An Extra 20 Degrees Of Surround?
The Patriot Viper V380 RGB headset has an understated grey and black colour scheme, but don’t worry about it, once you turn the RGBs on no one will notice. Physically the headset resembles the HyperX Cloud II, with squared off earcups instead of rounded ones and uses something called protein leather for the headband. The controls on the Viper V380 RGB are found mostly on the left side and included a microphone mute button, RGB LED control and a a volume wheel.
The headset sports 53mm neodymium drivers with a response range of 20Hz to 20kHz and a 64Ohm impedance at 1kHz. The microphone ranges from 100Hz to 10kHz with an SNR of 60dBA and software options to enhance voice quality and reduce background noise. That software also includes an equalizer, not to mention the ability to enable the virtual surround if you so desire.
This is the flagship headset in Patriot's Viper gaming peripheral portfolio. Patriot is a well-known name in the memory market. Last decade, the company followed a lot of other firms by launching a dedicated line of gaming products. Patriot aims to offer feature-rich gaming peripherals at price points that won't break the bank.
