Patriot Viper V360 Headset Review: A Promising Start

A Closer Look at the Patriot Viper V360 »

v360thumbPatriot is known for its memory and mobile products, and has just recently started selling peripherals. It might seem like an unusual jump, but their new headset proves that Patriot is prepared to expand and succeed in this new market.

Patriot’s initial headset offering is the Viper V360, a virtual 7.1 capable gaming peripheral that plugs in via USB. The V360 headset is equipped with a pair of 40mm Neodymium magnet drivers with 20mm sub drivers to deliver a fuller, immersive sound when gaming. It also sports a capable fold-in microphone.

The packaging is a standard windowed box with a clear internal product supports.  The back lists all the relevant statistics of the Viper V360. This is an initial product sample and a more accurate specification table provided by Patriot is available on the specification table at the bottom of this page. There’s no tape holding the box closed, so it was easy to get into the box without having to cut or tear anything open.

Here’s everything inside the box. The drawstring bag has a Viper logo, and is closely tailored to the size of the headset. The envelope contains two Viper stickers (red ink on transparent background) , a quick-start guide, and some promotional material.
