Gaming Headset Final Thoughts

I must say the GH808 greatly exceeded my expectations. It definitely excels in PC games, as it was designed to do. I was doubtful of its performance in video content, but I was amazed at how much it enhanced my movie-watching experience.

Most of the good features of the GH808 are only accessible through the software application, which for some unknown reason wasn't included with the device. It would've been nice if the headset ear cups were on a swivel to provide a better fit.

Levetron GH808 Conclusion

The Levetron headset performed extremely well, especially in games. It gave a more immersive atmosphere to movies and TV shows and, with a little tweaking, music playback is satisfactory.

The GH808 is themed red and black like the other Levetron products, and looks quite nice. The only complaint I have is that the glossy finish on the outside of the ear cups attracts a lot of fingerprints.

While it may appear to be a little flimsy, the GH808 is actually quite sturdy and well-built. I feel that the extension bars are vulnerable to permanent deformation, and should have been made with thicker/stronger material.

Being a USB headset, the GH808 allows a decent gaming experience on multiple devices. It appears to be the optimal solution for users with gaming notebooks that don't have the option of installing a sound card. I also like that the microphone has a slot and is turned off when hidden.

At its current price of $41.99 (NewEgg / Amazon), the GH808 is a steal. Similar headsets such as the Vengeance cost twice as much without providing a vastly better listening experience.

The Levetron GH808 headset is definitely one of the better headsets I have used. If you're seeking a headset good for gaming you should definitely consider this one.
