OVERVIEW

The grills protecting the drivers sit very deep inside the ear cups, and have the JBL logo etched into them. It’s the headset’s lone premium design touch. Photo taken by the author.

SOUND QUALITY

The dongle smartly leaves its bulky end at your PC, bringing a small headphone jack closer to where you sit. Photo taken by the author.

VIRTUAL SURROUND, DONGLE, AND MICROPHONE

I’m yelling an “ah” at a moderate volume and it’s barely registering as a blip on the mic level meter here, even though my volume is maxed. Terrible mic input! Screenshot taken by the author.
These ear pads are awesome in spite of their weird opening shape. Photo taken by the author.

COMFORT

This rotation joint is quite loose and this cable runs through there, possibly getting twisted with each rotation. Photo taken by the author.
