This special headset is are not really looks like plastic, thanks to it’s choice of color. Well, it may looks so not pretty if we compare it with another good headset, but hey with its traditional own design style, you don’t need to be worry of breaking of this one because the body itself is pretty solid.

I can really guarantee that with this nice headset you will never face it again. Slots on this headset are made into the metal ear cups. This metal cups will allow the air coming in so even after several hours of usage you will never feel uncomfortable and sweaty.
As the result of this metal cups design, you may have found some issues on noises leaking. This case will let some external sounds come into our ears. If you are playing game in the room with yourself is not a big problem, but if there is a person beside watching TV or doing some sounds. You will get some leaking noises from these sounds.
