      Sound is spot on for me once I found the right balance between game sound / chat sound / eq.

      Nothing ever felt too loud or too quiet.

      They're very comfy to wear to the point it's barely noticeable that they're on your head. Incredibly lightweight.

      Sound traversed very smoothly around me in a realistic manner with help of Dolby Atmos.

      Battery levels are decent, the headset has a voice that tells you when it's low / medium / high.

      Some games & films are gradually supporting Dolby Atmos such as Resident Evil 2 and A Star Is Born, this allows the sound to be blown out of the water. However that doesn't mean if a peice of media doesn't support Dolby Atmos that it'll sound bad. My gaming experience has improved drastically in terms of atmosphere and a believability of sounds around me despite what game or film I've experienced.
      Mic is terrible. I've come from a Turtle Beach XO One (£40) which had a very clear and realistic sense of my voice (referenced from friends on Xbox) to this headset which is regarded as if I'm talking with a tin over my mouth.

      No mic monitoring. Most headsets for gaming these days come with this feature to allow you to hear your voice levels. This helps you from shouting or being too quiet. For the price and considering most lower tier headsets have this feature, it really stoops low as a gaming headset if you're a gamer that requires something that will provide impeccable game sound and a clear high quality mic.

      It can be difficult to find the correct balance of sound for you. I experienced some very harsh and heavy crackling noises from predominantly loud sounds in-game such from a grenade, to an echo in a parking lot despite what the volume level was. For the price and it's purpose, crackling shouldn't ever appear in a gaming headset. Once I had found the right mix however, this crackling had drowned itself out of my experience but none the less it should never be there.
