As soon as you pick up the headphones you can feel the build quality of the headphones . They feel sturdy and premium . The chasis build out of high quality aluminium and high quality plastic and that is  why they are on the heavier side that weighs at around 320 gms . The headband is made up of soft leather band and it feels comfortable. There is hyperx branding over the headband and the color combo of red and black looks pretty dope.

These are closed over the ear headphones  which can cover your whole ears due to their large cup size .It has memory foam leather ear pads which are super soft and comfortable. They are so soft that you will keep playing with them . I had no trouble watching 4 episodes of daredevil in single sit . Though your ears will get slightly warm and you will have to give them fresh air for couple of seconds. The cable has nylon coating over it so no fear of breaking .The 3.5mm audio jack has 4 poles and its gold plated .

Now moving to the sound quality , It has the best sound quality you can get for a price tag of $80 or around 3500 ruppees . If you love to listen music  or watch tv series or play games for longer hours then these headphones are for you . It has nice and clean deep bass so it won’t disappoint bass heads . The 53mm large drivers do help in creating crystal clear sound . But note that it will not be as good as headphones build for only music as these headphones  are mainly for gamers .

The  mic provided with headphones is detachable and  sounds decent . It is good for gaming and skype calling .Nothing special or exceptional .

Now moving towards the things I didn’t like about these headphones . First of all the cable is non detachable . It would have been better if the cable was detachable  . The cable connected to headphones is short but you do get a 2m extension cable . Secondly I didn’t like the cables connecting two ear-cups .Many times they stuck in my fingers when I etched my head 🙂 Hope they will fix this in  upcoming models .
