Ladies and Gents. It's Tuesday, meaning it's time for another product review/test video. Today I am testing out a set of Sades A60 gaming headphones. You may be wondering, why I am testing out a set of gaming headphones when I focus mainly on podcasting gear. Well, you raise a good point. The reason I was testing out this set of headphones was for people who are guests on podcasts, but do not have podcasting gear. Rather than having to go out and purchase $150 in gear, you could just buy $30 gaming headphones and be good to go.
I was hoping that my first test would be amazing, however, these headphones are not right for what I was looking for. The headphone audio sounds great. They have a very wide range and allow for great audio, and even allow for a 7.1 surround sound effect (that I did not test out). However, they do not fit tightly on your ears and they feel as though they will fall off your head constantly. The loose fit also means that there is minimal to no sound dampening. You hear everything that's going on in the room around you which is no good.
The microphone is the most important aspect when it comes to podcasting, and this mic is garbage. It is a unidirectional mic which is a good quality to have, but other than that, this provides unusable audio. The audio sounds thin, and lacks any presence and you can't adjust the location of the mic to get better audio.
If you're looking for a pair of gaming headphones, I think that these headphones would work just fine. They are comfortable, the mic is decent enough for gaming, and they are cheap! Now if you're looking for a pair of gaming headphones to podcast with, these are not them. My hunt will continue. Let me know if you have any questions about the mic in the comments below and I will see you with another review on Tuesday.
