Pros: Comfortable and nice looking
Cons: The plastic part connecting the ear piece and headband broke after a week, poor construction. The USB stopped working a couple days after using it for the first time. Only the standard audio jack worked after so I can never take advantage of the advanced audio options available in USB mode. Sound quality Meh.
Summary: Id already been pricing other headphones just cause i heard a friends "audio-technica" ones so. i may still go ahead and buy it but that's completely unrelated in a way seeing as how i would have even if these were 5 stars. Your sound taste are your own.
Pros: I want to than creative support for support for sending them out so fast.
Cons: The old ones had a "manufacturing problem due to plastics casting." Once one of these problems is found shouldnt they all have to go back. I feel the same way with motherboard revisions SHIP them back dont wait for RMA.
Summary: Using electrical tape to hold them together on both sides... Not worth RMA. i got these on sale for 79 dollars as they do every 4 or 5 weeks. They sound the part of 79 dollar headphones but have the build quality (in some places) of a 19 dollar headset.
Summary: I ike the headset its a 4 out of 4 because there is no 3.5 And its about 3.7 you round that off to 4 right? And lets not forget a WHOLE star is dedicated to the 129-79 dollars price drop every other 4 weeks on newegg. I feel sorry for the people who couldn't wait. Just be ware of all the cons above and you got a good headset.
Pros: * Was 79 Dollars when i got it because its worth just that, Do not buy this item off sale at 129 89 or 95.
Cons: * This is not the build quality of the highest in the EVO series the ZXR. If you saw someones ZXR and thought ill buy the cheaper on they are not the equal by a long shot. They use half the ear cushion depth Slightly smaller cups (that may not fit most big ears.
Summary: By Kaze Well, I got the head phones and rather enjoyed them for a few days. Then, as I was cleaning my house, my dog took off on me and the head phones came off my head, hit grass, and broke. Not recommended if you're even remotely active.
Summary: Keep in mind these are NOT the Z series but don't allow it to discourage the purchase of these beauties. They sound almost as good and are GREAT gaming headsets. I would be hard pressed to get them at $120 but ultimately at $120 it's a even exchange IMO. So holding out for a sale for that sense of value is ideal but if you have the extra scratch and your not a sale hunter like I am, it's not a waste of money in any sense.
Pros: The construction is sturdy, I love the steel headband. The cushions on the ears are big enough to compass your entire ear but I having a bit bigger ears, they feels perfectly fine. No pinches to where my ears needed a break. The look of them are way nicer than the promotional pictures. I love how they fold away. The sound is nice. The bass is rich without being distorting, mid come in nice and clear and highs with virtually no tin. The mic sounds clear and LOVE that i...
Cons: I always wonder why they don't just incorporate software support options with the built in windows preference pane but that's a matter of personal preference and did find the top end of volume of the headset be significantly higher after installing drivers so make sure you do the same. Also the price point is a BIT too high for my taste. I bought these on sale and at 89.99 it was a sweet spot.
Summary: I first saw this product on Newegg's channel with Mike Ross endorsing it in an interview with him and a guy from Sound Blaster. Sorry I didn't remember his name, but I've been a hardcore player of fighting games since Street Fighter II Champion Edition was in the arcades, so I've seen a few tournaments and had to click when I saw Mike Ross. He did not lie about this headset's awesomeness.
Pros: I was lucky enough to catch it on Christmas Day when it was $50 off.
Cons: This is really only a minor con, but occasionally in my recording with the microphone (this only happens rarely), it goes into the Deep Voice Crystal Voice setting on its own for a moment, then returns to normal. I don't really mind at all though, and it's a small price to pay for such a great headset.
Summary: I bought this headset while it was on sale for $80 and boy was that a huge mistake. After wearing it for a couple of hours, my ears hurt so bad that I decides to return it the next day. That's how bad it was. If you want a good gaming headset, skip this one and get a different one. Trust me on this one.
Summary: By echofoxtrot First I'd like to say I am a MAJOR audiophile. Major meaning I don't even listen to music (as much as I want to) unless it sounds like crystal and deep but mature bass. Secondly I rate based off things I enjoy and prefer. So my rating of 5 stars for these might be too high for another "audiophile". 1. These are very comfortable to me, yet they aren't as comfortable to my girlfriend. Everyone has a different comfort level for certain things.
