Onikuma K6 Gaming Headset

Jan 7, 2019


  • Clear sound
  • Tight around the head
  • Wired

The Onikuma K6 wired gaming headset is a good value at under $30. You can find it here on Amazon (we get a small kickback, which we really appreciate!).

What’s Good

The K6 is a pretty good headset. While playing several games, including Battlefield V and Prey, I found the sound to be very clear across the a broad volume spectrum. According to my friends, the mic was just fine as well. The overall build quality is a plastic affair, with a mic that rotates up and down. To support your ears and head, the K6 has cushions that feel more comfortable than I’ve seen on similarly priced headsets in the past.

The K6 provides you with handy controls for muting the mic and adjusting the game volume. You won’t find a chat/game balance rocker on the K6 - that’s a more luxury feature reserved for higher end headsets, such as the Razer Nari.

You’ll look pretty snazzy using the K6 as well with the blue accent lighting around the outside of the ear cuffs. This is not adjustable in any way. If you are looking for flexibility with the K6, you’ll find it when you trace the cables to their end and find both USB and 3.5mm jack connections. Onikuma go even further to include an adapter that splits the single 3.5mm jack so you can separate sound and mic. That’s rad!

What Needs Improvement

After a few hours of intermittent gaming with the K6, I found it too tight around my ears. The ear cuffs are large, but the actual holes are a bit small for my large ears. If you have regular-sized ears, this may not be an issue. The specifications of the headset, according to manufacturer Onikuma, declares this headset to have 7.1 surround sound capability. I wasn’t able to replicate that. Stereo certainly did work.

Who is this For?

The Onikuma K6 is a solid headset that can be used for gaming and listening to music. I wouldn’t recommend it for long sessions (60+ minutes), and that includes a 90 or 120 minute movie. But at $30 the K6 has a lot of flexibility - it’s not just for PC gamers. With the 3.5mm jack option, you can plug it into a PS4 controller or directly into a phone.
