THE Gamer Legion H300 is the big headset from Lenovo for the gamer audience. In addition to the full-bodied design and rich in details, the company delivers a retractable noise-canceling microphone and ensures that the shell shape provides better sound insulation. Currently, the phone appears on sale in Brazil for up to R $ 430. Is it worth giving a chance to the Lenovo model?
I spent the last few days testing the Gamer Legion H300 headset and I share all the details of the product below.
Video review of the Lenovo Gamer Legion H300
THE Tecnoblog is a technology-independent journalistic vehicle that has helped people make their next purchase decision since 2005. Our product reviews are opinionated and have no advertising intent. For this reason, we always transparently highlight the positive and negative points of each product.
No company, manufacturer or store has paid the Tecnoblog to produce this content. Our reviews are not reviewed or approved by external agents. The Lenovo Gamer Legion H300 Headset was provided by Lenovo by donation. The product will be used in future content and will not be returned to the company.
Design, comfort and controls
The design of the Lenovo Gamer Legion H300 draws attention by its size and also by the details, creating a feeling of being with a premium product. It weighs 330 grams, 55g more than HyperX Cloud Stinger and 170g less than Fortrek Gamer Pro H2, for comparison.
The product has a very firm construction with steel, plastic and cushions with a material that imitates leather. And the inner part of the shell has fabric. The second arc is adjustable and provides more comfort during use, but its upper area, which is plastic, scratches very easily and impairs the look of the headset.
I also remember that there is no way to fold it and the company does not send a case for transportation. Due to its size, taking the Gamer Legion H300 on a trip can be somewhat uncomfortable and it will take up a lot of space in your suitcase.
This is a phone that covers your entire ear and even with a significant weight, it is comfortable and does not cause discomfort during use, a very positive point for those who spend hours straight playing. In addition to adjusting easily to the head, the shells are not “fixed”, so the flexibility there ensures more well-being during the game.
The situation is just not going to be favorable for those who wear glasses, considering that the huge structure can leave the accessory askew.
The Lenovo headset has a fixed cable with a 3.5 mm connection. It measures 185 centimeters and comes all braided, for greater durability. The company also introduced volume control and microphone activation / deactivation, which worked properly during my video streams. In the box, the brand also added a Y P3 and P2 adapter.
Sound and microphone quality
With music, the sound quality of the Lenovo Gamer Legion H300 did not cheer me up very much, but in games it does the trick and gives me a more vivid and immersive experience. The headset does not offer an energetic sound, so the bass is sideways, while the mids and trebles, the latter in particular, are highlighted.
More detailed people may notice that some songs are jammed when the volume is high and with little noise.
As for acting in games, as I mentioned, he manages to do a good job, both in PC and mobile games. Testing the product with Modern Combat, the tracks sounded more present and with precise dialogues, without any interference. I also remember that the Lenovo gadget is compatible with most consoles, when using the P2 input, of course.
The retractable microphone is also of satisfactory quality. It does not leave your voice metallic and allows a clear dialogue. The noise cancellation present here is not perfect, but it manages to isolate the external noise well, the exception being louder noises, such as motorcycles and trucks.
Lenovo Gamer Legion H300 headset: is it worth it?
The Lenovo Gamer Legion H300 is a headset with an invoked design and carries the gamer proposal in its DNA. For this purpose, the product proved to be efficient and can be an interesting option for those who cannot pay almost R $ 1,000 in the Legion H500, which is more complete.
To get even better, this headset could allow you to remove the cable and have a Bluetooth connection for greater versatility. I also missed being able to fold it, since we are talking about a large product that takes up a lot of space in a handbag and travel bag.
It is not aimed at the audiophile audience, as it has a more weakened sound and with noticeable noises at times. On the other hand, the microphone works efficiently and, for games, the sound is great.
