Summary: It took me a while to justify keeping these headphones. I hooked this up with my XBOX One hoping it would offer sound advantage (footsteps) while playing Halo. But it didn't. That's probably got more to do with Halo than it does the headphones. I am very picky about my headphones.

Summary: I have had these headphones for a few years now and i love them. The adjustable volume switch on the headset cable is really nice because you can adjust the volume immediately without having to change the volume settings on your computer/TV.
Summary: You can use it for your PC as well as xbox and playstation consoles or if you want you can plug it into an iPod. The microphone picks up quite a bit of background sounds but the sound quality that it outputs seems to be great.

Pros: The Headset +Headset is comfortable on my ears +Sound quality is acceptable... when not plugged into the mixamp The Mixamp +It has a knobs, they feel nice to turn. +Wires Wires Wires for everything. The Packaging +Made me feel special as I unboxed it
Cons: The Mixamp -Frustrating to set up. If you're a PC gamer like I am, then you need to make sure your optical out on your computer cooperates with you. I had to fight to make the stupid Mixamp works with my PC, all because it only supports ONE and only ONE type of signal: Dolby Digital. Now ok, that...
Great sound quality for gaming and music listening

Summary: Great sound quality for gaming and music listening. More complex of a setup than I expected, but well worth it once it is setup. For gaming, it honestly feels like cheating. You can hear where all of the action is on the map (I only play first person shooters), if someone is coming up behind you,...
