Finally half-open gaming headset with good sound and comfort!
These are my fourth headset overall and my second wireless for the Xbox. I am really happy with the RIG 800LX and I highly recommend these.
Good sound, especially for FPS. Have also watched some Netflix movies and series and works well for that too. I'm picky when it comes to sound and I think these deliver well for the purpose. The sound is detailed and balanced. Many people would probably call it "base poor" but that is the wrong description, because there is nothing wrong with the base. It is solid and clear without disturbing the rest of the frequency register. As it should be. Good microphone boom with push-to-mute and good sound quality. Dolby Atmos license for Xbox is included (otherwise costs about SEK 170) and it actually works well.
Good quality feeling Even though some materials do not feel premium, the overall feeling of material, build quality, shape and function is very good. These kids are feeling that they will last a long time.
Smart and good solution for adjusting the jumper size so these should fit those with a small head that has a hard time finding naps that are not too far down. I have a big head and run on most of the three basic settings. Automatic adjustable headband that works great and is nice. Long range 2.4Ghz, Can go around the whole house without interference. Good battery life. Large and clear volume knobs for masters as well as game / chat on the left side which are easily accessible.
Very good comfort, nice ear pads that do not get warm, probably the first time I experienced it. Very light weight! And one of my favorite details is that these handsets look like closed designs but let through sounds anyway. For me, this is super nice, as I can feel a little strange after a while playing with headsets that are completely isolating from the surroundings. And I get no idea how loud I talk when mic-monitoring doesn't work on previous headsets I used and sometimes create problems with the sound quality so I always run it off.
As an example of ambient noise, with the RIG 800LX on me with low volume on the game, I can have a phone call through speakers with the phone lying in front of me on the desk. If I raise the sound in the RIG 800LX to a comfortable normal game volume, I can no longer hear the person in the phone call. Absolutely perfect level of how much ambient noise they emit.
If I change something, I would like a little bigger space inside the ear pads as I have big ears and they take in a little bit of a close up or down. 800LX is definitely for the larger size if you compare the market so most people would probably not notice it. I have left several kids just because they are too small for my ears. But the 800LX has so soft, cool and comfortable ear pads together with the fit and light weight so it is no problem. Equally it would have been nice with usb-c so I can have a cable to charge both the headset and the handset.
Easy to get started on first use. Plug the USB dongle into the xbox. Turn on the headphones and pair with the dongle in seconds. On with them, adjust them. Enable and configure Dolby Atmos in minutes and get started playing. Shortly after, I hardly think I have them on my head. That feeling is the same after 3 hours of continuous play. That's a good grade.
