Could be better

Brandon H., Newegg
5 December 2015
  • Summary: Being able to switch the ear that the mic is on is a nice feature.
  • Pros: They are comfortable to wear for short sessions, I do feel fatigue around my ears and on top of my head if I wear them for more than 3 hours. Sound quality is okay, bass is decent. Haven't had any problems with mic quality that I know of. Comes with detachable rubber cable, which I prefer to brai...
  • Cons: Can be uncomfortable to wear these for long periods of time (3+hours). The sound quality could be better as well. Do not offer too much in the way of noise isolation. At $150 I'm not that impressed with the quality of this headset.

Mic Problem

David K., Newegg
20 November 2015
  • Pros: Sounds Great
  • Cons: Mic is horrible quality, its muffled like if a bag was put over it. Cant use 7.1 surround sound unless you have optical cable which isn't a big deal but still a con.

Bad Reliability

J.S., Amazon
25 May 2015
  • Summary: I'm posting this review after having it for over a year. During the times that it worked, it was stellar with great sounds, the mixamp for added controls of volume and voice sensitivity. The main reason I give this two starts is I am a person who takes care of their equipment.

Not pleased!

momoftwins, Amazon
11 March 2015
  • Summary: Bought this as a Christmas present and it has been barely used. The connection isn't always clear and tends to cut in and out. We purchased the connector for the Xbox One controller but it rarely works with it. Not pleased!

Repackaged - not refurbished!

Jeffery S. Blackmon, Amazon
22 October 2014
  • Summary: This item was repackaged, not refurbished in any way. I had some obvious signs of heavy use and some cables were tied with rubber bands rather than the factory twist ties. I have no confidence that the product was quality tested or evaluated in any way by the manufacturer.

Mixamp = Good. Headset = Uncomfortable

Ari, Amazon
9 September 2014
  • Summary: Now this is my personal opinion, but i didnt like the headset at all. The mixamp is great, i bought one separate already but the actual headset was to uncomfortable for me. I didnt like the cloth earpads (made my ears sweaty), the headset was heavy (gave me a headache every time i wore it for more...
