Aukey gh 55 virtual 7 1 surround sound rgb headset

Today we are going to review the Aukey GH55 Virtual 7.1 RGB Surround Sound Headphones. This is ... a bite. To make it easier to understand, we will refer to it as GH55 in the rest of this review.

This is our first review of headphones on WePC, but we will do our best to cover all the information you need to know about these headphones. If we've missed any important information, or simply have a question that this comment hasn't answered, please let us know in the comments below and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Don't gossip, let's get started.

RGB effects are occasionally out of sync, and the software sometimes fails to detect the headset.

Taken from the AUKEY product page, we list the following specifications:

In addition to the listed specifications, this headset also provides RGB lighting and Virtual 7.1 surround sound audio, and its own Sceptre GHS5 sound software, are used to change various room effects.

In the box, you will find the headset, warranty and user manual. Almost as you would expect, although the warranty decal is actually...well, the decal, I find it a bit unusual. A cool keyhole design!

I feel pretty good. My head is bigger than some, but the earphones have been adjusted to suit me very well, and I won’t feel any discomfort after wearing them for a long time. The weight is obvious, especially if you're used to low-profile earplugs or headphones, but it's not far-fetched at all, and it's easy to miss over long periods of use. The

pads are very soft and comfortable, and the outer pads are made from some kind of hard plastic. It doesn't feel as high-quality as steel, but it's not as heavy and it doesn't necessarily feel cheap.

The real star of this case is the headset strap, which automatically adjusts to the size of your head and fits comfortably.

One caveat, and what bothers me the most, is that the headphone cable comes out of the left side of the headphones. Admittedly, this is unique to me and my setup, but because it's coming from the left, it's more inconvenient for me to route the cables correctly without damaging my desk, because my computer is on my right instead of me on my left. . Ultimately this is a minor and manageable issue, but many headphones allow you to move just the cord, so it's still worth pointing out.

If I use a scale of 1 to 10 to assess the overall comfort of this headset, I would give it a point of 8. I am sure there is room for improvement, but I certainly cannot complain about what I have obtained.

When it comes to basic usability, there is no problem here. Headphone adjustments require almost no effort from you (except for wearing them correctly on your head), and the included remote control provides all the basic functions you need, including 3D audio switching, RGB lighting effects, and volume settings.

As for the software, the things here are very basic. There is no in-depth RGB customization here. However, there are switches for your equalizer, 3D (7.1) audio, microphone, 7.1 audio, and even "room" effects controls. Although it is good to have all these features in one place, they also almost meet your expectations for this type of product, and unfortunately exclude software RGB customization, which we will discuss in more detail below.

Now, let's continue discussing quality.

For our tests, we used three different test methods:

Next, we will discuss the results of each test.

If you don't know what this all means, but are interested in learning more, we definitely recommend that you check out the page. They explained each test well. Beach House's

Space Song is a very quiet song, usually kept on the quieter end, but occasionally lowered a bit. Its instrument is obviously synthetic, but in the end it is clear and relaxed. Compared with other headphones I have listened to this song, the GH55 provides a better listening experience on average, especially when compared to cheaper headphones or earphones. The

Dictator of Broadway Scar is a loud and angry song. It is full of aggressive drums and electric guitars, and it shines in this headset compared to the other ways I have listened to this song. If you have to risk guessing the reason, I would say that it is because of the size and power of the driver, which makes this headset particularly suitable for listening to loud music. The finer details, such as the background instruments, can also be heard in this headset. Overall, I'd say this headset does a good job in this regard, especially in the $ 30- $ 40 price range. From a sound design perspective,

Overwatch has done a lot of extra work. For example, unlike many other first-person shooter games, it actually makes your teammates quieter and your enemies louder, making it easier to hear when you're flanking or about to get attacked from behind. Playing Overwatch, I didn't really feel any big difference in my situational awareness, but I did notice that due to the 7.1 virtual surround sound, my aural mapping of the location of things was much better than before.

I saw a bigger difference in Team Fortress 2. It also has a good sound design, but it does not differentiate based on the player making the noise. I can close my eyes and really distinguish everything I hear. This is an achievement

Whether in the game or outside the game, my voice sounds very clear. Therefore, I am confident to recommend it as a gaming headset, especially since I can still communicate clearly with industrial fans running at full speed. (Although in that particular still want to use push-to-talk.)

Now, it's time to discuss additional features...that is, RGB. The RGB lighting effect of this headset seems to have four modes:

Among these four modes, I regard "Rainbow" as my personal favorite. However, I am against the lack of customization other than these four options, you need to switch on the included remote control and there is no description in the manual (actually, the name above is unofficial and provided by me). Although I find that RGB features are usually aesthetically pleasing, the lack of software to control them still frustrates me, especially since the color spectrum passed through this headset seems to be wide.

In addition, I noticed that sometimes during prolonged use, the effect will stop syncing on both sides. Synchronization at startup and synchronization at restart; but for whatever reason, after a certain period of time, one earbud will be significantly behind the other earbud compared to the other, at most a full second behind.

If you are a big fan of RGB and really want complete and in-depth control of your RGB settings, these headphones will not be able to provide you with this experience. The existing controls are too limited to do this. However, if you just want some beautiful headphones and you can appreciate the color rotation scheme, these should suit your needs.
