Saitek Cyborg 5.1 Headset
AppearanceI was impressed by the care Saitek took in packaging the Cyborg 5.1 Headset. While the overall package is wrapped in plastic, the headset comes packaged into their own form-fitted carrying case that zips up. Naturally, the driver CD and manual come packed in behind the protective case. Like I mentioned earlier, I like the care Saitek took when creating packaging and storage for this headset.
The cover to the casing is held on by a zipper and is completely removable. I put the zipper back together so I could take it over a friend's house for the evening to test it out while in a gaming session. The only thing it's missing is a handle.
The headphones themselves look comfortable. Each earpiece is about 90° twistable in either direction, both for comfort and so they fit into the covenient carrying case. The inside of the ear pieces are cloth, not leather. You tend to find leather in higher-quality headphones, but I'm content with cloth as long as they sound good and feel good. Sure enough, there is plenty of padding under the cloth; it's not too firm or too soft. I can't wait to put them on!
On the outside of the earpieces, there are ventilation holes, but I'm not sure for what. They may be there to let sound out rather than heat. Directly above them is the Cyborg Logo, which supposedly lights up when you're in 5.1 mode. We'll have to look at that when we plug it in. The headband between the two earpiecse is adjustable. On either side there is "cyborg" written out, and a piece of leather is situated at the top for added comfort. Saitek says these will fit any head!
Saitek has the aesthetics of headsets down. The Cyborg 5.1 Headset is a beautiful headset that looks top-notch with only one or two exceptions. Now that we know what we're dealing with, let's take a look at how they work with our dear computers.
