Earlier this year, JBL revealed the release of their video gaming headset line, JBL Quantum. Thanks to the group at JBL, I was fortunate sufficient to have actually gotten the JBL Quantum 400 wired headset to not only unbox ahead of its launch in Australia but also evaluation.
Below are my thoughts on the most current gaming headset to go into the Australian and New Zealand market. Please bear in mind that Im no specialist or audiophile. My technical know-how when it concerns headsets are quite restricted however I do appreciate good, quality, comfort and noise.
Right out of package, the Quantum 400 appears like a common video gaming headset. With a metal black finish, the headband feels durable and made from a long lasting plastic product that release a sleek and sleek look, while being exceptionally light-weight. The ear cups are made from memory foam ear cushions that practically look like pillows for your ears. With the addition of a boom mic, the complete headset definitely depicts the made for gamers design that is not only appealing but likewise functional.
Obviously, the Quantum 400 boasts a game-chat dial that is Discord licensed. Ive not dived into this function yet to really comprehend how it works with Discord/Team Speak however it seems like another valuable feature to have.
When it comes to the boom mic, this JBL headset is the very first that Ive used that has it in built rather than an include on. In my experience, headsets frequently focus more on the noise you hear through the ear cups rather than the sounds you develop through the mic.
Another key feature that I was delighted to find is that the headset is made to work on every platform. This includes PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, mobile and even Macs! Ive never ever stumbled upon a headset that worked across this lots of platforms before, making this specific headset such worth for money.
My favourtite function of the headset is having the ear cups light up with RGB colours, which can be customised. Utilizing the JBL Quantum Engine software application, you can pick a large range of colour selections to jazz up your headset, something I very much enjoy doing. The software itself is relatively simple to have a cyberspace and utilize, state-of-the-art style to it, making it seem like youre personalizing some serious tech!
The Quantum 400 functions an immersive surround sound that enables you to hear practically everything (or what appears like everything, including steps crunching on gravel). This function originates from the inclusion of the JBL QuantumSound Signature innovation, which offers your sound levels that additional increase. Consider it as similar to Dolby Atmos, however without requiring to download a special add on. Bear in mind however, the JBL QuantumSound is not offered on console or mobile gadgets.
As somebody who wears glasses and cant tolerate having something sit on my head for too long, the Quantum 400 offered the much needed comfort I prefer when using a headset. The ear cups didnt press down on my glasses frames and I didnt feel my ears grow too hot after a couple of hours of use.
This isnt game-changing, it is an essential aspect when it comes to picking which headset I use for prolonged usage. My ears felt fairly cool throughout use and the light weight of the headset total permitted me some breathing space. It was much better than other headsets in the past that my hair would get caught in, especially as I started to sweat, or have pinch the sides of my head.
Reduce of Use
Theres very little I can truly fault about the Quantum 400. Its comfy, it sounds terrific, its light and it looks smooth. It would have to be the fact that this set were wired if at all I had to pick on one aspect I didnt enjoy.
Similar to other headsets Ive attempted, this headset was simple to utilize with a basic plug and play. I didnt need to truly utilize the JBL Quantum Engine software application if I didnt want to, as the headset worked as soon as I plugged it in to my PC and Switch.
If youre searching for a new headset to try thats value for money? Offer the JBL Quantum 400 a try.
