Cooler Master has recently released two new gaming headsets. They're called the MH751 and MH752 and have one major point of differentiation: while the MH751 is analogue and relies on your integrated sound card to produce and record sound, the MH752 comes with its own sound card and offers USB connectivity. The latter is a great feature to have if your built-in sound card is of poor quality and causes issues with the microphone quality of any headset you connect it to. However, in this review, we'll focus on the analogue MH751 gaming headset, which will be more interesting to gamers with a decent integrated sound card on their PC or anyone using a console (Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch) as the MH751 sports both types of the 3.5-mm audio jack: the 4-pole TRRS used for consoles and mobile devices and the dual 3-pole TRS to connect the MH751 to a sound card with a separate audio output and microphone input.
The Cooler Master MH751 is an aesthetically unassuming no-frills gaming headset, which comes as a breath of fresh air in the gaming headset market crowded with models with wild designs, RGB lighting systems, and similar shenanigans. According to the manufacturer, the goal was to offer a headset that has good audio and microphone performance and is comfortable to wear for extended periods of time—nothing more, nothing less. That's everything most of us are after anyway, and if we can get it for $80, which is the price of the Cooler Master MH751, this headset is well worth your attention.
Even though there's no official confirmation, it appears to me as though this headset came to life by rebranding and adding a detachable microphone to the Takstar Pro 82 headphones, which are known as good and inexpensive studio monitors. Nothing wrong with that approach at all—the Takstar Pro 82 headphones have already proven themselves as detailed and superbly comfortable and are actually selling for more than what Cooler Master is asking for them with the microphone.
