Sades A60 Review, 7.1 Surround Sound PC Gaming Headset
Hello guys today I wanted to do a Sades A60 Review. They are a wired 7.1 virtual surround sound PC gaming headset with noise canceling. You are likely looking for a great mid range product and want to know if this one is the best for under $50.
Those reasons are exactly why I picked this specific headset out to review because it fits the bill pretty well. My job will be to try and help you decide whether or not picking up a set of these bad boys is a good idea and if they can help you crush it in whatever game you choose.

How do these help gaming performance?
The other day I was talking about the Sades SA 708 which is a lower end version of the Sades A60 and only costs $17.99. I recommend you check out my review if you need a low budget headset. In that review I was talking about how being able to sense direction from sound helps game play immensely.
This is especially true in competitive first person shooter games. The same thing rings true with the A60’s only in upgraded form. 7.1 Surround sound is really nice and you can hear people coming from any direction thus giving you an awesome advantage in game.
Of course surround sound has many advantages and is really nice for all your other games. It just gives you a better feel for what is going on and a much more epic experience. Movies and music are no exception here.
Snazzy Bonus Features
Speaking of immersing your self in a film or video game… this brings me to the vibration feature. Imagine that you can feel whats happening within your experience. Well this is exactly what the team at Sades brought to the table. Your ultra low bass sounds will trigger the headset to vibrate so you can hear and feel effects such as explosions. Pretty cool.
Noise canceling also adds both to immersive experiences within media and gaming performance allowing you to better concentrate on the action. Not to mention to help block out the next door neighbors dog who wont stop barking!
In the microphone department is a retractable mic that works in 360 degrees. It sounds nice and clear so you and your buddies will have no problem communicating.
One more small thing to add in is that this pc gaming headset is USB compatible. Meaning they should work with PC’s and other devices that have USB plugins built in to them.
Are they comfortable?
Sades boasts that they have an “extremely soft” head and ear cushions allowing for hours of consecutive wear. The headband is also adjustable as you would come to expect with gear in this price range.
Are there any issues with this headset?
You can find a lot of good and sometimes sub par consensus out there buzzing about this headset. One of the negatives I found it that this set can be a little heavy. Personally I don’t think this would be a much of an issue unless you are playing over 4 hours at a time. But even when I do that I usually am taking breaks here and there and the headset comes off so not a huge issue here.
The other thing is that there is a cool LED light on both sides of the headset and it flashes on a 1 second or so timer between 3 different colors. The only problem is that you can not make it stay on one set color and you can not turn it off entirely. This could be a pro or con depending on your personal preferences.
Hey I appreciate you sticking with my Sades A60 Review all the way to the end! I am gonna shoot ya strait here and say that for $49.99 you are getting a pretty decent headset here and if you are dead set on buying it then I am not going to stop you. Go for it!
I will say maybe check out this $50 headset as well: Sentey Gaming Headset. They have a lot of the same features as the Sades A60 and are very comparable.
In the end the choice is yours and yours alone! 😀
Will this be your first PC gaming headset or replace another one? If you plan on buying it or already have let me know. I’d love to share in your experience.
