Multifun Gaming Headset with Mic and audio/mic splitter

Although this is listed on Amazon as the Multifun model 2016070504UN it is in fact the well known Kotion Each G9000 remarketed by Multifun at the special price of just £21at the time of writing.

The headset arrived nicely packaged in a mid range display box. Inside the box was the headset itself, and a large and easy to read although poorly translated User Guide which I include on the end of my unboxing video.

The headset is nicely made, robust and strong, and quite tastefully designed compared to the some gamer headsets I have tried – which is not saying much. It is moderately well padded on both the earcups, which are of the over ear type, and on the headband. It is comfortable and easy to wear even for long gaming sessions. The headset does not support Bluetooth, as an increasing number do now, but does have a dual cable to allow for USB and separate mic/audio connections. A separate audio/mic splitter is included for use with devices with separate mic and audio ports. The earcups will illuminate with bright blue LED’s when connected using the USB plug and in fact this is the only purpose of the USB plug as USB audio is not supported and there is no built in vibration engine. There is a large in line control box with a thumbwheel to control the audio volume and a on/off switch for the microphone.

What does it sound like?
The sound really is excellent and worthy of a higher priced device. There is plenty of bass, not not so much as to be overpowering, with the mid and higher frequencies being clear and well defined without being too sharp or abrasive. With the headphones on both when gaming and listening to music it is becomes a very immersive experience indeed. From a purely gaming viewpoint the lack of direct talkback through the console is a drawback but the fine sound quality and ease of use for general music playing more than makes up for it.

As headphones for general listening this headset is excellent for the price. As a gaming headset it falls down somewhat. The mic is rather muffled in use and not really suited for gaming talkback use. Take note that the USB connection is to power the LED lights and not to allow for system level interaction with consoles.

These are a large and well made set of headphones described as being for gamers but really they are are fine for general purpose listening with a full and rich sound not often found at this price. If you are a serious gamer, particularly a console user then my advice would be to walk away. If you are looking for a budget headset for music, PC Gaming and general use then this would be a good buy. As a gaming headset I would give it no more than three stars, as a GP headset then maybe four and a half or even five taking into account the low price.
