It ticks all the right boxes concerning cool features, such as the mystic light RGB System. Of course, RGB lighting isn’t exactly essential, but it’s certainly a fun thing to have. It also comes with an on-cable controller, software customisation, a carry pouch to keep everything safe when not in use, and most importantly, high-resolution audio certification.
