Beexcellent GM-1 – Affordable Gaming Headphone
A best-selling gaming headset on Amazon and bringing together more than 1,500 positive customer reviews for a really cheap price, it rarely leaves indifferent. Therefore, for you (and for our personal pleasure) we decided to test this little RGB LED gamer product to give you detailed feedback.
A great price, a frankly cool visual, good sound from the headphones and microphone, and above all, comfort with little onions. If you are looking for an additional model, compatible with all supports (PS4 / Xbox One / Switch, PC) and inexpensive, the Beexcellent GM-1 is just an excellent choice!
We find for this entry-level headset has a solid and primary packaging with a successful gamer visual. The different elements are tidy and well protected in a box intended for distance selling and deliveries more than for an exhibition in store.
Pro: more protection and less marketing fuss which lowers the price in general!
The downside: This is not a box that will remain on your shelf or for decoration. Once unpacked it will certainly go to the trash to save you space.
Full contents of the packaging:
- Beexcelent GM-1 RGB LED gaming headset
- Connectivity: Jack 3.5 cables for microphone and headphones
- 1.5m USB cable extension
- The instructions for use and warranty.
Materials design and finish
Obviously, with such a low price, it is difficult to offer a high-end or quality item comparable to the best-wired headsets on the market.
However, the Beexcellent GM1 model is not to be outdone and in particular offers great possibilities for customization thanks to its RGB LED system and very good resistance of the materials (flexible structure, reinforced cables). It is a family product that will be appreciated by parents as much as by children for its robustness and its adaptation to the user (branches of the telescopic structure).
Also, the headphone is available in several versions: a black and blue model, a black and red model, and a special URBAN CAMO custom edition for fans of FPS and military simulation games.
There is no headphone holder integrated with this model, so you will need to get external support or find a place to store it to avoid damaging it after use.

Comfort and Weight
Quite frankly, the comfort of this entry-level gaming headset is breathtaking. Whether in the product test or over a longer use of several hours, the lightness and padding of the GM-1 are really appreciated.
The weight of 280 grams (including threads) is barely noticeable and the noise-canceling effect immerses you completely in your video game or TV series. A big plus for this headphone!
Beexcellent GM-1 Gamer Headset Sound Quality
Headphone sound: The Beexcellent GM-1 is an entry-level stereo headset (left-right) with a good presence of bass and treble. In general, the problems with headsets in this price range are the bass. However, in this model, they are reasonable and provide good immersion during game sessions or watching movies.
More and more games offer a 5.1 or 7.1 sound environment. You will not be able to enjoy it with this headphone. However, for this price we cannot, unfortunately, have everything!
In short: It is not a professional headset, but for a cheap stereo headset, it clearly does the job!
The sound of the microphone: According to our feedback after using it and the vast majority of customer reviews, the microphone of the Bexcellent GM-1 headphone is of very good quality for an article of this price. The sound reproduction is very correct, without distortion of the treble or bass and we see very little saturation with a good setting on consoles or PC.
