How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Ear Force Z6A is a solid headset, with surround sound that "really enhances the gaming experience," according to KitGuru, though they thought that "when listening to music, the experience isn’t quite as impressive," and Maximum PC declared the bass response "a little weak." But gamers should be pleased overall, as MMORPG.com found the Z6A "quite comfortable for extended wear," and the voice chat to be "pinpoint clear." KitGuru felt it offers "reasonable value for money as it offers top notch performance in a quality package."
