Summary: Great product, has awesome sound quality for up to about 18 feet away from the computer, sometimes 20+ depending on obstructions and how much of a charge it has. The 2 Year Replacement Plan w/ADH was a nice little addition to this purchase, to enhance the lifespan of my investment.
Summary: I have been gaming for a few years now and prefer Creative Labs as my choice for speakers / headsets. Unfortunately this headset is prone to breakage after a short period of time, battery life is also short and regular charging required - but on the positive the headset is light and comfortable to...
Summary: If you have never used a wireless headset, you will be happy that you bought it. I listen to a lot of music on my desktop computer and play a lot of games. The freedom to just pause whatever you are doing and move around is awesome !
Summary: just over a year old my hs1200 headset and battery has fail and left me with useless headset, will not even work with power cable plugged in just the red light for charging nothing else.buy something else .
Summary: The headphones are good, but there are a few problems with them. First and most irritating is the battery life, it seems to only be approx 6 hours, so I do find myself with no sound while they're on charge, as they can only be charged through the PC.
Summary: I love them I'm a PC gamer, and I've never had an issue with these headphones. I where them all work at day comfortably - bring them home (after a bounce round in my bag) and they still work fine.
Summary: These headphones do work for me in Windows 7 and Ubuntu, but they aren't up to the standard that I would expect for the premium price: * As others have commented, the range isn't great. It's enough to walk around the room, and maybe to the next room, but after a few meters it will drop out.
Summary: I bought these to use for gaming as I was finding the cables from my wired headset were becoming a bit of a nuisance during gaming especially when using a steering wheel. While these do away with the wires they really are more trouble than they are worth.
Summary: Two shortcomings: - Even thought you can use it while charging, the cord is very short. So if you don't have a front panel USB port or an extender, you won't be all that happy. And even if you do, the puck will most likely be hanging in the air, making it more uncomfortable.
Summary: I don't often write reviews, as I don't have the time, but since I paid 100 GBP for these (I live in Copenhagen), and given their performance, I thought I'd save anybody else from buying them. I tried to give 2.5 stars, but was unable to. I have a very small apartment, and I do mean small.
