The headset comes complete with surround sound, a flexible noise-isolating microphone, and an adjustable headband, in addition to an included cable that Amazon shoppers say is much longer than what they've received with other sets. "This is a great headset for those who want something a little more substantial than the regular starter gamer sets, but don't want to drop big money for a top of the line," wrote one reviewer. "I tested it out while playing 'Spider-Man' on the PS4, and it sounded fantastic." Other reviewers agree, adding that the Bengoo headset is an ideal option for children who want a more immersive gaming experience. "My 11-year-old son loves these headphones," another reviewer wrote. "He says they cancel out noise and his microphone works great. Very comfortable to wear. The fact that they light up is just awesomeness."
