Summary: I post a 5 star as I think this product delivers some quality sound. It looks well made and is rather cheap. I don't want to invest too much in headphones as I am not using them everyday, this one does the job for skype calls. I had problems with two pairs of this kind, but I still think it was just bad luck. I haven't yet experienced any flaws with this pair, which is good. They are cheap, and quality is good. But if you are looking for more pro, invest more money.
Surprisingly good audio quality, all round value product

Summary: I bought this product as a cheap headset to use for a webinar and general video game chat. However the audio quality was good enough for general use with videos, games and music. Highly recommend this product if you need a headset.
Summary: I bought this pair of headphones to skype. They are cheap but I cannot say that they are very sturdy; as soon as I received them I could feel that the plastic parts are not very durable. Of course you shouldn't expect much more from a pair of headphones that cost ~10 pounds. i am travelling a lot and I tend to put quite a few thinks in my laptop backpack. After a bit more than a year the headphones broke.
Summary: I've got other Microsoft Headset's which are USB, so I was expecting this one to be USB as well, but it isn't. Initially I was disappointed with this as I was thinking about using them on some other devices I have that only have USB or have just headphone output (so no microphone input). The headset uses two plugs, one for a microphone socket and one for the headphone socket.
