Zowie Hammer USB Headset

Packaging

 
Packaging
 
The Hammer comes in a fairly simple black package with a nice sized window showing a nice close-up of the headset itself. Extraneous details and logos are kept to a minimum lending an air of class to the front of the packaging.
 
The side quickly dispenses with this approach, showing an e-sports "star" who was involved in the program and their thoughts about the Hammer. I'm not totally sure who this is aimed at. We follow the industry closely but neither of the people used are the kind of names that trip off the tongue like some others. Sadly e-sports is still quite a niche event. Someone somewhere must be impressed by these names.
 
Hammer Box  Box auth
 
Taking the headphones out of the box two things become quickly apparent. Firstly, there is no manual and no drivers. This is a good thing in some ways because how difficult can a headset be. But in other ways it's disappointing that something that comes with a USB soundcard doesn't have software control. Secondly, the simple vacuum formed packaging shows where some of the costs have been cut to try and keep the price down. Don't know many of us who'd rather great packaging and a budget product than vice versa. Let's hope this proves to be the case here.
