Good price for what it delivers.

Summary: By phusion I've owned this product for a couple years now. I just recently sent one to a friend as a gift for Christmas (2012.) I am a Mac user. I just plugged it in, and it worked. No drivers needed. Battery life, and range is appropriate for the price. I wouldn't suggest this if you are an audiophile, but it is perfect for gaming and communication. The mic is very clear to recipients on chat programs/games, and the audio quality is good for typical purposes.
Summary: By Adam Field I am not a gamer. I work online and I needed a headset that was clear and allowed me the freedom to walk and talk. This is the best headset I have found for quality and build, clarity and comfort. I have and will continue to buy more of these.
Summary: By amac711 Ok, I agree, best sound quality I've heard and used for similar product. Problem is, it fell apart within 2 months and has been held together with duct tape since and now after 5 months is an unusable $100 piece of garbage. Yes, I take care of my equipment, this product is poorly constructed where the ear pieces and headband connect.
Summary: By Rojikku I definitely liked it in concept, but it had a few issues. One, the hotkey that it uses for answering calls is ctrl + c, which is a bitch with your clipboard...Skype support is a no if you actually use hotkeys at all. It works great, great linux support... In windows, sometimes it would cut out, and then you have to turn it all off and back on to get it to work again...It would reconnect, but not work. No known reason why that happens.
Summary: By D. Wortham I've owned these headphones for about 13 months now. There are very, very few days that I don't use them. Size: If you've got a pretty big noggin then these might be a challenge for you but if you are blessed with a more average sized cranium then these should work just fine. They are adjustable so they do fit a range of heads. For reference, I think my hat size is 7 or 7 1/4.
Summary: By Nyuusen The only reason I wouldnt give this 5 stars is because its a little fragile. If you take care of your stuff like I do it will last forever, but if your rough it will break in a second. It has the best sound and fit of any headset.
Summary: By Lorkeh A very nice headset, nice sound quality as well, works almost all the way to my living room from my bedroom, though theres a few minor issues I've had. The most apparent is the lifetime of the receiver, being on a rather thin cord, the usb is starting to die on me it seems. I need to unplug it and plug it back in every few hours lately.
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. My last one of these did die and I had no proof of purchase to access the warranty, (thanks *****). Wireless is the future, invest in your future!
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 wear even after lengthy gaming sessions.
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 ! Skyping is much easier as now I can be talking to my folks while I am in the kitchen, cooking my dinner. It is very very useful and one of the best accessories I have bought.
