Philips Headset TAGH301 

Image of author
This is a lightweight over ear headset, which can work in a range of situations however it is sold as a Gaming headset. As with so many recent products the unit has to be saleable in many countries and because of this the documentation is minimal and most of it is images. So what do the Philips Gaming Headphones 3000 series have to offer?

The word featherweight appears on the front of the box while 213grams is not that light it is quite light for a corded set of headphones that include a microphone arm.

There is 20cm from the tip of the earpiece to the inside of the padded headband; this figure includes 2.5cm of expansion on either side. 16.5cm has the earpieces parallel. Each earpiece can turn through 90 degrees. The earpieces can also move by around 15 degrees forward so should fit almost any head. Each padded earpiece is 9.5x7cm.

The microphone emerges from the bottom front corner of the left earpiece and the hardwired connection lead emerges from the base of this earpiece it is 2metres long, 30cm from the earpiece is the control box and 20cm from the end is an extender/splitter for those items that require microphone and speaker to be separate.

The control box is 4x2x1cm and has a microphone mute button on one side and volume control on the other side.

The drivers are 40mm and have a closed back; the drivers can support sound levels up to 102dB. The frequency response is between 20-20,000Hz.

Unlike some headphones/headsets that allow heat to build up the soft padding tends to take heat away so even wearing for long periods should not allow your ears to feel hot. Being follicly challenged as I am the padding on the inside of the headband also prevents the head getting too hot.

Sound output was crisp and clear and no one asked me to repeat anything through the microphone so I assume I was clear through both headphones and speakers.

In any game sounds however small are important and with this headset being over ear you are not distracted by noises locally and are able to give full concentration to what is happening in your environment. 

This headset can also work for the numerous numbers of online uses whether it is Zoom or other such communication methods or even getting through to someone’s technical support department.

At the time of publication the Philips PC Gaming Headset TAGH301 are available from Amazon for £53.86 as well as from other retailers.

Full details can be found on the Philips web site.
