Patriot Viper V370 Stereo Gaming Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
A few years ago, I reviewed the very first Patriot Viper headset, the V360. It was pretty fantastic value for money at the time and offered a nice range of features that were sure to please anyone looking for a good headset at a reasonable price. Now they’re back again with the V370, a tweaked and improved model that promises bigger and better performance, build quality and style.
With virtual 7.1 surround sound, USB connectivity, a fold-away microphone, RGB lighting, and some rumble drivers, it’s pretty well equipped. At around £40, it’s not going to break the bank either. However, that’s a very tricky section of the market, so it’ll be interesting to see how the Viper stacks up against the competition. Steelseries, TurtleBeach and a few others have a few headsets in this price range, and there are often compromises to get the price a little lower; will we see any with the Viper? Let’s find out!
- This gaming headset will get you into the game with fully immersive high definition 7.1 virtual surround sound
- Ultra Bass Response for booming in-game sound effects
- Customizable RGB LED illumination
- Built-in foldable noise cancelling microphone
- USB interface, extra set of cloth mesh ear pads, and travel pouch

What’s in the Box
For a budget headset, you don’t expect much, but Patriot delivered the goods anyway! In the box, you’ll find the hard-wired USB headset. However, you’ll also find a lovely carry pouch to keep your headset clean and tidy, as well as some extra ear pads.
The headset comes with leather pads pre-installed, but these lovely memory foam and fabric ones are also included.
