This is my very first open-back headphones away from the mainstream "gaming headset". After seeing all the good reviews on reddit and youtube i got extremely excited to get my hands on it and now that i've been using it for a week, all i can say is it's "just fine".
With all the hype i read around the internet, and good reviews for gaming use, i was really planning to use it mainly for gaming but i decided to just use it mainly for music instead. Im not saying im not satisfied, im just saying it's just not what i expected.
The sound quality and bass is really good but i'll definitely recommend an AMP for this.
But for gaming...
If you're a competitive gamer, this is not the right one for you. You might see a lot of reviews claiming it is good for gaming but it's not. Take it from a guy who had used even the cheapest headset and still find it better than 58x. It has a very very NARROW sound stage which would make it harder for you to pinpoint exactly where the enemies footsteps/gun shots are coming from if the enemies aren't very close to you which means its only good on close combats. I can barely hear players/enemies which is only 4-5 meters far. And when there's a lot of sounds going on near you, the sound imaging becomes useless and you'll have trouble hearing other sounds on further distances. Unlike on my previous headphones (Cloud Alpha/Flight) where i can still hear footsteps from further distances even if im engaging in shoot outs with several squads. (Apex Legends).
I'll be using my Cloud Flight whenever i'm gaming and the 58x when im chilling with music.
For gaming: NOT RECOMMENDED
Music: Yes, Definitely!
Oooof couldn't disagree more that they're not good for gaming. Sound stage may not be huge but the directional awareness and accuracy from where the sound is coming from is phenomenal. To each their own
What headphone u reccomend for comp gaming
