Summary: First of all, let me preface this by saying this isn't comparable to high end headsets, if you're looking for top end quality out of this headset then you might as well go out and spend a hundred dollars more. For a 20 dollar headset, this thing performs well, it has great sound, although not surround sound, it is perfectly adequate, and the sound quality on the mic is very good, definitely an upgrade if you're coming from a laptop or bluetooth mic.
Summary: this item was supposed to be delivered on the 30th of Aug... well when i woke up ( i work nights) to my suprise there was a package on the 29th of Aug on my porch... it was these headsets. anyway i opened the package and plugged them in. i turned on my favorite rock band (Rush) and jammed out. to me they sound terrific. i then made a skype call to try out the mic and it works great too and my recipient like the sound he was hearing from my mic.
Summary: For the price you pay for these headphones they are totally worth it. They arent 300 dollar headphones so dont expect that kind of quality. Mic is good, sound is clear and not static-ee or tinny. Only problem (as is with most headsets) is they crush your head on the sides and they hurt to wear after a little while. Just wear a hat underneath.
I'm sure there are more comfortable headphones out there

Summary: I'm sure there are more comfortable headphones out there, but I use it for an hour at a time and for me they are quite good. However, if I ever go over an hour I can definitely feel the pressure on my ears. Value for money is what made it a 4 star instead of 3.
Summary: I use it all the time and for what you pay you get a pretty good, comfortable pair of headphones. However, the material that comes in contact with the ear to keep it comfortable fell off for me on both sides. It was pretty annoying but I super glued them down and they have stayed on. The mic seems clean I never get complaints from others on the other end. Also the cord is very long, which is a plus.
Summary: The audio is good and I get a lot of compliments on how clear my voice is. These lose a star because oh how tight they are on your head. If you wear glasses like i do they can cause a lot of pain within an hour or so. A solution I have found is putting your glasses on after the head set so that they rest above the ears and are not squeezed by the headset. Not ideal but for 20$ I am very satisfied.
Summary: Head set is as described by the manufacturer. This seems to be a sturdy head set. It is fashioned after WWII pilots head set, nice touch for gaming. Sound is clear and range is very nice. It is working with my virtual surround set up. wore the head set for 3 hours playing last night and it was very comfortable. Cord is very well made, plugs are made into the braiding of the cord. For $17.00 you cant go wrong.
