Excerpt: This headset is very lightweight, comfortable, clear sounding both audio and mic. Use it for music and gaming with Vent. Fits comfortably around the ears, blocks out most background noise. Can be warm since it covers the ears, but I keep the computer room cool anyway so no issues on my end. Great price and great product so far. We'll see how long they last to wear/tear.
Pros: Clear Signal, Connects Easily, Good Sound, Good Volume Control, Lightweight
Excerpt: I bought this headset for playing games like Call of Duty and Titanfall and it is perfect for that. I can hear the enemies footsteps clear as a bell and that gives me the competitive edge. The bass is excellent but the sound level is a little low. This isn't much of a problem, though. I just had to turn the volume up a little. It's very comfortable and the cups fit over my ears instead of on them which is nice and I have rather large ears.
Pros: Clear Signal, Connects Easily, Fits well in ear, Good Sound, Good Volume Control, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Noise Cancellation
Summary: Comfortable, light, decently durable so far (I've dropped it a fair number of times and it seems unfazed). If you're looking for a headset that blocks out all surrounding noise, this isn't it. The sound is clear, but if someone is talking to you (in a normal speaking voice) from within the same room, you'll hear every word (quieter, as the padding around the ears muffles outside sound, but still there).
Summary: I ordered this set after accidentally vacuuming up the cord on my Logitech headset, and I'm glad I did! This set is so much more comfortable than my previous headset, has a removable mic, and better sound quality. All in all, this headset is a total win for the price!
The microphone jack BROKE in my HAND right OUT OF THE BOX!!!
22 April 2014
Summary: I got this headphone today in the mail and the outside (amazon box was fine) the inside packaging was ripped up a bit and taped together. The headset still looked fine so I took it out of the box and plugged it in. The headphones worked great, super comfortable. The microphone on the other hand did not work. I tried doing a bunch of different things to get it to work.
Summary: These are a bit cheaply made and my second pair, but man are they good quality sound. I love this brand and I love that they aren't overpriced. I bought a pair of these about four years ago that lasted three, and then I bought a newer pair that only lasted maybe 6 months, but I blame myself for that. The earpiece attached to the cord broke off in my hand, but I was rather rough with it.
Excerpt: All around decent headphones. I do not have the ears of an audiophile, but I can say that I am happy using these for listening to podcasts and MMO games. The cushion easily goes around my ears, not on them and has a soft velvet feel. Inside opening of ear cushion = 2&2/4". Outside of ear cushion = 3&3/4". Length of cord = 7'3". Head cushion is soft and measures 3/4" thick x 5" long x 1&1/2 wide.
Pros: Comfortable For Ext Wear, Fits Well Over Ear, Good Sound, Good Volume Control, Lightweight, Mic Is Removable
