About the Gamdias Hebe M1 Headset…
Gamdias is a pretty new kid on the block here in India. This is the first time I am hearing them starting with the Hebe M1 RGB USB headset. They are located in Taiwan and make a variety of gaming gear from gaming mice to mechanical keyboards and even gaming headsets like these. The Gamdias Hebe M1 USB headset has the now rather common RGB lighting system which may people want to match their keyboards and mice which also have RGB lighting.
In addition, the Hebe M1 is a USB powered headset and it bypasses your sound card. That is a good thing if you use multiple systems as the sound quality will be same regardless of the system you choose to use. The bad thing is that if you use a good quality sound card you can’t pair these headphones with that sound card. In addition, you can’t use these headphones with something that lacks USB like a phone or portable media player. Personally, I find USB headphones to be just great. Just plug-and-play anywhere with no issues.

As I mentioned earlier this headphone has a built-in USB which is neat if you use multiple systems as you get consistent sound quality regardless of what PC you use this on. The Hebe M1 has large 50mm drivers and a built-in volume control which is very useful. In addition to the volume, the control pod can mute the microphone, turn on or off the built-in vibration control and turn on/off the RGB lighting.
Now the Hebe M1 has a rather gimmicky vibration setting which I never use personally but some people might enjoy it. The vibration is pretty decent only with some games. The combination of the large driver and built-in vibration unit means the Hebe M1 is a rather heavy headphone. I get fatigued after some time when using the headset. The Hebe M1 also has a retractable microphone which works decently.
