Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Features include a sound-cancelling mic and ear cups, built-in volume and mute controls, and a well-cushioned headband. Available in black and arctic camo.
The RIG 400HS is extremely comfortable. With breathable fabric over-the-ear cups and a plush headband, you could wear the peripheral for hours on end and suffer no ill effects.
Generally comfortable
Although detail was good, we were impressed most of all with how spacious the sound was, which really benefits a game like PUBG where spacial awareness is at its most important.
The headset's sculpted, extremes-free sound works very well for gaming. I played Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare on the PlayStation 4, and the audio gets just enough force where it counts.
The removable noise-cancelling mic works great on PS4, and despite its short length, my party was always able to hear me clearly.
On the other hand, the microphone is a thing of beauty. Both detachable and bendable, the mic on the RIG 400HS is extremely easy to connect, disconnect and mold to fit your preferences.

What reviewers didn't like

Only available as a wired headset.
I handed off the headset to a co-worker, who tried the device and remarked that it felt light and comfortable. He also agreed with my assessment that the limited options for adjusting the ear cups meant that he couldn't get a perfect fit.
Mic frequently picks up audio from headphones
Our single biggest issue with the headset is that the amount of sound leakage is such that the microphone frequently picks up the output of the headphones.
Each earcup can click securely into one of three slots on either side of the headband, but that's the most you get for adjustments.
There was only one large problem I encountered using the RIG 400 HS and that has to due with mic compatibility.
The one issue we did have was the lack of an easier way to adjust the headband.
