Disclosure: The MH630 is loaned by Cooler Master for review purpose.
The story behind the MH630…
CoolerMaster has a pretty extensive line up of gaming headphones like the MH751 that was reviewed earlier. Like that headset, the Cooler Master MH630 headset is also a Takstar OEM which is a good thing considering Takstar makes good headsets.
The Cooler Master MH630 is a headphone without a DAC. Consequently, it doesn’t have any fancy RGB lighting and effects. If you love to have RGB bling on a headset, this isn’t for you. But the MH630 has everything else you could ask for- a detachable cable, built-in volume control and a detachable microphone. Since the Cooler Master MH630 has a 3.5mm jack it works great on almost anything you can connect it to. Moreover, there is also a splitter to enable you to connect it to a source that has a separate mic input.

The MH630 has quite a decent package. The headphone comes in a standard dark grey box with a splash of purple like almost every other Cooler Master headset box these days. You get just the headset without any wires and you can then attach the cable to connect the headphones as well as the detachable mic. The headphone cable is of pretty decent build quality. The cable is braided and sturdy enough to discourage tangling not to mention the best part that it is user-replaceable.
The mic is detachable. The volume control is built on the headset which I found to be a better position than being a part of the wire which can cause connection issues.
The headphone cups are medium in size. They just about cover your ears and the clamping force is minimal which makes for comfortable listening but noise suppression isn’t great. I can, for instance, hear my wife complain about the amount of time I game very clearly!!
The cups can be swivelled 45 degrees for easy carrying but you can’t flip the cups 180 degrees around like a DJ.
