There are plenty of good over-ear gaming headphones on the market, but options for in-ear gaming earphones are quite limited. There are some good ones from Razer and HyperX, but they are very expensive for the Indian market.

Enter the Kreo Hydra, which is affordable and promising both. The Kreo Hydra aims to let you both game when you’re at home and listen to music when you’re on the go.

The Kreo Hydra comes in two variants: one with a USB Type-C and another with a 3.5mm aux, so you can choose according to your preference.

Design & Comfort

It has a sporty look with a black and purple colour combination, giving off an aggressive gaming wali vibe. The build quality is also good, and it definitely justifies the price tag. One cool thing about it is that it has a dual-driver setup, but still, it remains compact and lightweight. It doesn’t look bulky at all, and it’s comfortable too. You can easily wear it for 3-4 hours straight without any problem.

Below the right earbud, you’ll find a microphone and remote control that works for both Android and iOS. It has a volume toggle and microphone on/off switch.

Now, let’s talk about the microphone quality. The microphone quality is good, similar to what you usually get with most wired earphones. It’s clear, so you won’t have any issues chatting with your teammates in-game.

Performance

Let’s talk about the sound quality. The Kreo Hydra is designed to be both a gaming headset and earphones for listening to music on the go. The best gaming headset should be ideal not just for gaming but also for regular music and entertainment purposes.

A big credit for its great sound output definitely goes to its dual-driver setup. Like other gaming headphones, the Hydra’s tuning is bass-heavy, but thanks to the dual driver, the bass is well-managed here. The bass has decent detail without any noticeable distortion.

Although the bass is strong, but it doesn’t overshadow the mid and high. The vocals might feel a bit compressed, but again, mid-range instruments are detailed well, and there’s good separation overall. So, the overall audio quality is enjoyable.

For gaming, the sound quality of Kreo Hydra is perfectly acceptable. It has a wide soundstage, and the bass response is good, too. So, the overall gaming audio experience is good. The spatial awareness is also good, so you can easily get an idea of the direction of the footstep or vehicle approach in the game.

As I mentioned earlier, Kreo Hydra’s tuning is good, so besides gaming, you can also consider it as music earphones. One last thing that I liked about the Kreo Hydra is that it isolates noise very well, which is something you’d want in a good gaming headset.

Worth To Buy Kreo Hydra?

Overall, Kreo Hydra is definitely an impressive product. It serves both gaming and music purposes well. If gaming is your main priority and you’re looking for a good option within a lower budget, then you can definitely consider buying the Kreo Hydra.
