Acer Predator Galea 500 Review


It’s been quite a while since we last featured some gaming peripherals from Acer’s Predator lineup. We only saw a glimpse of the new products several years ago, & back then most items came at a premium price. Now, however, it seems the Predator subbrand has become a bit more budget-friendly, & we were lucky enough to lớn try out several items from the current products. We’ll be starting off with the Galea 311, a fairly traditional gaming headset that looks quite classy. While the headset didn’t have that many special functions, we did quite enjoy our gaming sessions with the Galea 311.

The Galea 311’s design is very classy. You’ll get treated to lớn a đen matte headset, with only the Predator logo sản phẩm on each side, and the Predator brand name on the top of the headband. The overall bulky thiết kế is supported by a steel frame that becomes visible when you adjust the headband. As a whole, the headset doesn’t have that many intricate thiết kế features. We did love the somewhat retro (yet futuristic) microphone design. There is also a very modestly designed control box incorporated in the cable.


Even though the headset has ample padding in its headband, as well as its ear cups, the Galea 311’s grip is quite tight. If you prefer a somewhat looser headset, you’ll have to lớn wear this one for quite some time before things ‘loosen up’. Nonetheless, those who prefer khổng lồ properly feel the headset they have on và don’t mind a tighter grip will certainly enjoy the experience with this one. We loved the fact that the headset doesn’t shift its position when we move around a bit. In many cases such as this, it’s a matter of personal preference. We enjoyed the experience, but simply had to lớn adjust a bit lớn the tight grip. This is also probably due lớn the metal frame supporting the headband.

The adjustable microphone can just be rotated at a certain angle, but in most cases, you’ll just pull it all the way down. When doing the latter, you’ll make sure the microphone isn’t in your peripheral vision và it just feels natural this way. The microphone satisfyingly clicks into place for each of its available positions, & it’s easier than just guestimating what setting you usually prefer. Not having defined positions is still common for many microphones that can be adjusted by a rotating ‘arm’.

This device does not require any additional software, và it has the base functions you need. The device has a small control box incorporated in the braided cable that allows you to adjust the volume settings và also (un)mute your microphone. Other than that, this device has no extra features concerning audio profiles or bass settings. That being said, in most cases we vị prefer a simple thiết lập and not too many bells và whistles.

The sound quality is superb. While the bass isn’t always as deep as we want it to lớn be when playing certain games or when listening khổng lồ music, it does suffice for a lot of competitive games. The sound is crisp & crystal clear, & our fellow gamers on the receiving end also received crisp audio feedback when we spoke. The microphone works properly, và this is actually in most cases all you need to enjoy a good gaming session.
