Summary: Been using for about a month or two now, haven't had any issues. The removable mic is great, especially when you just want to listen and not disturb anyone without having something right there in your face.
Summary: - AVOID THIS PRODUCT. Would not recommend this to anyone, even for free. Spend the extra money for a superior headset or independent headphones/microphone. Next time, I'll be getting plain headphones and a separate microphone, and NOT from Creative.
Pros: - Detachable Microphone
Cons: - Cheap - Using the mute switch gives an audible click through the microphone. This can be heard in recordings and VOIP. - Headphone plug has shorted out, and no longer works at all. Second pair to do so of two pairs bought in this household. I expect any other pair will do the same.
Summary: All in all, I'm happy with this purchase. This is my 1st headset with a mic. I've been a headset player for roughly 8 years now without a mic. I'd purchase this exact model again if I needed another pair in the future.. For the price and the length of the cord, it is a no brainer..
Pros: The sound is good. Bass sounds great, everything is clear. Padding for the ear is nice and soft, yet still firm at the same time. The mic can be unplugged to get out of the way when not needed. Example: when watching a show and eating. I wore these for about 10 hours straight, binge watching Netf...
Cons: The ear piece sits on top of the ear, rather than cup around the ear.. My ears seem to feel a little warm after a few hours or movie watching, but no discomformant from it. I just prefer the ear to be cupped, rather than have them resting on the ear itself. The mic is kind of weak. I had to reall...
Cons: only thing I don't like is that the audio and mic cord are too close to one another. your only option it to plug it into the front or back ports, where as I prefer to plug the audio into my speaker, but that's just me.
Pros: -looks good and fit with red light on my computer and gaming gears -confortable (I wear glasses and usually headset are not confortable to wear for a long time but so far I don't got this issue with those)
Cons: -you can detach the mic and could easely be misplace
Summary: These headphones are my first to use daily. These are only $20 or less so I don't care or expect them to last more than one year. If this set causes me to really like headphones I will buy a $70 set. These are budget introductory gaming/performance headphones.
Pros: The sound quality was decent not amazing though. The headphones are not tight on my head and can be adjusted to fit anyone. Padding is soft and I can wear them without discomfort for 10+ hours.
Cons: I am a little rough with the headphones so these problems might be from that. - The spot where you turn on and off the mic if I squeeze that section the left speaker goes out then comes back in. - The mic was very unreliable it would go from being good to terrible even putting the mic an inch awa...
