AOC GH300 Review: “Safe and iterative, but great sounding for the price”

AOC is a brand that’s more synonymous with the best gaming monitor market than the gaming headset market. But, with the release of the AOC GH300, this Netherlands-based company is looking to take a crack at the cheap-end of the best gaming headsets market. Priced at £49 (US price pending at time of writing) with RGB lighting plus 7.1 surround sound, the AOC GH300 certainly look good on paper. However, how will they hold up in a market that’s absolutely flooded with choices from more established brands in that budget, around-$50 category.

Build-wise, the AOC GH300 features a solid central red anodized steel band that joins the rather generously accoutred soft faux-leather cups. The housing for the cups themselves is plastic, although there’s a really nice steel mesh covering over the center which houses an illuminated LED AOC logo with RGB lighting. A little bit of extra flair is afforded by the embossed AOC logo on the headband, which also features a red-braided trim – both nice little additions.
