Packaging

Packaging-1: The front packaging displays a portion of the headset through the transparent plastic. In addition, it labels this headset as the ultimate 7.1 gaming headset with programmable RGB lights. The rear packaging list down the features of the headset along with the specifications and a brief description about the Armaggeddon company.

Packaging-2: The right side of the packaging is transparent to give the user a glimpse of how the product looks like. The left side of the Nuke 7 packaging displays the headset driver specifications, microphone specifications, headset form factor and package contents.

Packaging-3: Here are all the contents from the packaging! The Armaggeddon Nuke 7 headset and a user manual. There are some protective plastics on the metal band to prevent scratches and fingerprints on it. In addition, they had the QC (Quality Check) sticker stuck on the headband. I wished that they had place it on the plastic earcup because the sticky glue is difficult to be removed on the headband fabric.

Design

Design-1: Here is an overview of the headset from the front and rear. This headset shares the same structure as the Armaggeddon Nuke 11 headset. It uses a flexible headband for adjustment and also a flexible microphone. There are some protruding wires in between the headband and the earcup. The volume control is located on the left rear earcup.

Design-2: The top of the headband has the Armaggeddon branding and its structure its held together by 2 pieces of flat durable metal coated in black paint. The black pleather headband has a pattern of a coarse leather skin.

Design-3: The Armaggeddon Nuke 7 utilizes flexible headband rather than the traditional locking ratchet. This flexibility helps user to automatically adjust both sides of the earcup to fit the person’s head when wearing them. The top and bottom pleather of the headband is held by 2 mini screws on each side.

Design-4: The microphone is located on the left side of the earcup and it has RGB lighting too. Both the microphone and USB cable are hardwired to the headset.

Design-5: Both left and right sides of the earcup has RGB lighting displayed upon connecting the USB cable to a device such as a laptop or desktop. The lighting is cycled through a sequence of colors.

Design-6: The earcup cushion depth is 2.5cm, width is 2.5cm and the inner diameter is 6cm. The thick black ear cup cushion is quite plushy which provides comfort for long period usage and isolates some environment noises.

Design-7: This headset weighs around 280g without cable and 330g with cables.

Software: Armaggeddon provides a software for Nuke 7 headset where you can customize different EQ (Audio Equalizer) and save them into 5 separate profiles based on your needs (gaming/movies/drama/music/blogging). In addition, you can set to different sound effect (Theater/Bathroom/Living-Room/Corridor) and also Virtual 7.1 surround sound!

Verdict

Pros

  1. Decent audio quality for its price. Crystal clear highs and mids.
  2. Solid build construction with no ratling components.
  3. Flexible microphone that can be adjusted closer to the mouth.
  4. Earcup cushions are soft and comfortable for long term usage.

Cons

  1. Earcup does not have the articulation pivot for adjustability to fit the person’s head which results in having small gaps that allows external noise to leak in.
  2. The headset produces soft bass effect by default. This can be fixed by using Armaggeddon Nuke 7 Driver to customize the audio equalizer for more bass effect.
  3. Soft buzzing sound from the left speaker driver regardless of volume settings. However, this is not noticeable when listening to music or playing game.

Areas for Improvement

  1. Implement an articulating pivot in between the headband and the speaker driver to allow earcup to fit snuggly.
  2. Update the packaging details that its using rounded earcup cushion as its not oval shape.
