Speedlink Medusa NX

Medusa NX


Speedlink are well known for making some top notch headsets, with their previous range of Medusas making real waves in the review community. Now though it’s time for a refresh, a re-release if you will. The Medusa is back, this time termed the NX and while it’s still got a really long cable and 5.1 surround sound, can it stand up to the previous generation’s top notch performance?


  • Real 5.1 gaming surround sound
  • Real all-rounder – can be used on all sound sources
  • Brilliant voice transmission
  • Highest level of comfort
  • Adjust sound channels individually
  • Collapsible headset including carry case
  • 3.8m cable

Speedlink’s Take on the Medusa NX

Find yourself right at the centre of the action with this 5.1 surround headset: hear a door closing behind you to your left or listen to the footsteps of your opponent who’s in front of you. Plug the Medusa into the 5.1 soundcard on your PC or, using the phono adapter and mains adapter, into your DVD player.

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

    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.

  3. The headset is perfect i have one of those my self and thay are great. Nothing to comply.

  4. The headset Medusa NX 5.1 usb is Breekbaar
    De mijne ging reeds na 2 weken stuk / gebroken

  5. The mick stops working from time to time.

  6. 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?

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