It was on Monday I decided to go get a new wired headset in place of the Bluetooth headset I’ve used for like ages.
I headed to Ogbunabali Road, Port Harcourt; where I usually buy electronic gadgets, computer accessories, phone accessories, office accessories, hardware and mobile devices each time I’m in Rivers State.
I regretted not going to callus miller communications; where I normally buy smart phones and high-end gadgets with at least 1.6 years warranty – this would have saved me money and stress.
When I got into the shop, Creative EP-420.MV Multimedia Headset was the first to get my attention, I glanced through the features and didn’t see any reason to think twice before giving them NGN3,000 ($16), which was actually our bargained price.
Let me advice you find time to test electronic devices bought from random shops before walking out of the shop.
I would have taken another wired headset if I had ignored the features written on the body and take my time to test and see if it was going to serve for the reason I’m in the market for it.
I needed a headset with good mic and deep bass to help in my video tutorials series I intend embarking on by this month end.
- Design: The Creative EP-420.MV Multimedia Headset looks pretty good design-wise and has long cable and good microphone positioning. If this was all I needed for a great headset I’d have scored it a 100%
- Audio Quality: The audio quality was so bad that I was willing to exchange it for just anything; both the bass, treble and just anything audio from this headset sounds bad in my opinion
- Miscellaneous: There’s a good volume control and above average frequency response rate. I was disappointed with the microphone and headset adjustability; couldn’t really fit my ear or go close to my lips – no matter how much I tried to adjust it
