Ozone Rage ST headset review

The Rage ST uses a single-sided cable for both the headphones and the microphone. The cable is 2.5 meters long, it features 3.5mm plugs and offers in-line controls. The wire feels pretty thin - which may make it more susceptible to breaking after a few years of use.

The in-line controller uses Ozone's familiar black and red color scheme. The front of the controller has a on/off slider for the microphone, while the other side features volume control for the headphones.

Headsets in this price class typically don't deliver top-notch audio and unfortunately the Rage ST is no exception. For my first test I tested the headset with various styles of music and I immediately noticed the Rage ST's flat sound. There's barely any bass, the midrange sounds muffled and the high-tones aren't too impressive either. While gaming the poor sound quality of the Rage ST is less pronounced. If you plan on using this headset primarily for gaming then it's quite a decent performer in its price class but for listening to music or watching movies you better look for something else.

The microphone on the other hand performs pretty nicely. It may require some tweaking to get it at the right distance so other gamers won't hear you breathing but its audio quality is more than decent. The fact that it can be detached is also a major plus.

In terms of comfort, the Rage ST isn't as good as more expensive models. The headset is relatively lightweight, I could barely feel the headband but the earcups put a noticeable pressure on my ears. It's comfortable enough for short sessions but for extended use I didn't find it comfortable enough.

Considering its low price the Ozone Rage ST isn't too bad if you're in desperate need for a headset, it's decent enough for gaming and features a handy in-line control plus a flexible, detachable microphone. The Rage ST can be found online for 26.17EUR but if you have a larger budget to spend I recommend you look for a headset with better audio quality and greater comfort.
