Layout, design and features …
The design of the MasterPulse Pro reminds strongly of Studio headphones. The great handle, the carry upholstery, as well as the large speaker chassis suggests that the headset is no ordinary model. Also the side view encouraged this first impression.
The pads on the speakers are also generously dimensioned and offer even for larger ears, like those of the tester, sufficient space. No replacement able pads, but they are equipped with a leatherette cover.
Observant users might have noticed that we talk of a headset. But where is the microphone arm? This is clever solved by Cooler Master. They have build the microphone into the left speaker case and only a small hole reveals the position.
The microphone sound despite this unusual construction, we show on the next page in the practice test. We come first to the control unit, which is integrated into the cable. The upper button has a white status LED and is required to switch the lighting.
The cable in comparison to a round cable is rigid in handling, but prevents tangling up. The durability of the cable will be certainly far beyond usual foil ribbon cables, which are often used in mobile phones or other mobile devices.
This MasterPulse version – the “MasterPulse Pro” has no jack. Thus, so it’s not usable for Smartphones or, for example, MP3 player. It is reserved only for stationary use with USB-enabled devices. The virtual 7.1 conversion, as well as the internal USB sound card, we’ll find out in the following practice test.
