Pros

  • Impressive hi-res audio quality for immersive gaming and entertainment.
  • Ambitious futuristic design.
  • Noise cancellation works well and blocks out my mechanical keyboard typing.
  • Bright RGB LED.
  • Includes 3 different detachable cables including USB C.
  • Comfortable in spite of the 400g weight.

Cons

  • The retractable microphone is low volume and in my opinion unusable.
  • RGB only has 4 different colours, blue, red, green and pink.
  • “Metal” looking elements on the headset are just cheap plastic coverings.
  • If using 3.5mm none of the main headset features work.
  • Volume roller, while nicely design is audible when wearing the headset.

KitGuru says: The Edifier GX Headset was so close to being a winner, but the poor performance of the microphone will be a deal breaker for some. The GX offers great sound quality via the 50mm drivers. If you have a decent USB or XLR microphone, the headset is worth considering as the audio quality of the drivers is stellar.
