Conclusion

The AVF Gaming Freak GH-U11 is a remarkably high performance gaming headset that is specifically designed to suit your gaming lifestyle. We first stress the headset for 1 week to mature the driver before the testing is done. At first impression, the sound produce is really great! Clarity and vocal can be clearly heard but if the music has too many instruments at the same time, the instrumental sound is quite interfered with each other. When test for the bass, we disable the FX Vibration effect and the bass can be felt but not that strong and punchy. But after we enable the FX Vibrator, the headset shakes our head easily! AVF truly did a great job this time for the new innovation of vibration effect on the headset. The vibration effect follows the music/game bass effect to stimulate realistic experiences with deep bass sound. AVF also improves the wearing comfort without oppressive feeling with the upgraded head rest design compared to their previous headset model. The ear cup is made out of PU Leather and design like over-the-ear size. Even after long usage the headset does not give much pressure to the ear. The cons we notice is that the headset does not come with 3.5’’ audio jack so there is no way to connect to smartphone without extra accessories. The illuminated led also sometimes stop working unless you shake it and we thought maybe it’s integrated with the vibration sensor. The vibration effect sometimes hurts the ear when the bass is too strong and sudden punch. With the price tag of RM169, we agreed this is one of the recommended gaming headset within the range of RM100-RM200.

Finally, I would like to say thank you to AVF Malaysia for giving me a chance to play and review the AVF Gaming Freak U11 Gaming headset.
