep tuned for additional impressions.
