This week on Tech Junkies we got to check out Rosewill's RHTS-8206 USB Connector 5.1 Channel Gaming Headset with Vibration. Rosewill's a relatively new company who has the idea to bring quality hardware and affordable prices together.
If there's one thing that makes the RHTS-8206 stand out above any other gaming headset (other than its ridiculously long name), it's the sound quality. With 5.1 surround sound, 6 precision speakers and 2 subwoofers built in to the cans, on top of the explosive vibration technology that makes you feel like you're in the game, we were very impressed with how great every game and song sounded. Check out our full video review below.
Even though the set's kind of heavy, it was still comfortable after hours of wear thanks to its noise isolation leather ear cusions and adjustable headband. The cups fold up for easy storage if you want to take them on the go.
The Rosewill RHTS-8206 also has a remote attached to the cord for easy control over what you're listening to. You can also use the remote to mute yourself or others, and to set one of three vibration settings.
Recording wise, the Rosewill noise cancelling mic's sound quality isn't that great and the uni-directional microphone itself is kind of huge. It does detach, so if you just want to listen to games or music on the headset, they're perfect.
Bottom Line: At $79.99, the RHTS-8206 USB Connector 5.1 Channel Gaming Headset with Vibration is for gamers who want explosive sound quality. The vibration technology is something I've never seen in a headset before, but it's awesome in action. They don't look that sleek, but if you want to feel like you're in the game, hearing every spell or bullet firing, these are for you.
