Vertux is a brand that was launched in the Philippines to cater to a booming gaming market, looking for affordable but quality peripherals. Although there is already a lot of competition, the demand is still growing especially with the current pandemic situation.
They cover a wide array of gaming peripherals from mice to keyboard, and even to headset stands. They offer a solid 2-year warranty through their authorized gaming channels, which seems to further strengthen their confidence to penetrate the market.
All Vertux products are now available on their official stores:
Shopee: Vertux Philippines, Online Shop | Shopee Philippines
Lazada: Vertux PH | Lazada PH
We were given a few of their peripherals to check out, so here’s our quick review of some of their most popular lineup:
Vertux Amber Keyboard
Price: Php1,165 | Buy it on their Shopee Store
We’ve had our own shares of keyboards, both from high end to low end, and this keyboard is more on the lower-end of the scale. At Php1,165, there’s not really a lot of things that can be expected from it. Sure, it isn’t a mechanical keyboard. But as a membrane keyboard, it’s pretty good. Taking aside the plasticky finish, the keys are not too clicky and the a little bit softer to touch.
- Soft keys
- Not too clicky/loud
- Plasticky finish
- Too light

Vertux Dominator Gaming Mouse
Price: Php625 | Buy it on their Shopee Store
There’s a ton of gaming mice out there, and the Vertux Dominator is pretty much standard for gaming mice. Although there’s no indication of the sensor type, it can be configured for up to 3200 DPI. It’s comfortable enough for big hands, but the space near the mid section of the mouse can get a little tricky. Despite this, it’s a proper starting gaming mouse for those on a budget.
- Sensor is pretty good
- RGB is bright
- Good for large hands
- Aggressive design scheme
- Too many uncomfortable grooves
Vertux Malaga Gaming Headset
Price: Php1,345 | Buy it on their Shopee store
It’s light, looks great, and sounds pretty okay for its price. The headset category is a bit more competitive at this price point, and a lot of competitors are in this range. However, it does offer some noise isolation and the earmuffs are pretty comfortable. Again, this is great choice for budget gamers looking to upgrade their basic equipment.
- Noise isolation
- Microphone response is good
- Multiple audio jacks included
- Lacks some bass response
- Does not seem to be super sturdy

Vertux Extent Mouse Bungee and Headset Stand
Price: Php1,075 | Buy it on their Shopee Store
One of the top sellers of Vertux, this mouse bungee and headset stand is an excellent product that is perfect for tight spaces. The mouse bungee part is flexible and made of soft rubber, while the headset stand is solidly built with plastic finish. It’s relatively well-built, although the cord has a tendency to get tangled with headset wiring. The USB hub part seems a bit over the top, and the power (wattage) that courses through this is relatively low. Despite this, it is one of the best Vertux products available in the market, though we wish it also included an audio jack instead of the USB hub.
- Excellent idea and helpful for tight desks
- Good pricing
- Bungee can get stuck in the headset wires sometimes
- USB power is too low

Vertux Streamer-2 Microphone
Price: Php895 | Buy it on their Shopee store
Headset microphones are generally okay for multipurpose use, and separate microphones are extremely helpful if they improve overall vocal clarity. This microphone ups the game by providing better microphone direction, easier mute control, and greater aesthetics. It’s a great solution for those hoping to improve audio quality in-game.
- Improves vocal quality over typical budget headset microphones
- Mute function/control
- Plug and play
- Gooseneck is rather flimsy
- No other filters
