Summary: I needed a decent analog headset to assist my blind vet friend using VoIP and remote access to his computer. This headset works very well for that. A nice bonus is that it has fairly good sound quality for music, and works with my Dragon Naturally Speaking Premium v. 11.5. I'll test it with my friend's Naturally Speaking Professional v. 11.5. It should work, and he'll probably buy two.
A non-gaming review. I wish it had ear isolation. Still, a good value.

Summary: By bjshourt I was looking for a relatively low-cost dual-use headset, one that is good for music and also for iPad and iPhone voice and video call use. I wanted something that has good isolation to hear in noisy environments. But they cost a lot more. This product offers very little isolation but the upside is it's pretty light, not too much pressure on my ears, and my ears don't get hot like they would with a high-isolation type.
Summary: By Gregory P. Alford "Senior Consultant" I was looking for a good headset to use for online meetings, online training sessions, and Skype. This fit the bill. They are comfortable and people at the other end have had no complaints about the quality of the sound. They are light weight enough to be used for extended periods of time. I can still hear ambient noise when wearing them, otherwise I would have given them 5 stars. Overall, I would recommend them.
Summary: By Tamer10 creative might not be known as it should be here in the USA as it is overseas. I am a big fan of creative products but this one was really bad, although the sound quality was awesome but the mic wasn't working and they tried to solve the problem but figured out that it's a driver problem. I returned it and got my refund thanks to AMAZON.
Summary: By Adam I've burned through a lot of headphones over the years, and I know what I like and dislike. These - I like. They have enough leeway with adjustments to make sure that the majority of people will be able to place them on their head in a comfortable position. The ear muffs are nice and soft, and don't create a death-grip on your head (which invariably caused me headaches with other headsets.
Summary: By Jenn "Jenn" This is a Vine review of the Creative Labs ChatMax HS-620 Gaming Headset. I requested the headset because generally I like Creative Lab products but have not been entirely pleased with Creative's Fatal1ty gaming headset which I already own. I was curious to see how the HS-620 compared to the Fatal1ty. Audio: The Creative HS-620 audio is better than the Fatal1ty in hearing subtleties in both game play and when listening to music.
Summary: By Karen C. Mayer This headset had everything going for it--comfortable, good fit, the sound was great and then "pop" no sound in the left ear! If you want a great product for less than a week this headset is for you but if want a more lasting experience, beware.
Summary: By Dominique W Five of us tested this headset (My husband, a teenager, two younger children & me), and all of us ranked it better than any we've had in the past. Keep in mind, we are pretty frugal with headsets since I have younger chlidren that can easily destroy them with use. It was easy for the younger children to put on and play on their favoite sites. It was nice that I didn't have to hear them play on these sites.
