A premiere in Philips’ gaming portfolio: With the TAGH301BL & TAGH401BL models, the licensee for Philips monitors MMD presents its first gaming headsets, which are supposed to be characterized by high comfort and good sound. Even 3D sound is included in the more expensive model.
The features of the Philips TAGH301BL & TAGH401BL
From a purely external point of view, both Philips gaming headsets hardly differ from each other. They rely on an over-ear design, which is supposed to provide an optimal fit and long wearing comfort thanks to adjustable headband as well as soft pads.
From a technical point of view, both variants also have some parallels: Closed, 40 mm neodymium drivers with 32 ohms impedance are used in each case. The frequency range of 20 to 20,000 Hz also corresponds to what you would expect from a gaming headset.
The cheaper Philips TAGH301BL weighs 211 grams and comes with a 1.8-meter cable, equipped with a multifunction remote control (with mute switch) and connects via 3.5mm jack. In terms of the microphone, however, the manufacturer hardly makes any concrete statements. Only a “crystal clear sound” is promised.

In the case of the 250-gram TAGH401BL, the cable including USB 2.0 port even reaches a length of 2.5 meters. An inline remote control for adjusting the speaker volume and muting the microphone is also built in here.
Compared to its little brother, however, the 401BL offers surround sound by using Dirac HD/3D technology. The inline control makes it easy to select between stereo, 3D and HD for surround sound.
