Edifier Hecate GX Gaming Headset Review

Final Thoughts

Overall I think the Edifier Hecate GX gaming headset is a pretty good headset, but it is missing some extras that you’ll find on many other headsets. The sound on the headset is quite good thanks to the 50mm drivers, although for those who really like bass this headset is lacking a bit in that department. In games the sound is very crisp and clear, but we do not have any type of virtual surround sound so if you are a competitive gamer this might not be a great headset for you. The microphone quality is sort of what you would expect from a gaming headset, not much to write home about here.

The headset has two different EQ modes (Music & Gaming) and to be honest it was a little hard to tell the difference between the two. You also really have no clue what mode the headset is on. There is no voice or indication LED that lets you know the mode you are on. I also found myself accidently pressing the mode button when I went to take the headset off or on.

I really did like that this headset is plug and play, you just plug it in and you are good to go. Although it would have been nice to have some type of optional software that would let you know what EQ mode you were in, create custom EQ modes or edit the default ones, configure the RGB lighting, and more.

One thing I really like about this headset is that you can use it with so many different devices from your PC to any new console, to even your phone (USB-C). This makes it a great all around headset if you game on different devices.

Right now this headset is selling for $79.99 at our favorite online retailer. That puts it in competition with many other gaming headsets including the Razer BlackShark V2 which offers THX Spatial Audio. Overall ThinkComputes gives the Edifier Hecate GX Gaming Headset an 8 out of 10 score.
