Summary: I was checking reviews for awhile before settling on these and glad I did. Good sound for gaming and a decent mic. The headset it light so it doesn't get uncomfortable. The volume control is poorly made though. It came apart trying to extract it from the package ( I had read that this is a problem ) but I just snapped it back into place. I don't use the inline volume control anyway -- I adjust using control on my keyboard.
Good value, well-designed, light and fairly comfy for smaller ears.

Summary: A good 'value' headset. I bought it for my nephew who keeps destroying headsets so I decided to get him his own to hopefully make him care more. It is light and feels solid enough for the price, it is also fairly comfortable although the ear cups are a bit small for an adult. The sound is really what you can expect for that price range, a bit weak and flat but I've tried other ones that weren't nearly as good, the mic is well designed so it doesn't get in the way.
Summary: -The cups are a hair and lint magnet (no eggs off, cosmetic nit-picking)
Pros: -For the price, you're just simply not going to find anything better than this,
Cons: -Over time (I think I'm on year two now?), the volume control potentiometer has gotten slightly corroded, as there are certain spots where only one speaker will work, or neither will work, or it will be very quiet. To fix this, I just found a good spot on the knob, and taped it into position, it works just fine. (No eggs off, easy fix)
Pros: Good entry point into Headsets incase it is your first one. It is inexpensive and gives you an idea if you need anything better. This was my first headset. I was unsure about spending 300 so I got these and a month later I upgraded.
Cons: Volume isn't as loud as I would have liked. Would like more control over mic volume.
