Pros: Cheap, makes noise through the speakers, usually picks up your voice on the microphone.
Cons: You have to make out with the mic in order to speak at a normal level. I really dont like the velvet ear cushion things; they pick up all kinds of lint and feel gross if your ears get hot. I don't feel like it needed an in-cord volume control. Just made it to where I had a THIRD place to check wh...
Summary: Overall it's a very good mic considering I only paid 28 dollars for it. The long wire is annoying but I can understand that other users might need the long wire.
Pros: Bought them for a cheap price (27.99). Have soft padding on top and is very comfortable. Fits my big head. Mic quality is average. Sound is average.
Cons: Very long wire. This might be good for other people but it just gets in the way for me. I trip over it and roll over it all the time with my chair. Exterior mad of plastic, but so far has been pretty sturdy. As said in the pros, the mic and sound is average, but that is good enough for the price ...
Summary: Overall a great headset that I would recommend to anyone that needs one. If your a Mac user get the iLov adapter with it or the Microphone will not work.
Pros: Great Sound: Great feel: Reliable: Easy to remove microphone when you don't need it: Volume control on cable: Good long length of cable.
Cons: Does not work on a Mac with out a Pre-Amp adapter like iLov so it can pull the power from the USB port, then it works great: Hidden Microphone switch that was set to off, so at first I thought it was dead:
Summary: It has a mic, the comfort is good enough, and the price makes it easy enough to try out without being to bummed if it disappoints. After hearing how quiet this headset was and feeling the comfort levels I think I would've opted to go into 1 of 2 directions.
Pros: Relatively comfortable, can be worn for extended periods of time Friends report hearing me clearly so the mic does its job
Cons: The headphones themselves are really quiet even with volume maxed out Sound is mediocre. I've got 8 dollar Panasonic EARBUDS off ama zon that have a fuller richer sound then this OVER THE EAR headset Just relatively comfortable, basically, they are more comfortable then any other headset I've use...
