  • Pros: lightweight, good sound quality, doesn't block out ambient noise (I need to be able hear what's going on around me).
  • Cons: Microphone picks up breathing better then I would like.

  • Summary: I don't think anyone makes good headsets anymore, roll the dice, flip a coin, whatever. Maybe you'll get lucky.
  • Pros: Mic worked great for about two weeks.
  • Cons: Mic died after two weeks. The sound quality was like listening through a can. Sounded awful compared to my 20+ year old Sony walkman headphones.

Bad for music

  • Summary: I just ordered the same Logitech headphones that I had been using prior to these for a slightly higher price. I won't be using Genius again.
  • Pros: -Comfortable to wear, although I haven't used extensively -Low price
  • Cons: -Bad sound quality -Doesn't feel very durable... I feel like I could damage it too easily The sound quality sucks! And I am comparing this to the sound quality of $10 Logitech headsets that I had been using for the past 3 years (Logitech Clearchat Stereo Headset). The Logitech headset sounds SIGN...

  • Pros: Cheap price. I've had it for years, I think about 5 years and both ends of the audio still work
  • Cons: Bad build quality, uncomfortable(not made for big heads), the mic after positioning it too much will wear and become difficult to keep a position. Mic captures EVERYTHING

Does the Job

  • Pros: For the price, and the fact that I only use this once a week or so, I've given this product 4/5 eggs. The quality of the headset is not great, but I knew that going in. I've got nice gaming headsets, but this is for ventrilo/voice chat only. The mic quality is decent and the headphones are just "...
  • Cons: Cheap quality, but what do you expect for such a cheap price.

ok, not great

  • Summary: My head is kind of big so your comfort mileage may vary. They're not too bad for the price. I'll use them till they don't work anymore but when I rebuy I'll go for something a little better.
  • Pros: Cheap. I bought 3, mic seems to work pretty good on all three. No one on the other end ever reports difficulty hearing me. Comfortable enough to wear for a half hour.
  • Cons: I have difficulty hearing with all three. The speakers in the headphones are not very good. Also the input volume and output volume seem to share the same dial and can only be adjusted separately on your PC. Kinda makes the dial not so useful. Not comfortable enough to wear for an hour. Don't rea...

  • Summary: good deal
  • Pros: Very good price, came in clear through the mic. Useful in games and the headphone quality isnt bad. Comfortable enough to play a game for hours without it being annoying.
  • Cons: Probably my bad, but I thought microphone wasnt working at first until friend changed some settings on windows and had it working perfect. No problems since

Good quality, Low price

THAD W., Newegg

  • Summary: While Skype sound quality is perfect with my desktop there is a bit of a noticeable feedback hum in the mic on my laptop. Headphones sound great on laptop though. Don't know where the mic hum is coming from as yet.
  • Pros: Great quality for the price. Wanted a headset for Skype. Works great with my desktop, excellent sound quality on both mic and headphones. Very light and very comfortable but on the delicate side. So you have to take care when using it. Cord is 6' long and has an online volume and mute control. 6'...
  • Cons: None.
