Today, we are going to review the Aukey GH55 Virtual 7.1 RGB surround sound headset, which is... a bite. To make it easier to digest, we will refer to it as GH55 in the rest of this review.

This is our first earphone review on WePC, but we will try to cover all the information you need to know about these earphones. If we missed some important information, or you just have a question that this comment did not answer, please let us know in the comments below, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Less gossip, let's get started.

RGB effect Occasionally out of sync, the software sometimes fails to detect the headset

. Taken from the AUKEY product page, we have listed the following specifications:

In addition to the listed specifications, this headset also provides RGB lighting effects and virtual 7.1 surround sound audio, as well as its own Sceptre GHS5 sound software, 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 decals are actually...well, decals, I find it a bit unusual. A cool keyhole design!

I feel pretty good. My head is bigger than some, but the headphones have been adjusted to fit me perfectly, and I won’t feel any discomfort after wearing them for a long time. The weight is obvious, especially if you're used to earplugs or low-profile headphones, but it's not far-fetched at all and easy to miss for 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 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 rather than me on my left. . Ultimately this is a minor and manageable issue, but many headphones allow you to wiggle 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 on your part (except to wear them correctly on the head). The included remote control provides all the basic functions you need, including 3D audio switching, RGB lighting effects, and volume adjustment.

In terms of software, things here are very basic. There is no in-depth RGB customization here. However, there are switches for your EQ, 3D (7.1) audio, microphone, 7.1 audio, and even "room" effects controls. Although it is nice to have all these features in one place, they are exactly what you would expect from this type of product, but unfortunately RGB customization of the software is excluded, 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 Audiocheck.net page. They explained each of their tests well. Beach House's

Space Song is a very quiet song, usually kept on the quieter end, but occasionally lowered a bit. His instrument is obviously synthetic, but in the end it is clear and relaxing. Compared to other headphones I've heard this song, the GH55 offers a better than average listening experience, especially when compared to cheaper earplugs or headphones.

Dictator, composed by Scar on Broadway, is a loud and angry song. It's packed with aggressive drums and electric guitars, and it shines through in this headphone compared to other ways I listen to this song. If I had to guess why, I would say that the size and power of the controller make this headphone especially suitable for listening to loud music. Finer details, such as background instruments, can also be heard on this headset.

In general, I would say that this headset does a pretty good job in this regard, especially those that are priced between $30-40. From a sound design perspective,

Overwatch has done a lot of extra work. For example, unlike many other first-person shooters, it actually makes your teammates quieter, your enemies louder, and easier to hear when you are flanking or about to be attacked from behind. . When playing Overwatch, I didn't really feel any big difference in my situational awareness, but I did notice that due to the virtual 7.1 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 doesn't differ based on the player making the noise. I can close my eyes and really make out 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. (But in that particular scene...you 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, what I object to is the lack of customization other than these four options. You have to switch on the included remote control, which is not described in the manual (in fact, the above name is unofficial and provided by me). Although I find the RGB characteristics aesthetically pleasing in general, I still feel frustrated that they don't have any software controls, especially since the color gamut these headphones experience seems to be quite wide.

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

If you're a big RGB fan and really want complete and in-depth control of RGB settings, these headphones won't give you this experience. Which controls are too limited to do this. However, if you just want beautiful headphones and can appreciate the color rotation scheme, these should suit your needs.
