ONIKUMA K8 Gaming Headset Review

The ONIKUMA K8 is a universally compatible set of gaming headphones with clear sound and minimal distortion.

You can use this headset for your PS4, new Xbox One, PC, laptop, Nintendo switch, PSP, tablet, mobile phone, but you’ll need a Microsoft Adapter (Not Included) to connect with the older version Xbox One.

Colourful breathing LED lights, a fantastic adjustable microphone, an extra-long cable is just some of the great features of this headset.

But what do they sound like? How comfortable are they? Time to test them out!

The ONIKUMA K8 comes neatly packaged in a Black cardboard box. There’re product images and written specifications on the box.  The box measures 21.0cm x 17.5cm x 10.0cm and weighs 485G.

Using the ONIKUMA K8.

You can use the ONIKUMA K8 on just about any gaming console, and even on your mobile phone.  To use LED breathing lights, you’ll need to power the headset up with the USB cable.  You can use the headset without this USB input and can use the 3.5mm input.  ONIKUMA have also supplied an adapter splitter, where you can use 3.5mm headphone and 3.5mm microphone jack.

The main cable is long with a length 220.cm and feels very good quality with a nice braided effect.

I managed to use the ONIKUMA K8 on my Windows 10 Laptop and on my iPhone 7 without any issues whatsoever.  The microphone was clear, the sound was crisp, and I was also able to take hands free calls too!

The sound quality is fantastic, you can even use these as a great set of audio headphones, I also love the LED breathing lights.  You get a colourful light display of Purple, Yellow, Green, Red, Pink, White, and Blue.
