Very Reliable and Comfortable

Nicholas S., Newegg
5 days ago
  • Summary: If you're not terribly picky about sound quality, it's a good purchase.
  • Pros: I've had these headphones since 2010 and, despite tripping over the cord more often than I'd like, they still work like new. The cloth padding on the ear cans and headband is thick and soft enough to be comfortable for hours. The cord is still solidly seated where it connects with the left can as well. I'm no audiophile, so all I can say about the sound quality is that it's better than any cheap/free in-ear buds.
  • Cons: My only complaints are pretty minor: That dang cord can get tangled in feet and chair wheels. The name is also pretty obnoxious.

Easy To Use, Reliable, Good Sound Quality

Armando A., Newegg
6 days ago
  • Summary: I purchased the headset at 50% off, so for $24.00 (free shipping) it was a good buy. If you're looking into other headsets for $50.00, and this one is not on sale, you may want to try your luck elsewhere.
  • Pros: Easy Plug n' Play installation. Reliable,sturdy, and relatively comfortable (I have an XL size head, and my ears are not small);
  • Cons: The microphone doesn't pick-up voice easily: If speaking into the microphone as you would to somebody in the same room, one must increase go into the PC's Control Panel, and increase the "microphone", and "boost" levels a little. Although the headset and ear pads are "relatively" comfortable, if one has an XL head, and larger than average ears, the device will have to be stretched out once in a while; once that's done, the fit is decent. *CAUTION* - Take care in stret...

Perfect

Noemi L., Newegg

  • Summary: I have a small head, maybe it is good for small ones and not big ones? I saw other people saying the headset did hurt their heads.
  • Pros: LOVE the bass, the fact I have a plug for the headphone and one for the microphone, very comfortable, does not hurt my ears or head (even after 6hours straight).
  • Cons: None so far!

Great Value Headset

Christopher S., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Pros: The sound is great for me. I'm not picky though. Mic works great and is detachable. Comfortable. On off switch for mic is nice. I don't play any games where the sound is super important any more so this was a perfect buy.
  • Cons: None

Ok for the price

Douglas A., Newegg

  • Summary: The ear cups began to separate from the head arch within 2 weeks of first use. They can be forced back on easily enough but eventually the plastic wears out from the repeated action. Then you will be left with headphones hanging by only the driver wires, then those too will fail from the stress. Tape can only do so much. The Mute/On/Off selector failed about 4 months after first use and this is the end.
  • Pros: Price Comfort Style
  • Cons: Mediocre sound (expected at this price point but worse than it should be) Very bad quality adjustment mechanism design.

Great Sound

Randy E., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: The ear muffs could be just a little bigger for those who have extra large ears.
  • Pros: They are above average quality for the price.. Great sound. Light and and comfortable. At times I've worn them for 8hrs without any problem. This is the second set of these I have purchased. I broke one side of the other set by rolling a office chair over them one day. I glued them back together and used them for another year or two before deciding I wanted a new pair. They took a lot of abuse and still work. Never any issue with static or wires losing connection insi...
