Today I get to take the latest headset from gaming peripheral experts Ozone, the Onda Pro X-Surround Pro Gaming Headset. It’s been a long time since I reviewed an Ozone headset, in fact the only Ozone headset I’ve reviewed prior to this one would be my first ever review here at eTeknix around two years ago, which was the Ozone Onda 3HX, so it will be interesting to see how much Ozone have changed in that time.
eSports is a big industry these days, it doesn’t matter if you’re competing in a pro team and big events, or just working your way up the ladder by playing games at home, it never hurts to have a range of good peripherals at your disposal. A new headset might not make you world #1, but being able to hear everything on the battlefield, or having clear chat audio with your team can make a big difference.
Targeted at the pro gaming market the new Onda Pro is packed full of features such as DSP to help improve / tweak audio performance , a detachable omni directional microphone, powerful drivers, comfortable padding and support for both PlayStation 4 and PC. Pro or not, it’s sub £70 price tag also makes it reasonably affordable too, so it does have a lot of appeal to a wider gaming audience.
The box is really nicely designed, with a clear image of the headset on the front as well as a quick rundown of the major features, these include the advanced X-surround sound, dynamic bass technology, vocal environment noise cancellation and ultra lightweight materials used in its design.
Around the back we have a more detailed run down of some of the features, including the comfortable headband, powerful drivers, detachable microphone and the in-line remote control.
The box is actually a slip cover, inside which you’ll find a sturdy presentation style box.
Inside that box you’ll find a lovely zip-up hard case, perfect for transporting your new headset to LAN events.
Underneath the hard case you’ll find a full colour user manual that talks you through many of the DSP features and the general setup procedure.
