For nearly four decades, Monster has been setting the standard for innovation in headphones, speakers, HDMI cables, and power solutions. In fact, the defunct Nokia Purity audio series has had a number of collaborations with the brand over the last decade. With hits like Beats by Dr. Dre, they set new standards in design, comfort, and performance. 

We’d seen Monster Gaming around for a while but had never tested any of their products ourselves. Holo Space (previously RichGo) was kind enough to send us the Airmars N1 Headset to try out and review. We are ecstatic about their return to the Philippine market, which also sells Nokia-branded audio accessories.

The best low-cost gaming headphones can give all of the thrilling sound and crystal-clear microphone performance of the more expensive ones. Unlike the majority of the best gaming headsets, these models will leave you with more money to expand your game collection or invest in new PC upgrades.

When shopping on a budget, it’s normal to be concerned that you’ll simply end up with a cheaply produced piece of rubbish. Monster, on the other hand, claims that they are superior in terms of sound quality and comfort. Let’s find out in this review.

What’s in the box

In terms of packing, we weren’t expecting much from the Airmars N1. From the exterior, it doesn’t appear to be anything special, but we were pleased with how nicely it was packed and how premium it felt on the inside.

There are no extras inside. You’ll get the Airmars N1 headset, manuals, and a free sticker.

Design and Comfort

This headset packs a simplified version of Monster’s signature sleek headset design, with soft leatherette earcups and the rich drivers you’ll find in higher-end models. We tried on the black pair and found them to be very stylish.

I have to say, Monster did a fantastic job with the headset’s aesthetic choices. Despite the fact that the Airmars N1 is a gaming headset that costs just around PHP 2,000, its look does not appear to be cheap. The RGB has been replaced with a bright red LED Monster logo on both earcups and a second red LED on the microphone. 

The Monster Gaming Headset is designed for gamers who require a headset that is both noise-canceling and comfortable to use. The memory foam ear cushions are soft and breathable, ensuring that your ears stay cool even throughout long gaming sessions.

The volume control is located on the left side of the earcup. The integrated microphone can be adjusted in a 360-degree rotation.

Because the entire headset is composed of plastic, it is lightweight and comfortable to wear. A USB and a 3.5mm headphone jack are integrated into the headset. Simply plug the USB and headphone jack into the computer’s or laptop’s ports to connect and power the headset. And voila, the LED lights will turn on.

The Airmars N1 has a nice overall look and feel to it. The Monster design has always been known for its exceptional build quality, substantial padding, and great levels of comfort during lengthy play sessions.

For your peace of mind, Monster offers a 12-month local supplier warranty.

“The Airmars N1 produces excellent sound for the price, with clear highs and beefy lows that are ideal for gaming.”

Performance and Features

The audio features of the Monster Gaming Airmars N1 are rather impressive. Despite the fact that it is a budget headset, we were pleased with the clear and loud sound, as well as the good bass quality. The voices are clear and the high tones are on point. Its 50mm drivers are to thank for this.

Audio Features

  • Driver Diameter: 50mm
  • Sensitivity: 112 ± 3dB
  • Directivity: Omnidirectional
  • Impedance: 32 ± 5Ω
  • Frequency response: 20Hz-20kHz
  • Sensitivity: 105dB

We played a couple of PS5 games, and Elden Ring performed admirably with the Airmars N1. The game’s rumbles, sound effects, and even the tiniest artifacts may all be heard. We also liked how the surround sound made the game feel more immersive than usual.

The only drawback is the voice quality of the microphone. When the microphone is close to your mouth, there is a slight hiss, and the voice can be garbled sometimes. So don’t put it too close to your mouth and you’ll be fine.

We need clear bass in any music, and this device provides that. The music is sharp, mid-range, and booming as if it were coming from a party. It can be used for any form of music creation, DJ mix, or any media activity. This also means that the headphone provides excellent audio clarity in any situation.
