Summary: What can you expect for a $12 headset? They are very light and cheaply made. They worked out of the box but we'll see what they are like after six months or so. No volume control on the cord which might not be a bad thing since this seems to be one of the most common failure points on headsets as cheap as these. They seem comfortable enough. You get what you pay for so they are exactly as I expected. They will hold me over until I get money for a better pair.
Summary: I have 3 headsets and this set is my 3rd choice. Just not very comfortable for my big head. Might fit my kids more comfortably. The ears are soft enough I guess and block out noise. Being in sales I record my calls and playback for review and the sound quality in and out sounds with too high treble sound.
Summary: I Purchased this microphone for speech recognition and am now using it with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12. the accuracy is very good. The microphone failed the Dragon test for quality, but that did not seem to affect its recognition accuracy which is excellent. But be advised it is not as accurate as a higher-end microphone for noisy environments. If you want a cheap solution to good voice recognition accuracy, you will not go wrong with this microphone.
Summary: I bought these for Skyping. For the price, I am amazed at the audio quality. These sit on the ear rather than around it, and there's not a lot of padding on the earphone. However, the padding is some sort of pleathery-type stuff rather than just foam. I can imagine they'd get uncomfortable for extended use as in gaming, but for an hour or less, I have no issue with them. They seem sturdy, and the microphone arm hasn't gotten loose.
Summary: Bought this for my father to Skype with me. The mic built in to his laptop was not very good. The mic in this headset is worse. May be ok for listening. If you need a mic for talking, try another option.
Summary: I had a cheap headset before and am amazed at how nice these are. Sure it's not a $100 headset but it's much better than I expected. It does a nice job of keeping out outside noises from my side and people in game hear me well without a mechanical voice, static, or other undesirable side effects that some really cheap headsets have.
Summary: Headphone work fine but the microphone did not work the first time I tried to use it. Unfortunately it was 2 days after the return time limit had ended. My fault for not testing on arrival. Would not recommend.
