NUBWO N2: An Affordable Gaming Headset With Surprising Quality

The market is rife with headphones. You can spend $5 on a pair of USB headphones or thousands of dollars on the best studio reference cans with tons of options in between. There are different categories of headphones: USB, studio reference, gaming, general use, wireless RF, Bluetooth, sport, and a million subcategories within each general category because consumers can be super picky. Well, if you’re looking for a cheap but solid pair of gaming headphones for a younger relative or maybe you just need a pair of headphones with a decent microphone and a long cable, the NUBWO N2 is an excellent value and this is the hands on review. It has:

– a sturdy construction

– good quality audio

– a very reasonable price

Sturdy Construction

I’ll be honest, the low price of the N2 did a lot to curtail my expectations. Upon arrival, I was met with a surprising revelation: for $18, these headphones are really well put together. While the earcups are made of plastic, it’s a very sturdy soft-touch material lending itself to a refreshingly premium feel. Additionally, the headband, with its light padding and leather topping, plus the ear cushions and their similar leather cover feel shockingly nice for the price. And did I mention the actual metal in the top frame as well as the braided audio cable? Clearly, the N2 was built with quality in mind.

Audio Quality

I’m no audiophile. In fact, my hearing is actually quite terrible so my review of any audio device should be taken with a grain of salt. And for comparison’s sake, the headphones I use for reference are a pair of A-Audio Legacy headphones I’ve had for a few years with a retail price around $300 barring sales. That being said, the N2’s are perfectly reasonable for the price. Decent range for the most part with a bit of a drop off when it comes to bass, standard fare for lower priced headphones.

Something that keeps the N2’s sounding better than they should is the open back design. This means the back of the earcups will bleed sound which makes it a less private experience to listen to audio in public while widening the soundstage for better directional audio. In gaming, directional audio cues become easier to locate while also improving immersion. Such benefits are also apparent in movie and music listening. It really takes your experience to the next level.

Also in the vein of audio quality, the microphone is good for the price as well. It’s not something I would use to replace a standalone condenser mic but it works well for in-game chat. The foam windscreen does a good job reducing severe pops and general sound is pretty good.

Reasonable Price

For $18 with free shipping, the N2’s are a solid buy. Performance to cost and build quality to cost ratios are excellent on all fronts. All in all, the N2’s are great for those who want a good audio experience but don’t want to spend too much.

What We ❤️️

The N2’s are built well and deliver a better than expected audio for what I would consider a steal of a price.

Future Designs/Desires

I’d like to see the audio cable be removable from the earcups for better portability. The cable is long and durable but I find it a little annoying to transport without a carrying case.
