Decent Headset, Could be Better.

Autumn E., Newegg
25 March 2014
  • Summary: Would I buy this headset again? Probably not. While the sound quality is indeed good for gaming and general use, the overall quality of the headset itself, and the issues with the mics ability to pick up my voice, would stop me from buying them again.
  • Pros: Comfort. I never had an issue with this headset hurting my ears or being uncomfortable during long gaming sessions. They are relativity lightweight and well padded. Sound quality. I am no audiophile when it comes to my gaming headset, I really only expect it to produce somewhat deep bass (explosi...
  • Cons: The cons for this headset can start to overshadow the pros at the price point. The mic quality is fine, but it's VERY quiet, and short. So it does not reach in front of your mouth unless you have a small head, this would be just fine if it actually picked up your voice better. I often found mysel...

The Mic died

Dean W., Newegg
17 September 2013
  • Summary: get a different headset.. or get the 1 year warrenty if you get this one because it is great when it works.
  • Pros: well, the sound was pretty good for a headset. The Mic was great while it worked, crystal clear audio from it and next to no background noise coming through. nice long cable with sound and mic control on it.
  • Cons: At exactly 1 month of ownership my mic died. just completely stopped working. I bought this specifically for the Mic because headsets seem to be the best for me. I am quite upset about that, took it apart and everything on the mic connection looked to be fine. but.. it doesnt work. it is a little...

Fatal Flaw But Good For Price

Creative
20 July 2013
  • Summary: By WhatISayHasMerit These have a really bad flaw in them, in that the place where they're extendible to fit your head is made of a brittle plastic that easily fatigues and eventually snaps, leaving the speakers dangling and broken.

An in-depth review.

Creative
1 November 2012
  • Summary: By Ciaran *See bottom of review to see why I downgraded my review to three stars* Allow me to begin by saying that as things stand, this is a 3.5 star product. I really do love certain things about it, however there are some caveats I am finding hard to ignore.

It's good, but breaks easily.

Davin B., Newegg
21 September 2012
  • Pros: The headset has a nice sound quality, very deep and rich. They sound very good for the price they are marketed at.
  • Cons: Had the headset for about five months and they broke on me. Had got a short somehow inside the volume rocker. No clue how it happened since I was very careful with my headset. I am surprised at how easy a short got into it despite it's unique cord wiring.

Worked Great.... For a while

Brandon S., Newegg
15 August 2012
  • Pros: Worked exactly as advertised for a good price, no problems with it until it broke.
  • Cons: After a few months of use the left ear piece separated from the rest of the headset and is now dangling around next to my head. Tape and glue seem to be only short term fixes and I need to get another one after the way it broke.

Great while they lasted

Anonymous, Newegg
26 June 2012
  • Summary: If you buy these, get the earpieces where you want them and wrap the connecting strips close to the ear pieces with some electrical tape to prevent the snapping. If I had done this at the beginning I know it would have lasted alot longer and still looked good.
  • Pros: Great sound quality, clear mic operation, good price, good software.
  • Cons: After almost one year of flawless operation, the right connector to the ear piece snapped and left me with a dangling right ear piece. I now sit here typing this with electrical tape holding it together.

When they work, they work well

Lindsay E., Newegg
1 February 2012
  • Summary: I got the seemingly fairly common "static" issue after just a few months of extremely light use and no damage. Makes the headset unusable. Honestly would not buy again, there seems to just be way too many people with this issue.
  • Pros: Good sound for the price. Good Mic quality. Comfortable for extended wear (surprisingly light!)
  • Cons: Feel extremely fragile. Cord is long enough, but would be nice if it were longer.
