Summary: I've always needed different headsets for listening to music vs talking to people on my iPhone. No headset I've found in 2 years had the combination of excellent mic sound (for the caller on the other end) and excellent musical sound (for me). These headphones have nearly perfect sound quality, with (in my opinion) just a bit of overaccentuated mid-bass in the 40-80 hz range.
Summary: Short and sweet review. + Coming from a set of Astro A40's, the definition in clarity is fairly substantial. Everything appears a lot more clearer especially in the mid to high end. As per previous reviews, you don't get any muddy bass. There is still bass present but it is less boomy and takes a back seat. You could probably increase it via EQ for music listening if you prefer that type of sound.
Excellent Sound, The Most comfortable headset ever

Summary: So far my first impression with this headset in one word would be, AMAZING!!! sound is very good, i own the Sennheisser G4me one, the sony wireless headset, and Sony Pulse, and this headset beat them in every category, since the first time i tried the semi open back AKG 240 Mkii, open back headphones , headsets are my First Choice, i don't like any Bass heavy cans, so for me these headsets are just perfect.
Mic mute button is 'hold to mute' instead of a toggle button or switch.

Summary: The excellent & very analytical sound quality (very well defined mids and treble with absence of bass) carries over from the AD700 and AD700x models that we know and love for competitive gaming. Added in is a great quality mic that almost made this headset a keeper for all around use. But as a person that plays on consoles (Xbox One & PS4), it is impossible to mute the mic without holding down the mute button (literally keeping your finger on the button) on the PS4.
Exceptional long-duration comfort, mic size, integration, and overall headphone sound quality.

Summary: For the price, you are definitely getting what you are paying for in quality and design, and I believe it has a clear edge on its competition for long-duration comfort, mic size, integration, and overall headphone sound quality. Ease of installation was nice and smooth. Just plug and play, Windows 7 PC recognized it easily and quickly and was ready to go. The fact that the usb plug is also its own soundcard is a really great thing, especially for laptop gaming.
Summary: The sound is really clear, with some adjustments with the sound card it can give a nice bass, not too much so you can't hear the other sounds, just enough. Really light, can have them on the head for a whole day without being uncomfortable at all and the mic is crystall clear.
