Acer Predator Galea 350 | Review

Often spending a lot of money to buy certain accessories is not the best choice to make, given that there have been a myriad of products on the market for some time now characterized by an excellent quality / price ratio that do not make us regret the most famous brands. Acer, with its new Predator Galea 350 tries to make everyone agree, proposing a good quality headset able to satisfy, in some areas, even some of the most demanding gamers.


The packaging is minimal. Inside we find the headphones, two adapters to use them both via the 3.5mm jack and via USB and the various manuals. The USB connection integrates a sound card, which allows you to control some settings directly, without having to go through the Windows settings.

Design and features

The headphones are quite bulky, but very light. They are characterized by a clean, modern and at times even elegant design, despite being a product dedicated to gaming. As for the materials, it is plastic that reigns, but it turns out to be of good workmanship since it is very flexible and resistant. The earpad adjustment mechanism is good, even if a little weak.

The jack cable is long enough and allows the headphones to be connected directly to the PC motherboard, without hindering movement in any way. It is made of nylon and is therefore very flexible and resistant. The microphone has a retractable mechanism, already seen on some models of other brands, which allows it to be hidden inside the pavilion when not in use.

As for the specifications, we are faced with headphones with a 50mm diameter driver on board, with an impedance of 32 ohms and a frequency response ranging from 20 Hz to 20 KHz. The microphone is unidirectional and supports noise cancellation, has a frequency response ranging from 100 Hz up to 10kHz.


As for ergonomics, the headphones are quite comfortable, however, given the appreciable lightness and the presence of a small cushion on the part of the headband in contact with the head. Unfortunately, however, the pavilions, despite being equipped with excellent sound insulation, tend to make the ears sweat a lot, thus not guaranteeing good perspiration. Also noteworthy is a certain pressure exerted on the frame of the glasses, which makes the headphones annoying to wear after a few tens of minutes.

Audio and microphone

The Acer Predator Galea 350 offer good quality sound, given the market segment they are going to occupy. The 50mm drivers allow for a fairly clear and gaming-friendly audio, tending to bass, with good mids and somewhat poor highs. During our video game tests the headphones performed very well, with a really well reproduced spatial audio.

The USB sound card allows you to physically manage some settings very quickly, including equalization ( it is possible to select the three profiles Game, Movie and Music), the volume control and the rapid deactivation of the microphone, all without the aid of any third-party software. At maximum volume, we did not notice noise, hiss or particular distortions of the audio.

As for the microphone, the audio quality is overall good and average compared to the price range. Equally good is the suppression of background noise, although sometimes some noise has not been completely filtered out. Overall it turns out to be a good microphone in the gaming field, but we do not recommend it if you want to record videos.
