Marauder Universal 7.1 Virtual Surround Gaming Headset - £49.99

Watch as I give these black and red beauties a once over and enjoy some Deep Bass, 7.1 Virtual Surround and cool Vibration Technology.

Are they worth the money?

Let's find out, shall we?

Compatibility: Available for use on... Xbox One (stereo adapter is required for the older XBOX ONE controller) PS4™ (SLIM must play through TV) Xbox 360 PS3™ PC

Key Features:
Uses virtual 7.1 surround sound technology



The headphone software looks to dynamically position sounds around the game environment, so you should be able to hear enemies approaching from any direction and pinpoint their whereabouts. Venom is aiming to replicate the experience of a high end 7.1 home cinema environment



Venom have incorporated vibration technology via a second 30mm driver which reacts to gameplay cues.This adds a vibration sensation whenever explosions or loud effects come into play. Using the inline remote system, gamers can alter the vibration feedback to their liking


Build:
Wired Headset connected via USB and a selection of cables for different systems
Built for plug-and-play compatibility which allows the Marauder to be used across a wide variety of gaming formats, from console to PC

40mm drivers that are designed to deliver powerful bass

Cushioned faux leather headband and ear cups

Rotating Ear Cups (90 degrees rotation)

Plastic headband with inner metal reinforcement

Fold away noise cancelling microphone. Hidden when not in use



Comfort:

2 Hours of gaming and listening to music and I forgot I was wearing the headset.

More comfortable than most faux leather headsets I have worn.


Only slight annoyance was positioning the headband in the correct position to be comfortable. Maybe they could have gone for a bit more padding on the headband?

The earphone cable is a little on the short side for those who like to game from afar but as I'm a 'desk gamer' this didn’t really impact me too much. Maybe if you are looking for a bit more of a remote gaming experience then you could consider a dearer set of wireless headphones?



Gaming Audio Quality:
Nice and bassy when I played DOOM on the PS4. I could really feel those demons as they pelted fireballs at my head and ripped my arms off!



The vibration technology was a nice addition but I think I need to experience that on a few more games in order to fully appreciate the effect.


The 3D button ramped things up nicely and added extra punch to the bass.

Music Audio Quality:
Using Spotify on PS4 I was able to sample some tunes for an hour or so and the music audio quality was solid but not remarkable. I’d say that these were built for gaming specifically rather than music so the limitation is understandable.

The bass was pretty good though.

I also used it on my iPhone by plugging the jack straight into the phone and again it produced some solid sounds on my favourite tunes.

Microphone Quality:
Mic headphone is not great for streaming but is adequate for voice chat.




Verdict:

  • A really solid set of earphones for gaming which delivers great sound for gaming sessions
  • £50 is a great price for such a good sounding headset
  • It’s a shame the microphone just falls short of the acceptable level for streaming to YouTube etc
  • The headset feels sturdy and has good comfort levels for prolonged use
  • Highly recommended and gets an ICE COOL rating from Games Freezer
