With tons of options for gaming headsets nowadays, it’s tempting to take an all-in-one approach. A good one may have all you need to communicate during games or have occasional calls without worrying about sound feedback from your pc or laptop. But if you want to level up your game, or maybe just share your golden voice with the world (ahem), let’s admit–, those tiny boom mics won’t sound as good as a dedicated desktop mic.
With this, Cougar’s Screamer X prides itself on its comprehensive capabilities for either solo use or with a group.
So to test this beast, I casually used it for 3 weeks for gaming comms, solo/ group calls, and recording.
Let’s cut down the chase and see what’s inside the box.
MY FAVOURITE PART: UNBOXING!
Upon receiving the Screamer X, my first words were, “Wow, it’s big.” Yes, it comes in a bulky box with the following items:
- Screamer-X Microphone
- RGB Stand with USB Hub and Cougar’s Logo
- Detachable Pop-filter with Cougar’s Logo
- 3/8″ To 5/8″ Threaded Screw Adapter
- 3 M L-shape Type-C to USB-A Cable for Microphone
- 1.2 M Type-C to USB-A Cable for RGB Stand
- 2 Velcro cable ties
- User Manual
Before opening it, I shook the box to check if there were some loose items inside, and there were none. Everything inside is neatly and tightly secured with customized foam that holds the mic and RGB stand in their respective places, while all the smaller items are tucked underneath.
Upon seeing the Screamer X in the box, I must admit that I spent some time appreciating its aesthetics in matte black. It’s undoubtedly IG-worthy!
Now that we’re done with the unboxing, let’s go straight to checking the items that build Screamer X and its features.
