The story behind the MH751…
The gaming headset market is booming these days. Manufacturers like Kingston with their Hyper X Cloud series or the Corsair Void pro series ensure that there are a plethora of gaming headset options for the avid gamer. The MH751 is actually a Takstar Pro 82 headphone (which has two variants-28 ohms and 32ohms) modified for Cooler Master. Takstar is an OEM that makes headsets for a lot of brands and are quite known for their good sounding products. There also exists a Cooler Master MH752 which has a built-in 7.1 USB DAC which is good for those who don’t have good quality sound cards.
The Cooler Master MH751 is a pretty well-built headphone with a detachable cable and microphone. This feature should alone extend the longevity of the headset as cable faults are pretty common especially with heavy usage.

The CM MH751 has quite a decent package. You get just the headset without any wires and you can then attach the cable to connect the headphones as well as the detachable mic. The cable is pretty decent. It is braided and seems sturdy enough and the wire doesn’t tangle as easily as some headphones. The best part is of course that its user replaceable.
Even the mic is user replaceable which is great for those who aren’t playing online multiplayer games and don’t have any use for a mic.
One thing that really stands out on the MH751 is just how comfortable they are on the ears. The headphones are pretty lightweight though they have just a little weight so as not to completely disappear when you are using them but the clamping force is extremely light and they sit very snug on your ears. Even after 2 – 3 hours sessions I kinda forgot that I had headphones on which is a real testament to their comfort.
Since these aren’t USB powered headphones you don’t get any RGB lighting effects so if you are interested in those, you have to look elsewhere.
The cable has a built-in volume adjustment and mic mute button which is pretty nice and useful. All in all the CM MH751 has a solid retail package and I can’t think of anything more they could have added.
