Zebronics is trying to fit in their Orion gaming headset somewhere around the lower and mid-range. Comfort is clearly the top priority here considering the suspended headband design, usually seen on higher-end headphones which are now making their way to the lower segment. The outer frame is made of metal using two pipes with the headband between them. The headband has some cushioning under it which could have been better. It’s flexible enough to accommodate big head sizes. The earcups are made of plastic with a glossy and metallic finish. Overall, the headset has a mediocre build quality and the cushioning will ensure you can wear the Orion for long gaming sessions.
Audio performance is average on the headset. The soundstage is narrow and the sound signature is close to neutral but not as good as the HyperX Revolver S. We weren’t really impressed with the bass response as it lacks the punchy and heavy feel. This makes the sounds of explosions, gunshots and vehicles a little underwhelming in games. There’s one area where the Orion shines and that’s mi-
crophone performance. Vocals sound natural without any audible enhancements. Zebronics could have made it much better by including some noise cancellation and a pop filter.
Considering all the shortcomings and interesting aspects, at this price we would recommend the ASUS Cerberus V2 over the Orion. Not only do you get a similar performing microphone but better audio reproduction in the drivers and modularity.
