Good Sound Quality. Cheap Plastic

STEPHEN D., Newegg
29 January 2015
  • Summary: I would recommend it for the price I suppose if you are aware that they are fragile. I think Ill spend the extra 30 though and get something a bit better constructed.
  • Pros: Sounded great. Clear mic. Good price.
  • Cons: Plastic snapped after a couple weeks when putting it on my head where the plastic gets thinner and the speakers adjust.

Not for gamers

James B., Newegg
9 February 2014
  • Summary: If you want a good gaming headset invest in an Astro. They have an a38 bluetooth headset with twice the battery life, or just get a wired 140 so you never have to worry about charge and you get over-the-ear comfort.
  • Pros: This is a very decent headset for light to medium practical usage for the office, playing some music, or talking a little bit on skype. It is on-ear but more comfortable than most alternatives
  • Cons: Your ears will hurt eventually and this is not intended for heavy usage by a gamer, hence my two eggs because I was frustrated that I got something at a $100 price emark that wasn't really suited for my needs just cuz it was wireless The battery dies on me every session while I'm playing and I ha...

Don't Buy This One

Epic S., Newegg
6 December 2012
  • Summary: I agree with the other comments that this item is just plain odd shaped and the weight is unbalanced. I disagree with comments such as "don't be lazy, recharge it". Be real.
  • Pros: Fairly comfortable, I can wear it for several hours. I have a slightly big head (just ask my wife). Sound quality is above average. The mic is clear and so is the sound. Nothing earth shattering but it's a decent clear sound. I do get good range out of this headset, 40ft through walls. However, i...
  • Cons: WORST THING is the battery issue. There are many wireless gaming headsets that allow you to operate while charging the battery, which is why I say DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL. Go for something that can operate while charging. When the battery goes dead during the middle of your business call or dragon ...

Do not recomend

Phil W., Newegg
2 August 2012
  • Pros: -Long Battery life (I use it for work and can go an 8 hour work day without charging it and I talk on it all day) -Mute works nicely
  • Cons: -Wireless range is horrible (Cuts out when I step out of the room that the receiver is in, heck it cuts out sometimes sitting right next to it) - There is a lot of static on the line and people you talk to sometimes sound like a robot/under water/garbled and have had people comment that I sounded...

User Review

Bryan J., Newegg
25 October 2011
  • Pros: Cheap. Wireless.
  • Cons: Can't use while charging. Cuts out a lot makes everyone sound like robots. The USB dongle is VERY VERY flimsy, mine broke on me after about 6 months of use, now the whole thing is useless you can't even buy a replacement I'll spend a bit more next time or get a wired headset

Not so hot

Charles S., Newegg
16 September 2011
  • Summary: See cons. To elaborate a little, these are uncomfortable to wear and have an annoying high pitched in-range/out-of-range tone that scratches your brain like fingernails on your eardrum.
  • Pros: Good sound quality within range
  • Cons: Poor range, usb connection drops out unexpectedly (not related to range), super short charging cord, can't use while charging, takes 4 hours to charge, small ear cups are uncomfortable, Newegg charges for restock on this item, but handled my RMA questions with professionalism

Can't use while charging

asdf d., Newegg
7 September 2011
  • Summary: I cannot believe that they would make a wireless headset that cannot be used while charging. Yes, I do own a wireless headset from a different brand. Yes I can use it while it charges. Why shouldn't I expect to? Glad I bought them for my son and not myself.
  • Pros: Overall quality good. Sound quality is good. It operates fine.
  • Cons: It cannot be used while charging. Unbelievable. I should have read the reviews and not just looked at the overall score. My fault.

Okay headset

Ryan B., Newegg
12 August 2011
  • Summary: Would not buy or recommend as the audio scrambling gets really annoying after the first few times. I like the company, but this is by far not one of their better products.
  • Pros: Very comfortable over long periods of time. Really nice sound quality. Good microphone.
  • Cons: Short battery life. Can not use while charging. Audio scrambling is frequent and quite annoying.

you get what you pay for

william z., Newegg
7 May 2011
  • Summary: not worth it. for the price you can get a much better wired headset. it would probably work better if it had a program to run it or drivers. it relies on plain plug and play windows drivers so you really cant do things like set mic sensitivity ect.
  • Pros: Cheap, Wireless
  • Cons: On skype and other voice chats people tell me there is a low humm like wind blowing. even with my fan turned off ect it sounds like wind blowing when im silent. so much for the supposed "noise cancelling also. out of nowhere all sounds will sound distorted. aka people sound like robots. music get...
