Here’s my own Philips SHG7980 review, the best PC gaming headset with detachable mic (for me). All I really wanted for is a headset with microphone that I can use for my daily Skype conference call.

One thing I know about PHILIPS is that they are known for offering the best in multimedia – audio/visual. So, I finally decided to purchase this PC gaming headset because I really need it and I was thinking that I can also use this headset whenever I wanted to play with my favorite PC games. Philips SHG7980 is a little bit pricey – probably it is because it is the best PC gaming headset. I just hope it’s worth every pennies. While I am into it, I guess it will be only right if I can share with my readers my own verdict with PHILIPS SHG7980 PC gaming headset with detachable microphone.
Unboxing Philips SHG7980 PC Gaming Headset
The first thing I noticed about Philips SHG7980 headset is the over-ear design with soft leatherette cushions. Another cool component that I noticed is that detachable microphone and those switches for the PC gaming headset’s volume and mute switch.
When I removed the PHILIPS SHG7980 PC gaming headset from the box, I was pretty much amazed on the real deal. The headset does not have the regular audio jacks that we usually see on other regular headsets. Philips SHG7980 is using a USB connector with Digital Sound filter. The speaker has a 40-mm in diameter with a frequency response ranging from 20-20,000 Hz. Truly it delivers explosive bass when I did tried it. I enjoyed the digital sound and felt the action on the movies I was watching. The switches enables me to manage the volume while using this PHILIPS PC gaming headset. What’s more is that I can detach the microphone and set it aside when not in use. I can attach the flexible microphone which have a frequency response ranging from 100 – 4,000 Hz anytime I need to go into a call. And I can also use the mic when I am on an network type games – online/offline games.
