What's in the box

The Sades SA-708 headset comes in a stylish cardboard box that is primarily intended to appeal to the gamer target group. In addition to the Sades SA-708, the delivery included an operating manual in English and Chinese. You don't actually need the operating instructions because the installation is quite simple.

Equipment installation

The Sades SA-708 has two 3.5mm phone plugs. Once for the headphones and the microphone. The headphones can thus be used on all devices that have an 3.5mm audio jack. A driver installation is completely eliminated.


I am neither audiophile nor musician, yet I am trying to explain how the Sades SA-708 headset sounds to me personally. I have a AKG K530 for comparison, but of course in a very different price range plays and must be considered.

I have heard several titles in rock, electronics, pop and classical rehearsals. The SA-708 has a balanced bass, which makes the music not quite as neutral as I am used to. The overall picture can be seen. Nothing seems overdriven and no sounds are swallowed.

For a price of just 18 € so not bad. Of course you can not expect hi-fi headphones here.


I tested the microphone with Teamspeak with friends. I was clearly understood. Noise, the microphone caught no.

Workmanship and feel

The Sades SA-708 headphones are made entirely of hard plastic, with the ear cups and the headband being padded. Overall, the Sades SA-708 headset seems pretty stable. The microphone sits neatly and can be easily pushed up or down. There is a small control box on the cable of the Sades SA-708 which, in addition to the volume, can also be used to switch the microphone on or off. Unfortunately the cable is not textile-coated.

The headphones are quite comfortable to wear. It looks a bit small at first glance, but the bracket can be enlarged slightly. The padded earcups fit neatly and ensure really good noise isolation. Longer gaming sessions are possible without any problems.


Anyone who has children or pets in the household knows that headphones break every now and then. If it was also an expensive one, the pain is often deep. For only € 18 you really can't go wrong with this headset. I have to admit, I already had headsets in my hand that were far more expensive and couldn't do more than the SA-708. You can't expect a hi-fi miracle, but you get an overall round gaming headset.

What bothered me a bit, but again is not to be expected at this price, is that the SA-708 does not have a textile-coated cable. Cable breaks in particular are not uncommon with headsets. A USB connection instead of a 3.5mm jack would have been great. The headset can also be used with other playback devices. I was also a bit surprised by the size of the SA-708. The auricles seem a bit small, but wearing them turned out to be unproblematic in the end. The size of the SA-708 is also great for children.
