Can a low cost headset like the G2100 offer up anything more than a throw away value headset? Today we find out with our review of the EACH G2100 headset from Gearbest.
When it comes to headsets this is the lowest priced headset we hopefully will ever review but do not let the price scare you away this headset is surprisingly good. If your in the mood to roll the dice with shipping from China to save a few dollars or spend a few dollars more and get it from Amazon the G2100 is a easy buy.
• Cool blue lighting effect through multiple LED’s in the cups and mic.
• Soft cushion head-pad and ear-pad, as well as adjustable length hinges which are very comfortable while gaming for long duration’s.
• Flexible microphone for exact positioning, and mic with great sensitivity at picking up voices but not the best in the market.
• One vibration button on a easy to use slider that gives you a on off only feature and not a gain based slider.
• Larger but easy to use in line volume control wheel and Bass booster that runs to dual 3.5mm and USB power.

Score Card and Summary
Instead of boring you with filler we will jump right to the reason you came here.
Clarity of sound: 3 out of 5
For a $21 headset the sound is good but in all reality don’t get too caught up in the price as at low volume you can hear a static buzz. Other then great simulated bass the sound quality is on par with a $50-99 headset which is still not half bad.
Clarity of mic: 3 out of 5
Clarity of sound is better then we expected with the mic, from our video you can hear it is not the best you will hear but is not nearly as bad as you would expect for a $20 headset.
Ergonomics: 4.5 out of 5
The comfort and ergonomics of the G2100 is surprisingly well thought out, highly adjustable and with very well fitting cups the G2100 is an easy a very comfortable headset.
Value added features: 2.5 out of 5
Though there was nothing extra thrown in with this headset in the way of accessories the fact it has cool blue LED’s and a vibration mode that will really submerse you into your gaming or music, you feel you are at least getting some added value.
Construction: 4 out of 5
Even though the cost on the G2100 is super low the construction quality is awesome, you can bend it and trust it wont break.
Warranty and price: 4 out of 5
Warranty says 1 year but being a china based warranty for $21 it’s cheaper to just order another one if you break it. With that $21 price tag the Each G2100 gets our real deal award for value beyond anything else.
Before trying the EACH G2100 if you asked us would we buy a sub $50 headset, we would say stay clear of any headset that is this low in cost. The G2100 made us a believer, you can get great quality for a very low cost.
Due to the price, the construction and the all round good sound quality we have no choice but to give the G2100 our Real Deal Award.
