Sharkoon X-Tatic True 5.1 Headset
This is a product review of the Sharkoon x-Tatic 5.1 surround sound headset.
I personally own this headset and have used it for several years and have gone through several pairs because well I can be a bit rough on them or my dog can be :).
I'll start with the fact that this is a very durable headset. My first pair of this headset suffered from multiple drops, yanks, and general heavy usage for over 2 years before it broke down and I had to purchase a second headset.
Secondly, the sound quality probably isn't the best on the market, but it is one of the top contenders in my book. I paired this with an Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium to produce some solid sound. Listening to music never better and gaming with the Sharkoon Headset is top notch in my book.
If you are a heavy FPS gamer - you'll want the surround sound setup - the guns pop, the footsteps are heard, and I know when lil' timmy is scratchin his balls all to be blown away at a moments notice.
RTS games sound amazing as I can hear all the sounds of battle both near and far.
RPG games are also great with this headset as if you are like me you want to hear the sound effects and usually the amazing soundtracks.
Lastly, the Sharkoon headset has the most features I have seen on a headset.
It comes with all the connections to be used both in the US and Europe.
It comes with all the connections to be used with a variety of gaming platforms.
It works with Playstation 3, Playstation 4 (newer model of it), Xbox 360, Xbox One (newer model of it), PC and Mac.
All in all this is a very great headset for gaming enthusiasts and I highly recommend it.
