The best budget headset I've ever owned.

Summary: I mentioned earlier that my old pair finally died; I should count my lucky stars that the headset lasted as long as it did (most headsets won't make it past 1 year), but the reason my first pair died annoyed me a bit. For some reason the wire right under the control switch box had bent so much that it eventually split and exposed the inner wiring.
Pros: I just got a new pair of these in the mail a few hours ago. My old one died. That sounds like a con, but it took them somewhere around 4-5 years to kick the bucket. These things have a huge life span if you treat them right. Sound quality is really good for the price, and unlike many other headphones these ones go around your ears so you don't get that "head in a vice" feeling like you do with a lot of other cheap headsets. Microphone can be removed completely if you ...
Cons: None really. You can't complain when a pair lasts for almost 5 years, but I will say something in the Other Thoughts regarding this.
Summary: Short and to the point, they are cheap, great sound, and good quality. I've dropped and yanked this headset and it still looks great and works even better. All the reviews of it being garbage quality I feel like they are either purposefully destroying their products or lying, because I've had mine for a year now and they still look new minus animal hair getting on the earmuffs because they are velvet.
Pros: Sound quality is pretty great. They are comfortable as well even with glasses on. The opposite of some of the reviews I'm seeing about the set being to tight The cord is pretty long, however it never tends to be a problem or get in the way. In fact the long cord is somewhat of a Pro. You can almost go anywhere in a smaller room without having to take them off.
Cons: Honestly I cannot think of many cons, if any at all. If you are in need of an inexpensive pair of headphones with great sound quality these are your headphones. The only thing I can think of is if you are hot-natured, they may make your ears warm.
Summary: $22 Better off to buy a better quality headset that lasts a little longer.
Pros: $22 Mic worked fine BUTTTTTT Read below. Btw I owned 3 of these
Cons: They don't show you in the picture something for a good reason. If they did you wouldent buy such a flimsy piece of Garbage. Where the cord connects to the headset is about as thick as a tooth pick... Asking to be ripped torn broken or worn. Mine go bad about every 4 months and i'm gentle with them always hang them up...
Summary: Let me just say, I don't care about a brand name. I usually just try to get something that looks good for the price. In other words, Creative, Razer, Turtle Beach I don't care, I just want a working device.
Pros: Was $30 when I got it. I ordered 2 one for me and one for my girlfriend. Owned 3 all together. The mics worked great. Never had any problem there. Sound is ok. They are Comfy. For $30 they do the job Cons v
Cons: The wires are cheap. Flimsy. Break easily. All 3 of the headsets I won broke in the same spot. Right where the wire meets the headphones. None of them lasted more then 6 months. I have to say i'm pretty gentle on my equipment I hand my headset on a door nob everytime I get up and never pull on the cord. Still went bad in the same spot on all 3. Have to say Its like they want it to break so that you have to buy another one in 4 months. Where the cord attaches to the he...
