Great headset, comfortable and well priced.

  • Summary: Great headset, I recommend it.
  • Pros: Super comfy Good sound broadcasting from mic Good 7.1 sound, much better then true 7.1 sound from some other advertised headsets. Changeable ear cups! Durable, I've dropped them millions of times off my desk because of my cats and of my own fault and they still work almost a year after... Really long cord, good for gaming desks where your computer is far from you. USB plugin for cord in case it needs replacing. Extension for cord
  • Cons: the cord gets tangled, but I'd rather have that than a cord that is too short, and if you really dont need that big of a cord, they give you an extension. Mind you the non-extension is quite short,

  • Summary: These $100 headphones have scarred me forever, after dealing with these for several hours over a few days I am convinced these are total garbage and hope only that I can find my reciept to return them. horriblle experience overall.
  • Pros: None whatsoever, sounded good for a day and then just plain garbage
  • Cons: where do I start? bad software, installs improperly causing crashing issues ( had to system restore to resolve ) mic makes high pitched tweeking noises on other end and is too quiet, Mic doesnt work, online help non existant, impossiblle to follow online "help" due to the driver software being different than the sites heklp display ( ohh you'll see if you get conned into these ) after one week the left ear does not work for no real reason, worked one minute and the n...

  • Summary: as you can see i have been putting these headphones to work, they have been great, no trouble at all and would recommend to to any of my friends
  • Pros: lightweight comfortable earcups, nicely padded PnP..... download soundcard and good to go
  • Cons: the mic works well but in all honestly, retractability is a gimmick, just leave it extended.... save yourself the grief nothing else

Good headset, but some drawbacks

Greg, memoryexpress.com
29 July 2011
  • Summary: Very good headset, I'm a bit disappointed that just 2 weeks after the 1 year mark of buying these headphones the right earpiece stopped working. My mic cuts out during use I have to retract it to a certain position for it to work consistently. Cables are a major pain, always having to detach them from the sound card, unwind them and plug them in again.
  • Pros: Excellent sound , Padding very comfortable , Good Microphone , Easy to use - no setup
  • Cons: Microphone wires loosen over time - mic breaks , ear pieces stop working (for me just over 1 year) , Cable tangles constantly (coils up during use)

don't bother with drivers

26 November 2010
  • Summary: I'd recommend this headset to anyone who likes to spend an evening playing games. The oversized earpieces are very comfortable, and give fantastic sound. Once they fix the driver to work with TS, I couldn't imagine a better headset for the price.
  • Pros: Great sound , very comfortable
  • Cons: The driver offered makes teamspeak block all other sounds. bummer. Without the driver, you get a bit of feedback in teamspeak, but this is the only issue I've come up with.

  • Summary: Best headset I've ever had, beats my old plantronics headset away, can hear everything pretty clear on it, a good headset for the price you pay, better than paying for one of those 200 dollar headsets
  • Pros: -Good sound quality , -easy to adjust equalizer , -easy to switch to speakers , -in-line mic and sound volume adjustment , -fits over the ears comfortably , -retractable mic , this headset has been a dream for my gaming although my current computer setup can't run 7.1 sound I have a bit of echo when it comes to programs such as skype.
  • Cons: to experience the best sound quality make sure your pc can run 7.1 sound on its sound card

User Review

9 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Брал исключительно ради COD4 (сетевая стрелялка). Провозился с настройками 2 дня, но так и не добился мало-мальски приемлемого результата. Позиционирование ужасное. Если направление еще можно угадать, то дальность - полная подстава. Ощущение - что в ушах акустические подзорные трубы. Шаги и перезарядка слышны из соседнего здания так, как будто за соседней стенкой. (Выскакиваешь из засады - а там никого, а с соседнего дома по тебе лупят кому не лень).
  • Pros: Неплохо сделаны, удобно сидят на голове.
  • Cons: До реального 7.1 как корове до балета. Высокие и средние задраны до небес, а басы - тихий ужас.

  • Summary: Bra lurar som sitter bra på dom flesta "knoppar". Bra plats för öronen i kåporna. Klämmer ej. Fin tygbeklädd sladd. Micken går att skjuta in. Volymkontroll på sladden. En del störningar på ljudet från mikrofånen.
