Onikuma K6: The Fit

When reading comments about game headsets, we can see some that complain about the tight or clampy fit. And this is the case when we can say the ONIKUMA K6 doesn’t suffer from this problem. At least, when testing, we did not experience this issue. The fit was snug. It just took us a little fiddling around to find the best size. The cups slide down the band to extend for your custom head size. Actually, it is much like most headphones you are used to.

Unfortunately, the second adjustment option lacks. The headband itself can’t be modified. So you can’t reinforce a specific part of the band’s stiffness, which could redirect what part of your head receives the most pressure.

The pads on the ONIKUMA K6 are nice and firm and alleviate the pressure along your jawline. The side of the cups that make contact with your ears have a nice material to add a pleasant softness. The cups are designed to resist being pulled away from a clamping position. The fit is nice and secure.

The overall comfort of the headset is amazing. The sound is blocked out while wearing them too as the padding allows for a soundproof-like finish. As we said, the earcups adjust up and down to fit any head size.

The colorful LED lights then add super stylish touch, which is ‘needed’ on a gaming headset. As for the ONIKUMA K6, the LED lights on the earcups provide a few colors only that are changing successively. Thus, they don’t change according to the music or game sound.

Onikuma K6: The Mic

The ONIKUMA K6 comes with an omnidirectional microphone, adjustable and super flexible to pick up your voice. The boom arm can be raised up and down to find a custom mic placement to achieve the best sound. The arm has an elasticity and can also be bent slightly towards or away from your face by 170 degrees. If you raise the arm all the way up, the ONIKUMA K6 will mute all sound input from the mic. Say, if you have been using this headset to take a phone call, this allows you to discretely flush a toilet with ease. Kidding.

Onikuma K6: The Connection

The ONIKUMA K6 headphones feature a removable cable. If you’re using a PC, you can use a cable that splits at the end to connect to both your mic and headphone outputs. If you are playing on a PlayStation 4 or connecting to a phone, you could use the other optional cable which is a familiar TRRS 3.5 headphone/mic jack. Xbox One users need a headset adapter. But once you acquire it, the K6 would work just fine with the extra hardware.

Onikuma K6: The Sound

The ONIKUMA K6 packs 50mm drivers that push out some high-end sound quality across all platforms. While it lacks the virtual surround sound, the quality is so high that we often forgot all about it. Sounds still feel like they are coming from 360-degrees around you. So it gives you the illusion of a detailed gaming environment.

Due to the good quality and accurate sound, the explosions, gunshots, and sound effects really flourish with bravado. The headset is compatible with both PS4 and PCs, where it can bring a 4D virtual sound technology, maximizing the accuracy of where sounds come from, which will ultimately help you win matches. There is accurate clarity from the lows to the highs. There’s nothing jarring or harsh about them.

Final Thoughts

The ONIKUMA K6 is a perfect gaming headset that plugs in and just works. It is simple in use but at the same time offers a wide range of versatility thanks to its support across the board of consoles and mobile platforms. For its asking price of $29.99, it goes beyond its features to offer a comfortable fitting with great sound. Probably, the best part about this headset is that it is not trying to be complicated in any degree. You just have to unbox the headphone, choose your wire, and plug it in.
