For prolonged gaming sessions, the Cerberus V2 serves you well because of the padded headband design and ear cushions. The clamping force on the headset is enough to ensure that the headset doesn’t fall off with sudden jerks while not imposing too much pressure over your head. The steel frame on one of the headbands keeps the entire headset sturdy. Both the elastic and steel headband form a dual-headband design which offers a comfortable experience of wearing the Cerberus V2. The cushioning on the ear cups are enough to isolate background noise to an extent while being soft on your ears. The detachable boom mic is flexible and rigid enough to maintain whatever position you bend it.
Coming to the headset’s performance, the audio works out well for gaming but not too much for listening to certain genre of music. The lows offer a strong bass and reverb for gunshots and explosions, but when it comes to music, the bass feels overpowered. Of course, this is a subjective aspect. Although you might enjoy a couple of dance and EDM songs with this headset, you won’t enjoy songs with acoustic instruments and vocals. When it comes to voice chat, you will be able to hear your teammates well only when we cranked up the volume to achieve that. The microphone performs really well for voice chat through Discord, but we wouldn’t recommend it for streaming or voice-overs.
The Cerberus V2 is priced at Rs. 5,700 aiming for entry-level gamers. You don’t get any fancy features like RGB lighting or removable ear cups. What you get is a comfortable headset with a modular microphone that will take care of your single and multiplayer gaming sessions. Including support for different devices is a great feature which depends on your usage. If you’re looking for a gaming headset just to use on your PC or laptop or console, and wouldn’t mind the lack of a detachable mic or the dual-headband design, we would recommend the more affordable HyperX Stinger at Rs. 4,599.
