Summary: I bought this for my HF rig. The Microphone is a ELECTRET and needs a supply voltage for operation. It works great with my 746pro Xcvr. The reason for Good instead of Great is that the headphones squeeze my head. I will see if there is an adjustment [bending ?]. I get great audio reports using the TX EQ suggested by Heil.
Summary: They're pretty nice, I guess. I use them in my university German lab. I mean, I didn't get much chance to test them, but they sure make people shouting things I don't understand sound nice. They also seem like they've been around for forever, so I guess they're probably pretty durable.
Summary: The SB-45 headset provides solid performance for the price. You CAN pay more, but you won't get better value for the money you spend. Earphone receivers are clear, and full range. Microphone is HOT and clean, you may want to reduce your input volume to avoid over-modulation, but properly set the mic works well and is clean and clear. Durable build quality - not the strongest available, but should last a long time with reasonable care.
Summary: I am so glad I got these head phones for my husband for Christmas. People can hear him now when He plays WOW. I don't have to listen when my kids play their games. and while I'm playing POGO I can listen to my music without waking anyone. Good for gaming or just listening a great buy with a lifetime gaurantee. The only thing that is nusance is that it is not wireless 8 ft cord so be careful and put away when not in use.
Summary: I got this for my boyfriend because his old ones were broken. He uses it everyday and seems to love them. I haven't heard any complaints....just a bunch of yelling about what's going on in Call of Duty. Haha.
