The knob on the TOP RIGHT: volume up/down.
Disclaimer: I got these for free to test. This review is an independent review. I did not test this on any game YET, but I watched a few movies as well as several movie scenes. And tons of YouTube.
SOUND. These sound great. I have couple of over ear headphones that cost >$150, and I’d say that these are comparable. My initial impression was WOW and LOUD. I could really “feel” the sounds. Watching Avengers Endgame, it felt like I was in the middle of the final battle scene.
CONTROLS. I did not play with the software controls at all. It comes with 3 toggles. These can be found on the cable. First switches on/off the 7.1 virtual surround, the second switches on/off the microphone, and the third turns the volume up/down. The microphone boom can be removed completely; the light on the microphone turns red when muted.
COMFORT. The ear pads are very soft. The memory foam is super comfortable. The cooling gel seems a bit gimmicky, but my ears didn’t sweat even after 1 hour of using these (I usually sweat after extended use of over ear headphones), so they might be on to something.
