Cooler Master MH752 Gaming Headset
A comfortable headset with above average sound. We tried it out on Fortnite and the 7.1 surround sound works like a charm. If you’re looking for a headset at around the $100 mark this one should be on your list.
Hey everyone! It’s Austin here with another Cooler Master review. This time I’ll be checking out the MH752 Headset, one of the latest offerings in the new Cooler Master product lineup. It’s a gaming headset that boasts extreme comfort, clear audio, and multi-platform compatibility. Simply plug it in with one of the included auxiliary or USB cables and jump into the game. Are you ready to play with the pros? Let’s check it out!
What’s in the Box?
- MH752 Headset
- Detachable omni-directional microphone
- Cables for auxiliary or USB connectivity
- Instruction manual
- Suede carrying case
The box has the same purple and black color scheme that’s found on all of Cooler Master’s latest gear. It’s a simple design with bold colors, stylish typography, and minimal graphics. I love it!
I grab my box cutter and slit the tape. Then I gently open the box and slide the interior insert out. At the top of the insert is an instruction manual and underneath is the MH752 Headset. It’s beautiful!
The sleek black design with silver accents makes quite the statement. It’s simple yet stylish, packing just enough detail without being too baren or overly complicated.
The top headband and ear pads feature meticulously stitched plush leatherette that looks comfy as a cloud. Both sides are made of a hard plastic, likely ABS, with the Cooler Master logo printed in silver tone. The headband adjusts with a zipping sound, gliding smoothly to help you find the perfect fit. There is also an R and L on the right and left sides to help you get in the zone fast.
Overall, it’s a stunning piece of hardware that has luxury written all over it. But- how does it stand up to further review?
Overview of the MH752 Headset
I unpackage the rest of the box and find a removable mic, all the necessary cables, and a soft bag for storage. Assembling the headset is a little tricky, as the grooves must line up just right to put it together. I consult the convenient instruction manual and have the whole piece ready to go in just a couple minutes.
I plug it into my computer USB jack and slip the headset over my ears.
I immediately notice two things. First, the plush leatherette padding feels like heaven on my ears! It’s hard to describe in words, but it’s incredibly soft and comfortable. Combined with the lightweight construction, I soon forget that I even have them on. Until I open up Pandora.
Sweet melodies fill my ears. The audio is crystal clear with the perfect level of base and unbelievable sound. After jamming out to a few of my favorites, I launch open Netflix to see how the surround sound feature works.
The surround sound feature is found on the in-line control unit, alongside a mic toggle and volume buttons. Simply click the 7.1 button and listen as the audio reaches new heights! It’s like I’m in a movie theatre with booming voices, perfect sound effects, and enchanting tunes.
I’m ready to try the MH752 in-game.
I launch open Fortnite and get to work. On the title screen I’m met with the same dazzling audio effects as the music takes on new meaning. I dive into Battle Royale and quickly find a shotgun. Pump. Down goes the first enemy. A sniper rifle pops from a chest and I move along. Crack! Another hit.
I hear footsteps in the lower right corner of the house. The MH752 lets me triangulate the enemy’s position for a sneak attack. Down he goes as the player count drops to 3. Then 2. I rush to make it to the new zone and spot my enemy on the opposite side of the map. My bolt action is there with me as the curtain drops and trumpets sound.
In the Trenches with the MH752 Headset
I’ve been playing with the MH752 Headset for awhile now and have got a feel for its ins and outs. To give you a better idea of how it performs, I’m breaking the ratings down into five main categories. Let’s have a look.
This has got to be the most comfortable headset on the market. The plush leatherette is second to none while the adjustable headband conforms perfectly to my head. And that’s not to mention the lightweight construction.
I’ve used the MH752 for hours with no fatigue and often forget it’s even on my head. I’ve never given a perfect rating for any feature before, but the MH752 deserves a solid 10. Exceptional craftsmanship!
Whether you’re using a standard headphone jack, or the USB for 7.1 virtual surround sound, you’re in for a treat. Music is enthralling. Cinematic scenes are comparable to a home theatre. And game audio is crystal clear for a major competitive advantage. The MH752’s 40mm Neodymium drivers are truly second to none.
However, I discovered that the surround sound feature only works on PCs & Mac. That means its auxiliary only for consoles, and I docked a couple points for this reason. Still, sound quality is exceptional all-around and this is only a minor setback.
As for the omni-directional mic? Flawless voice quality, as expected.
I personally love the look of the MH752. The sleek black design screams classy while the small pops of silver add the perfect touch of flare. Plus, the simple Cooler Master logos on the sides add a subtle graphic that doubles as additional eye-candy.
The cables are made from thick braided cord and the in-line control unit is a durable plastic with an intuitive design that keeps the headset’s primary functions at your fingertips. If you’re a fan of minimalist hardware and design, the MH752 is the headset for you!
Software & Extras (6/10)
In terms of software, Cooler Master offers the Portal Download on the MH752 product page. Portal is a program that delivers additional features and customizations for a lot of Cooler Master gear, including the MH752 Headset. I downloaded the program and tried it out to see what it was all about.
Portal gives you the ability to adjust several features of the MH752, including sound effects, frequency levels, and volume controls. It also allows you to choose sound profiles and switch on and off from surround sound via the software. It’s a nifty program that could be great in some situations, but it doesn’t wow me from a gaming standpoint.
Coming in at a cool $100, the MH752 Headset is priced remarkably well. The Neodymium drivers are of exceptional quality and the 7.1 surround sound is a huge boon, making it easy to hear enemy footsteps and subtle in-game sound effects. Plus, it plugs into aux or USB ports for unrivalled flexibility and multi-platform play.
The in-line control is another perk, as it gives you easy access to the headset’s functions. As for comfort? That may be where the MH752 knocks out the competition. The soft leatherette padding combined with durable steel and plastic deliver the perfect balance of practicality. Fantastic value and incredible performance.
