Sharkoon SKILLER SGH3 Stereo Gaming Headset | Circumaural Ear Pads | 53 mm Speaker Drivers | Detachable Microphone with Pop Filter | Modular Cable System with TRRS and 3.5 mm Stereo Jacks | Cable Extension with Inline Controller | External USB Sound Card with Hardware Equalizer and Virtual Surround Modes | MSRP 59.90 Euros With the SKILLER SGH3, Sharkoon introduces the most versatile stereo headset of the SKILLER series. The Hi-Fi capable 53 mm drivers promise a forceful sound which can be adjusted according to personal preferences via the external USB sound card. The sound card incorporates a hardware equalizer and is supplied with the headset. The straightforward design, detachable microphone and modular cable connections should also make the headset attractive for mobile use.

The Sharkoon SKILLER SGH3 stereo gaming headset presents a design in matt black which aims to be both classic and modern. The typical characteristics of the SKILLER series can be found via the glossy black logo on the ear pads and the design of the metal head frame, which is presented in the color dark titanium. The circumaural form and generous padding of the ear pads should both effectively dampen ambient noise and provide comfortable wear of the headset. In addition, the padded headband can adjust to the user’s head thanks to its flexibility and spring-loaded suspension. This should guarantee both stability and optimal comfort.

With its 53 mm drivers, the SKILLER SGH3 aims to impress with a sound in which bass has the emphasis. If other tones are desired, the sound can be modified at any time using the external USB sound card with its hardware equalizer. The sound card provides a choice of modes with different highs and lows as well as virtual surround effects. The device can be controlled manually without software. Alternatively, with software, three virtual surround modes can be activated, balanced for music, gaming or film. For voice chats, the SKILLER SGH3 has a flexible omnidirectional microphone with pop filter. The microphone can be easily detached, allowing for the mobile use as headphones.

The SKILLER SGH3 is connected via the integrated cable, with its TRRS stereo jack, to smartphones, PS4 and the Xbox One Controller as well as notebooks and ultrabooks. The cable has a length of 110 cm for mobile use. The included extension gives a total cable length of 260 cm and has two stereo jacks, enabling the headset to be used with conventional PCs. Both the inline controller, which is integrated in the extension cable, and the external USB sound card provide both volume control and microphone mute. The external USB sound card can be connected to the headset either via a single 3.5mm TRRS cable or via two 3.5mm stereo jacks for microphone and headphones.
