In the topic of gaming peripherals, the brands that most gamers will have in mind are usually Razer, Logitech G, SteelSeries, and many other giants in the industry. But have you ever heard of GAMDIAS? GAMDIAS is a brand based in Taiwan that recently gained recognition for it’s peripherals and the have a huge gaming product line that consists of mice, keyboards, audio equipments and other accessories.
We recently got our hands on their HEBE M1 RGB Headset, ZEUS P1 RGB Optical Gaming Mouse and HERMES P1 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. So are these products as good as they claim it to be? Let's find out!
Gamdias HEBE M1 RGB Headset
“The HEBE M1 RGB comes packed with features and latest tech. True RGB engineered to provide stunning illumination lighting and vibration effects. It also comes equipped with the latest 7.1 premium virtual surround sound technology to offer the most immersive 3D sound experience to ensure you hear all sounds with pinpoint accuracy for that all-important competitive edge.”
Pros: The design of the headset itself looks slick, the lighting makes the headset futuristic while keeping it simple. The sound received while playing games like Overwatch is crystal clear as I can hear enemy’s footsteps when they are moving nearby. The microphone also transfers crystal clear voice comm to my colleague while testing it out during a game of Overwatch. The Environment feature in the Gamdias HERA software is so much fun to play around with. There are numerous kinds of environment for you to choose from like Room, Auditorium, Forest, City, even Sewer Pipe, and all of it sounds realistic.
Cons: The bottom portion of the ear cups does not fully cover up my ears and I still can hear people talking while I’m gaming, and I felt a slight pain on the sides of my skull after wearing it for a long period of time. The vibration and bass impact function is rather pointless in my opinion. The vibration became a distraction and it made me feel uncomfortable turning it on. The microphone is not fully retractable as the tip of the microphone is still poking out from the headset after it has been fully retracted. The smart remote controller is a bit oversized and looks rather flimsy.
Gamdias ZEUS P1 RGB Optical Gaming Mouse
“16.8 million Double level RGB customizable streaming lighting design makes ZEUS P1 the most unique gaming mice! The ZEUS P1 features a 12,000 DPI optical sensor that provides pixel-precise tracking and advance surface calibration support.
It comes with eight strategically placed buttons which provides an advantage by customizing your button configuration and playing your way through HERA software.
Zeus P1 also offers consistently accurate tracking, 1,000 Hz refresh rate, eight configurable buttons, and super-responsive switches. Double level RGB customizable streaming lighting creates a beautiful, personalized look that matches your style.”
Pros: The ergonomic design of ZEUS P1 is perfect as it can fit my large hand can perfectly. The side mouse buttons (Button 4 and 5) are placed in a perfect area where my thumb reach it effortlessly. The adjustable DPI buttons allows ease of change of DPI depending on your personal liking or on what games you are playing.
Cons: The side mouse buttons (mouse button 4 and 5) are sticking out a tad bit too much and sometimes I will accidentally press on it and it returns me to my previous visited webpage if I’m browsing the internet. Plus the DPI can only be increased and decreased by 200, which sometimes can be rather inconvenient.
Gamdias HERMES P1 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
“The HERMES P1 - the flawless aluminum faceplate with cut-edge designed mechanical keyboard. 16.8 milion color and customizable lighting effects by gamers - Brilliant RGB LED backlighting immerses you in the game with virtually unlimited adjustability.
You can go from zero to awesome in less than five minutes. The Hermes P1 has everything you need to make it yours.”
Pros: Keys can be easily pulled off for ease of cleaning. The tactile feel of the keyboard is on point with extremely clicky sounds (might not be a pro for people who prefers quiet keys). The weight of the keyboard is sufficient to keep it in place even when games are getting more tense and exciting.
Cons: The quick-attach wrist rest comes off effortlessly and it doesn’t provide me comfort, but instead became a nuisance. The keyboard feet does not elevate to keyboard to a steeper angle of my liking, don’t feel like it is elevated at all.
