Cons with the headset
When charging your headset, if you are the type of gamer that doesn’t like to wait for a full charge to be achieved, then you may be a little disappointed with the charge and play feature. Because the included cable is only 3.5mm, attaching the cable to your headset while playing your games would be very difficult. Purchasing a separate cable would have to be the inconvenient solution.
