After just under a week of use, I can honestly say that the Ear Force Z2 is one of the more solid stereo gaming headsets I’ve ever used. Physically, they do not feel cheap, and I am sure these could survive the heavy beating of LAN parties and everyday use. The audio quality was definitely above par, as gaming audio sounded great and when I switched over to music I was not too disappointed. The headphones were a little high-to-mid heavy and bass-weak in games and music, but some quick Windows equalizer work fixes that. According to other people and in my own tests, the microphone proved to be more than adequate, being described as “very clear” by my friends on Skype. Lastly, comfort was not a major issue with these headphones, as they were overall very comfortable, but the rough ear-piece fabric kept them from being perfect.
The Ear Force Z2 has definitely found a place in my online gaming setup, thanks to decent audio quality, good comfort and solid build quality, making this an easy recommendation to any gamer.
