A Closer Look
One of the things you notice about the Level Up! headset is the functioning VU meters on each side of the ear cups. They can also light up and change colour too, which is a nice little touch, although you wont be able to see it yourself when you are wearing them.
Connecting the headset to whatever device you want to use is as simple as just plugging in the cable in and you can use it.
Putting the headset on and wearing it, even for prolonged gaming sessions was very comfortable and the headset itself is easily adjustable.
The microphone is removable and is easy to move around to suit your needs. The quality is very good and speech comes through very clearly. There is also a chat cable included but the quality of that wasn’t very good so I wouldn’t recommend using it.
If you are using the headset on a PC, you can download some software to enable 7.1 simulated sound. The software looks and feels a little outdated but it gets the job done.
Sound wise the Level Up! produces good sound – just not great sound, especially at high volume. The sound quality is better when listening to music rather than playing games, which is a little strange considering it’s a gaming headset.
The remote functions on the cable control the microphone, the lighting on the VU meter and also the volume, these are easy to use.
The Level Up! headset is a good headset, but it’s quite pricy for a wired headset with only good sound rather than great sound, especially that sound better listening to music than for gaming.
The Meters Level Up! Gaming Headset is available now priced around £99 and comes in Red, Carbon or Silver (which is the model reviewed).
