These headphones are great for audiophiles however the comfort isn't great sometimes. They are wireless, which is great, but only by USB. They do not have bluetooth or any wired options. And because it is USB, you cannot use them on your phone or other mobile devices without an adapter. They are a little heftier so it can lead to mild discomfort over time, but the synapse app allows for great audio customization. The microphone is ok. Its not gonna block out your Razer Black Widow V2 chroma with your cherry MX green switches from the discord chat but it gets the job done. Overall, good budget headphones for those who put sound quality at the top of their bar for headphones.

Pros

  • sound quality
  • battery
  • sound customization
  • durability
  • design

Cons
