The JBL Quantum 810 wireless gaming headset from LA-based manufacturer JBL is the newest offering from their premium wireless gaming headset series. Crafted with influencers in mind, the Quantum 810 provides gamers a canvas for personal style and audio customization as well as RGB lighting that allows for even further expression both on and off screen.

This headset exudes modern good looks with its premium materials and leather-wrapped memory foam ear pads designed for comfort during extended gaming sessions. The ergonomic angle of its ear cups fits more naturally over your ears, rather than pressing straight down on them, and its lightweight yet durable headband ensures long gaming sessions without experiencing any pain or discomfort.

In terms of sound quality, the JBL Quantum 810 boasts Hi-Res certified JBL Quantum Sound as well as JBL Quantum SurroundTM available via PC utilizing JBL QuantumENGINE driver software. Furthermore, active noise cancellation technology helps block out distractions and boasts 43 hours of battery life which charges as you play!

As gamers know, one feature that will appeal to them is being able to switch between two audio sources for optimal listening experiences. This feature is especially welcome during late night gaming sessions when listening to music while conversing with teammates at once. Furthermore, this headset includes a unidirectional voice-focus boom mic equipped with flip-up mute functionality and echo cancellation technology for optimal voice capture and voice chatting experiences.

While the JBL Quantum 810 delivers on many of its main selling points, there are a few decisions that make recommending this headset more difficult than it might otherwise be. Most significantly is its limited connectivity options with non-PC devices compared to Xbox series X|S and PS4/5 headsets which include wireless/Bluetooth connectivity options and spatial/surround sound support - unlike these options it doesn't support spatial/surround sound on consoles like Xbox series X|S and PS4/5 models.

Overall, the JBL Quantum 810 headset is an outstanding solution for PC gamers seeking to add top-of-the-line audio setup. With excellent sound quality and impressive RGB lighting capabilities, its appealing aesthetic and personalized feel make an attractive statement about their audio setup. However, I believe the decision to push a dedicated app for all things related to the headset and inability to remove its boom microphone completely are two areas that should be improved before I would recommend the headset for anyone else. The JBL Quantum 810 headset is now available, starting from $299.99 USD. For more information about it and where you can buy it, visit JBL's official website; Amazon and Apple App Store are where it can be purchased as well as Google Play for mobile applications from JBL. Furthermore, this product comes with a 3-year limited warranty; for more information visit their respective websites; additionally JBL provides many accessories - including an optional carrying case - to choose from when choosing their Quantum headsets.
