The microphone provided does its job pretty decently as well. With the background noise cancellation and clear voice input, it just does its job exceedingly well. In short, the headset does its job pretty well in the performance segment as well. However, out of the box, the microphone’s voice input is a tad lower, so do tweak around the Audio boost settings to find the sweet spot.
