A considerable portion of the Level 10 M gaming headset is constructed from aluminum making it heavy for a headset. A cloth-covered pad on the top of the headband, leather-covered earpads, and moderate clamping force make this headset comfortable to wear. The full-sized leather earpads also isolate noise.
The earcups are oval in shape which gives less room to adjust the headphones over one’s ears compared to circular cups. On the other hand, this design maintains a sleeker profile when viewed from the side.
The exposed wire is for looks, much like what was seen on the Level 10 M mouse.
The headband is adjustable along a ratchet and has a tension locking mechanism when the headband is stretched like when placed on the head.
The microphone can rotate about two axes. Here it is being folded onto the headset.
Near the joint on both earcups is a miniUSB jack for the included cables. This permits users to detach the headset from the PC and reattach the headset to a mobile device. In addition users have the liberty to have the cable attached to either the right or left cup.
The inline controller has a microphone mute switch and volume control. It isn’t heavy and it’s smaller than a matchbox, but being 1 foot along the cable may create situations where the controller will dangle.
The back of the controller has a mirror finish that easily picks up fingerprints.
