They don't last

Anonymous, Newegg
22 March 2015
  • Summary: While not the best sounding headset, it's also not the most expensive. The mic was clear on both of the pairs I owned. I would really like these not to fail so easily. Neither set lasted a full year without needing surgery. With a quality cable, these could still sell at normal retail price.
  • Pros: Supremely comfortable on my head. I'm able to go long periods with them on without pressure headaches. Good sound for gaming.
  • Cons: The build quality of this headset is shameful. I've owned two of them and the cord has gone bad on each of them. The cord construction is so poor that just hanging from the port is enough to damage it over time. The inline volume control is the best indicator that the cord is coming apart on the ...

  • Pros: Great headset for the price, decent sound and mic quality. Very good choice if you're looking to save money
  • Cons: Microphone is kind of weird after 7 months the cable has to be at a certain angle for the microphone to work which is why I docked two eggs.

Non bias Review

  • Summary: Let me just say, I don't care about a brand name. I usually just try to get something that looks good for the price. In other words, Creative, Razer, Turtle Beach I don't care, I just want a working device.
  • Pros: Was $30 when I got it. I ordered 2 one for me and one for my girlfriend. Owned 3 all together. The mics worked great. Never had any problem there. Sound is ok. They are Comfy. For $30 they do the job Cons v
  • Cons: The wires are cheap. Flimsy. Break easily. All 3 of the headsets I won broke in the same spot. Right where the wire meets the headphones. None of them lasted more then 6 months. I have to say i'm pretty gentle on my equipment I hand my headset on a door nob everytime I get up and never pull on th...

  • Summary: -Great for the price, I wasn't expecting the mic to die but you get what you pay for I guess.
  • Pros: -Good sound -Comfortable once you get used to them -Lightweight -Works well with sound enhancements
  • Cons: -Microphone stopped working after ~14 months (issue with the headset, detachable mic still works although somewhat useless now. -Lots of plastic makes it feel cheap and noisy when tapped upon.

Cheap, effective.

Andrew B., Newegg
23 January 2015
  • Summary: If you are just using it as a gaming headset and have another for listening to music, podcasts, movies etc then it should work perfectly.
  • Pros: They are probably the best bang for the buck, as a pure gaming headset. The detachable microphone is of good quality, and has sound cancelling foam on it. The ear parts have a nice, comfortable fuzzy material covering them rather than the faux leather junk that deteriorates and gets all over ever...
  • Cons: It is cheap, and it shows. The plastic band that connects the ear parts is extremely flimsy, even just picking them up by one ear part makes it bend to the point of stressing the plastic. The volume is entirely too quiet for my tastes, even when maxed out. Not a headset to get if you are very int...

Great Headset

Shane D., Newegg
18 January 2015
  • Summary: Bought this headset probably 6 years ago at least. Spent much more than the current price but looking how far headsets in general have come this headset was very ahead of its time. I have a large head and the headphones with the velvet ears are very comfortable.
  • Pros: Comfortable. Great price to quality ratio
  • Cons: PayDay 2.......more later Software......stale.

  • Summary: if you get these be careful with them as they break easily. the sound is great though! both mic and headphones and it's a really good set for the price.
  • Pros: good sound and good mic quality for a $30 headset! cloth covers were a nice touch too.
  • Cons: cheap quality. broke after 3 months with very minimal force. other headsets have survived much worse than these and are still holding up.
