Page 4 - Conclusion
Once again, it would not be a surprise if you were to see these headphones and think they were a different model, whether made by Cooler Master or Takstar, but the Cooler Master MH751 still is a compelling headset just like its sibling, the MH752. From the outset, we still have the same classy looking gaming headphones. Its clean looks are combined with a solid structure and build. The steel band keeps the headset together while the plastic does not creak unexpectedly. With cushioned earcups, a padded headband, and a light weight, the Cooler Master MH751 is easy to wear. I personally found it to get warm after long use, but the clamping force is just adequate enough to stick on your head without causing annoyance. When we get to audio performance, the Cooler Master MH751 is pretty good in its own regard. While it does not come with a USB sound card, the sound characteristics are practically the same, which is not too surprising considering they are the same physical headphones. With good amount of detail, a fun V-shaped sound, and good performance in all three frequency ranges, the MH751 was more than adequate for daily gaming use. For non-gaming applications, I found the soundstaging to be a bit narrower than I would have liked and I personally think the midrange could be made richer in detail. Microphone performance is also quite good overall for game chat while sounding pretty natural. Having virtual surround sound or just the USB interface for consistent audio performance across computers may be important for some, but those with dependable audio output or on other platforms may find the external sound card redundant or unnecessary. At press time, the MH751 can be found for around $10 less than the MH752 at $80 USD. There are areas for improvement overall, but I think the MH751 is still a very capable and comfortable pair of headphones.
