Pros: The microphone workED very well... please note the past tense. Save yourself some trouble and some green, and hit the back button.
Cons: First of all, the folding design liked to colapse while I was wearing them. My hair got caught in the hinges. AND wearing the earphones became painful after only about 10 minutes. This is why this headset spend most of its 1-month life around my neck, solely acring as a microphone... but this too...
If you like the foldable design for the price these are worth it.

Summary: As my pair stands today, they are what you would call "ghetto" lol. They have gone through a typical teenager abuse, cord stuck under chair and stand up tug. Dog chewing the left ear. Clip being ripped off when I forgot about it.
Pros: Foldable design can be nice in some situations. The sound quality isn't too bad. Comfortable for the most part. Decent looking. The price has gone way down so for the price these are really good, but for the twenty something I payed they're just average.
Cons: 1. The mic sucks, it eventually stopped working after a good 4-5 months I'll say, so I just ripped it off, because 2. the swivvel thing got pretty lose and the mic wouldn't sit where I wanted it. 3. The right ear foam piece came ripped. 4. Back hinge broke, actually by my friends brother, but he ...
Summary: I bought this as a quick-fix for BF2. It works very well and I'm told I sound just fine on TeamSpeak. I used it for Half-Life2 and the music/effects sounded great. Not audiophile quality, but I didn't feel that it diminished the experience. I also use it on Counter-Strike.
Summary: Well i didnt buy this headset from newegg but i had the same one. It was excellent out of the box, what you may or may not find appealing is that the back of the headset has a folding clip. This makes it easy to adjust but makes it a problem in its pulled apart or jerked around.
Summary: This headset rocks. The sound is very clear, and the base is incredible. People also told me the sound quality of my voice also improved greatly. Only reason I gave these a 4 was because, like someone else said, the tubing holding the mic broke, and it sags a little now.
Summary: I've had these for a while and they work great! Haven't broken and show no signs of breaking anytime soon. Great headset for using Skype. Sound is great and can go very loud. Microphone picks up very well.
