Overall, I am impressed with the Asus Echelon Forest gaming headset. It features a dynamic sound stage for gaming and I found a wide range of frequencies to be clear and well balanced. It doesn’t ship with its own dedicated software like some other headsets in this price range but it doesn’t really need to as everything is calibrated well out of the box.
It is clear throughout our testing that Asus has put a lot of time in to fine tuning almost every aspect of this headset, from the clamping pressure on the head right down to the frequency response curve. I found the padding on the headset to be a bit too firm but it was by no means uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.
The microphone gets the job done, external noises aren’t completely eliminated and I did experience a little bit of feedback at times, but overall it was pleasant to use.
Not everyone will be in to the green camo military theme but if that is what you are looking for then you should definitely check out this headset. It isolates noise well, providing an immersive experience and it feels built to last.
The Asus Echelon Forest is available from Lime UK for £59.99, a very good price for a headset of this calibre.
