Summary: When the mic gain was set to anything approaching audible, it had serious static. When I managed to fix that by messing with the mic settings, there was still more bugs: the directionality/noise cancelling was terrible (could pick up my roommate from across the room when it was set to normal levels...
Pros: FIts me better than my old G930 (which had tons of issues) even with my massive ears, cable is nice and long, mesh covers are comfier than pleather in warmer weather.
Summary: The headset itself is very light compared to other circumaural headsets I've tried. Their really comfortable and the quality is not bad for the price. I've been using mine for a couple of weeks now at my office to listen to music and take calls from my ip phone and haven't had any issues wearing...
Pros: light weight surround is pretty good comfortable ear cups washable in-lin volume and mute controls
Cons: mic not detachable no in-line play/pause or answer/hangup
Summary: If you are willing to baby these and only remove them by the head band portion they might last a year, but I would still advise you to seek a headset elsewhere.
Pros: Sound is good mike is flexible
Cons: I purchased this headset on 8/10/2014 it failed on 5/10/2015 The part of the headset that holds the earphones started to crack about two months before they failed, I wrapped them tightly in electrical taoe to try and keep them together the cracking was caused by putting the headset on and off. Po...
Summary: This headset requires a decent audio output device and a decent DAC (as well as high quality audio source). Sure, a phone or MP3 player is compatible in stereo. Sure a standard 3.5mm audio output from a laptop or PC would work, but you'd be loosing some sound quality by not using the USB adapter.
Pros: Great sound. Long (excessively) cable. Separate mic and headphone cord. Volume and mute button on clip. Looks nice. Fits my tiny head. Sounds great for music, even better than my $100 "studio" headset.
Cons: Must use the USB adapter or similar adapter to achieve full potential. I can't tell where the individual audio channels are except when I know the specific sounds corresponding to each channel.
Summary: I have had this headset for over a year and have dropped it many times, I have driven over the cord many times and still this thing works like it was fresh out of the box. There are maybe 3 barely visible scratches. If you are looking for a headset for casual/gaming purposes this one is a 10/10 buy.
Pros: - Comfortable - Resilient - Sound quality is awesome - Microphone quality is excelent
Summary: I bought this headset, because My Krakens broke. The cord wrapped around my leg and while I chased after my cat I ripped it from the USB port and the USB part of the cord ripped out, smart right? Not only that, but my car chewed on the mic part, so it was cutting in and out at times over skype.
Pros: - Comfortable when you adjust it to the right spot to your head. The Kraken was....sorta comfortable, but after 3-4 hours it would start to hurt the top of your head, but this can be solemnly based on your overall head anatomy. - Blue colored (Just a Pro because it matches my Desktop hardware! :D...
Cons: - Feels a little cheap, whereas the Kraken is much more sturdier in both bulk and shape. For that I'm gonna have to knock the egg. Quality is very important otherwise you're always going to be going through headsets - The products boxing isn't as eye appealing as the Krakens, I've never been so i...
Cons: The plastic arm on the side of one of the ear cuffs broke in 2 places with only the pressure of me holding them. So it's rather a poor design, or cheap materials holding it together. Now I got a piece of it rattling around in the right ear, and held together by duct tape for the time being. I've ...
Summary: not really sure what to think about the Logitech gaming software that goes with this. All of my Logitech products in the past never lasted more than 8 months. I am taking super good care of this one to try to make it last.
Pros: I wear glasses and still doesn't hurt my ears. Quality microphone. Best for it's price range.
Cons: It hurts the top of the head after a while but after that long it's time for a short break anyway
Summary: I owned the G930 prior to this headset and it stands up in all aspects minus the cordless benefits of the G930.
Pros: - Great sound quality - Good design (both visually and functionally) - Made by Logitech - best when used without USB adapter (this is a pro for me because my keyboard provides quicker access to the jacks than the fron of my PC)
Cons: The USB adapter is ok at best. it will cause your voice to play through the headset at a slight lag and can make you stumble on your words. this could be a pro for some but for me its the only reason this looses an egg.
