The Viper V360 7.1 surround gaming headset may not impress with its "premium" build quality (materials used could be better - doesn't mean they will not last however since they do seem durable) nor with its red LEDs but it offers deep bass (especially with the ultra-bass response feature turned on - although it does tickle a bit) with surprisingly good volume levels (the volume control of the audio center is not tied to the volume control knob of the headset). Highs may not be stellar nor are its mids but based on the product specifications (sub-woofer and ultra bass response feature) it's somewhat clear that Patriot aimed primarily towards delivering plenty of bass. Thanks to its low weight and suspension system the Viper V360 is also one of the most comfortable headsets to ever make it here so do keep that also in mind. As for the microphone well just like with most similar headsets in the market it could be a lot better but since people on the other end heard me quite clearly i guess it's ok.
The Patriot Viper V360 7.1 surround gaming headset currently retails for just USD34.99 inside the USA (Amazon.com) and for just 33Euros inside the EU (Amazon.co.uk) so as expected you will not see us complain about it. After looking around it seems that the OEM supplier of Patriot also used to sell almost the same headset (small differences in specifications) for less but that's no longer the case (even if it was however do remember that you're also paying for other things like warranty and support). With that out of the way we all feel that the Viper V360 offers a great bang for your buck and for that it gets our Golden Award.
