This can be arranged for the entire headset or per ear. By right-clicking on the speaker or microphone symbol, you can enter other screens of the software.
The options that can be set via these menus are quite extensive. Various menus are available for the speakers, from an equalizer to a virtual speaker shifter. With this speaker shifter, the direction of sound can be changed manually or automatically. In addition, the software works with Xear surround sound. The available options are the Xear SingFX, with which tones can be changed, and Xear Surround Max. With this function, stereo sound can be turned into surround sound.
The RUSH ER40 is clearly designed to be worn for long periods of time. Even if you work with these headphones on all day, they remain comfortable to wear. The ear pads are large enough to fall completely over the ear. As a result, you will not get pain in your ears after prolonged use. Also, the headphones are not too tight around your head, and you do not get pressure spots in the area of the ear cushions. The size of the headphones is good and stable to adjust with small increments. As a result, a good fit can always be achieved.

First, the build quality of the headset is sturdy and can take a beating. The cable also deserves all the praise in this. In addition to being sturdy, this headset is still comfortable to wear, even with long gaming sessions.
The headphones stay in place and do not put pressure on your head or ears, even in combination with glasses. The ventilation is also well arranged, so you will not get a sweaty head from wearing this headset.
All things considered; I’m certainly satisfied with these headphones. It is not a high-end headset, but for the very reasonable price, you certainly cannot complain about price and quality.
