Summary: I got a few months out of this product, then it started to disintegrate. Volume is very low and the sound quality is not well balanced. It was cheap and I guess it has its place as an emergency piece. For regular use it's useless.
Summary: I wasn't expecting much from this headset since it is only £10, but the quality of the microphone is probably worse than one you can pick up for £1. The quality of the headphones are okay, but probably just a bit better than a £1 headset.
Same problem as others; good quality before loss of sound
23 July 2012
Summary: I've had the same problem as others commenting about this product; shortly after first usage (two or three weeks, if that), the right earphone stopped working. I'd suggest that this product, while cheap, is not a viable one for long-term usage, and that your money would be better spent on something more durable. That said, the sound quality was reasonable while it was there. The microphone is fairly good value, although there is significant background noise.
Summary: I bought this on behalf of my son to allow him to communicate while playing Battlefield 3. It was great value and, though I've not used it myself, I can report that he declares it "awesome". Update: After little more than a month of use the microphone has stopped working causing me to downgrade my rating.
Summary: In the past 6 months I've had 2 of these items, and both have eventually developed the same fault; one or both of the earphones stopped working. With the first set I had the left earphone stopped after 6 weeks or so, with the right following a couple of weeks later. The second lasted just over 4 months, with the right earphone being the culprit this time.
Summary: Hey, Wie im Titel schon geschrieben ist das Headset gleich mit defektem Mikrofon gekommen dennoch gibs 2 Sterne den der Sound den ich hab ist sehr gut und die Lieferung ging sehr schnell zu dem Preis eigentlich ein fast optimales headset wenn das Mikro funktioieren würde
