Ozone Rage ST headset review

In recent years we've seen the launch of several new brands in the PC gaming peripheral market. Created by and for gamers, Ozone Gaming is a Spanish brand that introduced its first products in 2010. The company offers gaming mice, headsets, keyboards, mousepads and other accessories.

This is the first time DV Hardware reviews a product from Ozone. In this review, I'm taking a look at Ozone's Rage ST, a relatively low-end gaming headset that's sold for under 30EUR. I have the blue version but you can also get the Rage ST in four other looks: black, white, red and yellow.

The Rage ST ships in a cardboard box with a plastic window that prominently shows off the headphone's design. With a weight of 300g the Rage ST is relatively lightweight.

  • My first impression of the headset is that it looks a bit too flashy. The blue design stands out too much and the glossy plastic makes the headset feel cheap. The black version seems classier though but I can't say for sure as I haven't seen it in real life.

    The earcups are made from hard shiny plastic, they both feature Ozone's logo.

    The headband is adjustable in height but that's the only adjustment you can find on these headphones. The earcups can't swivel nor fold.

    The earcups are large in comparison with the rest of the headset, they have a circumaural design with a closed back and feature 40mm drivers. The cups have a somewhat industrial design and feature the same foam padding as the headband. The foam is quite rigid, I'd prefer a more flexible padding for greater wearing comfort.
