Summary: Overall, especially if you game quite often, DO NOT get these, go for the WIRED version instead. The cons just make these way to much of a hassle, and really make me want to throw the entire headset across the room almost everyday of the week...buying something different soon, myself.
Pros: Sound Quality is good, they're comfortable, and the colors and voice mods are fun to play with.
Cons: -Randomly disconnects, and then reconnects 2-3seconds later -If the USB gets blown on, touched, etc...disconnection... -As others have said, the plastic is breaking along the slider -After the first month or 2, battery life is terrible.
Summary: If they had used metal instead of plastic in the headband, and had a better usb connection, these would be a nice set of headphones.
Pros: For the the first few weeks, I was in love with them. They sounded great, were relatively comfortable, customizable colors for the lights was pretty fun.
Cons: At least once an hour, they'd drop their wireless signal and re-establish it again after a couple seconds. Not a huge deal, but it was pretty annoying. Battery life isn't great, I'd estimate I'd get about 4-5 hours total before having to plug them back in to charge. The usb plug was also loose, s...
Summary: The headset for music and sounds are perfect. Decent battery that almost lives an entire day if you charge it each night. For this it gets two eggs, but since they manufactured it with such low quality materials I cannot advise anyone to purchase this.
Pros: good, deep bass, nothing actually bad about the speakers. Fits my large head reasonably well with one caveat (see cons) Pretty good battery life for what thats worth.
Cons: Software will sometimes (every other month) delete your audio settings entirely. Entirely shoddy materials used to build it. A mcdonalds toy has more points of articulation and can take more abuse. I have gone through 3 of these in the period of a month, one not even lasting an entire 24 hours. T...
Summary: The headset worked great when I first got them but now it seems like they are nothing but a headache. The biggest issue I have is the sound constantly cuts out and cuts back in and at times it will cut out and stay that way.
Pros: Decent sound Very comfortable to wear Detactable microphone is nice for when I don't need it
Cons: Short wireless battery life: I find I have them plugged in more often than wireless since the battery dies after being wireless for about 2 hours) Breaks easy: The plastic that holds the earpiece is very thin and even with superglue to repair the break, they still feel brittle. Connectivity Issue...
Summary: It lasted over a year, and while the sound was great, the overall construction was poor. Creative honored their 1 year warranty from them busting to pieces, but I was expecting sturdier construction from paying $150.00
Pros: The sound on these things are pretty nice. The cans are padded well. It has a decent deep bass sound if you pump it, and can get loud fast. It's wireless, so no more worn wires to knock out one of the cans, or the mic etc.
Cons: Cheap plastic. I have a bigger noggin, so when I'd first put them on I have to pull the legs down completely and you can hear the entire frame creak when you pull it over your head. I was really careful with them due to their cost, but even still after 6 months the right leg snapped off, then a w...
Pros: Well placed and durable on/off switch non-tangle braided charging cable Setup easy and as advertised Folding Ear Cups are nice. Can use it as a small set of speakers that way. Which is essential since switching sources is not convenient Sound is sufficient. Equal to a $50 pair of standard headpho...
Cons: Battery life is very low, making this more of a wired set of headphones that you can occasionally use as wireless for a short time You cannot use them when charging IF they need a ful charge. So if they shut off completely you are out of luck, until you switch sources, which is not easy or quick,...
Cons: Battery life its is no where near as what's advertised. You pretty much have to keep the cord plugged in 80% of the time, so not truly wireless. The overall build quality is awful feels very cheap and not worth while for what you spent.
