So disappointed.

ALEXANDER M., Newegg
21 August 2014
  • Summary: The headphones were good until they fell apart. The microphone piece raises and lowers but the plastic (or whatever material they use) is very brittle. The microphone broke off at it's connection to the left earphone as I was lowering it for use.
  • Pros: Pretty good sound quality! No cords! When charged, relatively long battery life!
  • Cons: Super fragile. Would have been worth the price if they hadn't fallen apart. Poor design, apparent corner-cutting. Weakpoints in the structural design of the headset left me with a broken microphone and right earpiece. (The plastic is brittle and snapped) I wish the cable would have been longer. T...

Uncomfortable but functional

Blaze F., Newegg
29 April 2013
  • Summary: There are much better headphones for the price. The feeling of these headphones just makes me wonder what they were thinking when people tested these out.
  • Pros: -Lightweight -Plug and play
  • Cons: -Uncomfortable! For a person with an average head or larger I'd probably skip these headphones entirely. Not for long use. If you wear glasses, this goes doubly for you. Headphones shouldn't begin to hurt your ears if you've been wearing them for an hour. -Doesn't seem to function at all if you'r...

Hs-w1 not worth it in my opinion

Jordan H., Newegg
13 January 2013
  • Summary: Price originally liked good and the headset looks really nice but functionality is just atrocious
  • Pros: Great sound quality Leather earbuds feel good after a while
  • Cons: -Microphone has to be all the way down -Random beeping -Microphone seems to have a touch to mute feature on it so sensitive that if my shirt touches it the microphone mutes itself -Microphone way sensitive received reports of extremely loud background noise from my friends when I did not have any...

Fantastic Headset!

Anonymous, Newegg
31 October 2012
  • Summary: Definitely worth the price I am thoroughly impressed with this headset!
  • Pros: These Headphones are fantastic as they look, feel, and act quite professional. The Leather ear pads feel great on the ears and are very comfortable. They charge via USB Micro, which is fantastic because those cables are super easy to come by since almost every new device uses that connection. The...
  • Cons: Because the ear pads are leather the headset doesn't "grip" your head. Since this is the case if your not careful the headset may fall off your head if you tilt your head downward.

Asus HS-W1

Casey S., Newegg
6 October 2012
  • Summary: For the money, the device was a decent buy. If I had of known how uncomfortable the device would be on my ears, i would have purchased something with earcups and not something flat. Also I get less and less battery life now.. I guess the battery in the unit is already failing.
  • Pros: -Folds up into small'ish carrying case w/ dongle and charging cable. -Lightweight. -Sound quality is great. -Long Battery Life.(At first)
  • Cons: -Uncomfortable for long uses(Earpads are flat). -Microphone positioning must be all the way down. -Volume Controls are a bit wonky. -Random beeping noises are annoying.

Pretty Good

Junyoung K., Newegg
1 September 2012
  • Summary: My PC is right next to my monitor but I still have to rub my nose on the screen when I 'plug and play' because the cable that comes with is too short. I don't think plug and play is possible for people who puts their pc under the desk.
  • Pros: -Light weight -Sound Quality is decent -low price yet nice product
  • Cons: - Charger cable is too short

Great Wireless headset for the money

Eric J., Newegg
31 August 2012
  • Summary: All in all, it is a great wireless headset for the money. I bought this one to replace my Logitech g930, because I lost it in the previous move, and would've cost a lot to get replaced. For the price, you cant beat it.
  • Pros: Great sound reproduction & quality, wireless reach is pretty accurate. If you are walking through your home through a few walls, expect some disconnects, until you get closer to the signal again. Says to charge full 10 hours first time before first use, and you get 8 hours battery life, that is a...
  • Cons: Wish the frame was a bit more rugged. Beeping gets annoying sometimes, I would rather have a pop-up on my screen that tells me exactly how much battery life is left, just like the Logitech g930 does. My battery wasn't getting its full charge after the first two weeks, got an RMA, waiting for repl...

Great for its price range

Austin W., Newegg
24 May 2012
  • Summary: The "random beeping" noises are the headset's way of telling you that its battery is low. A wireless headset is the second most-important contributor to my productivity and happiness as a computer user in my life. I bought the "low-end" model after warily ignoring the $20 logitech wireless headset.
  • Pros: - Good range - Good sound quality - Sturdy - Sufficiently Adjustable
  • Cons: - Proprietary connector (usb dongle) - can't use it with audio devices like MP3 players or stereos. - Flat, "leather" earpads were difficult to get used to, versus foam pads or ear cups.

ASUS HS-W1

Sandra V., Newegg
30 April 2012
  • Pros: Lightweight, fits nice on my small head, most headsets are bulky and too big. Sound is great.
  • Cons: I play WoW on ventrillo, and trying to figure the positing of the mic so it works or inst muted very tricky. The instructions are the worst I've ever seen. The microphone needs to be all the way down to speak with push to talk, if you tilt it up its muted. The headset beeps every once an a while ...

ASUS Headset

David S., Newegg
23 April 2012
  • Summary: I would not recommend purchasing this headset.
  • Pros: Light-weight and comfortable. Price is affordable and the carrying case is convenient.
  • Cons: The headset beeps often for seemingly no reason since i bought it. Now ofter about a month of owning it seems to be having trouble charging. I move the usb plug trying to get it right but that doesn't help or if it does not for very long.
