Dont waste the extra money - Buy without the USB spitfire
24 October 2013
Summary: Either they were paid to write these reviews or are simply deaf. The spitfire that comes with this (the only reason it costs £20 more and is called pro) creates the most annoying hissing noise. You have to use the headset at 50% volume on the adjuster or less and it instantly becomes the most quietest thing on the planet but the hiss is completely gone. The headset itself is ok sound wise. The microphone on the other hand is a disaster. Picks up EVERYTHING, literally.
Awesome headset, may not be good for prolonged periods of gaming.

Summary: The headset is great and after 30 hours of use it sounds great and is comfortable. The remote is very useful, the aesthetics are great and the braided cord really adds a feel quality. The mic, while not the best is of good quality and the retractable functionality is definitely a plus, however at times it can feel a little flimsy. I usually use the headset for no longer than 3 hours at a time so I cannot vouch for how comfortable it is for any longer sessions.
Summary: Got these after reading around. I use asus alot and trust their stuff. I was not let down the sound from the usb sound card makes a huge dif. The headset itsself is sturdy feeling and light and the mic is nice and clear people understand me and i tend to speak like im chewing a brick! Overall ... happy.
Summary: Build and design: ================= Do you like black and red in combination? If yes, then the Orion Pro, with its black base and crimson trim will be right up your alley. This is a 'Republic of Gamers' headset and the style follows the futuristic, militaristic pattern of most other hardware aimed at gamers. The pictures on the product page should give you an idea of whether you like this aesthetic or not.
Summary: Audio is great, mike is good enough, and if you don't use it much but want the option i i think this is the best product for the price around. The little red thingy that comes with it is really good for using different types of audio, and it comes with handy wire manager and clip on mute button
Summary: In my opinion there are 2 main factors as far as headphones are concerned;sound quality and comfort. I'm pleased to report that these headphones score highly on both counts.I have listened to a wide range of musical genres and the audio performance is exceptional for headphones at this price point.Dub reggae is always a good test of headphones and speakers owing to the extremely low bass and high top end used in this type of music.On most tracks these headphones...
Cracking sound quality and a decent all-round package

Summary: When gaming, I normally have sound thumping though my 7.1 Denon AV receiver. I love the immersion that comes with a really good quality sound set-up, and find that it adds just as much as the visuals when playing a AAA blockbuster like Far Cry 3. However, as my games room is in the attic, I need to have a back-up when playing at night so as not to keep my wife awake as I'm blowing up red barrels.
Summary: I had another pair of Creative gaming headphones before these. They were perfectly acceptable and, despite slightly poor music playback performance, I was quite impressed. However, a couple of days before getting these, the USB port broke, requiring a crude repair. So a bit less impressed with the build quality there. These are a great deal better. They have two ways of connecting.
