Gaming headsets review: Head, set, go!

12 gaming headsets put to the test

MSI DS502

MSI hasn't been active in peripherals for too long, the DS502 is the brand's second generation headset. One thing is for sure: when you connect it, you know that you are wearing a gaming headset. The red light blasts out in every direction, including out of the boom microphone. The latter incidentally feels shaky, and it doesn't help that it rotates on the left ear shell. You can't just adjust it quickly.

The large round ear shells surround your ears completely, but they are very big (just like in the case of the SteelSeries Siberia, for which MSI had a licence once and which seems to have been more than inspiring here) and they almost rest on your neck. Only fit for large heads, or you would have to wear a large hat under it.

When listening, we miss a lot of bass and the highs are also largely devoid of detail. Only for the mid frequencies, the DS502 is sitting pretty, and therefore the first impression is still okay. The 'bass on' button in the very clunky controls on the cord seems to have little effect. Generally, we can't be very enthusiastic about the somewhat veiled sound quality. There is also no very convincing 3D effect. The third generation of MSI headsets is due to arrive later this year, and after our impression of the DS502 we would wait for the new generation before buying this one.
