AUKEY GH-S5 PC PS4 7.1 Headset Gaming Music

Friday, November 02, 2018

Even if you own a decent 2.1 bookshelf speaker system, using a headset is more immersive and more advantageous than desktop speakers because with a headset you can easily pinpoint where your enemy is by hearing their footsteps.
Headsets also come with a microphone which makes it super useful for speaking to friends during a multiplayer gaming session. And, you won't be disturbing anybody either, which is one of the main reasons to get a headset in the first place.
If most of your gaming is done on PC and PS4, you want a USB gaming headset such as the GH-S3 and AUKEY GH-S5 which are compatible with both desktop and Playstation 4 machines.
The GH-S5 headset isn't wireless but it comes with a very long 2.2 meter cable with an inline remote for controlling the volume, 3D sound effect and the RGB leds.
AUKEY GH-S5 weighs 468 grams
The AUKEY GH-S5 USB gaming headset delivers big, surround sound via massive 50mm diameter speaker drivers.
The GH-S5 is a 7.1 virtual headset and like all 7.1 headsets, they try to mimic/simulate a real 7.1 speaker setup by distorting/modifying the pitch/tone of the sound to give the illusion of true surround sound. The result is good for first-person-shooter gaming but nothing else; hence many 7.1 headsets can't be really used for listening to music.
Fortunately though, the AUKEY GH-S5 PC PS4 headset comes with a very useful desktop software sound application available only for Windows PC, called 'GH-S5 Scepter".
The Scepter software lets you adjust the treble/bass frequency response, change the direction of the surround sound, tweak the microphone and even select preset sound modes.
Being able to change the equalizer (EQ) settings means you can use the AUKEY GH-S5 headset for gaming as well as music like a regular pair of headphones.
The GH-S5 headset has pretty high sensitivity 110dB/±3dB with stereo crosstalk being heard at 80dB when the left and right channels start to bleed into one another.
The signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) is above 85dB so the level of the audio signal is 85dB higher than the level of noise, making it loud and clear.
The AUKEY GH-S5 omnidirectional microphone has -43dB/±2dB sensitivity which is negative decibels (db) but close to 0dB so the microphone has a fairly high signal-to-noise-ratio so your voice gets picked up clearly without having to stick the microphone to your mouth.
The AUKEY GH-S5 microphone frequency response ranges from 50Hz to 15kHz so it has a good low end for picking up deep voices.
The earcups are big with comfortable, soft earpads that provide very good passive noise isolation so sound doesn't leak out nor does background sound leaks in.
The GH-S5 headband has cushiony padding that is breathable and it automatically adjust to your head thanks to its self-adjusting feature.
Being compatible with PC computers and PS4 games console, the AUKEY GH-S5 USB gaming headset connects via Plug and Play USB without additional drivers so the minute the headset is connected it works right away.
