The Cooler Master MH752 and MH751 is the company’s latest offering in their gaming audio peripherals line up. It was first showcased at Computex 2018 and special thanks to Cooler Master Malaysia that we manage to get our hands on both headsets. If you happened to miss out from our live stream unboxing of the headsets, do check it out at our Facebook Page.

MH752 vs MH751

The main difference between the MH752 and MH751 apart from the price is that the MH752 comes with a USB DAC / inline control that is capable of enabling virtual 7.1 surround sound. In this review, we will be taking a look at both headsets to determine which one is suitable for you.


Frequency response:20Hz – 20 kHz
Sensitivity:97 ± 3dB
Impedance:26 Ω
MicrophoneFrequency response:100 – 10 kHz
Sensitivity:-42 ± 3 dB
SNR:55 dB


The cable options provided in the MH752 differs from the MH751:


  • 1.5m 3.5mm-to-3.5mm combo jack (headphone)
  • 1.5m USB-to-3.5mm DAC inline controller (Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound)


    • 1.5m 3.5mm-to-3.5mm combo jack with an inline controller (headphone)
    • 0.3m 3.5mm splitter (audio/mic)

Build Quality & Design

The headsets have PU leather-wrapped steel headband and plastic earcup frame. Underneath the PU leather headband and earpads are soft foam cushion for a comfortable wearing experience.

I’m really happy with Cooler Master’s decision to go with the minimalist design. The headset looks extremely stealthy with the all black colour scheme without any RGB nonsense. Even Cooler Master’s logo on the earcup is just the CM hexagon. While some may prefer the prototype’s transparent acrylic earcup back, I personally, however, thinks that the sandstone finish on the final product is way more robust.

There is no folding mechanism on this headset, which explains the rigidity of the headset itself. Nonetheless, the braided cable and microphone are detachable from the headset for better transportability.

While I appreciate the detachable cable for the headset, due to the locking mechanism, finding a replacement cable will be a pain unless you modify third party cables.

My only complaint about these headphones is the rubberised material used at the segment that connects the earcups to the headband. Our past experience tells us it will become gooey and sticky if the headphone is exposed to a high humidity environment for a prolonged time.

User Experience

Wearing the headset, the first thing you will notice is the soft earpads makes this a wonderful headset for long hour gaming. The lightweight construction and weak clamping force further improve the wearing comfort.

Out of the box, you can basically plug in the headset and start using without the pre-requisite of installing any software. Even the MH752’s virtual 7.1 surround sound can be toggled by pressing the button on the DAC inline controller.

With that being said, if you want to have a different experience in using the MH752, Cooler Master’s PORTAL software supports different sound profile and users can customise it according to their taste. Unfortunately, the MH751 users will have to rely on their PC’s soundcard to customise the sound profile.

In terms of audio quality, both MH752 and MH751 shares the exact same audio drivers in the headset. Which means the sound quality is heavily dependant on the DAC. In this case, I will be reviewing the headset using the included MH752 USB DAC as well motherboard’s onboard sound card (ASUS P8Z77-M Realtek ALC892).

The headset itself sounds pretty good by itself with non-overpowered bass and bright mids. The treble sounds kind of muffled out but it is just right for music and games. The sound clarity produced by the driver is surprisingly good for a headset at this price range.

While using the MH752’s DAC, I noticed a slight improvement in the minor sound details throughout the mid-high range sound. What makes the USB DAC so special is the included virtual 7.1 surround sound option. Switching it on basically turns any stereo audio into 7.1 surround sound, virtually. Even though it does give a rather satisfying movie watching experience with the virtual surround sound turned on, I personally still stick with stereo audio when it comes to music & gaming.

As for the microphone, some might argue that the detachable microphone could be prone to misplacement because we humans are forgetful. In terms of sound recording quality, my Left 4 Dead 2 teammates mentioned that my voice sounded clear over the mic albeit the pop sound could have been fixed. Perhaps a foam cover for the microphone head would be an easy solution.



Final Words

Review: Cooler Master MH752 & MH751 Gaming Headset 22

Both Cooler Master’s MH752 and MH751 are great headphones for different user requirements. If your motherboard doesn’t have a good soundcard and surround sound fits your taste, then the MH752 at RM389 would serve you great. Otherwise, if you just need a no-nonsense headset, the basic MH751 at RM299 itself would perform just as well as its brother. I, personally, would opt for the MH751 because, for gaming, virtual surround is not as helpful as true surround sound which is the real interpretation of what’s happening in the game.

What ultimately makes us recommend these headsets is because of their clean and minimalist design as well as the great user experience we had throughout the testing period. The comfortable earpad alone is enough to convert me from my current headphone to the MH752/MH751.

  • Minimalist design
  • Robust build quality
  • Comfortable for a long hours usage
  • Great sound quality

  • Great value for money


  • No pop/foam filter for microphone
  • Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound might not suit every use case
