Summary: The wort part is the damage it does to my ears. I don't think I have large ears, but I can't really see them. Nobody has ever mocked me for them, so that's a sign in my favor. No matter how I adjust these, they hurt after a long call (30 minutes +). I just got off of a 4 hour call using these and the pain prompted me to come here and buy a new headset after I finish this review.
Pros: Excellent voice and sound clarity. Functions as well as I could ask for.
Cons: The top strap cuts into the top of my head for starters. I took a file to the sharp plastic on top to lessen the pain, but it's definitely still there. I'm sure the fact that I am folliclly challenged has much to do with that however. If I'm on a long call, I usually get classy and place an ankle sock on the top of my head before putting on the headset. Working from home is a plus if using this method.
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. I took it back to the store for a refund.
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. Sound quality for music was amateur at best, and when using them for communications, reports were that the microphone was extremely scratchy, sort of like an old home wireless phone that was...
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. So, the only way to control the volume is with the particular application's volume control - if it has one. But the sound and the mike are great.
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. The ear buds are covering the ear completely and are pressing against the jaw. This also leads to "hot ears" and wearing the set for more than 30 minutes is simply not possible.
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. Though the voice chat program Microsoft included is a pain) Headset 2 developed a pecularity in a weeks time the sound shifts between the ear pieces, then sometimes plays on both, during conversations. It's distracting.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Ear pieces a little small, Hard To Setup, Quality sound bounces
