What would you sacrifice in order to attain a new level of comfort? There is always a trade-off when it comes to wanting certain creature comforts. What if I told you that you didn't have to sacrifice much to get there? This is the Cooler Master MH752 and it changes everything we know about comfort in the headphone spectrum.

The Cooler Master MH752 doesn’t shout at you, with sleek lines, simplistic design, and an all-black frame. You aren’t going to turn any heads with these headphones, but that’s exactly the point. Cooler Master opted for a neutral look that will fit almost every situation perfectly. Rather than a pair of RGB headphones that may cause discomfort to those around you (or are rather inappropriate to wear in public places), the Cooler Master MH752 delivers a look that will blend in with whatever you’re using, in turn, making you look a little less like a mobile rave party.
The headset itself is made from an assortment of premium materials. We get sandstone finished plastic, PU leather, and steel, making the headset feel way above its price point in the hand. The cushions surrounding the 40mm drivers are plush and rest gently above your ears when you put the headset on.
I’m really happy with Cooler Master’s approach to design, as the minimalist design showcases a premium product. Even the logo is just a CM hexagon over a sandstone finish. There is no folding mechanism on this headset, which adds to the overall rigidity to the frame itself. Nevertheless, the detachable mic and braided cable make it easy to pack into the included carrying case and move about with it. The braided cable does come with a locking mechanism, which was definitely another welcomed feature, though, you will probably have a hard time finding a replacement for it.
Wearing the headset, the first thing that overpowers everything else is just how incredibly soft the earpads are. In addition to the lightweight construction and weak clamping force further, the cups improve the comfort, to let you go hours with the headset on.
Out of the box, you can just plug in the headsets and use them without the prerequisite of installing software. Even the virtual 7.1 surround sound can be turned on and off with a simple button press on the included DAC inline controller.
That being said, if you want to further enhance your experience, you can use Cooler Master’s Portal software to load different profiles, where users can customise the sound to their taste. The beauty of the MH752 is the USB DAC that just squeezes that little bit extra from the drivers on offer.
As for how the headsets sound - it’s not bad at all. The headsets on their own sound pretty good, with non-overpowered bass and a higher priority on bright mids. The treble sounds kind of muffled out but it is more than good enough for music and games. The lack of bass and muffled treble is more than made up by the resounding clarity in this price range.
I used the headset on my phone, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch before making use of USB DAC on PC and the headsets faired rather well. The MH752 performed well in all situations, going as far as the devices would allow. For those searching for a set of multi-purpose headphones on a budget, the MH752 definitely shines in that aspect.
While using the MH752’s DAC, I noticed a slight increase throughout the mid-high range sound. The party piece for the USB DAC - the included virtual 7.1 surround sound - basically turns any stereo audio into 7.1 surround sound, virtually. I found this feature most useful while watching movies, giving a satisfying level of immersion, but found that it was better to switch the feature off when gaming and listening to music. In terms of sound quality, your experience may vary depending on what sound card you have. The overall sound signature for the MH752 is neutral out of the box, but a simple tweak to one of the profiles will fix that.
When it came to the microphone quality, there were almost no complaints from those on the receiving end of my gaming sessions. My voice was picked up clearly, and background noise was mostly muffled out. The only complaint I received during my entire testing period in regards to the microphone, came in the form of the mic occasionally making a popping noise. This is an easy fix for those willing to get a foam cover for their microphone. As long as you don’t lose the detachable mic, the performance will be above par for almost every situation. I even took it as far as using the mic for phone calls, where the end receivers could clearly hear me and said I didn’t sound distant at all.
The Cooler Master MH752 is a great pair of headphones for those seeking ultimate comfort and a decent set of cans. The MH752 is a no-nonsense headphone, that trades gimmicks for useful features. What really makes me recommend these headphones is the minimalist design and superb levels of comfort. Something I took for granted in many of my other headphones, but the MH752 may have just converted me.
