Summary: Bought this headset probably 6 years ago at least. Spent much more than the current price but looking how far headsets in general have come this headset was very ahead of its time. I have a large head and the headphones with the velvet ears are very comfortable. Inline controls do what they are supposed to do. Why the upgrade.
Pros: Comfortable. Great price to quality ratio
Cons: PayDay 2.......more later Software......stale.
Summary: I got these on a fabulous sale so I kept that in mind when giving 5. At full price I'd probably give 3.5 - 4.0 I needed a set that was 3.5 and these fit the need great so far.
Pros: Comfort! The Padding is a velvet cloth material not sprayed on fake leather Very light weight I was worried my big head and ears would be too big for the ear cups but they all fit comfortably around my ears. Detachable Mic. 3.5 mm jack (NO USB) Price/Value
Cons: Seem Kind of flimsy but should hold up as long as you're not abusive or unlucky lol
Pros: I have been using this headset for listening only for about two years now. If it fits you, it is one of the most comfortable headsets on the market. The audio is fine and the mic quality is fine.
Cons: If you're into heavy bass or a complete audiophile, this headset may not be you. The quality is fine for the average gamer or user, but not fantastic. The mic itself is also not very adjustable.
Summary: I kept telling myself "Im not spending $1XX on some fancy headset, I just want to talk to people" and so this came into light. Although its very cheap compared to other brand name headsets, this does the job just as well as the rest.
Pros: -- Very comfortable -- Goes over the ear -- Fuzzy mouthpiece to keep static sound out
Cons: -- Plug in mic (im assuming this is for the convenience of not always having the mic in for other reasons, but that just feels flimsy to me)
Summary: For the 30 bucks I paid for these things, they have impressed me big time. I thought they would be as good as I could get for 30 bucks, but I have tried friends headsets that I hated and they were 60-100 bucks.
Pros: Sounds great, very comfortable (And I have a big head, so these fit great.), removable microphone when you don't need to talk to anyone, nice long cable,
Cons: Seems like the headband could break eventually, but I got the 3 year accidental damage warranty so I'm not too worried about it.
Pros: Comfortable fit Detachable microphone Good value (at 39.99 CAD) Newegg shipped it out very fast (ordered on a Saturday, received on Tuesday)
Cons: Surprisingly thin plastic construction, the photos here hide that. I have a big head, and I'm hoping this headset (and more specifically, the thin piece that extends the height) won't snap after repeated use over the next weeks and months.
