Able Planet PS500MM Headphones Review

Not bad for their price and function. Audio quality won’t impress anyone.

Introduction

The PS500MMs are a set of gaming headphones from AblePlanet. As such, they have a mic on a bendable arm and a volume switch. Unlike most headphones we've reviewed, the mic and headphones don't share the same plug: they have two 2.5mm plugs; green for playback, red for microphone, which is the color scheme that PCs use.

The headphones have a smaller-than-average set of ear pads, which make them slightly awkward to wear at first. Thankfully, we found this discomfort subsides with time.

The headphones also had very inconsistent audio quality results. They had a few drops in their frequency response and their tracking was a bit off at one point, but they have an impressively low distortion.

The SP500MMs are currently available for about $100.
