Summary: As a long time owner, I would rate this product higher except the thin covering around the ear pieces started to rip from use. Once it is ripped, the covering starts to shed like a very bad sunburn and you'll either go crazy trying to peel the whole thing off or just end up buying new headphones. The amount of use would determine how quickly or slowly you would encounter this issue. Other than this issue, the headphones have served me well and still function.
Summary: I've owned one of these babies for close to 6 months. Here are the pro's and con's from my own point of view. Pros: excellent sound quality, reinforced cords, USB connection, raise mic boom to mute, very good microphone quality with flexible boom, very handy keys featured into the left ear cup, adjustable headband and padding, comfortable ear cups that mutes out other sounds.
Pros: It's an awesome headset, don't get me wrong. The sound is awesome and the cord is super long so if I get up I don't have to worry about it falling off my head. I can wear these headsets for hours and not have to worry about my ears hurting. Plus, the cup goes all the way around the ear.
Cons: The headset is cheaply made. Mine broke after a year of use. There's a tiny plastic piece that connects the headband to the actual speaker and it's so so flimsy. Mine snapped just by taking it off so now it's being shipped back to have it replaced. Another thing that got quite annoying was that the mic never stayed up. After about a month of use the mic would just fall down all of the time. I had to take a hair band and wrap it around the mic so it would stay up.
Summary: Im usualy rough on sets and they suffer in their weakest link around the inline volume control. This one has surpassed the typical usage i would get from the 30-40 dollar range. I love the long reinforced cord, as well the sound that come from it. cheaper would always be better. *** UPDATE *** lost sound one ear piece on mono, no big deal because i like the surround.
Summary: The headset is alright, how ever they don't go very loud and bass on it is good at all. However the microphone is pretty good, it's not worth the money. If the sound quality was better and support bass more I'd be happy to give it a 5.
Summary: Pros: Voice is clear and has the option to mix and alter your voice with software Cons: I have noticed there will be a static sound or low noise at random times It comes and goes like the wind. Its hard to explain but can be annoying at times Buttons on headset do not seem to work with winamp but work with windows media player.
