Can't make it do what I want

Sloananator, Staples
29 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought these headphones thinking I could listen to music and use them for Skyping, but haven't been able to make them work for music. No directions came with them and online there is next to nothing.
  • Cons: Difficult To Use

OK for casual use

123456, Staples
22 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The sound quality is adequate, but the headset is not comfortable for extended wear. The control box is big and easily gets caught on things. Cord seems to twist more easily than other headsets- probably because it is thicker. The mute control is a push button that will turn off the mic after the slightest bump, leaving you talking to no one.I purchased this because of the USB connection, but have since discovered that not all applications deal with USB headsets well.
  • Pros: Usb Connection
  • Cons: Bulky Design, Difficult To Use, Uncomfortable

Heavy, tight, and unweildy

Tired Student, Staples
7 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The device is heavy and tight fitting, even on my size 7 1/4 head. I switched back to my lightweight analog headset to use my dragon speak and will only use this monstronsity for GoToMeeting, which requires the usb. If you like to feel like you're riding in a helicopter (and I recall that those headsets weigh less) then go for these.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Bulky Design, Uncomfortable

Overcharged

Purpse, Staples
16 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Staples charges way to much for this head set. Everywhere else you can get this exact same head set brand new for under $25.00. They are charging [$], that's $14.00 more than everywhere else.

Lots of buzzing and noise

Frank, Staples
30 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Thought I was getting a deal, but I probably won't use this much as it generates a lot of strange buzzing in the headphones and is somewhat uncomfortable for me. Might try it on a laptop to see if that is any better, but have tried in a couple of different USB ports with little luck.
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: Poor Sound Quality, Uncomfortable

Not a good buy

Slightly, Staples
23 February 2011
  • Excerpt: For the price you would think you got a decent headset but you would be wrong. Within a month I notice the mic was cutting in and out and the sound in the cans started cutting out with static. Two months later I had to crack open the volume control box to see why I was getting so much static and loss of mic. The wires inside the control box were twisted and very poorly connected.
  • Pros: Comfortable
  • Cons: Poor Microphone, Poor Sound Quality

I would not buy this product ever again

Stepho, Staples
11 December 2010
  • Excerpt: The earphones are poorly connected to the headset. If you happen to drop them the earphones popout and in my case separate from the wire connecting to the speaker (internal) breaks and renders the unit useless. Granted do not drop any product, but in my case it slipped off my head and simply fell on the desk before me.
  • Cons: Bulky Design

works then breaks

Walmart
15 June 2010
  • Summary: Let me put it and let it come to your attention. At first the headset did marvelous. As it grew older in the coming weeks the mic. refused to keep working.
