Aside from the fact that the buds themselves glow red when in use, we struggled to see what made this a gaming-specific headset. This was made all the more confusing by the fact that these were one of the very best sets of Bluetooth buds we have ever used (and we have used plenty!), and not just for gaming. 1More has a complex explanation of how it combined titanium and graphene (two of our favourite materials, look them up) in the making of the dual drivers, but the end result is what matters, and these delivered delightful, balanced sound without trying too hard or being too demanding.
In truth, they nearly matched the Triple Drivers for sound quality but were just much easier to handle through the working day. With their supremely comfortable fit in the ear canals; lightness around the neck; and unfussy design, materials and controls, these emerged as our perfect all-day, everyday buds and they made it into our top five headphone line-up on page 66. After a surprisingly rousing music performance, the in-game audio seemed like a step back, but obviously all the same driver tech was at work here too, and the long-term comfort and long battery life (a claimed six hours) also came into play. Using the noise-cancelling tech, both in-game and on the phone, no one could find any difference in voice quality between the Spearhead and a regular boom mic.
