Cooler Master has been coming out strong with their peripheral range lately, with their new SL600 Case, their Masterkey 750 keyboard, and now their MH751 headset. The MH751's have an unparalleled comfort level, but what other tricks does have up its sleeve (well, cable)?
The Cooler Master MH751's offer 40mm Neodymium drivers to deliver audio from your PC, console, or mobile device, along with a leatherette padding system along the earcups and headband. The earcups feature a swivel action for added comfort and customisation, enabling you to position them exactly where you want them, without compromising on security and comfort.
For the real techies out there, the Cooler Master MH751's feature a frequency response rate of 20-20, 000Hz, with a 26 Ohm impedance, and 97 dB +- 3dB sensitivity. The headband is made from steel and plastic, ensuring solid durability and a snug fit, while remaining comfortable.
The MH751's utilise a 3.5mm audio jack to connect to a multitude of supporting platforms, with a dual 3.5mm audio connector for PC's, separating the audio and microphone. The braided cable comes in at 1.5 metres, so there is no reason you will be running out of cable room, no matter what you are connected to.
The microphone features an omnidirectional pattern, with a response rate of 100-10,000Hz, and is detachable for convenience. Flexibility is key to Cooler Master MH751's, as the microphone can be adjusted to sit anywhere you need it to, thanks to the coil-like protective sheath.
First off, we need to look at the comfort of the Cooler Master MH751's. I have never experienced a more comfortable set of headphones, and that's including my short time with the Razer Nari's. In much of Cooler Master's marketing for these, they claim "The only way it could be more comfortable is if they were marshmallows". Honestly, marshmallows are even too hard to compare to these; the comfort levels really are unprecedented.
Those that wear glasses (like me) will know the struggle of the "top ear pinch", where your headphones will pinch the top of your ears against your glasses, and will crush your glasses into your skull, giving you the worst, and most impromptu, bionic augmentation. The MH751's, even after a solid 10-hour gaming session, as well as working throughout the day, were still super comfortable, they cleared my ears entirely to surround them completely, and, at times, I barely even remembered I was wearing them. Until I stood up and took my PS4 controller with me.
The adjustable earcups, as well as their swiveling action, made adjusting for my "I need to wear a cap tonight" gaming sessions super easy, and the amount of adjustability you are offered, means that any head size can use these comfortably.
The breathability of the cups was also incredible, surprisingly, as most headsets that feature a "leather-esque" padding, tend to make you hot under the collar (well, ear). Lastly, weighing in at just 280g, there is no fatigue on the neck or surrounds from prolonged usage.
The cable offers players a way to adjust the volume without having to use your keyboard, with their in-line volume adjuster. Keeping it simple, the cable also offers a mic un/mute function, allowing you to quickly mute your voice in-game, without needing a hotkey. A pretty common feature on today's gaming headphones, but its nice to see a simple implementation of them.
Speaking of the mic; the clarity is unbelievable. Not only does it sound like I am in the same room with the people online, but the mic was able to pick up any frequency I could throw at it (I like to bust out the high melodies). Personally, I am not a fan of omnidirectional microphones, and the MH751's sometimes remind me why, as Cooler Master could work on reducing environmental ambient noise by improving their noise suppression. However, in order for you to move the mic around different positions and still be heard clearly, it is necessary to have omnidirectional pick-up.
The Cooler Master MH751's sport a "timelessly good looking" aesthetic, with a black colour scheme all-around, as well as a simple logo outline on each cup. For once, I am glad there are no RGB functions, as RGB on a headset is just impractical. I mean, you can't see it.
Moving on, the cups also feature a matte feel to them, similar to a smooth sandblasted effect. It's a small and simple detail, but it prevents the MH751's from looking cheap rather than understated. Further adding to the premium aesthetic, are the adjustable headbands that expose the shiny steel, injecting that smidge of "pop".
Overall, the Cooler Master MH751's deliver a good audio experience, and what it might lack in bass, it more than makes up for comfort. Seriously, I cannot emphasise how comfortable these headphones are enough. The price range of R1100+-, is more than fair, thanks to the versatility, the clear microphone, and, of course, the marshmallow ear cups.
