Summary: I used to have the Logitech Gaming Headset G330 but it finally broke after several years of use. I wanted to try something new but something along the same lines as my previous headset (I prefer over the ear). Pros: Excellent sound quality, far better than the Logitech headset. Very attractive/sturdy. The cord is covered in a protective fabric weave and is good quality. Mic is very clear. Cheaper than the Logitech set.
Summary: So i really needed these headphones for teampseak/mumble/vent. if you use any of these then they are perfect. I don't really use these for listening to audio for movies or music purely for communication. the headphones work just fine. clear sound and the mic works pretty well. I've heard positive things from my teammates. The only downside for me is that after long periods of time (3-4 hours sometimes more) the tops of my ears start to hurt from wearing them.
Summary: I bought this headset for the primary purpose of communication on TS, Vent, RC, Skype, etc. while playing video games. For that purpose, they exceeded my expectations, Mic works fantastic and I can hear others crisp and clear though the speakers. I knocked off one star for one reason alone. The product comes with a headphone/mic USB adapter, which once plugged into a USB port will install a driver. With the headset plugged into this attachment, they work great.
Summary: Let me explain, the headphones have great sound and the mic is great for Vent and Teamspeak. The problem is the fit, after an hour or two of wearing these they start to hurt my ears and they also force me to bend the band a bit to set them on my head. I've had them for a few months;the headset was not taken out of the house, did not receive any physical trauma,and still the band snapped right in the middle on the right hand side, the side I use to place and remove the...
Summary: This headset gives great audio quality as well as a clear microphone. Friends say I sound like a real person instead of a modified robot over the internet. A little tight around my big head but eventually it will stretch out. Get this headset over the Logitech G330, trust me.
Summary: I use this headset to talk on Skype and it does a great job. Prior to getting the headset, I used the built-in microphone and while I could hear the other person just fine through the speakers, I had a lot of complaints of "noise" from my end. So I started using the headset and haven't had a complaint since - apparently I am now coming through loud and clear. The built in volume control makes it easy to adjust my volume.
Summary: When I bought these headphones I had read that some people found them uncomfortable. Unfortunately I turned out to be one of those people. After about an hour of use they become unpleasant to wear. Now as far as sound quality? Awesome. I haven't heard anything better. I've had some razer headphones that come close to the same quality. The mic works very well too. No complaints from anyone I've gamed with. Overall a great headset, if you have the ears for it.

Summary: I don't normally wear a gaming headset, but I tried one and it was convenient. Handsfree does have it's advantages. As far as the quality goes, it isn't a $500 Sennheiser headset. But it isn't a $10 no-name one either.
