Hardcore Gamerlife’s HCG1 is the best gaming headset value…And its not even close

Sailun Tires

Now before we make it sound so cavalier, let me tell you why we think that this HCG1 Professional Gaming Headset is your best value option out there.

  1. Any headset you want to purchase should have terrific sound. In order to produce the very best sound ranges you need to have 53mm diameter drivers (speakers) at a minimum. This gives you the optimal sound ranges. Any headset without drivers of this size are missing some very important sound frequencies. Basically you lose quality of sound. HCG1 driver size? I’m glad you asked…. 53mm.

  2. Gaming headsets need to have a full 3D sound experience that allows you to tell where your enemies are, or what is happening in your environment. The HCG1 handles this brilliantly. Music sounds fantastic (because of that driver size we talked about above) and we even have customers who use them to do online teaching.

  3. The next thing on my list to talk about is the microphone. The HCG1 has a detachable microphone and the audio quality is professional grade, which is critical. As a nice little side bonus, being able to remove the microphone while you are eating, or not chatting with anyone, it is great to be able to remove the microphone from your periphery and then simply plug it back into the 3.5mm jack when you are done, as simple as that!

  4. This next aspect of the value for the HCG1 is often overlooked, but it’s importance can’t be understated. The HCG1 really stands out in its level of comfort. You can wear it for hours at a time without feeling claustrophobic. The universal fit, high quality padding, plus the steel frame really makes sure that everyone can wear these and still feel comfortable(even people who wear glasses!). I know that comfort isn’t exactly sexy, but any hardcore gamer knows that when you get into the groove, you can stay there for hours. Or maybe you have to attend Zoom meetings all day? Either way, you want something that doesn’t make you want to pull your hair out.

  5. With my final comparison point with other headsets I want to address the elephant in the room. Product warranties. I have never understood why the very biggest brand names often fail to stand behind their products. You can see it in their warranties. They give you 6 months? Maybe a year for some expensive brands. The HCG1 comes with a 2 SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. Think about that for a moment. If you aren’t satisfied, you get your money back or a replacement provided at no additional cost. Doesn’t that sound like a company that is confident in their product?

So let me just sum it all up for you. You might be able to find a headset with great directional sound, and you might find a headset with a professional microphone quality. You might find it with the highest level of comfort, although finding that kind of quality is hard even when you are willing to spend more than $200. However I can assure you that NOBODY else will offer you a 2 year satisfaction guarantee on your headset, and that is why any other headset you look at can’t hold a candle to the kind of value that the HCG1 delivers to you, not even all those brands that you have heard of before. But don’t take my word for it. Try it out, and if you don’t love it, then take advantage of the satisfaction guarantee. After all that is what it is there for!

Still not convinced? No problem, here are some of the things our customers have said about the HCG1’s:

Corgi 5.0 out of 5 stars  A gaming headset that’s built to last

… Where this headset really shines is the superb audio quality. They sound like $200+ Sennheisers. I play PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds daily and these have really improved my game compared to my old headset. I can much more clearly hear quiet sounds like footsteps, and that makes a huge difference in being able to calculate the position of an opposing player. They get plenty loud, especially if you’ve got them plugged into a device with a high quality amp….

Craig Butikofer 5.0 out of 5 stars  Honestly surprised.



+Build quality; this thing is almost all metal. I have 518s (Senneheiser) and they don’t feel as well built as these. I was pretty shocked. They have that bar that goes across the top and it’s all metal and they’re really comfortable. You can wear these things for hours and hardly notice. They’re a good deal heavier than 518s (more metal and the microphone component)

+Driver size: these are 35mms, and actual good ones. Outside of music and audio stuff I play a lot of PUBG and these have a super wide sound stage, I can actually hear footsteps and silenced fire that I was missing or misplacing before, it’s been actually really nice….

sarah  brahosky  5.0 out of 5 stars  I have hated headphones for years

...I have tested these headphones for several things. The first thing I did was throw on some music. Few things will test your headset’s abilities like some thumping music. They perform beautifully. The massive sound drivers built in to the headset provide you with a clear, crisp, and beautiful sound.

Second, I have been playing a number of different games while having them on. The first one was Diablo 3. There are sounds going on in the game that I didn’t even know existed till I plugged this headset in! I also fired up Fallout 4 so that I could test the headset’s capabilities as far as a 3D sound environment. I was blown away. The Fallout franchise is well known for their stunning music, and I never realized just how incredible it is within the game itself. I was able to pinpoint the movement of enemies to either side of my character. Amazing sound!

Next I wanted to touch on comfort. As I stated before, every headset I have ever owned has been an uncomfortable experience from beginning to end. That has not been the case with HCGamerLife’s product. I stayed up late the other night and wore the headset for 3 hours. Not an ounce of discomfort. The headset is build to adjust to your head without any work on your part. They fit my 4 year old’s head and my giant head, and I don’t have to adjust anything! The padding and lightweight design is fantastic for a great deal of prolonged use.

Finally, I wanted to touch on the incredibly sturdy design. The entire frame is metal. No plastic parts to wear out in a short time and snap when you put them on three months later. The metal flexes, which lends itself well the the fit and comfort I mentioned earlier. I have young children who get into EVERYTHING.

I can’t see them breaking this headset unless it ends up in the toilet or something, but they are old enough to know not to mess with them(Hopefully!)!
