The Ozone Strato is a very attractive peripheral. The whole headset is of extremely high quality. The plastic is very solid and does not feel cheap. Everything is covered in a smooth rubbery texture and the earcups and headband have a leathery feel. The center speakers and rear speakers visibly stick out from the front and back of each ear, which is promising in terms of how well the surround sound should work. Each earcup is adjustable in length by about 32mm or 1.25”. In addition, each earcup rotates to better fit the shape of the user's head. The headset is touted with having a folding design for portability, but when folded they take up nearly the same amount of space.
The microphone is adjustable 150° from straight up to about mouth level. Though it isn’t detachable when it is aimed straight up, it stays out of the way. Moving over to the control pod, you’ll find the same smooth, rubbery coating and general high quality feel. Here you can adjust the individual volume of the rear, front, sub and center speakers. In addition, you have the microphone mute switch and rocker-style volume wheel. This actually directly controls the windows volume leaving you with only one volume level to deal with.
Now that we know our way around the Ozone Strato, let's get it setup and see how it performs.
