This headset plugs into the device it is being used with via USB. This offers a much higher power supply that can be offered through a headphone port. It also means that this headset is meant to be used with a PS4 or a PC/Mac, and not a mobile device (without some serious dongles).
To start off, I think the design and build quality of this headset is excellent.
The earpiece shells are made of plastic, but are very solid. In fact, with their metallic amber-brown color they almost appear similar to metal. The shiny jaguar/panther decal on each side is also a nice touch.
The headpiece design is very interesting and unlike any headset I’ve seen before. Rather than having an adjustable top piece, there is a comfortable strip of padding is inside of the headpiece frame that is attached by two retractable bands that actually make the headset automatically fit to any head size that it is placed on.
My favorite aesthetic aspect of the J9 gaming headset are the LEDs on either side that make the headset glow electric blue.
There is also a scroll-wheel volume adjuster on the back of the headset that can be used for precise volume changes.
The microphone attached on the headset is very well designed. It is bendable and can be adjusted to fit easily over any person’s mouth. The sound quality that it offers is great and will offer clear communication or let you record high quality voiceovers.
Next on to sound quality. The bass that the AOSO J9 Gaming Headset can offer is truly impressive. Even at a relatively low volume, you can really feel the power behind the bass and it gives a very enjoyable and immersive experience. I’m guessing the fact that this is plugged in by USB is part of what makes the bass on these so great. As for sound clarity and high treble, this headset is not quite as impressive. It is still definitely acceptable, but just not quite as good as the bass. I was still very happy overall with the sound that this gaming headset provided.

Overall, I think the AOSO J9 Gaming Headset is high-quality and comes at a great price of $35. The headset also includes a microphone that does a very good job. The bass is outstanding and the sound quality is all around impressive.
