Cooler Master has entered the game earbuds with a sense of modularity with their brand new MasterPulse earphones, or in-ear headphones. They’re actually pretty unique, as this is the first time I’ve ever seen a pair of tiny earphones with a continuous dial that passively changes the low frequency response. Also, no external power required!
Let’s start off with the packaging. Cooler Master made the packaging extra exclusive, with a really hard magnetic cardboard flap that open and reveal all of its important information.
I have to say, Cooler Master did a really good job in documenting everything regarding the the Bass FX. By their word, the Cooler Master MasterPulse Earphones changes the low frequency response only – from 20Hz to about 5kHz. You know, the frequencies we hear as bass. Of course, we’ll have to try this out and see how it works out.
The box itself clearly shows what’s inside the box itself, and additional features it has. By looking at this alone, I have to give Cooler Master A+ for the packaging.
Anyway, digging all of the contents out reveals the usual accessories that a pair of earphones should have.
You get the rounded hard case, a total of 2 more sizes of eartips, documentations, and the Cooler Master MasterPulse Earphones itself. Also, that’s once thick piece of foam where the Cooler Master MasterPulse Earphones are sitting on!
While the contents that came along the box is pretty complete, I do wish to point something out – lack of an audio input/output splitter. As this pair of earphones does have a microphone and thus uses a combo jack, I think that the inclusion of a splitter cable would be nice. Not all computers have this combo jack – especially not desktops. Which makes using this pair of earphones for gaming a little difficult.
