Final Thoughts and Conclusion
Overall, I was very impressed with the quality of the audio produced by the Viper V380, as well as how comfortable the headset is to wear. Even after several hours wearing the Viper V380 while editing images, I never really felt like I had to remove the headset because it felt uncomfortable. The sound was great. I never ran into any distortion, even at high volume. The sound was clean and clear in games, movies, music, and even in voice chat on Discord. I was rather impressed with the mic quality on the Viper V380. Full disclosure, I haven’t reviewed too many gaming headsets over the last couple of years. So I don’t know how far other headsets have come in terms of mic quality. All I can say is the Viper V380 has a pretty good mic.
I try to not look at the prices of products I review until after the review. This is to not develop any presuppositions before I begin testing. Then, throughout the testing, I try to guess a price range I feel this product fits into. For the Viper V380, I assumed the price would land between $70 and $90 USD. For once, I was correct. At the time of this review, you can get the Viper V380 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset on Newegg for $74.99 or Adorama for $89.99. I could not find a price on Amazon as it was not available on Amazon when writing this review. I feel that $74.99 is a good price for a great gaming headset in the Viper V380.
