If you’ve ever read any of my previous headphone reviews, or played some multiplayer games with me, you know how I feel about headphones. They hurt my head. I am picky.
Gaming headsets have always been an attractive option, but due to laziness and the fact that Kevin doesn’t pay me, I’ve never taken the leap. Fortunately, XRound stepped in to help me with this dilemma and sent me a couple of Aero True Wireless Gaming Headset to try.
So how do these compare to other gaming-focused audio products? Let’s find out.
What is in the box
With the Aero TW earbuds, you get the charging case, a charging cable, the earbuds, and six different sets of tips to find the perfect fit. Half of the tips are meant to help with noise cancellation and they do a decent job. It’s not going to be anything like active noise cancellation, but it does help muffle external sounds.
The headphones have multiple modes, with music and game modes. XRound also included a Bluetooth wireless dongle, which allowed me to test the headphones on PC. The Eros also work with PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and mobile devices.
Overall, it’s about what you’d expect from a sub $ 100 pair of headphones and that’s fine.
Although not technically in the frame, the XRound MyTune app (Android and ios) can also be downloaded to make sound profile adjustments, as well as to switch between music and game modes. Personally, I found that adjusting different things didn’t matter much, and when it did, it only made things worse. I stuck with the XRound surround sound option for my tests.
Battery life is solid in these headphones, allowing for over 6 hours of battery life on a single charge and with the carrying case, you can get an additional 24 hours of charge.
How do XRound Aero headphones sound?
Obviously this is the main selling point of a pair of headphones and this could be considered even more important when reviewing a pair of gaming headphones, where sound plays a huge role.
First of all, if you are going to use them for gaming, make sure to keep them in game mode or latency will be an issue. Fortunately, when using the mode, everything comes out almost flawless. I say narrowly here, because I occasionally had a couple of connection issues that would lead to some latency.
In terms of sound, the XRound Reality Lite 3D system does a good job of replicating sound coming from different directions, which is definitely a must for competitive multiplayer games.
Sadly, the actual sound produced by these headphones definitely left me wanting more. Not that the sound is bad, necessarily, it’s a bit empty. In reality, nothing has force and I would define the sound as “hollow”.
The bass is a low point (no pun intended) and only groans a bit at the finish line while the mids and highs are okay, but nothing to make you sing their praises.
Should you buy them?
If you’re looking for a pair of wireless gaming headsets for mobile, PC, or PlayStation, these aren’t a bad choice, especially for the price. Currently, these They go for $ 69 on Amazon.
If you’re an audiophile, you should probably avoid these, but if you just want a pair of headphones to put on when you don’t feel like putting on a pair of headphones, these will absolutely do the job.
