Excerpt: Good quality, simple Plug 'n Play device. The earpads are a bit hot, as all of them of this size seem to be. I have noticed some voice feedback into the earphone, which may need some programming that I haven't yet done. The headband is tighter than I would like, but overall, I'm fairly satisfied with this set, but they are a little heavy.
Excerpt: Very good product. Covers both ears making you hear conversations very well, without hearing outside noise. One thing though, there is no cushion on the top of the headset which sits on your head. If you are using it for long periods of time, it would feel uncomfortable.
Excerpt: I bought this headset to use while videoconferencing, and it does a decent job. I am using it with a Mac mini, and OS X recognized it as soon as I plugged it into a USB port. You can then turn on and off the headphones and mic independently if you have other sound gear hooked up to your Mac using the System Preferences > Sound menu. The earcups enclose your ears and the sound quality is acceptable.
Summary: My son has had about a dozen different makes and models of headphones and he claims that these are the most clear all around for gaming and for Skype. He says that they are okay for music so he is very happy as an all around headphones. I was just happy about the price and they seem durable so far. Better then spending $50-100 headsets that break in a few months.
