It’s been over two years since I first stumbled upon the SADES brand. Since then, the company has been doing a lot to push their products globally. When I went to the Hong Kong Electronics Fair in 2014 to meet their Sales Manager, Mr. Deng, he told me about all the things they were doing to tap into the international market.
All of it sounded very promising.
In these past couple of years, they’ve rebranded their package and product design, and have even dived into creating Bluetooth headsets and other gaming peripherals — with mixed results in my opinion. With all those under their belt, it only seemed inevitable that they would try to revamp some of their current products.
Life is filled with unplanned events. I went to the Anime-Comic-Game Hong Kong (ACGHK) convention a couple of months ago (this part was planned), never intending to purchase an Ant-Man bobble-head vinyl figure at the Funko POP! booth. And after purchasing said vinyl figure, I never planned to write up a review here on my blog. I only intended for this blog to do reviews on games and tech — I thought expanding to geek merchandise would broaden the scope too far.

Following my review of the SADES SA-903 a few months ago, I contacted Shenzhen Sades Digital Technology Co., Ltd. to let them know my thoughts on their products. A number of e-mails were exchanged and a physical meeting took place, and now here we are looking at a review product of the SADES Skynet (SA-909) Glittering Gaming Headset. (Yes, SADES have started giving actual names their products!)
During my meeting with Mr. Deng at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair in April, he spoke of expanding SADES’ global market reach by improving their products to be more in line with expectations in the West. That means new international packaging and better build quality to attract and impress.
But does the SADES Skynet SA-909 live up to expectations? After a month’s worth of testing, let’s find out!
