HYTE Eclipse HG10 Wireless Gaming Headset Review

Final Thoughts

As we come to the end here I am actually pretty surprised with the Eclipse HG10. To me it comes off as a simple plug and play wireless “all-around” gaming headset and for the most part it accomplishes that. The key word here is simple. You plug in the wireless USB receiver and you are good to go, no software or anything else is needed to get up and running with this headset and I think that is where it excels. So many headsets require software to even get working properly and then sometimes there is even additional software to get something like Dolby Atmos working. None of that here, just plug it in!

Now of course you are not going to get THX Spatial Audio or Dolby Atmos with this headset, but overall the sound quality of the headset is quite good. While gaming I was still easily able to recognize where enemies were coming from and the sound of gunfire and explosions were full and made me feel like I was part of the game. For first-person shooters and action type games this headset is going to be great, but if you are playing games with a lot of dialog it will feel a bit flat, so just keep that in mind.

As far as comfort goes this definitely has to be one of the more comfortable gaming headsets that I’ve used recently. This definitely has a lot to do with the material of the headset. The vegan leather earcups really make a difference here. I can easily wear this headset for hours on end and not feel any discomfort on my ears or top of my head where the headband sits. The headset also feels quite solid and it is nice to see the headband itself is made of metal.

As I said you don’t get THX or Dolby with this headset, but it is also missing a couple of other things. If you plug it in via USB it will not be recognized as a headset and there is no 3.5mm connection. So you cannot use the headset when it is charging or runs out of battery and you can also not use it with 3.5mm devices either. I also was not all that impressed with the built-in microphone. It is ok I guess and yes this is a wireless headset, but over the past couple of years we’ve seen wireless headset microphone quality improve.

Right now you can pick up this headset at our favorite online retailer for $99, which we think is a very fair price. Overall ThinkComputers gives the HYTE Eclipse HG10 Wireless Gaming Headset an 8 out of 10 score.
