A great performing head that’s easy on the pocket.
For its price, the Sades Armor does the job perfectly as one of the most affordable gaming headsets we’ve tested. It has a great build quality, good sound output, and costs only 149 AED. What else could you ask for?
A good gaming headset is at times difficult to find. You usually need to scour multiple options to see what would fit your criteria and of course your budget. Several gaming headsets now offer a lot of features, but all of them come at a price. For the Sades Armor Gaming Headset, you’re looking at a good performing headset that costs only 149 AED.
You would of course have some doubts about its performance considering the price, but the Armor is more than capable of handling those intense action games or the slightest whisper on a horror game. You have 50mm drivers that offer a decent sound output, offering audio that can match more expensive headsets. It works well with moves and music too, and stereo separation is excellent which added to the listening experience.
The Armor comes in a lightweight metal frame with a padded headband and soft padded ear cushions. This combination makes it easier to wear the Armor especially when playing for long periods. The build is surprisingly great considering its price.
Each earcup comes with a glowing RGB light that can light up in different colors or a steady solid color. RGB lighting isn’t really to my liking, but once I changed it to a red color that matches the rest of my desktop, I slowly started to enjoy it. Even the microphone has a light, which I didn’t really like – thankfully that can be easily turned off.
The Armor is powered by USB that you can plug-in to your PC and I’ve tried it on a PS4 and it worked perfectly. There is an in-line remote control that houses most of the basic functions lie volume, lighting along with mute options. It’s easy to use and it saves you the hassle of going through the computer when changing a setting.
Once you install the drivers, you will see an additional tab on the sound properties of Windows 10. This is where you can check out the Realtek Effect that tweaks audio for a different sound output. I didn’t find any difference between the different choices available, and I ended up just turning off the function since the sound is already great.
The Sades Armor Gaming Headset is now available across all Geekay branches in the Middle East.
