GAMDIAS Hephaestus Overview
Now let’s take a quick look at the un-boxing of the Hephaestus and what comes with it. I’ll also touch on a couple of the features of the Hephaestus.
GAMDIAS decided to go the glamour route with the boxing of the Hephaestus, utilizing half cardboard box, half plastic shell, in order to give the end user some eye candy before opening their prize.
Here is a shot of the opposite side of the packaging, an alternate shot of the “candy” side, and a quick shot of how it appears once the plastic shell is removed. From this step, getting the Hephaestus out of it’s final box was a slight jigsaw puzzle, but generally straightforward nonetheless.
What you see here is what you get in the package, the headset, a small users manual and some sticker swag with the GAMDIAS logo on it. It is worthy to note that you do not, however, get any software in the actual package. No software with the actual product has quickly become the industry norm as it saves money, and helps ensure that end users get the latest version of the software regardless of the time of purchase.
After un-boxing the Hephaestus, you’ll notice right away that you can simply fold the ear cups flat before laying it on a surface, this keeps you from damaging or bending the non-removable USB cord coming from the left ear cup.
