Speedlink Medusa NX

The headset itself looks great in it’s matt black colouring and grilled earpieces.

There’s a Speedlink embossed logo on non mic’d headphone, and a Medusa NX bit of text beneath that. Running around the central belogo’d plastic, is a honeycomb grill which I assume is to allow air to circulate around the internal speakers. It could also just be for aesthetics.

Each earphone has a thick strip of foam padding running around the rim.

The headstrap is made with the soft foam with that wrinkly material found on most headsets of this type.

The microphone is attached to a bendable strip of material about 6 inches long. It should be able to reach the mouth of even the biggest of heads.

The volume control is very similar to the original Medusa’s, with volume controls for Front, Rear, Central and VIB (Bass). There’s also an on and off switch, and a bright red LED.

The cables to connect the headset to your PC are quite numerous. The ones and their colours are: red-mic, yellow-centre/sub, black-rear, green-line-in and a USB connector to power the whole contraption.

    I might be missing something here but is this a review of a headset that fails to mention anything about the quality of the microphone?

      The microphone’s quality is excellent. I use this headset myself.

    Think before you buy. Headset is fragile: mine (USB version, bought 4 months ago) broke down just under the joint above the ear cup. Producer didn’t honor warranty :( bad, bad, bad.

    A friend of mine, who bought the same headset as me, has some software problems with them all the time.

    It would be a great product if it was not so unreliable.

  • Absolute perfect sound quality and bass effect. But it’s fragile as mentioned above so be careful with them.
