DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY
The headsets itself pretty much look the same as the Takstar Pro 82s but went with a rough matte texture on the earcups and more padding around the top band area and thicker earpads. While the Pro 82s had bass sliders to control its bass, they had removed it in the MH751/752s. And also, the connector was changed from 2.5mm to 3.5mm. You can’t see any branding on the headset itself aside from the signature Cooler Master hexagon pattern.
USER EXPERIENCE AND CONCLUSION
The sound signature out of the box is a bit bass heavy for me. While mids are good and clear especially when you listen to a lot of female vocal songs. The highs have a good sparkle to it and not as sibilant to the current audiophile headset I’ve owned.
To achieve the balanced sound signature, you need to use the soundcard and tweak the EQ in the CM Portal. The sound became the same as my Takstar Pro 82s here. Having a 7.1 feature is nice but using it for music distorts and makes the sound less fun to hear and muddy.
I must say this is one of the most comfortable headsets I’ve used. It is the same as my Takstar Pro 82s with thicker padding on the earpads and the headband area. And the clamping force is strong but not strong enough to feel any strain or tightness on the head.
The microphone is quite decent. It would be nice if they included a pop filter on the mic to eliminate airy sound pickups.
The headset can be tweaked in the CM Portal. You can tweak its EQ, Microphone and 7.1 feature.
The CM MH751/752 is a great headset with audiophile sound quality plus a good microphone at a very affordable price point. Price at around 3500 pesos for the MH751 and 4000 for the MH752, just opt for the MH752 with just an additional 500 pesos from the MH751. Very good padding on the top band and the earpads. And one of the most comfortable gaming headsets to wear and very stylish which is great for outdoor use. I think it’s one of the best, or not, the best gaming headset in the market right now. The only gripe I had is the bass-heavy sound signature out of the box, but it can be easily EQ-ed on the software with the help of the soundcard.
- Good audio quality
- Solid build quality
- Can be Easily EQ-ed with the soundcard
- Detachable cable & microphone
- Thick padding on the headband and earcups
- Basically, the MH751 is the same product with the MH752 (with an included USB soundcard)
With this, I am giving it our Lason-Worthy Award and Gold Award. The MH751/752 is one of the best or not the best gaming headset in the market right now interms of price to ratio and the sound quality on this thing is superb.
