What a piece of C***!

Summary: I really looked forward to receiving my new headset from Creative. Amazon, as usual, did a great job shipping wise. When the headset arrived, I set to work plugging in in. Took awhile, (a couple of hours) to get the speakers to work. The speakers are fantastic! However, getting the mic to work was an ordeal in it's own right. I spent maybe close to four hours trying to configure the mic to my computer.
Summary: I have had 3 of Creative Fat1al1ty head phones in the past 5 years (between work and home) and this one was the cheapest yet. The headphones work fine, but this broke in under a week of ownership. Luckily I have gorilla glue and I think it will hold, but I shouldn't have to glue it together. I also miss the soft plether cushion rather then the felt cushion.
Summary: This headset is made quite cheaply, I bumped it lightly and the right earphone snapped right off, I tried gluing and epoxying it back together, but every time I attempted a repair it would come apart again. disappointed.
The microphone jack BROKE in my HAND right OUT OF THE BOX!!!

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: I have the HS-1000 and they have been nice, after years of use the right side only works some times. This appeared to be the same model. So I ordered one. The product listed is for the USB model HS-1000, the product I received is the HS-800 with 1/8 inch plugs. It was shipped from staples, I thought this was odd. Until I hear back from the seller I cannot tell if this was just a mistake or fraud. I would not recommend this item at this time, since it may jus be a scam.
Summary: Worked great for a few weeks, not even after a month of having it I started to hear static in the left ear, then the mic started to not pick up my voice anymore. Whenever I listened to my mics playback all I'd hear is crazy loud noise that sounds like a demonic ritual, every headset I buy is cursed.
Summary: I was very excited to buy this after just using a webcam and earbuds as a headset, the first time I ordered it, within about 2 hours of using it, the mic completely stopped working. About 2 hours after that, the actual sound just completely stopped working, no slowing fading, it just stopped. Very disappointed, I got it replaced, hoping it was just a defect, I very quickly got a replacement.
