Good, save for a glaring flaw.

  • Summary: By KunehoKun I like the Chatmax. It's cheap, the sound's good, the mic's good and can be pop filtered quite easily with a bandaid. Heck, I've even bought two! However, I had no intention of buying two. That's where the problem comes in; the wire is too thin and too long!

Not good!

  • Summary: Not happy with this set. After fixing headphone part, I gave it to my kid.
  • Pros: They look awesome! Removable mic is a great idea, and makes this set very funtional (sic.) - That's about it.
  • Cons: Very finicky connectors, wouldn't work well with my case's headphone and mic ports well - new logitechs didn't have that issue, just as the iphone earbuds.

Not Good :(

Dawid P., Newegg
21 October 2011
  • Summary: Maybe a lemon, maybe fault in manufacturing, maybe just a bad luck - I'll just look for other product as far as headsets go. The cord on these is really really long. Good for some maybe, but seems like it would be hard to listen on the go.
  • Pros: Nice concept, nice design and overall material quality seems very good. Ear cushions rotate :)
  • Cons: Died 2 days into usage ... while playing online game @ regular volume. Tried on other devices - no luck. Mic still worked, but no headphones. Not very comfortable. Lacks a carying case of some sort ... seems like you could loose the removable mic quickly.

Nice behind the ear headphones with a detachable microphone

  • Summary: By James Evans I was looking for a nicer pair of behind the ear headphones to replace a cheap, ten year old pair that I had been using. I bought the HS-420 to mainly listen to music on my laptop at work, and they do the job well.

Uncomfortable

18 May 2011
  • Summary: By SmidgiePie I play online games for hours at a time, and trying to find a decent headset that won't hurt after a long period of time (I wear glasses, so the pressure of most headsets hurt and cause headaches) is difficult. This headset is on my "don't buy again" list.

  • Summary: By R. Guevara Galvan "Roniux" I have a X-Fi Elite Pro Creative Sound Card and the sound with this headphones are great, the music, the games, Skype all sounds great, but the best I heard, is the bass and magnificent sound details. I recomend it. See all 7 customer reviews on Amazon.com
