Marvo GH9065 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound Gaming Headset

How Much Does it Cost?

While Marvo often does stock items on Amazon, I couldn’t see this one at the time of writing, but you can check for stock and prices here. However, Marvo does favour a lot of smaller retailers too, and you can find this headset for around £20-22 at most of them. That’s exceptional value for money too, as the overall quality is much higher than the price tag would suggest. If you’re tight on cash or just need a quick and affordable temporary replacement, it will leave you plenty surprised.

Overview

The latest Marvo headset is certainly one of their most affordable, and actually, it’s one of the more affordable headsets I’ve ever reviewed. However, it’s certainly not a bad headset as a result. If anything, it just looks and feels a little bit old fashioned. The way the on-cable controller is designed, the rudimentary RGB lighting and the red and black design. It’s basically like a headset that I would have tested 5-10 years ago. However, that doesn’t put me off, as Marvo make absolutely no attempt at fooling their customers.

We know this is an older design, we know it’s designed to be affordable, and as a result, it REALLY is affordable. It still delivers decent performance though, and while the drivers aren’t exactly refined, they’re plenty loud and drive a thick bass tone that’s great for movies, music and gaming. eSports players may want a more open sounding headset with more treble though, but if you like a fatter sound, this is about the cheapest headset that can deliver it.

The microphone works well enough, there’s no fancy processing on it or anything, but the flexible boom and fold-away design do make it easier to live with. The on-cable controller is good too, allowing quick and easy control of the audio and surround. Plus, it has that 3.5mm jack on it, allowing you to hook into other devices. Overall though, they’re a lot of welcome bonus feature that only makes the headset more competitive.

Should I Buy One?

If you’re out for a great headset, without breaking the bank, the Marvo HG9053 is a solid choice. However, at £40 it’s almost twice the price of this model. While the GH9065 may not sound as good, it packs a punch and has plenty of features that make it a joy to use. Plus, at a little over £20, when your wallet is a little slim, it’s great that you can get a headset that leaves a smile on your face.
