Good Budget Headset Mic is about lacking though

Carolyn C., Newegg

  • Pros: Great headset for the price, decent sound and mic quality. Very good choice if you're looking to save money
  • Cons: Microphone is kind of weird after 7 months the cable has to be at a certain angle for the microphone to work which is why I docked two eggs.

Greart headphones

Matthew S., Newegg

  • Summary: Great sets of headphones for the price, after testing them out I had to order 4 more for the rest of the family.
  • Pros: Great sound and fit. I have been looking for a set of headphones that feel good on the ears and head. This set feels great and they are light. The ear muffs fit great around the ears and the sounds just rocks coming out of them.
  • Cons: None so far

couldn't ask for more

Benjamin B., Newegg

  • Pros: This headset sounds great and is amazingly comfortable. They do seem to favor bass a bit and have a warm sound (not extremely sharp). However, I prefer the warm sound over something with a real crisp sound that makes everything sound harsh. I have gamed with these on for about 4 hours straight without feeling any discomfort. A few times I have gotten up only to realize I was still wearing them. Though I have never used the mic myself, I have heard sound tests done wit...
  • Cons: None that I have found.

Good bang for the buck.

Jared N., Newegg

  • Summary: Buy this set if you don't want to pay top dollar but want a set that doesn't feel like its made from the absolute cheapest plastic imaginable or if you need a headset in a hurry.
  • Pros: I've had two separate sets of this headset, and I must say the first time entry was a bit high (upwards of $60 back in early 2000's) but now that its in the ballpark of $25-$30 its an exceptional steal for the price. Pros include: -Strong, robust sound. -Powerful bass. -Detection of even subtle sound-stage nuisances. -Excellent gaming headset, has saved me countless times in CounterStrike, due to hearing a reloading magazine/footfalls. -Detachable mic is really quite ...
  • Cons: Not many cons for such a robust headset for such a cheap price. My one complaint is, that this headset can ride a little tight for those with a big melon, so please be advised.

2 and 1/2 years later.

Richard S., Newegg

  • Summary: I bought this headset on 9/10/2012 from Newegg (looked up order history). For the price and quality this headset cannot be beat!
  • Pros: This headset has lasted 2 1/2 years with zero problems. It has been jerked out of the PC, off tables and still works great!
  • Cons: There are much better sounding headsets out there at a much higher price.

So comfortable!

Christopher R., Newegg

  • Summary: Really, really good headset. If they pumped up the volume on these things, there wouldn't be any competition.
  • Pros: Really, really comfortable. Could wear these things all day. Detachable mic if it ever gets in the way and volume control that can turn on or off the mic.
  • Cons: Not loud at all! You may struggle to hear videos that have low volume, be warned!

The best budget headset I've ever owned.

Andrea W., Newegg

  • 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.

I don't understand the Negatives.

Stephen B., Newegg

  • 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.

  • Pros: Good sound. Cheap. Sturdy. Nice colors
  • Cons: Way too tight. Very painful strong pressure around ears. Couldn't wear for more than 5 minutes without feeling like my ear area was going to start bleeding.
