Genesis Radon 720 Headset Review

Genesis Radon 720 Headset Review

Working from home for the past year has been, if nothing else, an interesting experience. What was clear from the start however was that like many people my own setup was not up to the challenge. Now spending easily six hours a day on video calls I was in need of a headset that would be comfortable for prolonged hours of use while also offering clear audio. So, when I was introduced to the Radon 720 headset from Genesis and its glowing red earphones I was curious to see how it would go.

Right from the unboxing it was clear that the build quality of the Radon 720 headset is nothing short of superb and it is clear that no expense was spared in ensuring durability and comfort. Each material feels as though it can take a beating while still being lightweight enough not to cause discomfort. This is even more beneficial when you consider how you adjust the headset. Unlike others which include sliders on the earpads to conform to the shape and size of your head, the Radon 720 simply requires you to pull down on them as you place it on your head. This means you end up with a tighter, more secure fit, with the headset returning to a small form factor when you take it off. It does take a bit of getting used to but once you do it’s a pleasant wearing experience.

Speaking of comfort, as someone who has to wear glasses pretty much all the time I often find that most headsets push down on them, causing discomfort and even headaches. Thankfully the Radon 720 doesn’t do this and sits with just the right amount of pressure to avoid any problems while remaining in place. As a matter of fact, the earpads are made from such a soft material and include a fair bit of padding that I actually found myself forgetting at times I was even wearing the headset. Not to mention they isolate background noise too it is no surprise that you can just feel like you are in your own little world at times.

The key selling point of the Radon 720 headset is that it features a built-in sound card capable of delivering 7.1 virtual surround sound. This not only means you experience professional quality sound but you are also able to identify the source and direction of sounds in supported games. To further enhance this, the headset also features 50mm transducers that result in an audio experience unlike any other. Be it for gaming, listening to music, or for those many work Zoom calls, the audio quality is top notch and crystal clear. As a matter of fact, the Radon 720 headset is the first 7.1 virtual surround sound headset I’ve used and I don’t think I could use anything else now.

Something that did surprise me about the Radon 720 was the built in microphone, both in quality and formfactor. When I first unboxed the headset I didn't even notice the microphone and just assumed it did not come with one. It was only when I double checked the packaging that I realised that the small, and I mean small, bump on the left earphone is, in fact, said microphone. Even with such a small size however, the quality of the built-in microphone is truly impressive. Be it for gaming, work meetings, casual chats, or even recording a podcast, the Radon 720’s built-in microphone has been perfect for each of these use cases.

To round everything off, the headset also comes with a 200cm long braided cable with a USB connector. This matches up with the build quality of the headset as a whole and is a nice addition that completes the package. Being able to take advantage of this length and the overall comfort of the headset, it means you can use it with consoles and feel at ease. As a matter of fact the Radon 720 is my go-to headset for gaming be it on desktop or console.

All in all, the Radon 720 headset is simply brilliant and an ideal choice regardless of your needs be it for work or gaming. With a lightweight but durable build the headset is able to take a beating while also being comfortable to wear for prolonged hours, even for those with glasses. Having never used a 7.1 virtual surround sound headset before, I don’t think I can go back to anything else. If you need a new headset then make sure to consider the Radon 720.
