HP Omen Mindframe headset review: HP nails the cooling, but the basics need work

The thermoelectric cooling is no mere gimmick. It really works.

The HP Omen Mindframe comes close to being a great headset with an interesting gimmick, but some beginner mistakes—lack of EQ or 7.1 controls, a beeping microphone—and oddities like its warm chassis keep it from stardom. For now, at least.

Pros
  • FrostCap’s thermoelectric cooling keeps your ears a comfy temperature
  • Elegant and attractive design
  • Sounds decent enough for gaming
Cons
  • Heatsinks leave the outside of the headset weirdly warm to the touch
  • Microphone beeps when muted/unmuted
  • No official EQ capabilities or 7.1 controls. Software is oddly bare-bones.
