The Quantum 800's are easy to use between different devices, very straight forward. They have great range with the usb adapter. No complaints about audio quality, except when using their Surround Sound settings. I can't tell if it enhances games, but with music quality through the pc it tends to dull the audio. The headset is on the smaller side of battery life duration, and the cups aren't comfortable for people with Glasses.

Pros

  • Great sound quality
  • Lots of Features
  • Great Mic
  • Flip to mute is very useful
  • Good range
  • Easy to use

Cons

  • Some feature clutter
  • Game/Chat audio adjusting is confusing
  • ANC can be disorienting/harsh
  • Heavier headset, uncomfortable with glasses

Parasını haketmiyor. Bi kere şarjı bittiğinde kablolu kullanım imkanı yok, şarjı bittiğinde ne amaçla kullanıyorsanız yarım bırakıp şarja takmanız gerekiyor. Ayrıca telefona bluetoothla bağladınız diyelim telefon cebinizdeyken ses kesiliyor. Şarj süresi de yine anlatıldığı gibi 16-17 saat değil max 3 saat ışıkları açık olursa süre daha da kısa...Tahtakaledeki 100 liralık kulaklıklar bile daha iyi. İlgi çekici gelen bir tek rgb ışıkları var başka da hiç esprisi yok. Ses yalıtımı anlatıldığı kadar değil her kulaklıkla olduğu kadar ya da olması gerektiği kadar. Müzik dinleyecek olanlar için de ideal bir kulaklık değil. Başka bir ürün bakın, alan pişman olur.Bu fiyatlara kulaklık bakan varsa 3e 5e bakmadan çok daha iyi markalar var onlara bakın paranızı çöpe atmayın.

Pros

  • Tasarım

Cons

  • Şarj olurken kullanım imkanı yok
  • mikrofon sökülmüyor
  • wireless özelliği yok
  • bluetooth çok zayıf
  • tuşların yerleşimi kötü
  • ağır
  • şarjı çabuk bitiyor
  • 7.1 özelliği başarılı bir deneyim sunmuyor
  • Ans işe yaramıyor

With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
2.weight

410g

372g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
3.has an over-the-ear form
JBL Quantum 800
SteelSeries Arctis 9X
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
