Thermaltake announces Argent H5 RGB wireless gaming headset

More lighting, less battery life.

Thermaltake, known for PC cases and cooling systems, has added a new wireless RGB headset to its Argent line up.

Dubbed Argent H5 RGB wireless, it boasts two 40mm hi-res drivers working at frequencies ranging from 20Hz to 40kHz. DTS Headphone X v2.0 support upgrades your hearing experience to a 7.1 channel surround sound, while 2.4GHz wireless connectivity sets you free from cables up to a 10m range using the provided USB dongle.

The headset is compatible with PC, Mobile, Xbox One, Mac and Nintendo Switch – PS4 is limited to wired mode only. The presence of a 3.5mm audio jack provides further flexibility without draining your battery, while a 412g weight is starting to cross into heavy territory – some of the lightest competitors tip the scales at around 300g.

Packing RGB lighting equals less battery life, maxing out at only 10 hours. That runtime extends to 19 hours when turning the lights off, though that’s still far from what we have seen recently from other manufacturers. At least RGB isn’t totally useless this time around as you can sync it with other Thermaltake products for a complete disco experience using TT RGB Plus.

The detachable bi-directional microphone is a nice touch, making it kind of usable outside, and built-in buttons ensure fast parameter changes.

Price/availability are yet to be disclosed.
