Pros: The price
Cons: They sound very tinny The mics ok its an improvment from my 2.99 mic. The around the ear cushioning is not a big enough diameter to go around the outside of my ears so not good if u have big ears and or are tall, i'm 6'4" with average ears. I ordered the sennhieser g4me one headset instead.
Pros: Comfortable around the ears, removable mic is handy.
Cons: The sound quality is definitely not great. I get better sound quality out of my iphone earbuds. There also seems to be a strange issue where, when my headset is muted, it will start to broadcast any sound my computer plays (i.e., windows sounds, or even music I play). The removable mic is good, a...
Pros: -Headphone quality is about what you'd expect for this price range -Earpieces are moderately comfortable -Inline volume and mic mute is helpful -Cord length
Cons: -The Microphone Microphone is simply way, way too quiet. I tried using the headset with both desktop onboard sound, internal PCI soundcard, and on a laptop. I've enabled mic volume to 100% and mic boost to even 30% depending on what sound card I was using. All drivers are up to date. Across the b...
Summary: I've owned many cheap headphones for computer use and thought they were fine. Then I put these on for the first time and was blown away by the deep, full sound. I started hearing things in games, movies and music I had never heard before.
Pros: - Great sound for the price. Deep, full bass and clear, rich mids and highs. - mic sounds very clear, is adjustable and DETACHABLE - Velvet ear cups are like a soft head hug. - nice cord length - lightweight and very comfortable for long periods of use - They don't squish your head in a vice like...
Cons: - The light weight can make them feel fragile (though I've abused these for 5 years and only now breaking down) - detachable mic can be easily lost if you're not careful - velvet ear coverings are more difficult to clean than vinyl or leather - inner covering over the speakers can rub against out...
Summary: This is not a product I will purchase again or ever recommend.
Pros: The sound is average. They fit comfortably not squishing my ears.
Cons: Cord became stiff and brittle after about 6 months, after which it broke in several places exposing the wires. Especially bad around the volume control. The sound now fades in and out depending on how the cord is bent. Very frustrating. Mic seems to pick up additional noise when simply moving my ...
Summary: Microphone piece is separate but not replaceable?
Pros: Works GREAT on my Fatal1ty MoBo and had no problems installing or using
Cons: This Microphone is too quiet. At the max volume for the headset and the max in my Control Panel sound settings, decibel level, and volume mixer is like someone talking to me from across my house. still worth the money, but take the volume into consideration
Pros: This is the best headset I have own to date. Very happy with High quality sounds coming out of this headset. Headset looks beautiful. I use it for gaming. The company warehouse delivery service is amazing. It arrived in 2-3 days.
Cons: Headset looks and feels very delicate. I am afraid of the wire longevity, it looks fragile too. Sound is kind of low. Other than this very happy with purchase.
Summary: I would buy this again, it sounds good and when I game with friends they say I sound good .... so its good enough for me.
Pros: The sound is not going to win awards but it works. I have had sets that cost hundreds that did sound better but honestly these sound pretty good. Much better than I was expecting. They are sturdy if you are not rough with them.
Cons: The little foam tip of the microphone desperately wants to escape and I am constantly hunting for it.
