A Closer Look


The first thing I noticed about the Ensense was that high quality cable, a thick black and orange braiding gives the cable an ultra premium quality look and feel.

The in-line controller is another stand out feature, it’s pretty big, but certainly not intrusive. The design looks really cool and it’s easy to find the buttons you need with ease.

The headset is finished in hard wearing matte finish black plastics, finished off with orange and chrome coloured highlights. It’s a pretty loud design, but I think it looks pretty awesome and it’ll certainly appeal to a gaming audience with those bright colours and those funky shaped panels.

The headband is very durable and while the drivers can’t be rotated, they are angled slightly to provide a comfortable fit.

The headband extenders feature a good range, so the headset should be suitable for younger players, as well as adults.

The headband is nice and solid, there is enough flex to provide a comfortable fit, but I have no doubt it’ll survive more than a few hard knocks and bumps.

The inner section of the headband features two padded areas, each filled with soft foam and covered with soft leather.

The ear cups are also covered with the same foam and leather combo, which should provide a very nice fit, and as a nice aesthetic touch the inner lining on the driver matches that of the braided cable.

On the base of the left ear cup you can see where the cable joins onto the headset.

The headset features a LED back-lit Shogun Bros logo on the back of each driver and the left ear cup has a small recess to the microphone.

The microphone can be folded down when you need it, or hidden out of the way when not in use.

Overall I think this is a really awesome looking and feeling headset, easily one of the best looking headsets on the market although I admit that’s fairly subjective as not everyone is going to love the contrasting black and orange theme.

    Quite honestly for me the lack of a rotation point is not a con, but a pro. That is where my last few headsets have broken, despite me always taking care of them. I just have a big head that stresses that point too much.

    I’m guessing the manufacturers don’t know the meaning of ‘subtle’ or ‘restrained’. Even a blind person could see these things in the dark.
    Just about every new product that gets flung out the door nowadays has the words has the word ‘pro gamer’ inscribed somewhere on it, in fact there are probably more ‘pro gamer’ items on the market than there are actual pro gamers but I digress. If you’re new to the… “ahem”… game like Shogun Bros is then pussy footing around is just not going to cut it even if you do have an excellent product..

      Haha I certainly get what you mean, but personally I think they could have pink flamingos painted on them and it wouldn’t matter to me. I’ll always take comfort and sound quality every time. I do like the design, but maybe dialling it down a few hundred percent wouldn’t have been a bad idea.

      • Wayne says:

        You said they sounded great and I have no reason not believe you, I was just knocking their brash approach which is probably a good way of drawing attention. That said, once they’re settled comfortably over your ears doing what they’re supposed to do with aplomb who cares what the hell they look like?… Certainly not me.

    • Peter Donnell says:

      Thinking about it, the lack of “nonsense” is perhaps one of the things that drew me to my current headset of choice, the Mionix Nash 20, sleek, understated and bitching sound 😀

      • Wayne says:

        Yup you really wrote a glowing review about them. Mionix make some great stuff and I have had the opportunity to take some of their mice for a burn (but sadly no audio gear) and I came away really impressed, unfortunately their products are pretty scarce in my neck of the woods. 🙁

    I bought this headset 2 days ago and i have to say ur review is way off as the headset as a terrible mic that picks up every single bit of playback coming through the headphones and relays it back to everyone else. Ive messed with all settings and they isnt anything at all to fix it so do yaself a favor and dont bother with this product as its not worth it.
