Too quiet Microphone

Brooks W., Newegg
2 March 2015
  • Summary: I ended up buying this product to replace my cheap microphone I had from before. Reading the reviews on this product I decided to give it a try. I also decided to buy a new sound card as well, to hopefully get around a humming issue I had with my previous mic. Well, these arrived and I was very excited. The headphones themselves sit very nicely, and had plenty of padding to fit around my larger head with no pinching. The microphone itself was a plug-in into the headset.
  • Pros: It sounds great Comfortably sits upon head Quick and painless install Found drivers online quickly
  • Cons: Microphone is VERY quiet No drivers with product, not a huge issue

  • Pros: Good sound. Cheap. Sturdy. Nice colors
  • Cons: Way too tight. Very painful strong pressure around ears. Couldn't wear for more than 5 minutes without feeling like my ear area was going to start bleeding.

What the picture doesnt show you

Anonymous, Newegg
6 February 2015
  • Summary: $22 Better off to buy a better quality headset that lasts a little longer.
  • Pros: $22 Mic worked fine BUTTTTTT Read below. Btw I owned 3 of these
  • Cons: They don't show you in the picture something for a good reason. If they did you wouldent buy such a flimsy piece of Garbage. Where the cord connects to the headset is about as thick as a tooth pick... Asking to be ripped torn broken or worn. Mine go bad about every 4 months and i'm gentle with them always hang them up...

Disposable

Michael M., Newegg
22 January 2015
  • Pros: Cheap. They are comfortable and work pretty well. For the current price they aren't bad. If they last a year, you've gotten your money's worth.
  • Cons: They may not last a year. We are on our third pair, in all cases the very very cheap thin cable to the headphones has broken in some manner.

User Review

TsukiNick, head-fi.org
3 January 2015
  • Summary: So I got these real cheap, I thought what the heck for $15 I can't go wrong.....I was wrong.  Well they are listenable, I hardly call them a gaming headphone besides the mic built in, explosions were pretty fun in Battlefield.  I didn't have a good mic at the time so it was a godsend to have one to talk to my friends on teamspeak, mic quality is just okay even with a soundcard.
  • Pros: Cheap, removeable mic, decently comfortable
  • Cons: cheaply made, bad imaging, overly bassy

Ok for the price

Douglas A., Newegg
4 December 2014
  • 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.

Ouch

Harmon L., Newegg
25 November 2014
  • Summary: If you have a somewhat large hat size, don't think about getting these.
  • Pros: The sound and mic are decent. Durability seems decent
  • Cons: They are too small. Ear cups are too small and get uncomfortable fast. The top band mashes into the top of my head and hurts. The ear cups grip my head too tight and don't breath. A marathon gaming session for a few days resulted in swimmers ear. That meant a trip to the Dr and day of missed work.

Decent quality, when it works

daniel g., Newegg
23 November 2014
  • Pros: Sound is good quality for a $30 headset, and mic is too.
  • Cons: When I first plugged it into my front audio port (headphone cable only) it worked fine, except that every 5 minutes or so, the audio goes out for like 2 seconds. When this happens, certain programs like windows media player stop working, and a few games lose audio until i restart it. When the mic is plugged in and on, the audio cuts out like every 1 sec for about 2 seconds, and mic doesnt work. Now, when plugged into the rear audio ports, everything works fine. and i ...

Poor Quality, Avoid

Rod S., Newegg
13 November 2014
  • Summary: I had so many problems with this headset, and despite thinking of replacing them before they broke I didn't, but it only took about 10 weeks before the mic stopped working completely. I would have been very upset if I paid full price for them, but luckily I didn't. I'd recommend looking into Seinhesser which is what I used to replace these and I was totally shocked at the quality of their headphones for what I paid for them, zero complaints.
  • Pros: -Light
  • Cons: -Bad quality. The sides of the headphones were constantly rattling every time I turned my head slightly. -Wires were shorter than others I have used. -Sound quality is somewhat worse than similarly priced headphones. -Mic output isn't as nice as equally priced or slightly higher priced headphones.

Fatality Headset

Aaron A., Newegg
17 October 2014
  • Summary: I regret buying it for the price I did which was still on sale at $50. Based on the reviews I was hoping for mic I could use for a long time and be happy with but the sensitivity is killing it for me.
  • Pros: Durability is the mics strongest benefit I've been using daily, for extended periods, for at least over 5 months now.
  • Cons: My mic is quiet both hearing through the speakers and talking through the mic. The mic is also probably the worst headset I have ever had for picking up sound and this is the first headset I have spent over $30 on. It cuts out constantly, even with extremely low sensitivity settings for voice activation. It gets most of its use in Ventrilo but I have never had problems with the client before with any of my other mics. The headphones are enclosed earphones that are ter...
