GXTrust GXT491 Fayzo Headset Review

Welcome to my review of a multiplatform gaming headset, the GXTrust GXT491 Fayzo. This is one of the latest headsets in the Gaming x Trust line from Trust. It provides an ultra-low latency wireless connection as well as Bluetooth simultaneous connection.

This over-ear headset provides 7.1 surround sound as well as stereo sound. There’s also some RGB lighting on the outer side of the ear cups.

This headset comes in three colour options. Black, white, and purple. For my review, I was sent a black pair.

The Hardware

In the box, we have the headset (of course), a user guide, a legal and compliance leaflet, a 2.4GHz wireless USB adapter, the microphone and also a foam cover for it, the 1 metre USB C to USB A charging cable, and a 1.2 metre 3.5mm stereo cable.

As mentioned above, not only does this use 2.4GHz for low latency, but you can also connect to a device via Bluetooth, at the same time! For example, you could be watching a movie on an iPad whilst playing a game on your PS5. If you can multitask like that, then this headset is good for you.

The Fayzo does have 7.1 surround sound, but I felt this sounded rather dull compared to stereo mode. Stereo mode seemed to have more punch to the bass as well as an overall better quality of sound. I guess this is thanks to the 50mm drivers in each cup.

This could just be my ears, but I am usually quite a good judge of audio hardware. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t sound terrible in surround sound mode. To be fair I do think surround sound mode is quite hard to do in headsets. I don’t think I’ve heard a decent surround sound in a headset, yet. But I haven’t used real high-end headsets.

The free downloadable software (on PC at least), allows you to tweak the equaliser, thus meaning you can tweak the sound to your liking.

Anyway, back to the Fayzo. As it’s wireless, of course, it has a battery in it. The battery life is pretty impressive considering it has lights on it too. We’re looking at up to 22 hours of usage before needing a charge. Of course, things like the lights will lower this expectancy. I have used these a lot and it felt like the battery lasted more than 22 hours… But I wasn’t counting the time so it could be accurate.

The microphone sounds like your typical microphone, it’s nothing special. But, it’s also not terrible. It will suit most people who are gaming with friends and not worried about the highest-quality microphone. If you’re a streamer/creator wanting the highest quality microphones, this will not work well enough for you.

Due to the many input options (Bluetooth, 2.4GHz, 3.5mm), this headset supports a lot of different platforms. I have used it with my Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, Windows 11 PC, and Steam Deck. It also supports PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It supports them all with ease which gamers with many different platforms will appreciate.

To round up my thoughts, for the price paid, this is a pretty decent wireless headset.

Conclusions

Whilst this headset isn’t one of the best I’ve used, I would like to add that it’s also a very fair price. At the time of writing you can buy the GXTrust GXT491 Fayzo for £59.99 on Amazon.

Unfortunately, for me at least, I did not like the sound of the 7.1 surround option. To my ears, this mode sounded washed out and quite empty, whereas stereo sounded pretty good.

I give the GXTrust GXT491 Fayzo an 8/10.
