The headset is lightweight, comfortable, and sounds good. I was looking for an upgrade to my old wireless headset to have digital 7.1 surround sound, but as soon as I installed the SWARM software, everything good about this headset no longer mattered.
I have repeated troubles keeping the headset connected to the PC. Transmitter seems to freeze in one state or another, and no sound goes to the headset. Headset light shows that it's trying to pair, but it won't until I unplug and replug the transmitter. Odd thing is, slider on the headset still controls volume on the computer.
I've owned and used the headset for a day, and I've had to do this 9 times already. I have to plug this into the back of my desktop, so trying to wiggle the tiny transmitter out just to get sound working again is a no go for me. Rebooting the computer works as well, just not when you're in the middle of things.
Simply walking far enough to hit its range the headset disconnects. Sometimes it reconnects just fine, but other times it requires a complete reset of both the headset and transmitter. Letting the headset sit without sound turns it off as well, which is fine, if it didn't constantly cause this issue on turning it back on.
Furthermore, the software controls your active microphone, not the headset's.
This means every time you turn the headset on, every time you leave and return into range, if you do not have the microphone plugged into the side of the headset, it will MUTE your microphone.
Pressing the mute button on the side of the microphone doesn't unmute it either, until you plug in the microphone. I have a decent desktop microphone with much higher quality than what this thing puts out, so I shouldn't have to have the detachable mic plugged in all the time to prevent it from messing with mine.
Speaking of walking out of range, the range of this seems to be over half that of my previous wireless headset. I like listening to people in discord while I'm getting drinks or other things, and this headset does not allow for that.
TL;DR: Good hardware, bad software.
