JBL Quantum 800 Wireless 5.0 Noise Cancelling Gaming Headset with Microphone and RGB, PC and PS Wirelessly compatible only, in Black
About this deal
When powered up, the iconic JBL logos that adorn each of the ear cups illuminate into a burst of light while a halo of colour chases around in a circle across the fascias. While the lighting isn’t quite as much as the Quantum One’s you must remember that here you have a wireless headset therefore you do not want to sacrifice all of that battery power! Connection
Also, the human brain uses small head movements to distinguish if sound sources are behind or in front of us. The brain processes the differences between when a sound arrives at the left vs. the right ear to determine where the sound is located. So with JBL QuantumSPHERE 360, you can move your head naturally to pinpoint the exact source of sounds around you. Oh and the mic does not work with Bluetooth. I read people using it on Bluetooth and tbat being their main use, but apparently mine doesn't. Could be a dud. The first thing you’ll notice is that sound no longer feels like it’s “inside your head.” Suddenly it seems like the game audio is coming from high-quality loudspeakers—or the virtual game world—all around you.I bought 3 headset. The Steelseries Arctis 7+, the Turtle beach stealth 700, and this JBL quantum 800. I've had the first two for about 2 weeks and i wanted a good headset with the same features as the Turtle beach 700. Specifically simultaneously Bluetooth and wireless USB connection use. If the Turtle Beaches weren't so notoriously flimsy with deceptive solidity i would have kept those. So ultimately it is between this 800 and arctis 7+ and i am basically set on keeping these after a few days.
Typically, you need to spend a hefty chunk of money to get headphones with good ANC, and the feature is rarely found on gaming headsets at all. The Quantum 800’s ANC is surprisingly strong, cutting out a decent amount of surrounding noise without producing a low-level hiss or significantly changing the sound of what you’re listening to (problems often found in cheap ANC). The steady bass drum in Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” sounds full and weighty, without any distortion even at maximum (and unsafe) volume levels. It doesn’t quite rattle the head with subwoofer levels of bass, but it’s still a powerful thump. The guitar strings and vocals both come through clearly in the mix, even with the prominent bass.The earpads are padded with a generous amount of memory foam, wrapped in soft faux leather. The underside of the headband has lighter padding but similarly supple faux leather. The result is a soft, snug over-ear fit that should be comfortable for long gaming sessions, with strong noise isolation that enhances the headset’s active noise cancellation. Still overall love the design but a bit wonky with the microphone especially after it bends over time and loses its original JBL kindly sent me down a pair of their Quantum 800 gaming headsets recently. After the niggle I had with the cable on the Quantum One, I was looking forward to this wireless headset very much. JBL Quantum 800 – Wireless Freedom!
Simultaneous input/output on 2 devices (work laptop on Bluetooth + personal laptop with USB wireless dongle or Phone on Bluetooth + PS4 with the wireless dongle)JBL Quantum Headphones Upgrade tool redefines your headphones experience. Through your macOS device, you can now conveniently upgrade the headset. The accompanying software has also been a huge issue. It quite often doesn't even recognize when my headset is on and connected to my computer, and can't remember my spatial sound settings so often I've given up on trying to keep the 7.1 surround sound on. When it worked right, it was the best headset I've ever owned. But the downsides are are too great for me to ignore anymore...
