Built-in noise-cancelling shuts out background noise so you stay focused in your game. Let your teammates know what’s coming and call your plays with the crystal clear microphone which is fully adjustable to ensure clear communication with your team.
Aggressive Gamer Style – The honeycomb LED pattern in black and red gives notice when you are gaming, highlighting the revolver-style on the ear cups. Pressing on the earcups activates the illumination meaning you’re set for battle.
Premium Comfort – For extended gaming sessions, HS-G680 uses soft over-ear paddings for the earcups and a lightweight self-adjusting headband for a great fit anytime. The earcups cover the entire ear and provides great comfort even in tense gaming situations. The self-adjusting and lightweight headband makes sure its always the right fit and doesn’t add stress to your neck making you focus on your game during extended gaming sessions.
Excellent Build Quality – From the comfort to the build, the HS-G680 is built to last with great construction. The high-performance braided-cable is wear-resistant and will endure the daily use and abuse of gamers. The inline controller built into the cable making it accessible and easy to reach when you need it with built-in controls for volume and microphone, you are in full control. The extra length cable gives ample length so you can have some slack when routing your cable anywhere on your PC.
