Summary: Unexpectedly durable. Overall this has been a good value basic mic for me, used regularly for gaming purposes. Being a airheaded fool, there have been several occasions where I've let it's wire get caught on my chair, and violently yanked on it by accident when moving or getting up. Some of these yanks I immediately feared I'd surely killed it, but it's been fine each time. So far it's survived just over one year of frequent use and moderate abuse.
Summary: Very nice headphones, especially if you like being aware of whats around you at the same time as gaming and talking to your friends. The microphone is briliant, ive been told by the people ive talked to over skype, keeps most noise away but your voice. The headphone itself is decent enough for the price not really gonna get better than this for such a great price.
beware - standard line in/out phones don't work ...

Summary: beware - standard line in/out phones don't work with a MacPro. Nothing against the hardware, it's more a shortcoming with the mac. I can't comment on the audio quality, but build wise they're very light (good) but also a little small and tight and without much in way of adjustment, particularly on the 'non-headphone side, which I could feel causing discomfort within the few minutes I was trying to get them to work.
It's a fairly simple headset that does exactly what it's supposed to.

Summary: Why and bought it, and what it does well for me: 2 people sitting right next to each other wont be picked up by both microphones - you can even have music playing on your speakers without that being picked up by the microphone even though your voice does. The microphone can be flipped 180 degrees with allows you to choose whether you want to have your left or right ear free. All in all a good headset for the price.
Summary: Perfect for windows voice recognition. Wanted to try voice recognition, but unsure if would use in future, so chose cheap headphones, intending to upgrade later. No need to upgrade, these work perfectly, recognise even unusual words with no problems. They fit comfortably, and are easily adjustable, with a microphone that swings out of the way when not needed. Really good buy at this price.
Summary: Bought this headset to use with Dragon software,they work very well ,the dragon software was easy to use and never missed anything i translated though the mike.These headphone may be cheap but they work well ,they are not suitable for listening to music,but for dragon speaking software they are fine.
Summary: I tried using these with Windows XP and ended up looking at something I haven't seen for a long, long time: The BSoD (Blue Screen of Death). I unplugged them, rebooted and there were no problems at all. Then, later, I plugged them back in, and in short order ended up looking at the BSoD again. I am by no means a noob when it comes to computing and fully appreciate that conflicts capable of calling the BSoD are usually two-sided affairs.
