Last year, Cooler Master released two excellent gaming headsets, the $80 analogue MH751 (reviewed here) and its USB variant, the $100 MH752 (reviewed here). Both were and still are great choices in their respective price brackets. That, however, didn't stop Cooler Master from coming up with a brand-new gaming headset lineup for 2020, this time consisting of three products: the analogue MH630 ($59/€59), USB-powered MH650 ($79/€79), and wireless MH670 ($109/€109). This review will focus on the Cooler Master MH630, the simplest and least expensive headset of the bunch. You can read the review of the MH650 here, and the MH670 is reviewed here.
All three new headsets share a lot of features: they're based on the same design, offer the same detachable microphone, and have nearly identical controls. In theory, choosing between them comes down to your personal preference, and the size of your budget, of course. If you have a decent sound card and aren't interested in going wireless, you should be looking at the MH630. In case your sound card is underpowered and has problems with microphone input, or any other issues of that sort, the USB-powered MH650 is the obvious choice. Finally, if going wireless is what you're after, the MH670 is what you'll naturally be interested in. In this review we'll examine the characteristics and performance of the analogue MH630. It's priced at $59/€59, which is a competitive price for a no-frills brand-name gaming headset. Read on to find out what Cooler Master did to try to stand out from the crowd.
