Compared with other gaming headsets, the DAREU A730 has more personality in appearance. The design of large earmuffs + fabric wide head beam looks larger than the head beam of the general headset. The two metal beams on the top have relatively good anti-bending properties, and the overall look is very cool. The headset in my hand is the yellow version, in addition to black and white two colors. Relatively speaking, the visual impact of yellow is stronger.
The width of the head beam is about 70mm, and the inner side is made of woven mesh material and filled with memory foam. The outside of the head beam is made of imitation leather and printed with the DAREU brand logo. This unique wide head beam design brings a more comfortable wearing experience and can reduce the stress on a large area. In addition, the headphone design with a 54° inclination angle makes the head beam more suitable for the head when worn. Combined with elastic damping feedback, it will be more comfortable to wear and suitable for long-term wear.
The size of the headset is relatively large, and the outer side is made of plastic. And adding a paint process to its surface, it will show a bright texture and bring a good visual perception. In addition, the headset adopts an oblique four-sided design, which is easier to fit with the slightly inclined ears, and has a stronger sense of wrapping. After wearing the headset, there is a certain physical noise reduction effect, which enhances the sense of immersion.
The earmuffs on the inside of the headset are not completely made of imitation leather, but are made of two materials: fabric sponge and leather. The side close to the skin is made of fabric material, which is relatively skin-friendly and has a delicate and soft touch. With the internal sponge, it can play a certain buffering effect, and it will not bring too much pressure while wrapping the ear.
There are no buttons on the headset, just a 3.5mm microphone jack on the left headset. Equipped with a pluggable hose microphone, you can choose to install or remove the microphone according to your actual situation. At the same time, the microphone adopts two colors of yellow and black, which maintains the same color with the main body of the headset. It is worth mentioning that the microphone jack is equipped with a rubber stopper to prevent dust.
Wire-control Sound Card & Sound Quality
The headset cable adopts a segmented design, and the default is a 3.5mm audio cable. There is also an audio cable for a USB wire-controlled sound card. When the microphone of the computer and the headset are two separate Jacks, you can connect the wire-controlled sound card to the computer in the form of USB, and the sound card can also adjust the sound effect.
The USB wire-control sound card is equipped with many function keys, such as the one-key mute function, which can mute the sound with one key when the microphone is not turned on. The left side of the wire-control is equipped with a volume +/- button to adjust the volume. In addition, the sound card is also equipped with 3 EQ modes (Music/Game/Movie). You can switch the sound effect through the EQ button, and you can switch it according to the usage scene during use.
It is worth mentioning that the USB wire-control sound card of DAREU A730 has added the function of 7.1 virtual sound. The dual channel can be simulated into multiple channels through an algorithm, and the sound from different directions can be used in the game to enhance the immersion of the game. In some games, you can turn on the virtual 7.1 channel on the USB wire-control sound card, and the operation is very simple.
DAREU A730’s performance in sound quality is not bad. It is equipped with a 53mm dynamic sound unit, which is not bad for gaming headsets at the same price. The actual sound of the bass is retained to a certain extent, and the detail richness of the sound is also acceptable. The overall sound quality performance is quite satisfactory, which can meet the needs of gamers for sound quality. In terms of compatibility, DAREU A730 can be used on mobile phones, tablets, computers and game consoles.
The DAREU A730 is a wired headset for mass gamers at an affordable price that fits most people’s budgets. The special over-ear design can be worn for a long time without fatigue, suitable for long-term wear and use. The unique look also enhances the personalization that gamers consistently seek. The equipped segmented cable can match different devices. The wire-control sound card can switch between different EQ sound effects and virtual 7.1 sound effects with one key, and the operation is simple and clear. Among entry-level wired gaming headsets, the DAREU A730 is a not-bad choice.
