- A solid construction
- Sounds really crisp and has a wide soundstage
- Microphone picks up voice well and is unotrusive to the face
- Colour schemes a bit childish
A new comer in the world of tech could find it a tough market to conquer, but X2 is doing incredibly well. The Dutch company sent us their new Kondor gamer headset. And a decent headset it is too.
The packaging is tough but simple, and you won’t mistake the feel of the headphones for a set costing three figures. But none of that matters. They sound great – not the best in the world, but they are nowhere near the worst either. They cost around £25 which is a true bargain.
The mic is sensitive enough and just juts out from the side, so will not get in the way. It is built into the frame of the speakers and is in a fixed position. That also makes it highly discreet.
X2 said it is built with high quality speakers and microphone. The codename series are inspired Shinsengumi warriors from the ancient Japanese empire with the Kondor joined by the slightly more expensive Kenta.
They are designed with comfort, functionality and gaming enjoyment firmly in mind. An excellent touch with these two is that the headsets are connected by a single USB connector or 3.5mm aux jacks.
Also featured is a microphone with sensitive input. The ear cup itself mostly covers your entire ear, closing off any outside interference that can cause distractions.
Enjoying amazing audio and being able to hear your opponent before you see them will always give you an edge. Dominating the game with this sophisticated gaming headset should be a little easier. So, some specs and a look at the main features.
The Kondor comes in a cool colour scheme with the logo with LED light on those over ear cups with passive noise cancellation. They really are pretty darn lightweight and with attributes like being durable and comfortable makes them hard to beat at this price point.
There is an in-line volume and microphone controller, plus 180 cm of tough cabling. For those into these things, the frequency response is 50-16000Hz; sensitivity is -42DB±3DB; impedance 2.2KOH, and is all supported be a two years warranty service.
X2 is a team of PC enthusiasts in The Netherlands, the design heart of Europe. They said they believe in exceptional style coupled with genuine product quality, redefining the meaning of affordable gaming hardware. You can find more information on the X2 website.
