The Sumvision Nemesis Akuma 7.1 surround sound gaming headset is a low cost USB gaming headset with microphone and inline controls for a very reasonable price.
A nice design feature is that the microphone can be quickly and easily detached if you want to use these as just headphones without the mic.
Setup of the Nemesis Akuma took very little time, plug the headset in and install the software and you’re up and running. The included software is easy to use and allows you to adjust settings for both the headphones and the microphone.
There are a range of headphone settings to tweak, the most useful being the equaliser. It comes with a selection of predefined settings for different music (e.g. rock, classical etc) or you can save custom settings that fit your audio tastes.
One of the settings activates virtual 7.1 surround sound. This wasn’t as effective as you might hope, currently playing through PC version of Tomb Raider (which has it’s fair share of bullets whizzing around) and there wasn’t any feeling of being surrounded by sound.
While the 7.1 element hasn’t overly impressed the actual sound quality of the Nemesis Akuma is really good, with a great bass that makes music and explosions sound brilliant, but it doesn’t overwhelm vocals during cut scenes.
The microphone also has some settings, including settings that can change the sound of your voice or add an echo, which could be useful if you want to use these for voiceovers. As you can hear in the review video the voice quality through the microphone is very good, although the lack of pop filter means you’ll occasionally get some unwanted pops and distortion when you are speaking.
For the low price you’re getting a decent set of headphones and a decent microphone for your PC.
