Great for the money

Pros: Decent sound quality for the money, people can hear me okay, inline volume controls aren't too fussy, and the cord is decently long enough. The mic is removable, which is nice if you primarily want to use it for music and movies and don't want the mic in your face.
Cons: Because the mic is removable, it can be easy to misplace. The outside of the connector is keyed and it can be hard to reinsert without taking off the headset. The little foam pad on the end of the mic doesn't want to stay attached. I usually find it a few days later but if I had cats I'm sure I w...
Summary: These aren't professional audio equipment, but worked quite well, the stereo was clear enough to resemble surround or positional audio. The ear pads are fabric covered; cushy enough but will be difficult to clean. The cord is relatively long and thin, has volume control and mic mute inline.
Pros: Great sound (for general use), easy to adjust, detachable microphone, attractive, lightweight, good price
Cons: Not for people with large ears, fabric covers on ear pads, won't work if your wife destroys them with a vacuum cleaner :(
Summary: I really am quite happy with this purchase. Would buy again, would recommend!
Pros: Comfortable, High quality sound. The mic is excellent and does a great job dimming the background noise and wind. The headset itself is light and comfortable. The sound is great, I think the quality is outstanding for the price.
Cons: The velvet ear pads aren't as comfortable as leather, but I think it holds up better (has so far). I will have to come back to this in a year to comment.
