Summary: I've had these for a couple of months and for those months they were amazing. One day the right speaker just stopped working... And would work if I wiggled the cord some, and only worked in one position which means there was a fray inside the cable. Buyer beware.
Excerpt: I got this almost 2 years ago and its still going strong just like day one. In fact I'm using it right now to listen to music! this headset is super comfortable and has very good sound. This can compare to my music headsets really well. The mic is very nice on this, I use Skype a lot with my friends when I game on games like Battlefield 4, Counter Strike: GO, and Garry's Mod, and they say my mic is one of the best they've ever heard, and they have 60-80 dollar headsets.
Summary: Just a heads up, the Plantronics .audio 355 is the exact same model as this, and is about $12 cheaper. Only difference is this one has cloth ear cushions, and the red trim pieces. Over the past 8 years, I've owned and went through about 6 or 7 of these headsets. I'm not hard on them, but I'm not really easy on them either, and they certainly get used. Normally one would give up and perhaps get a better quality one, right?
Pros: -As title says, fantastic sound quality with great bass -Comfortable -Good mic
Cons: -The wire build quality, and volume control box -Above ^ x100
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.
Summary: Used PT headsets for years all last only about 11months why they have 1yr warranty.
Pros: it fits your head about it
Cons: Sound is a disgrace the cheaper older versions of Plantronics HP have 2x the sound quality. Games cannot hear nothing much. Movies ok if you use VLC media player and boost sound to 150% then they sound normal.
Excerpt: Got it from Best Buy for $20... BEST THING EVER! My brother bot a $60 headset and the sound quality of those speakers are actually worse! Even though it doesn't come with a foam cover on the mic, it is insanely flexible. Just an awesome headset. YOU DO NEED A 3.5mm MICROPHONE AND A 3.5mm HEADPHONE JACK TO RUN ALL THE FEATURES OF THIS PRODUCT.
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.
