A headset is a key part in any PC gamer's setup. They offer hands free online communication and clear, personal audio, while staying relatively cheap. Most gamers will find themselves with a basic wireless headset that probably doesn’t completely fulfill their audio needs. Generic headsets commonly have terrible microphone quality and mediocre audio quality at best. Buying a premium and/or gaming-oriented headset guarantees a more desirable gaming experience. You’ll find better mic and audio quality, along with other features such as better comfort, inline controls and more.
Today we have the Oxid Professional Gaming headset from Ozone, maker of professional gaming products. The Oxid takes the premium and/or gaming route and offers an adjustable headband, padded ear-cups, retractable microphone and a built in USB sound card. This sounds like perfect addition to a standard gaming setup. Let’s see how it fits in with the already populated gaming headset market.
The Ozone Oxid comes in medium sized box with a red and black color scheme. Around the front you get the name and a nice large picture off the headset in action. Around the back you get a very detailed diagram of the headset. Along the bottom you have the basic specifications in five languages. The left side gives you a quick run-down of the Oxid’s special features while the right side has a window to the inside of the box. The front opens up to reveal a full-on view of the headset.
Inside the package you’ll find the headphones, manual and drivers CD. Being that the headphones are USB powered and have integrated audio processing, the whole package remains fairly simple.
Opening up the box you find the headset all by itself; no driver CDs, manuals, extra cables, etc. So without further ado, let's check out the actual headset.
