1More Spearhead VRX Headset Review

If the quality of the packaging can be thought of as representative of the entire product then the Spearhead VRX should most definitely be amazing. Much like the TripleDriver On-Ear the box is of immense quality and, although it doesn't fully show up in this photo, you should be able to see the two different textures, with the red being standard smooth box material but the black is a heavily textured design that just feels great in the hand.
Inside we find a brochure for other 1More headsets, a quick guide to the Spearhead VRX, a carry bag, sticker and both the 3.5mm and USB cables that connect the headset to your weapon of choice.
The headset itself feels like a premium item with metal used almost everywhere. The decision to go with a suspended band inside a metal frame allows a little bit of flex and the deep ear cushions maximise comfort through those long gaming sessions.
The hinges and headband are 'design heavy' but incredibly robust. If you've endured the frustratingly short life span of a cheap headset then the Spearhead VRX certainly has a solidity which should last many years.
You can see the attention to detail that has been placed into the section that attaches the ear piece to the headband. You'll also note the white 1 logo and text that both light up as we'll see on page four.
Speaking of lighting up, the left hand side, where the microphone usually is, instead has a light tube that is adjustable for length and responds to audio input. You talk, it lights up. We're not entirely sure what the use of this is, other than as a little bit of sizzle with your steak, but it's cool nonetheless.
Lastly the left ear piece contains the connectors for the cables, microphone mute and a two stage wheel. Regularly it changes volume, click it and then scroll and it adjusts the bass/vibration. It's all within easy reach and the feel is different enough that you can tell at a grope which bit you're pressing. Many headsets have controls which all feel the same to your thumb and so you end up accidentally adjusting something you didn't want to, but not here.
