User Review

Luke G., Newegg
26 February 2015
  • Summary: I've dismantled and increased the sound quality with higher quality soldering and a few minor wiring adjustments however the mic can not be saved, so I'm stuck with an overpriced pair of headphones.
  • Pros: Feels nice, the casing is well built, has good sound and bass.
  • Cons: A lot...While it's good for sound quality it is not worth the $70 I paid while it was on sale, The mic started acting up the day after the warranty, and I was never able to get ahold of the company itself. once opened up however The craftsmanship is subpar, the wiring is low quality and jumbled.

  • Summary: Would be a great microphone if it wasn't usb and it actually worked 100% of the time instead of randomly cutting out.
  • Pros: Decently priced, fold up to mute mic is nice, adjustable sound. Pretty comfortable
  • Cons: Randomly stops working for me at times. Can't figure out why it will just stop working and i have to replug it in. The volume wheel gets bumped a lot. USB plug in

Great for the money

Robert B., Newegg

  • Summary: Great headset for the money, feels sturdy and the volume on the ear is way nicer than having to fish for a toggle on the cord.
  • Pros: -Covers the ears -Comfortable -Vibration feature is nice -Sound is great -Mic works well.
  • Cons: I thought the flippable mic would have more 'flip' to it, as if it were on a spring, alas! You have to move it all the way up manually but nothing worth docking an egg for.

  • Summary: The design is sleek, and the headset comfortable, but after a couple hours of use, I went right back to my failing Tritton. The feedback on the microphone was somewhat terrible. Loud sounds and music carried right through.
  • Pros: Comfortable Easy to set up Fairly cheap
  • Cons: Mic feels cheap Lots of feedback Sound quality could be MUCH better for v7.1 surround USB means no nice sound cards

  • Summary: Want durable quality? Buy these!
  • Pros: Finally a quality head set with a DURABLE design! I have had so many other more expensive head sets break due to poor design & material where the ear cuff mounts to the tension band. These are great and work beautifully. My friends and family all now use these for pc gaming, TS, Vent, & Mumble.
  • Cons: None thus far

Great but 1 problem

zach b., Newegg
15 February 2013
  • Pros: Everything one could ask for in a good set of headphones. I havent tried mic full potential but everything else has passed my test. I give five stars assuming mic is decent.
  • Cons: The title said 3.5mm. THESE ARE DIGITAL USB. I did not want USB but I'm still extremely happy with them.

USB and preprietary drivers the only draw back

Philip S., Newegg
10 February 2013
  • Summary: Still greaT FOR THE TWO DIGIT PRICE!
  • Pros: Circumaural 7.1 lives up to its name. Dubstep music resonates beautifully with the vibration function. Comfortable, even when lying on them sideways.
  • Cons: The drivers package allows the set to integrate smoothly with music and movies, but mic input apps will not find the headset's uni-directional gaming mic. No voice overs for my Studio vs. 14 creations, the digital authoring software apps still haven't found this mic.

  • Summary: They were dispatched on the same day I ordered them and arrived 2 days later! Took me no time to install any drivers - I didn't need to use the CD provided, just plugged them in and Windows found the driver for me :) The vibration function is excellent as is the sound quality.

Uncorfortable, i would say its 2.1 rather than 7.1. Not supported by linux

lp, Amazon
10 April 2013
  • Summary: Have tested this item for a few days and would say that these are worth £10 and not £40. Cheap looking, very bad sound (mine stereo sony or philips sounds better), uncomfortable for ears, poor ventilation, bad ergonomics.

Cavamanius Gaming Headset

Ahmad, Amazon
9 April 2013
  • Summary: + Very comfortable. + Very high quality sound. + Very useful sound tuner. - The small cd does not go into my drive. - If it had a 3.5mm headphone jack also that would be perfect. - (EDIT) After 2 years use the volume adjustment scroll is finicky.
