Cooler Master MH752 Headset Review

It seems like Cooler Master has a new colour scheme, with the MH752 going big on purple. From the front it might not be obvious, but the sides of the box, and internals, are so purple we wonder if Cooler Master are secretly fans of the Minnesota Vikings or Fiorentina. It certainly makes a nice change from the endless sea of red.
With the pricing as competitive as it is and the focus squarely upon gamers we weren't expecting the internals to be so beautifully packaged. If you were none the wiser you could be forgiven for thinking that the MH752 is a seriously expensive headset. Not only do you get a well packaged, high density foam protector with precise cut-outs, but the extras come in a box of their own, something normally reserved for products costing twice this.
To maximise compatibility the MH752 has both a 3.5mm jack and a USB 7.1 connector, both removable and both with a lock in place to ensure they don't get pulled out of their socket if you or a team-mate start flailing their arms. The microphone is also not built into the MH752 so you really could use these as a regular pair of headphones if you so chose.
The inline remote has all the bits you've come to expect from inline remotes. Volume controls for both the headset and microphone, a toggle between stereo and 7.1 modes, and the all important microphone mute so that you can maintain your online persona even when real-life gets in the way.
The MH752 has a lot of height adjustment in the sturdy hinges and leatherette covering both the ear pieces and headband. If you're sensitive to weight on top of your head then it might seem like there isn't enough padding on the headband, but in actuality the MH752 are so light that you barely notice they are there.
It's amazing how minimalist the branding on the MH752 is. We're so used to manufacturers wanting the whole world to know whose product you're wearing that the reduction of the Cooler Master logo to the simple hexagon came as a surprise. However, it speaks loudly about how strong the Cooler Master brand is that we're left in no doubt who made it, despite the lack of text or colour.
The ear-pieces are soft and the headset is very light, so it's certainly comfortable for those long gaming sessions. There is little breathability though so those with sweaty-ear syndrome might need to look elsewhere.
Lastly neither the cable nor microphone are a permanent fixture of the MH752. The microphone hole is very deep and well shaped so that it fits snugly in and shouldn't come loose no matter how frantic your head shaking becomes. The cable has a latch design to it which really helps it fit securely. Anyone who has endured a click in cable that relies on the pole pieces to keep everything together will understand what a fools errand that is and how nice it is to see a design that solves that issue.
