Summary: Best headset around WHEN it worked. I have used about 6 other different headsets so I do have some others to compare to. I don't get it though the wire looks and feels very durable.
Pros: Best headset I have ever had... but look at cons.
Cons: After 10 months of use the left speaker went out and if you wiggle the wire it might or might not work so I ended up sending them back to Asus. Took about 2 months for me to get them back and only about 1 month later, same exact thing happen to these. so NO GOOD ASUS.
Cons: mic is downright terrible, not because you can hear it due to ms voip, but because it sounds so bad to the folks on the otherside. Sounds worse than a telephone, i am only keeping them since i use them for my nvidia shield, I bought them to replace a broken logitech headset, wish I hadn't as the mic is awful no matter where you use it.
Pros: Amazing, this headset has outrageous sound. It is very crisp and clean. The controls on this thing gives you so many sounds options and it is all plug and play. I also really enjoy the surround sound that it gives during fps games, I hear which direction people are running around at. Comfortable for hours at a time.
Cons: The cord is extremely long. To some this is a perk but it is a bit excessive in my opinion. This is a very nit picky thing, I had to think hard to find a flaw.
Pros: Sounded amazing right out of the box. Fit comfortably and only noticed a bit of discomfort (but that was after marathon gaming sessions). Never got around to truly testing out the mic, but loved the options for FPS, made footsteps louder.
Cons: After a couple months the right speaker started cutting out to the point where no amount of fiddling would make it work. I contacted Asus and received an RMA. They sent a brand new pair, but a few months later the exact same thing happened. It's a bit frustrating.
Cons: My left speaker started cutting out very soon after buying it. It now won't play any sound unless you get the cord in the perfect position. The cord seems built well but I did not get what I paid for here.
Summary: After going through a few different cheaper headsets, this headset has been a great buy. I would definitely recommend it to any gamer.
Pros: Great looking and great sounding. I got an instant edge in gaming due to the fact I can hear enemies much better. This headset is very comfortable and blocks out most outside noise. Makes a loud window AC unit virtually silent. Friends noticed my voice sounding much clearer than my previous mic.
Cons: Mic seems to lose position really easily when not on my head, so I must re-adjust every time I play, although it doesn't need really any adjustments while I play, so this is kind of a moot point and I won't take an egg away.
