Closer Look / Control Module

The ear cups also swivel and rotate, allowing for the best fit possible. The inside of the ear cups are covered in soft leather but as you can see above, these are on-ear headphones, not over-the-ear. This means that the ear cup sits directly on your ear which could cause discomfort over time. I have personally yet to find a pair of on-ear headphones that are comfortable, but maybe these will change that?

The microphone on the Strato is flexible and stays in position which is sometimes hard to find on a gaming-grade set of headphones. The actual microphone is smooth rubber like the rest of the system and does not have a foam boom mic cover.

The Strato headphones are designed for easy portability and as you can see, they can be folded up for easier transport by folding one of the cups inward.

The inline control module features the same smooth rubber look and feel as the headphones. Here we have volume wheels to control the front, rear, center and subwoofer independently. There is also a switch for the microphone and a volume adjuster which uses a push-tab instead of the standard rolling wheel. The center of the control module has a thin vertical red LED that flashes while the headphones are in use.

That pretty much covers the Strato hardware. Let's continue ahead and take a look at installation and software.
