Excerpt: I've had to go through two of these lifechat headset in the past year both only lasted for about 4-6 months then they start to short out and literally fall apart. They have cool sound and great noise cancelling but they really don't last long I guess that is why they are cheap.
Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound Quality, Quality Microphone
Excerpt: I bought it for some chat and a little gaming. The audio and voice queality its very decent actually very good for the price BUT if you are planing wear them for more than few minutes and your ears are size medium or kind large DO NOT buy this headset.
Excerpt: Let me first say that yes, this headset has great sound. But it is so uncomfortable that is isn't worth it. It was hard and felt like steel beams on my head. The earcups stuck to my ears. And although it wasn't too tight, it was so uncomfortable that I got a headache every time I used it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Quality Microphone
Excerpt: Unfortunately, this headset is far below the standards of quality I have come to expect. As soon as I put them on it was obvious that there was going to be no comfort level. Earpads were extremely uncomfortable, and not very soft, the headband felt like it was cutting into my scalp.
Excerpt: Volume control does not work with general applications, apparently only works with Microsoft's Live Call Skype-like phone service. Also the Windows audio mixer does not control the headphone's volume.
Excerpt: Took it out of the package and after 5 minutes of usage I had to rip it off my head. The set is way, way too tight and the pressure on the ears is painful. I put it over a basketball every night and slowly it got a little bit better.
Excerpt: I have two of these, they are used by my son and I for listening to music, gaming and voice chat. 1 has done well, the usb connection is convenient though the lack of plug and play is a little frustrating.(The software to install is easy to follow.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Ear pieces a little small, Hard To Setup, Quality sound bounces
Excerpt: Look nice... Incredibly tight on a particular person with a big head, particularly uncomfortable if you put on glasses. Caused a headache immediately after wearing for more than an hour and produced my ears sore from becoming pressed into my glasses.
