Description of the Edifier 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming headset:
The Edifier 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset is made for novice gamers looking for 7.1 surround sound on their PC. The headset's virtual surround lets you pinpoint where important sounds, such as footsteps, reloads, and shots are coming from, so you'll have your opponent in your sights for some time before they finally see you.
The closed design will keep distractions at bay and the unidirectional microphone ensures that your teammates can only clearly hear you.
Thanks to the inline remote, you'll always have the microphone's volume and mute function at your fingertips.
The Edifier G20 was launched along with the Edifier G4 some time back as part of Edifier’s latest gaming line up.
Edifier’s gaming headphones naming convention is somewhat similar to DSLR manufacturers’; the fewer the digits the better.
The first thing that comes to mind is that these headphones look a lot cheaper than the Edifier G4. While the Edifier G4 at least tried to make it a little more attractive with some metal mesh and red lighting, you get none of that here.
There is glossy plastic with a carbon fiber-like finish and some red trim. Concentric circles run inside the red ring, with the Edifier logo emblazoned on yet more glossy plastic. It’s all plastic here. Edifier's G20 Professional Gaming Headset has a 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound that will make you feel like you are in the game.
It features extra padded comfort for long hours of play. Make use of the Omnidirectional microphone to connect with your friends. At the top of the headband, we find Edifier’s tagline “A Passion for Sound”. Edifier is really passionate about good sound.
The controller here is the same one as on the Edifier G4, but luckily this time it is wired a lot more logically. The mute button actually works as a mute button, as does the microphone switch which toggles the microphone instead of the vibration feature on the Edifier G4.
Enjoy a virtual 7.1 surround sound while gaming. Hear where your opponents are coming from all directions and get the jump on the competition before they know what hits them.
Adjust the headband to fit the size of your head. Make the fit as tight or as loose as you like it.
Being able to adjust how it feels is a key to comfort and comfort lets you dominate the competition.
EXTRA PADDED COMFORT:
Enjoy ideal comfort for long stretches of game time. Don't take breaks because of the feeling of discomfort. The padded headset enables you to game on into the hours of the morning.
The Edifier 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset extends quite a bit to accommodate larger heads, but it doesn’t have any folding mechanism to make it easier for you to bring it to the next LAN party.
The extending arm is also plastic, which does raise concerns about its durability. Comfort is decent, courtesy of the generous padding on the headband and earpads.
Omnidirectional Microphone and USB Connections:
The Edifier 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset features a rotatable omnidirectional microphone. Swing up when you want the microphone out of your face and out of sight.
There is a tiny red activity LED right above the mute button. Swing down when it's time to get your Simple plug and play. Connect to the USB port on your gaming laptop or PC and get to gaming quick and easy.
The Edifier 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset sounds great, and especially so if we are comparing in the gaming headphones category.
The headphones do not offer a huge soundstage, but it is decent enough to get spatial cues for a good gaming experience.
Turn on the virtual Edifier 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset to get better sound. One thing about the Edifier G20 was that it seemed more tuned to a balanced sound than the Edifier G4 was.
It performs well in pretty much everything from music to gaming and is a pretty fun headphone to listen to. Mind you, this is no audiophile’s dream gaming headphone though.
Highs and Lows of the Edifier 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset:
It sports somewhat boomy bass by default, but that can easily be rectified with the equalizer feature in the Edifier Audio Center. These aren’t the headphones to go for if you need sparkly highs.
The highs sound a bit veiled and lack the sparkle and definition you will enjoy in pricier headphones. Of course, this is a gaming headphone, and you won’t be focusing much on the higher frequencies when gaming.
