Engadget Summary

Sades might not be well-known in the world of gaming accessories but, with its SA-708 offering such high-end sound at a bargain basement price, it certainly has our attention.

The design isn't a stunner but the comfort is top notch, with Dragon Blogger reporting that their kids found the SA-708 "very comfortable" even after six hours of nonstop gaming. Asiageek says the ear cushions feel "quite nice" and TheBigBossGuy agrees, noting that "you will only experience difficulties if your ears are too big."

The mic can be a little sensitive, with Asiageek finding it picked up a little surrounding noise from time to time. Otherwise it sounds "quite good" and TheBigBossGuy notes that the mic is positioned in such a way that it won't pick up the sound of your breathing.

Ultimately, it's the sound quality that will make or break a headset, and Dragon Blogger reports that the audio is "very good." They felt it was a little lacking in bass and Asiageek also noted a bit of distortion at higher volumes, but these flaws were acceptable given its super low price.

If you're a professional gamer looking for premium equipment to take to your next tournament, look elsewhere. But for those gamers who need to replace a broken headset on the quick, or a parent looking for a little peace and quiet, the SA-708 will hit a sweet spot.
