All Hail the Ozone Spark Gaming Headset

by JoHarrington

Communication is vital, when you're up against ferocious pixel bosses with your friends. I have found the perfect headset for this gamer, and I'm sticking to it!

When a tragic computing accident destroyed my Ozone Spark Gaming Headset, there was only one thing to do.

I bought another set, exactly the same as the first.

After all, they had served me faithfully and well; and it's not Ozone's fault that I can't look where I'm moving computer tables.

The two days without being able to talk to my friends have been terrible! But I'm back up and running now.

She Talks! Returning After Two Days of Being Involuntarily Muted

My old gaming headset has been replaced by another one - identical to the first!

I can't tell you how relieved I am.  It's not every day that I catch up with friends on Skype, Ventrilo or the rest, but it's most days.

Last night, it felt like I was pressing my snotty nose up a cold glass window.  All of my friends were in that chat, hanging out, socializing, discussing wonderful things, and going on raids. 

I couldn't.  I'd accidentally destroyed my headset; and now nobody could hear a word that I said.

I had no-one to blame but myself.  I'd recently built a brand, new computer, which involved a lot of crawling around under desks, as these things usually do. 

Along the way, there was an almighty BANG, as I shifted a computer table.  At the time, I was mostly just glad that it had been the floor and not my head in the way of the falling headset.  But compounding matters by not moving it, before I landed the desk on it, was probably an error.

In truth, I wasn't worried.  I've been using my Ozone Spark Gaming Headset for years and it is very robust.  It has to be with me around, because I deliver some terrible abuse to my audio equipment. 

I have a large box which is pretty much a graveyard for dead gaming headphones.  I keep them in case I have to cannibalize old ones to make newer ones work.   Half of them are stuck together with duct tape.

This has NEVER happened to my Ozone Spark headphones.  They have survived everything but this latest episode.  Even then, it was only the microphone which died!

Out with the Old and In with the New!

Why I Keep Going Back to Ozone Spark Gaming Headsets

I'm partially deaf, so I need headphones which cancel out all background noise. These are the best so far!

Often it's the little things which cause you to favor one gaming headset over another. 

For me, the moment when glee flipped over into love was when I needed to turn the light on mid-fight.

The cable on the Ozone Spark is very long.  I've never measured it, as most of the time its length is hidden behind my desk.  The box is telling me that it's over 2.5m (8.2ft). 

Either way it's plenty long enough for me to leap up out of my seat, and reach the room's light-switch, without losing momentary communication with my friends.

Things like that are quite important, when you've got bosses on the prowl.

Of course, there's much more to the Ozone Spark headset than that.  The way that it folds practically flat is what most people would point to as a highlight. It makes it perfect for shoving into a laptop bag.

As I've indicated above, its sturdy, robust build is another definite point in its favor for me.  I've never once had to reach for the duct tape to hold it together.

Plus there is another huge, absolutely massive factor in my life.  I am completely deaf in my right ear.  I have certain needs in any gaming headset; primarily the ability to cancel out all external noise, in order to concentrate on the important sounds.

Like my friends yelling for food and healing, while the pixel predator looms.

Ozone Spark Gaming Headset has never let me down on that score.  I sometimes think that I can hear better on-line through it, than I can in real life!  And this is the reason that I will keep on returning to it time and time again, until Ozone stop manufacturing it.

I Love my Ozone Gaming Headset!

Though I really should have chosen something more kick ass than Terraria to be playing, when these pictures were taken.

Le Spec as Described on the Actual Box

Because most gamers probably couldn't care less if they can reach the light switch!

Ergonomic Adjustable Headband

So you can set your preference, increasing stability and comfort.

Driver dimensions - 50mm; impedance - <3.2k; frequency response - 20 ~ 20kHz; sensitivity (SPL) - 100dB+3dB.

Earpad Hinge for Folding

Headset can be folded for portability and easy transportation.

Earpad Red Interior

Style design and personality is a distinctive aspect.

(Oh yeah!  I should have mentioned that it also looks good!)

Revolution Adjustable Microphone

An adjustable gaming weapon, when communication is part of the game.

(Still twitching from the trauma of being without this for two days.)

Microphone dimensions - 6.0 x 5.0mm; directivity - omnidirectional; impedance - 2.2K; SPL - -45dB+3dB.

Inline Controller

Allow control of volume and Mic On/Off functions.

(I should add that there is a slight downside, amongst all of the benefits here.  I find that when I type, the inline controller hovers near to my keyboard.  As there is a second microphone there, my friends are suddenly deafened by my typing.

First world problems.)

I haven't tried these, as I'm too enamored with Spark. But I should imagine that they are all of the same standard.

My Steelseries headset is approaching its final few days so maybe Ozone Spark is the way to go.

JoHarrington on 11/27/2013

You're very welcome. I'm still using mine. Listening to music through them as we speak. :)

JoHarrington on 01/08/2013

Is yours an Ozone too? I do like them.

JoHarrington on 01/07/2013

LOL Did I and it look anything like you expected?

JoHarrington on 11/12/2012

LOL I have another (or possibly the same) sitting on my coaster right now. Sadly, it's empty. Looks like we both have excellent taste in mugs.

Thanks. :)

Looks like I have the identical beige coffee cup as you have! Just saying. Nice info here. :)

JoHarrington on 11/02/2012

I could certainly do that, but it wouldn't be personal experience. Oh actually! It could be! Just occurred to me that I know people with an IT shop!

*cough* article on wireless headsets *cough* research and review *cough* :) the public is speaking hehe

JoHarrington on 10/27/2012

I'm wearing mine as I write. They're blaring Nightwish tunes into my ear. I can thoroughly recommend them. And the headset. :D

JoHarrington on 10/26/2012

Oh! You've tried them? I'm glad that you've shared your thoughts, as I've never even seen one. Thanks!
