Overall Packaging Presentation: Not much to talk about in this section. It arrived at the office wrapped in thick bubble paper. But at least it does give the headset extra padding and it is sure to get to just about everyone in one piece.

First Impressions: Most Shinecon headsets seem to come across as a headset that is cheap looking but gets the job done. This headset not only looks but also feels different than any other Shinecon headset gone before it. The material covered body, the single velcro phone locking system and it’s overall lightweight design, it all feels so well made. I just hope it holds up to the rest of our tests.

Features Review: Sadly this headset doesn’t have a whole lot of features. While it does have a dial for the focus adjustment the independently adjustable pull distance is done by simply moving the lenses left and right. They do lightly click into place, but it’s still not ideal. Other than those two things that is pretty much it when it comes to features.

Final Verdict: When it comes to overall looks this is the best headset Shinecon have made so far. But as we all know, looks are not everything and in any other department, this headset fails to do anything amazing. Sure it works OK, but the adjustable features don’t go far enough and a simple screen touch button would have been nice as well. Yes, it is nice to see Shinecon making more of an effort to make their headsets look nicer, but that won’t help to make them better to use.
