First Look

Only the headset itself is included in the retail package. The headset is plug-and-play so there are no drivers necessary. There is no user manual included in the package or on Ozone's website but really there is no need for one.

Starting at the bottom of the headset, we find a single audio cable that connects to the bottom of the right ear cup as well as a retractable microphone that extends from the left ear cup. The cable is listed at greater than 3 meters in length. You shouldn't run into problems with the cable being too short as we have found with other headsets. The cable terminates into a USB connector so unfortunately you won't be able to use these with any device that utilizes a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.

The microphone is flexible and tends to stay put wherever you position it. It is easy to slide in and out of the ear cup - no issues here either.

Both ear cups are labeled with proper orientation letters so you don't put the headset on backwards. The ear cups are a bit limited in how much adjustment can be made. Most headphones allow you to rotate and tilt the cups for the best possible fit but the Oxid only allows you to raise or lower the height of the cups on each side. The top head band is solid plastic with a large perforated cushion beneath it.

More just ahead.
