Viper Gaming V380 7.1 RGB Gaming Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
Patriot may be best known for its high-end storage and memory products. However, in recent years they’ve really grown into the gaming market. Their gaming division, Viper Gaming, continues to deliver great peripherals and accessories, while still being really competitive on price. They look set to do it again too, as their new Viper Gaming V380 comes with plenty of premium features, but for a very reasonable price.
Viper Gaming V380
The Viper Gaming V380 certainly comes well equipped. It features slightly larger drivers than most, with their Hi-Fi 53mm modules, which operate at 20Hz – 20kHz. Everything is USB powered, allowing you to use the built-in USB soundcard and amp, as well as the virtual 7.1 surround processing, built-in RGB lighting, and amazingly, an ENC microphone. It seems then, that the Viper Gaming V380 has a little bit of everything!
