Headsets come in all shapes and sizes, and on top of that, they all have a variety of different functions. You have more premium-priced devices such as JBL’s Quantum 910P Console Wireless headset, but you also have more budget-friendly devices such as Nacon’s RIG 600 PRO HS, and each of these devices caters to a different audience. Today, we’ll be looking at another budget-friendly device, namely Trust’s GXT 491 FAYZO Dual Wireless Gaming Headset, which packed a hefty punch for its low price tag.


If we have to be completely honest, Trust is known as a budget-friendly hardware brand in the gaming world, and when you hear budget-friendly, you can’t help but think that devices look plastic-y or clunky. This is completely untrue when it comes to the GXT 491, however, as this wireless headset looks extremely classy and has a few subtle premium touches that give more expensive brands a run for their money. The GXT 491 looks great and doesn’t have too many bells and whistles. You’ll be treated to a solid black device, with a subtle brand name on the headband and both earpieces also don the GXT Trust name. Other than that, there are small indentations on the ear cups, which look quite nice, and there’s an LED strip on the top half of each ear cup. The color can be changed or turned off, but it’s still embedded subtly, making sure things keep that clean and classy look.

Other than the more standout features, you’ll have quite a few buttons and dials on each of the ear cups, but these have also been incorporated subtly. The padding on the earpieces is comprised of a faux-leather material, while the headband has a soft fabric.


The GXT 491 is a very comfortable device. It’s solid, but still light enough for prolonged gaming sessions, and there is ample padding to ensure things remain comfortable even during the most hectic online battles. The headset is an over-ear device, meaning your ears don’t get squished, which is also a plus. The over-ear design also filters out some of the outside noise, but as this is not an ANC device, you’ll still hear some things that happen around you. The headband also has sufficient padding and rests comfortably on top of your head. You can also adjust the size. That being said, the Fayzo does have a fairly tight grip, which might take some time to get used to if you commonly use a looser headset. Even so, thanks to the slightly tighter grip, the headset stays in place when making sudden movements or looking up or down.


Truth be told, there is not much setup required to start enjoying the crisp audio of the GXT 491 Fayzo headset. You can either opt to use the included USB dongle for a 2.4 GHz wireless connection, or you can connect the headset to a Bluetooth device. As this is a Dual Wireless Gaming Headset, you can be connected to two devices at once, but you’ll have to use the dial on the left ear cup to adjust the volume for the channel(s) you wish to hear. It’s all very straightforward and it doesn’t take too long before you know the position of all dials and buttons. Other features include muting your microphone, adjusting the overall volume, changing the LED light settings, and turning the device on or off. This headset can also be connected to quite a few different devices, such as your smartphone, PC, PS4, PS5, and Switch.

As expected of a 7.1 Surround headset, the sound quality is great. You’ll be treated to crisp audio feedback when playing games but also when watching your favorite series and movies. We also enjoyed the overall deep bass, which is often a feature that’s neglected on more budget-friendly devices. Even so, when playing games such as Helldivers 2 or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III we were fully immersed and the battlefield never felt closer. Those on the receiving end could also hear us loud and clear, even though we did sometimes have to reposition the microphone a bit.

The battery life of the GXT 491 is also quite good. We could easily get around twenty hours out of each charge. When using the dongle, the headset’s battery drains slightly quicker than when we were using the Bluetooth connection. Even so, you won’t have to charge the device after every single gaming session, which is certainly a huge plus. Charging is done via a standard USB-C cable.


Trust’s GXT 491 FAYZO Dual Wireless Gaming Headset is a great and affordable gaming companion that works on a variety of platforms. We could easily swap between our PC and a mobile device when needed, and we enjoyed crisp audio feedback for every single activity. Other than having to readjust our microphone from time to time, there’s nothing really bad to say about this budget-friendly headset. If you’re looking for a classy-looking dual wireless headset, we suggest checking this one out.
