Velocilinx Boudica Mouse/KB/HeadSet Review

Velocilinx Boudica Mouse/KB/HeadSet Review
Draul

The Velocilinx Boudica line of products is one of the newest product lines from the company Velocilinx. I was given a mouse, keyboard, and headset to review. I am going to be doing them as a single review as an entire product line. Along with my thoughts and experiences using each product, I will give you the full list of specs for each product.  

I have used many accessories from a large number of companies. In the past, I have used Logitech, Razer, Turtle Beach, Sades, Corsair, Steel Series, Astro, HyperX, Sony, Bose, Plantronics, Blue, and Viper Gaming/Patriot. My point is a reference to experience before I get into talking about each product.

Up first, we have the Velocilinix Boudica Headset

The headset has the double band at the top, but the main support bar is metal, which makes it durable. The ears are comfortable when wearing, and it doesn’t feel too heavy on my head. It does block out most background sound while wearing them. If your playing any sound and want to hear someone or listen for an emergency, you might want to leave one ear off. Otherwise, it does a great job if you’re not wanting to hear anything else.

The sound is above par. It isn’t the best in terms of other products, but it’s not bad. The simulated 3D is one of the better experiences that I’ve had. The worst part of the headset is the microphone. It is not very good for communication. While on discord or zoom, people had to put me at max, which is 200% volume. On my end, I had the gain turned all the way up, and the windows volume maxed out. If I turned it down by 1, then I was almost completely mute when talking to others. I used the headset on three different PCs, including different USB ports on each PC. It does have great directional noise canceling. Possibly too good?

Pros

  • Look and Feel
  • Well built
  • Noise-canceling

Cons

  • Extremely quiet microphone
  • Not the best audio

Up next, we will check out the Velocilinix Boudica Mouse

The Velocilinix Boudica Mouse might be one of the most comfortable mouses I have ever put my gigantic hands-on. It is an extremely comfortable mouse. It even gives you a tingle when you feel the clicks of a button. NO, not because it is electrocuting me either… It just feels good when you click the buttons on the mouse. 

On top of it being comfortable, the mouse is fairly heavy. This weight means if you take your hand off the mouse, it doesn’t slide. So it is an ideal mouse for an FPS player. Part of the mouse is made of metal. The buttons all make satisfying clicks. However, it doesn’t have all that many buttons. Which for someone who is disabled and only has use of one hand, it makes it difficult to use. 

The mouse has a great design, and maybe I’m just odd, but I would often find myself just looking at the mouse and keyboard in awe from time to time. It has many options for changing the DPI, which is another great feature to have. However, with my hand being so big, I did, on occasion, accidentally push the dpi button, and it would completely mess my game up until I would fix it. 

Pros

  • Great Design
  • Weighted perfectly
  • Satisfying button clicks
  • Very comfortable
  • Many dpi settings

Cons

  • Not enough buttons (Lowers accessibility)
  • Badly placed DPI button.

Finally, we have the Velocilinix Boudica Mechanical Keyboard

When it comes to the Velocilini Boudica Keyboard, there isn’t a whole lot to say. It is a mechanical keyboard. It has loud but satisfying key clicks when typing. If you are looking for a quiet keyboard, then you definitely do not want this keyboard. It doesn’t have any extra keys other than the button to adjust the led lights. Its a somewhat smaller keyboard than most you find these days. The keyboard itself is metal, so it is pretty heavy. It also makes it more durable and easier to clean. 

Pros

  • Well made
  • Sturdy/Durable
  • Nice visual design

Cons

  • Lack of features
  • Can be too loud

With all the products comes software developed for their products. With the keyboard software, you can remap buttons and create profiles. With the headset, you can change the gain, or use the audio equalizer. The mouse software is similar to the keyboard. Of course, you can also change the lighting on the products with said software. 

The cost of the mouse is $52.99, the headset is $69.99, and the keyboard is $109.99. For most of these products, I would say they are worth the price. You are getting what you are paying for. Their durability makes them a good purchase.
