Performance and Verdict
We tested the Connectland CM-370 in gaming, music and voice chatting. Generally the sound was crisp and the quality the headset offered was way above average for their price. There was no distortion at all, although we would prefer a little deeper bass and maybe a higher volume limit. Voice chatting was also a nice experience. During gaming, while the sound was not something special, it offered a good feeling of the action, especially in FPS games. The headset felt lightweight at our head and we could use it for a long time without getting tired. Costing around 10 euros in Europe, they are a good deal and totally worth the money.
(+) Good sound quality for price
(+) Detachable mic
Thus, we give the Connectland CM-370 a rating of 8.0/10 and our Value For Money Award.
