Pros: If you can get them on sale they are worth that price imo. I personally didnt like the sound spectrum from the speakers for music, but it is good for gaming imo. The headset is very light making it comfortable for long periods.
Cons: 1 speaker is buzzing 12 months after purchase, I was going to try to warranty them I dont have the original packaging which has the serial # on it, and the creative customer support website is a mess imo
Summary: Bought it a few months back. It's good for blocking out noise, good sound quality, but it seems that it can't take much damage. It's taken a few short falls, and the sound's getting a little problematic. The wire has to be positioned in a certain way, or else the left ear begins to cut out or get crackly.
Summary: I bought this headset for language training but found it a bit uncomfortable and the sound quality less than what I had come to expect in a headphone. Mic worked fine. I found that I had to play with the audio jack for it to play from my Dell computer. I have not had that problem with other headphones. I returned the headset and, as is Future Shop's reputation, I received a hassle free refund. Thank you Future Shop for that.
Summary: Has all the functionality it says it does, but I don't find these terribly comfortable - after about an hour they make my ears sore, and I don't have unusually large or out-sticking ears; and my hair catches in the crack where the earphones attach to the headband, so it's always pulling hair out when I take them off (reviewing this on my partner's account; I'm a woman and have long hair).
