Summary: The Koss CS100 is an inexpensive computer headset designed for use with speech recognition software, Skype, gaming, etc., and they also happen to work great with my IC-7200. I've had unsolicited compliments from folks that didn't have a clue that I was using a $15 headset.
Excerpt: I use these headphones for my online teaching job. I teach almost everyday and needed a strong quality product I needed a strong, reliable, headset for my classes. I got tired of buying cheap imitations and spent more for good quality. So far this set has been great!
Excerpt: These headphones have been great. I do two or three conference calls each day so I am wearing a headset for one or two hours. I have experimented with several brands and designs looking for both performance and comfort. This design has been the best so far.
Excerpt: 20 bucks, they do everything they're supposed to. Both headphones and mic produce a loud, clear signal. The unit is adjustable for fit, helps reduce pressure on the ears. Nice long cable, sound levels are adjusted with the computer, works for me.
Summary: If you're going to be chatting/recording and want a clear microphone, this is a good choice.
Pros: - The quality of the actual microphone is very good. Used it to record some lines for a friend's project (using Audacity), and her professor was surprised at the quality and clearness. - Cord is long enough to reach from your PC without having extra length getting tangled.
Cons: - Not extremely comfortable. The ear pads aren't very cushioned and seem to sit on my ears in a weird way. Not painful or extremely uncomfortable, but it's noticeable the first few times you wear it. - Audio quality and volume are average or slightly above. Nothing to write home about.
Summary: Overall, for $13 it's a pretty good headset. It does all I ask it to, but here's a good list of pros and cons to help any potential buyer. Pros: Mic doesn't pick up any wind noise Speakers have good quality (considering the price) Adjustable set to fit anybody's head Long cord. Very long cord.
