The Redragon H848 IRE Pro Headphones are a wireless gaming headset that offers a sleek and modern design, a detachable and noise-canceling microphone, and three modes of connectivity: 2.4Ghz wireless, Bluetooth, and wired. They are also very lightweight, weighing only 183 grams, which makes them comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I was sent the gray variant of the Redragon H848 IRE Pro Wireless Headphones. As always, thanks to the awesome folks over at Redragon for sending these and so many other great products over to me for review.

Build Quality

The build quality of the headphones is decent, but not very durable. The headset is made mostly of plastic, except for the metal mesh vents on the earcups. The headband slider is also plastic and does not have a traditional yoke mechanism, which means the earcups do not tilt or swivel. This could affect the fit and comfort of the headphones, especially for users with different head shapes and sizes. The exposed rubber cabling on the earcups could also be prone to damage or wear and tear over time.

One thing to note here when I say the build quality isn’t durable. I’ve not had the product break on me as of yet and I’ve had them for a few months now. It just feels like the material is fairly weak and could easily break if handled a bit too rough. I feel it wouldn’t take as much rough handling for these to break than other products from Redragon that I have reviewed in the past.

The headphones have a gray color scheme, with red accents on the logo and the microphone jack. There is also a solid black color scheme, as well as purple/white, pink/white and blue/white. The earpads are made of soft leatherette, which are comfortable and breathable, but could also get sweaty after prolonged use. The earpads are also removable and replaceable, which is a plus. The headphones have a foldable design, which makes them easy to store and carry. However, they do not come with a carrying case or pouch, which could expose them to dust and scratches.

The headphones have a simple and intuitive control scheme, with a volume control wheel and a mute button on the left earcup, and a power button and a mode switch button on the right earcup. The buttons are easy to access and use, and have audible feedback. The headphones also have LED indicators that show the battery level, the connection mode, and the microphone status. The LED indicators are bright and visible, but could also be distracting or annoying in dark environments.

Battery Life

The battery life of the headphones is impressive, as they can last up to 20 hours in 2.4Ghz wireless mode, and 10 hours in Bluetooth mode. The headset takes about 2.5 hours to charge fully, using a micro-USB cable that is included in the box. The headset does not support passthrough charging, which means you cannot use and charge them while they are plugged in. This could be inconvenient if you run out of battery in the middle of a game or a call. The headset also has a low battery indicator that flashes red when the battery is below 10%. The headset will also beep and announce the battery level every hour.

The headphones have three modes of connectivity: 2.4Ghz wireless, Bluetooth, and wired. The 2.4Ghz wireless mode is the best option for gaming, as it supports 7.1 surround sound and has a low latency of 16ms. The Bluetooth mode is suitable for connecting to smartphones or tablets, as it supports multipoint connection and has a range of 10 meters. The wired mode is a backup option, in case the battery dies or the wireless connection is unstable. The headphones come with a 3.5mm audio cable that can connect to any device with a headphone jack.

Sound Quality

The sound quality of the headphones is excellent, especially in 2.4Ghz wireless mode, which supports 7.1 surround sound. The headphones deliver clear, balanced, and loud sound, with good bass and treble. The headphones have 50mm drivers that produce a wide frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz. The headphones also have a custom equalizer software that allows you to adjust the sound settings to your preference. You can choose from four preset modes: music, movie, game, and custom. You can also adjust the bass, treble, and surround sound levels manually.

The headphones are great for gaming, as they can create an immersive and realistic soundstage, with accurate positional cues and directional effects. You can hear the footsteps, gunshots, explosions, and dialogues clearly and distinctly, and pinpoint the location and distance of your enemies and allies. The headphones are also good for listening to music, as they can reproduce a variety of genres and styles, from rock to classical, with rich and detailed sound. The headphones are also decent for watching movies, as they can enhance the atmosphere and mood of the scenes, with dynamic and cinematic sound.

The headphones have a high sensitivity of 105dB, which means they can get very loud without distortion. However, they also have a low impedance of 32 ohms, which means they can be easily driven by any device without an amplifier. This could also affect the sound quality, as some devices may not have enough power or quality to drive the headphones properly. The headphones also have a passive noise isolation feature, which can block out some ambient noise, such as keyboard typing or fan noise. However, they do not have an active noise cancellation feature, which could reduce the background noise further.

Microphone Quality

The microphone of the headphones is detachable, flexible, and noise-canceling. The microphone has a natural and amplified sound, and can filter out background noise, such as keyboard typing or fan noise. The microphone connects to the headset via a jack square plug, which is secure and stable. The microphone also has a mute indicator that glows red when the microphone is muted. The microphone also has a high sensitivity of -42dB, which means it can pick up your voice clearly and loudly. However, it also has a low impedance of 2.2k ohms, which means it can be affected by electromagnetic interference, such as from other devices or wires.

The microphone is ideal for gaming, as it can deliver clear and crisp communication, with minimal distortion or feedback. You can chat with your teammates or opponents, and coordinate your strategies and tactics, without any lag or interruption. The microphone is also good for making calls, as it can transmit your voice clearly and naturally, without any echo or noise. The microphone is also decent for recording, as it can capture your voice accurately and faithfully, without any clipping or popping.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the Redragon H848 IRE Pro Headphones are a great choice for gamers who are looking for a wireless headset that has a good sound quality, a long battery life, and a comfortable design. The headphones are also versatile, as they can connect to various devices, such as PC, smartphones, and PlayStation, via different modes. The headphones are also affordable, costing around $39.99, which is a good value for money.

The main drawbacks of the headphones are the plastic build quality, the lack of passthrough charging, and the perforated hard plastic on the top of the drivers, which could be uncomfortable for some users. The headphones also do not have a retractable microphone, which could be inconvenient if you lose or misplace the detachable microphone.
