The RIG 900 Max HX is a premium wireless gaming headset (In fact, it is RIG’s flagship gaming headset) that offers a wide range of features and excellent performance. It is compatible with Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and PC platforms (and more thanks to its supporting dual wireless connectivity). The RIG 900 Max HX is one super-comfortable headset with a sleek and stylish design. The ear cups are made of soft memory foam, and the headband is adjustable to ensure a perfect fit. The RIG 900 Max HX feels like it was built to last, with durable construction and high-quality materials. The RIG 900 Max HX is a very comfortable headset to wear for long periods of time. The headset is also lightweight, weighing in at about .5 lbs, so it won’t put a lot of strain on your head or neck. The RIG 900 Max HX has a battery life of up to 20 hours on a single charge, which is more than enough for even the longest gaming sessions. The included base station will effortlessly charge the headset, and makes for a very high-class addition to your PC desk (if that’s what you play games on).
The RIG 900 Max HX features dual wireless connectivity, which means that the headset can be connected to your device using either the included USB-A 2.4 GHz wireless adapter or Bluetooth 5.1. This gives you the flexibility to use the headset with various devices beyond a console or PC (hint: Steam Deck!). It also means that you can continue to use the headset even if you walk away from your console or PC.
Furthering the gaming experience while wearing the headset, the RIG 900 Max HX supports Dolby Atmos, a surround sound technology that can deliver a truly immersive game audio. To use Dolby Atmos, you will need to download the Dolby Access app on your Xbox or PC. Once you have installed the Dolby Access app, you can create a personalized Dolby Atmos profile by taking a head scan with your smartphone. This profile will optimize the Dolby Atmos experience for your unique head shape. It feels very scientific and technical while doing this process and the end results were worth the time doing so!
The RIG 900 Max HX delivers great sound quality. The 40mm drivers produce rich and detailed sound, with powerful bass and crisp highs. The headset also has an excellent soundstage, which helps to create a sense of immersion in your game. The low-end doesn’t suffer either as RIG has paired each driver with a matching bass tubes which help enhance those low tones. I tested the RIG 900 Max HX with various titles, including Halo Infinite, Baldur’s Gate 3, and Elden Ring. In all of these games, the headset performed admirably. The sound was clear and detailed, and the bass was powerful without being overwhelming. The soundstage was also very impressive, helping me to pinpoint the location of enemies and other important sounds in the game world.
The RIG 900 Max HX has a built-in microphone with a uni-directional pickup pattern. This means that the microphone is good at picking up your voice while minimizing background noise. The microphone also has a flip-to-mute function, so you can easily mute yourself when needed. This feature has been a staple of RIG headsets for a long time and I am always pleased with how it fits into my natural workflow and behaviors. You might forget it at first, but once you get into the habit of flipping to mute, it will be second nature.
Overall, the RIG 900 Max HX is a premium wireless gaming headset that offers great sound quality, Dolby Atmos support, a long battery life, and a comfortable fit. It is a great choice for gamers who are looking for a comfortable and immersive gaming experience. It retails for $249 dollars, so it definitely isn’t cheap. But, you are getting a lot of features and quality for your money with this headset – it is the flagship RIG gaming headset and it shows. The RIG 900 Max HX is available now at BestBuy.
