‘Gioteck EX-05s Headset’ Review

by Phil Wheat


Headphones have always been treated with reverence by audiophiles but as videogames become more and more immersive experiences gamers are approaching gaming headphones in the same manner as music lovers do – often spending serious money on headsets that offer the best sound, comfort and voice reproduction. But fantastic comfort and superb sound don’t have to come at a high price – as anyone who has used Gioteck’s range of gaming headset will attest.

The award-winning independent gaming accessories manufacturer, has launched a new version of its top-selling wired EX-05 headset (the EX-05s) that is now compatible with Playstation 4 and like it’s predecessor, the Gioteck EX-05s headset is the ideal choice for serious gamers.

Designed with comfort in mind, Gioteck have manufactured these headsets with a super-lightweight mesh headband, which come complete with sturdy metal adjusters and deep, cushioned breathable micro-fibre ERA ear cups that ensure users’ comfort during those marathon gaming sessions! Sound reproduction is superb thanks to the EX-05′s 40mm HQ stereo drivers which deliver sharp treble and booming bass, plus they feature advanced noise reduction to eliminate any external sound interference, sans any distortion – you can hear every explosion and every gunshot in your particular favourite FPS.

The EX-05s headphones have sure-fit over-ear enclosures, leatherette earcups and deep-cushioned micro-fibre bins – which means they are comfortable, and I do mean comfortable, some of the most comfortable I’ve ever worn if I’m honest. Couple that with with a noise-eliminating flexible boom mic and integrated audio controls that reproduces your voice loud and clear to fellow gamers – with the highest level of sound clarity, delivering crisp highs and deep lows – and these are hard to beat, especially considering the low price-point.

Thankfully previous-gen owners aren’t ignored by the new EX-05s headset – cabling options with the product means that this headset also works with PS3, Xbox 360 and PC / Mac so you can play your favourite old-gen games with the same headset!

The Gioteck EX-05s is available from Game and Tesco now for between £24.99 and £39.99.

If these Geoteck EX-05s’ don’t seem like the headset for you, you can find more headsets and gaming accessories at Look What’s Cool in this awesome guide to gaming gifts.
