A brand new Kunai for the mobile generation, the Kunai Mobile Stereo Headset presents the perfect blend of strikingly cool style, premium audio quality and unbeatable value for money!  Available in matte black, matte orange, matte blue, and matte red colors, the Kunai features interchangeable, magnetic speaker tags, with each headset includes two extra sets – for a total of six tags – to provide more options for adding personal style.  The TRITTON Kunai Mobile Stereo Headset is compatible with most popular handheld consoles, Windows PC, and Mac, as well as smart phones and smart devices, including most iPhones.  When used with compatible Apple products, the Kunai provides the ability to adjust volume, answer calls, and control music on-the-fly via the convenient in-line audio controller.

If you like playing games on a laptop, cell phone, tablet, or mobile gaming device, but want high quality sound while playing, the TRITTON Kunai Stereo Headset is probably one of the best choices you have.

  • Design – The design for this headset is pretty neat looking. The headset also comes with two extra removable magnetic speaker tags in assorted colors, in my case, black, and blue, and they are easily interchangeable for a simple customization. I think most people will stick with the original color since the plates can look a bit weird. For example completely orange headphones with a baby blue square over the ear. In any case, the option of customization is there and nice to have.

 

  • Comfort – The headset boasts memory foam ear pads. The padded head rail adjusts perfectly to the head size, and it’s also padded to provide a comfortable around-the-neck resting position . You can also rotate the speakers outward if, say, you’re at home and want better sound than your tablet provides but want to be aware of your surroundings.

 

  • Sound Quality – The sound quality on this headset is amazing. If you are audiophile, you will note that these are extremely good for the price. The sound is very crisp and clear. With music you will note how you can hear everything. The little subtle sounds in the back that make that track your favorite will shine through. You get a very nice rich bass, but unlike some other overpriced brands, these do not sacrifice mids for the lows and highs. These are simply great all around on the sound. At no point does the bass overpower and at no point does the sound become garbled. The balance in sound is perfect.

 

  • Build Quality – The headset has a soft silky-smooth texture, but at the same time gives the impression they are hard and durable. Lightweight and practical, but you can tell they won’t break if you drop them or something lands on them. The extra removable magnetic speaker tags are built well, it really is a smart design and they clip on fast and easy but also manage to stay on without any issue at all.
    The only issue I had with the build quality lies in the noise reduction. Not so much on noise canceling from the outside while you listen to your music or games, but more so on keeping it to yourself. The headphones have great sound and manage to fill your ears completely without feeling excessive at all. They deliver the sound so well that you will have the volume high and feel it perfect. The problem is, though, everyone around you will also get a crisp clear listen at what you are listening to. Even when you have them directly over your ears, the sound going out is pretty huge. Anyone within a few feet will hear not just what they can recognize as music, they can probably use Shazam to find out what you are listening to without getting close to you. Personally, I don’t want to be “that person”. You know, the one in walking around in public letting everyone know what they are listening to. For some people it might be a “feature” they like. I personally wasn’t a fan.

 

  • Conclusion – The headset looks great and feels great! The sound quality is amazing despite the issue with outward noise. The best part about them is that they can be used for calls on your iphone or video calls on your iPad and it works great!   9/10
