Everything looks great on paper, but what’s inside the box?
A lot of things included in this bundle, so let’s break it down a bit and go over each piece.
To start things off, they include this little red envelope with the Viper logo on it. Let’s see what’s inside.
Oohhh some goodies.
In the envelope, they include 2 Viper stickers to put where ever you’d like.
The also include a Quick Start Guide
Seriously not joking when they said Quick Start Guide and usually, for a pair of headphones you would be right in thinking not to read these but there’s a bit of an issue. A very important mention is not listed here, but I will get into that a little later in the review.
As an alternative to the leather/leatherette ear cups already installed onto the Patriot Viper V370 RGB 7.1 Surround Gaming, Patriot includes a second set. This set is a cloth mesh set, my preferred pair that let your ears and the side of your head breathe a little and avoid the sweat form making them stick to your ears. That is my preference though, you may prefer the pair already installed.
Then they include this interesting little gadget. This is designed to make changing the ear cups easier. Later we will see how that works.
A nicer bonus they include is this travel bag with draw strings. A welcomed little addition to store your headphones or take them on the go.
Then we have this interesting set of headphones, the main attraction. On the next page, we will go into detail on this pair of headphones.
