Axgon AXGH1V1 Review: Powerful yet affordable gaming headset

An affordable gaming headset packed with premium features.

Published

on

You don’t need to buy the most expensive option to enjoy immersive audio while gaming. The most affordable gaming headsets can match more expensive accessories’ exhilarating audio and crystal-clear microphone functionality. Contrary to the majority of the top gaming headsets overall, these models could provide you more money to expand your game library or make new PC improvements.

When shopping on a tight budget, it’s possible to worry that you’ll purchase a cheaply produced piece of junk from the clearance section. But don’t worry, the Axgon AXGH1V1 gaming headset, which costs only 1,690 PHP, has some pretty impressive specs, like specially tuned 50mm drivers, 7.1 virtual surround sound, and RGB running lights. Let’s see whether this is the best option for you.

Unboxing time!

The Axgon AXGH1V1 has decent packaging and exudes a gaming aura the moment your eyes touch it. Only the headset and an integrated controller for simple control are included inside.

For your pleasure, here is our unboxing video:

Design and Build

The Axgon AXGH1V1 chose a traditional style with a hint of uniqueness to give it a relatively upscale appearance. Like with the Monster Airmars N1, I was surprised to find the RGB running lighting included here as opposed to just an LED light on the microphone.

To seal the ear canals and provide passive noise isolation, the Axgon AXGH1V1 incorporates superior PU (polyurethane) leather earpads. This headset has great comfort because of the soft memory foam padding, which is something I like. There was something in a low-cost gaming headset that I wasn’t expecting.

A metal suspended headband and other ultra-light materials were employed by Axgon to create a comfortable gaming experience over an extended period of time.

Performance and Audio

The world of gaming peripherals may not be familiar with Axgon. However, it is marketed under the AOC name, a reputable veteran in the monitor industry. AOC has a 50-year history and is recognized as one of the most reliable monitor brands on the market in Europe and Asia. Therefore, you can be sure that the company’s gaming headset will provide a top-notch audio experience when it is released.

The Axgon AXGH1V1 has a frequency range that is perfect for your ears, ranging from 20Hz to 20kHz.

It obviously lacks many of the appealing features that the majority of gaming headsets provide. This headset is wired and only supports analog signals, which means there is no wifi connectivity or even an app to adjust settings. However, none of that matters to the type of gamer who prefers the custom-tuned 50mm magnetic neodymium driver and 7.1 virtual surround sound, which creates more powerful sound waves and an immersive audio experience. It is amazing that Axgon was able to put more of an emphasis on audio quality than those extra functions.

The microphone has active noise cancellation, which can be silenced using a physical slider on the side for convenience, although it cannot be disconnected. In our tests, the noise reduction was effective and could even muffle keyboard activity.

Should you buy the Axgon AXGH1V1?

The Axgon AXGH1V1 is a solid gaming headset that provides good performance at a reasonable cost. It’s a snug and comfortable outfit for long-time gaming sessions, thanks to the memory foam cushioning and flexible headband.

The mix between the music, sound effects, and dialogue in video games is generally good. The mic also produces a full, crisp sound. Each ear cup offers ample space and breathability for ears to rest comfortably, as well as a good fit to minimize slips, which is a major selling point. Although we thought the detailing on rifle rounds and footsteps was superb, not all the sound effects were crisp. The best part is that it just costs PHP 1,690.

Pricing and Availability

The AXGON AX1CVA Gaming Chair is available at the AOC Flagship Store in Lazada and Shopee for only PHP 1,690 and partner retail stores nationwide.

Razer announces the high-performance Deathstalker V2

The celebrated Razer DeathStalker keyboard line returns with a complete revamp!

Published

on

By

Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the return of the acclaimed DeathStalker keyboard in the form of the new DeathStalker V2 Pro, DeathStalker V2 Pro Tenkeyless, and DeathStalker V2.

With a clean, low-profile design language running across the range, the new DeathStalker V2 line is ideal for gamers looking for a clutter-free desktop set-up. Boasting a sleek, low-profile design, the DeathStalker V2 line is all about high-profile performance, featuring both linear and clicky variants of the Razer™ Low-profile Optical Switches across the range. Adding to the premium experience is a slim-line aluminum top plate for superb durability and laser-etched keycaps with an ultra-durable coating for even greater longevity.

“The original DeathStalker became a fan favorite due to its innovative chiclet-style design and next-level typing feel within a sleek low-profile form factor,” said Chris Mitchell, Head of the PC Gaming Division at Razer. “With the new DeathStalker V2 range, we’ve kept the low-profile aesthetic of the original keyboard, but included our latest technology innovations, such as Razer Optical Switches and Razer HyperSpeed Wireless, to give gamers a fast, feature-packed gaming keyboard experience.”

All-New Razer Low-Profile Optical Switches

Featured in every member of the DeathStalker V2 line, the new Razer Low-Profile Optical Switches bring lightspeed switch actuation to low-profile keyboards, using an infra-red beam of light to register keypresses. This means there’s zero debounce delay on each key press, giving a faster, more responsive keyboard for gaming and a cleaner, crisper feel for typing.

The Low-Profile Optical Switches are available in two variants, Linear and Clicky. The Linear Low-Profile Optical Switch has an actuation point of just 1.2mm with 2.8mm of total travel and an actuation force of just 45 grams. The Clicky variant actuation point is 1.5mm, with tactile feedback at the same point, and a full journey of 2.8mm from 50 grams of actuation force.

With fewer physical contact points, reducing overall wear and tear, the Razer Low-Profile Optical Switches have been tested to an industry-leading 70 million presses, out-performing competitor switches by as much as 40%.

Both switch types are perfect for the low-profile ergonomics of the DeathStalker V2 range, with their slim design allowing the keys to sit lower on the keyboard baseplate for a more natural hand and wrist position. As a result, gamers will experience minimal wrist fatigue even with long hours of usage, without a wrist rest.

Topping off the Low-Profile Optical Switches are laser-etched keycaps with an ultra-durable coating for the ultimate resistance to fading or scratching. The ultra-durable coating makes the keycaps outlast even the likes of Doubleshot PBT. Durability is further enhanced with a 5052 aluminum alloy top plate.

Performance Meets Versatility

The DeathStalker V2 Pro and DeathStalker V2 Pro Tenkeyless both feature Razer HyperSpeed Wireless, Razer’s proprietary high-speed wireless technology, one of the fastest and most reliable wireless gaming technologies currently. Using a combination of optimized data protocols, an ultra-fast radio frequency, and Adaptive Frequency Technology (which scans available frequencies to use channels clear from interference), Razer HyperSpeed Wireless delivers a fast, stable and reliable wireless connection, on par with traditional wired connections. Featuring multi-device pairing, gamers can connect DeathStalker V2 Pro and a compatible Razer mouse to just one HyperSpeed Wireless dongle for greater freedom and convenience while still keeping latency to a minimum.

In addition to this, the DeathStalker V2 Pro and DeathStalker V2 Pro Tenkeyless also feature Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, giving users the flexibility to connect to up to 3 devices at once, without the need for re-pairing between devices, switching between devices with the press of a single button.

With a battery life of 40 hours of continuous usage for the DeathStalker V2 Pro, and 50 hours for the DeathStalker V2 Pro Tenkeyless, both are supplied with a detachable Type C cable for charging or use while charging, so even the longest gaming marathons don’t have to be paused due to lack of power.

A DeathStalker For Everyone

The DeathStalker V2 range offers a keyboard for every user. The DeathStalker V2 Pro brings a fully featured wireless keyboard to users wanting a cable-free set-up. For those looking for a clutter-free, minimalist set-up or with limited desktop space, the DeathStalker V2 Pro Tenkeyless delivers the same wireless functionality, speed, and responsiveness as the full-sized DeathStalker V2 Pro. Even on the tenkeyless version, the media button and roller are retained for convenience. The DeathStalker V2 gives users the same functionality and speed as the DeathStalker V2 Pro but eschews wireless connectivity in favor of a detachable Type C cable connection.

In addition, all Razer DeathStalker V2 keyboards are fully compatible with Razer Synapse 3 for up to 16.8 million colors customization through Razer Chroma RGB and come with hybrid onboard memory for storing user settings when using the keyboard away from home.

Razer Viper V2 Pro, ultra-lightweight gaming mouse now official

It comes with improved Optical Mouse Switches Gen-3 and a new Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor.

Published

on

Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, announces the Razer Viper V2 Pro, an ultra-lightweight wireless competitive gaming mouse packed to the brim with their exclusive cutting-edge technologies and designed hand-in-hand with esports pros’ feedback. More than 20% lighter than the Viper Ultimate, the Viper V2 Pro sets the new standard for the competition with next-generation switches, better battery life, and the all-new Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor, resulting in a pure-performance mouse that has already been achieved legendary esports status.

Razer Viper V2 Pro

Faster. Lighter. Deadlier.

“We carefully considered each gram of the Viper V2 Pro to ensure that, in exchange for a lower weight, it wasn’t at the cost of other features,” said Chris Mitchell, Head of Razer’s PC Gaming Division. “We are not content with simply cutting down on weight here. Both esports professionals and the greater mouse community played a significant role in the development of the Viper V2 Pro, addressing their comments, whether they are about the switch and sensor improvements or something as simple as optimizing the protrusion of the side buttons.”

Razer Viper V2 Pro

“I think this mouse was built for me,” said Jimmy “Marvel” Nguyen, a professional VALORANT player for OpTic Gaming. “The shape and weight are perfect in my hand and it feels like a natural extension of my body. It’s unlike anything else.”

While using a prototype of the new Viper iteration, Marvel has recently set the record of most kills during the 2022 VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) with 35 kills, as well as being voted MVP of the Grand Finals. OpTic Gaming took the #1 spot of the tournament, making the next generation of the Viper a part of VALORANT history even before the product’s debut.

Razer Viper V2 Pro

Peak Performance at your Fingertips

Razer’s new Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor is also being revealed as part of the Viper V2 Pro and achieves a complete resolution accuracy of 99.8%. This powerful new sensor is equipped with AI functionality such as Smart Tracking, Motion Sync and Asymmetric Cut-off for the ultimate performance at the highest levels of play. The Asymmetric Cut-off feature has been enhanced to support up to 26 granular levels of height adjustment compared to 3 in the previous version. This wider array of customization enables users to set a lift-off and landing distance that is tuned to their playstyle.

With a more tactile feel and an even longer click lifespan, the Viper V2 Pro features the new Razer Optical Mouse Switches Gen-3 for absolutely zero double-clicking issues and no debounce delay. These new switches are rated for a click lifecycle of up to 90 million clicks, increasing the value proposition by over 25% from the previous generation switch’s lifespan.

For The Pro

“The Viper V2 Pro was built from the ground up with the best players in the world, with the goal to provide them with a revolution able to improve their performance,” said Flo Gutierrez, Director of Global Esports at Razer. “We’ve been gathering critical feedback from our players throughout the development of the mouse and time and time again we heard that weight, sensors, and switches far and away were most important. We doubled down on all three of those and the result really speaks for itself: try it and you’ll never let it go.”

Every aspect of a gaming mouse matters to the esports pro, down to the customization given to the user. The Viper V2 Pro is now rechargeable via USB-C and features a DPI control button on the bottom of the mouse, allowing for flexible sensitivity on the fly without having to dive into software. Additional grip tapes pre-cut to the Viper V2 Pro’s shape, a Razer Speedflex charging cable, and a 2.4GHz HyperSpeed USB dongle extender come in the box with the Viper V2 Pro, ensuring any gamer is set up for success no matter how they wish to game.

The lightweight wireless gaming mouse that achieves hard-hitting performance is now available in both black and white colors.
