A Closer Look at the XPG Precog »

I’m quite particular about my headsets.  They have to fit right, they have to be comfortable, they have to sound great, and most of all they have to be durable.  I own headsets that fit those criteria.  But that’s not why you’re here.  You’re here to find out how XPG’s eye-catching new Precog gaming headset stacks up against those incumbents.  Is it comfortable?  Does it sound superb?  Is it indestructible?  Is it a winner, or is your money better spent somewhere else?  Let’s find out.

Unboxing

The XPG Precog comes in a hard shell carrying case with a cardboard sleeve around it and a thin plastic film wrapping the whole bundle together.  The carrying case lets you protect your headset while traveling, while also cutting down on the amount of waste packaging that you have to dispose of.

 

The case consists of a hard plastic shell with a stealth black XPG logo adorning the front of the lid.  The lid closes with a zipper that features a large rubber pull tab with a red XPG logo.  The case’s fabric-lined interior that is molded to precisely accommodate the headset and the lid of the case includes five mesh pockets for the headset’s cables and microphone.

 

Inside of the carrying case you will also find a sticker sheet, a quick start guide, and a warranty pamphlet.
