Summary: Great sound, including the microphone which is long enough and is noise canceling. Unfortunately the ear phones don't pivot enough horizontally, so the bottom pushes more than the top, making it uncomfortable for long term use. Good for the 1 hour web meeting, but not all day, invest in better product for that.
Summary: A good bang for your buck, you can really get the most out of these with a decent sound card. However, they're good regardless. When I first got these, I would be using terms like "awesome" and "amazing", but having them for a long time has tempered my excitement.
Pros: I'll skip the preamble and get to the point. Great sound coming in, great sound going out. And that was before I'd gotten a sound card (which made these babies even MORE amazing!). They also cancel out a good deal of outside noise when active. Fairly comfy, though this is subjective: The size of your head and ears will affect how nicely these feel. The pad at the top is an added bonus. Also fairly durable. I've dropped these a couple times and they're no worse for wea...
Cons: Still, things could be better. The mic is a set length and only has about 170 degrees of up/down movement (no horizontal movement to put it directly in front of you), making it a little difficult to find a sweet-spot. If your computer or a fan or any other noise source is to your right, your mic may pick that up. Also, and this is VERY minor, but I figured I'd mention it: It expels a lot of sound outside and away from your ears, so people around you will hear a bit of...
Great deal for the price. Sturdy and decently made, comfortable & useful.

Summary: For the price they are a great deal. You are not getting a $200 headset, you are getting a cheap headset but it works well, I have had no problems, it is confortable and it works well for phone calls and listening to audiobooks which is all I bought it for.
Excerpt: I gave it only 3 stars because I have only used the microphone on these headphones and haven't actually used them for listening. I ended up getting these to use with my HD PVR Rocket for voice overs and was pleased with the quality. It's nothing like my Rode or Shure mic, but since I needed a 3.5mm mic output, I rolled the dice on these.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Quality Microphone
Summary: I bought 3 of this , it look like had everything we need , noise cancelation, comfortable... but 1 didn't work from the start and the other 2 after a month stop working properly there was not noise cancelation and now are useless for us.
Summary: I used these everyday... on multiple computers and phones. I am on calls, Skype, etc a lot and these worked great until they "wore" out. I was careful when packing them away, and I know this was going to happen sooner or later... I was hoping for at least six months.
Pros: Great sound quality and microphone. Really awesome
Cons: Durability... lasted about 4 months before the cord from the headset started to fail.
