Redragon Lamia 2 RGB 7.1 Headphone Long Term Review

Redragon Lamia 2 Headphone Review

Today we'll talk about a nice budget-friendly, virtual 7.1 channel, USB RGB headphone: the Redragon Lamia 2. This headphone comes at around US$40 (which is approx. Rs.6,000 in PKR). This is definitely a good buy, let's see why!

Sound Quality

The Redragon Lamia 2 comes equipped with 40mm drivers that cover a range of 20Hz to 20,000Hz (the maximum frequency of sound that a normal human being can hear). This is good because many headphones do not support the full range of frequencies like this one here. But numbers aside, the sound that comes out of it is pretty good for the price that is under $50. The drivers produce good bass and treble sounds, while keeping the distortion to minimum. Most cheap headphones suffer heavy distortion (the wierd noise that comes, you can call it dirty audio). It also features a Surround 7.1 sound system if you are into that. These come with a microphone attached to it which gives reasonably good audio. But as expected, it's not great by any means.


Redragon Lamia 2 Supports only USB input. It comes with a 6.6ft long cable which makes it easy to cable manage with your other cables, or run through back of other things to kinda hide the cable. It can work with PC and Laptop devices with a USB port, and also with video-game consoles such as the Playstation 4 and 3 via the USB cable. However it will not directly work with a smartphone as it doesn't support Bluetooth connection or a normal 3.5mm audio input. Although there are cheap connectors that you can use to connect it to your smartphone. If your phone came with a USB OTG connector, you can also use that to plug the usb cable to your phone.

Build Quality and Size

This headphone is well build and even though it's made of plastic, it doesn't feel very cheap. One thing to note is that the earcups are large and didn't exactly fit my head. So if that's something you're concerned with, now you know. There isn't any adjustment possible for the head size on this particular model which means you should only get it if your head size is fairly large. Although this might just be me and it may not bother you at all. Just thought I'd put it there. Overall the build quality is good and is still not showing any signs or wear either on body or earcups, after almost 6 months of use.

Other Features

The Lamia 2 comes with a nice RGB ring light on both sides. Although the lighting isn't customizable and only works on what I would call, RGB circulation effect. But nonetheless, it's there and looks nice when paired with my desktop setup as you can see in the picture above. Secondly, it comes with 2x Redragon stickers that are essentially Redragon's logo in red color. the sticker size is about as big as a smartwatch with square display. Moreover, they also give you a nice headphone stand that you can put on your desk and it will hold the headphones. This can also be seen in the picture above.


Overall, it's a great deal for the price. You get a Headphone with fairly good features and sound quality, a microphone, RGB, a Headphone stand and 2 Redragon stickers! That's a lot of stuff that they give you with it in the box. As for durability, I haven't had any issues whatsoever with these. I mainly use them for watching videos and also for listening to music if I want to. I'd recommend it if you're on a budget, definitely consider this.
