Weak plastic.... Fragile.

  • Summary: By E. Ferrer I do not have any complaint with sound quality. Just the durability. I have owned this product for 9 months. Both earphones broke off from head attachment. Now the ear phones are glues in on the head band... and it still works.

Microphone was not loud enough

  • Summary: By divine4321 "biggerbetterbrains" I use this for skype calls and other voice conferencing. Even after checking all the settings, I would have yell into this mic for anyone to be able to hear me. If the mic had worked properly, I would have liked it much more.

Good choice for Skype or gamers

Creative
11 April 2013
  • Summary: By W. Cornett I bought this headset for use on Skype as a replacement for a Logitech 350 headset that had been accidently over driven, causing damage. At least I think that's what happened as I don't remember them always sounding distorted. The Creative HS-720 has clear transmission coming and going. Voices are very intelligible and while it's not ideal for music it could be used for that.

Works with my Mac Laptop!

Creative
8 April 2013
  • Summary: By Heather Miller After purchasing 2 headsets for my laptop, neither of which worked, I found out that Mac laptops are designed to work with headset/mics that use a single jack, not a dual jack even though there is a 'headset' and a 'mic' jack. Evidently the 'mic' jack is to be used with recording equipment that has it's own source of power. After searching for a headset that had decent reviews by gamers, I settled on this one.

  • Summary: By Charles Durfee "Casting his eerie glow upon the masses" I bought these headphones for Google+ hangouts and they work like a charm. Sound quality is good, I recommend them.

Sound quality is much better than I expected for the money.

28 March 2013
  • Summary: By Karin G. Reynolds "watchrider" I read customer reviews on quite a few headsets on Amazon and 2 other sites. These were rated consistently better than others of comparable and some higher priced models. For the money, the sound is really nice. These replaced my Logitech headphones (I caught the cord in the desk door, it cut the wire partially through and I only had sound to my right ear).

Microphone was terrible

Creative
11 March 2013
  • Summary: By GoldDove I needed these for a VOIP system for work. I work at home. The sound coming from the ear phones was great, but the microphone hardly worked at all. The setup test that helps you set the volume barely registered that I was speaking, and when I setup voice mail, my greeting wasn't audible. After spending half a day with my co-workers yelling, "What?" I had to return them. They were also too soundproof for my purposes.

World of Warcraft needs this

6 March 2013
  • Summary: By Craig S Davidson Got this as Xmas gift for son. He loves it. Had other, more pricey alternatives (recommended by his fellow fanboys). This one beats them all head to head. Packaged well, shipped quickly. I'm thinking about getting one myself since Heart of the Swarm comes out this week....

  • Summary: By Scott D. Payne this product is amazing I developed MS IE: multiple sclerosis which affected my eyes and my coordination so hitting the keys reliably was a gamble so I purchased this product because I had a boom mic it works great with Dragon natural speaking which is what I use instead of hitting the keys the mic picks up the smallest amount of sound from you and noise canceling is phenomenal figure before people talking in a room doesn't pick up any of them but picks...
